I don’t care if you’re old or young, rich or poor, Republican or Democrat — dogs that have no idea how their beds work are funny. We try to give our pets the very best, but do they really appreciate it? Over the years, I’ve bought countless beds for my two dogs, but they rarely sleep in them. The floor, the couch, and even the coffee table...

I’ve had some pretty rude teachers in the past, but nobody quite as abusive as this lady. In Mississippi, a student recently recorded a teacher as she pulled a special needs girl across the floor by her hair. It’s not clear how she supposedly misbehaved, but I’m sure we can all agree that she couldn’t have done anything to justify this shockingly...

Never underestimate a puppy’s desire to play! This little pooch has a less-than-enthused companion, but she’s still determined to strike up a fierce game of tug-of-war. When I got my first puppy, I was overwhelmed by her non-stop energy. I’d imagined us strolling in the park and cuddling on the couch, but she was more interested in chasing her ball...

Storm is an 18-month-old Staffordshire bull terrier. She’s just like every other pup — loves snuggles and going outside to chase squirrels, but she’s also in the process of training to break...

Are you craving a secluded vacation far away from everyone you know and the problems they cause? Look no further than Foula Island, the most remote and sparsely populated island both in Scotland and in Britain more generally. If you’re an animal lover, you have to add this destination to your bucket list. Here’s why. Foula is only three and a half miles...

When it comes to presidential election coverage, I typically try to avoid it at all costs by watching trashy reality shows with a bottle of wine. However, this presidential cycle has proven to be the gift that keeps on giving, so I decided to watch Sunday’s second presidential debate. Boy am I glad I did, because it was basically reality television — without...

When I was a little girl, my sister and I always pretended to be mermaids while we were swimming. We fervently wished they were real and that we could become them, but as we grew older, we obviously accepted the fact that these mythological creatures don’t actually exist. However, after seeing what one man found washed ashore on an English beach, I have to wonder...

There’s a widely-used expression that goes a little something like, “The love between a mother and her child is forever.” These words couldn’t be any more true. My mother is my best friend and most trusted confidant. I can’t imagine living in a world without her. Sure, at times she drives me absolutely crazy, but I’m pretty positive...
