The Easter Dog

(YouTube link)

Five the Boston Terrier dressed up in his Easter bunny ears to wish you a happy Easter! Watch him gleefully -or not- ride around on a Roomba to the familiar strains of ”The Bunny Hop.” That’s a good dog. No, it doesn’t make much sense, but does it have to? -via Laughing Squid

Pandas' Passion Pulverizes Past Record for Sexual Duration

 

These hilarious smiley panda pictures are of giant pandas Lu Lu and Zhen Zhen, whose seven minute and 45 second sex session has shattered all records of panda sexual endurance. According to the People Daily, the happy couple is the current record holder for length of panda sex; their panda peers Yi Bao and Jin Xin only got busy for one minute and 20 seconds, and pandas in general are considered challenged when it comes to procreation. This is because female pandas have only one estrous cycle each year, lasting anywhere from two to seven days.

Read more on this story and see additional precious panda photos here.

Dogs Train Their Humans to Keep Petting Them

Have you ever been petting a dog who lets you know in no uncertain terms that you've cut short the behavior prematurely and need to report to duty again asap? My dog has a little move we call the noseflip. One bump of his nose underneath your now resting hand will make the hand go flying in the desired petting direction. Aaand repeat. It seems as if every one of the canines shown here have mastered their own set of unique moves.

Firehouse Cats

But you got to force the last door, let MEow do this one!! #forcingdoors #teamwork #letMEowdoit

A photo posted by Boogie (@midtownboogiefdny) on Jan 21, 2015 at 6:43pm PST

You might associate Dalmatian dogs with fire departments, and indeed they are traditional. But if a pet is going to actually live in a firehouse, a cat will keep the mice away and doesn’t need to be walked. A couple of cats who live in New York City firehouses have their own Instagram accounts. Boogie, shown above, is in Manhattan at Ladder 24. Carlow, below, lives at Tower Ladder 13 in Yorkville.

Sexy Saturday! #damnimgoodlooking #sexyandiknowit #yourewelcomeladies

A photo posted by Carlow (@carlow_fdny_cat) on Jan 24, 2015 at 6:22pm PST

Both cats have avid followings, and even cross-post each other’s pictures sometimes. They are both loyal FDNY employees who are treated well -spoiled, even! -via Laughing Squid

Henry Lizard Lover Lives Up To His Name

A lot of people like Lizards, but few people love them as much as Henry Lizardlover -who loves them enough to even change his last name to reflect that fact. 

Henry has quite a way with the reptiles and can even get them to relax in lounge chairs and mini beds, which makes Henry quite the lizard photographer. Henry even lives with the lizards loose in his home -refusing to cage his great friends. But hey, if we all saw lizards through Henry's eyes, we might just do the same. 

For more great photos from Henry Lizardlover, be sure to follow his Flickr stream or his website.

Dogs Who Have No Idea How Funny They Look With Their Toys

Source: 

When it comes to the chew toys shown here, the joke is on these dogs. They're running around blissfully enjoying their new chew, totally unaware it's giving them a bad case of buck teeth. Some self-respecting guy dogs might not be walking with so much swagger if they knew they had a lipstick mouth with a red pucker rivaling that on any Rolling Stones album

I bought my dog the toy with the big tongue sticking out (shown in the article linked below) and the joke was on me  he never once played with it. Perhaps he sensed shenanigans and said no dice. 

See more dogs who look silly with their toys in their mouths here.

French Bulldog Takes Things into His Own Paws When Left in the Car

YouTube Link

This Frenchie from Eureka, California is obviously not a fan of being left alone in the car. He's bored and wants his human to get a move on. Thus, as he can't hotwire and reach to put the pedal to the metal, he put his paw on the horn. Leave this cutie in the car for too long and he'll lay on the horn for just as long. Eye for an eye, paw for a paw. -Via Laughing Squid

13 Animals Grumpier Than Grumpy Cat

Some animals, like the Quokkas and red pandas, couldn't look grumpy if they tried. While we love them for making us smile, sometimes you need a Grumpy Cat to remind you that everyone has bad days and only idiots smile all the time. Of course, when you're really having a bad day, just one grumpy cat still isn't enough.

That's where this great article from the San Diego Zoo comes in -giving you even more grumpy critters to make your frown into more of a scowling smirk. Granted, some of these animals might not actually look quite as grumpy as the legendary Grumpy Cat herself, but they're still in a bad enough mood to make me feel better.

Arguing with a Husky

(YouTube link)

He says, “So my husky stole my dad's potato skin off his plate. This was the ensuing argument.” Both Dads and Huskys are extremely verbal, so many words flew back and forth. Redditor kurtu5 offered a handy translation:

Human - Bad dog! Bad dog!

Dog - Our species decided to work together 10,000 years ago to help each other to survive! We used to share the hunt!

Human - Bad dog! Bad dog!

Dog - All you give me is boring dry food! Taste is enhanced by smell and my nose is 1,000 times more sensitive than yours! My food is so damn boring!

Human - Bad dog! Bad dog!

Dog - What do you expect? This is torture! I can't stand my dry food anymore. I love you so much and I want to eat with you!

However, the dog was eventually resigned to the fact that he will never outtalk Dad. But hey, he got a potato skin!

