Puppies do the 'Shake' in Photographer's New, Adorable Book

Hans, Boxer Pit Mix, 12 weeks (By Carli Davidson)

While we're in the midst of all things terrifying and beastly with the live zombie cam and Beastly Nights, we thought it would be good to take a break and feature something cute. And Carli Davidson's new book Shake Puppies is perfect for just that! You can pick up your own copy here, but we've got a sneak peek for you.

The book features about 70 puppies and Davidson photographed about 100 - each puppy requiring about an hour of photo shoot time.

"Shake Puppies was inspired by my friend Hanna Ingrams’s second grade class," Davidson said. "I showed the students a test presentation for Shake the day before it released, and their reaction was so moving that I decided to ask my favorite audience and professional connoisseurs of all out joy—kids—for a critique. What did they want to see? Their response: puppies and colors!"

Too Cute Tuesday: Germany’s First Walrus Pup is Born

 

On June 15, an adorable, whiskered male walrus pup was born at Hamburg’s Hagenbeck Zoo. But this isn’t an ordinary walrus pup.

Why? Because he is the first and only walrus to be born in Germany. The zoo’s website states that this group of walruses (the pup’s mother and enclosure mates) came to them about a year ago from the Moscow Zoo to fulfill the dream of Tierpark Hagenbeck to host the only walrus breeding group in Germany. And their dreams have come true! This little guy doesn’t have a name yet, but it will be decided by zoo visitors.

Sir Stuffington will be ready for adoption in a few months. On behalf of Animal Planet we'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to foster mom Blazer Schaffer for caring for Sir Stuffington until he is at a healthy and adoptable weight. We'd also like to thank all of the pet foster moms and dads out there. You are all an essential part of ensuring that all animals find happy and healty forever homes.

Too Cute Tuesday: Bashful Enjoys Some Donny Hathaway

 

So, do you all remember cute little Bashful from our first wonderful cast of the live kitten cam? Bashful-01-625x450

I'm sure you do. She was one of the cutest!

But I'm a little biased because I happened to adopt Bashful (now Etta) and Sleepy (now Otis). Taking them both home was perhaps the best decision I've made because they make life a lot more fun.

For example, here's Etta enjoying a little bit of Donny Hathaway on vinyl. It's good to see that she's got the same soul as her namesake (Etta James).
