THIS JUST IN: First Dog Barney is Barking at the Pearly Gates

What!? We scooped Scottish Terrier News.com!? Come on! THEY SHOULD BE ON THIS!!!

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.”

“At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.”

Using the power of the Cute Overload WAYBACK MACHINE we’ve looked into the past at what Lil’ Barnicles might have looked like as a puppulence:

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*”

Zuri_DSC_6041_CREDIT_Farm_Sanctuary
“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!”

Zuri_DSC_6157_CREDIT_Farm_Sanctuary
“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]

“Shifu one day kept a Cheerio in his mouth for about a minute before deciding to eat it.”

“I probably squirm every day because of their immense cuteness!” [Imagine that. -Ed]


“If this is submitted you don’t have to use the description I gave at all to describe them, it was just so you get an idea of what was happening. :)” [Oh, we got it. -Ed]
UPDATE! We got another batch JUST IN!

The Science Of Snorgling

You see a cute puppeh or kitt-tayns or even an OMGPONIES!!!!1 and you must SNORGLE it, STAT!

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.

Happy Caturday, Citizen

The cat you see before you is real. It is the happiest cat you have ever seen. You watch the video many times. Soon, it becomes hard to move. You feel a happy melting sensation in your brain. Speech becomes difficult.

Remain calm. Doctors are coming for you. They will take you to a nice room with other happy people. You will share your opinions about soft drinks and political candidates. You will rate movie trailers. The doctors will write down what you say.

When you awaken, you will be at your desk. You will remember nothing. Thank you.

#1 Cutest Video of 2012:
Rambo, the Paradox Paradog

In the webcomic The Oatmeal, cartoonist Matthew Inman sometimes shares the eccentric habits of his Shi Tzu puppy Rambo, such as in the recent comic My dog: the paradox (not safe for work and perhaps lunch). Inman recently shared a video of Rambo in a less eccentric mood from his Facebook page.

There eet is, the Top Ten Cutest Videos of 2012. We’d love to have your video in THIS SAME SPACE for next year, so keep those submissions coming! (Helpful Hint: don’t send in a whompin’ huge video file the size of New Hampsha, or link to Vimeo or sumfin’–upload to YouTube and then email the link. It’s for the best.)
