Water sports is of course another great example of Summer fun. Fifteen year-old Eddie the otter looks like he is having a blast. He lives in the Oregon Zoo and he loves playing basketball. You can read more about him at the link below.

Summer is in full swing here, and what else is Summer for than to have fun? Blue Bear and I will both be vacation having fun, so we figured that our next set of posts will have “Summer Fun” as their theme.

It seems to me that this doggy is having a great time on a swing. I remember when my grandmother used to take my sister and I to the park and push us on the swing. It was always so much fun!

Prairie dogs are so adorable. When these young pups grow up, they will reach somewhere between 30 and 40 cm in length, including their tail, and weigh somewhere between 0.5 and 1.5 kg, according to Wikipedia’s Prairie Dog article.

It seems like there are many pictures of hamsters eating and often the food of choice is broccoli! This hamster is clearly enjoying his meal. You know how parents often have a hard time getting their kids to eat broccoli? I bet you could just show them this picture and it would do the trick.

We are currently experiencing a heat-wave here, and it’s hard not to break into a sweat as soon as you step outside. Blue Bear sent me this adorable picture and I knew I had to post it. If I could, I most certainly would send this puppy one of those sesame street-themed kid-pools, now wouldn’t you? What a cutie.

I was browsing reddit’s aww section when I stumbled upon this adorable dog making one of the goofiest facial expressions ever. It even made me laugh out loud and I hope he has the same effect on you. I believe this is a chihuahua, but please correct me if I’m wrong.

The other day, I left my computer for about one minute and when I came back, I found this adorable picture on my computer. Of course, it was Blue Bear who was responsible. Stumbling upon this chihuahua puppy brought a huge smile to my face, and I knew I’d have to post him on ACAD.

The other day, as I walked into my kitchen, I looked outside and noticed a fuzzy bird on the wire. I couldn’t see the details up close, but I noticed that this bird was unlike any I had seen before. I ran to grab a camera, went outside, and luckily was able to snap a few shots of this beauty. With the details visible thanks to our digital camera, I was able to find out that the bird in question was actual a cedar waxwing. Isn’t the bird beautiful?
