Florida Woman Leaves Dog to Die As She Shops At Walmart for 13 Hours

There are a lot of things to take away from the story. The first is that there are people out there who are horrible and will leave their dogs to die of heat exhaustion as they shop for low-price goods at unbelievable discounts. The second is that there are people who will spend 13 hours in a Walmart. What is the… » 7/09/14 9:40am 7/09/14 9:40am

Brooklyn Man Tattoos Dog, Wins 'Biggest Jackass' Award

I don't know who's the bigger problem here, the tattoo artist who surprised his dog with ink during her spleen surgery, or the unnamed veterinarian who allegedly allowed the inking.

Bear, Dude, and Dog Make for an Adorably Talented Trio

Admittedly, the bear (a Russian circus bear) is the only truly talented member of the bunch, but that’s okay — for every performing trio, there can really be only one Beyoncé. I guess the trainer is pretty talented, too, for somehow teaching a bear how to play a trumpet better than my fourth-grade self ever could,… » 5/27/13 10:45pm 5/27/13 10:45pm

Your Morning Cry: Puppy Mill Dog Walks on Grass for First Time

Meet Lizzy. Lizzy was a breeder dog at a puppy mill for 12 years. She was confined to a tiny cage all that time; forced to breed litter after litter of puppies who were taken from her and shipped out to pet stores around the United States.

Gabby Giffords' Husband Rescues Baby Sea Lion, Is the Cory Booker of…

Okay. So it's official. Former astronaut Mark Kelly—husband of gun control advocate and former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords—is literally the Cory Booker of outer space. He was caught on video Saturday wresting a defenseless baby sea lion (I don't know if you've seen enough pictures of a baby sea lion, but… » 3/26/13 2:20pm 3/26/13 2:20pm
