Stuck indoors this weekend, or just looking for some quick and easy reads? Catch up on the latest animal news, pet advice and fun dog facts with these great stories from around the web.

ICYMI, news broke just before the holidays that Ikea launched a new Pet Furniture Collection, and we want it ALL! The collection is currently being rolled out in stores across the US, Canada, France and Japan.

Dogs can’t speak human. Here’s the tech that could change that. Scientists are finally working on something we’ve always dreamed about but could never imagine becoming a reality — the ability to have a chat with our fur kids. Yes it’s true, scientists are working on a pet translator, and it could mean that you might finally be able to actually understand what your dog is trying to say.

If your dog could talk, they would tell you that Starbucks has a Puppuccino for dogs (this is one of Daisy’s favorite things), but did you know that some of your other favorite spots offer yummy, unpublicized treats just for four-legged patrons? Check out these Restaurants with Secret Menus for Dogs compiled by Modern Dog Magazine, and an even bigger list of businesses that cater to pets put together by our friends over at BarkPost.

Recent weather has been pretty crazy. Many pet owners are aware of the dangers to dogs and cats in extreme heat, but the risks can be even greater during a cold spell. The folks over at NPR ask pet experts How Cold Is Too Cold For Pets? According to Daisy, anything below 50 degrees fahrenheit is too cold for a Florida dog like her!

Weird animal question of the week: Why Dogs Pee in Their Bowls and and other odd pet behaviors explained by the animal experts over at National Geographic.
