National Dog Show Action!

nosevemberFrom 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.”

Saturday Night Side-Eye

20140716_164005[Right, right, officially it’s #Caturday night on C.O. But then if we used that, we wouldn’t have the alliteration necessary for the headline…..would we? -Ed.]

“Belle wondering what am I up to,” says Carol P.

Ivan The Terrible, High Prince Of Moscow

Got two things goin’ on here of note. First and foremost, one of the best names for a puppeh…ever. Then of course, the devastating Side-Eye AKA Rule Of Cuteness #95.

“This is an update on my daughter’s Wiener Dog, Ivan the Terrible, High Prince of Moscow. (Yes, that is his real, legal, and full name.) This is a little beanie she knit him herself. She even caught him “Throwing off a little side-eye.” He is not a fan of his little hat, but it was just too Cute to not send it in before taking it off him!”- Michelle T.

In The Big J: Things Are Not Always What They Seem To Be

[*Note: the premise of this post requires you to scroll -slowly- through the images. -Ed.]

To start off, you might think “Oh, this lady has a nice hairstyle.” Right?

Some kind of sweater or high-collared jacket thing on, too. Fine.

Hmmmm.

Can You Say “Rule 97?”

You sure can. This is Pony, everyone- a prime Nosevember candidate, too. “Rule of Cuteness #97: “Head To Body Ratio: If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s Cute.”

“Noodle loves stuffed food plushies, walks in the park and hugging his Toe Beans. He’s not the biggest fan of being in costume.” -Zlata and Don.

Time For Some Rule O’ Cuteness Action

imageNumber 7 works well here, methinks. “A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always Cute.”

Hey There, Per-fessor!*

Got some distinctly Cute Side-Eye going on here. This would be “Theo ‘The Professor PhD-og,’ from Cuteporter Lee W.

Triple Nosevember Rule ACTION!

photoGot a Triple Rule spectacular here, People! (Almost said Spec-‘tock-ular- whew, that was last month. Now, we got the noses.) But let’s check this out.

#32: If you’re caught doing something bad, it’s Cute.

#43: Protruding bottom lips are Cute.
