Sigh. Why didn’t they just ask Cute Overload?

Recently, Yahoo Shine asked the question, “Why Do Dogs Tilt Their Heads?” YS has fancy statistics and lots of big words to explain how head tilting helps dogs hear better or see better. Um, Baroo? Think again, friends. We think the technical term is ’cause it’s cute! Meg first proved eet to the world back in 2006.

But, Do Horses Prefer Icelandic or Argyle?

Researchers in Norway proved horses have a lot of horse sense when it comes to wearing sweateauws. A recent study showed how horses choose to wear a sweateauw or not depending on the weather. One researcher said, “Many owners have no clue whether their horses need rugs and blankets”, and may we suggest, a nice cup of hot cocoa to go with it.

“Found this lovely story about how Norwegian researchers let the horses choose if they want to be inside or outside in different weathers, and if they want to wear sweaters or not! They choose a symbol for cover on or off. They want it on if it is cold and rainy, and off as it gets warmer.” -Devoted fan, Reidun K. Original story in Norwegian via NRK, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.

“This is Hemingway. I’ve raised him from a kitten but I don’t want to be held responsible for his bad manners! This picture is of him trying his hardest to distract me from studying with his absolutely adorbs beseeching paw action! Please note that he is a polydactyl kitty – and his white paws make it look like he’s always wearing mittens!” -Caroline C.
