DogDailyHerald, Vol. 3

Finals have rolled around again, which means our cravings for scruffy dogs’ luv are at an all-time high. Unfortunately, we can’t literally give you dogs to cuddle, but we hope this installation of DogDH will tide you over until you track one down yourself. Keep the pics coming to blog@browndailyherald.com, and keep killing it in your end-of-semester shenanigans. We love you and you’re magnificent and you’re all doing great. (That’s what we imagine dogs would say if they could talk.)

John’s dog, Lach.

John Qua ’13: Both Lach and JQ “have long flowing blond locks, can devour inordinate amounts of ice cream, and prefer to be laying in people’s laps.”

Mary-Evelyn’s dog, Puppy.

The story of Puppy’s arrival in Mary-Evelyn Farrior ’14’s family is the best: “He showed up on our doorstep two years ago and has just stuck around ever since. He is the love of my life. This Halloween costume always kills me. He was also ironically stung by a bumblebee and had a severe allergic reaction on that very day. Although we lack great physical similarities, Puppy and I share an affinity for sleeping and snuggling that makes us rather alike in character.” Continue Reading


Puppy Bowl IX: The cutest event on television

130129_puppy_bowl_2a

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, which means large men from Baltimore will brawl with large men from San Francisco in the greatest place in the world New Orleans’ Superdome. Many of us will be watching for the commercials. Some will tune in to watch Beyoncé rock the halftime show, and others still will go out of their way not to watch in a show of apathy toward professional sports. A few will even watch for the game. I for one will be in denial, in full Saints regalia, doing a shot for every Hurricane Katrina reference and wishing I was at Mardi Gras.

There’s a lot of buzz this year about San Francisco’s wunderkind quarterback, Colin Kaepernick; Baltimore’s Ray Lewis, who’s so good at linebacking that he literally gets away with murder; and the fact that the head coaches of the competing teams are brothers (sup #HarBowl). But if you think that’s crazy, get this: There are eight sets of siblings in this year’s Puppy Bowl. If you couldn’t care less about football, or if you just really like dogs, this is the show for you. Today for Puppy Bowl IX, Animal Planet will be bringing together hoards of adorable rescue puppies to play on a mock football field complete with canned audience sounds, “referees,” and kittens performing at halftime. New this year is a team of hedgehog cheerleaders. REAL HEDGEHOGS!

In case it isn’t already clear to you, this is literally the best idea ever. Tune in at 3 p.m. to watch these 27 pups change the meaning of flea flicker. You can meet the full roster here, but we’ve included a few of our favorites after the jump. Continue Reading


DogDailyHerald, Vol. 2

DogDH was such a success the first go-round that the submissions have kept rolling in. Can’t have too many dogs at finals time, right? Here, for you, are even more canines for your study breaking pleasure… and keep ’em coming to blog@browndailyherald.com (or to my Brown address, if you feel like finding it in the directory).

Georgia’s dogs, Hercules and Daisy.

Georgia Tollin ’15: “A similarity? Daisy is 5 years older than Hercules, and their relationship exactly mimics that of my relationship with my younger brother: Daisy’s the diva and Hercules is the trouble-maker.” Continue Reading


DogDailyHerald: Meet our dogs

Know how excited you get when you leave class in Wilson or lunch in the Blue Room and find hoards of tail-wagging dogs waiting to cuddle up to you on the Main Green? With weather like we’ve had recently, Heavy Petting isn’t likely to pop up and brighten our day—but that doesn’t mean we can’t take relief from furry creatures as we troll the Internet study diligently this finals period. With that in mind, we present DogDailyHerald, a compilation of dogs who are known and loved by members of the Brown community. It’s said that dogs and their owners come to resemble each other, so we’ve noted what we feel we share with our canine companions. The need for dogs will continue through finals, so if you’re not pictured here, send us your picture and resemblance and we’ll feature you in the next installment.

Coy.

Ana’s dog, Didi.

Ana Colón ’14: “[Didi] is much more graceful than me, and has much better hair. But we’re both very cuddly and are huge daddy’s girls. Also, this dog is clever as f*ck. She can open f*cking doors and let herself into the house because she is the queen.” Continue Reading
