    Sorry TJ –

  24. y’know, as much as I’m a kitty person, and as ga-ga as I get over kittehs, I have to say personally that nothing I have seen so far beats the cheeky cuteness of a little otter-with-muzzlepuff. Gotta be the most darling little face EVER.

  35. lyrics du jour, channeling “fiddler on the roof”

    Snowdrop has webby paws –
    muzzle puff, muzzle puff
    and no apparent flaws –
    muzzle puff, muzzle puff
    those little beady eyes
    make Cute-hogs rhapsodize
    An otter mensch is this pup!

  36. 2 words: webbed footsies!

    *gasp* *screeeeeeeee* *faint*

  37. My milk! MINE! What a cutie.

  42. A pound, pence, or even a shilling
    Could all have an otter
    If the Queen was willing

    If she was, to tell the truth
    There’d be no more spending
    The currency was too cute!


  44. Otter love! Otter joy! Otter cuteness!

  45. Theo-

    Love the faux Latin verb-conjugation-noun-declension-liguistic-mish-mash of OTTERS!!!!

    Such a cutie (the otter, not Theo – though I don’t know Theo, could be true of both).

  46. Veni, vidi, vici!
    (Vah! Denuone latine loquebar? Me ineptum. Interdum modo elabitur.)

  47. Henry Beard is a great man. I’m a Latin teacher, and his books have always helped keep students interested. BTW, otter in Latin = “lutra”. (Just to keep things somewhat on topic.)

  48. I was hoping there might be an otter in a bib in this series.

  49. Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?

  51. hrh.squeak says:

    How much milk would an otter drink if an otter could drink milk? A *lots*, I betcha.
