Leave a comment

If yoga is about controlling the mind and body, there is no greater test than practicing with a dog or cat on the loose.  As Danielle Cuccio, a yoga instructor and owner of two pugs tells us, “They think it’s playtime or that it’s some kind of game. They think, ‘Mommy is on our level … Lets get her!’ They actually challenge me to stay balanced in a pose so I think it makes me stronger.”  Watch our compilation above and see why every yogi should own a pet for the ultimate yoga challenge.

Charlie really found himself in the dog house when he stole baby Laura’s toys.  The upset tot burst into tears after the playful pooch pinched her favorite furry mobile.  But the cheeky canine soon won back her trust by bringing her a selection of new playthings.  And the entire adorable incident was all caught on camera.  The cute footage shows the bashful beagle walking off with one of the infant’s possessions.

Pigs may not fly yet, but it seems dogs have conquered the skies.  Whisper has earned the distinction of the world’s first BASE jumping dog. Rock climber Dean Potter strapped his pooch onto his back while before jumping from a 13,000-foot mountain peak called The Eiger in Switzerland. Potter captured his pup’s less-than-enthusiastic reaction with a GoPro.

From Cheerios to Hormel, even the most time-tested American brands have been bulking up their offerings with protein in response to carb-avoidant consumers—and it looks like science backs up the weight-loss trend that has fed a profitable grocery store frenzy in recent years.

Video: Pride of Lions Play With Toy Car

Leave a comment


File this one under up close and personal. While recently on assignment in Botswana, wildlife photographer Chris McLennan mounted a camera onto a remote control car and drove it into a pride of wild lions.  Not much happens at first, with the four-wheeled intruder only piquing the interest of two inquiring lionesses. But as the car inches nearer the napping pride, each big cat quickly perks up and strides over to it. The result is a succession of gorgeous close-ups: stoic faces, piercing yellow eyes, terrifying canine teeth, and prodding paws.
