Pet Celebrities (31)
We’ve always known those feline Internet sensations were destined for bigger things. Now, several of our favorites will appear in the documentary Lil Bub & Friendz, which debuts at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on April 18.
The 65-minute film, produced by VICE, follows the lovable perma-kitten Lil Bub as she and her owner, Mike Bridavsky, hit the road to meet other cat celebrities.
They include Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce), who always looks like she’s frowning; Keyboard Cat, known from a video shot in the 1980s that was posted on YouTube in 2007; and Nyan Cat, a cat animation with the body of a Pop-Tart who flies through space to a Japanese pop song.
At less than a year old, Sir Charles Barkley is winning the hearts of dog lovers and basketball fans alike.
March Madness is wrapping up shortly, but we’re not talking about NBA basketball legend Charles Barkley (who, by the way, has provided some of our favorite commentary of the tournament).
The pup, who will celebrate his first birthday next month, is owned by a Melissa and Paul, from Seattle. Melissa told ABC News that Paul picked the name because he’s a big basketball fan, and Barkley is “the perfect name for a dog.”
“We wanted an Instagram for him, but we didn’t want to blow up our own Instagram account,” Melissa told ABC. Looks like that was a good move!
We love checking out Society6 for all kinds of artsy and pop culture-inspired cases for our iPhones, so you can imagine how pleased we were to discover its impressive assortment of Grumpy Cat iPhone covers.
Come to think of it, though, we imagine Grumpy Cat herself would not be so pleased.
There's American flag Grumpy Cat, Grumpy Cat reading Garfield, Grumpy Cat in black and white, and even Grumpy Cat interrupting (and not being impressed by) Sandro Botticelli's famous painting, The Birth of Venus.
You get the picture: Tardar Sauce wouldn't like any of these. But as unimpressed as our favorite sulking feline would be by these covers... we still love them.
It's Inauguration Day, and while the focus will be on President Obama's swearing-in, we're looking forward to four more years of Bo in the White House. Bo the dog, we mean.
You can show your support— or your baby's — of the First Dog with this adorable paw print onesie. Made from 100% organic cotton, the "I PAW BO" design will be relevant long past Inauguration Day. And we can't help liking that it's both an endorsement of the Obama's pup and of the president himself (because you know, Barack Obama = BO).
If the onesie isn't for you, the Presidential Inauguration store has some great keepsake buttons for $5 each: I PAW BO and our favorite, Snow Bo (featuring a photo the real Bo in front of the Presidential seal).
Most pets are sweet, loving and kind. But what if we knew what they were really thinking, plotting or saying about us? These five badly behaved pets will make your pets look like angels!
Colonel Meow, a fuzzy-faced, foul-mouthed, crazy-eyed Himalayan mix, has taken Facebook by storm with nearly 109,000 “minions” who “like” his page. The Colonel plots world domination, bosses his sidekick Golden Retriever, Boots, around, and orders his enthusiastic followers to #spreadthefrown.
His only weakness? He’s scared of birds.
Hoping for a new iPad this holiday season so you can watch funny dog videos on the go? Be sure to get yourself a case to keep it safe — and cute! We recommend this super adorable Boo case from Urban Outfitters. Because your iPad deserves to be as cute as possible. Just like Boo.
The slim, sturdy plastic case, featuring a photo of Boo the World's Cutest Dog, snaps securely to the back of your iPad. A carefully placed opening frees up the camera so you can shoot photos and videos of your own world's cutest dog. The case fits the iPad2 and the new iPad. We know Boo asked Santa for an iPad — and we can only assume he'll be getting this case for Buddy.
The day we've been waiting for has almost arrived! We're ready to get our hands on what is sure to be one of the juiciest, most gossip-filled tell-all books of the year: Uggie's memoir!
The much-anticipated book Uggie: My Story hits shelves tomorrow. It's been almost six months since The Artist actor inked his book deal with Simon & Schuster, and the time hasn't gone by quickly enough!
From his Hollywood Walk of Fame star to his sniff of success at the Golden Collar Awards, we're sure the canine celebrity has plenty of showbiz secrets to divulge. Watch Uggie give the manuscript his paw-stamp of approval in the video below.
In this video supporting President Obama's reelection campaign, the First Dog's owners talk about their relationships with the now 4-year-old family pet — like how Barack only sometimes lets Bo on the couch. And Michelle owns up to letting the dog onto the bed when the president is away.
Happy birthday, Bo!
He was born on the Fourth of July, but we're guessing Spangles' favorite holiday is Halloween. The feline sensation has taken the Web by storm, with 20,000 Facebook fans anxiously awaiting his next costume choice.
The 3-year-old cat was born cross-eyed but can see perfectly fine, according to his owner, Mary Buchanan of South Carolina. She shoots pictures of Spangles dressed up (as a dinosaur, reindeer and more), and posts them on his Facebook page. It all started with one striped costume.
"I saw a tiger hat at Petsmart and thought it would look so cute," she says. "So I bought it and put it on him. He loved it!"
The rest, as they say, is history. Buchanan admits she's a bit surprised by how famous her feline has become — but luckily, the limelight hasn't interrupted his daily routine. Says Buchanan: "He's being as lazy as ever."
