chihuahua funny kim jong un
kim jong un sadKim Jong Un Cries for His Dog – Photos of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were leaked today that appear to show the young leader falling apart emotionally. Although it can’t be confirmed, sources say that Un, (aka “the great successor to the revolutionary cause”) was distraught after learning that new U.N. sanctions would threaten imports of the high end dog food brand that he feeds to his Chihuahua.

In response to the dog food sanctions, Un threatened to turn Washington D.C. into a sea of fire, or possibly even release a sex tape if that didn’t get enough attention.

brussels griffon devil dog

ewokBrussels Griffon Devil Dog – What an awesome photo of “Noodle Brains,” looking like a surly little devil for Halloween. (He looks like he’s about to say, “Eh… what do you want from me?)

The Brussels Griffon, or “Griffon Bruxellois” hails from Brussels, Belgium (home of Jean Claude Van Damme!) and is known for being a both a lover & a fighter; often getting into trouble by trying to dominate larger dogs.

I guess I’m not the first person to say that the Brussels Griffon looks like an ewok, (Star Wars) but the resemblance is uncanny. Oh well, maybe next Halloween!

theo british bomb sniffing dog honored

Army Dog Honored With Dickin Medal: British soldiers recently gathered to honor their fallen comrade, Theo, a Springer Spaniel who searched for roadside bombs in Helmand province, a Taliban stronghold in Afghanistan. Theo died of a fatal seizure hours after his owner, Cpl. Liam Tasker, was killed during a firefight, but Cpl. Tasker’s mother insists the dog died of a broken heart.

Shortly after his death, Theo was awarded the prestigious PDSA Dickin Medal, which is Britain’s highest award for bravery by an animal.

dickin medalThe Dickin Medal itself was established in 1943 by Maria Dickin to honor animals that served valiantly with the British army, “acknowledges outstanding acts of bravery displayed by animals serving with the Armed Forces or Civil Defence units in any theatre of war, worldwide.” Theo is the 28th dog to receive the award out of a total of 64 medals.

Interestingly, pigeons are the only animal that have won the Dickin Medal more times than dogs, with 32 winning for their efforts during WWII. (It sounds crazy, but consider that pigeons are consistently ranked with dogs in lists of the world’s smartest animals.)
