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.



  1. I like the reinpeeg.

  2. Adorable! I think we have a new star here…

  3. 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)*

  4. and I like your new species name!!

  5. He’s absolutely adorbs!…and could quite rightly appear in Tocktober, Nosevember and even FebrEARary and for the EYEdes of March. I’m in luv (again).

    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.

  10. (are we bereft of a GP Hoovertext?? or iz Ah dooin sump’n wrong???)

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

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

  13. moi aussi, s.v.p.

  14. Swine Forkbeard, king of Pigland.

  15. Guinea-deer

  16. No hovertext??

  17. sabrina rose says:

    Yes indeed! Maybe at some point Laura and Pumpkin would be willing to share those pictures with fellow peeg enthusiasts at CO!

  18. that also works for me!!Quite nice indeed!!

  19. Zoomed in and corrected with a CUTE OVERLOAD NINJA HOTFIX!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. 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…

  21. Oui, oui!

  22. lisaLASSIE says:

    ty Emmm 🙂

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

  24. 4leafclover says:

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

  25. 4leafclover says:

    Yes!! I call “nepotism”!!

  26. yes, I wondered the same …

  27. I’m gonna park my butt right here until I see the other 11 months. You make us fall in loff with Pumpkin and then you just walk away. What a tease!!

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

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

  30. Your wish is my command, here’s the link to the rest of the photos. Enjoy!

  31. la muerte peludaaaa!!!

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

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