“Here is my silly kitten Greg Brady [Here's a story, about a cat named Brady. -Ed] occupying my laptop on my work at home day. He is always very helpful, as you can see! He’s a one-year-old ball of crazy.” Thanks to Morgen D.

“This is Jay the Papillon getting some assistance from his man-slave to surf the Web for cute toy poodles. He’d do it himself except for…the lack of thumbs. His tongue drags on the keyboard and makes it more frustrating to type things in Google search.” [Well, yeah, problem. -Ed] -Christina V.

“Dear Masters of the Cute, [Nice Suck-Up Touch! -Ed] I know I’m late for the assignment and all, but my galga* Alba helping me finish my master thesis is too cute not to be shared. Hope you enjoy the nosicle on the ‘pooter!” -Janne V.

*JANNE UPDATE!: “Lecturing modus on: A galga is a female galgo which is a spanish greyhound, they are the ancestors of all other breeds of sighthounds. Alba was rescued, as galgos are used for hunting in Spain and are very often mistreated, abandoned and killed, especially at the end of the hunting season. They are the most laid back and lovely pets you could imagine!” [Quiz on this later -Ed]

Selvi P.: “This is Mavi, short for Maverick. We kitten-sat for his owners while they were on vacation and needless to say, we were heartbroken when they came back.”

Also from Mariana A., “This is Amy. When she came to us a year ago she was malnourished and a lot smaller for her age. Since she was so cold all the time, her favorite spot was on top of our overheating computer. Needless to say, she grew very quickly and is doing much better now!”

“Our dogs are being greedy keyboard hogs. They love to sit on our laps while we use our computers, but sometimes they use the keyboard as a a pillow. The white one is Potato and the black/white one is Whistler.” Thanks to Megan for this one!

Schoep Update, People!

Sounds like The Schoep-Meister is doing well! Let’s go to John & Schoep’s FB page, to see what’s what. Quoting John Unger, his hoomin:

“Fantastic day today. Five-six inches of new snow, 17 deg.f. and Schoep is on fire. Very quick and happy, he did not want to come in! Moderation is key with him, he cannot over do it. Rest and we will go out again tonight. Hope your day is just as good – John”

Dogloo

Here’s a cool idea: Flickr user PhotKing, in England, decided to build his dog Rosemary an igloo, hiding treats inside to encourage her to explore.

As an added bonus, the igloo is powered by a genuine Mr. Fusion™ home reactor!

Déjà Vu All Over Again

This fellow looks familiar. Um…lessee…ah! In last week’s CO Calendar shot! Go for it, Katie M.: “Hey! Bones is the picture of the day today! I never look ahead at the pictures so I was very surprised. Here is a pic of Bones sitting proudly next to his calendar page. If you notice that the plastic holder is the wrong color, my new one broke so I glued the new pages to the old one.”
