“The turtle was only here for a brief visit, it’s not ours and it doesn’t really have a name! The bunny’s name is Nijn (Dutch abbreviation of konijn = rabbit).” -David & Barbara

’cause I wanted to walk out there, then I wanted to walk back in here, but should I walk out there, or go back in here, or stay out, or walk back in, or go back out… there.

(sigh) FINE! I couldn’t help it! Lemme out there! I think. Wait. On second thought… I’ll stay in here. Maybe.

Christie the cat all blowed up, by Tammy S. of RowdyKittens.
“I have a rather floofy looking affenpinscher called Frank. Frank and I live in a really, very windy city called Wellington, New Zealand. Anyhoo, he and I went on our evening run to the top of a nearby hill where Frank romped around smelling the smells of many thousands of hectares which were being brought directly to his noz thanks to the particularly crazy wind we’re having today. I took some pics of him thinking, “YAAAAAAHHHHHHH THIS IS SO FREAKING AWESOME!!!” Which in fairness to Frank is what he thinks about life most of the time.” -Emma
