Guys:

During the holiday shopping season, I’ve seen a lot of Boo-themed merch in stores. This dog is everywhere. They’ve really stepped it up. We also can’t ignore Maru, he owns The Pacific Rim- though Mugumogu seems happy to crank out a book once in awhile, and a calendar- we don’t see much of a move towards brand extension. (Maru Spanx?)

The point is, we need to be proactive with Bub in 2013. Here we have without a doubt the cutest cat that has ever lived. T-shirts, DVD’s, social media, online gaming, iPhone apps, we need to come up with a thematic approach to marketing Bub in the new year.

Thoughts? Get back to me by EOB, please.

Deb K. reports from Down Undah: “I saw some really cute photos on the internet of some gorgeous ‘puggles’ at Perth Zoo. I think the Australian native echidnas give hedgehogs a run for their money!”

“The photo where the puggle Babbin has his little tongue out is so so cute I had to share!”

Somethin’ Suspicious ’bout These Two

One’s got some pretty shifty side-eye action going on and the other’s all neener-neener! But they’re so cute there’s nothin’ we can do about it.

Um, Are You Peeps Busy?

Because, if you’re not, we have 10 puppehs who NEED 10 NAMES! Mama is a little bit overwhelmed. We must hasten to her assistance!

Mysteries of the Unexplained!

Slate Lick, PA — Paranormal researchers investigate a dog that can successfully identify the contents of any warm beverage placed upon its head. “Quite frankly, we’re baffled,” admits Dr. Quentin Flarg of the Institute for Caffeinated Phenomena. “Also, the whole talking dog thing is kind of weird, too.”

Every hand’s a winner just like Anry’s 3 poodles, Kikuma, Saya, Rinka, and Timo V.’s, two Danish Swedish Farmdog pups, and two kittens by Catherine at Lovemeow and Mama’s pups by r/aww.
