    What about the little guy needing breast fed though? That’s going to be a tough act to follow! Aye?

    [@Suze] Thanks for the reassurance. I was getting so misty-eyed by this story that my mascara was ruining my beard. No further comments, please. :-)

    [@JMJ] Please do! Ooohing and Awwwwwing aren’t limited to gender, and you won’t lose any “man points” either (an Ashraf term) :)

    Is this a Suze/Susanne/Suzy/etc. female only thing or can a guy get in on the Ooohing and Awwwwwing act?

    I “second” that, Susanne! This reminds me of Gladys, the baby gorilla that was rejected by her mother several months ago, and then “raised” by zoo workers at the Cincinnati Zoo who wore gorilla-like costumes until she was old enough to be introduced to (and accepted by) her “surrogate” mom.

    I hope this baby panda is adopted/accepted too. Thankfully the researcher was sympathetic :)

    Now that is a **serious** Awwwww moment.
