That works for us.

Dora The Reluctant Explora

Folks, grab a hankie. Dora got scared from fireworks, and she took off. Her family didn’t see Dora again for seven months.

Watch what happened.

No More Woof?

Ever wish you could find out what your doggeh REALLY wanted? Language, as opposed to barks and woofs. You know, like in the Pixar movie “Up?” Well, this Daily Dot article says you may not have to wait much longer to find out! (FOOD. SLEEP. WALK. PET ME.)

The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery have invented a gizmo called No More Woof. It’s supposed to scan your dog’s brain patterns and then translate them into hoomin speech. You get to hear the speech through a wearable microphone. The invention is still a work in progress, but it looks like they’re getting close!

Move Over, Let The Big Dog Eat

…and eat, and eat, and eat, and eat.

This is Freddie the Great Dane. Everything belongs to him.

Maybe I Can Hide This In Here

Wally The Sqwerl tries to hide his nut in the fur of Jax The Bernese Mountain Dog. Didn’t quite work out.

From Tastefully Offensive.

Let’s Try It Together, OK?

[Listen, kiddo. We're both hungry, right? Here's the plan. You open your mouth and howl. And I'll do the same thing. The hoomins will come running right away, saying "Is somebody hungry?" They'll literally throw the chow our way. Works every time.]

I KNOW I Left My Ball Out Here Last Summer??

Watch Millie & Betty The Bouncing Bassett Sisters go blasting through the deep powder in Alexa W.’s Michigan backyard. “This was taken yesterday in my backyard, after we got a fresh snowfall to add to what we had already. Their floppy ears, clumsiness, and happy faces are so adorable. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!”

(Don’t miss the SUPER SLO MO too- well done.)

Not Everyone Hates The Snow

Take Trousers, for example. If there’s something better than a Slo-Mo Sno Romp with The Moose, he hasn’t found it yet. (And lookit the Big Furry ‘Tocks bounding through the snow @ :23. And can there BE a better name than “Trousers?”)
