    Does Samwise also affect that deer/cat-in-the-headlights look?

    I still haven’t gotten my God damned calendar yet. Shit. I sent my check in. What’s the fucking hold up here?

  8. 8

    Also, too, this calendar sucks. I told you you should have used the printer I suggested in Maine. It’s only 800 miles from where you live. Shit. Also, too, the formatting sucks.

    @Miss Bianca: his pupils are dilated when he does it.

    And why isn’t my dog in this calendar? I know I never sent in any pictures, but still. Shit. Worst. Calendar. Ever.

    Fantastic! I didn’t order one (because I thought my wife already had our calendar for the year), but it turned out we needed one. These look fantastic.

    @Smedley Darlington Prunebanks (formerly Mumphrey, et al.): This is how you get banned. :)

    Awesome. Congratulations, Cole.

    That large photo of the gorgeous gray kitty on the front is basically me, every day since Trump was elected.

    Cockers in the news–“Spencer” freed after three days stuck in a UK drainpipe. Could totally envision mine doing exactly the same thing–critter goes into a pipe, I’m following it!

    That looks a large dog in front of a GIANT dog.

    I wonder if the German word for drainpipe is ‘dachs’?

    Yutsano says:

    @catclub: “Dachs” means badger in German. Gives one a new perspective on these little ankle biters eh?

    @Roger Moore: Beat ya by that much!

  26. 26
    Roger Moore says:

    “Dachs” is German for badger. That’s right, dachshunds were bred to hunt badgers by chasing them down their burrows.

    Chet is going to be furious that not only didn’t he make the cover, let alone his hoomin didn’t care enough to send in a pic.

    Is that Samwise on the cover? Looks wonderful.

    So it seems Trump wants a parade

    Seriously, we are turning into a banana republic or Russia with shows of military strength.. never mind this shit is going to cost us millions of tax payer dollars. He is going to bankrupt us all, morally and fiscally while GOP merrily plays their violins.

    Lovey is adorable but Koda stole my heart all those years ago when she went to live with you.

    @Comrade Colette Collaboratrice:

    Is that your kitten on the cover? I haz kitten envy.

    @Roger Moore:

    When I was a kid we had a Saint Bernard and a miniature Dachshund. Guess who ruled the roost? Then we got adopted a stray who looked just like Benji and was tri-lingual. He was capable of amazing physical feats and yet the Dachsund was still the boss dog.

    I needed a picture for my university online newsletter, and my husband took a picture of me in my office. Only later did I realize that there’s an old Balloon Juice calendar on the shelf behind me in the picture. A kind of “green balloons” signal to the cognoscenti, totally unintentional.

    @cain: Our Caligula needs constant massaging of his bloated, fragile ego. I and most other veterans are disgusted to see this Orange Turd and draft dodger saluting and being saluted.

    @MomSense: I don’t think I submitted a picture this year, and I’m fairly certain I don’t own anything with that pattern on it, so if it is Samwise…

    @Major Major Major Major:

    What if he has a secret life you don’t know about?

    @MomSense: He doesn’t even go outside, but I guess the building manager could be borrowing him.

    Grey kitty on the front is from Oakland…her name is Geneva and this is her look after watching/reading Anything about Trumphole. (Kitten in the upper corner is Frieda).

  52. 52

    @BeezusQ: how old is Geneva? Maybe they’re related.

  53. 53

    @Major Major Major Major: I should note that this would be the third cat I’ve seen that looked just like Samwise, all in the Bay Area (unless Geneva used to live by Valencia and Market and is the same cat).

    I should have bought a calendar, just for the cover alone.

    Could someone post the info again for the animal shelter this supports?

    My relatives keep me more than supplied with calendars, but I’m up for sending a few coins in their direction.

    I hope this calendar has ferrets because someone in another thread said they like ferrets.

    BeezusQ says:

    @Major Major Major Major: She is probably just over a year old…if that. From the shelter.
