Comments are off for this post.
The love and loyalty between a pet and its owner is like no other, and thankfully, Judge Judy knows it. On a super emotional episode of Judge Judy a dog owner fought to get his lost dog back from a woman who claimed that she bought the dog legally from someone on the street, implying the dog is rightfully hers. After Judge Judy ordered the dog to be brought into the courtroom and placed on the floor, it became obvious who the dog's real owner was. The tearful reunion between the pup and the man was all Judge Judy needed [...]

Image: kent nishimura/The Washington Post/Getty Images President Trump, a man who heroically escaped military service by claiming he had a boo-boo on his footsy, appears to have randomly decided this morning to remove transgender soldiers from the United States military. It's unclear what the actual policy implications of Trump's tweetstorm will be, seeing as how it takes more than a few steps for a tweet to become policy. The American public and trans members of the military (who are preparing for the worst) were largely caught off guard. Even the Department of Defense who, you know, is supposed to be [...]

An animal shelter turned a case of a chewed-up stuffed animal into an Instagram ‘Law and Order’

Comments are off for this post.
Like a pet version of Law and Order, an animal shelter in Wisconsin is trying to settle a case involving a suspicious doggo and his stuffed animal companion. Hank the dog at the Fox Valley Humane Association has a best friend. And that best friend happens to be a stuffed animal named Fuzzy Purple Hippo, pictured together below.

The hippo won't let us get [...]

Yo, shit's bright up there. Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock File this under: things you definitely should NOT do.

Shit."

No-show socks are terrible and I’ll never stop wearing them

Image: Amazon No-show socks are my sworn enemy. I hate them: the way they instantly slip off my heel the second I step outside my apartment, the way they pool around in my sneakers, and the way they still somehow peek over the sides of my loafers, rendering their name a lie. But I will never stop wearing them. Why? When they work, they look ... so cool. SEE ALSO: Reawaken your childhood by wearing these stylin' Lisa Frank pajamas Somehow, I have completely succumbed to the notion that shoes look better when you cannot see the socks underneath.
