Ever Heard Of Rule Of Cuteness #32?

20150908_080020_resizedAhem: “Rule of Cuteness #32: If you’re caught doing something bad, it’s cute.”

Now, we’re not necessarily suggesting that Sebastian here has done something bad…although he looks guilty as can be. Has to have something to do with the case he’s sitting on. (Maybe he stuffed The Dog in there?)

“Our naughty but extremely good looking ragdoll! Always sitting on Daddy’s lunch box. Sebastian the cutest muffin!” -Scott S.

(Say Like Hervé Villechaize:) “The Tongue! The Tongue!”

Poncho the Chi formerly known as Cooper(It’s from Fantasy Island. You know, late 1970s-mid 1980s? Tattoo? Mr. Roarke? Same guy as the Fine Corinthian Leather and Wrath of Khan?” Never mind. Acknowledging ROC #48– Go ahead, Julie.

Last fall you featured my dog (then known as Cooper but now known as “Poncho”) as a “ResQte of the Week.” When I got him from the shelter, they estimated his age at 4 yrs old. Well, after getting his teeth cleaned, our Vet estimates his age at closer to 10 years! I think I’ve been Catfished!! Ha ha ha!”

From Jasmine F.: “This is my 5 Month old Samoyed puppy Rufus – and I may be biased, but I think he’s the cutest ever.” No argument here. And what ABOUT that Side-Eye. Textbook.



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.”


“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)

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!”
