There’s such a thing as a beekeeping dog, and it is adorable!

In Australia, adorkable beekeeping Labrador, ‘Bazz’, helps out beekeeper Josh Kennett in detecting ‘American foulbrood’, a serious disease that spreads among bee colonies. Usually, the Paenibacillus larvae caused by the infection can only be detected under the lens of a microscope. But it turns out that Bazz’s powerful nose is a better alternative. Kennett built […]

Turns out baboons are kinda like the mafia of the animal world. The following video shows a baboon kidnapping a puppy from its mother, dragging it by its tail and giving it their own version of hospitality. Animal lovers beware, the first minute of the video is pretty heart-breaking to watch, especially when you hear […]

The Photoshop masters of the internet have brought us realistic photos of Dirds, birds with the heads of dogs. Now, all we need are Pokemon names for the different breeds of Dirds. Pugeon, […]

Doggy bag comes with a real doggy

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Fashion on Wednesday 30 October 2013

This messenger-style doggy bag trend is hitting the streets of the Big Apple. Yes, one fashionista was spotted accessorizing her orange sundress with a Brussels Griffon pup hanging casually from a harness-bag. And the funny thing is, the little guy actually seemed to enjoy it. What a lazy little bugger. Would you wear it? I […]

Ed Ruscha is one of my favorite photographers. His Twentysix Gasoline Stations book is probably the first photo book that’s also an art object in itself. This video of Ed and his dog showing his work gives us a glimpse into the mind behind the master.

A zoo in China’s People’s Park of Luohe has reportedly been attempting to pass off common species as exotic species. One such attempt involved a Tibetan mastiff masquerading as an African lion, but as you might guess, nobody was fooled.

Star Trek Dog

We think this picture says a lot more about the dog owner than the dog. Whoever owns this dog must be a pretty dedicated Star Trek fan, and it’s likely that they enjoy a nice beer every now and then as well. Whatever the case, this pup sure looks thrilled to be dressed as the […]

Digital consultancy Digital Boomerang has a dog-in-residency… well, okay, he’s really self-styled chief entertainment officer Charlotte’s pet dog who follows her to office sometimes. Of course, they’ve set up a Facebook page for him. It’s hilarious.

Funny singing dog video

By Mates of State in Video on Tuesday 18 December 2012

This singing dog video is for all ages. I don’t care if 3,000,000 people have seen it. He should be heard. I hope it’s really true that this fella does this while his owners are out. I know it’s true that animals other than humans and chimps make art for their own benefit. Jason’s favorite […]

Dave Meinert Reader Find

By Dave Meinert in New Film on Friday 16 March 2012

My friend went away for the weekend and asked me to look after his dog. I made a video to prove I had. I synched it up to a song by another friend, Johnny Neon. I threw in a girl in a bikini, some sunsets … oh, and the dog is a rescue dog. 1.4 million […]

Anna Melcon Bond

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Events, New Illustration on Friday 26 June 2009

I love the first image on the website of illustrator Anna Melcon Bond: the snarling bushes and the little dog in the wagon snarling back as his owner blithely skips along trailing the wagon behind her. Melcon Bond’s work oozes with wit. There’s not an image of hers that I wouldn’t tack on my wall […]
