Max relaxes better than anyone else. Note the pokey Stubbular Pawz and the Left and Right Ears that go ZOINK in each direction, like they’re pullin’ in DirecTV or sumfin’. #Givemeabreakwillyouplease.

Welcome. You finally leveled up. The temple guards were defeated, the two torn halves of the map fit, the right crystals exploded, you collected coins, avoided traps and obliterated my armies.

Geoffrey tells us his story of fostering Jake, for a friend with over 30 hedgies in her rescue care and who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Jake, a 6 year old African Pygmy Hedgehog, was not happy to be held by a stranger! But Geoffrey says after about 15 minutes Jake’s, “cute, little wet nose peeked out between the prickly quills. It was such a Cute Overload moment!” Very happily, Jake is back with his human mom now who has since beaten the cancer! Yay!

Ralph, that’s what I meant… and I’m also seeing a leg, Ralph, wearing tan khakis or chinos… You’re very familiar with this leg, Ralph…
From the shrouded mists of the beyond (or maybe California), Carina M. writes: “This is our foster dog, Molly. She loves all people, but desires to slay all other animals, and she barks when she’s alone. Otherwise, the perfect pet, really! She has a very cute nosicle, which sometimes is covered in dirt from her adventures in the yard.”
According to The Telegraph, when a tiger mom in a Russian zoo rejected her three cubs, a white Swiss Shepherd dog named Tallim stepped in to nurse them. Now the screechy cubs have their bellies full — and are giving their new mom quite an ear full.
