Penguin here.

First of all, we wish all our US readers a Happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at ACAD.

If I’m not mistaken, the doggy here is a dachshund! Whatever the case, these two look like they get along together very well.
I found this gif on reddit with the very appropriate title, “LET ME BOOP YOU!!!” This little gif is too adorable for words. Enjoy everyone.

I’m not quite sure why there’s a picture of meerkats, which are desert animals, playing in maple tree leaves, but this picture is really cute. Naturally, I wanted to share it with you guys.
I’ve personally never liked autumn all that much, because it can get very cold around here. I have to admit that the leaves are beautiful though, and it is always fun to see animals playing in them.

As you guys probably know by now, I love dachshunds and would absolutely love to have one someday. Anyway, I stumbled upon this gif on reddit the other day, and I can’t stop watching it now. Just be sure to keep watching until it loops again. Enjoy, everyone!

Blue Bear and I are on vacation, and we’re going to visit a zoo where we’ll be seeing pandas in person for the very first time. We’re so excited! I chose to post this picture for that reason, and also because I used to love going on the slide at the park when I was little. I hope I looked even 1/2 as cute as this adorable fuzzy panda does!

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!

Elephants are always so adorable, but this one takes the cake.
I bet you can’t look at this picture without immediately smiling. This baby elephant is having a great time, and you can’t help but share his/her enthusiasm.

UPDATE: – According to Kim Rabbeni, this elephant is actually from Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Apparently you see this impressive display on their Jungle Cruise. Well they certainly tricked Penguin and I! We both thought it was a real baby elephant. They did a wonderful job on this sculpture.
