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!” And then she would give me side eye and that would be the end of it. But still — look at how much fun these pooches are having hanging ten! Shaka brah!
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]
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]
Unimpressed cat captured our hearts yesterday, and so we figured we’d take a look at all the things that fall under his scornful eyes. Click through the gallery above to see what unimpressed cat is thoroughly unimpressed with!
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 this post my two weeks’ notice. Time to give this mysterious “Carol” a call…
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 tearing off his foot, before emergency workers could rescue him. Gothamist is reporting the man’s leg was shredded, his back was bitten and “a fang punctured his lung.” Keep reading »
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 for Mr. Mittens and his owners! [The Daily What]
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 case with all 15 of my favorite celeb dogs, but these pooches certainly win their owners points in my book.
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 legs. He weighs a lean 115 pounds, and eats up to 12 cups of food a day (aw, a growing boy!). “Zeus is an awesome dog,” said his owner Denise Dorlag. “The only downside is that everything costs more; the food, medicines, transport. We had to get a van to be able to transport him, oh, and if he steps on your foot – he leaves bruises!” We bet! [Discovery]
