  1. Dogs Align Their Bodies with Earth’s Magnetic Field While Pooping, They Have So Much to Teach Us (About Poo)

    Excuse us while we go make sure our toilets are aligned for optimal pooping.

    There are instances in the animal kingdom of animals aligning their bodies with the Earth's magnetic field during certain movements, but dogs being walking poo compasses is our favorite example by far.

  2. Seattle Driver Sets New Record for Animal Cruelty by Locking Dog and Pig in Sweltering, Poop-Filled Car

    Technically, the car probably wasn't poop-filled before the driver locked these two poor animals inside it.

    Well, this is as good a day as any for your annual PSA reminding you not to leave your beloved pets locked in the car this summer. This friendly reminder is spurred on by a gruesome 911 call in Seattle reporting a dog and a pig locked in a car in the midst of the city's heat wave. It gets worse, though. When police responded to the call, they found both animals inside the car, the inside of which was smeared with feces. That was probably mostly the dog, though, as reports indicate that the large pot-bellied pig in the car was dressed to the nines in a pair of sweatpants.

  3. Snake Robot Teams With Dog For Search and Rescue Operations

    Carnegie Mellon University's unnerving snake robot is back in the news today, and not for its unnerving auto-strangle function, which we've talked about here previously. The snake-bot -- which was designed to be a maneuverable set of eyes and ears in disaster situations, delving into collapsed buildings and other areas that first responders may not be able to reach. Over the weekend, the team behind the project released footage of some of it's latest tests, where it's paired with a rescue dog that carries it into the building.

  4. Engineer Stops Train Just Short Of Hitting Puppy Tied To Tracks

    A train engineer in California is my new hero -- and hopefully yours -- for pulling the emergency brake on the train he was conducting earlier this month in time to avoid hitting a puppy that had been tied to the tracks by a 78-year-old man. The pup, dubbed Banjo by the animal shelter that has taken him in, is okay after his harrowing experience, though we assume he will bear a lifelong aversion to men with top hats and handlebar moustaches. Then again, who doesn't?

  5. Watch a Dog Try to Carry a Giant Stick Through a Gap That’s Too Small

    This dog gets an A+ for perseverance, but fails when it comes to spatial reasoning. It found a giant stick on one side of a fence, and wants desperately to get it to the other side, but oh noes! The stick is too big! That doesn't stop the dog from repeatedly smashing it into the fence trying to get it through. Of course the person filming this, I presume the dog's owner, eventually helps the dog get the stick through, but I kind of wish he let it try for a little longer. Silly puppy. That stick's too big!

  8. These Pooping Dogs Lamps Were Banned From an Art Exhibition

    Artist Whatshisname created these two lamps that portray pooping dogs, the bigger of the two dubbed Good Boy and the smaller dubbed Good Puppy. The switch to turn the bigger lamp on and off is actually the pile of curled poop found underneath the dog that you need to step on, so don't you worry, the poop is practical. The artist states that both of the lamps were set to be part of the Art Below exhibition at London Underground stations, but were banned from the show due to being offensive. If you'd like to get ahold of one of these lamps, you actually can, but it'll cost you.
