cute video alert: pug goes for a swim

July 6, 2009 at 9:00 am (Animal Adoption, cute animal videos, Pet Adoption) (, , , , )

Alright, so there’s no back-story to this one. I simply stumbled across this ridiculously adorable video of a pug goin for a swim in a pool.

The reason it jumped out at me is because one of my bff”s, Cody, is absolutely obsessed with Pugs and can’t wait til he’s settled enough to adopt one. Yes, that’s right…ADOPT one. Because Cody’s much too smart–well in this case anyway–to ever, ever buy an animal. Haha, c’mon, that lil jab was damn funny!

In all seriousness though, there’s just absolutely, positively no reason to ever buy from a pet store or breeder, whether you insist upon having a purebred or not. Always adopt!

Okay, that was my plug. Now watch this cute-as-all-hell Pug.

Damn, I’m on a roll today! Ha.

Miss you, Cody!

Canadian Official Eats Raw Seal Heart…No Joke!

May 27, 2009 at 7:25 pm (animal rights, Canadian Seal Hunt, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

I’m not rendered speechless very often, not very often at all. But this story sure as hell left me at a total loss for words…well, temporarily anyway.

Thanx, flickr, for the crazy Jean image

thanx, Dimitri P, via flickr, for the great crazy Jean image

My stunned silence has since passed and I’m now able to say Canadian Governor General Michaelle Jean is utterly disgusting and her actions earlier this week are beyond comprehension.

I’ll start by setting the background. See, the European Parliament understands the annual Canadian Seal Hunt is vicious and cruel. As a result, they voted earlier this month to implement a ban on the selling of some seal products. The EU ban prohibits large scale trading of seal fur and other products throughout Europe. It’s set to be signed into law in late June. 

This ruling apparently did not go over too well with Jean. In her attempt to show support for Canadian seal hunters, the governor general decided to go crazy hardcore…crazy being the operative word here. During a community festival on Monday, Jean allegedly knelt in front of a number of seal carcasses, sliced into one of the animals and then, doing her best Hannibal Lecter impersonation, asked the woman next to her, “Could I try the heart?”

Yes, that’s right people, Jean then proceeded to swallow the raw seal’s heart whole! And animal rights activists are called extreme…really?!

I’m envisioning Jean eating the heart, licking her lips and then asking for a glass of Chianti.


And if you’re wondering whether or not the seal hunt is cruel, watch this video and decide for yourself.

Rat + Cat Love, Part Deux

May 14, 2009 at 8:07 pm (cats, cute animal videos, rats) (, , , , )

So a few weeks back I showed you lovely, animal-lovin fools an adorable video depicting true love if it ever did exist. Many who saw it wondered if the unlikely relationship lasted or if it–like many doomed loves before–fizzled in the end.

Well thankfully the brilliant “directors” behind the first video documenting this torrid love affair, chose to release a sequel.

And for all you haters out there–and let me just tell ya, lilmissvegan is one of ’em–this vid proves that true love really does exist…well for rats and cats at least.

Rat+Cat=True Love, Baby

April 19, 2009 at 10:51 pm (cats, cute animal videos, rats) (, , , , , , )

Unbelievably cute. Almost too cute for words.

This video proves that, unlike many humans, animals are definitely not speciests.

And they don’t care about social norms. They could care less what others’ think. They don’t worry about being shunned by society or their individual social groups. And they don’t fear backlash for daring to step out of the box.

I say all of this because I’m guessing that in the rat world, it’s totally not cool to hang with cats. In fact I imagine rats see cats as being beneath them. Mean, slow and not nearly as witty.

And I’m sure in the cat world, it’s beyond faux-paw (haha. get it?) to make friends with a measly mouse or rat. After all, they’re to be hunted, not befriended.

That’s why I just love this video. It totally defies all social norms in both the cat and rat worlds.

If only us humans could be so unbiased.

Ninja Cat Creepin’

April 18, 2009 at 11:03 pm (cats, cute animal videos) (, , , , )

Okay, so it’s a no brainer that I love animals.

I’ve got two kit kats, Kingston and Monroe, and one nine-year-old pup named Bailey.

I take tons of pics of the three of them…way too many I would imagine. Anytime I get the chance, I also try to grab some video footage. The crazy ass shit they pull on a daily basis truly needs to be documented. They do stuff most people wouldn’t believe without seeing…which is exactly why I grab the video camera, ya see? 😉

Unfortunately I have yet to film an amazing clip like the one below. Kingston and Monroe just haven’t been very cooperative actors as of late. It’s incredibly disappointing as a director, and as a parent. One day the spotlight will be their’s…one day.

Anyway, for now, it’s ninja cat’s day. Ninja cat’s been taking the web by storm for months now. And although many of you may have already seen the video, I don’t think it’s possible to ever get tired of watching it.

For you first timers, I happily present to you…ninja cat.
