English Bulldogs Have Reached A Genetic Dead End

The English Bulldog is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, but it’s also one of the unhealthiest. An upsetting new analysis now shows that these stocky, wrinkly-faced dogs lack the genetic diversity required to improve the breed, and that their current level of health is as good as it’s ever going to get.


Internet-Connected Pet Feeder Goes Offline, Pets Probably Very Hungry

Here lies Sir Meows-A-Lot, beloved pet of Sally, Ted, Nancy and Job. He was a good cat who was stolen from us too early. Maybe if we hadn’t bought an internet connected pet feeder before our holiday to the Bahamas, Sir Meows-A-Lot would still be here today. But we did, and then a network outage cut off his food supply.

Watch This Freakishly Agile Dog-Bot Do The Dishes

Boston Dynamics, better known for the hulking robot brute known as ATLAS, has just revealed a considerably smaller creation that looks like a cross between a golden retriever and a baby giraffe. But forget about it just replacing your family pet: SpotMini looks like it can replace your housecleaner too.


Michael Bay's Terrible Filmmaking Style Used For Good Cause

Michael Bay has a bad habit of seeing something — in a newspaper, on TV, whatever — and suddenly deciding that something needs to go in his next movie, regardless of whether it makes sense or not. For instance, after watching a 60 Minutes segment on wingsuits, Bay forced a lengthy scene featuring them in Transformers 3. Now he’s done it again, but with a much happier result.


Looks Like We Were Wrong About The Origin Of Dogs

The precise origin of our canine companions is mired in controversy. But a new study suggests that dogs emerged from not one but two different populations of ancient wolves. What’s more, this dual domestication happened on opposite sides of the Eurasian continent.
