I had no sooner finished dry-heaving over my friend’s tale of the ordeal involved in getting her dog’s anal glands expressed, when I stumbled upon yet another article—written by a psychologist named Dr. Suzanne Phillps, Psy.D—extolling the benefits of treating your partner as you do your pet.

A kitten in West Virginia is literally a freak of nature. It was born with two faces. Two Face, as it was aptly named, has four eyes, two noses, and two mouths, and can nurse from its mother using either mouth. The kitten looks a little bizarre at first glance, but it’s still…

“For me, the bulldog is the ugliest thing I can put my hands on. He’s got to have bloodshot eyes. The right kind of bloodshot eyes, like on a Friday night after you’ve been out socializing. He’s got to have that drooling look on his face, and then a little slobber coming down. That i…
