The Flaw in the Plan

Listen, no one has anything to worry about. I’m gonna lure him in real close and then I’m gonna hurl this stick so far that this idiot will take off running and we’ll never see him again…

What do you mean he’s a “retriever”?

I’m assuming his name ain’t MacGyver, Sarah A.

Happy and Crabby! (Wait, What?)

Says globetrotting Lauren M., “While hiking the Kumano Kodo trail in south-central Honshu, Japan, I happened across many freshwater crabs near trickling mountain streams. The markings on the shell of this particular crab were especially cute.”

HMO + Dr. Phil = …

I’m not sure I agree with that diagnosis, Doc. And I gotta ask – do you really think wrapping me up like a burrito in a rug made from a Muppet is really going to help my self confidence?

“Lion-o” is genius, and congrats on finding all the kitties new homes, Karen G.

Blind Taste Test

We’ve taken our hidden camera inside the New York’s exclusive French restaurant La Cuve de Chiots, where we’ve secretly replaced the fine coffee they normally serve with Folger’s® Crystals. Let’s watch the reaction:

So we’ll put that down as a “maybe,” Amy R.

Play Dead, Nanook!

Okay, um… maybe not quite that dead…

Nanook is drop-dead gorgeous, Coria R.

Look Yonder, Past Your Separation Anxieties, Carl

Witness the majestic landscape that surrounds us: The blue skies. The lush ravines. The deep, clear waters. Carl, the world is your oyster…so stop being such a damn barnacle!!!

Miracles of the Insect Kingdom

Of all the wonders in this tiny realm, few are more inspiring than the transformation of the humble doggerpillar. In the first stage of life, this plain brown creature is content to crawl along the ground. Then something amazing happens…

Guided by a centuries-old instinct, the doggerpillar knits a cocoon. The work is tedious and slow, mainly because the doggerpillar has trouble holding the knitting needles. After many hours of work and trips to Yarn Barn, the cocoon takes shape — a shelter that will protect the doggerpillar during the metamorphosis to come.

The work completed, the doggerpillar sleeps. Perhaps it will dream of the new life that awaits when it emerges, resplendent in color, as the majestic pupperfly.

It’s a Dog-Lead-Dog World

And now for something completely different: A dog walking a dog. Copernicus is the white dog walking the black dog, then the black dog walks him for a few seconds, then they trade off a bit, and finally become too confused to continue.

That’s so meta, David S.

Live from “The Supper Dish,” Taos, NM

I’m your host, Blackie Blackwell, and now it’s time for that darling dancing duo, those keyboard cuties, the sassy song stylings of the Floofy Sisters! Let’s hear it!

Thank you, Blackie! We just finished a six-week tour of dog parks in southern North Dakota, and gosh, it’s great to be back here with you good people. Right, Tilly?

You said it, Dilly! And right now, let’s kick things off with one of our favorites…
