Paisley (The Sequel)

image6Paisley got a lot of attention this week- being our featured ResQte Of The Week and also getting her very own Rule.

When we informed Paisley’s hoomin Meaghan S. about this, she said “WHAT AN HONOR! I just told Paisley. She said, “arooroooroooooo thank yooouuuuu!” You know the moment I adopted Paisley I knew she would be a dog of many ears, and I’m all about the cute ears!”

“Some days she has ears completely folded over, some days she has one flap up, some days she has one half flap up, and some days she has Dobby ears (you know, from Harry Potter!?). PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE! Thank you Cute Overload!”

Rule Of Cuteness #58 (Follow-Up)

SingleHighAlertWe’ve been getting some emails in relating to our latest Rule which went up two days ago. (“If you’re flyin’ with one flap up, that’s cute.)

“As you can imagine, we are TOTALLY psyched for ROC #58. In case you run into any challenges to the new Rule, I share theis photo of my dog, Harry (full name, Harry Lyme VanOccupanther). Note the amazing control he seems to have ( I’ve named it :Independent, Individuated, Graduated Single-Flap control™!) Thanks for your website- it makes me happy every single day no matter what.” -Clare.

LATE UPDATE:

Pamela S. writes: “I run a home dog boarding business and each time we get a new guest, I take their photo to post to my blog to give prospective customers a better idea of what we’re about. I’d taken pics of our last guest, Daisy, as usual and the best one – I felt – was one with one ear up and one ear down. I’d even blogged that it must have followed one of your Rules of Cuteness. I just didn’t realise that it was a rule that had yet to be written!”

The Peeps Have Spoken: Announcing Rule Of Cuteness #58!

RULESCERTIFICATE1Gigi The Cat Lady: “I vote YES! ‘One Flap Up’ should be a new Rule Of Cuteness!!”

G Mac: “‘One Flap Up’ isn’t ALREADY a Rule?!?!! It definitely should be because it’s TOTALLY Qte!”

debg: “Love this sweet goggie. And I second (third?) the requests for a new ROC– ‘One Flap Up’ is pure win.”

Smartypants: “Another vote for ‘One Flap Up’ – definitely cute!”

Faye: ‘One Flap Up’ = good ROC.”

Kristin: “I vote YES to the ‘One Flap Up’ Rule — simply one of the cutest things ever!”

Rachael: “One Flap Up’ simply MUST be a ROC! The world demands it!”

Clare: ‘One Flap Up’ HAS TO BE A RULE.!! And not just because my own rescue pup has independent, individuated, graduated single-flap control!! PUHLEEZE make it a Rule.”

(This post was inspired by THIS post. The sheer desperation of Clare AND THE ALL CAPS is what shoved this one through, BTW.) Anyway. To welcome in Rule # 58, (“If You’re Flyin’ With One Flap Up, That’s Cute” aka “The Paisley Rule,”) we have this email just in from Holly H. “If ‘One Flap Up’ is going to be a thang, let me introduce Luigi. He came to visit us on while we were shooting ‘Home Free in Atlanta‘ and we kept him cool in the makeup trailer. His ear fringe is delightful! He was a master of ‘One Flap Up’ and looking a bit guilty!

Meet Buttonz: The Shichon Craze Continues

This is the fourth set of Shichon photos we’ve received in the last week, and second for today! I must confess I’d never seen nor heard of a Shichon before. But now that I have, I desperately want one. Like Buttonz right here.

Pardon Us For A Little Rules Housekeeping
