The 10 Most Dangerous Dogs


By web gangsta | Published:

Dogs are man’s best friend.  At least, until someone gets bitten.  Then the offending dog is nobody’s friend.

We have friends with all sorts of dogs, running the gamut from lap dogs to big ol’ greyhounds.  Even a Great Dane has been in the mix.  A litter of pitbulls. No poodles, though.  Not that we know of, at least.

But we’ve only seen one dog attack amongst all the dogs we’ve been familiar with.  And in hindsight, maybe there’s a reason for it.

OMG! It’s the KITTEN BOWL!


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s what some media analysts are already calling the SUPER BOWL SHOWDOWN OF THE CENTURY, and the NFL has absolutely nothing to do with this one.

It’s all about creating the most entertaining alternative programming during the annual Football Championship Game, and there’s a new challenger in place this time that is making a lot of noise.

What’s the best dog food?


By web gangsta | Published:

If you have a dog, then chances are you know how easy it is to find food that your dog will like.

Basically — is it food?  Let’s eat!

Very rarely are you going to run into a dog that doesn’t like anything you put in a bowl in front of them, or drop on the floor, or leave available on the counter.  Dogs will eat pretty much anything you give them.

Dogs like tails that wag the right way


By web gangsta | Published:

Dogs are very expressive animals.  You can tell when they’re happy, you can tell when they’re sad. You can tell when they know that they’ve done something wrong.

There’s a reason that dog’s are called Man’s Best Friend, in part because there is that charade of communication that pet owners have with their dog that goes beyond a mere belly rub.

The problem with fake service dogs


By web gangsta | Published:

The other day, Web Watch was in a grocery store where we saw a woman with her chihuahua on a leash walking through the produce section.  The dog was wearing a “service dog vest”, indicating that this dog was specifically trained to assist the disabled in some manner.

And we’ve been seeing more and more of this.  Service dogs appear to be everywhere nowadays.  Have you seen this trend also?

Dogs are welcoming our robot overlords


By web gangsta | Published:

Remember when Web Watch told you about how dogs prefer to eat human food?  Or, at the very least, they prefer to eat food that their human shows them is good to eat?

It ends up that dogs really are more aware of the people around them than we give them credit for. Perhaps the “man’s best friend” term really isn’t just a phrase, but something true and real.

Why you shouldn’t keep your pet in your car


By web gangsta | Published:

Do you drive your dog around each weekend?

Is your dog the kind that travels with its head out the window, sniffing as the world goes by?  Or is your dog a bit more casual – sitting comfortably in the passenger seat and napping?

Or are you the kind of driver who insists on driving with your dog sitting in your lap (and possibly getting in the way of the airbag, should it be needed in an emergency situation)?

Bella and Kitty lead the list of Top Pet Names for 2012


By web gangsta | Published:

Naming your new puppy or kitten is a pseudo-exact science.

Some people let their kids name the pets, as that’s a way to encourage ownership with the kids and hopefully force them to remember to feed or clean up after their new furry companion.  (Ha! Likely not to happen, but it’s worth a shot – right, parents?)

Others base the names they select off the pet’s coloring (black cats would be “Smokey” or “Shadow”. Spotted dogs would be, well, “Spot”)

And others may decide to name their pets after their own favorite hobbies.  Which may explain why there are so many pets named after either spices or alcohol.

How do you play with your dog?


By web gangsta | Published:

You own a dog.  But your dog gets bored, and decided to chew up your furniture.

Hey, it happens.

Dogs need seemingly constant attention and distractions to keep them occupied and entertained.  While cats could care less about the humans they keep around to help get them tuna every once in a while, a dog craves interaction with their owner.

Why every office should be filled with kittens and puppies


By web gangsta | Published:

Are you watching the current BRAVO TV program LOLWORK?

It’s a reality TV program that allegedly shows the real-world behind-the-scenes workings of how the Cheezburger Network — home toLOL CATSand millions of other funny animal pictures and videos — does business.

While most the show appears to be purposefully driven to make what is supposed to be good TV, there are specific business-aspects that get aired that really for-real give a reasonable peek behind the curtain of what it takes to run a popular content-driven website.

Watching LOLWORK will give you a good reminder that it’s always hard work to create good, compelling CONTENT for your website, but that it’s that same content that also brings eyeballs to your site in the first place.  Focus on the content, let everything else fall into place later.

Feeling lonely, men? Guess what – women prefer to sleep with their pets


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows a lot of women who love their pets. A lot.

We know that they dote on their pets to such a great extent, that the pets are truly part of the family – even to the extent that these women would rather spend time with their pets than go on a date.

To them, their pets will always come first.

Do You Know Who Dogs the Dog Poo?


By web gangsta | Published:

Let’s face it – picking up a bit of dog poop isn’t exactly the least humiliating thing one can do in public.

It has gotten to the point of public decency that if you’re walking your dog around town, you’re also pretty much carrying a plastic bag of poop with you.

“Hello, Fred – how’s it going?”

“Okay, Sam.  Say, would love to stay and chat with you – but I’m kinda carrying around a bag of my dog’s excrement right here, and if you wouldn’t mind…”

“Oh, certainly!  Go right ahead, I didn’t mean to stop you on your poop transport.”

But sadly, this isn’t always the case, is it?
