Hit The Trail With AnOldCowHand

My ROFLcopter

Hi Burgers,

This week’s Featured User is a Native Son of the Golden West and a member of the eponymous and very worthy association. AnOldCowHand describes himself as a “child of the land” and his love for the great outdoors of the Golden State shows. He also seems like a very handy guy to have around in the wilderness. Perhaps Cheezburger has a new official nature guide, let’s go camping.

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
I grew up on my grandparent’s cattle ranch in southern California, riding, and working cattle on 10,000 acres of rugged mountains. The ranch is largely gone, now, as encroaching civilization has gobbled up many of the old leases. Most of my riding these days is packing horses and mules in the high Sierra, and I do precious little of that.

Pre-Order Your Cheezburger Socks Today!

Hi Burgers,

The polls are closed and we have three winners! Thanks for voting on this important issue everyone. Your Cheezburger + Betbrand socks are now available for preorder. Are your toes wriggling in anticipation?

The socks won’t be ready to ship until November, which means this will be the first holiday season that all of your friends and family will actually be excited to receive socks.

What do you think everyone? Do you approve of the winners? What should we make next?

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Hi Burgers,

Behold the majestic pug! These beautiful fur monsters deserve our attention.

Autumn Is Upon Us

Hi Burgers,

Happy unofficial start of the fall season! I’d like to quickly offer either condolences for the untimely death of your freedom due to the coming school year, or congratulations on laying out the perfect outfit for every day of the entire first week of class. You know which category you fall into.

The real question is, do you have matching socks?

Also, don’t forget that the end of summer means you have to put away your tight white pants.

Some people might not be overly upset by this news.

Whether you’re excited or saddened, good luck!

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Renadee: Hockey Renegade With A Heart Of Gold

renadee

Hi Burgers,

The next time you go to a hockey game, take renadee along, she’s full of passion and if anyone gets in your face, she’ll protect you. Of course renadee has a soft side too, she’s a romance writer and an artist. A regular renaissance woman, just like all of us in the Cheez community.

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
My user name is simply my first name and the first letter of my last name. Very creative.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I became a member somewhere around 2004 or 2005. It doesn’t seem that long ago, but time flies when you’re having fun.

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I choose my Cheezfrens based on their profiles and their LOL’s. I must find common interests in their profile and they must be FUNNY! It helps also if they’re already friends with some of my other esteemed Cheezfrens.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
My favorite site is LOLcats because I love cats and I understand them, to the extent that anyone can.

Congratulations To VioletD!

Hi Burgers,

It’s recently been brought to my attention that our very own VioletD has just made her 400th Front Page on Cheezburger!

In celebration of this momentous occasion, I made a list of 10 of her many Front Pages demonstrating her excellent command of the lolmaking craft.
violet
Bravo VioletD and keep on lolling!

If anyone else knows of someone with a similar distinction, or someone that just deserves some headbonks, let me know!

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Vote For Socks, Then Gif-Together

Hi Burgers,

Thanks for helping us pick out our socks! Keep up the good work by checking out the post below. The polls will stay open for a few more days.

In the mean time, it’s been a while since we’ve caught up. Maybe a quick Wednesday Gif-Together?

We’ve just been grinding away at Cheezburger, getting ready for some fun stuff.

Possibly creating a race of cybor-hamster-super-warriors…

What have you all been up to?

Delivering daily dose of silliness.

Gnolex

A GIF Together?!
With no warning?!

Darn, you caught me so off guard this time!

Well, I got nothing, so here’s a dancing Fluttershy.

Help Us Pick Out Our Socks

Hi Burgers,

How are your socks? Black probably, or maybe you have those creepy ones with the individual toes? Well, throw them all away! Better yet, give them to your dog as a gift for National Dog Day today, because we’re teaming up with Betabrand to bring you Cheezburger socks!

This is really happening and we need your help! We have six designs and we can’t decide on the final three that will be included with each three-pack purchase.

Head here or click the image above to vote for your favorite designs until September 3. You can vote on as many designs as you like. You do have to create an account with Betabrand, but don’t worry, they will not spam you.

Thanks for voting everyone!

Cheers,
Cheezburger

P.S.

National Dog Day Is Tomorrow!

Hi Burgers,

While your cat expects every day to be dedicated to celebrating her grandeur and mystique, your dog is just happy that you come home every day. August 26 is the day we honor the other half of the household fur monster equation and appreciate that little dude who appreciates you like no other.

For every famous Internet cat there is an equal and perhaps not all that opposite Internet Famous dog. I’ve uploaded a bunch of celeb pups into the builder, feel free to check them out, make some captions, Totally Looks Likes or whatever you want and submit them to the site or the blog. I’ll post some stuff up here and we’ll put some good ones on the site too.

Dinky Dog is one of my favorites lately. Who is your favorite Internet dog?

The ladies can’t resist Dinky.

We’d love to see some of your canines too (not your teeth), so send us some captions or gifs or whatever!

I’ve never missed a chance to humble brag about my little guys, and that streak continues. Ben is bravely sporting a 3D printed space helmet here, looking toward new horizons.

That one’s in the builder too.

Who’s a good boy? All the dogs! Happy NDD (acronyms make things official)!

Cheers,
Cheezburger
