Just waiting for the right moment to unleash them……






“Um, I sent the best kitty baroo EVER and it’s not here. Disappointment. But these other guys are pretty cute too.” -Hilary K.

Milo Shows Us How A Baroo Is DONE

Never seen it executed quite so well. Tens across the board from ALL judges! Amazink!

Go, Milo, go.

Red, White, And Baroo

Send us your Red, White, And Baroo-themed photo! We could post it on the Fourth of July for our Red, White, And Baroo celebrashe! Just send it in from now ’til noon PT on July 3rd. (If you could put BAROO in the subject line, it would be apreesh.)

We’d love the photo to have a Baroo IN it, but those are hard to capture, let’s face it. So just make sure it’s got July 4th colors. OK? We’re good?

BAROO [BAH-ROO] (noun) A common animal look expressing: “Whut the…?” Frequently accompanied by a head tilt and/or wrinkled brow.

U Might Not Be Able To Handle This

You know how, when you see a sleepy little puppeh..and he’s just waking up, and he kinda rolls over, and has that warm little puppeh smell, and the belleh is warm, and there’s some BLINK BLINK BLINK stuff, and then he rolls over and cuffs his nose, you know like they do. Max adorbs and stuff?

All that is just a WARM-UP…for what happens at 1:13.

Donut Baroo!

It’s National Donut Day! Let’s go!

Bella’s Baroo Mug Shot

(Say like Aunt Harriet on Batman:) Oh yes, officer! That’s her! She stole all my necklaces. I kept them in the top drawer of my dresser! I’ve never had anything like this happen before!


(Say like Sgt. Friday on Dragnet:) Yes m’am. We’ve seen her type before. We usually get this kind of thing with cat burglars. Thank-you for your cooperation. We’ll be in touch.

Bandit = Busted

El Bandito’s Body Language tends to suggest he is, in fact, guilty. The Left/Right/Left Baroo Combo at the end is a classic.

Six Reasons Why Pets Are Better Than Dates

Pets snuggle with no ulterior motives.

You expect your pet to sometimes smell funny. You worry when your date does. Conversely, your pet seems to enjoy it when you are especially malodorous, whereas your date does not.

Your pet doesn’t mind so much when you wear matching outfits.

Your pet doesn’t care if you have put on a few pounds, have some extra hair in weird places or if you’re wearing those holey sweatpants. Some dates expect you to step it up.

When you give your pet dinner out of a bag, can or crisper drawer, they act like it is French cuisine.

Your pet will always be happy to see you and will act like it’s been an eternity since they saw you last. If your date is not happy to see you, get a different date. Better yet, get a pet.
