Dog of the Day: Lucy the Australian Cattle Dog Mix

So last weekend I dog-and-cat-sat for an adorable pair. This is one half of the two: an adorable cattle dog mix named Lucy.

She was so super-cute, all waving at me.

Even if she did steal an entire bag of treats before I got there and eat them, and then spend most of the day with a tummy-ache.

I took her out for a walk. She took me straight to where her dad works, probably in the hopes he could make her feel better. When she couldn’t get in, she tried to take me to where her mom works.

Her nose was warm and dry for a while. I think it was just the tummy troubles.

Don’t worry, I didn’t leave the blanket on for long.

Dog of the Day: Crazy Samoyed

I think we’re getting close to the end of my good CorgiCon corgi pictures. And after all, I don’t want to turn my blog into ‘the corgis (and occasionally other dogs) of San Francisco’, so that’s probably all to the good. But there weren’t just corgis on that beach that day.

I think CorgiCon might have had a minimum goofiness entrance requirement.

Dog of the Day: Graceful Swimmer

There are few things as graceful as a corgi in the water. (Incidentally, if you’re seeing this on Facebook, it’s well worth clicking through to see the other pictures.)

It still looks impressive, even when you know the water’s only a few inches deep.

Well… some times more than other times.

Magnificent.

Dog of the Day: Corgi Border Collie Mix

This could actually be a full corgi, albeitĀ an unusual one. The thing that makes me think it’s a mix is the stare.

Dangerously adorable. Dangerously intelligent. A frightening combination.

Caturday Supplement: Little Black Kitten OF DOOM

So I dog-and-cat-sat today, for a totally adorable pair of rambunctious animals named Lucy and Wheezy. I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait a little while for pictures of the two, for terribly technical reasons (aka ‘I am too lazy to download, categorize, and edit the pictures from my phone tonight’) but you’ll see them soon. In the mean time, here is an adorable kitten I ran into at the SPCA on my last visit.

She watched me through the window for a while, but when it became obvious I couldn’t pet her or play with her…

…she just put her head down and went straight to sleep.

Double Corgi Day: THE BATTLE FOR THE CUTEST!

Two corgis, in a battle to the slight-inconvenience-or-mom-says-we-have-to-stop, for the title of CUTEST CORGI OF CORGI-CON!

They were having a BLAST. Pretty sure they were family.

Dog of the Day: Pembroke Welsh Corgi Puppy And Her Belly

Is there anything cuter than a boy, his corgi, and her belly?

I feel like I should make this a regular thing: puppybelly-Thursday.

Dog of the Day: Particolor Corgi

Has anyone ever seen a corgi with this color combination before? Maybe a mix?

A sizable percentage of the sand on that beach is now stuck firmly to that pup’s nose.

Sunday Switchup: Gloster Canary

This bird has the most ridiculous haircut that anyone has had since the late 1960s. Except perhaps Lady Gaga.

I also love his expression. “Aww yeah, baby!”

Caturday Supplement: Dilute Tortoiseshell Tabby Cat

It took me around five minutes of googling to figure out what coloration is. I could have just said ‘gorgeous’ and been just as accurate, though.

I was outside the SPCA, peering in windows, and this kitty saw me and just ran right over to the window.

She booped her nose against the window several times, but I didn’t get any pictures.

Amazing the difference in eye color between the last two pics.
