Go Niners! Verrrry Slowly!

The San Francisco 49ers are in Seattle to play the Seahawks tonight, and here’s one of the Niner offensive linemen modeling the latest protective body armor for use on the field. “We’re working to get the colors to match the rest of the uniform,” says a spokesman from Nike, who supplies gear to the league. “It’s hard to get that green to blend with the red and gold.”

(This really is a 49er tortoise named Sammy, the pet of QB Colin Kaepernick. It seems Kapernick has had this tortoise since he was 10 years old, and Sammy could fit in his hand. Well, 15 years later, Sammy is now 115 pounds. A little light to protect Kaepernick’s blindside. Thanks to Karen W. for sending.)

“They Think He’s A Righteous Dude”

“He’s very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, – they all adore him.”

“This is our buddy Ferret Bueller. He fancies himself some sort of jungle explorer in my mother’s flower beds — safely within carrying distance of his food dish and water bottle, of course!” -Devori K.

Puppehs. In. Snow.

Here at Cute Overload’s Northern California HQ, we don’t get much of a chance to see Puppehs In Snow unless we put the chains on the tires and trek up to Lake Tahoe. These little guys SNIFF THE CAMERA LENS AND BOUNCE IN THE SNOW so let’s take a look at some RIGHT NOW OKAY THEN?

PS U in or near the Great White North? Learn more about these puppehs- they’re looking for a nice warm home, just sayin.’ Video c/o submitter Allan D.

Heads or Tails?

Both ends of Harriet Tubman, the Maltese/Shih Tzu, are adorable. That’s why Diane F. got two! Diane says of Harriet and her sister Rosa Parks, “They’re 10 weeks old and make my heart explode with love glitter. Love Cute Overload, my favorite for years.”

2013 Bub Action Plan

Re: 2013 BUB Action Plan


During the holiday shopping season, I’ve seen a lot of Boo-themed merch in stores. This dog is everywhere. They’ve really stepped it up. We also can’t ignore Maru, he owns The Pacific Rim- though Mugumogu seems happy to crank out a book once in awhile, and a calendar- we don’t see much of a move towards brand extension. (Maru Spanx?)

The point is, we need to be proactive with Bub in 2013. Here we have without a doubt the cutest cat that has ever lived. T-shirts, DVD’s, social media, online gaming, iPhone apps, we need to come up with a thematic approach to marketing Bub in the new year.

Thoughts? Get back to me by EOB, please.

Spiny Stocking Stuffers

The Perfect Stocking Stuffer! Fits right in!

Deb K. reports from Down Undah: “I saw some really cute photos on the internet of some gorgeous ‘puggles’ at Perth Zoo. I think the Australian native echidnas give hedgehogs a run for their money!”

“The photo where the puggle Babbin has his little tongue out is so so cute I had to share!”

Somethin’ Suspicious ’bout These Two

One’s got some pretty shifty side-eye action going on and the other’s all neener-neener! But they’re so cute there’s nothin’ we can do about it.

Anry T., are you going to let Kikuma and Saya just get away with this blatant display of cuteness?
