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.

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.

“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…

Here is a puppy chewing on stairs, because who doesn’t need to see a puppy chewing on the stairs? Nobody, that’s who. The stairs must taste pretty good because that little guy just won’t quit. My favorite part is when he takes a break and yawns because, well, chewing on things is pretty darn exhausting. [Jezebel]…

Coupled But Don’t Have Kids? You Might Be DINK Or A DILDO

In this video, Lauren Cook and Kurt Braunohler explain how adult people don’t have to be “baby people” — they can be DINKS (double income, no kids) and DILDOS (double income, large dog owners). It’s annoying to bubble baby a baby, but putting a large dog in a Baby Bjorn that’s CUTE. So, if you…
