17 Brussels Griffons Get Their Halloween On

Who doesn’t love a Brussels Griffon? Said to be the inspiration for both Chewbacca and ewoks, Brussels Griffons are just so naturally silly looking that they can solicit a laugh from me even without a Halloween costume. But thankfully, we’ve found 17 Brussels Griffons wearing ridiculous Halloween looks, too.

Be My Pet: Mitik, The “Fat, Mustachioed” Orphaned Baby Walrus

I didn’t realize until I saw this photo of Mitik how badly my life is in need of a walrus companion. Mitik is 15 months old, 234 pounds, and an orphan. He was found in the waters of Alaska in late-July and was nursed back to health at a facility there before being transferred thi…

10 Corgis Getting Ready For Halloween

Corgis are, to me, God’s comedy. I understand that they had some breeding reason to make a dog with short legs and a wide body, but come on, look at those guys! THEY ARE WALKING HILARITY! And what’s better than a regular ol’ corgi doing corgi things? A corgi in a costume. Which is why…

Have you seen this woman? Authorities are on the hunt for her after she was caught on film taking  a ride on a Manatee in Fort De Soto, Florida over the weekend. If apprehended, the mystery woman faces 2nd degree misdemeanor charges for violating the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, which clearly states, “It is unlawful for…

4 Ways Owning A Pet Prepares You For A Relationship

It’s time to throw those ideas about crazy cat lady spinsters to the curb. The fact of the matter is that owning a pet—whether it’s a dog, cat, bunny or goldfish (okay, maybe not a goldfish)—is actually the best training ground that exists for a relationship with another human. Don’t believe me? Consider this:…

Happy Monday, Says This Adorable Baby Tiger

You’re having a case of the Mondays? Us too. Let’s not even talk about the viperous crapitude that is the MTA. Instead, let’s remedy our overall Monday sourness with a pic of this just-born baby Sumatran tiger cub. How rad is he? I could look into those baby blues all day.

Born at…

11 Photos Of Dogs Surfing

I can say with confidence that if I ever stuck Lucca on a surfboard and sent her off to catch a wave, she would never forgive me. “But Lucca,” I would say, “Look at how much fun all of these dogs are having at the 4th Annual Surf City Surf Dog event in Huntington Beach!”…

Colonel Meow Throws Some Shade On Boo

Colonel Meow is like the anti-Lil Bub — a cat so fiercely snooty and evil that he refers to his followers as “minions.” The other day, Colonel Meow took to Facebook to show his disdain for another familiar furry face — Boo, the adorable Pomeranian pup. Needless to say, Meow is not a fan. [YouTube]…

Definitive Proof That Cats Are Superior To Dogs

I love this video, which helpfully outlines just why and how cats rule and dogs drool. The only small suggestion I have is that they hire German director Werner Herzog to narrate the next one. This video is instructive, and very, very accurate (though Amelia and Lucca might say otherwise). [Buzzfeed]…

Found: The Greatest Job In The World

When my brother texted me a picture of this sign that he found hung up on the wall of his rural high school, I knew I had found my true calling. I mean, I’ve come across many miniature horse care and feeding jobs in my day, but none with such a flexible schedule. Amelia, consider…

What happens when a baby goat falls into a pond at a petting zoo and starts to struggle? Well, as this video shows, some guy shouts, “Goat in the water!” and a heroic pig springs into action! And then we all cry. [YouTube]…

Man Gives Me Ideas, Jumps Into Tiger Cage At The Bronx Zoo

Disturbing news out of the Bronx Zoo: yesterday, a man jumped into the tiger exhibit and lost a foot. Police say the apparently emotionally-disturbed 20-something man was riding the zoo’s monorail at around 3 p.m. when he suddenly jumped into the tiger pen.

One of the big cats began mauling the man, allegedly…

Lost Cat Has Been Found!

I always feel a little heartbroken when I see flyers for missing dogs and cats tacked up around the city, especially because you never get an update as to whether they’ve been found. But maybe this flyer — from cat owners rejoicing in having found their lost pet — will start a trend? So relieved…

My 15 Favorite Celeb Dogs

My dog Lucca is my best friend, the apple of my eye, the wind beneath my wings. But I’m a dog person in general and like to keep myself up to date on the furry friends of Hollywood’s best and brightest. Sometimes a celeb’s dog is actually their better half. I’m not saying that’s the…

Great Dane Zeus Takes Top Honors As Tallest Dog In The World

I pretty much love anything comically oversized, and that goes double for  animals. So you better believe I’m a little bit obsessed with Zeus, the 44-inch tall Great Dane that took top honors as the tallest dog in the world. The Otsego, Michigan, pup is just three-years-old, and stands 7-feet 4-inches when on his hind…

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…

9 Animal Movies To Make You Weep

Sad movies exist in every genre. Romance is obviously full of weepers, and plenty of dramas have enjoyed yanking your heart out and showing it to you as you stagger out of the theater. Even an action or sports movie can reduce the tough to tears if done right. (“Field of Dreams,” anyone?)…
