Dog of the Day: Working Pug

Someone had a long day at work.

Old Pug In Red Bandana

This pup is a long-time Airbnb pup, whom I have seen quite a number of times.

He (she?) always looks totally exhausted. Always perks up for petting though.

Caturday Supplement: Princess Evie the Master Blepper

Evie is one of Autumn’s frequent kitty-sitting charges. I just got to spend the day watching the Puppy Bowl with her, and she is the sweetest thing EVER! She sat in my lap through the whole thing and just purred and purred and purred.

Autumn sleeps over there fairly frequently, and Evie sleeps on top of her. And purrs. Constantly.

Black Cat With Gold Eyes

She pretty much let me do anything. I held her upside down, I held her while she had her claws clipped… she just mellowed out.

Evie’s an indoor-outdoor cat. She’s getting older so she’s more into hanging out inside now.

Look at those eyes!

GREAT PUPPY FIGHT OF 2018!!

You might remember Panko. If you don’t, it is probably because you were stunned into amnesia by cuteness. Well, just as I walked out of the door for lunch at work on Thursday, Panko was walking through the atrium. And just as I was mid-squeal, Panko met Luke, the 5-month-old German shepherd/husky/Lab mix. And my day, and quite possibly my entire month, was made.

Too many pictures for captions and hovertext. So much cute.

Incidentally, the pictures that look like Luke has Panko’s entire head in his mouth? Yeah, that’s because he does have her entire head in his mouth.

The two of them were enjoying the sunshine.

Soon she’s going to get to run around on a leash a little more.

Dog of the Day: Skyler the Shy Little Husky Puppy

Skyler (5 months old in these pictures) was utterly adorable, but at least at the time I took these pictures she was preeeeetty skittish about the whole ‘human beings that are not my mom’ thing.

No captions and no hovertext, since all of the hovertext would be something like ‘Oh my Dog keep away from me you’re scary!’ anyway.

Dog of the Day: Reilly the Lakeland Terrier Puppy

Reilly is a new breed for us, and a pretty unusual one in general: a Lakeland terrier. In the pictures he was 5 months old, and a typically curious pup.

It was next to impossible to get him to sit, let alone stay seated.

Cream Lakeland Terrier Puppy Howling

He had a bit of the howling gene, too. Awooo!

This was a much more typical posture… trying very had to lick me.

Dog of the Day: Dave the Pembroke Welsh Corgi

This is the first Dave we’ve had on the blog, and guess what: he’s a she! I didn’t get an explanation of the name, I was too busy goggling at the one-year-old cuteness of it all.

Tricolor Pembroke Welsh Corgi

I ran into her right outside the Macy’s puppy window display.

Dave, like all corgis, is a kid magnet.

Unlike in the hovertext, Dave was actually quite eager to meet all of them.

Sunday Switchup: Ha, Yes!

Little history lesson: so it turns out that in 1906 there was this little shake-up in the City by the Bay. And they discovered that it was quite difficult to navigate through the streets of a completely demolished city by the street signs (which had mostly fallen down) and the landmarks (which had mostly burnt down, fallen over, and/or sank into the swamp). So when they rebuilt, they started engraving the names of every street on its every corner.

Sometimes you find unexpectedly funny ones. There are the occasional typo. And sometimes Hayes Street seems to become a bit of a smartass.

Dog of the Day: Panko the Teensy Little Shiba Inu Puppy

Panko is 3 months old, and this was her first day at work! And this was the closest thing I got to a good picture, because Panko was fascinated with all the smells. She only took time off from sniffing for treats and for getting belly rubs.

Look at that floof. That is some of the highest-quality floof I have ever seen.

Triple Dog Day: Molly, Loki, and Harley (Harlequin) the Siberian Huskies

Some of the pups from yesterday’s dog convention. Molly is the white one, and Loki and Harley are the other two, who we’ve seen before. (Loki is the one with one brown eye.)

No hovertext, no captions, just a bunch of cute pictures.
