A yak card :)

Yes, I know it is a bison!  A Plains Bison to be exact.  But to me they will always be lovingly thought of, with a smile and a chuckle, as yaks... 

When my oldest son was starting kindergarten he was on the school bus on his first day of school.  I was the bus driver and the route traveled along a section of Elk Island National Park fence.  I stopped the bus along the fence to pick up some children who lived across the road from the park.  There was a big bison bull grazing along the edge of the fence.  As the students were boarding the bus, I heard a little voice excitedly whispering, "mom, mom, mom!" over and over again. 

After I had greeted the children and they were making their way to their seats, I looked over at my son.  His eyes were big as saucers.  I ask, "what is it , sweetie?" 

With eyes still wide and with much joy and excitement he announced, "I SAW A YAK!"
