New Kids On The Block!

These New Kids have mos’ def’ got the right stuff, and they’re hanging tough, step by step!

African Pygmy Goat kids Chloe and Clark were born one month ago to the day, at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore.

Their proud parents are Lex and Lois. I sense a Superman theme here- but Lois would NEVER be with Lex Luthor.

And..let’s not forget Rule Of Cuteness #45: Any animal with the word “pygmy” in it is cute.

ResQte Of The Week III: Gladys AKA Sponzo

039You might recall Benny from yesterday, c/o. Marla C. I asked Marla if Benny was hers, and she said no, she found that picture on Imgur..which is certainly fine.


She also sent us in a photo of a puppeh that IS hers. “If you want to see MY doggeh, please see the attached. Her name is Gladys (AKA, Gladbags, Princess Floofy Feet, and Sponzo, which stands for Spaz + Gonzo.) She is a rescue mutt that we adopted two years ago.”

Wicked Beans -N- Side-Eye Combo theyah, Gladys.

A Ripping Good Yarn

When we last met Kwanza and puppy pal Honey, they had become best friends at Darling Downs Zoo in Pilton, Queensland. Looks like they’ve started a project together: building the world’s largest ball of yarn. How’s it going, kids?



Thanks to Adam of CoxCreatura.

Meanwhile, at Shaolin Elementary School…

So, my apprentice… you think you are ready because you have passed the challenge of “five high.” But that is not the final test of your speed and cunning. Your training shall not be complete until you master… “five low.”

ResQte Della Settimana II

Just got this one in from Jillian L. in New Zealand (See–we’re global) -a fisherman rescued a deer! “I came across it on The Dodo. You get the scenic Italian coastline, ResQte Li’l Deer with Prosh Crossed Hooflets, and by my calculations this one has FOUR Rules of Cuteness; 2, 23, 50 and 51. I love Cute Overload! I can find pics of anerable and prosh anipals in lots of places, but only C.O. Cuteologists have the talk to go with the walkies.”

[*Note: Here’s more on the story– see if you can get Chrome to translate if you can’t read Italian. No luck here. -Ed.]

Now, stand by for some rapid-fire Italian!
