It's Monday, which is bad, but here are some dogs in cosplay, which is good

It’s Monday and, because it’s Monday, you may still be shaking cobwebs out of your brain, looking out at the week ahead with a vague sense of horror at everything that lies in front of you. Something deep inside may be recoiling at the prospect of the distance between now and the next time you don’t have to get up and…

Controversy once again envelops WeRateDogs, a Twitter account about rating dogs

Twitter account WeRateDogs has become one of the great focal points of modern dog adoration, thanks in part to its sheer overwhelming enthusiasm. Pretty much every dog gets way more than the 10 allotted points, often with affectionate commentary like “would floof again” or “good boy levels off the heckin charts.” Last…

Roseanne is already back on Twitter, so who wants to look at some pictures of cute doggos, instead?

It’s one of those general maxims of online life that anybody who says they’re quitting social media probably isn’t, especially if they’re a high-profile person in the process of being yelled at by most of the rest of the internet. Even so, Roseanne Barr’s decision to “leave Twitter” this afternoon, after people got…

Please enjoy all the good boys and girls at this dog-friendly Isle Of Dogs screening

We still have questions about the logistics of the dog-friendly screenings for Wes Anderson’s new film Isle Of Dogs that have been taking place across the U.S. this week—Do the dogs bark when they see the other dogs on screen? Can dogs even eat popcorn? (Yes, according to the American Kennel Club)—but as long as they…

Adam Cayton-Holland has too many goddamn dogs in an exclusive clip from his new album

As you surely already know after opening the last door of your puppy advent calendar earlier this morning, tomorrow is National Puppy Day, the day we celebrate how cute it is when puppies’ paws are too big for their bodies. We’re not sure if Denver-based comedian (and ex-A.V. Club columnist) Adam Cayton-Holland knew…

Please continue to dress your big, dumb dogs up for Halloween

It’s Halloween! Sure, it’s a great time for adults to don costumes in a show of whimsy, but it is a much, much better time for children to wear costumes as a display of their carefree, imaginative nature. And you know what’s even better than kids in costumes? Animals, who do not give a shit and often do not even…

Read This: Why are we obsessed with dogs dying in movies? 

Here’s one way to make us hate a character: Have them kill a dog. It’s how we meet malevolent political monsters like House Of Cards’ Frank Underwood and The Dead Zone’s Greg Stillson (in the book, at least); it’s how we know Alfie Allen’s rich brat villain has gone too far in John Wick; and it’s how we realize the…

Here is the mighty dog who rules as a god-like deity to dozens of hens

One of the most popular sub-genres of internet animal videos is the “unlikely friends” video. You know the type: a cat and a dog napping together, or a turtle giving some food to a fish, or whatever. And yet there is another sub-sub-genre of internet animal video still: that is, the unexplainable inter-species…

Kendrick Lamar will teach your dog to sit down, be humble

Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” is about many things, but it is mostly about Kendrick Lamar, the consensus pick for “best rapper alive,” riding roughshod over all other claimants to the throne. The track’s central assertion that we sit down and be humble is also an implied acquiescence to the rulership of Lamar, a rulership…

Read This: The dog-owning antihero is the male version of the crazy cat lady

Inspired by the upcoming Bruce Willis action/comedy(?) Once Upon A Time In Venice, John McDermott from MEL wrote up a detailed history of a character almost as old as the story itself: the dog-owning antihero. If you’re a fan of brooding action movies, this is likely an archetype you’re familiar with. He’s emotionally…
