Photos by @vincentjmusi | You are safely looking down the gullet of Toby, a wired, 5-year-old wire fox terrier with one lung and a bum leg. I didn’t ask how these particulars came to be, as there was way too much going on.

For a period of time that can be measured in years, I played a pinball machine called FunHouse at a local pub within radio distance of the picture desk of a former employer. The bonus multiball round was achieved by skillfully flippering a pinball into the open mouth of a giant, talking, dismembered doll head named Rudy, launching what is known as THE FRENZY in which all madness is broken loose.

In my studio, we have in our inventory of tricks and gimmicks a pathetic, faded orange rubber squeaky pig that, when squeaked properly, will elicit a curious response in most animals, perhaps a head tilt or a pause. In Toby’s case, it unleashed THE FRENZY.

Anyone who dared to enter the air space between Toby and the orange pig was in danger. My wife and loyal assistant Callie had lost control of the beast and both now looked disapprovingly at me. We had few contingency plans, and leadership was called for. Toby’s owner just paced apologetically back and forth, explaining that we had made a grave mistake.
Let the record show that I did not actually perform the squeak, but I did order the squeak and now take full responsibility. The squeak stops here.

Callie and what’s left of the pig are still not talking to me.

Hello, world! Today’s #WeeklyFluff is an inseparable pair of French bulldogs, Theo and Cato (@theobonaparte). Whether they’re napping, playing or just hanging out on a cold winter day, chances are that they’re doing it together, bundled up in the same blanket.

Recovering Lenga Forest | Photograph by Stephanie Hohmann // #sponsored by @bloombergdotorg // "The Lenga Forest in the French Valley of Torres del Paine National Park was hit by forest fire," writes Your Shot photographer Stephanie Hohmann. "A group run mainly by volunteers works tirelessly to grow lenga saplings to replant forests such as this one. During a trip to Patagonia, I spent the morning at Reserva Cerro Paine Tree Nursery helping to water and transfer lenga saplings into larger pots. One day, I hope to return and see mature trees planted in this very spot."

The sights, the sounds, the smells - sensory overload in the best way. What a wonderful place to stroll, especially at night.
