As we while away the dark and wintry doldrums, it's hard to believe that Spring is just a few short months away. Lest you forget about the sensation of kicking up your heels with the warm sunshine on your back, we bring you one adorable baby miniature pony doing just that.
Happy New Year! On the lunar calendar, today is the first day of the year 4709 and the start of Spring. The day also signifies the beginning of the Year of the Dragon, one of 12 animal symbols designated to each consecutive year. It's said that each person assumes characteristics of the animal from the year in which he or she is born, so we've rounded up the major traits of each Chinese zodiac creature. Maybe you'll learn a little more about yourself on this day of reflection and celebration!
Whee!! Forget flying. With a jar lid, a sloped roof, and a light dusting of snow, this bird has found the next big thing in extreme sports: crowboarding! No word on whether the IOC has added this event to the next Winter Olympics.
Nom, nom, nom. His name might be Nibbles, but we think that may be a misnomer, given the gusto with which this pup slurps his noodles. It brings to mind a certain romantic Disney duo and a delicious plate of spaghetti and meatballs, but Nibbles (or Nom-bles, as we think he should be called) may just outshine his cartoon predecessors!
While we give the cuteness factor a perfect 10, pups who'd like their own pasta dinners should note that some of the ingredients in tomato sauce (onions, tomatoes, oils, etc.) can upset a poochy tummy, so it's best to stick to plain, cooked noodles (and perhaps an ear scratch to make up for the lack of condiments).
To see the original spaghetti slurpers, keep reading.
This retriever enjoys a good guitar riff, cracking a canine smile, and bobbing his head with the beat. But when the music stops, so does his golden groove!
Lock up your mail, ladies and gentlemen: this cat is out for ink. Maybe the card came with a bag of dog treats, or perhaps it's just the incessant meowing of "Happy Birthday," but kitty is clearly ticked off and ready to wage war on the world's paper greeting cards. Good thing the cameraman is nearby to save this piece of correspondence from certain death since paper is not friendly to feline tummies.
Bergdorf Goodman and the Humane Society of New York partnered together to create a short holiday video called Unleashed. Get ready to see hilarious dogs scrambling throughout the Bergdorf Goodman store to find the perfect presents for their special someone. As for the lonely, homeless dog, his story has a happy ending too.
Casper's not sure what you're looking at. Don't all dogs have a personal massage therapist on call at bath time? You can stay and watch, but please don't make too much noise. You might disrupt his inner meditation.
We're not sure if this pooch's name is Daisy, but he'd sure look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two. Unfortunately for him, this bike is uncomfortably built for one.
