  1. Oh. Em. Gee……that last pic just about kills me! As does the pup doing a great impression of Mr. Burns 🙂

  2. Photo number 3 looks like he’s saying his prayers :
    Now I lay me down to sleep
    A bag of cawfish at my feet
    If I die before I wake
    Give them to my brother Jake.
    (with my appologies to M. Cosby)

  3. I only wish this guy had been on the ballot last November. 🙂

  4. He gets my nom-imation. And a majority of stoats.

  5. Yay! Thanks for posting this! The otters get my vote every. single. time.

    The hovertext for pic three is perfection!

  7. i thought that crab claw was a glass bowl

  8. I can longer see pictures of otters without thinking of Benedict Cumberbatch. So, a double win.
