Rule Of Cuteness #58 (Follow-Up)

We’ve been getting some emails in relating to our latest Rule which went up two days ago. (“If you’re flyin’ with one flap up, that’s cute.)

“As you can imagine, we are TOTALLY psyched for ROC #58. In case you run into any challenges to the new Rule, I share theis photo of my dog, Harry (full name, Harry Lyme VanOccupanther). Note the amazing control he seems to have ( I’ve named it :Independent, Individuated, Graduated Single-Flap control™!) Thanks for your website- it makes me happy every single day no matter what.” -Clare.


Pamela S. writes: “I run a home dog boarding business and each time we get a new guest, I take their photo to post to my blog to give prospective customers a better idea of what we’re about. I’d taken pics of our last guest, Daisy, as usual and the best one – I felt – was one with one ear up and one ear down. I’d even blogged that it must have followed one of your Rules of Cuteness. I just didn’t realise that it was a rule that had yet to be written!”




  1. so cute

  2. They are so adorable!

  3. Clare – love the “Third Man” reference! Harry is very handsome.

    Pamela S., I think taking a pic of each doggie guest is also a great idea because if (heaven forbid) one of them sneaks off for an adventure, you have a current pic to help find them. Daisy is a sweetie – I love how she’s modeling every ear style!

  4. What a couple of cuties! Love the ears!

  5. Daisy could do the “Y.M.C.A.” dance with her ears.

  6. Harry and his people are so honored and delighted that he was featured in CO!! Thank you all!!
