As promised from my previous post, here is Hippo. He works at the front desk of lHermitage hotel in Vancouver. Apparently he handles guest relations, mascot duties, and the occasional broom chasing. I asked him if I could take his picture, he agreed, then jumped up on this bench and posed for me. I snapped some photos as he made some cute faces. Or for Hippo, just faces, they were always cute. Eventually, the broom was too much for him, he had to go chase it.

  1. I’d travel to Vancouver just to see Hippo! What a character.

  2. No doubt Barb! Next time we go, I am packing treats just for him. Great little guy full of character.
