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.

Dog of the Day: Kira the Greyhound

Kira has a hekkuva boopable snoot!

Kira is definitely greying, but she’s only 6. I think it makes her look elegant.

Except when she does this.

Dog of the Day: Kenzie the Irish Terrier

I’ve only had a couple of Irish terriers on here before. Kenzie is a lovely example of the breed.

It’s funny how many Irish dogs are… gingers.

Caturday Supplement: Clara the ‘Nava Masquerade’ Siberian Cat

Clara (6 months old) is the first airbnb kitten I have ever had the pleasure of running across. Her dad brought her in to work at airbnb. She was maybe a bit hesitant, but not too shy. This was the first time I saw her, and every time someone came by she was happy to let them pet her. The second time I came by, she was wandering around… on-leash, of course.

She is of the breed Siberian cat, apparently ‘Nava Masquerade’ subtype. And she has an adorable instagram page.

I only wish my ear hair were that attractive. Since it’s close to that long.

That ‘Masquerade’ is gorgeous too.

Dog of the Day: Myles the Baby Fruit Bat Er I Mean Chihuahua Yorkie Mix

Myles (girl, 8) is a pup from work that I’ve known for a beeeellion years (or at least two) now, and who I won’t be seeing nearly as often now. Why? Because I’m leaving Hipmunk, and will be working at Automatic¬†soon!

I will have to go back and visit Myles occasionally though, because she is a friend and I do not abandon friends.

You can see why I call him my baby bat.

Dog of the Day: Copper the Shih Tzu Puppy

Copper appears to be a ridiculously adorable four-month-old front half of a puppy.

I wonder what the name of his back half is?

Dog of the Day: [James] Joyce the Irish Wolfhound

I ran into James Joyce (3, Joyce to his friends) earlier this year, but I just saw him again and I really liked this picture, so you get to see him again too.

So glamorous… fur blowing in the wind…

Dog of the Day: Hunter the Shiba Inu

Hunter (7) was clearly a mean, nasty, vicious guard dog. You can see it in the firm set of his jaw, his squinty glare, his alert ears…

Edit: God I’m horrible. Somehow I forgot to push publish AGAIN.

…that adorable curly tail…

Hunter was one of my favorite kinds of dogs. The kind where his folks say ‘Oh he’s not very friendly, he… oh… he likes you!’
