VIDEO: Game of Fetch Turns Perplexing For Dog

Let’s face it: dog videos aren’t nearly as funny as cat videos. I don’t know why — maybe it has something to do with the fact that cats always seem to think they’ve figured everything out. Once in a while though there’s a pretty funny dog video that comes along. Case in point: the above clip which features a beautiful lab named Dexter in a stunningly frustrating fetch situation.

Dexter, stop trying to make fetch happen.

Cute Homeless Animals Have Melted My Heart


I have been doing a lot of shilling on this blog recently, but as I always like to say, this is a blog, not the New York Times; so who cares? That being said, no one asked me to shill for this, and I rarely, if EVER, shill for charitable causes; however, when my friend Hannah sent a bunch of people this email, my heart kind of melted. I don’t know why. I see these “find this animal a home” postings all the time on Facebook and never care. I think it’s because I had a dream that I got a dog last night. Anyway, I’m feeling friendly today; so if you too are in a similar altered state, check out what Hannah has to say. If you live in LA, one of these guys could be your next pet:

Have You Ever Seen A More Shifty-Eyed Dog?


Some poor person has lost their dog, and by all means, I don’t mean to mock that (last time I did that, it turned out I was targeting the missing pooch of Alessandra Ambrosio). However, I must call attention to this “Lost” sign. I don’t think I have ever — outside of a cartoon — seen such a shifty-eyed dog. Seriously, all that’s missing is a thin mustache, a top hat, and a monocle. Or is he more of an Old West outlaw? You know, the kind that shows up on faded, yellow Wanted posters for killing Deputy Angus over by Dead Man’s Bluff. Okay, I’m talking nonsense now. All I do know is that this dog is up to no good, and if I didn’t know better, I’d say he wasn’t “missing” but rather on the run, riding the rails up to Montana where he’ll start a new life as barkeep or the manager of a general store.

This owner should clearly be counting his or her blessings because I’m fairly certain Satan himself has possessed that little guy.

(Of course it could just be a terrible photo, and the dog is really an angel, and some poor person is totally distraught over the loss of his or her faithful friend. Either/or)

A closer pic of the dog after the jump… (trust me, it’s worth it)
