Flashback Friday

stubby

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we would like to salute all the furry-four-legged troopers! For all their bravery, we thank them.

This is Sergeant Stubby, a homeless pup in 1919 who became the mascot for America’s 102nd “Yankee” Infantry Division in France. Stubby alerted soldiers to the threat of mustard gas in time for them to don their protective masks, captured a spy all by himself and was decorated many times for, “heroism of the highest caliber”. Stubby was also famous for boosting morale in the trenches and cheering the wounded in hospital.

Sunrise starts the day
Yogi greets it with a howl
Then romps down the beach

Do I LOOK Like I Care….

…whether or not I slobber on the couch? Some silly hoomin always wipes it up, anyway.

THIS JUST IN: Maru Meets Ladder

We’ve seen Maru do a lot of things, mostly sliding across Mugumogu’s pristine floors to smoosh himself into a hapless Amazon box. This time, though- His Royal Thickness goes VERTICAL.

“This is Scrappy Doo. She’s my cuddlebug and her nose knows when there’s food because she quickly gets into begging mode. I’m in nursing school so I don’t get to see her during the week and I really miss her. Your website helps me get my cute-fix in when I’m away from her. Thank you.” -Sandra L.

Tongues: Regulation Disapproval Equipment

Overheard at a store last week from little boy riding on Dad’s shoulders, “Daddy, do bunnies have tongues?” ..beat.. (Dad’s not sure! Customers hold their breath.) …..”Yes, son, bunnies have tongues.” (whew)

These are for you, cute kid (and Dad), wherever you are:
