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. In photo form, baby animals are pretty much the best thing in the world — all that cuteness with no caretaking required. I love real babies and all, but I’d choose pictures of puppies and tiger cubs instead any day of the week. So, inspired by Jessica’s post this week about how Internet-famous cats are much better than real life cats, are 14 reasons why baby animal photos are better than real babies. Keep reading »
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 use a few sweet puppy faces to warm your heart and make you smile. Keep reading »
This just in: All animals need love, even the hard-shelled kind. On Friday, the Humane Society of the United States posted these amazing photos of a rescued tortoise who found a home in a litter of pups. Just look at those buddies! [Humane Society]
The Super Bowl is this weekend, which is whatever — what really matters is that the Puppy Bowl will also be on! The Puppy Bowl runs concurrent with ye olde Superbowl, and is a furry, adorable alternative full of frolicking puppies, fuzzy kittens and–for the first time–cheerleading hedgehogs.

There’s one reason and one reason only that I actually get excited for the Super Bowl each year … no, not the promise of taut man asses you can bounce a quarter off of — the Puppy Bowl! Animal Planet holds their epic puppy playtime extravaganza every Super Bowl Sunday and it’s always incredibly squee-worthy — and they’ve finally released the starting lineup of pawed players. Ravens versus 40ers? Pshaw! It’s all about Biscuit versus Fitz! Hmm, or Tuck versus Trinket. Now, I usually root the dogs which most resemble my girl Lucca, but truth be told, I wouldn’t kick any of these cuties out of bed for biting my toes. Click on through and tell us who your faves are!
Do you go to Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada? No? Well, get your but there on December 4, 5 and 6th, because the school is creating a goddamned puppy room for stressed out students. The pups won’t be permanently on campus; they’re graciously volunteering their time and soft, floppy ears with volunteers from Therapeutic Paws Of Canada, which is an organization that brings cats and dogs to schools, senior centers and other people in need.

If you’re like, oh, the whole Frisky staff, you woke up this morning consumed with anxiety — nay, dread — over the potential turnout of tonight’s election. You know what you need? A good puppy video.
Well, it’s not good for the puppy. He can’t get that damn doorstop. Poor thing. [Glamour]
Is there anything better than puppies? No. The answer is no. [YouTube]
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 can’t. Actually, this is more than just an Easter video. Watch it year-round if you’re pissed about anything. Oh, and have a very Happy Puppy Easter! [You Tube]
