Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Hi all, sorry to be late, we’ve had a bit of confusion here at Fur Face HQ as to who was doing today’s edition. I guess it’s me! In any event, rest assured it is indeed Friday, and I’m sure the denizens of Kinja have some wonderful Fur Faces for us to close out our weeks. Let’s get right to it!

Their initial impression was the same as yours, that it was probably a rock between the brake and the backing plate.

It is suspected that either cold damage occurred due…

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Greetings folks, it’s Friday again, and the holidays are drawing close. I’m about ready to do nothing productive for the rest of the year. But before that, I’ll muster enough effort to select some snouts from last week’s excellent post (we had lots of high-quality submissions, so this was a very hard week to choose).
