Stinkers The Porcu-Puppeh

Snickers Stinkers the Porkypine acts like a puppeh! “I didn’t think anyone could be as cute as Teddy Bear, but i was wrong! Heck, this could even be Teddy Bear but then all porcupines look alike to me (Sorry TB)!!” -Annie M.

Need Your Tree Hauled Away?

If your tree is STILL sitting by the curb and you need it taken away, Zuri -N- Safina Christmas Tree Removal can DO! Just give them a call and they’ll be over right away. They might stay for awhile, though.

Let’s Check In At The C.O. Weather Center (Updated!)

We asked y’all to send in a photo of your little critter dealing with the snowy frigid weather. Let’s take a look! (Several from Illinois, BTW.)

First up is Meridith The Corgi, who we first saw getting snow-stuck here. Meri has been bizzy. (Bounding through snow must be hard when you’re so stubby!)

And now to our submitters!

“This is Barkley, enjoying his first snow. He is originally from California but is doing quite well in Montana (with the help of some fashionable cold-weather gear.) -Jamie I.

Logan is a sweetheart that is waiting for his furr-ever home at Save-A-Pet in Grayslake, IL. where the temp right now is a chilling -12 degrees (real feel -42 degrees.) I was out in the snow with him yesterday for some playtime and photos.” -Sandra P. [More photos here. -Ed]

“This is Bisco, our Pembroke Corgi named. We live in Indiana and are experiencing the “Polar Vortex.” We don’t typically put Bisco in clothes, but felt we had to for his safety in this windchill of -30 degrees. Video by Ryan K. Photo by me, Alyssa L.”

“Here’s The Notorious FIG again…she’s a little chilly in the -8 temps. Wind chill here in St. Louis is -33!” -Greer B.

“This is how my sister protects her sweetheart rotty, Bandit, from the -17 wind chills this morning in Deerfield, IL. (Hey, it’s warming up in the Chicago area.) Bandit sports socks to the utmost Cute Degree!” -Jeanne R.

“This is a photo of my two dogs Nina (L) and Tito, before our morning walk in the NYC Polar Vortex. Tito spent 3/4 of the walk inside my coat, despite his hoodie sweatshirt, 3-legged fleece jammies, camo coat, pompom hat, and booties. Nina didn’t want to come inside and she only had on a hoodie & a coat.” -Katherine N.

“I am an avid fan of your site and would love to submit this video of Kima, my Corgi romping in snow that was way too deep for her little body! She loves the snow and we have a hard time telling her she can’t stay out and play in when the temperatures were so far below zero here in the Chicago area. BTW, it gets PERFECT around 0:37.” -Kerri M.

Not Sure Why We’re In Here, Duck

[Could be cause we're in trouble. Or it could be cause we're dirty. Guess we're about to find out.]
