Ducks Vs Bucks

Hi Burgers,

I don’t want to sound biased or anything about today’s College Football Title game between the Oregon Ducks and the Ohio State Buckeyes, but the exact science of puppy predicting has UO taking home the trophy. Just saying.

Jimmy knows what’s up.

To be fair, this image of an OSU supporting tiger has been going around this morning. Powerful ally or hungry for Buckeyes?

What do you guys think? Are you rooting for ol’ Brutus Buckeye or do you want to see Puddles doing endless pushups?

Cheers,
Evan

Featured Fur Monster: Spencer is the Luckiest Basement Cat

Hi Burgers,

The week of feels continues today with the story of Featured Fur Monster Spencer as told by her loving and lovely human Booboo22

Featured Fur Monster: Spencer is the Luckiest Basement Kitteh

Remember, Basement Cat isn’t evil, just misunderstood. It’s our fault for buying slippers that incite his natural prey drive.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Cheers,

‘The Difference a Day Can Make’

Hi Burgers,

I’m jumping back on the feels train today because I feel like this trend is one a lot of us can relate to. People across the Internet have been posting heartwarming pictures of their pets before and after they were adopted. Check out the list!

These 6 Before and After Images of Adopted Pets Show the ‘Difference a Day Can Make’

This also gives me yet another chance to shamelessly promote my own little rescued dude who became fat, happy and lazy within a couple of weeks of adoption. Speaking of shameless…

Do you guys have any similar pictures we could add to this faith restoring trend?

Cheers,

A Soldier, His Pup and The Internet

Hi Burgers,

If you need a hump day pick me up, look no further than this touching story about a soldier who was reunited with his pup after being deployed to Iraq. The Internet can be used for good!

The protagonist of our tale is the lovely Prinny.

When 12-year-old Prinny’s human passed away she was left in the care of her mom’s son. The son is a soldier who was deployed to Iraq shortly after receiving the dog, forcing him to leave Prinny with the RSPCA.

Eventually, Prinny found her way to an adoption organization called Rescued With Love. When founder Kae Norman read Prinny’s story she took to the Internet with an open letter that begins like this:

Dear soldier, you don’t know me, but I know of you. I know you were heading to Darwin and then being deployed to Iraq. You are probably going through more than what anyone can ever imagine – and I wanted to ease your mind by letting you know that your Mum’s dog Prinny is safe and happy with us at Rescued With Love.

I know your Mum passed away and I am so sorry for your loss. Losing parents is hell, and to have to give up Prinny and surrender her to the RSPCA because you had no option would have been an unbearable burden.
I read your surrender form which came with her paperwork, and my heart broke for you, for Prinny and for your Mum. You wrote such beautiful things about Prinny, and what a gorgeous girl she is. You were right, she certainly is.

Though Prinny was an older dog and so considered more difficult of a candidate to find a forever home, she was adopted by her foster dad Brendan, who is a veteran.

Kae ends with the hope that “maybe this letter will find” its way the soldier. The open letter has since received nearly 3,000 shares and helped to track down Prinny’s soldier. He is going to visit her while he is on leave.

Enjoy your feels everyone.

Cheers,
Evan

Just the First Gif-Together of 2015, No Big Deal

Hi Burgers,

Everything in the transition from one year to the next has this pressure to be momentous, like “this is the final this of 2014,” or “that’s the first that of 2015!” I’m just going to try and control myself and keep it cool for the first Gif-Together of the year.

If you guys want to get all crazy though, I won’t stop you.

I’m still feeling like 2014. So let me in 2015

Thanks for a Lovely 2014!

Hi Burgers,

I’d like to quickly take a moment on this dreaded first Monday of the year to say thank you to all of you for a lovely 2014! You all have made Cheezburger into a cozy little home for everyone involved in this community. At the end of a pretty chaotic and absurd 2014, there’s nothing like having a place hide out and chuckle with friends for a while.

Bravo to everyone and I hope you’ll all stick around for a big year here at the Cheez!

With friends like you guys, there’s really no need for resolutions…

…is the clever line I’m using to give up on mine already.

Cheers,
Evan

Post Christmas Sportsball Monday

Hi Burgers,

Welcome back to Monday!

Hopefully the holidays treated everyone well. If you’re an NFL fan, you might have spent the weekend watching your team compete for a higher playoff seed, or if you’re like me and your team (go Niners..) has already been eliminated, maybe you went to brunch at a place so “fancy” they don’t have TVs. Stupid sportsball.

Coach Jim Harbaugh coached his final game for the 49ers this weekend too, which means his era of amazing sideline theatrics has come to an end. This is a shame because they tend to be a good way to get your non sports-loving friends to watch football with you.

Oh well. Good luck in Michigan Jim!

How’d your team do?

Cheers,
Evan
