What are Your Labor Day Weekend Plans?

I mean besides swinging, what are you Peeps up to? See you in the comments!

8-month old Cockapoo puppy Shin’yuu (Japanese for best friend) was begging to get on this swing so finally, Lisa B. obliged.

A Correction and Apology

As longtime C.O. readers know, we can’t get enough of trick pool shooting, and love to showcase new talent. And so we thought we had when we featured “Lightning Vinnie” Garbanzo, who seemingly cleared an entire rack in a single break.

Alas, it was a fraud. In this slowed-down version of the original video, you can clearly see that an accomplice was used. We regret being taken in by this base deception, and wish to assure readers that this will not happen again.

Our thanks to alert reader Eleaq for bringing this to our attention.

You don’t understand, I really need my beauty rest

JUST FIVE MORE MINUTES! [slaps alarm with paw]

Hang On, We’ll Be Right There

Wait up, we’re coming with you…

No, seriously, give us two seconds…

Honest, we’ll catch up, just hold your horses…

Check out how big the blades of grass are…

…In comparison to this prosh 9-week old Beagle-Jack Russell-Chow-Great Pyrenées pup! Can you say Holy Rule of Cuteness #14 Action!? Yes. Yes you can.

C.O. Dance Paaaaar-tay!

Oh, come on — you guys weren’t using those brain cells, anyway; it’s Friday. Now get up out of those chairs and dance, dance, dance!

Thank you, butterflize76!

Kitty was Having a Serious Identity Crisis

Heeeeey, Brother Hermit Crab! Sorry I’ve been so absent; Auntie Squirrel was teaching me how to store nuts for winter.

Ohhh Nooo!

Mr. Bill didn’t know what was more disconcerting – the fact that Gumby had turned on him so horribly, or the realization that Gumby’s waxer really had his work cut out for him.

Mr. Bill should say goodbye to that appendix, Rebekah F.

We Haven’t Painted Them Yet

Look what Esther B. spotted: “This is the new litter of Sadie the Dalmatian. She birthed eight puppies, six boys and two girls. The proud mommies, Kathy and Jamie, are very happy to have these adorable puppies in their home. And yes, a boy and girl will be named Pongo and Perdita.”

Vintage Overboard

“Hey, guys? Could somebody throw me one of those — oh, what are they called? — those rescuing things? Oh, you know, the round things with the hole. Um, it’s named just like the candy? Totally drawing a blank here; it’s not Necco Wafers, I know that… Now I’ve got the word preserver stuck in my head, so it must be that candy with lots of preservatives… Man, it’s right on the tip of my tongue…”
