Nanook of the Vegetable Garden

Across the carpeted plains of the Arctic there roams a breed known to the Inuit peoples as kuauneq inuk, or “the carrot hunter.” Traveling in packs of four to eight, these dogs have highly evolved scent receptors, specially adapted so that they can catch even the faintest whiff of beta carotene.


This is Juneau, six week old Siberian Husky, shot by Holly and sent in by Daniel M.

Has Anybody Seen My Car Keys?

Yeah, they’re over on the coffee table. [points with ear]


The AKC should be made aware of this new breed Laura Bittner!

A League of His Own

Spring training is very important. It’s time to get in the outfield and pick dandelions.


Bassets are loaded, Sandy.

Smile!

Ting! [sparkly sound effect]


Way to razzle dazzle ‘em, Payne and Monica B.

Three Coats of Whitewash

Saturday morning, and Tom Sawyer’s up to his old tricks, again!

Say, can we whitewash a little too, Sarah S.?

This is Going to be Big!

This is huge! Like the Big Dipper! Like Big Ben! Like a Big Mac! Like my owner’s absurd miscalculations!

Big! Like the vet’s bill!

Start digging, Chiquilla and Erika C.

And Now, a Public Service Announcement

Hello. I’d like to talk to you about a problem that affects tens of thousands of household animals worldwide. That problem is SPS — Serious Pet Syndrome.

SPS can strike anytime, robbing its victims of the ability to romp and/or scamper…

… left untreated, the helpless SPS sufferer can only stare pensively upwards.

But with your help, we can stop the glumness. When your local SPS volunteer calls, give generously — a head scratch, a chin tickle, a belly rub — whatever you can.

Take the Smoosh-X™ Challenge!

To prove how Smoosh-X™ Head Preserver keeps heads fresher longer, we’ve treated the puppy head on the left with Smoosh-X, and the head on the right with a well-known competing brand.

See? Even after hours of napping, the Smoosh-X head holds its shape.

But — uh-oh! — the other head is losing its shape!

There’s Always Next Year

Think your dog could run rings around those show dogs?
Then get off your tail and buy a ghastly sequined outfit and some liver treats!

And don’t forget the sterling silver polish, Coconut and Amber.
