Getting antsy waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey? I kinda am. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until 2014 (Jan 4, to be exact), until the series returns.
Luckily for us, however, the geniusly talented artist Kim Parkhurst has created a series of paintings which portray each of the major players as animals. And damned if she hasn't nailed the right animal for each character. Like Anna, above, as a greyhound? Perfect!
Even better, though, ... Read More

Sarah Silverman recently illuminated the internet about the 14-years she spent with her dog, Duck, through a beautifully-written, heartfelt obituary that sometimes even the best of people don’t receive. Silverman wrote about how they first met at a no-kill animal shelter in Van Nuys, CA, where Duck was placed after being found running through South Central Los Angeles without any form of identification. She detailed how happy, yet stoic, he was, and ... Read More
Meet Tsunami, the cancer-fighting dog
You’ve heard stories about dogs saving lives (my own dog shielded me from a fire when I was a newborn!), but here’s a new one for you: some really amazing dogs are learning how to detect ovarian cancer before modern medicine can. That’s right: dogs can detect faint odors associated with the disease.
The dogs over at the University of Pennsylvania’s Working Dog Center are being trained to ... Read More

Castles tend to stand the tests of time. The visually arresting corridors of Downton Abbey, known in the real world as Highclere Castle, have experienced and seen a lot, but when it comes to dogs (and mud), it's apparently a different story. After a “ruckus” on set, Lady Carnavon, owner of the castle, ordered a ban on all cast members’ dogs. Several canines were getting a little too rowdy, romping and rolling through the set, dragging mud and chewing rugs ... Read More
Like so many others, my life revolves around my dog. My dog Remy’s life, however, revolves around fetch. I am woken many mornings by a joyous bouncing of her rubber orange ball, so (naturally!) I am always on the lookout for new innovations in the field of fetch.
This is a big one, ladies, so pay attention. A very special dog hailing from Kobe, Japan has figured out a way to play fetch by himself with the aid of only a few rocks and a strong water ... Read More

Here’s one unusual animal pairing that’ll get your heart warming in no time. Little remains known about the story’s background, but the adorable photos tell it all: a mastiff adopted a baby chimpanzee as one of its own. Cue endless baby talk. It’s unclear whether the baby chimp’s mother passed away or abandoned the newborn, but after a zoo caretaker took the chimp home and introduced it to the mastiff and her puppies, the ... Read More

America sure loves its dogs. Coming from Australia, I have been both shocked and delighted at the abundance of four-legged friends in New York. The streets are a veritable feast of pugs, Boston terriers, and rescued mutts, and there seems to be a cute pooch on every corner. I may/may not be using my housemate’s dog as a way to strike up conversations in the park. (Hey, I’m a long way from home, stop judging me!)
I'm also on constant lookout for a Lena ... Read More

It is with sadness and disbelief that I write this blog to report the sudden death of our beloved and honorary office dog, Wally, who passed away of a heart attack earlier today.
Wally was a three-legged foster dog that was adopted by our Sales Director, Emily last year. Within the past year he has spent many days in the BUST office hopping around after his mother, staring up with his big sad puppy dog eyes at anyone with food, in the hopes that he ... Read More

We've been keeping a secret from you: we have an illegal BUST employee. He isn't on the payroll. We do pay him with love, a place to hang out during the day, and scraps. Truth be told, though, Wally the office dog is probably our most valuable staff member. He's constantly pitching original content, posting blogs, and chatting it up with cover girls for the magazine. We thought it was time we fessed up and introduced you guys to our creative center, so we asked ... Read More
