The Daily Squee: A Supercut Of Puppies Learning To Howl

This compilation of teeny tiny puppies trying out their shaky little howls KILLED ME. I watched it 50 times and now I am dead. Send flowers to my parents, and then hit play to join me in my cuteness-induced early grave. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]…

The Daily Squee: You Need This Video Of A Puppy Chewing On Stairs

Here is a puppy chewing on stairs, because who doesn’t need to see a puppy chewing on the stairs? Nobody, that’s who. The stairs must taste pretty good because that little guy just won’t quit. My favorite part is when he takes a break and yawns because, well, chewing on things is pretty darn exhausting. [Jezebel]…

The photos released of a gaggle of painfully adorable baby pandas in China this week has left me a little more obsessed than usual with all things baby and furry.

30 Adorable Puppy GIFs Sound Pretty Good Right About Now

It has been a tough 24 hours. I would never be so glib as to suggest anything as silly and fluffy as a puppy GIF could ease the pain of those suffering in the aftermath of yesterday’s attack in Boston, and our thoughts and prayers are with them. But I thought all of you could…

Happy Puppy Easter!

Why do they even bother with bunnies on Easter? Unless, English Angora rabbits were the official Easter bunnies, then I would understand. But they’re not. Regular rabbits are, which aren’t nearly as fluffy in the face. I’m not a “squee-er.” In fact, I hate that word, but you can’t deny puppies with bunny ears. You…

Just 42 Saint Bernards Hanging Out

This is a video of 42 Saint Bernards — and one child — hanging out in the woods. The video comes from a breeder in British Columbia who captured her dogs out for a jaunt in the woods. It’s kind of like the “Being John Malkovich” of dog videos, except with way, way way more…

9 Happy Hanukkah Doggies

These pups really put the “happy” in Hanukkah. The yarmulke-wearing, payot-growing, Star-of-David sporting doggies featured here know their latkes from their blintzes and so on.

10 Tough Calls In The Battle Of Ryan Gosling Vs. Puppy

Sometimes it feels as if the Internet has crawled into my brain, uncovered repressed thoughts, and given them their own domain name. In the case of “Ryan Gosling Vs. Puppy,” a Tumblr blog which pits a picture of The Gos against a similar picture of a puppy, the web has unearthed my very own Sophie’s Choice.

Meet Harper, The Pitbull Puppy That Cheated Death 3 Times!

Speaking of things that make me cry: PUPPIES! Specifically this 11-week-old pitbull pup named Harper who escaped death, well, three times by my count. Harper was born with debilitating “swimmer puppy disorder,” in which they cannot walk and survival is unlikely. First, she was abandoned in a trash bag where she would have died if…

Duck Bullies Dog

It may be small in stature, but this baby duck is completely terrorizing that innocent puppy! I know because his bark sounds exactly like Lucca’s when I practice playing Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold” on my ukulele.
