The Daily Squee: A Wolf Pup With Hiccups!

Wolf Pup With Hiccups
Someone give this little guy some peanut butter!

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 all, little wolf. In fact, I would be glad to snuggle those hiccups right out of you. [HyperVocal]

 

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

Goat With Fly In Its Nose
Get It Out! Get It Out!

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 in a panic. Basically, what I’m saying is…I know exactly how this goat feels. [Laughing Squid]

This Is The Story Of A Dog Named Pig

This Is The Story Of A Dog Named Pig

Guys, this is Pig. Pig is a dog and she makes my heart do somersaults. She’s from Alabama and is the belle of the ball, aka Birmingham’s annual Do Dah Day pet parade. As you probably noticed, Pig is a little unusual looking for a dog and captures the attention of everyone who meets her. She’s a little … pig-like in stature. According to AL.com, ”Pig was born in the woods northeast of Atlanta last fall to a feral mother. … Pig is missing part of her spine; she’s missing several ribs. And she has vertebrae that are fused and twisted. Near her neck, her spinal cord splits into two separate cords. Her hips and joints are rotated in the wrong positions.”

But! “Pig’s profound birth defects make her survival and attitude remarkable.” Keep reading »

The Daily Squee: This Puppy Hates Mornings As Much As We Do

"But it's not even noon yet!"

Thor, a Great Dane puppy, is supposed to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to go to work with his human. He sounds just like we did, oh, every single morning of high school. Can you really blame him for wanting to stay in bed? It’s okay, Thor. Lots of humans act the same way in the mornings. You’ll get used to it. [Tastefully Offensive]

Baby Panda To Predict The World Cup Results

This existed on the Internet for 24 hours before I became aware of it, which means ALL OF YOU are in trouble: a baby panda will be predicting the winner of the 2014 World Cup. With the Cup taking place in Brazil in just one week, a panda conservation center in Chengdu, China, has “invited” a panda cub to use her psychic powers to guess who will emerge victorious. According to the Wall Street Journal, the cub will make a choice by going towards boxes of food marked with different national flags, or perhaps by climbing a tree marked with flags. The young cub will be the unwitting rival of the late Paul The “Psychic” Octopus, who predicted the outcome of many a soccer game before he suddenly died, leaving a publicity stunt-sized hole that needed to be filled. Obviously, by a baby panda. Good luck, little buddy! May your psychic powers not fail you during your moment in the limelight. [Wall Street Journal]

Now You Can Adopt Puppies Through A Catalog (Sort Of)

Not even Peggy Olsen could have come up with an advertising plan like this: how could anyone resist thinking about rescuing a homeless pet when their cute faces are planted right into a catalog? Green Wood Animal Shelter in London teamed up with British company Furniture Village put together an online brochure that includes the addition of special guests to their usual catalogue photos of household decor: dogs and cats who are looking for forever homes. The pets-to-be, who currently reside at the shelter, can be adopted with just a few clicks. I clicked on a few of the catalog stars to learn their stories, and it kind of melted my heart to see “Reserved” next to some of their names in bright letters. Lots of the animals featured in the brochure aren’t even listed on the shelter’s site anymore, which means they’ve been placed with loving humans! You can check out the brochure photos here and if you’re in Green Wood’s area, think about offering a home to sweet little fuzzballs like kitties Boudicca and Gunner, who still need families of their own!

This Bear Is Having The Best Weekend

This Bear Is Having The Best Weekend

I am so envious of this super chill black bear right now. Look at him, all laid back in a hammock, soaking in the warm pre-summer air, like a boss. Daytona Beach homeowner Vincent James spotted the bear kickin’ back in his yard for a solid 20 minutes before being spooked by something and leaving — only to return a little while later for more chill time. I realize bears are scary beasts, but I sure wouldn’t mind lying end to end with him if he’d make a little room… [Gawker]
