November 4, 2008: Monkey Guard Dog

Since today is the culmination of a whole lot of nationwide griping and dissent, I thought we needed a good heartwarmer even though it's not Friday.




Keepers at Jiaozuo City Zoo have given an orphan monkey its own guard dog, because the other primates in the cage were bullying it. After being forced to intervene to save its life several times, they settled upon the trained canine, named Sai Hu, and are happy to report that it has been very successful.

"Whenever the baby monkey gets bullied, he dashes up and drives the others away. And the baby monkey is also very smart. Each time he smells danger he runs to jump on the dog's back and holds on tight. The alpha male monkey has been really unhappy since we sent in Sai Hu. He tried to organise several ambushes on the little monkey, but they all failed because of the dog," said a zoo spokesman.

That's quite a smug mug on the monkey! And thanks for the warm fuzzy, Clodfobble. It made me smile.

Clod, why did you post an unhappy monkey story?

Poor alpha monkey. Worked hard all his life to get where he is, then some little upstart gets beaten up a few times and calls the waahaambulance.

You'd think that, on this most holy of all American days, someone could have found a picture of a donkey and an elephant engaged in sexual congress for the IOTD.

Whew...good thing I read the article. At first glance, I thought it was a photo of lumberjim's prom night. It would have explained a lot.

Now, as we're celebrating, I suggest no recipes, let's take the IOTD to BDs Mongolian BBQ and see what they make of them. Stir-fry-wise....
