Pucker Up, Pooches, With The School Of French Kissing For Dogs

The School of French Kissing For Dogs would gross me out if I didn’t see Amelia smooching her pup Lucca on a regular basis. (You know she eats garbage off the street, right?) [Lucca does not use tongue ever. -- Editor] How soon until PETA busts a nut over this UCB skit? It’s comedy, guys! And it looks like doggies got peanut butter out of it. And, you know, some lovin’.

Sorry, But There’s No Poop Fairy, People

I am sorry to break it to you, kiddo. When the dog poop disappeared from the backyard? That was your mom. And when the doo doo vanished from the sidewalk? That was your dad. They only told you the Poop Fairy existed to see the glimmer of joy in a young one’s eye, to expand childhood ever-so-slightly further. Really, the Poop Fairy was just a ruse just like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

All this is to say, please clean up after your dog. [Jefferson County Sheriff's Office] Keep reading »

Bradley Cooper Rocks Dreadlocks, Holds A Baby Tiger

What’s even more exciting than a famous lady with cornrows? A famous dude rocking dreadlocks. Here, Bradley Cooper shows off the hairstyle he’s sporting in his next movie. Oh and did I mention that he’s fallen in love on the set? His new squeeze is named Anastasia and she’s quite a bit younger—two-and-a-half years months old, to be exact. Relax, she’s that baby tiger he’s holding. “He just took her and she immediately fell in love with him,” says Anastasia’s trainer. “He has some kind of an animal connection inside of him that’s fairly obvious.” Growl.

Jennifer Aniston Remembers Dog With A Tattoo — Would You?

Jennifer Aniston debuted her first tattoo this weekend, cursive script on the side of her foot spelling out “Norman.” Norman was Aniston’s dog who died in May at the age of 15. I think this is such a lovely tribute. I have long thought that eventually the only other ink I would get (besides the vaguely regrettable Chinese characters on my back) would be my dog Lucca’s name. I love her and want her with me always, just as Norman is now always walking with Jen. Okay, now I am tearing up. RIP Norman! Is a tattoo of a pet’s name something you would ever get?

10 Dumb Luxury Items For Your Beloved Dog

You know what dogs really need? A bowl of dog food that makes its own gravy. A tennis ball to slobber on. Some shots to keep the worms away. But most of all, the one thing dogs need is constant love.

You know what dogs don’t need? Everything on this list of dumb luxury items for your pooch.

Yes, all of these ridiculous bowwow baubles are real. And yes, all of these canine luxuries will be used as fodder to incite the coming revolution. Dogs are not fashion accessories, and if you’re decking Fido out in frivolous finery, then you are dumb. Also: you’re either rich or bellybutton-deep in credit card debt. But mostly dumb.

Puppie Pandas And Tiger Dogs, Oh My!

Is it possible for a pet to have an identity crisis? Behold, a pair of dogs who think they are pandas, thanks to a little hairdye from their owners. Normally, I’d say this was cruel … but do you see how freaking cute they are?

After the jump, a dog who thinks he’s a tiger. Keep reading »

Olivia Wilde Cuddles With Her “Only Boyfriend”

Over the weekend, Olivia Wilde tweeted this photo of herself cuddling with her dog, alongside the caption, “Ok I know I’m not supposed to tweet sexy photos (damn you Wiener (sic)!) but here is me and my (only!) boyfriend in bed.” Way to kill two birds with one stone, Olivia: (1) deflecting rumors that you’re dating Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake and (2) making us all say a collective, “awwwww.” [People] Keep reading »

Trouble, Leona Helmsly’s $12 Million Pup, Dies

Normally, I get sad when I hear about pets dying. But something about the news that Leona Helmsley’s beloved Maltese, Trouble, had kicked the doggy bucket made me happy. Maybe now they’ll be reunited in the afterlife?

Trouble, is of course, the dog that real estate magnate Leona Helmsley left a boatload of money to when she passed away in 2007. To be exact, Leona willed $12 million to Trouble, though a judge later reduced the amount to $2 million. Keep reading »

Would You Have Your Pets Be A Part Of Your Wedding, A La Miranda Lambert?

The self-shot venison dinner, the cowboy boots for the bridesmaids, the wearing of her mom’s wedding dress, the fishing honeymoon—yes, we have been thoroughly obsessed with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s sweet downhome wedding. But now a new detail has reeled me in even further. Apparently, Miranda and Blake were adamant about their dogs—chihuahua Cher, chihuahua-pug Delta, and terrier Delilah—being a big part of their nuptials. The three pups walked down the aisle with one of Miranda’s boot-clad bridesmaids. The doggies even got their own rhinestoned bandanas and collars for the occasion. “They were rock stars! Total rock stars, ” says Miranda’s publicist/wedding planner. “They were tiny little representatives, but they got a lot of laughs and attention. They were right in the big middle of everything … [Miranda] wanted a place where everybody would be comfortable, would have a great time, just feel at home and her dogs could be a part of it.”

This has me wondering—would you have your pets be a big part of your wedding? Keep reading »

On Losing A Pet

On Monday, my parents put to sleep our 14-year-old Wheaton terrier, Timmy. This photo is exactly what Timmy looked like — i.e., sooo cute. My mom is really the one broken up by Timmy’s death; with all her kids moved out of the house, he became like another child (albeit one who never aged past being an impatient, demanding toddler!). I feel a twinge of sadness about Timmy’s death, because I hate to think of animals suffering in pain. But I know he was spoiled rotten during his 14 years in the Wakeman family and had a good life.
