So, Feb. 5 is the Super Bowl, which means the Puppy Bowl will also roll into town the same day for those of us who care way more about cute pups than pigskins. The annual festival of wagging tales and furry faces kicks off on the Animal Planet on Sunday Feb. 5 at 3 p.m. EST, and this year, rather than a typical kitten cheering section, the show will feature a piggy pep squad. So yes, we’ll be watching. Click through to see the starting lineup at this year’s Puppy Bowl!
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. As we Frisky Jews (Ami and I) celebrate the festival of lights, we wish all of you — and your pets — a great holiday season.
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. I love Ryan Gosling. I love puppies. But WHICH IS CUTER? Here are 10 examples. You might be surprised by the choices I made. Weigh in with your own picks in the comments of each slide. I am so glad life off the internet is not so cruel.

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 she hadn’t been found and brought to a shelter — to be euthanized. A shelter worker named Erica Daniel brought her home one night, telling “The Today Show” she was planning on “letting her sleep in bed with us, and having her humanely euthanized in the morning.” But it was not to be! After Harper managed to stand on her own four paws, Daniel was inspired to keep the pup and take care of her in hopes that she would someday be able to walk and thrive. And look at Harper now! I am a blubbering mess right now. Check out the “Today” segment after the jump. I will virtually share my Kleenex. Keep reading »
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. Keep reading »
Cute! But I’m muy embarrassed this salsa-dancing puppy’s got better moves than I do. [Guanabee] Keep reading »
Meet Norman, a 20-month-old Briard (although Julie says he looks like a Muppet) from Canton, Georgia. While Norman likes standard puppy activities like fetch, eating trash, and barking at shadows, his favorite way to pass the time is by riding his scooter. Above, Norman in action. I clearly need to be encouraging Lucca to be more ambitious. [Dlisted

There’s an excessive amount of construction happening outside my apartment today (workin’ from home right now) and the jackhammering has gotten to the point where I was literally about to go outside and offer a blow job in exchange for some peace and quiet. But then I saw this photo and I was suddenly calm. I guess I won’t be prostituting myself after all. Phew. [Well That's Adorable] Keep reading »
I just showed my dog Lucca this video of an adorable pup quite literally salivating as he sits in front of a bowl of food, waiting for permission to eat. Lucca watched the vid all the way through, shook her little pin head and trotted away, mutt
ering (heh) under her breath, “Idiot.” I’m not sure if she was talking to the French bulldog or me, because I don’t have nearly as much control over her. Probably both of us, actually. [Buzzfeed

A kitten gamely allows a roving band of furiously cute puppies tackle and re-tackle her to the ground. It’s a battle of squee-inducing adorable vs. furry cuteness. Who will win? [Buzzfeed
