The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I took a trip to a pet store this week. That's kind of a lie, I only went in because it was on the way to another place I was going, but let's go with it! I was really hoping that this pet store would be the cruel kind of city pet store that actually… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

It's finally begun to be nice outside, and you know what that means: Going to the park and watching other people play with their dogs and feeling jealous that you're not playing with a dog but also feeling scared because the dog is off of its leash and you're nervous about whether or not it… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

One funny joke to say (already off to a very good start) is, if it's an occasion on which someone would buy you a gift, "Oh my god, did you get me a puppy?" And then when they deny getting you a puppy because first of all you can't even have one in your apartment,… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I have to tell you, choosing the arrangement of today's top three was VERY difficult. (In a world where "very difficult" means "I couldn't decided for a few minutes but then decided, and what I couldn't decide on was the order of cute animal videos in what is largely a very arbitrary list of cute… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

You can take our Wednesday afternoon, but you will never take...OUR...ANIMAL VIDEOOOS! This week we have a pretty normal array of videos, unlike last week when I… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

Have you guys seen the pictures of Grumpy Cat at SXSW? That cat gets around! And also: That cat is so small! And also: I am not a fan of memes, and I am specifically not a fan of the Grumpy Cat meme, but holy moly is that cat adorable! And also: Do you think… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

Do you guys ever try to make funny animal videos? I'm mostly asking because I have to think of something to say in this preamble before we get to the actual animal video meat of the post, but I'm also wondering WHO IS MAKING ALL THESE ANIMAL VIDEOS? People who love watching animal videos and… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I watched the Animal Planet show Too Cute for, like, two hours straight recently (you know what this show is, correct?) and realized that maybe my actual life's calling (rather than my currently known life's calling of putting together animal videos and celeb goofs) is writing the pointless dialogue and story lines that ru… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I found out recently that a friend of mine has gotten a new job at PetSmart, or some such, and part of her job is that she has to train the puppies and I know this is a probably not true when you actually have the job but, uh, THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE MOST PERFECT… More »

Did you guys watch the Puppy Bowl? I apologize if that seems like a ridiculous question. I only ask because, I hate to admit this, but I did not even watch one second of the Puppy Bowl this year, because I watched the Super Bowl at an apartment that did not get Animal Planet. Yeah. More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I hate to open this week's Petting Zoo on a bad note. As you know, the reason we come to Petting Zoo every week is to escape life's bad notes, and I apologize for taking that away from us for now, but you have to understand that sometimes life gets in the way. Today the… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I always talk about the weather here, at the beginning of The Petting Zoo, and I think that is because what else am I supposed to talk about? If I had it my way I'd just copy and paste "ANIMAL VIDEOS" over and over and over for a longer-than-reasonable amount of time and then we'd… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

One thing I like to do with The Petting Zoo is not only deliver the best animal videos the Internet had to offer in the past week, but also deliver the most exciting news of the animal entertainment world. It's a goal I set for myself and I surpass it ever single week, no matter… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

DID ANYONE GET A PUPPY FOR CHRISTMAS? I know they say that giving a puppy as a Christmas gift is not a good move for whatever reasons, like it'll make your kid too happy or fill everyone's hearts with too much joy or whatever, but that does not change the fact that opening a gift… More »

Ah, the final Petting Zoo of the year 2012. A day to remember, for sure. "What was your favorite day in 2012?" a friend might ask you at a party this week or next week. "Well, I'm not sure," you'll respond with a smile, "But I can tell you what the most bittersweet moment of… More »

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

I'm not sure how you feel about the length of animal videos, but as far I am concerned -- generally speaking, this might not be true about videos of like a monkey in a hot spring or an abnormally cute kitten rolling around, but in general -- the shorter the better. A five second cli… More »

What are you getting your pet for Christmas? I know I'm jumping the gun here and when the end of December rolls around I'm going to be kicking myself that I already blew the "what are you getting your pet for Christmas" topic, but what else am I supposed to talk about at the end… More »
