Animals

They Said Agility, Not Speed

They Said Agility, Not Speed

Videographer Hans Watson shares this clip he took of Zeus the Mastiff. The dog became a hit at the 2014 Rocky Mountain Cluster Dog Show not because of his skills but because of his chill vibe. Hey, it could have been much worse.

Dog-shaped Scratching Post

Dog-shaped Scratching Post

While your cat might like to make biscuits on your actual dog, Fido probably doesn’t appreciate it. This dog-shaped scratching post from Erik Stehmann is the perfect solution. Sadly, we can’t see spending over $700 on something your cat will eventually shred.

Just Kids’ Stuff

Dark Horse (Trailer)

Dark Horse (Trailer)

Back in 2000, bar worker Jan Vokes convinced her neighbors in a poor village in South Wales to breed a racehorse – a rich man’s hobby – just for the heck of it. Director Louise Osmond shares their story in this feel good documentary.

The Blue Dogube

Parrot Bottle Opener

Parrot Bottle Opener

We’ve seen a bunch of crazy ways to open a bottle, but this guy might have taken the prize, having trained his Hyacinth Macaw Ringo to crack bottles open with his beak. We could have sworn we saw this on The Flintstones first.

Happy Meal

Happy Meal

Far Eastern Safari Park’s Siberian tiger Amur usually eats goats and rabbits twice a week. So caretakers at the Russian zoo were dumbfounded when he ended up being buddies with his latest meal. Perhaps Amur’s heart was emptier than his stomach. So far.

Australian Aquaman

The Amazing(ly Uncooperative) Acro-Cats

The Amazing(ly Uncooperative) Acro-Cats

…also known as cats. The Acro-Cats dropped by The Late Show to perform, but the stars proved that you don’t train cats. They train you to be happy when they give a crap. Unless of course that was the point of the performance all along, in which case that was pure genius.

Pizza Wiener Dog

Pizza Wiener Dog

Like Pizza Rat, This dachshund managed to get her hands (er, mouth) on a slice of pepperoni pizza. She’s thrilled with her prize, and nobody is going to take it away from her. Despite her stubbornness, she possesses some will power. Our dogs would have just gulped it down.

Pug TV

Pug TV

YouTube celebrity dog Doug the Pug takes over the airwaves with his own TV network, comprised entirely of shows starring him and his anipals. We can’t decide if our favorite is Breaking Pug, or Pugs and Recreation. Also, we would have gone with Orange is the New Pug.

CatDad vs. Cats

CatDad vs. Cats

(PG-13: Language) T.J. “CatDad” Browne, Jr. was attempting to celebrate National Cat Day (yup, that’s a thing) by donning a creepy realistic cat mask. Unfortunately, his cats were having none of it. We’d run away too if we saw this guy coming at us.

The Not-a-Cat Cat

Vat 19 recently crowdfunded the creation of this fluffy looking critter that’s designed for folks who don’t want to deal with messy litter boxes or the typical shenanganns that come with actual felines. Though it is still annoying.

Super Villain Bird

Super Villain Bird

This bird’s evil laugh will have you convinced that he’s plotting to overthrow the world, while our hero is tied to a table with a laser pointed at his crotch. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the ring leader of the Duck Army.

Dogs vs. Laser Pointer

Dogs vs. Laser Pointer

We’ve been admonished never to aim a laser pointer into the sky, as it could distract aircraft pilots. But nobody said we can’t aim them at the ground to distract dogs. That’s exactly what happened with this pack of strays in Russia, egged on by a duo of mischief makers above.

Fritz Learns to Catch 2

Fritz Learns to Catch 2

A while back, we visited with Fritz, a charming but uncoordinated Golden Retriever who struggled with catching food thrown his way. Well, he’s back and he’s doing a little better. And before you give him a hard time, a 0.500 average is darned good in baseball.

Blues Dog

Blues Dog

See that dog there behind the drums? He’s very musical. In fact, he’s able to howl the perfect note with the perfect amount of tremolo to accompany a saxophone playing a blues tune. We’d like to see him trained to howl the entire scale. (Thanks Mike!)

Handful of Crabs

Handful of Crabs

If these were tiny spiders, we’d be totally creeped out, but there’s something oddly soothing about this video of Jeremias Maluw as he picks up a handful of teensy crustaceans and lets them crawl all over his hand.

Dániel Taylor Animal Portraits

Dániel Taylor Animal Portraits

Sheepwalking

Sheepwalking

A shepherd and a group of helpers take an unconventional route, as they lead a huge herd of sheep down a city street in Poland, resulting in some really baaaad traffic. They should really be lambasted for this. Okay, we’ll stop.

Adam Savage’s Ultimate Duck Army

Adam Savage’s Ultimate Duck Army

He’s confirmed their existence, but Adam Savage isn’t done with the Squawkie Talkies aka duck army (which by the way are not ducks but albatross). He used 16 of the toys and a hand built restraint to unleash hell on Earth. Skip to 20:49 for the bomb.

Paddle Boarding with Whales

Paddle Boarding with Whales

Grocery Retrievers

Grocery Retrievers

A couple of golden retrievers help their owner bring the groceries in from the store. While this approach works well for packaged goods, we’re going to go out on a limb and guess any butchered meats would be devoured before they made it to the front door.

You Can Count on Me

You Can Count on Me

Greg Baskwell shows off exactly why they call dogs “man’s best friend,” as his loyal companion Finley is there by his side all day, every day. Looks like Finley is also pretty industrious when Greg isn’t around.
