Wow! You guys gave Mrs.Finch a supremely fuzzy welcome last week! As usual, I’m reminded of how wonderful and how difficult it is to be on the Snout Selection committee.

You know the drill...

Favourites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (Sorcia, EdieBealesCostume, KrabbyPaddy, mrsfinch), entirely on our own whimsy. WHIMSY. However, in the interest of GT 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 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 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, last week’s winners!! I went with the theme of Derpy-ness, because I’ve been derpy myself all damn week....

KKBama’s delightful Asher:

Periwinkle introduced us to Nacho Sanzhez (that name, Jesus take the wheel...)

Ihatepickingname’s Harry, derpily ignoring the perfectly good cat perch. OMG HARRY. It’s RIGHT NEXT TO YOU.

Kcunning’s shameless belly-rub hussy, Chloe:

Cat, do you even know you’re all looking like Le Chat Noir?! And you’re not even a black cat!

And, Sophia Bella derping around with Mr!

Finally, a tearful good-bye to Schnitzel (best weenie-dog name EVAR); we’re sorry for your loss, Tasteofthebitchpudding.

Wonderful week, all! It just gets harder and harder each week to pick. So keep the fur faces coming!!
