Top Fifty Nosevember Schnozzles 4.0: The Finale!

After a frantic and massive load of Cute-Mails from y’all (thank-you!)..we’ve arrived at Nosevember’s conclusion. [Insert Sadness Emoticon Here. -Ed]

But hey! 🙂 We’ve some 2013 Cute Overload Calendars to give away! We’ve received a HUMONGOUS DELUGE OF TOP QUALITY NOSES, and we’ve been poring over every little, well, pore– trying to decide which are the best. And ya know, it’s TUFF! They’re all FAB and we appreciate everyone taking the time to send ’em in.

We know your little critter is prosh to you, and they’re prosh to us, too.

And you know, we’d really like you to you keep sending us your photos! You put the “u” in Cute Overload! We like this site to be a reflection of You, Our Loyal Peeps!

Remember, JPEGs in a decent size are best. Sharp, clear images and good lighting so we can see all the REDONK DETAILS. Can’t be teeny like a thumbnail, and some big ol’ honkin’ 50mb video file that crashes GMail won’t work, either. (Anytime you send a video link, make sure it’s a YouTube link, k?)
