My heart just exploded through my ribs. If this video of a grandfather being surprised with an English Bulldog puppy/pile of chubby wrinkles doesn’t make you smile just a little bit, then I don’t know what to tell you. What I can tell you is that his tearful, raspy cries of joy, “ Oh my gawd, holy jesus! Oh my gawd, hello sweetie!” will have you making grabby hands at the nearest soft object and clutching it to your chest!

Anyone else out there having one of those days/weeks/millennia in which they consistently question the goodness of mankind? Most of the news cycle is designed to point to awful people doing awful things. It's hard – especially on Thursdays – to be an optimist. Anyone recall, for instance, CURRENT NFL player Michael Vick's heinous, terrible, disgusting dog-fighting ring, for which this miserable scumbag served a mere 21 months in ... Read More

It's the start of another week, which means it's time to face the struggles of life anew. What better to combat that with than videos of small and fuzzy animals doing ridiculous stuff?! There's nothing that says "I'll worry about those taxes later!" quite like a clip of a hamster stuffing ten carrots into his cheek pouches.

Pinterest is all about sharing joyful images, and kittens are all about sharing sweet, tender love. There is one very special calico cat who lives across the street from my family’s house, and while she loves to run away and hop on our lawn for some treats and snuggles, my husband-to-be and I don’t get the curl up with her as much as we’d like. Sometimes a gal just needs some eye candy to get her through a day without kitty kisses, and luckily, ... Read More

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

With all the upsetting, uber-depressing news pouring in left and right lately, I believe a good cat video is in order. This furry lil friend is up to no good, trying to nab some human's rug. (But what do they need it for anyway? They don't even have claws to knead and rip it up with! Silly humans.) Just try to tell me you've seen a cuter game of tug o' war. Watch the rug thief below and be sure to share any great cat vids you have in the comments ... Read More
