5 Adorable Behaviors That Mean Your Dog Hates You

5 Adorable Behaviors That Mean Your Dog Hates You

Once upon a time, a bunch of prehistoric horror-wolves realized that the clumsy species of spear-flinging monkeys they were snacking on would trade belly rubs and a place by the fire if they occasionally mauled something on command. Since then, man and canine have peacefully waltzed together through the annals of time. Thanks to this relationship, most people think they’re pretty good at understanding dogs: when a pup wags its tail, it’s happy; when it whines, it’s unhappy. That’s why we love dogs — they actually have something like human emotions (unlike cats, who feel only cold contempt, all the time). Read more on Cracked…

You’re Welcome: Here Are Puppies Shaking Off Drops Of Water In Slow Motion

Puppy
Love!

Photographer Carli Davidson’s “Shake” photo series captures puppies via high-speed photography as they shake water droplets off their fur. Their reactions in slow motion are much funnier than we’d ever imagine when watching it happen in real time. As if the photos themselves weren’t cute enough, Davidson put together a video of some of her best models that will diminish any and all Hump Day blues in your life. [Laughing Squid]

This Cat Thinks She’s A Supermodel

Cat
Fierce

First of all, this cat’s name is Twitter. Like, after the internet. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s all marvel at her Naomi Campbell strut across her household carpet. All that’s missing is “Work Bitch” playing in the background. And maybe kitty-sized pumps. [Neatorama]

Baby Elephant Goes Ham Smashing Large Pumpkins, Falls & Can’t Get Up

Baby Elephant Goes Ham On Large Pumpkins, Falls & Can't Get Up
Oh Shit. Cletus Fell Over Again...

Anybody who says they don’t like Halloween is lying. Everybody loves Halloween, including zoo animals. To help get you in the holiday spirit, take a cue from these pumpkin-smashing elephants who classily stomp on them until a younger elephant comes along and just goes totally ham. Kind of like the kid who submerges his entire body in water and thrashes around while bobbing for apples, this elephant smashes the pumpkins and rolls around in them until he knows they’re good and flattened. He’s all like yeahhhh, victory! And then he tries to get up…

Goats In Lust: They’re Just Like Us!

Goats In Lust: They're Just Like Us!

We’d all like to think we’ve evolved way past our animal antecedents, having transcended the baser survival instincts that propelled us from the primordial ooze to this moment. These very instincts have been variously invoked by relationship experts, who will one day have us believing that we’re not that different from our mammalian brethren and the next consoling us with the alleged ocean that exists between our higher selves and our need-driven beast counterparts.

All that stuff about how men can’t be expected to be faithful because they’re programmed to spread their seed much like our ape ancestors did … I mean who the fuck knows? Seems like a pretty convenient theory that leaves out a lot of female agency.  I’m hardly an expert in matters of love, human evolution or animal psychology, but I did recently begin a new career in goat husbandry, and if my weeks inside a barn witnessing the aforementioned ruminants breed is any indication, we’re really not so far off from our quadripedular (not a word but it stays) friends. Here are some things that I found eerily familiar in simultaneously distressing and comforting ways. Being that I’m totally objective and trained in these matters, I will say authoritatively that these observations basically reaffirmed my suspicion that dudes are by and large totally addled idiots when fueled by lust, and that sex makes bitches act cray. Highly scientific stuff. I’m probably going to be awarded an honorary degree from somewhere any minute. Keep reading »

Simon The Cat Hates Leashes

Cat
NOPE

Simon the cat and his buddy Wash were taken for a walk in the park, but Simon was not having it. Wash adapted to life on a leash, but Simon revolted in protest. Unfortunately, curling up in a ball doesn’t stop life from dragging you along anyway. I feel you, Simon. [BuzzFeed]
