What’s In A Name?

College sports teams have all sorts of names. The Fighting Irish, the Cornhuskers, the Spartans, the Buckeyes, and the like.

And then…there are the UConn Puppehs Huskies!

This Is Surely One Gem Of A Puppeh

[Note: This is a sad story starting out. Just want to let you know. -Ed]

There was a tiny 3-month-old puppeh in San Francisco that somehow miraculously survived a brutal trip thru a recycling center just before Christmas. Gem The Puppeh was rescued just moments from certain peril!

That was then. THIS…is now!

The NYC World According 2 Watson

Duly received from Meredith M: “So I strapped a little video cam onto my pup Watson’s back see NYC from a dachshund’s point of view. This is our first ‘Doxie Vision!!’” Video and pictures of the world’s cutest cameraman in action.” (Following quotes are from MM’s blog.)

“Using a custom-made harness, I strapped a GoPro camera to Watson’s back to get his view of Manhattan. The city can be amazing and overwhelming standing at 5’6″ so I was curious to see how it looked from 12″ high.”

[Note: this video is a bit completely coma-inducing to watch, but it’s fun to see NYC from the ground floor. S-S-S-Sorta.)

“‘Doxie Vision’ has been hilarious! Lots of butt sniffing, a maze of giant legs and terrifying close encounters with taxi wheels. The best part might be the reactions from passing New Yorkers: ‘That little dog’s got a camera!’ & ‘We’re on camera!…at least our feet are.’ More (less crooked!) videos TK.”

Well, well. This is a Tail Tale Of Two Biebers.

First up, we have Bieber The Border Collie, who is so smart he can learn a new toy name in one minute! Check it out! (From Lucy S.)

Then, we have the other Bieber, who….gets busted in Miami Beach overnight and makes world headlines.

So…which Bieber is more talented?

Another Winter Storm? Yeah, OK, Sure!

The USA Northeast has been blasted yet again with a giant winter storm. Not everyone seems to have a problem with it.

Who’s A Better Teacher?

Let’s see who teaches going down the stairs better. On one paw hand, The Parent Puppeh patiently waits while their Mighty Little Wiggling Ball O’ Squeak h-h-h-h-hesitates down the stairs.

And then you have…the Parent Kitteh.

Game ON

Today are the big AFC and NFC title games in the NFL, with the winners going to the Super Bowl. May the best teams win!

[Hold on that last part. Total bias disclaimer here: C.O. Global HQ is in Silicon Valley, where the new Niners stadium is going up. Ahem. Anyway. -Ed]

First up, the Niners. Sender-inner Christina V. explains: “Gulliver (Leonberger pup) and Sadie are ready for the game..”

“Leo the cat got in on the action too.”

“Bring on the tailgate parties and halftime shows…as long as there are bacon cheeseburgers and nachos.”

Meanwhile…up the coast:

“Everyone in Seattle is getting geared up for the game this afternoon, including the Seattle Aquarium who named their hermit crab after Marshawn Lynch…hence ‘Marshawn Pinch.’ Oh, and go HAWKS.” -Trina E.
