    Dogz Gotz Smartz

    You know when you read an article that reports on information you’ve known for years, and you find yourself sitting smugly going “Well, DUH!?”. Then read on, vainglorious [but infinitely wise] comparative psychologists:

    New research shows that we have grossly underestimated both the scope and the scale of animal intelligence. Primatologist Frans de Waal on memory-champ chimps, tool-using elephants and rats capable of empathy.

  • Oscar’s Law – end Puppy factories

    It’s time to end the shameful and cruel treatment of our companion animals, who are suffering on puppy factories and need our help. Oscar’s law is a very simple campaign: it enables everyone to make a stand and tell the Government that “We do not want companion animals factory farmed anymore” and “We no longer want the pet industry to mislead us about what is acceptable for our pets”.

    You can help fight the genocide in Australia’s pounds, promote rescue organisations and no kill shelters as the first option to adopting, and change the way Australians gets their pets. Adoption is the intelligent alternative to impulse buying. No puppy factory whether it is “clean”, “model”, “state of the art” or otherwise is the answer for mans best friend.

  • #Dogs Dressed As Superheroes: Saving The World With Cuteness

    Life would much easier if dog superheroes existed. We’re not saying it would be perfect, but we think the world would be a safer place if dogs were out there saving lives (and digging holes with super-canine speed). To bide the time until that day comes, we’ve collected some of the cutest superdogs we could find. We know that some of these aren’t technically superheroes in the classic sense, but c’mon, they’ve got funny costumes on. Now’s not really the time to get nitpicky.
