Dog of the Day: Gus the Basset Hound Mix

Well, today was… intense. I’m completely exhausted. So have a low-effort no-hovertext, no-caption post of Gus. Gus is 6 and my notes say he is a ‘Basset hound gas mix’. I… have no idea what that means. Guesses?

Caturday Supplement: Tuxedo Kitty

Another of Autumn’s fine furry friends.

Tuxedo Cat Sticking Out A Little Bit Of Tongue

A cat with its eyes dilated like that is feeling comfortable and friendly and very interested in being petted.

Dog of the Day: White Shepherd Mix

Another SPCA dog. This one was tucked in a corner with a sign that said ‘Please don’t look straight at me, I’m shy!’ I am not sure ‘shy’ is exactly the right word. (They also claimed that he barked a lot. Well, not when I was there!)

White Shepherd Mix Looking Into Camera

So here’s my secret: I stood next to the window without making eye contact for maybe… two minutes. After that, he was totally fine with everything. A little patience goes a long way.

Double Dog Day: Boston Terrier Mix Puppies

Ran into these two at the SPCA. I bet they weren’t there for very long at all, though.

Edit: What was I thinking? Boston terrier, not French bulldog!

Could be mixed with pit bull, maybe?

Dog of the Day: Lexie the Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Sometimes I think corgis like Lexie (female, 6) know how to look maximally ridiculous, and do so on purpose.

Lexi is certainly a pro at the ‘wharrgrbl’ face.

Sunday Switchup: Hallowiener!

Someone has a punny sense of humor.

I especially love the ‘bone ears’.

Caturday Supplement: Tr(u/e)e Love

Autumn took this one. Someone is very fond of her tree!

Marmalade Tiger Tabby Hugging A Cat Tree

I can’t quite imagine how she ended up like this. The toy isn’t dangling or anything. How did she bat it around to the other side of the pole from her?

Dog of the Day: Laica the Belgian Malinois Mix

Laica is six years old, but new to the family: she had just been adopted less than five weeks before this picture was taken. When she was adopted, she was skittish and skinny and stayed far away from strangers. When I took these pictures it was next to impossible to get a good one because she kept trying to crawl into my lap or lick the camera or run circles around her dad and me. She was just the happiest thing ever.

Edit: Oops! Malinois, not Tervuren.

It didn’t help that I was taking them inside, without enough light. All but this one were blurry.

Dog of the Day: Scone the Papillon Dachshund Mix

Scone (5, boy) is just about the best laptop-lapdog ever.

Also that is just about the perfect name.

Reminds me a lot of Watson.

Dog of the Day: Frita the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Puppy

Frita is only six months old. Hard to believe… I think she’s gonna be a pretty big corg!

Tricolor Pembroke Welsh Corgi

I kept hearing ‘Frito’ when I asked for her name. In my defense, a LOT of corgis are named after food. And Frito would be an awesome corgi name.
