It’s Day 10 of my 12 Days of Cuteness – a celebration of pet cuteness over the holidays.

I’m presenting photos of all the anipals and messages from them or their persons over the 12 days of Christmas. Check out the official gallery of cuteness right now.



“So, my human buds named me Oreo. I’m exactly two and a half years old and, just like yourself, I am a Shih Tzu.”

Pepe & Tilly


“We are Papillons and eight years old. We are from Australia.

Tilly: We call Tilly silly Tilly because when you sit down, no matter how many times you take her off, she will never NOT sit on your lap!

And Pepe: He loves to chase all the dogs at the park but then when he falls over he remembers he is on a lead!”

Phoenix & Mojo


“Mojo is a  Pomchi (Pomeranian / Chihuahua). He’s four years old and full of confidence. This is one small dog who doesn’t suffer from ‘small dog syndrome.’  He adores Phoenix (Boxer) but he’s a little rough with her. Phoenix (2) is very sweet and happy to have such a tough little boyfriend to protect her at the dog park. Phoenix is an ugly beauty and she knows it. She loves staring at herself in the mirror and enjoys television shows with dogs in them.”

Pippa & Vinnie


Vinnie (white) and Pippa (dark) are from Moscow, Russia. Their person has a fabulous photo stream on Flickr. If you love Chihuahuas you’ll love their photos. Their person is very talented at taking photos and has snapped Vinnie and Pippa in lots of different poses and locations. More cuteness than Flickr can handle!



“We live in Idaho. Roo is three and he is a Yorkie mix. Roo loves to play with his stuffed animals daily.”



Samson is a white Maltese with a tiny bit of Shih Tzu.

“I really like this picture of myself. My parents named me after a musician — John K. Samson from a band called The Weakerthans. Anyway, I like to run around to music. I also like to wear (and chew, don’t tell) headphones.

My mom took this on her phone, though. Hopefully it works! Thanks for thinking about including me in your blog. I’m real glad I got a hair cut!

I hope we can play together real soon. Bark!”
