If I HAVE to pick, it's the baking dog.

The Cynical Sailor said...

My favorite is the little dog who barked at the mailman. It's funny how the smallest dogs always think their bark is so ferocious :-) Have a wonderful weekend!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That dog can come bake at our house anytime.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Lexa, this is the third time I've tried to leave a comment. *smack forehead* Doncha just hate it when that happens (brain exploding). The thing to do next time is, to quickly step inside a walk-in freezer. You gotta get that human microprocessor cooled off quick enough or else...it'll pop. Then you have to clean up a mess like you know and then you have to replace it with a faster, more efficient flash storage to carry the load. But, it looks like you already had a spare on hand! You pulled together some excellent giggles today. I liked them all but my favorites are of the pup. I call small dogs ankle bitters because they yap and snap at your ankles but I'm certain if they can get to the jugular they will and that cat! Oh, I can imagine a cat asking its human pet to get it out of that ridiculous predicament with the clothes hanger. lol BTW, my CTST is now on Thursdays and if you want more laughs then you can always check out my Friday Sillies post.

JeffO said...

Exploded brain...I understand. Have a nice weekend!

Natalie Aguirre said...

I liked the Hogwarts one. All of them are so funny. Have a great weekend!

Patricia Lynne said...

Awwww, those are so cute. My favorites are the ones with the sad animals because I just want to cuddle them and make them happy.

Inge H. Borg said...

Lexa,
Thank you for featuring my FREE Shadow Love; perfect cover for today's Snow Day surprising the US South. Perfect story for winter survival, too.
But if your friends yearn for Heat, I hope they check out Khamsin (still only 99c).

I also answered a cat's call for "assistance," and adopted an adorable Maine Coon-mix redhead kitten that his humans had tossed out. Will have his story on my blog soon. I named him Opie, and he is already filling the hole Pasha left in my heart.

Julie Flanders said...

LOL I love them all but I think the cat just hanging is my fave. :D
Good luck with the fonts!!

H.R. Sinclair, Southpaw said...

Oh man, that last picture is so sad...poor owl.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

That cat with the hanger on him is exactly something our late Spunky would've done. That cat once crawled into a cracker box and got stuck. I helped him out - after I took a picture of course. LOL

Tamara Narayan said...

Love the animal memes, but must pick the cat in the hanger for the win. The Hogwarts reject is a close second. Good luck on the font issues.

L.G. Keltner said...

I liked that last one best. So cute and sad.

Good luck with the fonts!

Unknown said...

I luv the hanging cat!

Decadent Kane said...

The guinea pig- but i think I'm biased because my daughter has two of them and I could totally picture one of them doing this. LOL
Thank you for the smile.
Have a great Friday!

Lara Lacombe said...

The baking dog is awesome! But so is the guinea pig and the hangar cat. Hard to choose just one!

Have a good weekend!

Diane Weidenbenner said...

I'm trying to be more faithful in my posting for CTST. Thanks for not giving up on me! Hope you have a happy 2017. I appreciate the community that you've built around your blog hop. I love your funny animal memes, by the way. What a hoot! www.dianeweidenbenner.com

Lynda R Young said...

That last one is the cutest.
I can relate re fonts. Sending virtual hugs.

Sue Bursztynski said...

A delightful set of pics! The cat in the hanger and the owl that failed to get into Hogwarts are my favourites. I only hope the cat's human didn't put the hanger on just for the photo, though.

messymimi said...

Hope your brain recovers, and those pictures are the best!

Stephen Hayes said...

Love the despondent little owl who doesn't get to go to Hogwarts.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

My favorite has to be hanger cat/cat in need of assistance. The Hogwarts (rejected) owl is a classic I never tired of seeing...and pitying. I too would love to go to Hogwarts little owl, I feel your pain. Sorry about the negative brain blast and all the best with recovery and moving forward Lexa.

Deanie Humphrys-Dunne said...

The little gerbil in the wagon and the hogwarts are my favorites, but they're all adorable; decisions, decisions.
Have a great weekend.

Rhonda Albom said...

Cute animals. I like the cat looking for human help. Such a bewildered look.

Laura Clipson said...

Aww those pictures are so cute! I especially like the sad owl :)

Heather R. Holden said...

Hahaha, love those funnies! So adorable and hilarious all at the same time.

And sorry all this font stuff has become so frustrating for you. Good luck keeping your brain intact long enough to figure it all out!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

They're all priceless. I especially like the cat that needs human help. That's so true. They're independent little critters until they need you.

S.A. Larsenッ said...

Oh the whole invasion-of-the-font dilemma... Totally understand getting a headache over that. Favorite fur baby pic - I'll go with the first one.

DMS said...

They are all fun- but I love the baking dog one the most. I can just see that dog baking calmly. :)

Happy font picking~
~Jess

Patsy said...

Aaaw, they're cute.

mshatch said...

I'd have to choose the first one; that little dog looks so bummed.

T. Drecker said...

Love the animals--so cute! Hope your brain's back in motion soon.

Cathy Keaton said...

They are ALL cute! But, if I had to narrow it down, I'd say the lounging cat, the baking dog and the sad owl. Hogwarts.... That is just too cute.

I hope your brain feels better now that the animals have memed it!

cleemckenzie said...

I can't choose! They all made me laugh and feel good. I needed a good laugh after this week of non-stop storm and power outages. Thanks.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I like the cat watching the girls because my male sits like that. Or on his butt with his arms hanging at his side. It's hysterical.

T.F. Walsh said...

Love the 'Just hanging' cat.. haha such an awesome pic. Good luck with finding the perfect font for the cover... can't wait to see it.

D Biswas said...

I love the last one, reminds me of a little girl's expression when she's told she's not allowed to go for a night out :)

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Thanks for the smile. Hope the font problem resolves and that you are able to have a good week ahead.

Spacer Guy said...

Top cat got the right idea with his eyes glued to some feline babes no doubt.

J.H. Moncrieff said...

I love the guinea pig one, but then again, I love that song--and its parody.

That poor, sad little owl though!

Emilyann Girdner said...

Cute, I thought my fav was the cat with the hanger, but then the owl that didn't get picked for Hogwarts got me. Thank you for the laughs. =-). http://emilyanngirdner.com/blog/

Jenny Baranick said...

I wonder what it feels like to not be able to stop baking. I can't seem to start.

Leandra Wallace said...

That was a nice dose of cute for my Tuesday! And that dog can come bake for me anytime. =)
