The first time we saw Boston Dynamics’ SpotMini robo-dog in action, it used its gripping arm to help load a dishwasher. But after getting a fancy new yellow coat a few months ago, SpotMini has apparently since learned how to open doors, enabling the robot, and its comrades, to escape a life of servitude.
The California Highway Patrol has successfully rescued a chihuahua using the quick reflexes of a motorcycle cop and the penetrating stare of infrared camera mounted to an airplane.
On Nov. 9 in an apartment parking lot in Dalton, Georgia, a dog went ape-shit on a Dodge Journey (an automobile that falls squarely in the “unfortunate” category) in an effort to catch some cats hiding in the engine bay. The car’s owner was livid, and asked a responding officer to shoot the canine. Here’s a video of…
A welding instructor in Surry County, North Carolina, discovered a dog trapped in the engine bay of a car , so she and one of her students sprung into action, breaking out wrenches on a mission to save the pooch.
Need to feel a little bit better about everything, forever? I figured you might. Luckily, that’s possible by watching these two Shiba Inus (ignore that lazy one sleeping in the foreground) lean like pro motorcycle riders as they’re driven around in what I think is a little Kei van.
Some dogs are very good dogs, and those very good dogs might want to dash off the hiking trail or you know, chase squirrels in a city park not during off-leash hours. Rad Dog’s Release N Run Leash is a great treat for those good dogs and their owners.
Few things are happier than a man and his dog. If that man happens to drift cars, naturally, he’s got to figure out a way to take his dog along for a ride. Behold, pure happiness in video form.
During last weeks’s blazing hot Pirelli World Challenge test day at Circuit of the Americas, one guest was a bit hairier than all the others, and much happier if you scratched behind his ears. Meet Turbo, a stray dog who the RealTime Acura team just couldn’t leave in the heat even though they, too, were far from…
Let’s just be clear here that everyone involved in this incident is awful, with the exception of that dog. It’s not clear what predicated this messy, embarrassing, idiotic and ultimately cruel display of road rage in Montclair, NJ, but it ended with a dog being flung out of a car and possibly injured.
Sometimes, you find out some fact, and immediately you feel years and years of suspicions justified. The fact I’m thinking of involves some of my favorite things ever: air-cooled Volkswagens, dogs, and the act of chewing rubbery things. I can’t believe I never knew this delightful fact, just hiding there in plain…
It’s National Puppy Day, which means it’s an excuse to look at cute pups on the internet. Recent Daytona 24 winner Jordan Taylor’s very good dog has become a racing star in his own right: Fonzie, a big puffy Goldendoodle. Enjoy these clips of Taylor jamming out with Fonzie because these two are just the best.
An excited dog got loose and bounded into a World Cup cross-country skiing race on Sunday in Quebec City, and it was exactly as cute as you’d think.
Right in the middle of a dang bike race!
There’s not much I can give in the way of context for this video. The excited announcer is commentating in Italian, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the race was in Italy. There are no races worth filming happening in Italy right now, and also it’s winter, so this grainy footage is probably old.
Mark is a big guy who now has a really big dog. He needs something more comfortable than his Ford Fusion Hybrid but wants to get decent fuel economy because he drives so much. What car should he buy?
Most situations can be made better by the presence of a dog. Top Gear evidently thought so, too, when they brought a dog—christened Top Gear Dog—onto the show nearly 10 years ago. She seemed like a sweet thing, and unfortunately, she has just passed away at the age of 11.
Dogs. Cute! Not all that smart. I know, except for your dog, which is smarter than my honor student, according to your bumper sticker. You still might want to hang on to Fido while you’re driving with the windows are down.
Ruger the black lab must have good instincts. Or maybe he’s seen some Disney movies. Lost on a cold winter night, he hopped into an open police car and curled up on the passenger seat all cute-like. When the officer discovered the dog riding shotgun, the dog got a free lift home.
Between shedding fur on your seats and a seemingly physiological need to jump into the front seat while you’re passing an 18-wheeler on the freeway, it’s no secret that a lot of dogs don’t do particularly well in the car. So, if you’re planning on taking your dog to your parents’ house for the holidays, this hammock…
They might look cuddly, but polar bears are vicious predators, and when hungry, aren’t particularly choosy about what they hunt. But this polar bear, up in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, wasn’t looking for a meal when it nuzzled up to this sled dog. It just wanted to pet its soft, fluffy fur.
