Swoon: US Olympic Skier Gus Kenworthy Is Rescuing Stray Dogs In Sochi

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new favorite Olympic athlete: Gus Kenworthy. Not only is the 22-year-old skier super talented on the slopes (and in possession of a pair of adorable pink cheeks that I kind of want to pinch — does that make me old?), he’s also a lifelong animal lover who has been using his downtime in Sochi to rescue stray puppies. Total dreamboat status, right? Kenworthy lost his beloved dog Mack just last year, so when a friend in Sochi texted him about a litter of strays living underneath a media tent, Kenworthy rushed over to see how he could help. After locating the puppies and tweeting some seriously cute photos, Kenworthy set to work figuring out how to bring the homeless pups back to the states with him. Keep reading »

Blow Dryers Are Scary

I would have enjoyed this video if it were just a poodle and the baby. That’s enough squeeness for me. But add a blow dryer to the mix and you’ve got all sorts of excitement, like fluff blowing in the wind and a poodle’s protective instincts kicking in. [Daily Picks & Flicks]

We're crazy for pugs! Here's why. Read More »

Today in “Things That Make You Go Awwwww“: the story of Xander, a little pug from Klamath Falls, Oregon, who lost his eyes in an accident at age 1. Xander was living at an animal shelter when he charmed his way into the hearts of two shelter volunteers, who couldn’t resist taking him home and making him part of their family. It wasn’t long before his new owners, Marcie and Rodney Beedy, realized their pet had a special gift for lifting people’s spirits wherever he went. They enrolled Xander in American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen Program, and after three weeks of training, he became a certified therapy dog. Despite his lack of eyesight, Xander is thriving in his new role, always seeming to know exactly what kind of nurturing people need, whether he’s at a school, hospital, or nursing home. “A lot of times he’ll hear a child crying at an event and he’s bolted several times, at least 500 feet over to this child to comfort them,” says Marcie, who wears a bell around her leg to let Xander know she’s near. Check out a couple adorable pics of Xander in action after the jump, and follow his mission of love and comfort on Facebook! Keep reading »

I feel kind of bad for laughing at him, but there’s really nothing cuter than a golden retriever puppy.  [Except a Lucca puppy. -- Lucca] [Jezebel]

Dealbreaker: He Kicked My Dog

I walked into a posh, new restaurant in Alphabet City and asked a guy in a black suit (amidst other guys in ratty chinos and un-tucked oxford shirts) about my reservation. Like a gentleman, he laughed and explained in a sexy Aussie accent that he wore a suit because he was a sharp dresser, not because he was a host at this restaurant. Blushing cheeks, a good laugh and I had Jack’s phone number.

Jack the Australian had cool, blue eyes and black hair, and if I need to say more than that, I can. He was an air traffic controller. An extra cool, rom-com worthy job. He quickly racked up bonus points; funny in a dorky way, up for anything, including flea markets and whiffle ball, and actually used dish soap. He even had a continual Scrabble game going with his elderly neighbor. Keep reading »

Man Recreates Romantic Movie Scenes With A Dog, And It’s Not Quite As Creepy As It Sounds

It all started as a joke, as so many brilliant performance art projects do. Chris Naka thought it might be funny to recreate a romantic movie scene with his boss’ dog, Wrigley, and snap a photo to entertain his coworkers. Who could have guessed that Naka and Wrigley would have such amazing chemistry that the man and the pooch would start spending almost every lunch hour posing in various iconic embraces? So far the duo has recreated scenes from “Ghost,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Brokeback Mountain,” and many more. Click through to check out some of our favorites! And Lucca, start practicing your “I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy” speech now, because I know what I’m doing on my next trip to NYC… [People]

The Daily Squee: Dog Reacts To Seeing Deployed Soldier Owner On Skype For The First Time

As much as we love videos of dogs being reunited with their owners returning from a deployment, sometimes a simple screen shot is all you need. Airman Justin Jones captured the moment that his dog Kiba first saw his face on Skype after he was deployed in 2011. And the best part? Justin and Kiba have since been reunited in person. I can’t even imagine the excitement of that moment! [Reddit]

Dog Vogue Is The Fashion Magazine I’ve Been Waiting For

Vogue never fails to make me feel fat, poor, wrinkled, and frumpy. Dog Vogue, on the other hand, makes me feel like doing a happy dance. Dog Vogue was created by photographer Sophie Gamand, who had “acclaimed pet couturier” (yes, that’s a thing) Anthony Rubio dress a group of chihuahua models in couture outfits and snapped pictures of the surprisingly elegant results. Check out all the high-fashion canine editorials at Striking Paws.

Warning: Justin Bieber Bought A Bulldog Puppy

Normally when a celebrity adopts an animal (or, um, child) we are happy knowing they have now entered Fat City. Except, that is, when the adoptive parent is Justin Bieber. We have only just gotten over his irresponsible and inhumane treatment of his pet monkey and his pet hamster, both of which he abandoned.

Well, now he’s gone and bought a bulldog puppy (above). Keep reading »
