The Daily Squee: Golden Retriever Puppy Comforts A Grown-Up Dog Having A Nightmare

I’ve seen a lot of cute puppy videos in my day, but this one is especially sweet. A compassionate golden retriever pup can’t bear to see her older pal have a nightmare, so she comforts him in his sleep. The poor thing probably doesn’t even realize he’s just dreaming. BRB, melting into a million pieces. [TIME]…

Watch These 7 Kittens Move In Sync

I don’t know where these Maine Coon kittens came from or how they can manage to match their movements so closely. All I know is that they’re so mesmerized by whatever it is they’re staring at that I can’t decide whether to find it adorable or slightly creepy. Let’s go with adorable. [Tastefully Offensive]…

The Daily Squee: Wild Foxes On A Trampoline

Jesse, a Colorado artist, got a huge surprise when she looked out her window and saw a pair of wild foxes exploring her backyard trampoline. It turns out that foxes enjoy gymnastics just as much as humans do. When the foxes realize how high they can jump, they can’t help but stick around to play!

This Stray Cat Became Best Friends With A Lynx At The Zoo

The Leningrad Zoo in Russia became home to a stray calico cat when she snuck on the property looking for food. She somehow found her way into the zoo’s lynx closure and soon became best friends with the lynx who lived there. When the zoo saw how close they were, they decided to adopt the…

Tiny Baby Mouse Noms On A Flower

I’m usually not one to see rodents as cute. But! This 20-day-old house mouse deserves an exception. The mouse’s human has been raising her and hopes to release her back into the wild when she gets old enough! I wouldn’t be happy if she was in my cupboards gnawing through my cereal boxes, but nibbling…

Be My Pet: Meet The World’s Shortest Cat

I am on a mission to make Pixel the Munchkin cat my pet, because we a match made in heaven. Pixel is only five inches tall from shoulder to paw, and at 4’11”, I’m not exactly what you’d call tall. She’s my pet soulmate! Munchkin, whose small size is due to a genetic mutation, i…

Watch This Beagle Freak Out When He Receives 100 Bouncy Balls For His Birthday

Maymo the lemon beagle had a birthday, and his humans treated him to 100 bouncy balls as a gift. One ball would have been exciting enough, but one hundred!!?  What more could a dog dream of? Maymo is so excited that he tires himself out and we don’t blame him. [Gawker]…

What’s The Difference Between A Horse And A Playground? Nothing, If You’re A Baby Goat

Reason #4,582 I need a baby goat (or a hundred baby goats, ideally) ASAP: through the eyes of a baby goat, everything is a piece of playground equipment. Even, for example, a very large horse that is trying to take a nap. And isn’t that a great way to look at the world? [Time]…

Life Dream Status: Goat Cafes Are Becoming A Thing

You’ve surely heard of cat cafes, where patrons can have a coffee and a bagel while snuggling a furry kitty, but a new kind of animal dining experience may be sweeping the globe soon, one that I’m WAY more excited about: goat cafes. The trend is starting, as so many weird/wonderful dining trends do, i…

I Can’t Stop Watching This Baby Owl’s Dance Moves

I am oddly mesmerized by this baby owl’s bizarre dance moves. Sure, the little guy is adorable, but something about those wide eyes paired with the music is just a little bit odd. Good thing the cute factor (and those lashes) makes up for it! [Tastefully OffensiveBird Rescue Charitable Trust]…

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!

Phillip and Sue Lauer have (at least) two big passions in life: their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono, and the book/TV series “Game of Thrones.” Naturally, like any decent dog-obsessed nerds with a lot of time of their hands, they’ve meticulously recreated the HBO show with their pups playing the various characters, including Jon Snow,…

Josie The Two-Legged Chihuahua Gets A Sweet Set Of Wheels

Sweet little chihuahua Josie was sadly born without her front legs, but thanks to the Hanger Orthopedic Group, she’s now got WHEELS. Watching Josie motor around gave me a seemingly endless case of the squees. So awesome. [Vimeo]

It’s Time To Cry: Girlfriend Sells Deployed Soldier’s Dog On Craigslist, New Owners Refuse To Give Him Back

As a dog owner — though I really think of myself as a mother to a beautiful dog daughter — this story just breaks my heart. Imagine going out of town and returning to discover that someone you trusted to take care of your beloved pet while you were gone had actually sold that beloved pet instead. That’…

The Daily Squee: Boston Terrier Puppy Tries Peanut Butter For The First Time!

What is it about Boston terriers that makes them so damn cute? Bosco the puppy would be fun to hang out with even if he wasn’t having his very first taste of peanut butter alongside his dog buddy Riley. But his utter and complete glee makes him that much more adorable. I get it, Bosco — nothing&#8217…

The Daily Squee: A Wolf Pup With Hiccups!

Who’s afraid of the big, bad wolf? The phrase takes on a thoroughly less menacing tone when the wolf in question is actually tiny and also has an adorable case of the hiccups, as illustrated by this 8-week-old wolf pup at the Wolf Conservation Center in Salem, New York. I’m not afraid of you at…

Here Is A Video Of A Fly Going Up A Baby Goat’s Nose

One time, back in college, I was reading a very serious passage of a personal essay to a very serious writing workshop group, and a tiny fly flew up my nose mid-sentence. I started huffing and sneezing furiously before yelling, “I think I feel it crawling into my brain!” and running out of the classroom…
