The 142nd annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show goes down today and tomorrow in New York City. In lieu of a preview, Deadspin arranged an exclusive sit-down with a 5-year-old black Labrador retriever named Zeal—one of the favorites in the obedience competition—and his owner, Petra Ford.
Oh, what’s that? Your dog can sled? That’s real cute. Now get the fuck out of here, because this one can also act as its own ski lift.
Practicing stickhandling can be a dull, repetitive exercise for any hockey player. But Columbus Blue Jackets winger Artemi Panarin, who’s already extremely good with the puck, has found a way to make it the highlight of anyone’s day.
The unquestioned best highlight from this weekend’s Argentine Primera División action was this little dog. He really wanted to take a corner kick, but nobody would let him, despite the great ball control he displayed.
SAN FRANCISCO—Alabama Street runs north through the heart of the Mission, from Bernal Heights Park, past the city’s best burrito spot on 24th, all the way up to 16th Street, when its name changes, for one block, and it becomes Rescue Row. The bulk of the city’s animal outreach and rescue organizations are located on…
This dog may not have caught the frisbee, but he achieved flight.
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. I’m sure it was a good time for everyone, except maybe the Braves, who lost by 15 runs, but at least they got to hang out next to a…
Attention, attention, we have incoming sports news. This dog has just been elected mayor of San Francisco.
What’s a cool thing to do in Turkey if you’re a dog? Check out some classical music, duh.
The Frisco RoughRiders, the Double A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, have a team dog named Brooks. The team recently tried to teach Brooks to be a bat dog, and things didn’t go so well:
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…
Chicago’s South Side team hosted the Minnesota Twins tonight, as well as many baseball-loving dogs from the Chicago area. What better way to start a week of games against a division rival than Dog Day?
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.
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,…
Astros shortstop Carlos Correa has an unbearably cute puppy; this is not a drill. Groot looks like some kind of husky, and he enjoys chasing soft grounders.
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:
The Brazil Open brought rescue dogs on court to retrieve tennis balls, in an effort to promote local animal shelters in Sao Paulo. Just like last year, the practice—like the dogs—was very good. This year’s crop of pups: Cindy, Nanda, Pretinha, Mia, Arlete and Ovelha. I couldn’t tell you which one of them was caught…
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.
I went to the set of this year’s annual Puppy Bowl, and I made sure to bring a camera. The more I type, the more you’ll have to scroll past to see the baby animals, so I’ll cut that shit out.
