Friday Haiku: ‘Tocktober

Fawn‘Tocktober is near
Lots and lots of fuzzy butts
It starts in twelve days

“Hello, hay servant to sheep Missy-Moo and pals here, I wondered if you would be interested in these little ‘Tocks? We have a number of fawns growing up around the property, and this little one had just taken a drink from the sheep’s water :)” -Carol B.

Hey! You Wanna Play Or Something?

Thanks to Jeanette for this Totes Adorbs video of Bambi and Thumper playing in the front yard of the Lula W. Dorsey Museum in Estes Park, Colorado. (She originally sent a 9News clip that said “Get ready to be Overloaded in some Cuteness” but it wouldn’t work in Chrome/embed/whatever. So we went to Plan B! Thanks to Colorado’s News Leader for the semi-plug.)

And let’s have us some ORIGINAL Bambi and Thumper Action while we’re at it, OK?

Bebeh Pudu Spotted In The Big Apple!

People, this is The Real Deal. A Leetle Pudu Fawn was born May 12th at the Queens Zoo. Tony J. says “Paws-up is a Rule of Cuteness, right?” Correct. Numero Uno.

When they’re born they’re only SIX inches high, and weigh less than a pound!

(H/T The Gothamist.)

“Never Know What You’ll Find In The Cemetery..”

101_2955…writes Sharon L. Well, hmmm. Come to think of it, you usually DO know what you’ll find in a cemetery.


Anyway, she goes on to add, “This little guy is only about a week old and was seen in the Allegheny Cemetery here in Pittsburgh. The lashes!! The eyes!! So tiny. Please remind people that a fawn all alone more than likely isn’t abandoned. Leave it alone. Momma leaves them in a safe place and comes back to nurse. It’s fawn season!!!”

[*Note: People, we have a BIG Wombat Wednesday cued up for you. Kodie went on his first date! #REDONK. PLUS: Bebeh (REDACTED) Wearing (REDACTED)! And (hopefully)…a surprise from Japan. Waiting on the video. One word: Owls. -Ed.]

Mr. McChubbersons Gets His Bark On

Watch Mr. McChubbersons get all wiggly and wobbly as he plays with his friend from the nearby woods.

Flashback Friday: Happy (Early) Birthday, Audrey Hepburn

The screen legend would have been 86 Monday. Portia C. sent us these photos and said “You know that on May 4th will be Audrey Hepburn’s birthday, shopping with her pet fawn Pippin (Ip for short) in Beverly Hills, circa 1958.”



ResQte Della Settimana II

Just got this one in from Jillian L. in New Zealand (See–we’re global) -a fisherman rescued a deer! “I came across it on The Dodo. You get the scenic Italian coastline, ResQte Li’l Deer with Prosh Crossed Hooflets, and by my calculations this one has FOUR Rules of Cuteness; 2, 23, 50 and 51. I love Cute Overload! I can find pics of anerable and prosh anipals in lots of places, but only C.O. Cuteologists have the talk to go with the walkies.”

[*Note: Here’s more on the story– see if you can get Chrome to translate if you can’t read Italian. No luck here. -Ed.]

Now, stand by for some rapid-fire Italian!

Pardon Me While I Nom This

c4These photos just scream BAMBI at ya, and in fact that was the the subject line of Carol B.’s email to us. “Hello, Missy-Moo the sheep’s hay servant here, I saw the lovely photos of deer a few days ago and it reminded me of some shots I took a couple of years ago.”

“A little Bambi was being a typical youngster by sticking it’s tongue out at me!”

“I hope you find them just as cute as i did :).”


Bambi ‘Tocks Spotted In Maryland!

Wildlife 019‘Tocks are not just for ‘Tocktober, you know. “Yesterday evening, we had a small group of white-tailed deer visit our house. They were right outside our house, nibbling our bushes and peeking in our windows like fuzzy peeping toms! Here are a couple of shots for you, all taken through our windows. It was a rainy day here in Maryland on Friday and the photos are at dusk, hence the mood lighting. Enjoy! One is a close up of a little guy/gal peeking in the window, the other shot is near our driveway.” -Liz K.

Nose Boopin’ In Nara Park, Japan

We’ve heard about the famous Deer in Nara Park, Japan. How they basically own the place, right? Giselle C. visited The Big J and has taken Nose Booping to an entirely different level. (Speakers up, please.)


And no, we’re not too sure what the sign means.
