Many C.O. thanks to Rebecca M. for this one! “This is a picture I just took of some Prairie Dogs snuggling at the San Francisco Zoo.” Of course, this is a great shot for ‘Tocktober- it’s just weeks away.
Anyway, give it your best shot for a headline, and we’ll update later at 1pm PT!

This little Prairie Dog is simply not gonna take no for an answer. And if the cat really doesn’t wanna play, well, there’s always that cardboard box. (Great Jazz Hands display and Backwards Movement going on, too.)
Everybody do the Jump-Yip! It’s easy and fun- watch those pounds MELT away. (It might make you a little jumpy, though. And your neighbors will yell at you to knock it off.)

But these do just fine, too! OM NOM NOM NOM NOM. OK, everybody in the Conga Line!
“This was taken at a highway rest stop in the middle of Wyoming. Very friendly prairie dogs begging from passing travelers.” -Cuteporter Gary K. with his Kodak DC280 Zoom.
