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 run over the videos Too Cute shows of puppies playing with each other. “Uh-oh, Mr. Sweetie doesn’t like when his sister shares his lunch! He’ll let it go this time, but if she ever tries it again…” “Little Bubba has been wishing for his mom to come home all day. Not even playing in the pillows can ease his longing. ‘What about drinking from this bowl of water,’ he wonders. But — ah, no. Still looking around for mom! Where is she?!” Totally so stupid and totally probably the thing I should dedicate my life to. “Looks like little Ms. Danzig (NAMING puppies, however, is very difficult) wants to see some animal videos! But where will she find them? Underneath the bed? In the closet? After the jump?”

1. Baby’s First Steps Interrupted By Pooping Dog

AAAAAHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. Ahhhhh! Very good job, dog. Looks like somebody’s a little upset that a new baby has come home and stolen his thunder! (Again, practicing for Too Cute.) Perfect. Good job. Watching the Sea Lions get released into the wild is heartwarming, as is the wombat cuddling but that one is for a different reason. (The different reason being “only because it is insanely cute.”) (That reason goes for the seal pup, as well.) Sweet little sea otters round out the top five, making this the most Sea Baby heavy top five of all time! (Maybe!) (“Fox Likes Snickers” has been given last place in the top ten because CAN THAT FOX EVEN EAT SNICKERS? Very worrying. Very cute, but very worrying.)
