Movies to watch with your pooch to ring in the Year of the Dog


According to the Chinese zodiac, 2018 is Year of the Dog — a calendar creature we can truly get behind.

Chinese New Year begins on Friday, Feb. 18, with two weeks of celebrations around the globe. 

So, to celebrate the coming of a canine year, why not watch a film that runs on four legs? We’ve got to wait until March for the release of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, but there’s still plenty of high-quality pooch cinema to watch. 

Whether you have your own four-legged friend or are just looking to live vicariously through one’s adventures, these films are a special treat. Read more…

Mom tries out VR, ends up cuddling a doggy butt IRL


While experiencing the thrills of virtual reality, this mom got a bit overwhelmed and reached for her dog to comfort her.

Unfortunately, the VR headset prevented her from seeing the dog, which means she grabbed the wrong end and wound up nuzzling her face into a cute, little doggy booty for a minute.

As the confused dog hangs upside down and the women unknowingly strokes its tush, it’s nearly impossible not to burst out laughing along with the woman’s family members.

Thank you, VR headset. We needed this wholesome moment of joy to distract us from the usual internet dread that’s just part of the bargain when you exist on Earth in 2017. Read more…

Boise State’s football dog is a good boy who fetches the tee after kickoffs


Is the Boise State football dog an elite quarterback? No, but he could be, if someone just gave him a chance.

Boise State’s dog (a good boy) is what’s called a kickoff specialist. By that, we mean that he runs onto the field like a happy idiot and gets the tee after kickoff.

Take a look at the dog in action. Note his elegant form. Note the fluid, dancer-like movements in his route running that make him a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame. Note his professionalism in the midst of a huge crowd of rabid football fans. 

Do NOT note the way he drops the tee, that doesn’t matter. Read more…

Let us bow our heads and pray to Reflection Corgi, the patron saint of selfless gifts and confusing mirrors.

If you didn’t know about the deep altruism of the noble corgi — dogs known for having both the purest hearts and funniest butts — you know now.
