Dog With Hose Realizes He Has All the Power Now

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Caitlin Jill Anders from thedodo.com)

Humans like to poke fun at their dogs all the time. We laugh when they get themselves stuck in things and take silly pictures of them on the daily. So, when a dog gets a chance to enact some playful revenge, you better believe they are absolutely going to take it.

Cat Totally Baffled When Sassy Chicken Steals His Snack

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by By Anna Swartz from thedodo.com)

"This is my food now thankyouverymuch."

Cat is SHOCKED to Find He's Being Stalked by a Cucumber

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Stephen Messenger of thedodo.com)

House cats seem to take no small amount of pride in their graceful demeanor, strutting about like they own the place as little heirs to the "King of Jungle" mantle. But despite their apparent self-perception as unflappable sorts of creatures, sometimes it doesn't take much to make an otherwise cool kitty lose his composure entirely.

In fact, sometimes all it takes is a sneaky cucumber.

BREAKING: Animal Planet Launches Nationwide Search for AMERICA’S NEXT GROUNDHOG

 

Americas-next-groundhog-500w(Silver Spring, Md.) — Breaking News from Silver Spring, Md., where SEVENTEEN inches of snow fell overnight. With cold temps, ice, sleet and snow still upon us, there is little doubt that it is STILL.
