MAAAANGOOOO! It’s Summertime (apparently) & Mango The Scottish Fold Is What We All Need!

July 22, 2012

It’s too early (for me) to be posting on a Sunday morning, but as I have a lot to do today, I may not have time tonight, so I thought I’d give you all some Sunday brunch cuteness.

Meet Mango, the little orange (or mango coloured) Scottish Fold. There’s so much awwing awwesomeness in this clip that you probably won’t need sugar on your cereal.

So, enjoy your Sunday, give your fur babies some extra love (just because), and check out our July special for your pet’s grooming needs. It’s $6 off our Organic Lavender & Cashmere bundle of natural shampoo and conditioner for dogs. This means your dog will not only have the shiniest and softest coat in all the dog park, but smell the best, too.


Friday Cuteness Trifecta – Part 3… Golden Retriever Dare Devil Rules!

July 20, 2012

Sadly, this brings an end to the cuteness parade of today. But never fear! There are plenty more cute and adorable animals out there, and as Scarlett O’Hara once said, ‘tomorrow is another day’.

I do love how this dog’s human friends are so thoroughly entertained by spending an evening of getting the dog to jump over them. The dog is like, ‘Ok! PLAY TIME! YAY! Can we do this ALL the time!!!???!!! Can we, can we, can we???’.

He’s also very smart when he gets to the human hurdle trifecta!

And remember, if you’re in the market for a pet, please check out the shelters first. The more dogs and cats that find a forever home, the more places there are for the homeless ones in no kill shelters and it’s one less animal waiting on death row. Plus they’re just so wonderful and full of love.

Watch the video. Enjoy!


Cuteness Friday Trifecta – Part 1…Puppy Gets Stuck in Sleeve

July 20, 2012

Oh boy, after waking to the horrific news of the crazy ‘I’m the Joker’ gunman bursting into a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado last night and killing 12 people, and injuring nearly 60 more (including a 3 month old infant), I think we all need a little cuteness in our lives – as soft and fluffy and adorable as possible.

Above we have an adorable puppy who got stuck in a sweater sleeve. I know, I know, we all feel bad when someone laughs at a cute animal getting stuck or tangled up in something. That person should help, we say. But if it’s ever happened to you and your pet, you want to help, you really do, but you end up simply laughing so much you can’t move. You’re helpless. Honest.


Chloe The Corgi Tests iPad 2

July 8, 2012

I was going to bring you some hard hitting stuff today, but it’s a Sunday, and it’s hot and I just went to the gym again for the third day in a row after being lazy for a year and using my bike as a clothes rack (yes, the bike is still a temporary clothes rack, which I need to change), so I just hurt.

Instead, I’ll bring you some more serious reports tomorrow, when I’ll hurt more and be grumpy and in honour of the fact it’s Monday.

Here’s Chloe the Corgi over at tested.com, testing out an iPad.

Everyone has seen a cat test an iPad, and how cats think they’re interesting and potential toys/things cats can kill (cats everywhere: we cats can kill whatever we feel like killing). But a dog’s view? Chloe doesn’t know what to do with it and noses it over to her human. Then she pokes it with her nose. Finally, Chloe has had enough of this weird thing that doesn’t give her food or treats or take her for walks. It’s weird, it’s alien and scary. What does she do?

Bark at it. A lot.

Basically, cats rule and dogs drool when it comes time to test out new human tech. But dogs have the market cornered on ‘fetch’ and ‘it’s mine’ (dogs everywhere: cats don’t know HOW to play fetch. Dumdums).

Enjoy.


Simon’s Cat’s Guide To Boxes

July 5, 2012

I think you all know by now how much we love Simon’s Cat around here.

Well, even though it’s not a new video, the awesome Simon of Simon’s Cat fame has drawn us this fantastic cartoon of how cats see different boxes.

Considering I have a black cat who is sleeping in a dilapidated box that sits in his dog bed (he’s a big, manly cat, okay? He’s not fat, but manly. Tall, long, with a magnificent tail and one regal white whisker he’s apparently just grown in the past couple of months), because he won’t sleep in his bed if there is a box around; I get cats and boxes, and I know you cat people will, too.

If you want more wonderful Simon’s Cat things, then click to see his website. It has all the videos, merchandise and a whole bunch of fantastic cartoons!

Happy day after Independence Day (thank goodness we weren’t invaded by aliens…).

Enjoy.


Happy 4th Of July, Fellow Royal Pet Clubbers

July 4, 2012

While you’re still most likely celebrating America’s independence from the Brits, full of delicious beer, hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob, potato salad, steak (I want steak), wine, vodka and goodness knows how much yummy desserty things, celebrating while watching lovely firework displays, think of me.

At home. On the computer. Slaving away just so you can see some awesome patriotic dogs for the night cap of the evening.

Yes. I’m foregoing all celebrations to scour the Interwebs for the perfect end for your perfect 4th of July.

The video is short and sweet and the dogs are super cute.

Did you dress your pet for the 4th? Why not send us a pic? We’d love to see.

In the mean time, happy 4th of July!!!


Pawdele, Digging In The Deep (A Dawgtastic Dogcover Of Adele’s Rolling In The Deep)

June 30, 2012

Okay, so for what’s left of your Saturday night, and indeed, your lazy Sunday morning (official start time: 1pm), we have a parody (a dogody?) of Adele’s song, Rolling in the Deep, barked by Pawdele, and also starring a rather gorgeous black cat (all black cats are fantastic and amazing and deserve to be spoiled  (even though this one isn’t as goodlooking or incredible as me, he’s still a black cat)- Marvin the Cat).

Now, here’s the thing. What is going on in this video? Okay, I admit it, I’ve never heard the Adele song (at least, I don’t remember it…well, I should say, if I did, no one told me it was a song by Adele), so I’m a little in the dark. Why all the feathers? What do the tennis balls mean? Why did the dog smash the pics? Why is the house all suddenly packed up, but the dog is sitting there? And again, the black cat…is he in the attic? Is this some weird animal version of Great Expectations? Can a cat be Miss Haversham (spelling???)? There are so, so many questions.

Watch it. Enjoy. And please, comment so I can know. Don’t make me go and watch the original. Because that would be, like, work.
