Happy Fur Face Friday everyone! Hopefully, you have your shopping done because the clock is ticking away, and hopefully your lovely little furry pals are getting something as well because they’ve been very good this year (some more than others). Anyone get any pet specific gifts this year or wait for the post-holiday discounts? I know Target always has doggy Santa costumes in their bargain aisles after the holidays are over. And while you’re out and about, don’t forget about our furry pals at the animal shelters!

You know how it goes: Favorites are chosen by me alone, entirely on my own whim. However, in the interest of GT solidarity, I select one dog picture and one cat picture (minimum!) each week. Other pets will also, of course, be considered. I love all your rats, bunnies, ferrets and other furry pals. I WILL NEVER DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CUTE. As always, I am 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 any shelter or rescue site. I know I’m not the only one lurking Petfinder!


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 in the comments. The more animal lovers, the merrier.

And now the winners!

Lisa already knows she’s a good dog because she has a vest to prove it, so she is asking Santa for extra treats!

Christmas Citty’s best trick so far seems to be keeping the lights from tangling.

So much snow for laser dog!

Zap’s brother’s cat picked up a side gig this year.

So did Mr. Sparkles.

Cuddle buddy’s providing all of the stocking stuffers.

And Chevy the rein-dog is in charge of the sleigh.

I want to put one of BeakerC’s baby bunnies on my wishlist. I’d carry it around in my shirt pocket all day.

These sweet faces sure do know how to get into the festive mood, and there are so many more to see in last week’s post! And as a special treat, here are some choice quotes about fur faces from our friends over at Persephone.

Let’s keep the party going, show off those fur faces!
