Are you ready to cry?

Meet Mama Jade, the abused pit bull who got a second chance. Read More »

The general public is slowly coming around to the idea that pit bulls and other “bully breeds” are not the violent, aggressive, killing machines that they’ve been made out to be for so long. However, the tide isn’t turning quickly enough for the thousands of sweet bully dogs who are languishing in shelters, passed over in favor of breeds with better reputations. Some truly sad statistics: 40% of all unadopted dogs in shelters are bully breeds, and 22% of shelters immediately euthanize all pit bulls, with no consideration of their personal temperament or circumstances. Photographer Douglas Sonders has spent the last two years working to change that. He started the #NotABully campaign to show the true character of bully breeds, through portraits and stories.

gorilla easter egg hunt
Found It!

The Easter Bunny came early this year to the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden for the annual gorilla egg hunt, the first for gorilla baby Gladys. The one-year-old baby made national headlines last year when she was rejected by her biological mother at zoo in Texas; she is now being raised by a surrogate gorilla mommy in Ohio, with whom she did the Easter egg hunt. It looks like the baskets were popular as hats. Silly gorilla, that’s not what you do with an Easter basket. [YouTube]

I hate bedtime too, Bam Bam!

Meet Bam Bam, a noisy little puppy who does not like bedtime. He tries to resist, but he’s just too tired to keep his little puppy eyes open. Who knew a toddler could be trapped in the body of a French bulldog? [Laughing Squid]

Model Irina Shayk Sunbathes With Some Pigs

Usually, the only pigs a supermodel has to deal with are the kinds who lurk around the bottle service tables at nightclubs. On a recent trip to the Bahamas, Irina Shayk cavorted with a whole new category of pigs: the adorable kind.

Shayk posted a pic on her Instagram of Pig Beach, located on the island of Exuma, where wild pigs run (snort?) free and frolic in the clear blue waves with sexy Russian bikini models.

The Daily Squee: What Your Cat’s Body Language REALLY Means

What Your Cat Is REALLY Thinking...

Illustrator Cindy Suen has taught us how to read our cats’ body language with her cute cartoons. But now we’ve been gifted with a live-action counterpart with real cats! Jeff Wysaski of Pleated Jeans has created his own funny take on what our cats might be thinking, and it’s a bit more close to home than we cat owners would probably like to admit. Your cat just might be a devious schemer on the inside. [Laughing Squid]

the daily squee
Can't. Even.

Did you know that sloths squeak!? Is this common knowledge to everybody else? I guess I had never thought before about “what does the sloth say?” I don’t know how I existed on this earth for so long without knowing that sloths’ squeaks are as cute as their little smiles. But this video of the sounds they make rocked my whole world. They sound kind of like human babies, only way better! (And with, uh, claws.) [E! Online]

This Kitty Is Obsessed With Tapping On Newspapers

So Bizarre!

Today in Animals Doing Weird But Oddly Endearing Things: Bibia the cat loves tapping his paw on anything made of paper. Once a newspaper or paper bag is in front of him, he touches it over and over and over again repetitively Really, it’s almost like Bibia has got kitty obsessive-compulsive disorder. Maybe Bibia likes the sound of his paw brushing against it? One thing’s for sure:  this kitty can’t stop, won’t stop. [Laughing Squid]

The Daily Squee: Watch These Cats Totally Ignore This Guy’s Magic Tricks

Cats Are Not Impressed By Your Card Tricks

Magician Rick Lax knows all kinds of nifty tricks, or as Gob Bluth would say, illusions. He’s probably used to receiving a major reaction from his audiences who are impressed by his skills of trickery. But in this video, Rick goes up against his toughest critics:  cats. Their visible boredom as he pulls out all the stops to get their attention is a feeling of rejection every cat owner knows. After all, kitties are snobs. [Laughing Squid]

Meet The “Geep,” A Goat-Sheep Hybrid That Will Steal Your Heart And Save The World

These days we have plenty of evidence that civilization is going to hell in a handbasket: Farrah Abraham’s erotic novelist career, elected officials making laws based on the belief that women are nothing more than barely sentient baby factories, the continuing existence of James Franco. BUT WAIT! There is finally a reason to celebrate, a beacon of hope in a dark world, the chosen one that will save us all — it’s a goat/sheep hybrid called a geep. The geep (rhymes with BEEEEEEEEEP!!!) sprang forth from the torrid love affair of a sheep and a goat in Ireland. According to the surprised farmer who discovered the unlikely progeny, the geep is quick, mischievous, wooly, and in perfect health.

Check out a video of this magical creature in action after the jump, and let me know if you want one of the “I BEEP FOR GEEP” bumper stickers that I’m making after work today. [Want. -- Amelia] Keep reading »

Just A Man And His Dog, Chillaxin’ In The Bathtub

I have a new addition for my Forever Laugh file! This photo has been cracking me up ever since I saw it on DListed the other day. Given that it inspired multi-days-long LULZ for me, I thought it best to share it with you. Please note, while I am totally obsessed with both my dog Lucca and taking regular rock star baths, I don’t think I could ever bring myself to take a joint bath with Lucca. Though the desire to replicate this photo does burn fiercely inside me… [via DListed]
