See the Sheep-Goat Hybrid That's Delighting Ireland (Video)

Update 04/07/2014 11:00 AM Originally posted 04/07/2014 09:00 AM

Of all the unnatural animal hybrids we can think of, this is perhaps the cutest: A farmer in Ireland's County Kildare has come into possession of a rare "geep" – that's half goat, half sheep.

The baby geep is the result of a randy goat sowing its wild oats among Patrick Murphy's herd of sheep. Assuming the animals couldn't mate, he let the forbidden love run its course.

In March, Murphy received the fruits of his mistake: a furry bundle of joy, which he showed off to Ireland's Farmers Journal.

Murphy told the Irish Times that he knew immediately the hybrid was not a normal baby sheep: "He's fast like a deer. You'd have to put him in a pen to catch him."

Adopt Me! Missy the Greyhound Has Beauty & Brains

Originally posted 04/04/2014 06:30 PM

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. In honor of Adopt-a-Greyhound Month, we'd like you to meet Missy, a 3-year-old former racing dog who has been waiting too long for her forever home.

This beautiful and friendly pup comes from good stock, with both of her parents having made names for themselves on the track. Missy (short for Missing You) was adopted into a loving home shortly after she retired from racing, but sadly she was returned when the family decided they no longer had time for her.

Ever since Ellen DeGeneres took the mother of all selfies at the Oscars last month, people everywhere have been trying to top it. Well, it appears someone finally has – a koala.

The cuddly residents of the Wild Life Sydney Zoo are the latest members of the animal kingdom to become selfie-obssessed. When a camera was set up on a moveable tripod in their enclosure a few weeks ago, Bruce, Aaron and Bill immediately started posing for snaps.

Jayden, a 6-year-old with Type 1 diabetes, likes to look out the window in his room at the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. The Houston Zoo is located across the street, so he's trying to see the animals.

"We always drive by the zoo to get to the hospital," says his mother. "He had mentioned, 'Mommy, I just want to go to the zoo.' "

But thanks to a little technology, Jayden didn't have to leave his hospital bed to see jaguars, giraffes and sea lions.

There's a long history at PEOPLE Pets of animals carrying out the dreams of our editors. Last September, Joseph Gordon-Levitt planted a kiss on a kitten. Before that, Tom Hardy puckered up to a pooch. Today, we add two more to that illustrious list: a pair of huskies fortunate enough to cuddle Benedict Cumberbatch.

The British actor recently graced the cover of High Life magazine, the in-flight publication of British Airways, and the cover story's writer took to Twitter to share some precious outtakes from the shoot.
