Some of our local pack. (Or would it be ‘pride’?)
I really wonder what these guys are saying when they’re ‘yelling’ like this.
Whatever it is, it’s very contentious.
A lot of them have lots of scars. It’s a tough place under the sea, sometimes, I guess.
More SPCA pictures. So cute!
Is the one in front smiling, or is it just me?
Chaopi is nearly sixteen years old! And is awesome. I’ve run into him a few times, including a couple of days ago, and he’s still having a blast.
I hope I’m half as happy when I’m that old, relatively speaking. (I know I won’t be one tenth as fluffy, alas.)
That is a smile, right there. His habitual expression.
He still loves to romp around in the freshly-cut grass, too.
A double doodle for your daily delectation! Apparently that’s what you get when you breed a Labradoodle and a goldendoodle. Who knew?
What you also get, in this case, is a 4.5 month old totally pooped puppy who is rather bigger than initial estimates led her owner to believe.
She is not going to be able to do that for much longer.
Not the happiest puppy expression. I think she’d rather have just lay down and taken a two hour nap right there.
I don’t know how I sat on Lola’s pictures for this long (a month and a half) without posting them. I think you’ll agree that she is one of the most photogenic dogs I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet. And all this at only seven months!
Poses she has down pat already: noble dog…
…the canine grin…
…the over-the-shoulder follow-me look…
…the ‘SIRIUS’ expression…
…the dreaded ‘dognose all up in your bidnezz’ shot…
…and sliiiightly manic.
These two were obviously the best of friends.
They were standing like this for several minutes. I get the feeling it’s a common occurrence.
They’re the perfect sizes for it.
He looks very serious, doesn’t he?

Apparently octopuses are really smart and surprisingly affectionate.
Apparently being an octopus handler is a high-stress job, because you get really attached to your subject, but they only live two years at most.
Some examples of octopus smartness in this article. Pretty amazing.
SPCA kittens! Quick, go adopt one before they’re all gone!
I can’t decide what’s cuter: the little pink nose or the little grey nose.
I ran into Nina (6 years old) right near the Chestnut Street Apple Store, but this was a few weeks ago so I’m pretty sure they weren’t in line for the new Apple Watch or whatever you call it. Still, you never can tell.
I. Love. Berners.
Look at that concentrated happy.
Not quite clear on what I did, but that’s quite an expression.
Even when they’re not looking happy they are still adorable. And hilarious.
Frankie! Six months old, and already the LONGEST EARS IN THE CITY!
I need to do more videos. Watching this dog’s ears flop around is a potent antidepressant.
If you look closely you can catch a glimpse of spotty puppy belly.
Three quarters of my pictures of Frankie were of him scratching his ear. I think he may have been hinting at something. “PET ME HERE!”
