Wish you could read your canine companion’s mind? Just pay attention to his tail wagging. According to a study released by Current Biology, whether your dog’s tail wags more to the left or right matters a great deal. If the tail veers more to the left, your furry friend may be stressed.
Dogs shake in order to dry themselves, to shake off an emotion, to shake off imaginary bugs, or to recover after lots of invasive touching. A side effect of this shaking, when caught in slow motion, is sheer happiness for animal-lovers everywhere.
Oh, pugs. Something about these scrunched up faces say so much about their hardened criminal ways, while their doleful eyes plead innocent. Photographer Jim Dratfield took these Pug criminal information photos to expose them for their heinous crimes — such as peeing in public.
Down, canine! There’s nothing a cat can’t bring under control with a good kitty swipe. Or unbearable cuteness. Really, cats just wield this weird invisible hold over everyone. Even dogs. Especially dogs. All hail kitty.
It’s fairly well known that yawns are contagious among humans. But did you know that they are across species too? According to a study published in the Japanese journal Plos One, dogs are susceptible to contagious yawns from humans and are more likely to start yawning if they see their owner do it too.

So I think we officially found the girl with the coolest childhood. This little girl is just playing with a 14 German Shepherds and they are all loving it. If you look closely, you can see the little pups hidden in the grass as well.
Caught ya red-handed, dog. These pictures we’ve found surfacing online of preening, pouty pups photographing themselves might just be evidence that the doggie selfie is now taking off in a way we didn’t see coming.
Seems like the Chinese have just invented a new way to punish their dogs: make them strap on some pantyhose, and stilettos too, for added sexiness. Is it just us, or do most of the dogs in the pictures sport a resigned look on their face? It’s amusing for all of one second, but quickly […]
