Animal Friends

It’s always said that dogs are man’s best friend. And while I whole-heartedly agree, this week, it seems that they are all-species’ best friend. First I came across Pumpkin the raccoon. Her owners found her as a little baby when she fell out of a tree. They kept her alive, and she bonded with their two rescue dogs. Now she thinks she’s part of the family, just like the other Royal Bahamian Potcake pups.

Then, I see Kumbali, the baby cheetah becoming new BFFL with Kago. Apparently large cats in captivity have problems with anxiety, and a little dog friend can help calm them down.

It’s just too much cute to handle!

Cube Dogs

I’ll just start this post off by saying that the Japanese really know where it’s AT when it comes to cute things. They brought us Hello Kitty and Maru. And now, ever the innovators, they are broadening their cute horizons to include animals of the canine variety.

It is now a common style for dog lovers to shave their furry friends into perfectly symmetrical little cubes. And the result? Well, it’s predictable adorable.

Baby Alpacas in Sweaters

One of the fun parts about winter in a big city is that all of the cute little dogs that people carry around in their purses get all decked out in cute little sweater outfits. But, if you thought that dogs in sweaters was the cutest thing you’d see this winter, you were wrong. During the bitter temperatures of that polar vortex the beginning of the month, an alpaca farm in Aiken, South Carolina noticed that their furry friends were looking a little cold – especially the babies. So, to solve the problem, they popped over to Goodwill and picked up a bunch of children’s sweaters, and slipped them right onto the little guys. They frolicked about with their mothers in camo, stripes, and polka dots, looking all sorts of adorable. Check out the full story (and more adorable pictures) here.

Slothville

When I was on vacation in Costa Rica, we saw a sloth from a distance in the rainforest, in a tree, with binoculars. And it was one of highlights of my trip. I love how slow t hey are, how adorable, and though I wouldn’t freak out quite as much as Kristen Bell, I would be pretty excited to meet one. If you’re a sloth lover like me, check out Slothville for a solid couple hours of video watching, funny meme, and cute picture gazing. You can even buy the book if you’re really hooked.

Adorable dogs of all breeds looking more stylish than most of the guys you meet in bars!
