Nice Side-Eye, Betty! (Plus Double Rules!)

BettieLouiseWhitepawsAnd look closely. Juuuust a suggestion of some Prosh Underbite Action™ going on there, am I right?

Jim S. says, “This is Bettie ‘Louise’ Whitepaws Shumate (it helps to picture Louise Belcher from Bob’s Burgers to truly appreciate the “Louise” in her name.) Her momma was a puggle, and her daddy just had to have more than a little chihuahua in him. She loves naps, chips and anything shreddable. She Side-Eyes like a pro, loves to cross her paws and and chews more powerfully than any large dog we’ve ever had.”

C.O.X.C.U.!

“I Took This Picture Of My Bestest Friend”

IMG_2224Georgette N. says, “This is Betty (full name Bettina Chiweiner.) She is about 7 years old and I was so lucky to find her at Pets in Need in Redwood City, CA. Betty loves to sleep and it is often hard to drag her out of bed in the morning. Here she just woke up with her version of One Flap Up. I took this picture of my bestest friend.”

Prosh Blorp Bundle: Little Z

Let’s get this outta the way first: I CALL MATCHINGKS. OK. Here we have a rather Blorpular Mr. McStubbersons Jr. by the name of Ziama. He’s out and about on the outside paddock and in the pool- just the right way to spend a hot summer at the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in London.

Of course, we can’t forget this Rule of Cuteness #07: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute.

Caturday Night: Peppers Is Rule #58 All The Way!

unnamedEmmu M. says, “I don’t know if he counts as ‘One Flap Up,’ because Peppers only has one flap! He’s my sweet boy…I adopted him from the shelter and he had just gotten surgery to have his ear removed (it was deformed and kept giving him ear infections.). He had food allergies, a skin ailment, and behavioral issues. But we toughed it out through the roughest patches, and today he is a happy, healthy, loving addition to our family!”

Very Rare RULE Noted!

20150802_183327Rule of Cuteness #46: “Yin-Yang is cute.” While it IS true these two aren’t curled up, they got the Black/White (yeah yeah yeah) thing going, so it works for us. “Meet Ms. Belle and Mr. Cash. Two very loved boxers.” -Faye S.

Ultimate Rule #58 Greyhound ACTION

BWwaSpUFrom Jacqueline F., who says “Reddit user ‘suzaboo’s’ dog looks like the perfect example of your newest Rule! So adorable!”

Paisley (The Sequel)

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!”

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.
