More Drams

Get ready for more drama, People. [shaking head]

Dramatic Chipmunk started it:

Then the Surprise Kittens were all ‘nah-ahn';


Then Cupcake Dog was all ‘way':

And now, this hamster is just shocked:

Save it for your Mama, Alex “Danger” D.

Mastering the “I Miss You” Look

Having found a suitable human family, it is important to keep it on a short leash, as it were, by instilling a feeling of guilt whenever they leave.

Cultivate a wistful, far-away stare to display when your humans leave for work, bowling night, or any activity not centered around you. The use of barriers, like a window or chain-link fence, adds a touch of ironic pathos.

You're seeing a Cocker Spaniel on the side, aren't you?

Deep Thoughts

“I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they chose a king, they don’t just go by size, because I bet there are some Chihuahuas with some good ideas.”

Lori S., that is DEEP. Deep Thought provided by the one and only Jack Handey.

Chief Puppeh Officer: Goose!

Where's my mocha, damn it!?!?

My name is Goose and I’m pleased to announce that I’ve accepted the position of Chief Puppeh Officer at Cute Overload. Meg has graciously given me the use of Sparkster as my lackey, I mean, assistant, so any typos or spelling errors are his fault, natch.

A little about me.  I am of Italian Greyhound descent and am of blue coloring. Anyone who says I look “grey” will be immediately fired. Although I’m only 13 weeks old, I have had most of my shots and bring a wealth of experience to the organization. As a bonus I just had a recent stool sample with no parasites! At the top of my list to focus on, cut wasteful spending. (I’m looking at you, Sparkster…)

Additionally, I’ll spend a good part of my day seeking out cozy sunbeams, whimpering for attention, napping, trying to find the most toxic substances on the floor to eat, napping, chewing on electrical cords and leather goods, napping and finally pooping in closets and other out of the way places. Surprise!

You’ve got to keep the staff on their toes…

Any New Puppy Owner’s First Day

“Don’t give me that look – you know you’re not supposed to do that…”


“Noooo….not that either…”


“Oh come on –how can I say no to this –these are verrrry expensive earphones, so NO-NO….”


“OK, I think we have a problem.”


Toothy, Kim B.

Ushering in Nosevember

In icy Nosevember, as the west wind blows
As mercury plummets and shutters close
As candles flicker their final throes
What lurks nearby, do you suppose?

Ruh-rohs!

From highs or lows, in grim repose
Its steady, strident sniffing grows
Like tell-tale hearts in tales of Poe’s
And where it comes from, no one knows.

So heed this warning, to all those
Who seek out warmth for frozen toes
Where icy moistness sometimes goes,
Beware the chill of … THE LURKING NOSE!
