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

the daily squee
"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]

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!

It’s Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time

It's Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time
Run, Beagles, Runnnnnn!!!!

I am so glad I worked from home today and am not wearing my meticulously applied black liquid eyeliner, because it would be completely ruined and streaming halfway down my face after watching this video. The Beagle Freedom Project is dedicated to rescuing the adorable breed from a life spent in cages as test subjects for laboratory research. Beagles are the most popular breed for such experiments because of their sweet, docile nature, and are often bred and sold by commercial breeders to scientific research labs for such purposes. The Beagle Freedom Project rescues those sweet pups and finds them loving forever homes. In the video above, watch as nine recently rescued beagles are brought outside and experience the freedom to run and frolic for the very first time. I’m simultaneously shedding tears of sadness and joy. RUN, SWEET BEAGLE BABIES, RUNNNN!!!!! And if you’re interested in more information on the Beagle Freedom Project, including adopting a beagle into your own family, click here. [via The Daily Dot]

Watch These Smiley Dogs Jamming To Pharrell’s “Happy”

Dream Life Status

I have seen a lot of animal videos in my time on this earth, but none of them have made me smile bigger than these dogs frolicking around in time with Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Didga the skateboarding cat even makes an appearance amongst all the canines. Pharrell should have put more overjoyed puppies in his original music video, because what’s more cheerful than that? And where do I show up to play on the beach with dogs all day? Sign me up!
