Here’s To The Heroes

As the year begins to wind down, C.O. salutes the heroes among us who go the extra mile to save, protect, and care for the little furry friends in need.


‘Twas The Toesday Before Christmas…

And all thru the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even Dudley Muggle.
(Sorry, can’t make the name rhyme.)

“Here’s the cuddliest bedbug this side of the Mississippi (the eastern side). Dudley Muggle put his prosh paws front and center this morning. I was glad to catch him mid-yawn. Photo by ME, Stina!”

BUB The Mighty Hunter!

If you think BUB gets her dinner served to her on a platter every night–think again! Watch this video as BUB tracks down dinner in the wild! Good JOB, BUB!

“Hey Honey? Did You Get The Pathfinder Cleaned?”

“Sent it out to be detailed- they’re doing it right now. They come highly recommended, especially in getting the salt off the paint.”

You Still Have Time!

Or- consider ’em New Year’s presents, right? They make great gifts- but don’t take our word for it- these comments are from Amazon buyers! (Just like you.)

“This is exactly what we were looking for, and it’s perfect.”

“Where are these adorable animal pictures found!? We look forward to the calendar every year.”

“I especially love the picture in December of a guinea pig wearing a sweater I knitted!”

Click either of the small calendar images to go straight to Amazon- hurry, operators are standing by!

Yule Love This Video II

For awhile it seemed like BUB was the only critter with a Yule Log video. Now everyone’s comin’ out with one- not that there’s ANYthing wrong with that! These three little guys are having tons of fun- and they’d like to keep having YOUR home. Quoting the video text: “Spread some Christmas cheer. To help out kittens like these, whether you’re looking to volunteer, donate or adopt, visit an animal shelter near you.”

TOTES agree.

Oh, and we can’t forget Doug The Pug, who is as snug as a bug in a rug.

And Baxter and Dixie just…well, maybe next year. Or not.

Finally, one more. Just because.

SOMEONE Is Getting A Lump Of Coal…

…in their stocking. Most likely, the hoomin who subjected Cocoa to this gross indignity. “I’ve attached a photo of my pet rabbit Cocoa in her holiday finery. She is a Rescue Bunny who my husband and I adopted last year. She has a very sweet personality, and a great tolerance for her parents who laughed for quite a while before being able to take this photo,” says Michelle V.

“The Cute Overload Continues”

A Bebeh Sea Otter came online yesterday morning at the Monterey Bay Aquarium!

The MBA Tumblr blog (where the headline and these pix originated) says ” As of this writing though, she’s still grooming her pup and enjoying the comfort of our Great Tide Pool. The Cute Overload continues.”

Their words, not ours. But we agree!

Thanks to Mika at the MBA, plus readers Heather G., Emily S., and JoAnne S.

Need Some Entertainment For The Office Party?

Just call MAYMO’S MUSICAL MUTTS DJ Service and they’ll send out one of their top jocks to spin your party right into the Christmas Spirit!

(*Note: Was going to put a fake 1-800 # on here but then thought, “what if someone answers?” So I dialed it and yep, someone’s got a variation on 1-800-MAYMO, so that’s out. -B.)

RoC #40 Applies To Maru, Too

Remember: Sleeping in a sunbeam is cute. Getting brushed by your hoomin is just a bonus. But that’s the way M & M (Mugumogu & Maru) roll.
