When you admit to yourself that pugs are the best dogs ever (how can you deny those beautiful, wrinkled faces?), you’ll realize that the Internet is like pug haven. This week, AnimalPlanetTV has graced us with three baby pugs who get a bath from their mum. But one little guy named Ivan just isn’t having it.
In an attempt to run away from the wrath of his mother’s tongue (cringe), the little pug scurries away into the depths of what appears to be a blanket. The mother pug is not having that kind of sass and spots her spawn misbehaving from a mile away.

Reginald the cat is undeniably the CUTEST creature in the world and you’ll probably want to find and kidnap him after watching him get his prize-winning coat washed.
The Animal Planet clip treats bath time like it’s the most epic occasion in this poor cat’s life, breaking out heart-pounding music and slow mo action. Reggie is a long-haired Persian and maintains his luxurious locks through routine scrubs. But as the narrator says, the wash is nothing compared to drying down.

All you have to do is lightly tap your keyboard’s keys and occasionally pause and nod your head knowingly. Teachers, professors and bosses will be convinced you’re working diligently on whatever trite document you’re responsible for today. Instead, have this kitten cam open and watch it ALL DAY because it’s Friday and you deserve it.
The kitten cam is brought to us by Animal Planet to celebrate its new season of Too Cute! which airs on Oct. 13 at 8 pm. While we’re so happy it’s here, it’s also a devastating blow to our work load considering there was an adorable puppy cam this week.

Some people take things a little too seriously. After airing a creepy, fictional special about the existence of mermaids on Animal Planet, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the U.S. started getting a few calls asking whether or not mermaids are real.
The answer they came up with might surprise you: flying unicorns, Teletubbies and sharktapuses actually exist. Except not really because they’re all made up in FICTION dummy. The agency confirmed that the half-human, half-fish sea creatures are not genuine, living species in a statement: ”Mermaids – those half-human, half-fish sirens of the sea – are legendary sea creatures chronicled in maritime cultures since time immemorial… But are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found.”
They had to compile the response out of already existing information because, duh, they don’t have a department devoted to studying mythical sea creatures. We’re glad they settled it for us. I mean, Ariel is one thing but the mermaids explored in the television special Mermaids: The Body Found are damn creepy (see below)
Keep in mind this statement comes just after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a statement assuring us that zombies are not real. Suspicious. Are these agencies all trying to hide something from us?

This is one of the most enticing interviews we’ve seen Larry King do in a long time. As we all know, CNN recently severed ties with Larry King and he’s looking for a new gig. In Larry’s would-be Animal
KINGdumb KINGdom — a shoe-in program for Animal Planet — he asks animals the tough questions you want to know.
King asks a very unresponsive sloth whether he’s experienced a double standard in film and whether War Horse should have been called War Sloth. Then, he asks a tortoise when he first became sexually active.
The show looks promising, don’t you think? But really, I never realized King was so funny. If you’re teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel I suppose you’re bound to be.
Natalie Portman will join Jack Hanna for a special Animal Planet documentary on endangered gorillas.
“Saving a Species: Gorillas on the Brink” will follow the pair as they journey deep into Rwanda’s rainforest to observe some of the mere 700 gorillas still in existence.
According to the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project, mountain gorillas suffer from human-induced injuries and illness associated with poaching, war, and habitat loss.
The show will air tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.
