Mr_Charlie_Farnsbarns“This is Mr. Charlie Farnsbarns, one of our many wild backyard residents. My Irish mother-in-law discovered and named him during a recent visit to see us in Simi Valley, CA. We took pictures of him for her to take back over the pond as a souvenir of her trip. Is there a Cuteness Rule for great big teethy smiles? [*Note: Nope. -Ed.] I think he’s smiling because my mother-in-law kept feeding him toast and pastry for breakfast!” -Erin H. (Pic by William G.)

How Was Your First Day Of Hamstergarten Today?

It looks like school is gonna be a LOT of fun this year!


Puppehs. Pigs. Paradise. Home Depot.

Almost exactly two years ago, we showed you Puppehs ‘N’ Pigs in the Bahamas…absolutely the place where you wanna go to get away from it all. (Think Beach Boys- “Kokomo.”)

Well, the guys (Tig & Sparky Bobo) are back. Not nearly as glamorous a location, nope. No palm trees, no drinks with the little umbrellas, no sand, no cool tropical breezes. Just…concrete. Watch where yer steerin’ there, Sparky….and you guys buckle up. (No animals were harmed in this shopping trip.)

ResQte Of The Week: Help Bring Kaly To Canada She’s Arrived!

IMG_8012Remember the story of Kaly, the little puppeh in India who was in the process of trying to get to her new hoomin in Canada? (See here and also here.) Well…SHE MADE IT! Let’s let Jade L. tell us how it all wrapped up….

“Kaly just made it home safely to Canada thanks to you Cute Overload!!!! She’s so happy here!!! She was reunited with her friend Taj who lived with her in the kennel in India and they are best friends-husband and wife. I can’t thank you enough! Kaly’s chance of survival in India was very low given that she is very small, female, and 80% blind! She is my little unicorn I will love her forever. We have saved her life!!!

“Two weeks ago Dr. Marylin messaged me and told me that the embargo had finally been lifted! We made arrangements and got Kaly a crate; she boarded a plane in Goa 5 days ago. She made one stop in Doha for 12 hours and landed in Montreal 36 hours later.”

“I took two of my very best girlfriends and we drove 6 hours to Montreal to pick her up. When I took her passport and papers to customs, the officer said ‘I’m not going to charge you anything because you’re doing a good deed. She is a lucky dog’!”

“When I first saw her she was sleepy but super excited. She loves the car and spent the whole drive home sleeping on our laps. Now she’s happy in my home. She sleeps in her bed with her stuffed unicorn and she plays at the park with her friend Taj from India and she’s a happy pup!”


“Take ME Out To The Ballgame? Why?

542a332d3d385d402aba9a104f3d3a2a[Summer Vacay is OVER? But…(sputtering)..but…I was JUST HERE! OK, it June. I cannot HANDLE another year of Miz Higgenbottom. And why are all my teachers always named like that? Do they get those names at Teacher School? Agnes Pimplethorn Higgenbottom, I swear. Good grief, I can’t deal with this. How many sick days have I accrued so far? This is, what, second bell?]
