Hello there! Pet Month continues at the Museum this week and, as the resident T-Rex, I am savoring every moment of it. There are tons of pet related events for me to pick from every day, but my newest shenanigans is actually a business venture. I teamed up with some of my oldest friends to form a band, named Tiny and the Hooligans. I’m obviously the front man, with my incredible homemade keytar and matching boots. The Hooligans are Allie the Alligator, Kody the Koala, Owen the Owl, and Franny the Ferret. We may seem like an unlikely bunch of friends but we go way back. Check out the stage set our friends in The Makers Studio created for us! It’s the perfect place for us to create our cool tunes.

Life in such an awesome band isn’t always easy and there is plenty of cool stuff for me to do when I finally do put my keytar down. The mouse from one of my favorite books If You Give A Mouse A Cookie  is visiting this week and sharing stories about awesome pets. I’ve also been helping our Artist in Residence, Jen Richardson-Greene, create floral arrangements. What I lack in wingspan, I make up for in creativity! Check out our calendar for dates and times when you can help her too.

What adventures will you join me for this week?
