“Ok, so it’s a Snout, but Tilley Tiny Pig would like to be considered for Nosevember. Tilley is applying Rule Of Cuteness #95 for good measure. Thanks, Elaine R.”
C.O.’s reach is GLOBAL, we tells ya.
So, how ’bout this kitteh, Meghan B? “This is Dulcinea Princessa Pequeña Rodriguez, or Dulci for short. I adopted her in 2001 from The Seattle Animal Shelter and we are now living the sweet life in Lugano, Switzerland. She enjoys nature programs, snacks of prosciutto, and lounging in her fancy basket. I hope you enjoy her freckled Nose and Super Calico Action as much as I do!”
That was the subject line of Carolyn H.’s email- with the above photo a classic example of Rule Of Cuteness #40: “Sleeping in a sunbeam is Cute.”
[And who are we to argue? It’s our Rule! -Ed.]
Classic Example of Rule of Cuteness #13: “Juicy” eyes & noses are Cute. “Here’s a photo of my cuddle cat, Circe, showing off the cute Maru-like freckle on her nose!” -Nancy K.
This first Floppy Eared Photo just keeled me DED DED DED so it’s not gonna wait ’til tomorrow. “This dusky little schnozz belongs to Valentino (AKA ‘Tino’), my 11-month old rescue,” writes Erica P.
“He’s 16 pounds of long sproingy legs and, as you can see in the above picture, he is an ecstatically happy puppeh. Tino’s favorite things are: (1) Snorgling Oscar, my elderly gentleman of a cat…”
“..(2) Running at the speed of light, and (3) Leaping over tall buildings (or at least over the extra tall baby gate I installed in hopes of giving Oscar a breather.)”
From the C.O. Mailbag, Clare C. writes thusly: “Hello C.O. Your site cheers me through my workdays! I was lucky enough to attend the Philadelphia Dog Show today. It’s a great show because you can meet the dogs when they are not in the ring! (Cuteness TSUNAMI!) Of course I took tons of pictures, but I have two that might be share-worthy because they seem to meet your rigorous C.O. guidelines.”
* “Attached please find a LOVELY spaniel (above, sorry I did not get his/her proper name) relaxing before going in to the ring. Clearly a candidate for Nosevember.”
* “Also, please see this Mastiff-ish guy (below) throwing some Serious Side-Eye.”
