Hello, and welcome to another installment of Fur Face Friday! I’m Chuckles, your host for the week. The last time I did one of these, it was in the dog days of Summer, but now Autumn has arrived and brought some cooler weather with it (at least here in Pennsylvania). Hopefully we start to see some pictures of your dogs and cats playing in leaf piles soon!
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Xyl0c41n3, Chuckles, CBG, k2b, and Hannibal), 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. So gather up your endorphins and prepare to squee as the curtain rises on our lovable talents!
Hannibal did a terrific job hosting last week’s post. It was really difficult narrowing it down and not choosing every single pic to feature this week. Thanks for making my job so hard! Here are a few of the great fur faces:
Kiltedpadre’s Edgar was looking rather dapper in a bow-tie, in an effort to outshine his sibling Pitch, who was featured last week:
Is Gina-Bina’s Cosmo a menace to society, or is he just getting ready for the Major League Baseball playoffs to start? Here he is in his catcher’s mask:
PumpkinSpies’ Mr. Toomey has things to say, and you’d better listen:
YoucancallmeAL’s Otis tried to enjoy the last of the warm weather before Autumn arrived. I think he might need some sunglasses:
Gretchen Says this is not my president’s Nikki knows how to relax. There’s nothing like a good nap, but it’s important to always stretch properly before attempting one:
Dr. Zoidberg’s doggo is rather photogenic, and she likes to show off her toe beans. Those hind legs look so long that she might be part kangaroo:
Natface: Career-Obsessed Banshee’s cat Mortimer is rather fond of his blanket fort. Permission to enter Fort Mort?
Lexador’s dog saw an opportunity to lay on multiple dog beds at once, so they took it:
Farscythe’s Chewy was late to the party, but still wanted to say hi to everyone!
Dr. Sattler’s beautiful greyhound Liz shows just the right amount of enthusiasm when the doorbell rings:
Bio is fostering a mouse in Ontario and he’s super cute. Hopefully he finds a good forever home, but in the meantime he gets to hangout with Bio!
Lastly, we hope that Ad Infinitum’s dog Buster had a very happy name day! Here he is enjoying some sunshine:
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! Congrats to all of the chosen fur faces, and thank you to everyone who contributes and makes our job so difficult! Now get out there and show us your fur faces!!!
