Dreamflight Lullaby

Now shut your wee eyes, lay down your tired head
And dream fluffy dreams in your pink little bed
Soon you will fly in the sky without fears
The clouds at your feet and the wind in your ears

Over oceans you’ll skim; over mountains you’ll soar
But remember, it’s only a dream, nothing more
And when you awaken, you’ll marvel because it
All seemed so real, but it wasn’t — or was it?

Darin & Brooke say: “Viva is a Papillon-Poodle-Miki mix. She sleeps like this all the time (not really). She’s just tired from looking at the weirdos on Cute Overload all day.” Hey! We resembled that remark!

And Don’t Come Back!

That’s right!

Don’t make us come down there and whip your butt! [shiver]

True-Life Tales of Cuteness!

Ann W. testifies: “My friends and I went camping at The Shades State Park in Indiana. During our four-hour hike through the Sugar Creek Ravine, we came to the river. So we sat and rested. As my friend Jamie sat on a rock, she set down her water-proof case on adjacent rocks.

“Moments later, a tiny McToaderson hopped under her case and made it his own cave! The McToaderson was so grateful for her shade providing, he hopped onto her hand so he could say hello! And yes, we squealed and sat in awe of his bleeneyness. We then put him in a shade spot near the water and continued on our hike. Good-bye, Mr. McToaderson!”



Whooooooo Wants Lunch?

It’s bento long since we’ve had some bento, so let’s look at some too-cute-to-eat creations by “Gamene,” who showcases her work on Flickr and her blog Bento Zen.

How Now, Dow?

Well, if I’m going to ride this roller-coaster market, I’d better do some reading…

Let’s see… Making the Most of Bull Markets, see page 92… Surviving Bear Markets, page 107… Investment Tips for Bad Times, page 210… for End Times, page 666…

Heck, I might as well hide my money under the mattress and hope for the best…

Sell, Dorie H., sell!

Volley Good Show!

And now for something completely amazing: Petey the border collie, who serves up volleys in vast volume, using what must be the world’s most resilient nose.

Is This a New Rule of Cuteness?

Jennifer H. proposes a new rule of cuteness: When you cover your eyes, it’s cute.

And for Exhibit A, she offers: “This is a picture of our cat, Tippy (so named for white tip on the end of her tail). She sleeps like this all the time and it cracks us up, so we caught it on film!”

What say you, peeps? This picture rules — but is it a new rule? Vote below!

Ask The Pet Genius

Jure T. writes us to say: “This is my new puppy (female) called Tara. I’m not really sure what kinda information do you need to make a post on the site but the most important part is that she prefers swimming in her water bowl instead drinking from it.”

Dear Jure: There’s a perfectly rational explanation why she doesn’t want to drink from the bowl. It tastes just like a dog’s been swimming in it.

The Lurking Terror in the Basket

As I descended into the dungeon labyrinth, a foul odor assaulted my senses, the stench of freshly rotting corpses mingled with the dank mold of eons, and a hint of vanilla. I whispered the chant the elders had taught me — tarath n’Ghol nabisco blayvin — and held aloft the Divine Eggplant of Protection.

And there, as foretold, was the ancient basket, wherein lay a horror so wretched that the elders could not speak its name without making a “hlgrrlph” sound. I had hoped to take it asleep, but was too late; the demonic eyes glowed from within. It had seen me.

Tara N. confesses: “I think that deep down in, Guinnie knows she needs baskethab, but she’s not quite willing to admit it yet.”

Honestly, What’s the Big Deal?

I mean, it’s not like we ever see you actually use the yellow pages anymore. You have that beep-boop-beep magic screen on your desk for that now. And you haven’t needed a booster seat for the kids since the youngest entered middle school. So what are you yelling and screaming about? Sheesh!

“My dearly departed phonebook. My dogs Keaton and Grady. I guess they were bored.” says Kristin W. And when animals get bored, Rule 32 gets busy.
