Eugene the Black Rhino
Obviously not a dog, but Eugene died this morning. I don't think the cause of death as officially been released yet, so suffice it to say it was age-related. He was 32 years old. I was fortunate enough to visit him (though not up close and personal) a week and a half ago, and I am SO thankful I did. I got a few last photos of him to remember him by. He wasn't MINE, but he was my favorite rhino, and such an awesome guy. He was always so happy to get a bath or to get back scratches, and he LOOOOOOVED bananas. He lost the tip of his tail a few years ago, so he was always easy to pick out from the other rhinos. He once charges at me when Bibi was in heat and gave me a nice little scare and a greater respect for what these animals are capable of, but he really was a big sweet boy that loved to be loved on.
RIP big guy, you will be sorely missed
Here's the official announcement from the zoo:
He had my slightly worried at first because he was sleeping VERY soundly like this, but he was just being his goofy self.
Wake up sleepy head!
