I’ll tell you why: Little Buddy and his coworkers keep themselves busy dogs all day by filing paperwork, sending emails, returning customer’s phone calls and keeping inventory updated. Sometimes their days can get very hectic when they get assigned way too much work from their boss. Little Buddy skips his breaks, eats lunch at his desk and even holds in his poops just to try to get the work done in time. The clock is winding down for the hectic dogs and deadlines…

A Minnesota lab’s joy ride came to an abrupt end today when the truck crashed into a tree and parked car. Police believe the dog shifted the truck-trailer into gear when his owner was inside a gas station. According to the news report, the crash didn’t get the dog down; he seemed very joyful afterwards (perhaps celebrating the beginning of his truck driving career?). Our advice? Don’t leave your dog alone at the wheel… unless he has passed has driver’s license test. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRsE7yTNxlc

A man working at a dog shelter posed an interesting question today: “With Donald Trump having major victory in several states, I thought, if Donald Trump were a dog, what kind of dog would he be?

By the looks of it, Luka was interrupted mid-Netflix binge watching session — and he’s not happy about it. “Luka come,” his owner commands. The husky cries. “Luka come. Get down,” his owner says again. Luka howls, sounding like “noooooooooo!” “Luka are you watching TV? Get down.” Now Luka is really upset. He stands up on the couch and howls, telling his owner off. “Mom! Just let me finish this one…

Fido is fast asleep in his bed, but all of the sudden he starts twitching and even moving his legs. It’s only natural to assume he’s dreaming about being in the dog park with his buds, running full power and being the first to fetch the stick. But what is he actually dreaming about? Do dogs even dream? There’s evidence that sleeping rats’ brains function in a way that suggests dreaming. So, it makes sense that more intelligent creatures with bigger brains, such as dogs, also dream. About 20 minutes into sleeping, a dog will enter a deeper sleep and…

Like us, Pomeranians also have their lazy days. “It’s time for you to get up. It’s 1 p.m,” the owner says. The Pomeranian whines (presumably asking for a few more minutes). “Get out of bed,” he persists. We’re not sure how it ends, but we bet the pooch won the argument and hit snooze just one more time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0eO2Dt32l0
