Now for the Fishing News

Local angler Len Floopnagle proudly displays the rare Polka-dotted Mudspanker he caught last weekend. Explaining how he landed the prize catch, Floopnagle said “Hrffth mrrpth ith rrrglth arrgth!”

Diana R. writes: “Here is my Rocket, he is a year old and the cutest bebee eveh! This was taken on vacation along Lake Superior, in Marquette MI.”

Shhhhh, I Theenk I’m Being Followed

My impending tail of doom sense is tingling! It’s right behind me isn’t it?

“This is Pickles. She’s a PomaPoo. She’s cute and she owns me and my husband. Her only pet peeve is her own tail, which curls up her back. A lot of her time is spent trying to punish the tail.” -Alice R.

Orkin’ In The Galapagos (Updated!)

Cue Kathleen C.: “Near the end of our Galapagos Islands trip, we went to a beach where legend has it, a giant colony of Blorp Pillows resides. We added some artistry to the scene & built a big old sand sculpture. Wouldn’t you know it, a sea lion comes floppin’ over and decides to have a nap. On our sculpture.


“Here is the colony. We R not kidding. All the way up and down the beach, the Blorp Pillows were “just lion around.” Our ears were ringing with Ork, Ork, Ork, but it was so worth it.”


“The main port was awash with sea lions. This one was stealing freshly-caught fish right off the market counter with a “Humph” on its face.”


“These two pups were rolling all up and down the beach, playing with each other. We saw plenty of wildlife but the sea lions were the best.”

A Rothschild’s Giraffe calf standing 6′ tall was born on Aug. 20 at Paignton Zoo in England: The tallest baby in the world! No confirmation yet whether it’s a girl or a boy. AND, guess who doesn’t have a NAME yet?! What do you think? Mama’s name is Janica and Dad’s name is Yoda …unnhh wasn’t Yoda the short dude …I’m thinking no way he’s the da – oh well!!!


Staring at you, dear readers, daring you to turn away…

THIS JUST IN: RIP 2 Wasabi-Chan

Got this note from Cuteporter Edward H., who just posted it on the CO FB page.

“It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Wasabi-chan at 6:30pm Tokyo time today, the cute kitten in a mushroom costume who was featured here.”

Sigh, been a tough summer for our friends, from Schoep to Jay V. to Chase The Baseball Doggeh, and now Wasabi-chan.

When you love the furballs like we all makes their passing that much harder, doesn’t it?
