Schoep’s Hoomin Adopts A Bear

Remember the story of Schoep & Unger? This photo struck a chord around the world.

And now, after Schoep’s passing, his hoomin John Unger has decided to adopt a ResQte Puppeh. According to the Schoep & Unger FB, Bear is a 1 year old, 70 lb. Akita/Shep/Lab mix. Well, he’s 70 pounds today. That’s gonna change.

Can I Get A Nudibranch Pepperoni….To Go?

The Featured Creature likes weird animals- and coincidentally enough, that’s where we spotted this critter– who fits the bill. Almost two years ago (!) we were introduced to Mr. Nudibranch. This year, we have a..Dominos Nudibranch? Pizza Hut Nudibranch? What? Is? That? Answer: a “Pizza Crust Sea Slug.” (Same thing as a Nudi, says FC.) Or, (say like Cliff Clavin:) a “Pleurobranchus Areolatus.”

[*Note- Of COURSE there’s a “Sea Slug Forum.” -Ed.]

Ohayō!

According to RN24, people seem to think that Maya The Cat is imitating her hoomin in saying “Ohayō,” which is the “three-syllable Japanese greeting for good morning.”

Who are we to disagree?


Seen by Andrew Y…more Maya vids here.

Flashback Friday: Backyard Banjo Buddies

d1db0ee8b1fc957b53ffd516978bf82fFrom Pinterest: no other historical deets available. A Smedley spot.

Welcome to Flashback Friday! Coming up shortly: a Talking Cat from The Big J (honest,) a South Korean Sheep Café (honest) and…the return of Nudibranchs!

It’s COLD! Can SOMEone Tuck Me In?

[You know, one day I’ll be able to do this MYSELF. Little help there, Rache?]


“It’s cold and snowy here in Virginia, which means Rupert the Boston Terrier needs some serious warmth. He loves napping under blankets but unfortunately has not yet mastered the art of covering himself up. When he needs help, he makes sure to let me know. Here he is, getting an assist from me.” -Rachael H.

And that wraps up another day here at C.O.- just wait ’til tomorrow. It’s Flashback Friday! Plus a Talking Cat from The Big J (honest,) a South Korean Sheep Café (honest) and…the return of Nudibranchs!

OK Buddy, Let’s Go For A Walk

[But don’t think I’m gonna do this for free ALL the time. Next time, it’ll cost you a couple of dog biscuits. Clear?]


(Squidster.)

Got Something On Your Mind?

SOMEone has a lot to say, and isn’t a bit shy about saying it, either.

I am sending a picture of another one of our cows who can’t stop partying. His name is Moose and wants more birthday party! I also sent a picture of our pygmy goat* Mary enjoying the sunshine we are having here in OR.” -Shelly C.

Look! Up In The Sky! It’s A Bird! It’s…

Clipboard01…a plane. No, it can’t be a bird or plane. How dopey. Why’d they say that on SUPERMAN, anyway? That’s OBVIOUSLY SuperCat! (As seen on The Featured Creature Twitter.)
