Nice Side-Eye, Betty! (Plus Double Rules!)

BettieLouiseWhitepawsAnd look closely. Juuuust a suggestion of some Prosh Underbite Action™ going on there, am I right?

Jim S. says, “This is Bettie ‘Louise’ Whitepaws Shumate (it helps to picture Louise Belcher from Bob’s Burgers to truly appreciate the “Louise” in her name.) Her momma was a puggle, and her daddy just had to have more than a little chihuahua in him. She loves naps, chips and anything shreddable. She Side-Eyes like a pro, loves to cross her paws and and chews more powerfully than any large dog we’ve ever had.”

Why Did The Chicken Try To Cross The Bay Bridge?

Sounds like the usual “Why did the Chicken” joke- but this really did happen, earlier today on San Francisco’s Bay Bridge.



CHP officers successfully apprehended the Chicken and took it to a local animal shelter.

But not before @BridgeChicken could log on and set up a…Twitter account.

(SFGate and KCBS Twitter.)


Look….closely. If you scroll allll the way down to the bottom of Cute, you’ll see it on the bottom left corner at the browser’s edge. Click the image to enlarge.

Gliders, Peeping Tongues, AND Tiny Waffles

The Great Corgi Escape!

Beau the Ohio Corgi is always found to be roaming the house in the late afternoon when the hoomins come home. They decided to set up a security cam (And license the footage to Barcroft #ulterior motive #ka-ching) to find out.

They just don’t make puppeh gates like they used to.

(Tastefully Offensive.)

Paris ~ 1970

20150831-21070002Imagine a smoke-filled bar, a seedy dive set off the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris. The smell of catnip hung heavily in the air. Tipsy Nip Organic Catnip? Probably. “Made in Vermont, yet available in Paris,” you muse to yourself. Wait, watch out. Look sharp! -the game is afoot.

The waitress slowly approaches. In a slinky voice colored with too many cigarillos and weary with disappointment, she said “Que sera-ce, monsieur?” The words dripped disdain. In all of the bars of the world, you walked into hers. And she had better things to do than cater to….un chat américain. Such is life.

(“Something Blue” by the Paul Horn Quintet played in the background. It suited your melancholic mood as you casually shifted your disinterested gaze her way. She was taller than you first imagined her to be.)

With a shrug, you reply, “San Pellegrino please. One baguette. Lightly toasted. I am Franklin, The Most Interesting Cat In The World.”

She sauntered off in an insouciant manner. She knew you knew she could care less. Ah, the night was young, no? Perhaps it held the promise of…what? Rendezvous?

This, like so many scenes of life, would be played out slowly, carefully. One move at a time. She had played her opening gambit, and you responded with careful aplomb. Whatever happened- there would be no regrets for Franklin this night. Pas du tout.

He is totally posing and trying to look serious and mysterious, but I doubt there is anything going on in his mind… he’s a sweetie but not the brightest penny in the fountain.”
