Dogs ‘n’ Doorstops

Not since Andy Devine said “Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy!” has anything twangy been such a hit as those springy doorstops. Dogs and cats love ’em!

They had to ban them in Scurveyshire, though. People were taking it all much too seriously.

Dogs vs. Bushel o’ Crabs

Prices having shot into the stratosphere, it’s been years since we had a dozen blueclaw crabs for supper. One thing about crabs that hasn’t changed: they take no guff from anyone. These dogs don’t know what they’re in for, if a crab should grab one by the nose or ear.

Kittens Stump Great Big Dog

All right, who’s the wise guy who put the kittens in the dog bed?

Videos like this make me really wish I could see the situation through the animals’ eyes. What do they think of this? What is going through their minds? We’ll never know.

Crazy Corgi, Cool Cat

I’m guessing the corgi wants to play and will do just about anything to get the cat involved. The cat wants to take a nap. He’s the only cat in a roomful of dogs. I know the feeling.

A Dog and a Horse and Fun

I never thought of a horse as a playful animal. But I don’t know much about horses. So when I see a horse and a dog romping together, I can’t help wondering, “Who put them up to this?” And you can’t get either of ’em to play poker.

Corgi Want a Cracker?

You had a cracker in your mouth, you silly dog, and then you spat it out so you could perform this weird ritual around it. Then you spat it out again before finally eating it and getting crumbs all over the rug. What was that about?

Doggy Phobias

Dogs have some funny fears. Orange peels. Climbing the stairs. Shadows. I’m especially intrigued by the dog who has to climb the stairs backwards. Why does he feel he has to do that? And what’s with the orange peel?

Priceless! Baby and Bloodhound Duet

Neither of them can sing, but this is a duo made in Heaven. Have you ever seen a cuter baby? Back and forth they go, the baby and the dog. I wonder which one of them will give up first.

A Rather Rude Dog

Rumor has it that dachshunds have been genetically modified to pull your pants off. You know the kinds of stuff the Pentagon gets up to.

So far it works best against babies. If our country ever has to fight an army of babies, we’ll be ready.

Furry Babes in the Woods

One toy, three puppies: can’t exactly share it, can they? So two of the pups will have to find something else to play with. Their choice turned out to be just the thing I would’ve chosen to play with. Y’know, guys, you might find a salamander under there…
