“Greetings Cute Overlords! This is our Lab/Chow mix Sorsha (Von Wigglebutt to give her her full title) demonstrating her take on Rule #50. She finds it most effective in making sure her pesky pet skunk doesn’t escape.” -Fiona.
[So I went and got you one of these. There’s lots more where this came from. Didja know Fall starts right now? (7:29pm PT in the USA.) Somethin’ called the Autumnal Equinox, like I know what that is. So…will you make me a big pile of these and then I can belly-flop into ‘em?]
[*Note: ROC #42: Ears that flop over a leetle beet are cute. -Ed.]
“Meet Zara, all the way from New Zealand. My brother sent me this photo of her snuggling down in a place where she is not allowed. Looks like she knows it, too.” -Colleen R.
(VERY Rare Rule #32 Cited Thusly: “If You’re Caught Doing Something Bad, It’s Cute.”
CutePorter Amy J. sent us this Prosh Pair O’Pups! “I would like to introduce Sir Chauncey Billups. He was born in April 2011 and a wonderful companion. Chauncey enjoys lounging, eating, and ear scratching.”
“He has a new girlfriend, Priscilla Presley. We adopted Priscilla during the worst storm in Michigan last winter.”
“She was originally found on the mean streets of Detroit when she was about 3 months old.”
“She enjoys Chauncey, bouncing like Tigger, running, and belly rubs.”
There’s a Rule in play with this one..but, er, we, can’t seem to think of it due to- er, well, yeah. “This is our 4.5-month-old puppy Luna, just after we brought her to the dog park for the very first time.” -Sarah C.
[*Disclosure- she did the headline too. -Ed.]
Get another Twin-Pak™ of Rules for you, care of Cuteporter Shannon V. She says, “We keep finding these little guys in our pool. #wheresyourmama.”
[*Note- Couldn’t we have a Rule like this: “If your head can auto-retract into your body, that’s Cute.” -FWIW, -Ed.]
Ever since we put up the photo of Lefty and suggested that our new Rule #95 should just be retired – ’cause he now owned it- we’ve had to (surprise, like this is something new) back pedal a bit on that blanket statement. Wallace was next to claim a shot at the throne.
And then..there’s Big D.
“This is Dexter, I noticed the recent side eye Hall of Fame pictures, and thought Dexter would be a contender. Not only do you get the Side-Eye, but also the sassy ear that gives him a Rhianna look. This was just after I got my new camera and he was not too pleased with how many pictures I was taking of him.” -Lori P.
[*Note: Also in effect: “Rule of Cuteness #42: Ears that flop over a leetle beet are cute.” -Ed.]
“I’m submitting this photo I took of a Hummingbird exhibiting Rule #38,” comments Cuteporter -Lise C. [*Note: “If you have a curved, plump belleh, it’s cute.” -Ed.] “Alas, I wasn’t allowed close enough to Snorgle it. H-birds have pretty good BEF*, too! We love C.O.!”
[*BEF = Beady Eye Factor. And trying to Snorgle a Supersonic Hummingbird, while truly admirable, seems hopeless. If you do, photos please. -Ed.]
