Different breeds of dogs have different body types. Chihuahuas are naturally petite while pugs tend to be on the stockier side. I can’t even keep going with this intro because it makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time. What I’m trying to tell you is that the first doggy/owner fat camp has opened in the UK. A company called NuBeginnings is offering a joint dog-human boot camp, where “overweight owners and their furry friends can attend a week-long retreat to get in shape together.” Because you need your dog there for moral support. Or does your dog need you? Keep reading »
Colonel Meow is revered among Internet cat obsessives for his perpetually smug scowl, and now he has even more reason to sneer at his adoring public.
Guinness World Records has officially recognized the two-year-old Himalayan-Persian crossbreed as the cat with the longest fur.

Sure, Syria might have released chemical weapons on its own people this week. BUT I WANNA HEAR MORE ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE’S NEW PUPPY GAAAAAAH! Here’s President Obama in an exclusive interview with CNN, talking about the new puppy Sunny (a Portuguese water dog like their four-year-old dog, Bo) and her accidents around the White House.

It’s every man’s worst nightmare to wake up from a nap and find out one of his balls is missing. For an anonymous 39-year-old man in Trumann, Arkansas, it was bloody reality. The man, who is paralyzed from the waist down, fell asleep naked on Monday. When he woke up, his recently adopted “small, white, fluffy” dog was between his thighs with blood on his muzzle and the man felt “burning pain” in his mid-section. The pooch had “eaten one of his testicles,” according to the police report, although it’s not clear why he favored his master’s sweaty balls instead over Beggin’ Strips. Perhaps he was inspired by paco, that species of toothy testicle-eating fish. The doggie has since been euthanized and is being tested for rabies. His owner is lucky he woke when he did before he lost both testes. All the more reasons to vaccinate your pets, folks. [CBS Local] [KAIT8] [Image of bad dog via Shutterstock]
