The lesson I’m going to take from this is that micro pigs are pretty much equally adorable, equally cuddly versions of cats. [Laughing Squid]

This Little Girl Cuddling With A Tibetan Mastiff Is Living My Wildest Dream

A Real-Life Stuffed Animal

Simba the Tibetan Mastiff is about as low-key as dogs get. Weiwei, his little human friend, gets to play with, sing to, and climb all over Simba to her heart’s content, and I’m profoundly jealous. [BoingBoing]
