Study break material!

March 10, 2010 —

We all love to browse adorable things online, admit it. And sometimes taking a cuteness break is a good way for your brain to refresh. And what’s cuter than animals?! So here’s a few of my new faves….

Be a fan of Giant George, the world’s tallest dog. Judging from his Facebook status updates, George is quite clever!

Also, look up Noah’s Ark clubhouse, a rescue refuge with a lion, tiger & bear. Watch some of their YouTube videos and enjoy the amazing animals!

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.

    Wow, that is one huge dog. In the photo album, it looks like he has a twin mattress for a doggy bed :)

    It would be interesting to see his parents, as I wonder if it is something that is genetic or if he is just big…
