“Hello CO! Looooooove your website. I hope you feature my 8-month-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Seaborne Prince Rupert of the Rhine a.k.a. “Rupert.” Please note the Muzzlepowsche with the Cindy Crawford-style beauty mark and the long silky ears. He is a total love-sponge and my husband and I adore him.” Andrea in Houston.

Flashback Friday: Slurp!

Munchkin’s Big Apple Adventure

Not Munchkin’s first visit to C.O.- but this does look like her first ever trip to NYC, so start spreadin’ the news! Munchkin’s here to stay!

Lick. Sniff? Butt Wiggle! Bounce. Stumble. Repeat.

Look at Hattie The Westie, living large in the U.K. with her brother and sister. Again, we don’t know who is who- they should have little football jerseys, right? But they DO (most likely) have that Fresh Puppeh Smell.

(Imagines a quick Hattie Snorgle:) Ahhhhhhh.



ULTIMATE ResQte Of The Week IV

From Down Undah last time around, up to the Great White North. Ya won’t believe it. A mom and her six Bebeh Geese were on the roof of the Calgary Outdoor Centre, and wanted to get down. Well, that’s a problem if you don’t FLY yet. So some students quickly set up some mats for them to land on!

Super C.O. Thanks to Chloe L.!

THIS JUST IN: C.O. Cat Café World Tour: Sydney

Diving Down Undah for another stop on the C.O. Cat Café World Tour- this time, a temporary “Pop-Up” version in Sydney, Australia.

Maggie’s Rescue has set up a pop-up Kitten Café in the Paddington neighborhood. It opened Thursday in Sydney (it’s now Friday there) and is open until Sunday. (Unfortunately, the Café FB says admission is already sold out..they say they’re planning a second event.)

They hope to open a permanent version this summer. Photos from Zimbio and FB, with thanks to Tony J.

Did U Bike To Work Today?

Some sites say it’s today, other sites say it’s tomorrow! Hmmm, looks like it varies from city to city. Whatever, Porkey decided to roll ’em today- but no helmet?

“This is Porkey, she’s an African Pygmy Chameleon. She’s in a bike gang with me (her mom.) Porkey is in such good shape and likes to eat fruit flies.” -Lindsay E.

ResQte Of The Week III: Cocker Spaniels!

Cocker-Spaniel-Puppies-027You might remember last month, an Australian photographer by the name of Patrick Jones sent us some outstanding shots from RSPCA New South Wales. Now he’s back with another set– and this time, it’s ALL Cocker Spaniels! Winston, Dexter, Lincoln, Fanta, Floss, Finni and Fena.

No, we don’t know who is who. Not that it matters- they’re all ADORBS.

The Fast ‘n’ The Furry-ous 12, Comin’ AT Ya

6a010535647bf3970b01b7c789456e970b-800wiOK, so maybe he doesn’t exactly have fur. More like…armor plating. But he is definitely on the move, showing some impressive ground clearance. (And imaginary little puffs o’ smoke from the rear hoofsters.) And how about those Ear Funnels? GAAAA. (From ZooBorns.)

OH AND BTW: RoC #7 and #1.
