Those who chose to spend their Thursday night “enjoying” the delight of a newly unretired Jay Cutler got more than they bargained for—the actual delight, however fleeting, of a squirrel prancing across the field. Behold:
What’s better than baseball or dogs? Baseball and dogs. The Rockies held a Bark at the Park event last night, wherein canines barked at their park while the Rockies beat up on the Braves.

Golfer Greg Norman wanted to share the news of his horses trying to breed, so he uploaded this video of his horses actually committing the act for the world to see. The world would have taken The Shark at his word, but the transparency is appreciated.
Minor league baseball is probably America’s greatest invention. From last night’s Fort Wayne TinCaps game, here’s Jake the Diamond Dog, a Golden Retriever whose job it is to carry a basket of bottled water out to the umpires between innings:
Martha, a 3-year-old Neapolitan Mastiff, took first prize at the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, held annually at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California. It was something of an upset—older, smaller, often hairless dogs tend to win these. But Martha reportedly impressed the judges by farting and flopping down on the ground…
Get a load of this humpback whale, sending inches of seawater and a few fish into this vessel, and me into cardiac arrest:

David toppled Goliath in the form of this antelope taking down a long-necked victim desperately trying to avoid it at a Netherlands zoo. The gritty attacker showed no mercy, even as helpless zoo visitors looked on in disbelief.
