Attention, aspiring canine stars of Vine: You're going to need to try harder. Buster Beans rollin' up to his crew with some Chamillionaire blaring in the background is simply perfection.
We won't say how many times we've watched this 7-second clip on loop, but it's...um, it's a lot.
What's black and white and adorable all over? Border Collies.
We've been checking in (via YouTube, of course) on this litter of six puppies since shortly after they were born on June 20. The two female and four male pups were born to mom Luna in Fillmore, Calif. And we just can't get enough of them.
It's the Monday morning after a long holiday weekend.
We know how you feel, Jaz. We know how you feel.
It's official: Pygmy marmosets look absolutely adorable when they eat macaroni noodles. We're pretty sure it's going to take this little guy all day to enjoy his snack though.
You may be shocked by how tiny the marmoset looks in comparison to his noodle, but pygmy marmosets are the world's smallest true monkeys — bested in this category only by the pygmy mouse lemur, which is technically a primate but not a monkey. According to the National Zoo, adult pygmy marmosets grow to be about 5 inches long (with an 8-inch tail!) and weigh somewhere between 4 to 7 ounces.
Happy Hump Day! We're celebrating with a trio of puppy live cams (courtesy of The Pet Collective) to get you through the rest of the week.
Golden Retriever Puppies
First up is the Golden Retriever cam. This stream features 11 (yes, 11!) puppies born at the end of May to mother Bliss (who's from the Netherlands) and father Dublin (who hails from Ireland). The dogs don't have names yet, so their humans call them by their collar colors, i.e. Mr. Green, Ms. Purple and Ms. Yellow. Oh, and they do puppy aerobics every afternoon.
Here in America, the most famous predictor of the seasons is, of course, Punxsutawney Phil. But across the pond in England, some prognosticating penguins are ready to give the groundhog a run for his money.
"While most people put themselves on a strict diet in preparation for a summer on the beach, penguins are the exact opposite and do everything they can to fatten themselves up," said Adrian Walls, the zoo's head of birds, in a release.
Once a week, the penguins each hop onto a scale before hitting the pool for their morning swim. And lately, their more plump shape is a definite sign that warmer weather is coming in England — and that the penguins will shed their old feathers and grow a new set, just in time for summer.
