A dog named Hei Nui has come to the rescue of three snow tigers and one white tiger in Weihai City, in China’s eastern Shandong province. It is believed the quadruplets were abandoned by their mother because large litters are uncommon for tigers. The dog has been nursing the tigers along with her two puppies.

I had the pleasure of meeting jewelry designer Kirsten Goede of Objets d’Envy (pronounced ohb-jay don-vee) in The Frisky office a few weeks ago.

I instantly fell in love with several of her pieces that I think you’ll like even if you prefer vintage, tough, or sparkly jewelry. Keep clicking for a closer look.

Weak. My hummus shall miss using you as a vehicle, Pretzel Crisps. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
We have a super-sized edition of “What Are We Wearing Today?” because a few of our freelancers and non-office peeps sent in pics. I’m thinking we might have to battle over the best vintage finds because at least a few ladies are rocking secondhand items. And don’t forget to tell us what you’re rocking today.
Children make an awfully tasty afternoon snack, don’t they, Mr. Camel? [The Daily What] Keep reading »
