Savour Every Moment

A short film by Keith Hopkin.

“I produced this via an artistic grant for Canadian-based pet food company Petcurean. It premieres today, April 27, during the TriBeca Film Festival in NYC. It features dogs and cats captured in super slow motion in the snow in the northeast, to the beach and pools of southern California. I even collaborated with ‘Underwater Dogs‘ photographer Seth Casteel for a portion of it.”

“I found this cute fella barking up the wrong tree at the dog park. I carefully pointed him towards a more appropriate tree and provided a small snackage.” -Renée P.

It’s… Disney Smile!

There it is, folks: the twinkle in the eye, the full lower lip with just a hint of tongue… The look that says “Sure, I may have only three fingers on each hand, but am I going to let that bring me down? Golly gee willikers, no!”

Odor to a Skunk

Skunkalette, no more than a budding flower
Sweet and dewey, too sleepy to bloom
Blissfully unaware of its ultimate power
Sparing us from skunkalette perfume
Allowing for a cuddle and a sniff.
Tie-tie skunkalettes need forty-winks
And the world’s noses breathe happy
No worries about getting a whiff
Of skunkalette’s stinky-stinks
When a skunkalette takes a little nappy.


Susan R. found this on PUTube and says, “Wait for :55 for ultimate leg wiggling action. I love how he immediately falls asleep at the end!”

Teddy Bear Picnic

From the “food too cute to eat” section of our recipe book come these egg and rice teddy bears. I mean, if you were sleeping, would you want to get poked by a fork?

“He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease,

That daring young ham on the flying trapeze!”
