Monica A. tells us “This is my brother’s dog, Kaka, who was named that because he looked like a little brown poop when he was little.” Oh. That explains it. (And let’s not forget Rule of Cuteness #99: Peeping tongues are cute.)
One of the (IMO) truly great things about Cute Overload is that we get email images from all over the world. (Hmmm..nothing from Bratislava yet.) This just arrived from The Big G c/o Chris B.
The email is unedited except we deleted the home phone number..and we THINK the kitteh’s name is Samba..don’t we?
“Hello, I’m Samba! Samba came to the 2014 World Cup to us. Since it is our good luck charm. Gesendet von Zuhause!” -Chris B. 2014/GER. PS- You are so wunderfull!!!!”
[Just TRY to pry my stuffie loose. But I might let you play with it if you ask nicely!]
“Gabby the German Shepherd puppy arrived at her new home last week!” -Marcie H. [We’ve also got Rule #42: Ears that flop over a leetle beet are cute.’ -Ed.]
Here at Cute Overload, we pride ourselves in bringing you, our dear readers, a wide variety of The QTE. Puppehs and Kittehs are fantastic, of course- but sometimes we like to toss ya a curveball.
LIKE PYGMY SEAHORSES*!!!!! GAAAAAAAAA!!!!
(*Rule of Cuteness #45: Any animal with the word “Pygmy” in it is Cute.)
Cuteporter Susan H. serves up a ROC (Rules of Cuteness) Combo Platter! “Greetings! We made a pilgrimage to the Cute Overload motherland last weekend and were delighted to find both Turtle ‘Tocks AND Bonus Haunch Splayage at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park! Hope it’s not to late for him to be included in ‘Tocktober!” [Nope! -Ed.]
Since there are a small number of the Rules of Cuteness- and there are an infinite number of Cute Possibilities, logic dictates that it’s very rare you will see more than one Rule per photo.
However, Penny-Penny-Poo-Poo (honest) proves there is an exception (or three) to every Rule.
“Here is a ‘Tocktober picture of my Chiweenie Bebeh, Penelope Ann Garcia, or, as I call her, Penny-Penny-Poo-Poo. Not only is she showing her ‘Tocks, she’s rocking Rule #20 (Showing your paw pads is Cute,) #50 (If your paws fold over one another, that’s Cute), and a little #38 (If you have a curved, plump belleh, it’s Cute.) I hope she’s Cute enough to make the cut!” -Kelly P., Smackover, Arkansas.
As we roll into the second half of ‘Tocktober, we get this big helping of ‘Tocks & Beans, c/o Rebecca B. “Here are some Doxie ‘Tocks for ‘Tocktober! Walker the Dapple Dachshund is splayed on the carpet showing off his ‘Tocks, while Penny the black and tan gives us some Upside-Down ‘Tock Action. Walker is big, about 14 pounds, while Penny has not quite hit 8 pounds.”
(“P.S.- I’m trying to get some Side-By-Side Nose Action for Nosevember, but no go so far.”)
