The New Adventures Of Pancake!

Tiny, fluffy, but please hold the butter and syrup. Paul P. over the Big Pond in the UK just alerted us to the story of Pancake The Duckster, who lives with his adopted hoomin and takes trips to a Manchester office where he is (rightfully) adored. Follow Pancake on Twitter, of course.


And, you know- Ducksters are a big deal in the UK- why, they’ve even got their own Duck Lanes!

Speak UP, Merlin- We Can’t Hear Ya!

Merlin now holds the World Record for loudest purr by a domestic cat, according to Guinness World Records. They measured his purr at 67.8 decibels! Quoting their site, “At almost 70 decibels, Merlin’s purr is as noisy as a conversation or an air conditioner and nearly as loud as a shower or even a dishwasher!”

Happy 89th To Queen Elizabeth

With C.O. being Northern California-based, we’re not exactly subjects of The Crown, but since Her Majesty has had more than 30 Corgis during her 63 year reign, we thought it appropriate to tip a nod of the C.O. cap her way!

Ok, so you’re a tiny Shetland Pony named Pedro. You arrive at the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton, London U.K. So far, so good….whoops, wait. Not good. Problem: You can’t see over the stall door! (Left photo.)

You Own Two Cows. You Forget To Lock The Door. And…

…they decide to, um, MOOve in. It seems these two, named Five and Six, wandered into Pat Coston’s Guernsey, UK home while she was taking a shower.
