On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and—Pumpkin?

santa maxMax Stubbular reporting. Our first Holiday Overload winner is here!

Sender-Inner Laura says: “This is Pumpkin! We dressed him up for 12 different photos for a year-long calendar. This is January! He was a total ham!”

Did SOMEone say…calendar? Laura—we’re sending you the 2013 CO Calendar. Just ‘cuz.

  3. Guinea-deer

  6. sabrina rose says:

  7. OMG twigs = antlers????

    *awards Nobel Prize for Guinea Pig Diorama Creativity to Laura
    (or, by proxy, to whomever came up with the Twig/ Antlers Idea)*

  8. I second that Fird….with jingle-belled pom poms.

    It’s the latest from Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans… And they do mean -every- flavour!

  13. lisaLASSIE says:

    Absolutely adorable! And I like the “…he was a HAM…” comment. BUT: an important and serious question just forced itself through the fog of cute into my brain. I am sorry to bring suspicion into the pristine confines of CO, but the question is: could Max Stubbular have chosen this pic not because it is hilarious, clever, original and completely adorable, but because the peeg is STUBBULARLY SHAPED? Did Max show bias toward stubbularity? I shall be up all night worrying about this.

  14. 4leafclover says:

    Yes!! I call “nepotism”!!

  15. *stumbling in with stacks of blankets, pillows, snacks and cuddleables* since I’m sure you won’t be alone in your pondering

  16. lisaLASSIE says:

  20. Oh! I REALLY want to see the other 11 months of Pumpkin! Please!

  21. moi aussi, s.v.p.

  22. Oui, oui!

  23. My thoughts exactly! I really want to see the additional 11 pics! I want to pet his nose and hear him squeak!

  24. I want to rub that softest part behind those foldy ears!

  25. Swine Forkbeard, king of Pigland.

  26. Gangewifre says:

    Is anyone else in desperate need of seeing the 11 other g-peeg photos!? PUH-LEASE!? I’m on the edge of my seat…

  27. Yay! But may I ask… why is January the Christmas photo?

  28. yes, I wondered the same …

  29. I don’t know if this will work, but here’s a link from the submitter’s blog:

  30. It works! And does not disappoint! Thanks!
