Love, love, love this paw-tastic new video from The Pet Collective! It’s a pro-pet adoption message and hilarious parody of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air…with a very special guest cameo appearance at the end.
You may or may not already be familiar with (or sick of) the Harlem Shake meme that’s been going around on YouTube recently. I think it’s pretty funny even if it’s already on its way out as many pop culture experts are predicting…
If you need to catch up, Wikipedia describes the concept:
“The videos last 30-something seconds and feature an excerpt from the song “Harlem Shake” by electronic musician Baauer. Usually, a video begins with one person (often helmeted or masked) dancing to the song alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by other people not paying attention or unaware of the dancing individual. When the bass drops, the video switches to the entire crowd doing a crazy convulsive dance for the next 15 seconds. The dancing style should not be confused with the original Harlem Shake dance. Moreover, in the second half of the video, people often wear crazy outfits or costumes while wielding strange props.”
It’s not just humans that have gotten in on the act…here are some of my favorite Harlem Shake Videos featuring hilarious and cute animals:
Harlem Shake: Animal Office Edition from The Pet Collective
Harlem Shake (Puppy Edition)
SeaWorld Harlem Shake: Sea Lions and Walrus!
Harlem Shake Rambo The Cat Edition
I’m having a hard time choose a favorite…leave us a comment and let us know which ones made you laugh!
Are you ready for extra cuteness and fun tomorrow? We’ve been looking forward to The Puppy Bowl for months now! There’s the Puppy Cam, the Kitty Half Time Show and we hear there will be Hedgehog Cheerleaders this year, too! If you follow us on Pinterest, you already know we have a thing for hedgehogs! Cute, right???
Well, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the Subaru Dogs are back with EXTRA fun and cuteness! Longtime fans of Puppy Bowl already know how much fun it is interacting with other fellow fanatics on Facebook and Twitter…it’s not just a show, it’s an experience! Subaru is taking that to the next level with their super cool new interactive Puppy Bowl Plus app.
Subaru’s New Interactive Puppy Bowl App
The app is totally free and you can download it now from iTunes here to be prepared ahead of time. Then, when you watch the Puppy Bowl live on TV, Sunday Feb. 3 at 3pm ET on Animal Planet, the app will serve up exclusive content for users to interact and engage with. It actually works live with the TV broadcast (and the re-airing, so check local listings) in a similar way to apps like Shazam and Viggle and we can’t wait to check it out!
Dog tested. Dog approved.
In addition to the new interactive app, be sure to also watch for the Subaru Dogs to make appearances in some brand new commercials airing during Puppy Bowl IX this year! We’ve already checked out a few sneak peeks and want to share our favorite with you. It features the Subaru Dogs in their paw-tastic new ride, packed and ready for a very special tailgate party. You can watch it here!
We hope you’re looking forward to Puppy Bowl IX as much as we are! Join us as we cheer on our favorite puppies, check out the new hedgehog cheerleaders and watch for appearances by the Subaru Dogs in their new TV spots and on the app! Hashtags to watch on Twitter are #SubaruBP and #PuppyBowl so hopefully we’ll connect with you there, too!

Did you catch the very special episode of Sesame Street today??? They introduced a new character and he’s a Service Dog named Brandeis! If you missed it, here’s a video clip of the Sesame Street Song, “I want to be a service dog” from the episode which will re-air November 12 and November 30.
Also making an appearance in this episode is a real-life service dog and super star from Canine Companions named Hercules!

A while back Daisy and I told you about Pets Add Life (PAL), a public service initiative to help spread the word about the benefits and joys of pet adoption. Well, even if you aren’t quite ready to adopt this week or month, or already have a full-house of fur kids, there are other ways you CAN make a difference and help homeless pets in need:
Hop on over to Facebook (it will only take a sec, I promise) and Take the Pets Add Life Pet Pledge. Promise to share a photo of a homeless pet with your social network on Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter. So easy! You probably share cute animal photos anyway…don’t we all?!? Or, if you have a bit more time, pledge to volunteer at a shelter. Just these simple steps can make a big difference in the lives of animals in need of a forever family!
And speaking of sharing, have you checked out the Pets Add Life (PAL) videos on YouTube? Each one is a cute and funny “interview” with a talking animal, designed to help share the message and raise awareness for pet adoption. If your pet is an only child, they will definitely get you thinking about how much they would probably LOVE a new brother or sister! Be sure to have a watch and share them with your PALS…everyone loves a funny talking animal video!
