Alanis Morissette May Or May Not Have Been The Victim Of A Dognapping

  • Alanis Morrisette claims a housekeeper that she fired is holding her pet dog, Circus, hostage and refusing to give him back unless she gets cash money. The housekeeper claims Alanis and her hubby abandoned the dog. Just give the stupid dog back! Stealing other people’s pets is not cool. [TMZThe Hollywood Gossip]

Cute Puppy’s Tongue Slobbers All Over Cute Baby’s Face

Kiss, Kiss

Not much is rough about being a cute baby … except when the family pets want to lick your face. And lick your face. And lick your face some more. This poor kiddo is not feeling it, but people off-camera (Mom and Dad, perhaps) keep coaching the bulldog puppy to go to town. Don’t think they didn’t know they had a viral video on their hands! I want to go give this poor child a bath. [YouTube]

Blind Couple Marries After Their Guide Dogs Become Inseparable

Blind Couple Marries After Their Guide Dogs Become Inseparable
A Lifetime Of Double Dates Ahead!

Prepare the Kleenex, for this is maybe the cutest story ever. Back in 2012, Claire Johnson and Mark Gaffey, who are both blind, met after they each signed up to be paired with seeing-eye companions at a guide dog training program in the UK. For two weeks, they worked extensively with their Labrador retrievers, Venice and Rodd, and during that time, the dogs developed a deep fondness for each other. “The trainers said that it was the romance of the course, the two dogs,” says Claire in the video above. “They’d always pull towards one another, ignore all the other dogs.” Venice and Rodd’s burgeoning relationship led Claire and Mark to spend more and more time together on doggie playdates, and sure enough, soon romance began to blossom between them as well. Last weekend, Claire and Mark were married, with their dogs/matchmakers acting as ring bearers during the ceremony.

“I have no doubt that our guide dogs brought us together and helped me find my true love,” says Claire. “Much like our two guide dogs, we really are best friends and soul mates.” Cutest foursome ever. [The Dodo]

The American Beagle Outfitters Dog Line Is The Cutest Thing You’ve Ever Seen

American Eagle Outfitters has developed the “first-ever matching clothing line for dogs and their owners” and while we would normally roll our eyes at any attempts to dress like your dog, we are genuinely smitten. “American Beagle Outfitters” (HAHA) released a lookbook featuring pups of all breeds decked out in AEO gear and it is is beyond adorable. The line is set to hit stores later this spring — unless the whole thing is a big April Fools ploy, because, I mean, it’s almost too cute to be true. Either way, shoppers who sign up for the waiting list will receive a discount on purchases and a dollar from each order will be donated to the ASPCA.

Check out the lookbook’s canine models (and weigh in on which outfit Amelia should buy for Lucca)! [Duhhhhh, the puppy Baja hoodie worn by Ace (above) FTW! -- Amelia] [Fuck off, Mom. -- Lucca] [Fashionista]

This Is Not Funny. What Did You Do With My Treat?

Some call it animal abuse, others call it MAGIC. Either way, the confused pups in this video by magician Jose Ahonen have no idea where their treats went. Where are the treats?!?! [YouTube]

A Man Bought A Dog This Weekend That Cost More Than Your House

A Chinese businessman (not the man pictured above, however) broke records this weekend when he bought a puppy for almost $2 million — more than anyone has ever paid for a pet dog. What the hell is this costly canine? A 200-pound Tibetan Mastiff, who will grow up to look something like a giant fluffy teddy bear. Hey, if the price is right. Keep reading »

Rolling In The Deep

Sophie the English bulldog puppy has a total grasp on the “roll over” command … and like the Energizer Bunny, she just keeps going and going and going. Wow, I wish I was as exited about anything as she is to roll down a green, grassy hill. Roll on, Soph! [YouTube]

The Daily Squee: Olympian Gus Kenworthy Finally Brings Home His Rescued Sochi Puppies

Gus Kenworthy Sochi Puppies
Even Better Than A Silver Medal!

Freestyle skiier Gus Kenworthy rescuing a litter of stray puppies off the streets of Sochi was one of our favorite stories to come out of this year’s Winter Olympics. And now, after a ton of red tape, bureaucratic wrangling, uncertainty, and a little bit of tragedy, those puppies have finally arrived at their new home. Kenworthy’s friend Robin Macdonald stayed in Sochi almost a month after the Olympics ended to ensure the dogs would be cared for and accompany the brood on their journey home. Unfortunately, one of the puppies became so sick and malnourished in a Sochi shelter that it passed away before it could make the trip. Luckily, the rest of the dogs (three puppies, their mom, and another stray) are now settled in Denver, healthy and happy. Kenworthy, Macdonald, and a few of the rescued pooches made an appearance on The Today show this morning to share the rest of this crazy and heartwarming saga. Kenworthy brought home a silver medal from Sochi, but he also saved the lives of 5 dogs who almost certainly would have died otherwise. He has a lot to be proud of. [Today]

“First Sniff:” A Parody Of That Strangers Kissing Video, But With Dogs

20 Dogs Sniffing Butts For The First Time

That very moving video of 20 strangers kissing for the first time turned out to be a clothing ad, and the kissers turned out to actors and models. I can absolutely guarantee that this parody video made by the website Mother London contains no ulterior motives or hidden agendas. “First Sniff” is just 20 dogs, sniffing each other’s butts for the first time. Plain and simple. Like “First Kiss,” some of the initial interactions are awkward, but once some of the pooches get past the butt sniffing stage … whoa. Get ready to have all the feelings.
