With Labor Day just over a week away, it's time to face the facts-- summer is coming to an end way too soon. But even though we won't be able to wipe out on Slip n' Slides too much longer, there are still tons of awesome things we can look foward to in the Fall, and apparently dogs are so ready for it.
Ugh, we've been sucked in again. Baby animals get us every single time. But can you really blame us? It's impossible to be in a bad mood when you have snuggly koalas and dime-size lizards around. And as you'll soon find out, baby seals are no exception.
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, stop. We're about to make your day a whole lot better, although we can't really take ownership over the adorableness that's about to ensue-- this one's all on the animals. Are you ready? It's puppy attack time!
It's times like these when we're really jealous of our friends Down Under, because how awesome would it be to have native koalas casually roaming around? Answer: almost as awesome as it would be not awesome to be stung by one of those insta-kill jellyfish they've got down there.
Besides being the Web's funniest downer, Grumpy Cat has also been a source of artistic inspiration ever since he claimed fame. How Tarter Sauce so effortlessly gains a huge fanbase, we have no idea, nor are we questioning. The famous kitty just has some sort of magical 'oomph' to him, which is why these Disney-meets-Grumpy-Cat pictures are so fitting.
Bowling is like a right of passage; you've gotta wear those extra smelly shoes at least once in your life. Ya know, for the semi-gross experience. Not to mention the actual game is pretty fun, too. The thing is, it's also very fail prone. But we ain't complaining!
Slow motion is fun. It makes everyday things seem way cooler, funnier or grosser, but no matter what, the result is usally hypnotizing. Seriously, we bet you'll spend no less than way too long staring at the jiggly Jello square.
In case you haven't noticed, us humans are really annoying, especially when it comes to pets. We dress 'em up in embarrassing costumes and bathe them til they hate us and honestly? We can't blame them at all for retaliation.
Etch-A-Sketches are one of those childhood toys that never go out of style. If you're like most people, a few hours' worth of entertainment usually produced some pretty bad art, although it never really mattered. But there are the select few who are really good at Etch-A-Sketching. Like, really really good.
"Lost" posters are usually pretty sad, because an adorable little puppy ran away or a kitten went missing. Ughh, it's awful. But the good news is we're not talking about that sort of stuff. In fact, we've scoped out lost notices that are really clever and don't make us think about a child crying somewhere because his parakeet, Corporal Jenkins, has gone missing.
There are some things in the art world that flat-out stump us. How the heck does a 'Star Wars' sand castle or banana art come to life? We haven't the slightest clue, but that's exactly what makes this stuff awesome. And as we've recently learned, 3D chalk art fits the same bill.
We all have those days when we're just over it. Maybe you're done with the traffic, bad weather or the fact that nothing can go right today. It happens to the best of us, and animals definitely aren't excluded.
We all know cats are quirky little creatures. For starters, they have a knack for imitating 'Shark Week' and 'The Great Gatsby Catsby'. We're not saying that stuff is weird or anything, it's just that cats always bring an element of hilarity to these sorts of situations. This also includes bath time.
If you're just now emerging from a deep slumber and have no idea what's going on in the world, here's an FYI: one of the greatest weeks of the year is upon us. (Cue the 'Jaws' theme song.) Happy Shark Week, shark fans!
There are a lot of deceptively tough stuff in this world. Diving, sticking on a price tag, even just being a cute little pup can be hard. You know what else can be super challenging? Blowing out birthday candles.
