By EMILY MULLEN

PORTLAND, Ore. (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — Wintry weather in Portland gave these African painted dog pups at the Oregon Zoo their first snow day Tuesday.

Accompanied by two adult dogs, the pups chased one another around their snowy enclosure, and some of them even sampled the white stuff.

As the zoo put it on Instagram: “Snowbody is cuter than these frosty painted dog pups.”

Watch the Oregon Zoo’s African painted dog pack play in snow for first time


There will be days.

When the sun won’t shine.

And it feels like the whole world is against you.

But don’t be afraid, other days will include videos of a dozen African painted dog pups playing in the snow for the first time.

Ella, an African painted dog at the Oregon Zoo, had a litter of 12 puppies late last year.

The three-month-old pups took in the snowy scene at the zoo on Tuesday.

Snow-dusted noses and unbridled joy followed.

Enjoy.

Here are African elections to watch out for in 2019


In 2018, different presidential elections took place around Africa, and for many, it was the continuation of the status quo. Elections in Cameroon and Egypt resulted in re-elections for usual suspects Paul Biya and Abdel Fattah El-Sisi respectively, while the ruling party in Zimbabwe, ZANU-PF continued its reign in the country’s politics as Emmerson Mnangagwa was elected president after his former boss Robert Mugabe stepped down in 2017. In others, it meant the end of the status quo, as the people of Sierra Leone, Madagascar, and the Democratic Republic Congo voted in new leaders.

As 2019 kicks off, many consequential and important elections are set to hold on the African continent. Although many of the democratic systems on the continent are weak and vulnerable to political instability,…
