This pic if for sheer cuteness factor. It's Masisi who some of you have adopted iwth Mistique, the resident guard dog. what is even more cute about this is that normally the bonobos terrorise Mistique. Mwanda was always chasing her, and Boyoma, of course used to bite her tail. Mistique was always very patient, and she has two puppies of her own now. but when Masisi saw her, she ran up to her and cuddled her like she was a big fluffy toy. Masisi even put her fingers in Mistique's mouth and chewed on her ear. It was totally adorable, all the mamas were very excited.
