Holy Cuteness Batman! I need to make, er...get me one!
Do you guys remember this cartoon, about the very rare dog, the Himalayan Squishie?
Well, Sheldonista Susan C. has sent in shocking photos that have captured the rare beast. But first, her letter:
I have a friend in the US Foreign Service who is currently stationed
in Nepal. I sent her an e-mail yesterday asking if she'd ever heard of an
Himalayan Squishie. I didn't hear back from her. Then early this
morning there was a knock on the front door. By time I got out of bed
to answer the door, all I found on the porch was an animal transport
carrier, and a car with diplomatic plates swooshing down the street.
Inside the crate? A little dog that looks like a wrinkly loaf of bread! I'm shocked - I don't know if my landlady will let me keep an Himalayan Squishie in the house, as I already have a cat. We're headed to the vet later today to get him all checked out and all his shots updated. Then it's off to get a dog bed and some chew toys.
And now, finally! The shocking photos revealed!!!
For more pics of the wild pup, check out her Flickr set here.
It's the cute button eyes that get me although I would hate to see this thing run and stop quickly. Is it like an accordion? What does its bark sound like - a squeaky toy? Would its eyes pop out?
