We know that people love their pets, and rightfully so. They’re loyal, they’re kind, and they won’t tag you in random pictures on Facebook. But sometimes that love gets taken a little bit too far and veers over into the realm of a little bit crazy.
We’re not talking about just clothes — we’ve all seen those around — but rather things like fake testicles, perfume, and sex toys for dogs that prove people have too much time and money on their hands.
Don’t believe me? Check out these 30 certifiably insane products.
The Pet High Chair
They claim that “By providing an alternative to sitting on your lap, running disruptively underfoot, or outright banishment, the chair assuages a pet (and its owner’s) frustration, and promotes more refined behavior.” Or you could just let your pet be a pet for the 20 minutes that you’re eating.
We know that companies try to trick us all of the time, whether it’s with “new and improved” claims or just bright, shiny packaging. But there are also more subliminal — and clever — ways that they go about hoping to win your brand loyalty.
Some of the world’s biggest companies pay big money to designers, advertisers, and psychologists to dream up creative logos that convey an image you might not initially see — everything from an extra Hershey’s Kiss to a pair of McDonald’s “breasts.”
How many of these 26 “hidden” images revealed in plain sight did you initially miss?
This is one of the best known logo images, but just in case you’ve missed it, look between the “E” and the “x.” In the white space there’s an arrow that subliminally represents speed and precision.
Animals can teach us so much about compassion and resilience, especially when those two animals are thought to be incompatible with each other and both are going through an enormous amount of hardship as they start out their young lives.
You’ve heard of Crocodile Dundee, but how about Kangaroo Dundee? Chris “Brolga” Barns, star of the Kangaroo Dundee films in Australia, is a real-life hero to more than two dozen orphaned kangaroos in Alice Springs, Australia.
This adorable pup may be guilty of stealing Dad’s snack, but that doesn’t mean he has to admit it. He’s going to stand up for himself no matter what. I think you’ll agree he makes some pretty good points…
The stories of rescue dogs Norton and Evey were recently shared on imgur…and they will take you on an emotional roller coaster, so get your tissues ready.
We reached out to their rescuers and got permission to share their story here. They simply asked that we encourage our readers to donate time and money to local shelters.
Starving and Unable to Move
Norton was found on the side of a major street in Chicago. No one looked at him twice probably thinking he was dead. My wife stopped and picked him up when she realized he was still alive. He had no tags or chip.
Near the tops of the Tianshan mountain range in northwestern China lives a creature so adorable it’s hard to tell, at first glance, if it’s even real. The teddy bear-faced Ili pika, first discovered in 1983 by conservationist Li Weidong, had not been photographed for nearly twenty years until Weidong stumbled across one in July 2014. Now, after nearly two decades, we finally get to see what the little guy looks like, and it’s amazing.
If you’ve ever considered adopting a pet from a shelter, you know how hard it can be choose just one when there are so many animals deserving of your attention and love. That’s why these creative photobooth-style portraits of adoptable dogs at the Humane Society in Utah, taken by photographer Guinnevere Shuster, are such an ingenious idea.
The images, along with a description of the dog’s personality, are posted to the Humane Society’s Facebook page in hopes that more people will see them and be enticed to come meet them in person.
Shuster’s photos showcase the goofy, playful side of these dogs that show they’re anything but “broken” just because they need a home.
Here’s Fritz. He’s a 3-year-old golden retriever whose claim to fame online is his utter ineptitude at catching.
His YouTube channel “celebrates both Fritz’s unique inability to catch food and his positive, can-do attitude. While we all intently anticipate the day when Fritz masters the skill of catching food in his mouth, we also patiently embrace the journey.”
Here’s a compilation of said journey in all it’s klutzy glory…
When Patrick Smith went outside for a break recently, he heard some troubled tweets coming from a baby bird in a nearby bush. After he appraised the situation he solved the little killdeer’s problem and made the cutest, happiest video you’ll see today…
