So, what should I watch to get into the holiday spirit this weekend? (Animal Planet totally stole that “pup culture” thing from this blog, right? I kid, I kid… although perhaps they should have hired me as a consultant. I could have provided some high quality puns. For example, they went with Fluffy Phelps, but I would have argued for Michael Whelps. Nailed it.)
As I recently mentioned, I’m well behind on my monthly roundups. However, let’s just consider this belated October installment an early Christmas gift. (By that logic, I’m actually ahead of the game.)
Anyway, I believe that Buddy the Elf would totally support me sharing these posts guaranteed to make you smile. Enjoy. If you need me, I’ll be enjoying selections from the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. Continue reading →
Your punny pet names: Frank Catra and Ebefleazer Scrooge.
I’m in the process of creating my holiday card this year – wrangling two dogs is much more difficult than one! This year, the pups will be rocking some sweaters, so stay tuned for the final card as well as some outtakes. Until then, enjoy these penguins, cats, and dogs wearing sweaters.
Have you decorated yet? We haven’t put up our tree yet – I wonder what Tavish will think of his first Christmas with us. Maybe he will take a hint from Bo.
Ah, the holidays. Although I love the holidays, I don’t like snow. Watching this adorable guy makes me hate it just a little less, however.
I have some fun holiday news for you – starting tomorrow, you’ll have the chance to win some great prizes. It’s the Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers, and I’m thrilled to be joining Kol’s Notes for such a cool event.
Given that I was kind of on a penguin kick today, this video seemed the perfect choice:
Can you believe it will be December tomorrow? Time flies when you’re making puns!
Finally, I’m also a sucker for a good game of tug. This one’s pretty fun.
I chose today’s featured video in large part due to the commenter who referred to them as Rovermeo & Gentooliet. (Also, due to the commenter who made up a punny song about it.) I’m not going to lie, I’m somewhat confused as to how this scene occurred and I’m not about to suggest these two actually get to hang out, but still…
I’m in a penguin mood today. It happens from time to time. Guess I just can’t resist a bird that comes equipped with built-in formal wear. (Wouldn’t a penguin make a great prom date?) Anyway, on to the links!
First up, the traditional sharing of a punny name. Today, I give you: Penguin Stefani. (Bonus: Penguinona Ryder. See #2.)
Also, I have decided I want to remake Heathers using an all-bird cast. The Heathers will be played by penguins (including renowned feathered actress Shannen Do-birdy). I’ll be calling it Feathers. Obviously.
It’s so… hot. So very, very hot. For that reason, today’s No Frown Friday is all about being cool. You know what’s cool? Penguins. Without further ado, I turn this No Frown Friday over to our feathered brethren:
We won’t forgo the punny pet names, even though penguins aren’t really pets. You could always use these names for that stuffed penguin I know you sleep with at night: Feathers Locklear, Pengwynneth Paltrow, and Flipper Gore.
Do you have World Cup fever? (I hear they have doctors for that.) If so, perhaps you should watch this video of penguins playing soccer. Keep in mind, I use the term “playing” very loosely.
I don’t know what these two penguins are talking about, but I want in on the conversation.
This baby penguin on a scale is what led a friend to coin “cute-o-meter” – terminology I then appropriated for this blog. Accordingly, what you will see at that link will send your cute-o-meter off the charts. Seriously. You’ll probably have to take it into the shop.
Finally, I leave you with a video of baby penguins learning to swim.
