Mom Taxi XXX: “You Hoomins Need A Lift?”

So there ya are, just kayaking off the Argentinian coast, and minding your own biz. Oh, look. A nice whale. And hmmm, he’s comin’ pretty close and OH HE’S RIGHT UNDER US AND OH HE IS LIFTING US IN THE AIR.

(Ran the YT text thru the Bing translator and got: “A later incredible, lots of sunshine, kayaking and whale. While we watched from above the kayak, one of the whales if it turned and came to our address and we lifted the boat twice!”)

The Big O

photoPeople, this is Otis AKA The Big O- he was a terrific Christmas present for his hoomin, as we hear from Sarah S. “This is little Otis. We adopted him from Long Beach Animal Care Services in December 2013.”

“He likes to play with big dogs, play fetch with his toys, and will allow you to pet him all day long! He makes me Overload with Cuteness!”

The Ballad Of Waldo Longfellow

Clipboard01There is a basset hound named Waldo
He loves to sleep and play
Besides those two things, he likes to eat
And that’s pretty much his day.

A part time troublemaker and full time studio dog
That’s his stock in trade
So here are some shots of The Big W
In Portland they were made.

The “Summer Of Goats” Continues!

Here’s the latest entry in the 2014 “Summer Of Goats,” and this one in fact dates back to 2012. Whatever. “Buttermilk” plays the game “Hit N Run Goat” twice! Little Black Goatster gets plastered once, then BM comes back later to finish the job!

Laughing Squeeeeed.

“I’m attaching a photo of my grand dog, Frodo. Or Frodo-de-o-do-do. I didn’t know until this weekend that among his many skills, he’s an excellent skipper of his ship. He owns my son John and wife Jennifer, who took the photo. An avid reader who is hoping that this amazing picture makes the grade, Julia O.”

Well, Well, LOOK Who Has A New Playhouse

Cuteporter Andrew Y. spotted these on Maru’s page and sagely observed, “Maybe a video soon.” (Hovers in Mugumogu-speak.)

“I. Have. Had. Enough. Of. YOU!!!!”*

This puppeh has had all he can take from this rather benign piece of wood. He’s mad as h*** and ain’t gonna take it no more.

“….with a sweet grey kitten this morning when this bystander kept attacking me, then diving inside my camera bag. I’m going to need a security guard/bouncer one of these days!”

I Would Swear That’s A Smile In The Last Photo

Got a weak spot for owls and I cannot lie. The only thing that would improve these photos is if they were from The Big J. Submitter Tom H. explains: “Owls are very cool, but owlets are cute beyond imagining. I took these photos during a banding in the Sierra Nevada this past week.”
