This season of Homeland has been an intense one, featuring multiple cover-ups, dangerous alliances and the real threat of death looming around every corner.
But if you're one of the fans who gave up on the show this year due to its seemingly implausible plot points, let these canines re-inspire you. Bark Box's "Boneland" parody combines all of the show's best moments – Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul's (Mandy Patinkin) partnership at the CIA, her on-and-off relationship with Brody (Damien Lewis) – with, you guessed it, puppies.
We're a week past Thanksgiving, so chances are by now, you've probably picked out your Christmas tree. Maybe even decorated it. But if you haven't, here's a festive new way to mark the occasion, complements of dog Scout.
See, Scout is no ordinary dog. Scout loves to balance things on his head, as seen on his Mom Jen Gillen's Instagram account or on his website, Stuff on Scout's Head.
The pit bull has had everything from a stack of DVDs to a wheel of brie placed atop his noggin, but we think this cluster of Christmas lights might be his best topper yet.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet Dreamer, a 1-year-old pit bull terrier mix whose wish came true in April when she was transferred from an overcrowded shelter to the Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island.
Over the past few months, Dreamer has been out to prove just how dreamy she is. The outgoing, people- and dog-friendly pooch has an unmistakable "goofy nature [that] is sure to bring a smile to your face," reads her bio.
We've all been there: Christmastime makes everything more intense and everything is just emotional and then someone's in your way and ...
Okay, we're not going to accuse junior first dog Sunny Obama of going all Grinch on a 2-year-old at Wednesday's White House holiday celebration. We would never imply that little Ashtyn Gardner was anything but lovely before she took the tumble to top all tumbles – the fall to dethrone Jennifer Lawrence as the Queen of Highly Public Falls. She definitely did not – just speculating – poke fun at his dark chocolate replica featured in the annual gingerbread display. She would never.
Either way, what went down at the decor unveiling could totally sabotage Sunny's approval rating. As the children of military families gathered for a day of crafts and festive fun, Gardner's well-intentioned run-in with Sunny turned into the stuff Michelle Obama's nightmares are made of.
To be fair, Sunny only startled the tot, who then stepped back and tripped over a walker (watch below). Still, we know you're new here Sunny. We know it's your first Christmas in the White House. But you're doing it wrong.
Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, R. Kelly and Lady Gaga – sometimes a ditty just sounds better when it's performed by a duo.
Such is the case with Ukranian street busker Sergei Ivanovich, who plays the clarinet for passersby in Dnipropetrovsk's European Square. When he added an adorable stray pooch to his sidewalk act, people took notice, whipping out their camera phones to capture the scene (which has already received more than 200,000 views on YouTube).
A New Jersey canine who was crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007 and later became the topic of a children's book preaching acceptance has died. Elwood was 8.
His owner, Karen Quigley, says the Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix died unexpectedly Thanksgiving morning. The Sewell resident said Elwood had been dealing with some heath issues in recent months but appeared to be doing well.
Elwood was dark colored and hairless – save for a puff of white fur resembling a mohawk on his head. He was often referred to by fans as Yoda or E.T. because of his resemblance to those famous science-fiction characters.
For a pet on Instagram, it can be hard to stand out. After all, you're competing against Theo, a newborn bulldog who captured everyone's heart in May. A month later, Biddy the jet-setting hedgehog rose to prominence. Then there's Princess Monster Truck, a cat for whom both cute and creepy are accurate adjectives.
But the latest furballs to attain fame on the photo-sharing site may just be our favorites. Meet Harlow and Indiana (Indi for short), a pair of pups whose "tail" of friendship is more than meets the eye.
Harlow first gained attention as one half of Harlow and Sage, an adorable doggy duo known for doing everything together, from napping to dressing alike. But in September, Sage passed away at age 13.
In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we'll be introducing you to an adult furball looking for a place to live out its golden years throughout November. Today, we'd like you to meet Shilo, an easy-going dog who just wants a lap to snuggle in.
He may be 9-years-old, but Shilo has a lot of good years ahead of him. Everyone loves spending time with this terrier mix – from adults to children to other dogs and cats. His positive spirit is infectious, according to the Adopt Me Rescue of Studio City, Calif., who is currently trying to find him a happy home.
It's official: Jewel is a certified gem!
Gch. Kiarry's Pandora's Box, a 3-year-old American foxhound also called Jewel, nabbed the Best in Show title at this year's National Dog Show, which aired Thanksgiving Day on NBC. It's the first time in the 12-year history of the show that the winner has come from the hound group. Last year's winner, Sky, was a wire fox terrier.
Jewel beat out a slew of other pretty pooches for the top prize, including a bearded collie, a Pekingese, a Norfolk terrier, a standard schnauzer, a bichon frise and an Irish water spaniel.
