Cue Kathleen C.: “Near the end of our Galapagos Islands trip, we went to a beach where legend has it, a giant colony of Blorp Pillows resides. We added some artistry to the scene & built a big old sand sculpture. Wouldn’t you know it, a sea lion comes floppin’ over and decides to have a nap. On our sculpture.“
“Here is the colony. We R not kidding. All the way up and down the beach, the Blorp Pillows were “just lion around.” Our ears were ringing with Ork, Ork, Ork, but it was so worth it.”
“The main port was awash with sea lions. This one was stealing freshly-caught fish right off the market counter with a “Humph” on its face.”
“These two pups were rolling all up and down the beach, playing with each other. We saw plenty of wildlife but the sea lions were the best.”

Got this note from Cuteporter Edward H., who just posted it on the CO FB page.

Lick, lick, lick, lick, lick
It’s not because I love you
I have OCD
It is midnight
And I see a ghost!
Raccoon! it is a raccoon!
And I hear a ghost!
Cat! it is a cat!
It is midnight
And there is a scary thing
But don’t worry
Go back to sleep
I will protect you

“For (National) Dog Day, here’s one of my personal all-time favorites. I took it with a really wide angle lens and the dog was a few inches from the lens. His name is Charcoal.” – The Furrtographer.
“Just wanted to pass along some pictures of Pixel, our Boston Terrier, enjoying a Greenie snack. He’s learned to use his cone as a serving tray. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as he enjoyed the snack (though, as you can tell from his expression in the pictures, I’m not sure that’s possible!)” -Claudia D.
Voila! Instant Pugs. (Refreshing the page makes ‘em disappear, but who wants to do that?)
Perfect for National Dog Day. From Cuteporter Kevin M. Headline idea totally stolen from Austin.CultureMap.com.
Today happens to be National Dog Day. So to celebrate, we have two copies of the new book “I Could Chew On This: And Other Poems By Dogs” by Francesco Marciuliano, to give away. The book gets inside the heads of our four-legged best friends to express their most intimate thoughts. (Not a dog lover? No problem. Check out “I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats.”

We’ll take entries up ’til 9am PT tomorrow, and choose our two faves. (One entry per person, please. Entries outside the USA- absolutely fine!)
We’ll do an update post tomorrow with the winners. Thanks to Adam S. at Chronicle Books!
