The #snootchallenge is here to bless the internet with cuteness

By Laura Byager2018-08-24 09:53:37 UTC What's more adorable than dogs doing cute tricks? The answer is nothing. This is probably why dog owners have taken to the #snootchallenge, the objective of which is to get your dog to run to you and put its snoot straight into a small circle.  Simple concept, delightful results.  This Golden Retriever nailed it.  This puppy, not so much. But it's still pretty darn cute. Gunner knows his stuff! You don't need a snout to ace the challenge, honestly. This is a good boy! Just look at this…continue reading →

Seven adorable puppies were found stranded on an uninhabited island in Canada

Seven adorable puppies were found stranded on an uninhabited island in Canada

Image: JR Cook/Norway House Animal Rescue group By Adam Rosenberg2018-08-04 21:57:33 UTC Let's start with something positive: Seven extremely cute puppies have been rescued from the wilds of Canada, and are right now on the road (literally) to a better life. The circumstances of how the puppies came to be stranded on an uninhabited island in the Canadian province of Manitoba remains a mystery, however. Most of the obvious possibilities here lead to some troubling conclusions. The saga of the puppy rescue began on Monday when a volunteer for Winnipeg's Norway House Animal…continue reading →

The world's pretty messed up, so here's a bunch of tiny-weeny cheetahs

Those eyes.

A group of six newborn cheetah cubs have been unveiled to the public, having arrived at Taronga  Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, Australia. The cubs were born to mama Kyan and papa Jana, on June 6, in the largest litter the zoo's seen to date (usually the litters are about two to four cubs).

Amazing dog recognizes long-lost brother while out on a walk

By Petrana Radulovic2018-05-18 15:03:01 UTC You may wonder what secret life your pet lead before coming to you, but for the owner of a Labradoodle named Louie, the past just got a little clearer.  Twitter user @itswalela posted a picture of Louie in the park after he spotted another Labradoodle and immediately stopped what he was doing.  After talking to the other dog's owner, Louie's family discovered that the two dogs came from the same breeder and had the same parents. Yes, that's right — the two dogs are brothers.  My fam got…continue reading →

Happy dog launches himself through open car window at rocket speed

By Sam Haysom2018-02-12 10:55:08 UTC It's a well-proven fact that there are few things in this world more cheering than the sight of a happy dog. Especially if the dog in question happens to be taking a running, gleeful jump through an open car window. On Sunday, Roman Mitchell from Dallas, Texas shared the following video of his Pointer. "I thought it'd be cool to show off my dog's athleticism," he wrote, "until I realized he had no self control..." That, my friends, is a classic example of a very good boy.

We're sorry but this baby giraffe tops all other giraffes

By Shelby Slauer2018-02-09 16:54:17 UTC Step aside April the giraffe, there's a new giraffe in town and this giraffe is the best one. The Kansas City Zoo welcomed a new baby giraffe born on Feb. 2. She doesn't have a name yet, but everything about her is perfect. Look at her expression. Look at her hair. Look at the way she sticks his tongue out for the camera.  If that wasn't cute enough, her mother is watching over her in the background. All that matters is this giraffe.continue reading →
People are letting their dogs take the Egg Challenge. It's much better than Tide Pods.

People are letting their dogs take the Egg Challenge. It's much better than Tide Pods.

By Petrana Radulovic2018-02-06 20:08:44 UTC Unlike the Tide Pod challenge, a new internet trend of putting inedible stuff in our mouths isn't going to make you roll your eyes. Twitter has been inspired by Sookie the golden retriever who oh-so-gently held an egg in her mouth recently. And now, people are testing their own pups with the Egg Challenge, where you basically force an egg into your doggo's mouth and see if they don't break it. This challenge is not restricted by breed, and all different types of dogs are stepping up. Did…continue reading →

Celebrities were actually given 'consolation puppies' at the Grammys

Yes Seinfeld gets a puppy. As if just being Seinfeld isn't reward enough. Image: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for NARAS By Isobel Hamilton2018-01-29 10:39:10 UTC Okay, so instead of a prestigious award they got a puppy. At the Grammys on Sunday, host James Corden didn't just dish out those little golden gramophones. "Consolation puppies" were handed out to nominees who didn't win their category. Jerry Seinfeld (who was nominated for Best Comedy Album) was given a puppy called Roxy and Corden described her as "a biter". Many were happy to see the pups at…continue reading →

An excavator was used to dig out the well and created a pathway so the elephant can finally break free while its…continue reading →

Little girl lives her best life under a pile of puppies

By Leah Collie2017-11-05 20:15:00 UTC One young girl bravely defended herself against the gentle forces of cute from seven furry puppies and their tiny wet kisses. But sadly, in the end, she lost the adorable battle.  Proud mom Emily Rook shared an adorable photo of her 8-year-old daughter Sofia, cuddling with a band of precious pups at their local animal shelter.  Rook, an animal care technician, told Mashable that the picture was taken at the Humane Society of Washington County in Maryland.  “The shelter was founded in 1921 and continues to care for…continue reading →
