Détente

“We now have peace in the land. A truce between Bojangles (former summer houseguest, now furever kitty) has finally relinquished a spot on ‘his desk’ for the new puppeh ‘Gracie.'”

I Went To McDonalds Like U Asked

Here’s your Quarter Pounder. I forgot the fries though, I didn’t have room in my mouf, and I got no pockets.

It’s International Assistance Dog Week!

It’s running through August 10th. Find out more here, and don’t forget to give this little knucklehead below a virtual snorgle! (And isn’t that John Cleese with the narration from a couple years back? Dogtober sounds like a great idea–maybe we can combine it with ‘Tocktober?)

The Anatomy Of Smoosh

Sometimes a puppeh has so many folds, crevices and smooshes ya need a roadmap. One map, coming up! From Cuteporter Julia G.: “I think it’s really important for Cute Overload readers to know that no two smooshy faces are alike. Your dog’s smoosh may not be as complex as my dog’s smoosh or it may be even more complex.”

“It may have ear smoosh or lip smoosh but no neck smoosh. Or it may have oodles of neck smoosh with just a little bit of nose smoosh. A “smoosh” (lowercase) is known as the head/maw/neck of wrinkly faced breeds!”
