My Dog Is Strange
That's what you're tweeting
When @the_bark tweeted my dog is strange—because, well, ours sure are—we were happy to discover we aren’t alone. There are lots of bubble-blowing, crazy-staring, cupboard-sleeping wonderfully odd pups out there. To find keep up with these canine eccentricities and to tweet into future conversations, follow us on Twitter, where we ponder weighty issues, such as our dog’s weird habits, most...

Ick, Ugh, Eeek!
Is it really fun to celebrate ugly dogs?
The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest (Dog Lover’s Festival, Sonoma-Marin Fair, Petaluma, Calif., June 25) brings out the buzz kill in me. Sweet, unsuspecting pups “celebrated” for tufted hair, bucked or missing teeth, disproportionate bodies, wrinkles and bumps, baldness and protruding tongues—many of these exaggerations introduced by breeders in the first place and sometimes creating very real health...

Lookalikes
Do you and your dog match?
Houston Pet Talk Magazine has recently announced one of my favorite contests—the human-pet lookalike. From June 1 to June 10, you can submit pictures for the chance to win cash. This contest includes pets of all kinds, but naturally my favorite are the dog-human couples.   It is always so fun to see those pairs who actually live up to the saying that people and their pets start to look alike. It’...

Ask Me About My Granddog
What’s your favorite dog-themed bumper sticker?
I was stuck in a little traffic yesterday, which could have been a major bummer except for the entertaining car in front of me. I had the good fortune to be behind one of those cars decorated from roof to hubcaps with bumper stickers, and many of them were dog-related. Naturally, they had Bark’s own “Dog is my co-pilot” prominently displayed on the actual bumper, suggesting it was one of the...

Dog Drool
You gotta love it.
Yesterday, I was listening to one of the Harry Potter books on CD as a way to motivate myself to clean my house. (It’s a losing battle, but I remain ever hopeful!) Anyway, what really caught my attention were the scenes with Hagrid’s dog Fang. I found it so amusing that the author always has Fang choose to be near Harry and to drool all over him. Harry never seems too thrilled, but accepts it as...

Invisible Dogs
Improv Everywhere stages an unusual canine takeover in New York.
What do you do with 2,000 invisible dogs? Walk them, of course! Last week more than 2,000 New Yorkers took to the streets of Brooklyn with invisible dog leashes. The results were amusing, but don’t take my word for it. Check out the photos on the website and the video below for a good laugh. Organized by Improv Everywhere, participants showed up having no idea what they would be doing. After a...

Not-So-Stupid Pet Trick
Bailey rocks Letterman with her last gasp.
When Bailey goes as limp as a rag in Mike Bower’s arms, I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Bravura performance by a Beagle--and a perfect antidote for anyone suffering a case of the Tuesdays.      Watch how without any crowd noise, Bailey gives a “killer” performance trying to land the gig as Milk-Bones spokesdog.
