Girl Talk: The Bay Of (Guinea) Pigs

It took months of begging, pleading, bribing, and promises to convince my parents to get me my first guinea pig. We lived on a 38-acre farm with dogs, cats, and chickens, but I yearned for a pet of my very own, a pet who would entertain me and understand me, a pet who would impre…

Just A Corgi Getting Vacuumed

Some people give their pets baths, others comb their animals. But corgi dog Corbin Dallas Multipass gets vacuumed. He seems to really love it, too. I love Corgis because I think they are kind of nature's comedy, with their short stump legs and huge ears, but maybe that's just me. [Corbinism]…

Sorry, But There’s No Poop Fairy, People
