The highlight of my year has been sleep. Beautiful, escapist slumber. Where I’m not bombarded with coronavirus stats or Apocalyptic tweets or election nonsense. The lowlight of my year? My ass fused to the couch due to an alarming lack of exercise. But one canine trailBlazer has managed to get his reps in despite his love of snoozing. Introducing Blaze, the husky who runs and naps at the same time.
What are bunnies best known for? No, not the hopping. Nope, not for being fast. They like carrots. Carrots are to rabbits as spinach is to Popeye. They fucking love that shit. So when Sheila Bryant, a grandma from Calgary, caught a hungry hopper feasting on the family snowman’s carrot nose, I was unsurprised. In fact, why doesn’t this happen more often? Free fresh veggies in the middle of winter! Continue reading
Most dogs, upon seeing their human leave the house, shift their mighty determination from “Hump mom’s leg and demand a neck rub even though she’s trying to sound respectable during her Zoom presentation” to “Bolt into the kitchen and steal any shit that isn’t nailed down.” Today we have before us a spring-loaded Pug from Nashville, Tennessee, who manages to break all the doggo rules and haul his enviably acrobatic butt out of the kitchen where he is penned, once mom steps outside and shuts the door.

Hey, that’s not what SJP meant when she said her fragrances would drive the boys wild!
Goddammit, my eye holes are leaking over this story. As we all know, Queen Cher is an octuple threat – singer, actress, natural beauty, LGBTQIA+ icon, patriot, thief, wordsmith, and crimefighter. But did you know that the 74-year-old legend is also an elephant activist? In the past she’s (unsuccessfully) fought for Billy the Elephant’s transfer from the L.A. Zoo. More recently she campaigned for Kavaan’s release from a neglectful zoo in Pakistan. And this time, success! Kavaan, also known as “the world’s loneliest elephant” has been moved to a Cambodian sanctuary.
Meet Shredder, the pet rescue raccoon who both loooves water and refuses to believe that it’s a liquid, not a solid. In a recent video posted by his human, Shredder uses his cute little paws and teeny tiny mouth in a futile attempt to catch the water coming out of a garden hose. Awwww, da baby is confuse-ed!
