Not all fruits are safe for dogs, but blueberries are perfectly fine. In fact, they’re a healthy, antioxidant-rich treat.
Unfortunately, this particular blueberry is on a glass table, and this dog is under it. She doesn’t seem to have quite grasped the concept of “glass,” though, and keeps swiping at the berry as if to scoop it out of the air.
It’s a tragedy, ultimately, but it’s still really cute. Read more…
The 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show crowned its Best in Show on Tuesday night, bestowing the honour upon a black standard poodle named Siba.
In usual circumstances we can all agree that all dogs are good dogs, and no dog is more good than others. But the Westminster Dog Show is not usual circumstances. Pitting pup against pup, this thunderdome forces its audience to evaluate the goodness of dogs against each other, whittling them down in a brutal competition to find the Best in Show.
The ritual was completed again this week, when the Westminster Dog Show bestowed the coveted title upon Siba. Indeed, few would disagree that Siba is a very good dog. Read more…
That’s one of the songs (along with any other remixes of the Baha Men’s 2000 hit) we’d include on the new Alexa smart speaker skill for your dog. Puppy Jams! is an iHeartRadio music skill that plays songs for your dog even if you’re not around.

After surviving Puerto Rico’s deadly Hurricane Maria, a group of rescued dogs have arrived in U.S. cities, ready for adoption.
In one instance, reported by the New York Post, a total of 53 dogs were scooped up by animal rescue group The Sato Project — and 28 of these are up for adoption in New York City (the rest have been distributed to shelters around the U.S.).

The new Lurvig collection, which means “hairy” in Swedish, made its pilot launch in five countries — Japan, France, Canada, U.S and Portugal (Algarve) at the start of October, an Ikea spokesperson told Mashable.
From a plush dog bed to a fancy scratching mat, Ikea’s pretty much got you covered.
In this video uploaded to Youtube by , a very helpful little pug scratches the back of his much larger pup friend. And the big dog can’t get enough. His leg is going wild from all the great doggie scratches.
Lil’ Pug saw his friend in need and stepped up to the plate with vigor. Someday we hope Big Dog will return the favor, but he’ll have to be careful. That pug is tiny.
The @dog_rates Twitter account is protesting Donald Trump’s #MuslimBan with adorable photos (naturally) and messages of love.
It started innocently enough on Saturday, during widespread airport protests railing against the Trump administration’s immigration ban — which affects an outsized proportion of Muslims. The WeRateDogs account shared a photo of a cute pup protester wearing a sign that read: “I wag 4 refugees.”
Here’s a very loving and accepting puppo. Appears to have read her Constitution well. 14/10 would pat head approvingly pic.twitter.com/6ao80wIpV1

Keep showing us up with your agile and adorable ways, Jumpy. You inspire us.
