C.O. Crime Alert!

Police are on the lookout for Daisy McFloon, the so-called “Napping Bandit.” Authorities have released this composite sketch, which the suspect helpfully posed for.

Philip C. writes: “Our boxer-hound rescue Izzy can be very patient as a model. Also likes looking out the window. And pictures of herself.”

Flashback Friday

Meet Horace, the bright-eyed, domesticated hare of Dublin, Ireland, 1956, who, “hops blithely through the kitchen, hanging out in the bathroom or sitting quietly on the living room sofa” and “holds sway in the household, and the humans are there, for the most part, simply to do Horace’s bidding.”

Friday Haiku: From Jørpeland With Loff

“Brother took this pic
When I was in Jørpeland.
Cute enough to post?”

From Holland’s Marije S.

Green-Eyed Monster? Hardly!

Annika M.: “We just relocated from Florida to Panama. It’s great down here…besides the smouldering humidity, mosquitoes the size of canaries, and sugar ants. Recently, I made breakfast for my guy, and picked a flower in the backyard to put on the tray. Lo and behold, I noticed the ‘stem’ moving and screamed like a banshee, running off thinking the flower somehow had come to life.”


“When I came back to see what it really was, I saw a mantis peeking out from under a petal, looking at me like, ‘Why did you wake me up?‘”


“He was very curious and gentle. After the photos, I took him back out to find a new flower-home.”

(*Tried and tried to fit VH’s ‘Panama’ in somewhere- could NOT make it work. RRR. -B.)

There Should Be a Law

For national Cute Overload security reasons, piggalettes and duckalettes cannot share the same blankie at the same time. Too dedleh! Oh, what’s this then? …innocent whistle.

“Hvor er grisen?” is Norwegian for, “Where’s the piglet?” Via YouTube.

Hmm, Wonder Who Ate All the Sushi?

And if you look very closely you can see it still swimming in those deep blue eyes!

“This is Abby, a handsome Snowshoe Siamese just adopted from Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue. Who could resist that mustache?” -Cynthia S.

Speckle Belleh!

Why does everybody say stripes and polka dots don’t go together? They’re fabulous!

“We had such a fun time being featured on CO last time we wanted to provide an update. Puddles now has over 1k likes on his Facebook page and got a haircut along the way. He has smelled many more butts than before and even walked down stairs for the first time!” -Marcos & Missy

R U Ready For Some Football?

It looks like this little guy is! First NFL game of the season is tonight at 8:30ET, Ravens @ Broncos! (sorry George, Vikes don’t play ’til Sunday.)




“Here are some photos of my 1-year-old French Bulldog, George Sempris Richards (AKA Ziggy.) Check out his profile on Dogster for more photos. He’s a big football fan. Go Vikings!” – Melanie B.
