Tree of the Day: People Are Making Christmas Trees for Their Dogs and It’s Perfect

Bark! The Howl Angels Sing?

Every year, little girls and boys get dogs for Christmas, but what about the dogs? What do they get for Christmas? Do they get little girls and boys? Without a Christmas tree, how does Santa know where to put the presents?

Well, the dog days of your “best friend” quietly resenting you are over because Twitter is giving the tree back to the dogs. For some reason, no one ever thought to put dogs next to small Christmas trees, but thanks to the power of social media and digital communication, we have rectified a grave injustice.

Twitter has been blowing up for the past few hours as people show off their dog Christmas trees, and they are just perfect. Sorry to unwrap your present early, but here’s a bunch of dogs with their Christmas trees.

Nightmare of the Day: This Mom Dressed Up Like Her Dog and Now None of Us Are Sleeping Tonight

Sure, parents are annoying — what with the “pick up your room,” “what are you doing with your life,” and “no, you cannot turn the garage into something called the ‘Chill Zone.’”

But sometimes, they’re just really scary — like when they threaten to throw away your velvet painting of Hendrix wailing on his axe because you won’t just “move out already.”

Meet Zoë Baumann, for instance. According to her Twitter, her mother dressed up like her dog. While this might be just a way to get her to “clean the pot after making mac and cheese at 4am,” or, simply, this is a Halloween costume, Zoë, nevertheless, brought her personal punishment to Twitter, who had a field day with this.

Check out some of the best responses to Zoë's mom dressed as her dog.

Gift of the Day: Dog Owners, Rejoice! The Hands Free Pooper Scooper is Here

There’s a lot of upsides to owning a dog: Unconditional love and support, constant cuddling, a catch partner. But there’s one big downside, and then you have to pick up that downside.

Which brings us to this, the best holiday gift, maybe, ever devised. Yeah, that’s right, get lost, Tickle Me Elmo.

The Piqapoo clip attaches to a small, disposable bag to your dog’s tail. Then, when your dog needs to go, they can make it happen directly into the bag. No bending, no dirty sidewalks, just one sad dog with a bag attached to its tail.

Needless to say, Twitter is lining up to get one. Check out what people are saying:

Move over, “Man,” because dogs have found a new best friend, and it’s polar bears.

Yup, in spite of everything happening to polar bears right now, such as losing their homes and attempting to jump from one melting ice sheet to the next, this polar bear took time out of its busy schedule to comfort a dog.

via GIPHY

Putting aside their differences for even just a few moments, this polar bear and dog, who we will now refer to as “The Power Friends,” sat and enjoyed each other’s company in Northern Manitoba, Canada last weekend. Local hero David De Meulles caught the whole exchange on his phone.

"I had no idea what was going to happen, and then sure enough he started petting that dog, acted like he was a friend," David De Meulles said. "I just so happen to catch a video of a lifetime."

"It was a beautiful sight to see, and I just can't believe an animal that big would show that kind of heart toward another animal."

via GIPHY

There’s a lot we can take away from this monstrous beast repressing instinctual its urge to kill long enough to take in the natural beauty and splendor of another living creature. Even if it’s unable to put together rational thoughts or express its feelings orally, on some level this polar bear thought, “I fear not this small creature but understand it has wants and desires like me.” So to the dog must think, “This is my friend, and I want to play with my friend.”

And play they did.

Run free, “Power Friends.” Run free and may we all learn from your connection

Trick of the Day: Stay! Dogs Reclaim the Mannequin Challenge

After years of doing tricks, like "Stay" and "Play Dead" for free, dogs are finally cashing in on one of those old tricks.

Joining the Mannequin Challenge a little late, but still totally welcomed, dogs have been crushing the challenge for the past day or so. Sure, you could say their owners are the real winners for finally turning their cameras on their dogs for a change, but they're just so cute not to give it to them. I mean, who's a good boy? You are. Yes, you are. Yes, you are.

Your move, cats. Or don't move, cats. Stay there... and record.
