Talk About Being Scared of Your Own Shadow.

Look bub, not all baby animals get to look like fluffy otters or Golden Retrievers when they’re born. Some, like us groundhogs, grow into our looks.

Kathleen L. says that these baby groundhogs were brought into her Foothill Animal Clinic after a construction crew found them while bulldozing a site. I’m not sure they have names, but I humbly suggest Hans Moleman & Gollum.

Just Another Thursday for Gertrude

Tipsy on white wine spritzers, Gertrude’s Bridge Club take advantage of her narcolepsy…and inadvertently tell sorority sisters everywhere to talk to a well-manicured hand.

That’s a good dog, Pascal and Isabella I.

Do You Mind?!

We’re trying to have a serious discussion about contemporary things here, so why don’t you take that camera somewhere else like a good boy?

No? Fine, you twisted little perv, be that way… (slurp, slurp, slurpity slurp…)

For the minimalists who love their pets but hate the unsightly dog bed:

Can we do something about those unsightly cords, Leah L.?

The Shrinking Violet

These 7th grade canteens make me really uncomfortable. Why do all the gerbils like that rat, Francine? I mean, she’s pretty…but she’s – you know – a rat.

Spidermouse! Spi-der-mouse! Does whatever a Spidermouse does! Which would be what, Dave C.?

Cha-cha-cha!

No, you lead with the right paw! Come on! If an uncoordinated 4-legged shag carpet can do it, surely you can manage!
