Adorable bat dog Rookie had been logging time with the Double-A Trenton Thunder until yesterday, when he got the call—he’d be moving on up to the Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre RailRiders. Wow! A chance to prove his mettle and talent and cuteness at the next level! (His father and fellow bat dog, Derby, was also…
The Oakland Athletics had a Bark at the Park event Friday afternoon. Here come the doggos!
What’s a cool thing to do in Turkey if you’re a dog? Check out some classical music, duh.
The description says this dog’s name is Ruby, and that she’s a Hungarian Vizsla, and that she’s four years old. I have an alternative theory: her name is Super Dog, and she is a Super Dog. And possibly she is four years old.
The North Carolina Diamond Heels went 47-12 and earned the second overall seed in the NCAA tournament, which starts on Friday. They’ll get to host tournament games until they are eliminated or make the College World Series and travel to Omaha. One may assume that this is because they are stocked with skilled hitters…
The Bulls were eliminated from the playoffs last night, which meant exit interviews today. These are understandably but almost invariably boring, rehashed collections of clichéd athlete-speak. Unless you bring along your delightfully relaxed giant fluffer of a dog, Muppet, as Robin Lopez did this afternoon:
If you follow the skateboarding dog scene, you’ve probably noticed that most of the world’s elite skateboarding dogs are bulldogs. World record-holding shredder Otto is an English bulldog from Peru, and he’s the same breed as Tillman, perhaps the most famous skateboarding dog of all time.
Hello. The internet says that today is National Pet Day, the day for pets. Bring forth the pets!
Those clowns at The Guardian put a video on YouTube that shows a very good beagle running onto the field during a Northern Premier League match and interrupting the action for over seven minutes. The creator of the video, perhaps believing nobody wants to watch a dog prance around a soccer field for seven minutes,…
Here we have video of a very good dog playing fetch on the Washington Capitals’ ice rink, and it’s more entertaining than any hockey game I’ve ever seen:
Fifty-seven-year-old Mitch Seavey became the oldest and fastest musher to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race when he pulled into Nome, Alaska, yesterday. It was Seavey’s third win in 13 races and his runtime of eight days, three hours, 40 minutes, and 13 seconds unseated his son, Dallas both as reigning champion and…
There’s not much I can give in the way of context for this video. The excited announcer is commentating in Italian, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the race was in Italy. There are no races worth filming happening in Italy right now, and also it’s winter, so this grainy footage is probably old.
Tonight in sports news: The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will feature three new breeds this year; the sloughi (above); the American hairless terrier (hairless); and the pumi (fluffy).
A soccer match between Pachuca and Jaguares in Liga MX was briefly and adorably interrupted by a happy-go-lucky doggie that just wanted to enjoy an open expanse of grass. What a good dog!
No offense to Al, because all that’s available to issue a draft grade on his dog is this video, but those ball-collecting skills are a major red flag.
Every year my mom watches the National Dog Show. I’m pretty sure she has two motivations for doing this: The dogs are cute, and my dad and I won’t bother her during it. This makes her the perfect kind of expert for Deadspin readers—experienced and willing to speak her mind—so I asked her to predict who will win each…
A cricket Test match between England and India was interrupted on Thursday when a very good doggie decided to take a stroll on the field.
I’m not exactly sure what this bird was planning on doing if he ever caught up to his dog buddy, but I admire his grit as well as his moxie.
