Whoa-mance

Get over me, hon. I’m way outta your league.


Ron S., it looks like Bella is having a little talk with Snickers. Hope Snickers took it well.

Happy Birthday, JFK!

John F. Kennedy was a president, husband, father and man. Today, we are celebrating JFK the animal lover! He owned and loved many animals: Tom Kitten the cat, Zsa Zsa the rabbit, parakeets named Bluebell and Marybelle, hamsters named Debbie and Billie, a horse named Sardar, ponies named Macaroni, Tex and Leprechan, and dogs named Shannon, Wolf, Clipper, Charlie and Pushinka.

He loved his pets so much, President Kennedy was the first to request that his dogs meet the Presidential helicopter when it arrived at the White House.

Pushinka was a gift of peace from the Soviet Premier Nikita Krushchev. Pushinka was already famous for being a descendant of Strelka, one of the first dogs sent to space, now she was living it up at the White House. Pushinka was very good friends with Welsh terrier, Charlie.


Soon, they had four pups named Butterfly, White Tip, Blackie and Streaker.


Here are the Kennedys at Hyannis Port with Irish spaniel Shannon, Welsh terrier Charlie, German shepherd Clipper and the pups of Pushinka and Charlie.


A regular at the White House was a pony, and they called him Macaroni.


We salute you, JFK, for your animal-adoring ways!

Horse sense, of course, of course.

You can lead a gift horse of a different color to change its spots midstream but you can’t make him shut the barn door.

You can hold your horses but you can’t make ‘em drink, jurvetson.

The Pintoltimate In Cuteness

Try not to hurt yourself admiring the entirely intoxicating adorable-ness coming at ya through the screen.



If you can still breathe, go check out Joanne A.’s website for…wait for it…MORE TINY HORSES!

Pinto Bean!

This cutie just wants some lovin’. Maybe a scritchin’ at the ears or a rub on the rump.

Perhaps he’d like to get in your car and be taken to your home where he can lounge on your chaise.


How did you ever get back in your car and drive away, rkramer62?

April Fool!

The Huffington Post has steered us to many of the cute videos you’ve squeed to on C.O., and we’ve wanted to thank them in the worst way — and we think you’ll agree, that spoof page was it. Seriously, we can’t get e-nuff of April Fool’s Day, and hope you enjoyed this year’s prank. Thanks to Meg, Pyrit and Crazy Pants for adding jokes and pics, and Arianna Huffington for not suing. Until next year…

DON’T…


STOP…


LAUGHING!

Love the ‘hay’ background screen.
