Summer is making me derpy as all get-out, y’all. The heat, the weirdness of summer classes, plus a new trend of students bursting into my classroom in search of a Pokemon which apparently can only be accessed next to my blackboard. So I figured we’d celebrate the derp with Fur Faces!

In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites 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 on 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.

Now last week’s winners of Derpitude!!

And finally, to combat the Derpiness, this is Shane (aka “The Old Gent”), courtesy of Irrevelations. Can’t you picture him telling Pokemon-hunting teens to get off his lawn?

Special Tribute to Danky’s Stella — we’re so sorry for your loss. She was gorgeous.

It was seriously nigh on impossible to select just a few of your pics, GT. Go look at all of the sweet fur faces from last week! And then, keep ‘em coming!

Show me your fur faces, GT!!
