I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?

What a Mixed Family....

Aren't they adorable? It's been a while since I've posted a cute animal photo, but this one seems appropriate for the time being. Here's the caption:

In this photo released by China's Xinhua News Agency, a dog feeds tiger triplets and her own puppy, right, at the Paomaling Zoo in Jinan, capital of east China's Shandong Province, Wednesday, May 16, 2007. The tiger triplets were rejected by their mother shortly after their birth. (AP Photo/Xinhua, Lu Chuanquan)
I've talked briefly about adoption before, but I want to take the chance to mention it once again. Notice how not a single one of those babies looks like the mama dog...not even her own flesh and blood puppy. She's still feeding them as her own, though, and will treat them as her own in every other way, too (until the zoo steps in here, of course). Kudos to all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, friends of the family--and the list goes on and on--who have stepped up and taken in children that they haven't given birth to themselves.
