Nominate Dogpatch Press for an Ursa Major Award – get fuzzy hugs! I love furries so much, blogging about them is it’s own reward. But I love shinies too, so can the highly attractive readers of this site nominate it for an award? Please submit a Best Magazine nomination at the Ursa Majors site. These hugs are worth it. OK, they’re worth nothing because I hug everyone for free. (They’re just priceless.)

Reddit has more comments, and there’s a good one about the “first iconic fursuits” in the video at 47:00. It shows Hilda The Bambioid salaciously played in “leather lingerie” by Robert Hill. In 1989, little did they know where this would lead… “There were TWO fur-suits there: Hilda in performance, as you see in the footage here, and the un-named bobcat who showed up later at the dance.”
