Really, Riley? Really?

Well folks, it looks like Riley’s been caught. He would have got away with smuggling those diamonds too, except for one thing. Stuffies. No dog can resist ripping the stuffing out of stuffies.

Cinduckerella’s Glass Slipper

Bring forth the glass 3D-model slipper! This is Buttercup, who lives at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. Buttercup was born with only one proper foot. But the fairy godpeeps at NovaCopy came to the rescue with la très nouveau slippere’ made just for Buttercup! And the rest, they say, will be fairy tale prosthetic prosh-thetic history.

Ow Chihuahua

I thought I could fly – but I just forgot how to land.

“My chihuahua, Oliver, dislocated his wrist jumping out of my mom’s arms. He was having a hard time chewing his bone with his cast! I thought this would fit nicely under Cute or Sad?” -Dana N.

But…I Want to

She won’t play anymore. Is she tired? Can’t you make her play with me?

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

but if you try and try and try and try and try and try and try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.

Obvious, Much?

I’m actually a pacifist.


Lucky the Boxer is brought to us by Jennifer S. and now we feel lucky, too.

Aw C’mon, Smile for the Camera!

“I was in Barbados last week on vacation and found this awesome pouty-mouthed crab on Bathsheba beach. Just look at his little surly face! I thought this would be a great addition to Cute Overload. I shot these photos, so you can credit me, Raena C.!”

Trisha H. promises her Japanese Chin, Yoshi, really is a happy dog! “Yoshi is a rescue that we could not imagine life without. When I took this picture, he had just finished chasing cows, so he’s a bit dirty. His hobbies include violently licking furniture, being confused, snuggling with his shih tzu sister, and looking at Cute Overload! I believe this photo is Cute Overload worthy! My furbabies and I love Cute Overload, keep doing what you do!” (OK, OK, since you mentioned Cute Overload three times!)

Tobermory Batwinghands

And now everyone, for your Peg, the-kind-hearted-Mom-who-helps-Edward-Scissorhands, moment!

“Each year vaccinated wildlife rescuers hand rear baby flying foxes. At the end of the hand rearing process, (usually at about 13 weeks of age) the weaned babies are sent to baby bat crèche where they learn appropriate battie socialization skills. Tobermory had wing tip injuries sustained on rescue and shared the hospital aviary with several others, including 2 little guys who still required a morning bottle feed. As I searched in the bedding materials for the recipients, (weaned) Tobermory snuck over and made off with one of the bottles. I was impressed with his stealth and ingenuity and the fact he knew the bottle needed to be upended for the milk to flow. He afterwards got a bowl of warm milk for his trouble. Tobermorey is a grey headed flying fox and after his injuries were resolved, he was released back into the wild with his 60 crèche companions.”
