    This is the Alien Facehugger Dog Leash made and sold by Etsy shop GCFX. It costs $150, which is a little out of my dog leash budget (I use three shoelaces tied together and a safety pin). Also, the facehugger is actually attached to a black fabric harness, which is hard to se... / Continue →

    At least it wasn't underwear. These are the results from a 3-year old Great Dane's stomach surgery after his owner's noticed he appeared sick. The vet removed an astonishing 43.5 socks. How the f*** the dog's owners didn't notice they were completely out of socks is beyond m... / Continue →

    Dog owners Sue and Phillip Lauer dressed up their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono as Game of Thrones characters. This is the result -- The Pugs Of Westeros. Admittedly, they did a great job with the costumes. One time I tried to put a dress on my dog and she ate the bottom half. I... / Continue →

    This isn't actually a new concept, I reported on panda and tiger dogs back in 2010, they're just making the rounds again because apparently people in China can't get enough dogs that don't look like dogs. Man, I want a dog with its hair cut to look like a lion. I take that ba... / Continue →

    This is a video of Duncan the boxer running on the beach. Duncan was born with severely deformed back legs, so his adoptive family had them amputated. And now he has learned to run with just his front two legs. Cool, but I'd still want some back wheels if I was him. "Vroom ... / Continue →

    This is a video of magician Jose Ahonen showing dogs a treat, then making it disappear right in front of their eyes. They get so confused. I would have just bitten his fingers and considered that my treat. Mmmm, human sausage. By a show of hands, how many of you still peel... / Continue →

    Watch your step, Florida. In case you were wondering, my Spirit Quest was a huge success and I am returning to reality refreshed AND with the knowledge of my spirit animal. I think it was a coyote, but it was pretty flat and there were a lot of tire tracks. In news that requ... / Continue →

    This is a video made using 52 GoPro cameras to capture dogs playing and doing tricks in bullet-time. Unfortunately, they set the cameras up in a line instead of a circle or arc so it just kind of pans along the action instead of capturing it from all angles. NOT HOW I WOULD H... / Continue →
