Be My Pet: I Would Like This Pomsky, Thank You

A Pomsky is an irresistible blend of a tiny Pomeranian and a big, beautiful Husky pup. I don’t want to think of the mating implications of that, because it sounds rather painful, but I love the mini-Husky result. This guy is perfectly pocket sized!

The 10 Coolest Fictional Pets

You might think you have the greatest pet in the world, but that’s probably because you don’t watch much TV.

Girl Talk: I’m Terrified Of Losing My Dog

“I do worry about you,” wrote my mom, upon watching the first “Ask A Single Dog Owner” video a couple weeks ago. “I think you should really think about getting another dog as Lucca gets older.” Lucca is my 6-year-old dog, who I’ve had since she was eight weeks old. My mom’s concern, her urge…

This Guy’s Cat Can Ride A Bike Better Than You

This is why I will always love Philadelphia: Because only in Philadelphia will a dude ride around on his bike with a kitten on his back. This is YouTube user RudiElias86, and in addition to being totally adorable, he’s also forged a special bond with his little kitten MJ, who goes everywhere with him. [Philebrity]…

Be My Pet: Fanged Dwarf Porcupine Dinosaur

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Pegomastax africanus, a newly discovered dinosaur about the size of a house cat, with self-sharpening fangs and porcupine-like quills. It looks vicious, but scientists believe Pego (that’s its nickname from now on, OK?) was an herbivore who used those fearsome teeth for nothing more than foraging yummy plants and defending it…

4 Ways Owning A Pet Prepares You For A Relationship

It’s time to throw those ideas about crazy cat lady spinsters to the curb. The fact of the matter is that owning a pet—whether it’s a dog, cat, bunny or goldfish (okay, maybe not a goldfish)—is actually the best training ground that exists for a relationship with another human. Don’t believe me? Consider this:…

Admit It: If You Had A Kitten As Cute As Kim Kardashian’s, You Would Carry It With You Everywhere, Too

Beyoncé does not want to be friends with Kim Kardashian, so Kim went and got herself a pet kitten. I see what you did there! Fortunately, it’s a cute kitten  — as cute as Choupette, even, and coming from me, that’s saying something.

But I don’t believe that Mercy, the Teacup Persian she…

Girl Talk: My Dog Is A Cockblock

My dog Kerbey is a quasi-Internet celebrity. With his cartoonish tiny legs, large torso, giant bat ears and confused eyes, any picture I put up of him on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram is guaranteed to get mountains of likes, retweets or exclamations of, “OMG you have the best dog EVERRRRR.” If Kerbey just lived hi…

Meet The Cat Of Your Dreams On Catroulette

Remember the weird social experiment that was Chatroulette? It’s mostly populated with dudes who want to show their wangs to strangers, which is why we’re way more into the animal version of Chatroulette, appropriately titled Catroulette. Catroulette shows you tons of live video feeds of cats doing exactly what cats do — scratching themselves, grooming…

Is This Animal Abuse? Or Muppet Abuse? Or Photoshop (I Hope)?

I’m trying to figure out why someone would do this to their dog and what PETA/the ghost of Jim Henson would say. The doggie has Miss Piggy on one side and Kermit on the other. I almost feel embarrassed for this poor pup! Please someone tell me this is a Photoshop job? [I Am Bored]…

10 Dumb Things About Having A Dog

They’re cute, lovable and always happy to see you. But they’re also expensive, moody, and chew all your stuff. No, not grandma!
