Relaxed to the Max

Sender-inner Liam G’s Burmese, Max, lives Rule 40 with a vengeance.  To Max, a sunbeam isn’t merely a random force of Nature to be exploited; nay, it is like unto a god to be worshiped with the exposure of one’s vulnerable belleh region.

Spotlight on RULE 40: Sleeping in sunbeams is megacute!

I'm practicing to be a rug.

This Just In: Photographers Adopt Tiger

After a tiger cub in a German zoo was rejected by its parents, it was adopted by a family of annoying photographers from the Associated Press, who assigned Bessie, their pet Dachshund, to interview it. Bessie’s six-part series with the tiger cub will air on European TV in June, with American syndication and a book tour to follow.

This Just In: Moose on the Loose

What a rotten way to start your life: Separated from your mom, chased by wild dogs, a state trooper thinks you’d be better off dead, and worst of all, you gotta move to Wisconsin.  But thanks to some kind Alaskans, it’ll be a happy ending all the same for this moose calf. Full story and more pics at the Los Angeles Times.

So, Who’s Using the Wall, Again?

Remember our little workout cutie from the other day, and how some of you were all like “Hah!  The dog’s leaning against the wall!”  Well, check it, peeps: Wall-free aerobic awesomeness, and yes, more Beatles music.

Happy Fursday!

“This lovely animal on the photos show the Newfoundland Leilah, the lady dog of my parents,” writes sender-inner Nahal A.  “She got sleepy in the garden, but luckily she had her Molly with her…”  Probably got tired from hauling all that fur!
