First up, your punny pet names are inspired by this slideshow (oh… hello there, Slide 15): Cullen Bones, Nathan Blue Jaydrian, and Pom Daley. (Seriously, I want to meet a Pomeranian named Pom Daley. It’s my new dream.)
Speaking of punny pet names, this week I learned that Prince Harry owns a racehorse named Usain Colt. How is it possible that I never came up with that one on my own? (Bonus link: Animals with misleading names.)
Emmylou Harris rocks. Check out her new project, Woofstock.
The timing couldn’t be better for me, actually. This weekend, I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with a fantastic Pit Bull in need of a home, and I’m delighted to introduce her to you today. Continue reading →
The photography of K and her furry brother R takes my breath away on a regular basis. It’s a constant reminder to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds me.
K has been diagnosed with cancer (osteosarcoma in one of her front legs) and will be undergoing another round of chemo next week. Today, many pet bloggers are joining together to send support and encouragement to K and KB during this time. I’m joining in to send lots of hugs their way.
I also thought I’d send a few smiles their way, with a special Valentine’s Day edition of No Frown Friday, dedicated to K and KB. Enjoy these links from the heart, after the jump:
It wouldn’t be a pseudo No Frown Friday without a punny name. We’ll go with Saint Howlentine.
Another topic that makes frequent appearances? Space. So, without further ado, I give you this week’s video: Corgis… in… space!
(If you can’t get enough space, go watch Nyan Cat too. Someone should come up with Nyan Gosling Cat. Get on it, Internet.)
That concludes your regularly scheduled linkage. Before I go, you should know that a pretty cool event is going on in blogland this weekend – it’s a Blogpocalypse! A group of wonderful bloggers will be participating in a blogathon to raise support for various causes. I hope you’ll check them out. (If you do, you might even see a guest post from me over at My Brown Newfies!)
I’ve got lots of linky goodness for you today. Before we get silly, however, I have some cool information to share with you in honor of Pit Bull Awareness Day, which just so happens to be tomorrow.
Our pals over at love and a six-foot leash have put together a special adoption event with the Montgomery County Humane Society. For a select group of lovable wonderbulls known as Little Zee’s Fabulous Four, all adoption fees will be sponsored. Once a dog in the Fabulous Four is adopted, a new one will take his or her place on the list.
If you’re in the DC area, check out the details on how you can bring one of these adorable pups home. (Even if you’re not looking for another dog right now or aren’t in DC, you can still help by spreading the word!) For bonus points, head over to Peaceful dog, where a donation will be made to the Washington Humane Society for each comment. Pretty cool, huh?
On a related note, I saw the sign below one day, and it was the highlight of my week. I’m sure the people who saw me taking this photo thought I was nuts – however, anyone who gets the reference below scores instant awesome points. (I’m beginning to think I need to join Lionel Richie Fans Anonymous. Their motto? “Hello… is it therapy you’re looking for?”)
Also… I think this might be the best costume ever (although I doubt it’d translate into a pet costume).

I wish I’d read this article about pumpkin carving tips before I tried to carve mine last weekend. Nonetheless, maybe it’ll help you in your carving endeavors. (Are you a pumpkin carving savant? Then you might want to enter this contest.)
This photo looks like it came from some sort of horror movie.
The video below, however, looks like it came from the best movie ever.
It’s like a remake of 8 Seconds only much more fun and without Dylan McKay.
Oh, and I know it’s No Frown Friday, but I want to keep you posted on what’s up with us today. Bella had to go in for surgery to have a lump removed this morning, and I’ll be picking her up this evening if all goes well. That being said, we’d appreciate any healing vibes you could send her way.
I’m hoping that it’ll turn out to be nothing, and that the worst part of the whole ordeal will be her displeasure regarding the cone of shame. (At least we don’t have a doggie door, I suppose…)
