The Prrr-wer of Suggestion

Ever since he was a kitten, all Stanley ever wanted was to be good and stay out of trouble. Only two obstacles stood in his way: a highly suggestible subconscious, and an roommate with a wicked imagination.

Doggehs ‘N’ Diplomas

480587_10151314441981348_1371447578_nWe’d like you to meet new grads Bridget E. and service dog Hero. She says on Reddit: “Hero knows over forty commands to assist me! He loves to retrieve objects like envelopes, pens, etc. He also turns off lights, opens doors, and he pulls me in my wheelchair up ramps! I couldn’t have gone to college without him!”

CO wrote to Bridget this afternoon and she responded: “I would like to add that I truly appreciate everyone’s good luck wishes! It is amazing to me that so many people have enjoyed the photo! If they would like to help future service dogs like Hero, please check out the Illini Service Dogs site & also on FB and YouTube. I’m the founder of the Illini Service Dogs, providing service dogs for free to people with physical disabilities.”


HuffPo says, “According to posts on Reddit, the photo was taken at the Saturday (5/11) convocation ceremony of the College of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.”


The story was originally submitted from Cuteporter Richard C., who added: “I think I may have found a photo that has made my heart grow three sizes today.”

It means you are not crazy:
You are most clever.

A Dog’s Life

Doesn’t seem like such a bad deal.  You get head scritches with a little metal thing.


You get to go swimming.


You get all googly-eyed and people will crack up. They’ll prolly toss U a treat.


Toys are free.


You get to enjoy the great outdoors.


When you cock your head, people go BAROO? You don’t get what that means.




Sleeping accommodations are always comfortable.


Nice big comfy couches to crash on. Or stand on.


They bring the food and water RIGHT TO YOU!


So close…yet so far.


Nobody gets on your case for excessive drool action.


“I like to snuggle, cuddle, bite skin, chase monstrous objects n’ make people explosively happy.”


And..hey! Green dude! How’d YOU get in here?
