Chinchillas are so fluffy and cute to begin with that baby ones seems even more irresistible. Here is a picture of a baby chinchilla being bottle fed.
Look at those tiny paws and large ears! I hope that this little one is doing well.

I just love German Shepherds too much to not post this lovely photo:
I wonder how long it took to get this shot? I can imagine the parents staying in place, but the young puppies? I would never think to try getting a shot like this, and it so fun to see them all together.
Since I missed posting more pictures for Halloween this year I thought I would post this picture now because it is too good to pass up! And also because I just discovered it today.
Dog dressed as a TY Beanie Baby:
Such a simple but awesome idea! Just make a large heart shaped “hang tag” out of poster board or cardboard, put a TY logo on it, and attach to your dog’s collar. This is all assuming your dog would allow the tag to be on its collar for very long without ripping it apart. I think the key is knowing your dog, and making the tag the right size.
Back again from another break!
Thor: The Dark World is now playing in theaters and if you are into that kind of thing you should all go see it! I went today and I enjoyed it.
To honor the film’s opening, here is a guinea pig dressed in a Thor costume:

Love it! Such an amazingly crafted little costume and a very willing guinea pig!

A late Wednesday Woof!
This Golden Retriever got into a bit of trouble, but that look on his face says that it not possibly be his fault.
The caption with this picture said “He is acting like he has no idea how this happened.” I have a really good feeling that he knows exactly how it happened, but that it might get him in trouble so it is best to not know. Ha ha! So innocent looking, but willing to go the extra mile to get what he wants!
Has your dog ever gotten into something and had a box (or anything else) stuck as evidence?
I saw in the news today that Federal animal health officials are warning that Chinese made jerky dog treats (sweet potato, dried fruit, duck, and chicken flavors) are causing illness and pet death.
Here is a screen capture of the FDA’s website:
The story I read in TIME cites that over 3,600 dogs and 10 cats have become ill, while 600 pets have died after eating these jerky treats. After running many tests it is still unclear what is making pets sick. There was a different incident last January when a couple well known brands of chicken jerky treats were removed from shelves voluntarily over a scare they contained unapproved antibiotics.
Please, if you feed your dog or cat jerky treats check where they were made (for those you have in your home now and before buying any at the store). It is always better to feed your pets as naturally as possible, and to know what kind of quality control the brands you use have in place for food safety. Given the multiple scares, it is probably better to not feed your pets this kind of jerky treat.
If your pet has become ill from eating jerky treats please take your dog to the vet and contact the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA lists a few things you can look out for in your pet should they consume bad jerky treats: decreased appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, diarrhea, increased water consumption, and/or increased urination. Some cases involve animals with other symptoms including convulsion, collapse, or skin problems. If you suspect that jerky treats made your pet ill the FDA may want any leftover treats, or the packaging itself, for testing.
You can read the story in TIME or there is a lot of good information on the FDA’s website.
The guinea pigs are back!
Sorry for the lack of posts this past week, had personal matters to attend to.
Arctic Foxes are so furry and adorable. Here is picture of a fox from Iceland:
I love the fuzzy fur all over!

Sorry for the late post everyone, but it is still sort of Wednesday! Therefore, here is a funny Wednesday Woof! featuring a little Corgi that might not be the smartest dog.
Poor little guy! I do hope he realized that it is possible to go around the fence. Otherwise, he never did get to his toy/treat.
Has your dog ever done something like this?
Red Pandas are one of my favorite animals, they are so fuzzy and do adorable things! Red Pandas enjoy the snow, and I guess they also enjoy playing with pumpkins!
Here is a fall themed treat, a red panda enjoying a small pumpkin:
Here is a screen shot from the video:
And here is a picture of a pumpkin carved to look like a picture of a red panda:
I thought it fit this post’s theme! As a guinea pig I have not tried to carve a pumpkin before, but it seems fun.
We here at Fuzzy Today love guinea pigs, especially ones doing adorably cute and inexplicable things.
Here is a guinea pig named Chester, in bed all tucked in:
I hope that he has a good nap!
While pictures like this are irresistible, I have a hard time reconciling the idea of putting Cola or Fizz in a bed long enough to get a picture. So many opportunities for bathroom accidents and the like. But this really makes me want to take more themed or posed pictures with them!
