I Want My DogTV

A new cable channel, DogTV, offers stimulating content for dogs who have to stay home during the day. Here’s an excerpt from an episode of the sci-fi adventure series Canine/Kangaroo Hybrid Trapped in Cornfield:

Other series include an in-depth look at interbreed frolicking, a documentary on the German Shepherd toy-rescue squad, and for some reason, cartoon bats:

But does it work? Let’s check in with a member of the DogTV focus group:

Taste Test

Hmnn, I’m picking up a heady pine aroma, slightly nutty taste, rather dry overall…


Ahh… comforting yarn scent, satisfyingly chewy vinyl texture, OM NOM NOM…


Lucy’s got good taste, Josh N.

Just a Drop in the Cute Bucket

They say an atom is the smallest unit of matter. Even smaller is the neutron and the proton. After that is the quark. But then, there’s the microlope; really more of a theoretical concept, also known as the antimatter antelope.

WHAT! IS! THAT?

Welcome back to everybody’s favorite game show! The producers have noted that this game is getting too easy – last week almost 7,300 votes and 63% of you guessed correctly, a guinea pig. So, this week we have made it very difficult. The picture below is a of an animal’s face,but we rearranged all of the pieces to really throw you off.

Let’s see how you do.


I wasn’t kidding about it being difficult, was I? Well, let’s see if we can help you piece it together with a hint from our special guest, “Hi! I am super playful and funny! I live in a den and will stay there until I’m about a month old. When I’m all grown up, I’m about 4 feet long including my tail. Is it time to play, now?”

Have you voted? If you are ready to see the answer, scroll down.


What a cutie! If you guessed b. otter pup, you are correct. This week’s program brought to you by Ant. See you next time we play WHAT! IS! THAT?

Coming Soon: Where’s Bea, Part II

From the blog that brought you “Where’s Bea?” comes the thrilling sequel, an action-packed story of one girl, one lamb, and one freshly-waxed floor.


Hope mom and dad will let the scratches on the floor slide, Alex.

Sorry, He Looked Just Like Kibble

SACRAMENTO — It was a jubilant night for the owners of Bibbity-Bobbity-Boo, the six-ounce miniature chihuahua who took first place in last night’s dog show. On a sad note, the winner was later eaten when he accidentally wandered into the supper dish of another contestant.


We’re just kidding! This is Seamus, the adorable Weimaraner who’s graced these pages before, after winning his first puppy show. Congratulations, Graelyn B.!

THIS JUST IN: Grazin’ Gallopin’ Giraffe

The new baringo giraffe calf at the Bronx Zoo just took her first steps out with mom, and she’s already getting busy — grazin’ in the grass, practicing with her new tongue, and galloping off on an impromptu butterfly hunt.

FaveFrame™!

Wolf Pack Puppy Pounce

While exploring the Idaho wilderness, wolf biologist Isaac Babcock and crew encountered a surprising sight: wolf cubs playing near the trail. You can see more wolf activity on “River of No Return,” which premieres on PBS Wednesday, April 18. (Look sharp for puppy pounce action at 0:47!)

Oh, the (Tree-)Hugged Manatee!

Via Treehugger.com (spotted by friend of the site Marilyn T.) comes the blorptastic story of an adorable baby manatee orphaned in the Amazon river, rescued by conservationists and nursed back to health. Sadly, orphan manatees are very common, but so long as they have our helping hands, they’ll have hope.

I Feel Weighed Down

Ever get that feeling like something is looming over you? Even though you slept all night, do you still not feel rested?

Yeah, me too.
