The Aliens Have Landed!

I just saw them, it was horrible! They came out of the water with these blade-like antennae on their backs, flappy orange arms, and they just kept staring at me with their one eye and making this creepy gurgling noise!

‘Tocktober is for the Dogs!

Dogs. They happen to be America’s most popular pet, and the American Humane Society has made October Adopt-A-Dog Month. We think that makes a lot of sense, because dogs happen to be ‘Tocktober’s most popular ‘tocks! So now it’s official, dog gone it!

“This is Kafka from Poland, my French bulldog laying on my mom’s lap. Love your website, I start my day with it.” -Anna.

“Too Late For A ‘Tocktober Submission?”

[Of course not! ‘Tock submissions welcome ’til October ‘Tocktober 31!]

“..because I thought you might like this shot of a donkey. The photo was taken by me at a park in Central Finland.” -Best regards, Päivi N.


Wildlife ‘Tocks On Parade

[Throughout ‘Tocktober, we’re going to showcase ‘Tocks from around the world. -Ed]

“Here are photos from our visit to South Africa, Botswana and Zambia during the summer of 2011. Rhinos and zebras were in Entabeni Reserve in South Africa. Leopard and elephant are from Okavango Delta in Botswana. Monkey is from Zambia- near Victoria Falls. Photos by my daughter Emma. Best, Catherine S.”






Bibi McStubbersons

“Hello Cute Overload: I know you have plenty of pics of Corgi Butts all lined up to be posted during ‘Tocktober, but I’d like to urge you to take a look at my Bibi. All these pics were taken by me, her mama, otherwise known as Bibimama, or legally, Dominique G. I sent a few shots for you to consider, but if you ask me she’s star material.”

We’re comfortable with that assessment.

G’Day! Have Some Wallaroo ‘Tocks, Mate!

[You want me to..turn around? OK, how’s THIS?]

“This is Rocko a male wallaroo, a smaller version of a kangaroo. He is a permanent resident at Fallin’ Pines Critter Rescue in Christmas, FL. Rocko and his other wallaroo friend, Ringo, have the run of the 4 acre property. I could not tell if Rocko was trying to scratch an itch or just showing me his good side in this picture.” -Susan G.


A-Tock-a-lypse NOW

“My pup Jax, just a day after we adopted him from the shelter.”


“He’s so happy to have a yard to play in!”
