As you may or may not know, I love to share a good video on Earth Day. Last year, I featured a dog kissing the world. (Earth Day also fell on a Friday last year, so it was perfectly timed for a linkathon.)
This year, I’m digging the video I shared on Earth Day 2010 out of the archives – I had just started the blog a few weeks before. Given that I probably had one reader then (counting myself), I figured it was worth sharing again.
So, without further ado, I give you my hero…
To borrow from myself, here’s what I said last time. I think it still applies:
“Captain Pug. He’s my hero. Going to take pollution down to zero. He is cuteness magnified, and he’s fighting on the planet’s side. (Hat tip to Captain Planet for infiltrating my brain for decades.) I mean, seriously… how cute and well-trained is this pug? Also, if anyone knows how I can join that dog’s carpool, please let me know. Best. Commute. Ever.
Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! Puppies! By your powers combined, he is Captain Pug, the cutest superhero ever.”
As a bonus (and so that I’m not just repeating myself), enjoy these photos I took at the National Zoo yesterday. Lions and flamingos and birds, oh my!
Happy Earth Day, folks.
