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…

Frisky Rant: I Will Love My Dog Forever, Even After I Have Kids, Thanks

The first few months that I had my dog Lucca were rough. I adored her, make no mistake, but training a two-month-old puppy is no joke. I would set my alarm for the middle of the night so I could walk her, as her tiny bladder wasn’t yet prepared to hold it all night. And while I…

Ask Me Anything: Ask A Single Dog Owner!

A few weeks ago, I asked readers to submit questions they had for me about what it’s like being a single dog owner. This is the first video in a series in which I, with Lucca by my side, answer some of those questions. (If I didn’t get to yours, don’t worry, I will!) To…

Bitches Over Bros: Why Your Dog Is The Best Boyfriend You’ll Ever Have

It’s every girls worst nightmare that she’ll grow old with seventy cats and no husband. While it’s completely reasonable to want to avoid this feline fate, the opposite is true of dogs. Having recently adopted a puppy, I’ve found reason to believe that having a furry friend is better than having a boyfriend. They may…

Lucca (And The Rest Of Us) Would Like To Apologize For The Technical Difficulties

Dear Frisky Readers,

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, The Frisky has been down all morning. I’ve noticed because my mom has been yelling at her computer for the last three hours. It is really getting in the way of my nap. Anyway, The Frisky was down for so long due to problems with Amazon’…

Happy Snowpocalyptic Hump Day!

You may have heard, but the Northeast is having what some are calling a “snowpocalypse” (though I prefer “Blizzardpalooza” because it sounds more positive!) — schools are closed, employers have given workers a “snow day,” and, like, people are melting down. But not my awesome dog Lucca. She loves the snow. She also loves to…

Pick Up Your Doggie’s Doo-Doo In Style

I’m sure several of the fashionable, dog-owning ladies here at the Frisky would like to look more stylish while picking up after their doggies, say, when Lucca drops her load on the sidewalks of Manhattan. It’s so unsightly! And what if a hot dude came along while you were scooping your pooch’s poopies? Now there’…

The Daily Squeeze: Infections, Housing Shortages, and Incomes

It’s possible that your pet is the one giving you UTIs. A study at the University of Minnesota found that E. coli strains, including the ones that cause urinary tract infections, can easily pass between people and their pets.

Can You Judge Man’s Sexual Prowess By Man’s Best Friend?

She may play an awesome bitch on TV, but Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Susie Essman told Animal Fair magazine that you can tell how awesome a man is in bed based on his bitch — that is, his dog.

“You want a guy that’s good in bed? Find a guy with a Shih Tzu or…
