The New Monkey Breed Looks Freakishly Like Messed Up Artwork

You might have heard that scientists discovered a new breed of monkey in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of which was apparently being kept in captivity by a local schoolteacher like it was no big deal. You might have also heard about a woman in Spain who attempted to restore a 19th century fresco by Elias Garcia Martinez, but ended up botching it beyond belief. What do these two things have in common? Keep reading »

This is Obie, who is quickly gaining fame in his quest to lose weight and become the Dachshund Biggest Loser. His story began when a relative of his owners, an elderly couple in failing health, asked the Oregon Dachshund Rescue for help. They’d been showing Obie love with food and were unable to provide him with physical activity, and now this pup was in trouble. The organization posted a plea on Facebook: could someone foster Obie and help him get healthy? Nora Vanatta, an EMT and veterinary technician from Portland, stepped up to the plate, and when Obie arrived from Seattle, he weighed a whopping 77 pounds. Now this sweet pup is in the process of losing 40 pounds on a low-fat, high-protein diet, and inspiring other overweight canines to get fit with his “Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition” Facebook page, which already has over 33,000 fans. “My hope is that he can be an inspiration to any person or animal trying to lose weight,” says Vanatta. Obie, we’re all cheering for you. [OregonLive]

“Top Dog Model”: Meet The Bitches

I’ve got to hand it to the Brits for taking reality TV to a whole different level. Ashleigh and her Border Collie/Bichon Frise/Chinese crested mix, Pudsey, winners of “Britain’s Got Talent,” are hosts of a new show called “Top Dog Model.”

NOT A JOKE. It’s exactly what you think it is: “America’s Next Top Model” for dogs. A panel of judges including Ashley and Pudsey, “X Factor” contestant Stacey Solomon, fashion model Lilah Parsons and Hollywood dog agent Addison Witt will test the most poised pups in the country as they go paw-to-paw in dog modeling challenges. In the end, only one canine will have what it takes to be crowned “Top Dog Model.” The winner will be awarded an advertising campaign for a well-known brand. I assume a dog modeling contract and photo spread in Dog Fancy Magazine or something is also part of the prize package. Keep reading »

Needs More Bub

If you’re anything like me, you think Lil Bub is maybe the finest cat thing on the planet. The perma-kitten with stunted legs, bug eyes and a perpetually limp tongue has become an insta-celeb in influential cat video circles. Which is why Vice up and decided to make a documentary following Lil Bub’s provocative exploits. We can’t wait for the full-length Bubathon, so in the meantime, here’s a Bubful teaser. Stay tuned!
