The Dallas Zoo hosted a first birthday party for its cheetah Winspear and black labrador Amani. Born three days apart, the two animals have been inseparable since they were two months old. To stay cool in the Texas heat, the two savored a red-white-and-blue popsicle made of “30 gallons of water, 2% milk, and low-sodium chicken broth for flavoring.”
