    A young couple in a pet store in Texas fell in love with an English Bulldog puppy. They are seen on surveillance video playing with the puppy and talking for a while with a store employee. Then they filled out a financial application to buy the puppy for $3000. OK. That isnt what made them the worlds dumbest criminals although that is pretty dumb--$3000 for a pet store puppy that almost certainly came from a...

    Someone apparently told the GoDaddy people that cute puppy ads were the way to get big bangs for their bucks. So they set about making a 30 second commercial that seems to be purposely designed to produce frightening images and negative feelings from viewers. First Buddy the pup is thrown from the bed of a pickup. Then he makes his way through more obstacles that could kill him. This sequence has all the humor of...

    A 9-week-old black Chihuahua puppy was one of five puppies born to a stray dog which had been brought in to the West Valley Humane Society in Caldwell, Idaho. Or the Canyon County Animal Shelter in Canyon County, Idaho, depending on which source you use. (I don't get it either, one story, one dog, two locations.) The rest of the puppies were normal, but Charcoal was born a hermaphrodite, that is he/she had both male...

    Eclipse, the bus-riding dog who is able to navigate her way to the dog park without her owner, is now the star of a promotional video for the county transit system. Eclipse is shown traveling to several Seattle landmarks, including the Olympic Sculpture Park, the waterfront and the library where she returns a copy of Marley & Me. There is probably no product or service that a dog can't sell.
