And Now, a Dog Playing with Himself

This clever dog has figured out how to have endless fun on its own with a tennis ball and a set of stairs. Makes you wonder how well he’d get on with a Slinky.

Meanwhile, at the Pugvale Elementary Annual Second Grade Fall Pageant…

“But I don’t wanna go onstage, Mrs. Whickerbacker! All the other kids are gonna laugh at me, and my leaf costume won’t stay in place, and I can’t remember my line!


Steve V. says: “This is our pug Zelda. She is little and cute. The other day we put a leaf on her back. It was almost bigger than her!”

This is the Lemur Leaf Frog, this is the cutest frog on the planet, probably just here visiting from the cute hall of fame. It lives in the rainforest, it can fit on the tip of your finger, it can change colors and, most of all, it can do that amazing mime illusion of an invisible wall. Check it out.

(silently presses sticky hands one at a time against imaginary flat surface, looks surprised)


Actually, as Brian G. knows, the Lemur Leaf Frog is a critically endangered frog of Central & So. American rainforests.

Yes, PENGUIN SWEATERS

The recent New Zealand oil spill left many penguins in need of warmth and protection. Sweaters were used to prevent the birds from preening their feathers and ingesting the toxic oil. So far, enough sweaters have been knit to cover the little guys, so you can put your knitting needles away for now.


WAIT A MIN!!!


How did this kitten get in here!?!

Sorry Mama, only so much room in the basket

According to Cuteporter Melinda M., this villager carried kittens on a basket towards dry land as he waded through floodwaters last month in Cuttack city, India. Around 700,000 people have been affected by the floods.
