Sit, Stay, Ride

We ran this story almost a year ago- it was about a documentary called “Sit, Stay, Ride” that was nearing completion. Well, it IS completed, and our NY correspondent Brian Williams has more. (He also has a side job at NBC doing the news:)

(PS- takes a sec for the NBC News clip to load.)

You have no chance of escape
That time would be now

Big Budgie Is Watching You

“You were not at the Two Minutes’ Whap this afternoon,” said the voice on the telescreen. “Are you unwell?” Winston felt a knot of dread form in his stomach. To lie to Big Budgie, leader of the Party, was the most doubleplus-not-anti-opposite-of-good thing he could do, yet the suspicion that the looming face was nothing but a birdbrain consumed him. He had to think fast. He knew he wasn’t sick. He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick.

“I was out, um, buying you some nice millet seed, sir?”

“Magnus our kitten watching a budgie on TV that’s so big it seems to be watching him,” says senderplusinner Sheenagh P.

Riley And Pancho

These two guys are clearly BFFs. Riley The Pug was all established at home, and then outta nowhere comes the little ResQte Maniac, Pancho. Quoting the video, “Pancho the little kitten was found abandoned by his mother with his eyes closed and alone. We took him in and fed him kitten formula and nursed him to the healthy kitten he is. This little fearless kitten became attached to our dogs but especially to Riley our pug and he loves bothering him all day long. Riley would cry when we took the kitten away and they are inseparable.”

That’s JUST the way we like it, uh-huh uh-huh.

(Mashable.)

Majestic

Watch as a paddle boarder gets THIS close to flat-out the largest and most graceful animal in the world.

(Boing! Boing!!!!!!)

A Tail Of Two Friends

One’s big and has a long, floppy tail. The other is small and WANTS the long, floppy tail. That sums it up nicely.

(Mashable. Also note- not much sound in this one, no need for Speakers Up.)

Is It “Wye-Fye,” Or “Wiffy?”

IMG_3242You know, the magical techno thing that allows your laptop to go where you go, and still be connected to The InterTubes. Some say WYE-FYE, others say WIFFY or even WIFEY. Well, this Scottish Fold Kitteh is NAMED “Wifi,” and she doesn’t care HOW you say it. Just as long as you don’t forget to scritch her head.

ResQte Of The Week II: Cora

unnamedLook at that little Mini-Chubster down there! Good GRIEF! “This is my ResQte Teddy-Bear Hamster Cora, which I adopted last year from Wee Companions in San Diego. She only has three legs but gets around just fine. She’s been busy practicing her yoga lately. Namaste!” -Annie.

(PS Cora is sister to Cashew, who was also adopted from Wee Companions earlier last year.)
