You know those little puppehs, where they have the real tightly packed, thick, soft fur? And when you DIVE IN FOR A SNORGLE, it has that great soft-puppeh-sorta-bebeh-powder-like-smell? And you go “SNORFSNORFSNORF….ahhhhhhhhhhh.”

This is one of those puppehs. Say hi to Seamus, everyone.

“Attached is my Beagle/Border Collie mix, Seamus, when he was 7 weeks old chewing his toys in spec-tockular fashion. Happy ‘Tocktober!!!” -Kate P.

“Here is my harlequin bunneh Baily. She is a pretty large bun and loves to lay with her legs back, surrounded by her stuffed animals which she loves to cuddle with. It looks strange and adorable at the same time. Photo’s taken by me. Hope you can share these!” -Angela M.

CO Welcomes Baby Gulliver

ytytyttRemember earlier in the summer when little Jay Vitazko passed away– such a sad day for Jay’s hoomin Christina V., and all the CO Peeps. Good news, though! Stupid Sadie (Jay’s term, not ours) has a new co-conspirator! Please say hi to Baby Gulliver. (Who looks like a Gund Stuffy.) From CV: “This is our new puppy, a 9 week old Leonberger pup named Gulliver…”



“…who decided to throw his own personal poo party on his first night at home in his crate, so he had to get a bath, and was quite pathetic about it! He ended up falling asleep in the sink afterwards. :).”


“He was pretty shocked that we weren’t impressed by his poop painting skills.”


“He is all fluff, fat rolls and paws…and so adorable. Our other dog Sadie the border collie mix LOVES him already, and is thrilled to have taken a protege under her paw…literally!”




(And Tofu wanted to give Jay a shout-out! Thanks to Alexa B.)

There’s always a place for Jay at CO.

‘Tocktober 1st: 24 Hours Of Tocks is next!

No Panda Cam After Tonight? (Updated With PonchoCam!)

“With the recent warning that the Smithsonian Panda Cam at the National Zoo might stop in the event of a looming U.S. government shutdown tonight, my 24-pound cat Poncho and I were getting our final fix…maybe I can offer a substitute “PonchoCam” until Congress lets us see Mei Xiang and the baby again?” -Cuteporter Donna R.



And we’ve got ourselves a PonchoCam!
