It’s Just an Angel Dog?

The Internet got spooked last week with this pic of a woman spreading the ashes of her beloved Golden Retriever named Wagner. If you look closely at the picture on the bottom right, you can make out the shape of a dog, right? But is it real or is it just Photoshop? Or maybe a Halloween hoax? You be the judge! (DogTime)

Miley Cyrus Drops Free #DogLovers Album! #MCandHerDeadPetz

1396802271_miley-cyrus-dog_2Fresh off the VMAs, Miley Cyrus surprised her fans this week by dropping a new FREE album called Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz — which was inspired, I assume, by the loss of her pet dog, Floyd, last year. You can listen to the full album HERE!

After a quick preview, I found “The Floyd Song (Sunrise)”, “Karen Don’t Be Sad”, and “I Get So Scared” to be particularly heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. So twerk that! (photo: US Mag)

However, if you want to just stick with the old school “Wrecking Ball” Miley, then check out the new Seth Rogen trailer for The Night Before, which celebrates Christmas –– and her classic hit as well!

A Son Moves Out and Gets Replaced By Family Dog?

I caught this pic on BuzzFeed a couple weeks ago — and it still cracks me up (It was #16 on a post titled “23 Parents Who Are Funnier Than Their Kids”). Apparently, a young man recently moved out of his parents house, but Mom and Dad didn’t waste too much time replacing his pic on the family’s wall of fame…(originally posted on Reddit)
