Getting a dog has gotta be up there with the most exciting and emotional times in your life. The first touch of a cold and wet nose, that first slobbery lick and over-enthusiastic jump onto your lap, these are things that stay in your memory forever. Have pictures from that special day? Share them with us!
Everybody loves Tom Hardy, and Tom Hardy loves dogs, which basically makes everybody love Tom Hardy even more (if that’s even possible).
It’s no secret that doggos love our company, which is why it’s hard to leave them behind when we work, socialise and travel. But one startup may have found the … Read more
You’ve probably heard the phrase fighting like cats and dogs, right? While there’s certainly some truth in the stereotype of cats and dogs hating on each other (they do having naturally conflicting temperaments), with a little bit of luck and some very careful introductions the two can live together in relative harmony.
Dogs and humans alike gotta enjoy those summertime vibes while they last. The weather is warm and the skies are clear, so that makes it the perfect time for taking a dip in the pool.
To enjoy those summer vibes, Teal the Labrador retriever took some time to splash around in her backyard pool and make a few waves.
“Teal loves her pool, every time she gets in she does this,” the video’s description says.
Such fun way for a sweet doggo like her to make the best of the great weather. Read more…
Cats don’t own smartphones, mainly because touch screens aren’t easy to use when you have paws. But if they did they’d probably use them to crank call dogs, ignore calls from their humans, and Google the best strategies for world domination. What they wouldn’t use them for is taking selfies, because as you can see from this funny list of photo (un)friendly felines compiled by Bored Panda, cats hate selfies.
Kids can get pretty excited when their parents bring home a new toy from the store, and so can our wonderful birb friends.
Alex the cockatiel was extremely excited to get a stuffed animal toy (that looks exactly like him) to play with and love forever and ever. The cockatiel’s owner presented Alex with the plush twin, and he could barely contain his peeps of excitement when he saw his new buddy.
Since these two are just getting acquainted, Alex didn’t seem completely enthusiastic to have plush-Alex invade his personal space, but we’re sure they’ll be inseparable in no time. Read more…
When someone calls shotgun, you have to obey the rules and give them that seat. That’s like Drivers Ed 101.
Those are the rules that Zeus the husky clearly understands, so it makes sense that he didn’t want to give up the front seat when his owner told him to move on out.
Bath running? Check. Cucumbers? Check. Faithful rubber ducky? All check.
Diesel Minnie is the dog having one of the most luxurious baths of them all. Diesel is usually hard at work posing for photos on his Instagram account, so this relaxing bath-in-a-sink is probably long overdue for him.
Let this video of Diesel relax you as you try to pretend you’re the one with cool cucumbers over your eyes and the calming smell of rosemary mint shampoo ready to take you away to your happy place. Read more…
Looking for new friendship goals? Then look no further than Mame and Riku.
Hamster running wheels typically only come with enough room for one hamster.
But one excited hamster thought it was a good idea to take the wheel from another hamster that had already been using it. Well, this hamster surely learned a good lesson. The first hamster reclaimed its wheel and sent the wheel-stealing hamster spinning.
The pet shop video was first shared by @_missmiranduh on Twitter last week, whose brother sent her the video.
If anyone’s going to buy these little hamsters, they should probably go to separate families. Read more…
”My fish got bronchitis the first week of a new job.”
Dogs are supposed to be man’s best friend, but it looks like these pups have gotten it wrong, because as you can see from this hilarious list, these guys aren’t man’s best friend – they’re MUD’S best friend!

Hey, Easter Bunny: you’ve been put on notice.
Murphy the Goldendoodle is gunning for your gig as floppy-eared distributor of colorful eggs and springtime cheer.
The brown-haired Goldendoodle — part golden retriever, part poodle — recently transformed a plastic cone collar into an Easter basket, replete with rainbow-colored filler and plastic eggs (that were hopefully not filled with chocolate candy).
Murphy donned the cone collar on other occasions too, using its plastic perimeter to create a popcorn bowl, or a martini glass.
