Hello and happy Fur Face Friday in the middle of May already!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, and Leahaven), entirely on our own whimsy. WHIMSY. However, in the interest of solidarity, we try to select one dog picture and one cat picture (minimum!) each week. Other pets will also, of course, be considered. We love all your rats, bunnies, ferrets and other furry, feathery & finny pals. WE WILL NEVER DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CUTE. As always, we’re happy to dismiss any pictures if you decide you want them taken down at some point.
If you don’t have a pet of your own to feature this week, I highly recommend featuring and linking to any cuties who are available for adoption and looking for a home on Petfinder or any other shelter or rescue site. If you’re like me, you probably know people doing some good rescue/foster/support work in your area, so please feel free to share the love and the fluff from your hometown.
In that sharing spirit, if you don’t have a pet but want to participate, drop off your best Internet find of an animal .gif or meme or tweet in the comments. The more animal lovers, the merrier :) Speaking of sharing, feel free to share these posts anywhere in the Kinja-verse, because it has been scientifically documented that looking at pictures of cute animals reduces stress.
Lots of people’ve been dressing down and going casual for the homeside life, but last week’s animals seemed good and ready to amuse us with their modeling skills. Let’s see some of that art in motion.
Dogsatemypants sat for some artistic re-creative doggos. Here we see the Creation of Waggin’.
Krispy Porkchops’ Mocha worked the wrapped look.
Chuckles’ Cassie found her light...
...and his friends’ chickens dazzled in color.
Kiltedpadre’s Ruby went for the wistful look.
Andy “Cough, Cough” M-S found what’s good for the goose is avoiding the paparazzi.
CalzoneGolem’s Jerrold was a sight to behold.
PumpkinSpies’ Boggs had a very sultry birthday.
And Best Coast’s Alice took some time to
smell er, eat the flowers and look fabulous doing it.
Here are the sad bits – commiseration and condolences and much loving goodbyes to these Very Good Dogs.
ClassicDatsunDebate’s dapper Winston has gone to that furry fashion show over the bridge.
And Lexador lost good old Eny last week. She was a wise and kindhearted pillar of the fostering community and a bright light of doghood - we are sorry to see her go.
What about your fur faces? Have they been sources of inspiration for you this week?
