HOT dogs: Veterinarian sits in a hot parked car for 30 minutes to show how it affects your pets

Veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward ain’t messin’ around when he demonstrates just how HOT it can get in parked car in over 30 minutes even with the windows slightly rolled down. Guess what? It gets deadly hot!

This demonstration isn’t just for folks with pets, either. It also applies to the assholes who leave their kids in cars.

This reminds of me of the time I saw two miniature schnauzers left to bake in a BMW parked in an IKEA parking lot. It must have been at least 95 degrees that day. The dogs were pawing at the windows and barking furiously. People were just standing around the car, looking confused, but not doing a damned thing. I alerted the IKEA staff to the situation immediately and they paged the owner of the car, but no one showed up to rescue the pups. The police were then called.

Little dog totally HATES recreating the famous chocolate scene from ‘I Love Lucy’

Meet Kiwi. A pug who looks befuddled and humiliated beyond belief that her human would subject her to recreating the chocolate scene from I Love Lucy.

Kiwi totally has the classic canine “Why the fuck am I here?” expression going on.

PS: Don’t try this at home! Chocolate (like grapes, cannabis and onions) is toxic for dogs.

The 1970s, when cocaine accessories were made from the tusks of endangered species

Opulence at its most disgustingly finest seen here in a 1970s mail-order ad for hand-carved ivory coke accessories. Apparently this ad was featured in High Times and Playboy.

Each of our exotic spoons, straws, and vials is delicately carved by skilled artisans from the finest center cuts of imported African ivory…the ideal coke surface. Ideal, because moisture does not condense on it, no particles will stick to its surface. The unique quality, coupled with the exquisite beauty of each hand carved design, makes each piece worth its weight in snow.

Kill an elephant, do some blow. Yuck.

San Diego Airport has a bathroom for dogs

San Diego Airport Dog Bathroom
 
The absolutely incredible image of a dog bathroom sporting a fire hydrant, above, was taken at the San Diego International Airport.

As of 2009, the Department of Transportation has apparently required all airports to make sure that there are pet relief areas available for any passengers traveling with service animals. The website Petfriendlytravel provides a handy guide to pet bathrooms across the US, and confirms that there is indeed a fire hydrant in the San Diego location:

San Diego International has three pet and service animal relief areas. One is located outside between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. At the Commuter Terminal, go to the west end; the area is located outside the terminal entrance. There is also a post-security animal relief area in Terminal 2 West, complete with fake grass, hand-washing station and a fire hydrant.

Redditor skippuy snapped a photo of his friend’s pig with what appears to be Yoda growing out of its forehead.

But what does this mean?!

Dog pushes wheelchair-bound man through flooded street

No one on the Internet seems to know the provenance of this Russian video uploaded to YouTube on June 8, featuring a man in a wheelchair being pushed by his dog friend through a flooded street.

This gives a brand new meaning to “man’s best friend,” doesn’t it?

Like watercolors of cartoon roadkill, these (rather fab) paintings of “Failed Taxidermy” are by Magnus Kallas, designer, artist and man behind the NSFW “guide to gutter culture,” Flash Glam Trash.

I am quite taken by these wonderfully affecting paintings, which are like finding those long, lost toys (once held precious) discarded in an attic…or, perhaps in this case, a cold, dank cellar.

Still, I’d rather have my favorite pet remembered in a painting like this, rather than having the dear heart stuffed.

View The awful art of failed taxidermy here, and more of Magnus Kallas’ work and web designs here.

Woman humped to death by camel

According to this Australian newspaper clipping, a 60-year-old woman was humped to death by her 10-month-old pet camel.

The perplexing mention of the cup of tea on the table is a fairly random element to introduce into this story, don’t you find?

I’m not posting this video to preach about vegetarianism or veganism, so spare me the grief (I still enjoy a good steak from time to time, even if it’s not often) but this little boy philosophizing about his octopus dinner is damned adorable.

Redditor Phormicidae sums up this sweet video quite nicley:

His philosophy is based solely on an emotional desire. What’s so touching is such deep compassion forming so early.

And on that note: “If you don’t eat your octopus, you can’t have any pudding, how can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your octopus!”
