Puppy Tales – Marple

Once upon a time there was a very nice puppy named Marple.

As you can see, Marple was attractive, photogenic and had a great disposition. The problem was that Marple had a metal growth on her head.


There were times that Marple wished the metal thingy wasn’t there because it made it very difficult to go underneath couches, beds, doors and the like. Those are some of the very best places on earth to a puppy. Marple never complained, though. She was a very good dog and did her best to enjoy every minute of her life.


Perhaps it was Marple’s good nature, in spite of her adversity, that caught the attention of The Cute Overload Fairy. The Cute Overload Fairy snuck up behind Marple and waved her cute and sparkly wand and just like that, the metal thingy was gone!


Marple looked around. How did this happen? She didn’t know, but being a polite pup, Marple pointed her snout in the air and said, “Thank you very much!” She felt a faint *boop* on her nose and a quiet, “You’re welcome.”

Marple was so excited, she immediately ran around testing all of the things she could get under.


Marple, Paul, Charlotte and Nat S. lived happily ever after. The End.

The C.O. Guide to Home Renovation

When updating your wallpaper, it’s very important to remove old wallpaper completely. The best method, surprisingly, is a solution of hot water and fabric softener. The worst method, not surprisingly, is to leave your dog home for the weekend with Original Works for Theremin playing on an endless loop.

An Animated Quarter Century

According to Kotaku, May 21 was the 25th birthday of the animated GIF, those grainy silent loops that turn your computer into a 100-year-old penny arcade. And what better way to celebrate than with some loopy animal hijinks?

Horse sense, of course, of course.

You can lead a gift horse of a different color to change its spots midstream but you can’t make him shut the barn door.

You can hold your horses but you can’t make ‘em drink, jurvetson.

Please, Sir, I Want More.

Even though there is still a bit left on my plate. Once I eat that bit, my plate will be empty and that makes me woeful.


Wouldn’t want this little guys to get thin all over and twist in the breeze, would we, Sophia P.?

Sometimes You’re The Cheerleader, And Sometimes You’re The Pom-Pom

Today, I am the pom-pom. I feel tossed, shaken and generally out of sorts.


Hope you cheer up soon, Eliot.

Oceans 1

It was the biggest heist they’d ever pulled. It required stealth, ingenuity and teamwork. In the end their thirst for crime (and water) was quenched. Well, at least for one of them.
