Gang of dogs in Russia steal woman’s groceries


Some dog’s don’t deserve the title of man’s best friend.

The dogs that roam the streets of Moscow are known to be pretty intuitive; some of them have even been seen navigating the city’s complex subway system. But when it’s time for some grub, these dogs also know a quick way to score a bite to eat.

A group of three dogs were recently spotted ganging up on a poor woman exiting a grocery store. After a few moments of the dogs jumping on her, she finally gave in and handed the big one a loaf of bread. 

It’s unclear if the woman previously made the mistake of feeding these dogs or if they just run a food-stealing ring that operates out of the grocery store. Read more…

Eighteen-year-old Carly Dunn left her hometown of Duluth, Georgia this year and headed off to college. Unfortunately, no one thought to tell Bo, the family dog.

As a result, Bo still waits every afternoon for Carly to get off the school bus — just like she used to in high school.

Last week, Carly tweeted a photo of the loyal Bo alongside a text message from her mother. “Your old bus just went by,” it said. “Bo still hopes you are getting off after all this time.”

Please do not give your pets alcohol these holidays, or like ever


Not sure why, but there’s always someone out there who thinks it’ll be really funny to give an animal a sip of their beer.

Just a week after some jerks fed a native quokka UDL vodka from a can, the Australian Veterinarian Association (AVA) has condemned the all-too-common holiday past time of letting animals try your alcohol Read more…
