World’s Largest Rodent Takes Care Of Dachshund Pups

Some total jerkwad took a couple of dachshund puppies and stuffed them into a garbage bin behind a church. They were discovered and taken to Rocky Ridge Refuge in Arkansas, but they needed a foster mama to take care of them. So the folks at Rocky Ridge paired the pups with a capybara named Cheesecake. Say what now?

Capybaras are basically oversized guinea pigs, and the largest rodent in the world. And, it turns out, really good at being foster moms. Animals don’t really care what species their caregiver is, so the puppies seem totally fine with their new mom. And while Cheesecake isn’t up for adoption, the puppies definitely are. [Dogster]

Meet Bernard Hopkins Kardashian Odom!

She doesn’t have a baby on the way like sister Kim, but Khloe Kardashian has her own new cuddly accessory — a boxer puppy gifted to her by husband Lamar Odom! The couple named the adorable nugget Bernard Hopkins after the legendary prize fighter, but will call him “B.” Not to be morbid, but this is the Kardashians we’re talking about, so my fingers are crossed that Bernard has a longer life than Kim’s kitten Mercy.

Swoosh!

I’ve noticed that I feel more concerned about animals than I do for humans. If you told me your grandpa had arthritis, I would nod sadly and politely. But if you told me this otter had arthritis, I would exclaim “OH MY GOD THAT IS SO SAD THIS ADORABLE OTTER HAS ARTHRITIS!” Fortunately the Oregon Zoo is all over it to keep Eddie the otter as spritely as possible. Key to his elbow-flexing regimen are shooting some hoops in the pool: he has a tiny, adorable basket and a tiny, adorable basketball. He’s actually pretty good! “Eddie almost never misses,” a zookeeper explains. “And if he does miss, he keeps going until he makes it.” For dunking baskets, Eddie gets some fish. Maybe you can replicate this with grandpa. [Smithsonian Mag]

Dogs. Sigh. They can be so dumb. Sometimes they eat their own poop. Sometimes they eat cat food. And sometimes they eat things even dumber than poop or cat food, such as 111 pennies. You read that right. One-hundred and eleven. Jack, a 13-year-old Jack Russell terrier in New York City (pictured), scarfed all these Abraham Lincolns and then started to barf. His owner, Tim Kelleher, rushed his dog to the vet, who discovered with an X-ray that Jack’s stomach was a poochy piggy bank. Via an endoscopy surgery, the vet removed all the pennies five at a time. He’s like the dog version of that man who died after winning a cockroach eating contest! Luckily Jack is okay and was not poisoned by all the zinc in those coins, as zinc is toxic for dogs. And I suppose his master is lucky Jack did not have a taste for dollar bills. [NJ.comCBS Local]

I recently signed up for a Google alert for the phrase “baby goat,” which means whenever anything happens on the internet that concerns baby goats, Google sends me an email. The first baby goat alert I got was about a taxidermist who was making hats out of baby goats. So traumatizing. I almost shut off my baby goat alert after that, but then I got an email about this video of week-old goat kids playing at the Oakland Zoo, and it made it all worth it. [YouTube]

It's A Baaaaa-by

Actually, it’s a baby Mouflon. A Mouflon is a type of wild sheep with big horns. So technically this is a baby lamb, but if you ask me, she looks more like a baby deer. Anyway. The cuteness is indisputable. Go on. Try and dissuade me. Nope, you can’t do it. [YouTube]

In Which I Introduce You To Mug, Your New Favorite Internet Cat

This is Mug. This little cat is owned by my friends Renee and Tom, and I’m absolutely obsessed with her. No, me and Mug have never actually formally met, but that hasn’t stopped me from “liking” her Facebook page and spending at least a good two to 10 minutes going over her ridiculous photos every day.

And oh, did I tell you about her amazing back story? Keep reading »

21 Baby Animals Being Bottle Fed

I’m in love.  I’m in love with a baby gorilla.  His name is Nyambe and he was rejected by his gorilla mommy, who sounds like a fucking bitch, because LOOK AT THAT FACE. Nyambe now lives at the Cincinnati Zoo, where zookeepers take turns wearing gorilla outfits and snuggling him while “speaking” in various gorilla noises. Also, he wears diapers.

For human babies I know that breast is best. I fully support the right of any Siberian tiger or marmoset to nurse her hungry child in any Walmart, Starbucks, or public park!  But dangit, there is something just too cute about a baby animal sucking on a plastic bottle.  Click through for 20 more…
