My pup Lucca presents herself as fearless, telling dogs twice her size who’s boss, but the one thing that sends her cowering in fear is thunder and lightening. A summer storm — and we’ve had a few of them so far — sends her into a panic, seeking shelter under the bed, in my bathtub, or behind the row of maxi dresses in my closet. It’s so sad! But a friend recently suggested that I buy the Thundershirt, a, well, garment you put on your dog when its spooked by thunder, fireworks, or any other situation that stresses it out. The Thundershirt purports to use “gentle pressure” that calms your dog down. In fact, the sort was developed thanks to the research of experts like Dr. Temple Grandin, who made her own “squeeze machine” to help calm the anxiety she felt as a result of her autism. (More about Temple’s work here — she is one of my heroes.) A number of friends have used the Thundershirt on their dogs with excellent results, so I can’t wait to try it on Lucca.

Sure, dogs are adorable and everything. But just because you think they’re cute doesn’t mean you want to date them. And unless you’re an avid dog lover to begin with, those sweet, floppy ears won’t seem so sweet when you have to bring a pooper scooper on your romantic outings and you find yourself covered in fur at Monday morning meetings. Here’s why you should put your dog park daydreaming to rest… Keep reading »

A lot of celebs say that they love their dogs, but Amanda Seyfried really loves her mutt Finn — as in, more paparazzi shots exist of Amanda with Finn than without him. Last year, she even told OK! that she didn’t have time for dating because she just wanted to spend time with her dog, which I think is totally respectable, no? To be honest, I one-hundred-percent understand why Finn is the only man in her life: he is so handsome. Look at that lustrous coat! [Photo: FameFlynet]

Confessions Of A Woman Who Won’t Date A Male Cat Owner

This is, in most part, a response to Brian Donovan, the man who made confessions about being a male cat owner over at Thought Catalog. Let me start by saying, Brian, you sound like an incredibly kind and thoughtful guy. I’m glad you had the courage to come out of the closet as a male cat owner. I respect you and your honesty. But I must unburden myself.

I am one of the girls you speak of, the kind who cocks her head sideways and looks at you as if you’ve just revealed that you were a fat kid (so was I!) when you tell me you have a cat. You’re right, I do see male cat ownership as a “preexisting condition.” One not conducive to me dating you. But not exactly for the reasons you’re thinking. I don’t find you creepy or feminine (or, I’m sure I wouldn’t if we met in person). There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you whatsoever. It’s not you, it’s ME.

My friends seem to find my dislike of cats humorous. They joke that I will end up marrying a man with tons of cats and proudly scoop litter for all eternity. Let the record stand: That will never happen. Here. We. Go. Deep breath. The reasons why I am thoroughly incompatible with male cat owners … Keep reading »

Who Will Emerge Victorious At The Humpy Awards?

Okay, Internet. Everyone else can stop now. It’s time to go home.  I have found the number one most f**ked up and depraved thing on the web: a clip from the first-ever Humpy Awards, a competition in Georgia where dogs and their owners compete in humping. Yes, you read that least sentence correctly. Keep reading »
