Here, the Shedd Aquarium's rescued baby otter is eating and drinking and playing and squeaking. She has a wind up toy lobster and a tiny otter-sized basketball. Her ball-handling skills are pretty crappy thus far. I would not consider playing Pup 681 as a point guard; maybe a power forward.

On Tuesday, November 18, the pup will participate in a live Google hangout. You bet your otter ass that the sheer joy of participating in a Google hangout with a baby otter will cause me to burst into tears, Kristen Bell-with-sloth style.

Until then,