Say "Hello" to the World's Most Photographed Tarantula

Pandora is a tarantula. She is also a model. Those two factors aren't coincidence. Pandora's owner was once afraid of spiders but eventually not only overcame her fear, but also came to love the creatures and adopt dozens of them as pets.

In an effort to get others to overcome their fear of spiders and hopefully come to love the creatures, she started taking pictures of her pets. She soon discovered that Pandora was a perfect model and in the process started posting delightful photos of her baby on Facebook and Tumblr.

Of course, if you're terrified of spiders, it's hard to say if some of her horror-themed shoots will really help, but at least they'll let you see the creatures in an entirely new light.

Rabbit King Munches on His Iron Throne

Aegon Targaryen--Aegon the Fluffy, the call him--subdued all the warrens of Westeros. Then all of the Chief Rabbits of the land surrendered their carrots. He used them to erect the enormous Carrot Throne.

Wallace the rabbit once delivered beer to members of the court using a purpose-built cart. But no longer. He played the game and played it well. Now he sits in the Carrot Throne. And occasionally snacks on it, too.

Tortoise Gets 3D Printed Shell

(Photo: Denver Post)

Cleopatra, a leopard tortoise in Golden, Colorado, suffers from pyramiding. This means that the scrutes of her shell did not grow evenly, but pushed up, forming pyramid-like structures. The pyramids make her vulnerable to other tortoises, as well as make it difficult for her to right herself if she gets flipped over. Holes that formed along the borders also make her susceptible to infections.

Roger Henry, a design student at Colorado Technical University, responded by building her a protective outer shell. He spent about 600 hours developing a design that would fit precisely over her shell. Then he built it with a 3d printer. Cleopatra has adapted to it well and is enjoying a healthier lifestyle as a result.

Endangered Clouded Leopard Kitten Thriving, Verrry Sleepy



This two-week-old clouded leopard kitten is the current pride and joy of Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, not just because he's so adorable, but because his species is severely endangered. Zookeepers say the male kitten, now thriving in veterinary care, is very vocal, particularly when it's time for him to eat (which is approximately every four hours)!

Clouded leopards are the smallest of the big cats, weighing just 30-50 pounds as adults and measuring about five feet in length (including their long tails). Native to Southeast Asia, the species is typically shy and reclusive. Tragically, its native range of rainforest is undergoing the world's fastest regional deforestation rates. Heavy hunting and poaching in the area make the species even more vulnerable to extinction.

Learn more about this cutie at the Lowry Park Zoo website and do not miss this video of the kitten at their Facebook page -- it's the most adorable big kitten video I've seen in ages.

Six Cats Who Made a Mark on the Silver Screen



When it comes to cats in the movies, who could forget Dr. Evil's feline sidekick, Mr. Bigglesworth? Certainly not you. Because that would make Dr. Evil angry, which would upset Mr. Bigglesworth. And you know what happens when Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset. 

Mr. Big's real name? Ted Nudegent. As Austin Powers International Man of Mystery was Ted's first film gig, he had to be trained to sit still while Mike Myers as Dr. Evil screamed, evaluated fembots and performed other parts of his schtick, for up to 45 minutes at a time. Nudegent's trainer Tammy Maples told the Philadelphia Daily News.

"It helped that he had been a show cat and was used to having lots of people around. And also that he just loved Mike Myers. Mike always took time to talk to Ted. It wasn't just 'sit down, roll cameras.'"

Red Panda and Apple

(YouTube link)

This is probably some kind of enrichment activity for red pandas in the Maruyama Zoo in Sapporo, Japan, but it ends up as pure entertaining cuteness. They slap slices of apple onto the glass windows of Eita’s enclosure and he has to get them himself. The apples taste so good after all that effort! -via Daily Picks and Flicks

Thumbelina, the Smallest Horse in the World, Steals Hearts Everywhere



This adorable creature is Thumbelina, (previously), the Guinness Book of World Records title holder for the smallest horse in the world. Thumbelina is a dwarf, born to two mini horse parents. She is only 17.5 inches high and weighs 57 pounds; most large breed dogs would outweigh and tower over her. 

The tiny tot stands at 17.5 inches tall and weighs only 57 pounds, making her the smallest horse in the world.


Living at Goose Creek Farms in St. Louis, Missouri, Thumbelina's owner and caretakers Michael, Paul and Kay Goessling use her sweet disposition and looks to enrich the lives of sick children. They take her to children's hospitals and participate in regular outreach with children in her community and all across the country. 

Read more about Thumbelina and see additional pictures here, and see a video of her here.

Watch This Dog Adorably Fail at Catching Food, Over and Over Again

Poor Fritz! This Golden Retriever just wants to learn how to catch food when it's thrown to him. But his eye-mouth coordination is terrible. He's a klutz.


(Video Link)

Maybe he'll get better. His human is certainly giving him motivation. Fritz gets only the best: a whole steak, a slice of pizza, a donut, a chimichanga, and more. Keep trying, Fritz!

Cats Stealing Pizza

(YouTube link)

Being a citizen of the internet makes it very likely that you enjoy cats and occasionally enjoy a pizza. The problem is that cats enjoy pizza, too, and cats have no concept of resisting temptation, neither do they have respect for stupid human “rules.” My husband watched this and said, “Why don’t they push the cat away from the pizza?” Duh, these people are too busy recording a video for that! -via Tastefully Offensive
