Let’s play Capybara-Wombat-Squirrel-monk

Sometimes photos of animals come into CO that are surely cute but a little – shall we say – less obvious to decipher.

Now, we know what this little guy is, but do you?

Guessing the correct animal gets you bragging rights only. “Little Baby Boy” (actual name) is staying with Danny W.

Uh, Could I Have My Pen Back?

Listen, sorry to bother you while you’re eating, but I was filling out your feeding chart just now, and my pen seems to have fallen into your mixed greens.

“… nine hundred and ninety eight, nine hundred and ninety nine, one thousand!”

“OK, did all you mice find a hiding place? Good, now stay there and let me sleep.”

We’d let a cutie like Isabella find us every time, Jessica C.

It’s Winter in July!

As we swelter and simmer in triple-digit despair, let’s cool off with this video of a pup engaged in a spirited game of Fetch the Sled.
