National Pet Week: Make Us Want To Kidnap Your Animal Because Of Its Cuteness


Meet Our Office Dog, Lucca from streeter seidell on Vimeo.

It’s National Pet Week! In honor of all things cute and mushy and wrinkly and wet-nosed, we’d like you to send us pictures of your pets (email pictures to tips@thefrisky.com). At the end of the week we’ll post the ten most squeal-inducing so your friends, neighbors, and the strangers on this here interweb can “ooh” and “ahh” over your pets’ adorableness. Since it would be totally unfair for me to include my dog Lucca among the top ten, I will just post this video of her when she was a puppy to inspire you. Keep reading »

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. Now they just have to figure out whether this actually increases the risk of a UTI, so don’t start blaming your furry friend quite yet. [Reuters]
  • In a South African sex survey, men making more money were most likely to use sex toys — 51 percent used them in the highest income bracket, compared with 29 percent on average. If money doesn’t buy love, it can certainly buy some lovemaking accouterments. [The Times (S. Africa)]
  • There isn’t enough university housing for French students, so many of them continue living at home while attending school, which can make hooking up a little complicated. The French students’ union UNEF is campaigning for the government to construct more student housing with racy posters that feature a young couple getting it on in a bed with a parent sleeping on either side of them.

    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 a Pomeranian or a little Yorkie. Because if he’s secure enough in his sexuality to carry around a frou-frou little dog like that, that is a guy who’s a keeper. Never go out with a guy with a beagle. I know they’re cute, cute, cute, but they’re dumb, dumb, dumb, and they have no attention span, so you’re with the guy and he might not know what to do – the next night, you have to tell him all over again.”

    Crap. My dog Lucca is a mutt, but we (Note: That is, myself and my boyfriend, who parents her with me — and yes I said parent. Deal with it.) are pretty sure she’s probably a mix of Italian Greyhound (known for loving the attention of people), Jack Russell (hyper, much?), and, gulp, Beagle. This begs the question: If a man owns a Beagle with a woman, does that mean they both suck in bed? Catherine and I discuss the issue, after the jump. Keep reading »
