Mika - Doggie Guru

Born in Montreal Canada, I convinced my human to move all the way to sunny California, not only because my paws were freezing in the winter, but because I always knew I can reach a larger community here, in dog-friendly Los Angeles.

A Dogs View on the Appropriation of the word ‘Bitch’

In human culture, the word #bitch is used to mean two diametrically opposed things. 1. a cool, in control #badass chick or 2. a dumb, embarrassing, white-trash-acting stupid person, most commonly in reference to the female gender. However, it should be noted that males of the species use this derogatory term on other males as well. When they do, it’s with even more degrading intent...

The Mika Show – Ep. 1 – Day Drinking

Mika discovers mommy is day drinking and alerts Doug to this, hoping to get a treat for the information. Stupid Mommy. This is the first episode in my brand new youtube series, ‘The Mika Show’, featuring me, Mika! I’ll also be making fun of mommy a lot, discussing lots of topics related to meat and a dogs life on the hollywood strip.

Dog vs Imam Duet – Watch this Husky out sing the call to prayer

Maybe I’m biased, but I thought the husky won the #Dog vs Imam duet. His singing was much better than the Imam’s call to prayer and much funnier. There was nothing funny at all about the Imam’s singing. My father was actually an alaskan malamute, which is very closely related to Huskies. Can you see the resemblance? I tend to howl myself, but only when...

To Fetch or Not to Fetch? That is the question.

For as long as I can remember I realized I never enjoyed playing #fetch as much as other dogs. And society made me feel like that was a problem. I never shared that natural behavior with other dogs and until now I’ve felt ashamed to admit it. My History with Playing Fetch It’s not like I didn’t try the play fetch with my humans. I...

This guy’s ex-wife left him with nothing but a dog. So this is what he did…

Rafael Mantesso’s wife left him on his 30th birthday. She took everything with her: the cookware, the furniture and furnishings, all their photos — everything. The only thing she left Rafael was the #dog, a bull terrier named Jimmy Choo. ’With only Jimmy for company, I found inspiration in my blank walls and my best friend and started snapping photos of Jimmy Choo as he trotted and cavorted around the house in glee. When Jimmy collapsed...

It’s National Dog Day. Pretty Sure We Could All Use Some Doggies About Now

We were getting all ready to end this perfectly shitty news day by sharing photos of the new panda babies at the National Zoo, but even that story went all to hell this afternoon, with the death of one of the two cubs. Which honestly isn’t that much of a surprise, since giant pandas are extremely difficult to breed in captivity (but at least we’re...

14 Dog Breeds Most Likely To Survive The Apocalypse – BarkPost

Famous for its energy, intelligence, and tenacity, this is a breed built to survive whatever nature (or God’s wrath) throws its way. Call the Border Collie our prototypical Apocalypse Survivor and Thriver. It can outrun competing apex predators and prey alike, confound hostile intelligences (like aliens or mutants) with its complex maneuvers in the field, and it can apply its intellect to solve unfamiliar challenges...

Wolf-Dog Beside Himself Visiting Grandmother’s Grave – BarkPost

No worries, though. It can be triggered by pulling on the leash, general excitement, eating or drinking, and allergies, among other things. It produces no ill effects, and is pretty common in most dogs. For this guy, his human’s loss simply took his breath away.   Maybe it has something to do with shameless anthropomorphizing of our pets’ emotions, but this big boy named Wiley...
