Celebrity Selfies Are So Much Better With Puppies In Them

Frivolous celeb selfies might actually do some good in the world, if Dallas Pets Alive (DPA) has anything to say about it. The nonprofit aims to make no-kill shelters the norm in Dallas, TX, and to find homes for rescue dogs. Their oh-so-brilliant marketing geniuses have gotten into the habit of #muttbombing, or reposting celebs&#8217…

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…

The Daily Squee: Watch A Poodle Protect His Baby Sister From The Evil Blow Dryer

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]…

Watch This: Man Makes Sweet Coming Out Video Through The Eyes Of His Dog

Ivan Cruz spent most of his life praying that one day he’d wake up and not be gay anymore. Instead, one day he woke up with a realization that was even more surprising: he felt ready to come out. After telling his mom, sister, and friends, he decided to make a video about his coming…

The Daily Squee: Watch This Puppy Try To Rescue His Own Reflection

This pup has looked in the mirror for the first time and he is so confused about what he sees! It’s almost as if he’s worried about setting his “twin” free! I feel kind of bad for laughing at him, but there’s really nothing cuter than a golden retriever puppy.  [Except a Lucca puppy. —

Prepare To Aww: It’s The 2014 Puppy Bowl Starting Lineup!

They’re really stepping up their game for Puppy Bowl X. There won’t be a mass wedding officiated by Queen Latifah (as far as I know), but there will be aerial coverage done by some sort of fluffy rodents, penguin cheerleaders and a half-time performance by Keyboard Cat!

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…

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…

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

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…

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.

A New Documentary Explores The World Of Extreme Dog Grooming

You’ve probably seen pictures from the Creative Pet Grooming World Championships, that takes place annually in Hershey, PA, and thought, A dog that’s styled to look like a Muppet? MORE PLEASE!

There is one nightmare that every New Yorker is terrified of experiencing: falling (or getting pushed) onto the subway tracks. For Cecil Williams, 61, that nightmare became a reality on Tuesday when he fainted while standing on the 125th street platform and fell down onto the tracks.

But, see, Cecil Williams is blind.

“You Shall Not Pass, Dog” Captures The Best Of Cat Vs. Dog Dynamics

Pets! They’re weird. Weirdest of all, perhaps, is the unspoken dynamic between cats and dogs. Believed to despise one another, so much so that there is an animated movie about it (and a sequel!), it’s really much less of an outright hatred and more just an implied narrative of canine fear. Most cats don’t eve…
