We are All This Golden Retriever Spectacularly Bombing an Agility Test

This golden retriever is learning a very valuable lesson way earlier than most of us do: sometimes you are just fucking terrible at something and that's that. You're not always gonna win, and that's okay. Sometimes falling on your ass is more fun. And also embarrassing yourself? Not so bad. At least there are treats. » 11/19/14 9:00pm Wednesday 9:00pm

Here are Some Adorable Animal Bandits Stealing Everything in Sight

Look at those faces! Look at those paws! Look at these animals stealing your cookies and your heart and your house. No, really: These adorable creatures just got together and kicked you out of your own home. But you don't mind, right? How can you say no to these faces? (You can't!

Tiny Hamster Thanksgiving: the Goddamn Greatest Thing You've Ever Seen

There is no finer film genre than Tiny Hamsters Eating Hamster-Sized Approximations of People Food.

Chicago Is Losing Its Shit Over This Rescued Baby Sea Otter

There is nothing cuter in the world than a baby otter cleaning its face. Nothing. If I could give birth to baby sea otters instead of baby people, I'd never stop being pregnant. I would be the Michelle Duggar of otter pups. As such, it makes perfect and absolute sense to me that the entirety of the city of Chicago is… » 11/06/14 10:10am 11/06/14 10:10am

Hamster Bartenders Are All the Rage in Japan (Where Else)

Pass it on: hamsters are the hot new mixologists. Pretty sure bars in Williamsburg, Silver Lake, and the Mission will be crawling (literally!) with these little guys. Throwing cherries in Manhattans and recommending Yamazaki Single Malt for your evening indulgence. It's like Ratatouille, but CUTER. Yeah, I said it. » 11/05/14 9:30pm 11/05/14 9:30pm
