People, will you please get a load of Benny, the extremely wide-eyed Pom, enjoying his bath, set to music from—what is it, Mario Kart?! :D :D :D

Sender-Inner Melissa M. really outdid herself with this submishe. Says Melissa: “This bunn-nu-copia could easily be confused for “Tonguesgiving” however, do not mistake the carrot for a tongue. This lionhead is prepared to feast.”

THIS JUST IN: Tiny Qualio Iglesias

“Did you have any idea bebeh quails were so cute? I didn’t either,” says Sender-Inner Hilary K.


We had no idea either, Hilary. Thank you for the head’s up.

People are raving about the 2013 Cute Overload Calendars

Just look at these comments from Amazon.com.

“I love this calendar and can’t wait until Jan 1, 2013 to start my daily dose of CUTE!! Great way to start every day with a smile :-)”
-Julie

Thanks, Julie.

“I bought this product for my girlfriend since she visits the website daily. She was so happy when she received this. Very cute calendar and highly recommended for anyone who wants to put a smile on their lady’s face :)”
-R. Cookerly

Hear that? Put a smile on your lady’s face.

Arrived very quickly. The calender is absolutely adorable, and is everything I have come to expect from Cute Overload. These make great gifts!
-Johara

Great…gifts.

I cannot wait until this calendar is in use! It is currently sitting on my desk in its little cover box, with the helmet hammy staring at me with its beady eyes day after day, taunting me to open it up! Best buy for the new year!
-Nancy C

Best. Buy. For the New. Year.

This is my 3rd Cute Overload calendar and I love it so much I would have paid full price!!! The pics are adorable and I can use the back of each page as scratch paper.
-City Girl

How in the world did you get a discount City Girl!?

I always got a cat page a day calendar. But I got lots of laughs the year my coworker found this calendar. So I look forward to 2013 being full of chuckles.
-Dee

‘Full of chuckles’ was our goal.

I have been a fan of Cute Overload for the past two or three years. I look forward to getting my Cute Overload “fix” each day. It never fails to make me smile, chuckle, laugh out loud, sigh, and/or appreciate God’s creatures. Having the upcoming year’s calendar of Cute Overload will just be an added bonus of seeing pictures of the “stars” of Cute Overload without going on-line.
^ _ ^ -Moom

Get your fix. In print form!

This is my first year actually being able to buy the calendar and I am so happy I did! It is so worth it to have happy thoughts everyday :)
-Lethargic Lass

Happy, happy thoughts.
