Tessa had a little lamb and it's fleece was white as snow! This German shepherd is guarding her new best friend in Adel. The lamb was one of triplets and was born with a leg that didn't develop properly. So the family took her in and Tessa decided this lamb was hers!

If baby animals warm your heart, how about these adorable eaglets! We thank the Raptor Resource project for sharing this from the nest cam in Decorah. We are told they are  "spunky little spitfires".  There are lots of great pictures and links to the webcams here. And check out their Facebook page as well!

Don't forget your favorite music! The Des Moines Symphony is having some fun showing us what their musicians are doing in isolation, including a 20 second song to promote proper hand washing.  They are also hosting live-streamed recitals here. Check their social media and look for #DMSOatHome.
