People wouldn’t be recycling pets in a perfect world, yet such are the terrible times we live in. If you can’t wrap your head around recycling or cruelty-free lifestyles, consider adopting a pet instead. We’ve got to say, though, this is a wild marketing tactic to refer to adopting pets as taking on recycled items. We get the message the sign is trying to send, but yikes.
It’s a small but significant start. Animal shelters are full to capacity with happy, healthy pets just waiting for a new home. Adoption costs you next to nothing, discourages puppy mills, and helps build a more humane society.
Boxers always have their game faces on. These prime athletes already look like they’re having a bad day, so why ruin it for them with football? They would rather run and stand in the corner, waiting to jump on you when the bell rings.
You know, the way boxers do. These magnificent dogs don’t kick things around, only when they need attention. He’s just a poor boy looking for scratches, treats, and belly rubs. They always look a little grumpy thanks to their big jowls and big eyes. But really, they are just big sweethearts, and wouldn't hurt a fly in reality.
The Dreaded Cone of Shame
If your dog has ever withdrawn affection and hated your guts, chances are an Elizabethan collar is to blame. Their quiet rage and disgust are palpable — enough to make you feel like the worst human on the planet. But it’s part of the healing process.
We think the cone needs an urgent rebranding. Let’s stop calling it the "cone of shame" for starters. These are cones of bravery for the strongest dogs in the land. We get the animosity, though. If you had to wear an embarrassing article of clothing that advertised to everyone that you just had a procedure, and you can't be trusted to leave your wounds well enough alone, you would probably lash out, too.
Whimsical New Creatures
Thank heavens this isn’t ancient Greece, where mythical animals could kill you. There are no signs of a Minotaur or a Griffin anywhere, only cute dandy lions who have stolen our hearts. They sound like the life of the party. Although, a lion, however dandy, is still pretty dangerous, and you might want to think twice before getting up close and personal with it.
Joining him is the Collie-Flower — the beautiful love child of a sheepdog and a rose. We also have a hushpuppy — a tiny dog that can’t bark but is a canine work of art nonetheless. What a party.
It’s not every day that someone makes a case for autocorrect. Autocorrect is an annoying but a necessary evil. Most of us spend so much time on our smartphones that typing out every single word becomes a task. Most of us are too lazy to read what we typed before we send it. We trust that autocorrect will be our safety net and, failing that, hopefully, the context is enough for the other person to understand what we meant.
And let’s face it, some of us are terrible at spelling. Even spelling simple words can seem alien on some days. Autocorrect saves us time and embarrassment, and in this case, it could have been someone’s best friend.
