Ladies and Gentlemen, Elton Jowl

I remember when rock was young,
Me and Susie had so much fun
Chasin’ cars and fetchin’ sticks
Had a real good hooman, gave me treats for my tricks

But the biggest kick was outta sight,
Dressing fab’lous for Howl-o-ween night
Ring the doorbell, get a bone
I was all grown up, so I could go out alone, yeah

Trick-or-treating, it’s fun and fleeting
And my tail just can’t keep still
I never knew me a better time,
And I guess I never will

Oh, lawdy mama, those spooky nights
Of goofy ghouls and freaky frights
My one complaint is, I think this wig’s too ti-ii-ii-ii-ght

Poll: Tribble, Or Bun?

Not quite sure what to make of this, People. Is this a Tribble straight off the Starship Enterprise, or the Biggest Bunneh In The World? I know Bunday is still two days off–this couldn’t wait. Poll away.

CO Welcomes The Real Dogbert

1380279924477 Well, actually not the real Dogbert…but close! This puppeh is Snickers, and the hoomin taking up valuable space in the photos happens to be his owner, Dilbert creator Scott Adams. We asked Scott to try and take a “selfie” of himself and Snickers, but…he failed at that. So his assistant took these shots. (Failure? Scott’s got a new book out on that, BTW!)

“I have a treat in my fingers here. That’s why Snickers looks so intense,” Scott says.

PS Nice punkin costume, Snickers!

“I was at Crater Lake, Oregon this summer and this fearless lil’ guy stopped to say hi and mooch some picnic food (which we did not give him!) He was nice enough to pose for some adorable photos in front of the epic scenery. Keep up the great work!” -Bridget.

Biding (biting?) His Time…

I only want a sneeeef. I promise. I give you my word, as a cat.

“Hello! I’m a huge fan of CO! This is Sandy (also known as Sandybear). We received an orchid as a housewarming gift and Sandybear loved it, as evidenced in the photo. Photo credit goes to my boyfriend, Alex J. (He loves taking pictures of his kitty cat!).” -Pisei.

“Peeg ‘tocks, from Dropstone Farms, Orting, Washington. He’s certainly having a good time wallowing in his mud soup! ” -Susan H.
“Taciturn pachyderm at Woodland Zoo, Seattle, WA. Despite much coaxing and cajoling from onlookers, (s)he was having nothing to do with any of us.”  -Addicted follower, Margaret M.
“This lovely okapi lives at the London Zoo. A shy creature that originates from the Congo , was discovered in 1901.” -Helen  O. “PS Your site is my happiest addiction! Thank you for the overload of cute you share!!!”

A ‘Tocktober Halloween Tail

… and that’s when I heard the monster scratch-scratch-scratching outside my open window. I turned, and saw a bony, three-fingered hand reaching to grab me…

... and his eyes felt just like... THESE GRAPES!!!
Susie M. says: “This is my girl Daisy. She is usually much more lady-like by sleeping side saddle. But who can blame a tuckered pup for just collapsing after a hard day of being cute?”
