President George W. Bush’s First Dog Barney has passed away. Let’s go to The Dubya Facebooks for details:

“Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.”

Cute Overload World Exclusive: Lambs (Wearing Jammies!)

Hot on the heels hooves of Ponies [Wearing Sweatahs] we’ve got LAMBS WEARING JAMMIES.

(Would that make it….”Lammies?”) Meredith T., what’s the story here?

“We have the cutest little lambs at our Orland, CA shelter the Web has ever seen! Two adorable little girls named Elizabeth and Zuri who were born just one week ago today.”

“Now, I know all lambs are cute, but have you ever seen one in pink pajamas? *swoon*”

“And the most miraculous part is that we rescued their mom Dolly (and her mom Polly!) from an extreme state of neglect in December after they were dumped at a high school in Santa Clara, CA.”

“Little did we know that Dolly was pregnant at the time!”

“These babies are truly a miracle and a testament to the strong maternal bonds that sheep possess when they are given the opportunity to stay with their babies (which is sadly a rarity in today’s modern farming world). Would you be interested in sharing their adorable photos on Cute Overload?” [Oh yeah. -Ed]

NBC News.com says there’s a reason for that. (Thanks to Cuteporter Michele R. for the story tip.) In this article, they say “New research finds that seemingly strange aggressive responses to cuteness are actually the norm.” The story goes on to quote study researcher Rebecca Dyer, a graduate student in psychology at Yale. “We think it’s about high positive-affect, an approach orientation and almost a sense of lost control,” said Dyer. “You know, you can’t stand it, you can’t handle it, that kind of thing.”

Um, Duh.
