In the continuing series “Beagle Versus,” Maymo bravely takes on a Robot Crab. When I say “versus” it basically involved the robot crab shooting its legs up and down while Maymo flips out, running close enough to put up a fight but far enough to run away. Previously, he’s taken on an orange and pretty much anything he can drag with his mouth. [crackrockcandy]
Today has been a day full of hidden canine talents. This morning we saw a bunch of cute dogs who could play dead on demand. Now, this adorable golden retriever is showing the world how he can fit three tennis balls in his mouth at the same time. You’re probably thinking, “when would he EVER need this talent?” But trust me, in a dog’s world this is the equivalent of have a natural aptitude for calculus or some athletic advantage over your uncoordinated peers.

Pugs rarely do anything exceptionally graceful — I don’t know if it’s their distinct waddle, bulging eyes or scrunched up faces that make them slightly less elegant than other canine breeds (and inevitably more cute). This black pug is the exception to the rule. He bounces up the stairs with such coordination and vigour, you almost feel proud of the little guy who could.
Whenever my dog Kokomo does something wrong, we can immediately tell. For example, if my dog made a mistake on the carpet, he won’t make eye contact with us and will usually dog sit in a corner and look at the floor. The dogs in this top 10 countdown are no different.
There are always telltale signs that’ll tip you off if a dog did something (please note these are NOT SCIENTIFIC/REAL signs, loyal readers).
1. Won’t make eye contact
2. The other dogs blame him
3. Twitching mouth

I was pretty proud when we taught my dog how to roll over but we never mastered the head nod. All this little dog wants is a treat but his owner trained him to nod when he wants one. So when she asks “Do you want a treat?” he answers with the gesture. I don’t know if he really knows what it means — in the end he just wants the treat — but it’s ADORBZ.
Power comes in numbers. These puppies felt confident approaching this innocent little kitten because they were in a big group — if anything went awry they could have protected each other. But one puppy didn’t notice it when his pals lost interest and ran away. Upon hearing the kitty softly meow and realizing he was alone, he ran away crying. And he doesn’t stop running until he’s well away from the cat and protected underneath a car.
Don’t worry. He forgot the incident two minutes later and moved on to happy puppy things, like sitting in baskets and burying bones in unconcealed locations.
This Puggle is peeved off at the vacuum cleaner and is NOT backing down. His offensive strategy is to
bark squack loudly. “To be fair,” his owner writes on YouTube, “the vacuum cleaner ate the last pudding cup out of the mini-fridge.
This argyle-wearing dog keeps sticking out his tongue hoping his owner will give him a glass of water. What he reveals is that he probably has the world’s longest tongue, though this is yet to be confirmed by Guinness World Records. The dog actually has a bit of peanut butter on his nose that he just can’t get off. Poor guy!
Yesterday, we saw an adorable video of an incredibly confused dog named Emma staring at a computer screen. His owner was playing a pre-recorded video of her cat, who was in the same room as the dog. You could see the wheels turning in his head but he doesn’t quite understand how the cat could be on the computer screen and also in the room.
Now we present the sequel to that video and it’s spun to a level as deep as Inception. In this video, the dog is watching a video of himself watching the video of the cat. The poor guy is just as confused as yesterday! How is he in two places at once?
