I Capture Spanish Hunting Dogs As They Enjoy Their Life Of Freedom

Hi, my Name is Marcus Gier and I am a hobby-dog photographer from Cologne in Germany. I love to photograph dogs, especially the Spanish Galgo.

The World Galgo Day is a day where all of us can give a voice to the spanish dogs…continue reading →

This Golden Retriever Was Born With A Genetic Mutation And 133k Instagram Followers Love Him

Enzo is one special dog – and not just because he is adorably cute and impossible to resist. He is also special because of his rare condition called pigmented somatic cell mutation.

His owner, Ella Castro, told media that: “Golden retrievers are born with a base black coat, with a ‘modifier gene’ that turns them golden. Almost every dog has this modifier. Enzo has a little stumble in his DNA that erased it…continue reading →

After Receiving Newspapers She Did Not Subscribe To, Woman Catches Her Cat Committing Crimes

Stealing is not cool. Unless it’s done by your cat, in which case it’s perfectly normal. We all know that cats like to steal stuff, especially food, from time to time – like that chicken wing you naively left on the dinner table or that shrimp from the wok pan you were saving for later. But while these trixy thieves like to take they also like to give gifts to their owners as well. Max, a cat from New Zealand took his gift giving skills to a whole other level.

Britain Had Banned Pet Stores For Selling Animals After A Story Of An Abused Dog Goes Viral

Recently Britain has taken an important step to protect animals from exploitation. The government banned third-party sales of kittens and puppies below the age of 6 months.

I plan to project even more images of distinctive animals in other parts of the world. For instance: lions…continue reading →

After Putting His Cat Down This Guy Gets Her Ashes, Some Fur And A Paw Full Of Flower Seeds

It wouldn’t be a lie to state that pets make our lives much better, and some of our little critters go even a mile further than just being sweet companions. They will our lives with laughter, happy borks and general warmth with their presence. That’s why it’s extremely hard to let them go once it’s time for them to cross the rainbow bridge. No matter how sick and weak they get, the least we can do as their faithful human partners is to ease their journey and save them from suffering that old…continue reading →

Someone Asks What’s The Weirdest Habit Their Pets Have, And People Deliver

We've seen dogs being weird and pets bringing home the weirdest of items, so it's no surprise that our closest (usually) four-legged friends can be really, really bizarre. Some say that pets can be so close to their owners, that they eventually mimic some behavior and we know anything about humans, we know that our own species can have some pretty strange habits. That's why it doesn't surprise anyone that pets can be a little... "out there" with their actions. Well, as long as they're not hurting anyone, we guess? People of Reddit…continue reading →
