“It’s worse than that, dear — we’re out of coffee!”

Aaand it is now Derpy Dervish, Dizzy Lizzy and Twirly Whirly for a photo finish!

“Hi. I’m Mookie the Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie). I was paralyzed for awhile earlier this summer, but it’s okay. Turns out, I’m pretty mighty!”

Mookie’s Mom, Laurie A., tells us, “One night, four year old Mookster was walking a little funny, and by 4am it was clear something was wrong, so we took him to the emergency vet. They told us a degenerated disc had ruptured (a genetic condition), and was pressing into his spinal cord. By midday, his back legs and tail were paralyzed. They rushed him to surgery, but he was still paralyzed when we took him home a few long days later. They assured us that his chances of recovery were good. I did physical therapy every day for a month, moving his legs in little circles, and later, having him walk laps in the bathtub. The day he first wagged his tail (a few days after we brought him home) was such a happy day! Since then he has steadily gained his strength back. We are so happy for our little guy to be running around again!!”

I swear someone did not just send me these pics in some lame PowerPoint. All pics are Internet floaters (ew that sounds gross), and mostly thanks to Uncle Wire.

Thank You

On this 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Milo presents this remembrance created especially for Cute Overload.

Many thanks to Anita & Toronto Fire Station 332.

I Love a Ball Game

It’s refreshing to sit back, relax, and watch people play fetch for a change.

Butt Bed Ninjaaa!

Ha! My superior powers are stealth, sabotage and sometimes, assassinashons!
