The Daily Squee: A Supercut Of Puppies Learning To Howl

The Daily Squee: You Need This Video Of A Puppy Chewing On Stairs

This Is Serious: Corgis Could Become Endangered! (Plus, 15 Corgi GIFs To Soothe You)

I have dire news. According to the Britain Kennel Club's breeder's association, corgis may soon become an endangered dog breed. So not okay. What would the world do without our most beloved smiley little munchkin dogs? I don't think Tumblr could continue to function without corgi GIFs.

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…

This Pug’s “Wrecking Ball” Halloween Costume Is On Point

13 Signs Your Dog Really Loves You (As Demonstrated By My Dog Lucca)

Last night, I was feeling weirdly insecure. Not about the way I look. Not about my job performance. Not about a stupid boy. No, I was feeling insecure about my dog Lucca and whether or not she truly loves me. I like to think Lucca channels her thoughts through me for me to speak aloud and those…

This Dog Bears An Uncanny Resemblance To Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin is sort of like the small-boned Chuck Norris of world leaders — think an unassuming Renaissance man who will straight-up end you. (If you aren't well-versed in the art of Putin, might I point you in the direction of his 8 most ridiculous publicity stunts?) The man has hi…

Aaron Paul Claims He Can Tell A Dog’s Sex By Petting It — But He Has Yet To Touch Lucca

Aaron Paul is best known for his acting, most notably as Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad," but he has other talents. On last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the actor (who's giving me a beard boner) demonstrated his innate, God-given ability to correctly guess the gender of a dog simply by petting it. While I'm impressed, I…

It's posing a threat to the area's biodiversity. "Even a small cat…
