Your Daily Squee Mick The Boston Terrier Pup Learns To Walk
Go, Mick, Go!

You’re having a case of the Mondays. You need something to make you smile. Luckily we found this video of Mick the Boston Terrier puppy! Born with what’s called Swimmer Puppy Syndrome (such a cute name for something so terrible), Mick’s legs refused to cooperate — he couldn’t sit, stand or walk, but only lie on the ground with his legs splayed out underneath him. Dogs like Mick are typically destroyed, deemed unfit or unworthy of living, but thankfully the Mia Foundation, an animal rescue group in Rochester, New York, came to the pup’s rescue. Keep reading »

Maltey Cyrus Spoofs Miley With "We Can Bark"
"I'm a puppy, I can do what I want!"

I’ve been playing the latest Miley Cyrus song “We Can’t Stop” on repeat for weeks now and my dog Lucca is starting to get really, really annoyed. Luckily, her ears perked up when I put on this dog-inspired remake of the song by Maltey Cyrus called “We Can Bark.” Says Lucca: “This version is much better, Mom.” [The Pet Collective]

Meet Lentil, The French Bull Dog Puppy Who Helps Kids With Facial Abnormalities
We Love Lentil!

Get ready to squee and cry at the same time. Little five-month-old Lentil was born with a cleft palate and a cleft lip, and was the only member of his litter to survive. Because of these issues, Lentil wasn’t able to eat or drink on his own. He needed constant care and so Lindsay Condefer, a volunteer with the French Bull Dog Rescue Network of Philadelphia, brought Lentil to live with her, and blogged about the experience on the Facebook page My Name Is Lentil. This adorable pup quickly developed a fan base that has grown to over 90,000 followers — and now he’s giving back. Lentil had surgery to correct his cleft palate but still has a cleft lip, and his “different” appearance has led him to volunteer with a program where kids with certain conditions meet animals with the same conditions. ”It’s sort of a pet therapy where people can relate a little bit more with those pets that have gone through things that they’ve gone through as well,” said Dr. Jesse Taylor, a plastic surgeon at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, who consulted on Lentil’s palate surgery.

Lentil is a serious rock star at the hospital and has already visited with hundreds of children. Pfeiffer, 14, who has a genetic condition called Saethre-Chotzen syndrome which affects the shape of the head and face, told CNN, ”He doesn’t look like, you know, a regular dog. So that kind of makes him special, so it probably makes kids who have something that I have, makes them feel special.” So wonderful. Video above! [CNN]

Gibson, The French Bulldog Frightened By Its Own Farts
Gibson Is Bewildered By His Own Farts

I believe this video of of Gibson, the French bulldog who appears to be bewildered by the flatulence coming out of his own ass, counts as a Mercury retrograde reward. It certainly lifts my spirits considering I’ve often felt the exact same way: deeply confused. Yes, about farts. But also about other things. I’m sure Gibson understands what I mean. I’ve often dreamed of having a pet who understood me on a deep level like that. Since my dog Mandy passed away in the late ’90, I haven’t had a dog connection like that. Gibson, be mine. I don’t care that you’re a gassy canine. We will fart together and be confused about life. [Videogum]

Pets Dressed As People Who Look Like Their Pets

Pets dressed as people who look like their pets

Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani was struck by the way some pet owners managed to look like their pets, and vice versa. Are we drawn to animals that in some way resemble or reflect our inner and outer lives (and if so, what does Colonel Mustard say about me?). Magnani did some swift Photoshopping and created this portrait series, titled Underdogs, which explores the hidden connections between people and the pets we choose. Keep reading »

Pug Party: 10 Random, Adorable Facts About Pugs

My neighbors have an 8-week-old pug puppy that is perhaps the cutest creature who has ever graced this Earth. Right now its head is a bit too big for its body, so as it toddles around the yard it usually tips over, and then just starts chewing on whatever is in the immediate vicinity of where its mouth landed. Oh, and its name is BELUSHI. Seriously, I can’t even handle how cute this dog is. Whenever I see it come out in the yard I just stare at it moaning like Tina from “Bob’s Burgers” until my boyfriend is like, “Seriously, you have to stop doing that.” I wouldn’t be surprised if this dog takes out a restraining order against me at some point.

My love for Belushi made me want to write something pug-related, and I was reading up about these little dogs I thought, Hey, why not a list of fun pug facts?! Because sometimes I like to pretend I write for Highlights magazine instead of The Frisky. Ready for a pug fact party? Here we go! Keep reading »
