This Grumpy Cat And Smiley Dog Have The

Best, Fluffiest Friendship On The Internet

Amy Pilkington17 Jan 2021

I think most of us know that the idea of cats and dogs being mortal enemies is silly. Sure, some don’t get along, but most happily cohabitate with their humans and some even form strong bonds with each other.

That’s the case with one pair who have gained a following thanks to their strong bond and seemingly opposite personalities.

Casper is a six-year-old Samoyed dog living in New Zealand

with his humans Rinsa Li and Wei Cheng.

Though RInsa had always wanted a cat, she worried how Casper would react, so when a friend adopted a new kitty, she took the opportunity to see how he’d react.

When he was amazingly gentle with the cat, she decided to take the plunge and adopted a tiny white kitten named Romeo.

After a gradual introduction to his giant big brother, Romeo

decided he like the floofy dog and now they’re inseparable.

It probably didn’t hurt that Casper and Romeo are similar in their appearance as majestic clouds.

However, what really makes the pairing hilarious is the way Romeo’s flat, grumpy face is always juxtaposed with Casper’s giant smile.

But don’t let the grumpy face fool you: Romeo is a sweetheart.

The pair join their humans on road-trips throughout New Zealand, making their Instagram a particularly scenic example of a classic cute animal account.

Romeo is always shadowing Casper, hoping for his attention, which the dog is happy to provide.

They currently have just over 41,000 followers, but that number continues to grow.

Samoyed Dogs Are Basically A Breed Of Big,

Fluffy, Sentient Clouds

Amy Pilkington26 Jun 2020

You know what I love? Dogs and doggo lingo.

Dogs, doggos, puppers, pupperinos, floofs, and woofers. Regardless of breed, a very good dog just puts a smile on my face, because all dogs are good dogs.

However, some breeds have the distinction of being their own category within the wider lingo, and the samoyed is one such breed.

Samoyeds, you see, are clouds.

I assume that I don’t have to explain why a large white floof would be called a cloud, right?

I mean, look at that fluffy goodness!

The American Kennel Club describes their temperament as

“adaptable, friendly, gentle.”

Sounds like a sentient cloud to me!

And a big one. Samoyeds can grow to be almost two feet tall at the shoulder and weigh as much as 65 pounds.

They are energetic and very social.

If you decide to bring one into your family, plan to spend lots of time playing and walking. These clouds are no couch potatoes.

They also aren’t for people with all-black wardrobes.

Their thick white coats are perfect for the cold-climate work they were originally bred to perform.

It also means that like many double-coated breeds, samoyeds shed quite a bit year-round and you can expect a blow-out when the really shedding season begins.

Personally, I think the extra brushing and vacuuming may definitely be a worthwhile trade for constant cloud cuddles.

Oswald The Pup Has A Cute Mis-Matched

Face And A Heartwarming Story

Amy Pilkington24 Nov 2019

Finding the perfect dog for you and your family can be tough. There are so many loving, wonderful dogs out there in need of homes, but it can take a lot of trial and error to find that one pooch that was meant to be a member of your family.

It can be especially hard after the passing of another beloved dog. Finding a pupper who can fill that empty space in your family, complementing their predecessor without replacing them, and bringing comfort during the grieving process, can seem impossible.

Sometimes, the right dog has to find you.

And Oswald, the lucky dog with the most photogenic, mis-matched little face ever, was just such a pup.

Oswald’s new human mom, Christine, had lost her “heart dog”, a bull terrier named Ichabod, and like anyone who has lost a pet, she struggled with whether or not to bring a new dog into her home.

It took her a long time to feel comfortable with the idea at all.

Once decided, she and her husband began looking for the right dog.

They focused on bull terriers, dobermans, and basset hounds, which were their favorite breeds, and spent a whole year visiting breeders, applying to adopt rescues, and responding to ads.

One after another, the opportunities fell through. Other families were chosen to adopt a particular pup or Christine would struggle to connect with a single dog at an adoption event.

It was disheartening and she was ready to give up on the idea of ever finding a dog she could love like Ichabod.

Finally, her husband decided to step in and brought Oswald home.

Christine told me:

“He said Frenchies are great with kids and that because that breed wasn’t even one we thought of we would have no preconceptions. Nothing for it to live up to. A clean slate. Someone to help us all heal. Not a dog for just him or just me or just the girls, but for us as a family. “

By no longer thinking of a new dog as a “replacement” for Ichabod, they were able to find a pupper that could fit in a whole new way.

It certainly didn’t hurt that Oswald is the cutest dog I have ever seen.

(And yes, I’m even including my own pups in that equation. Ozzie is just that cute.)

Christine describes him as being a pretty mellow puppy, but still super silly. As she explained, he’s “affectionate, a perfect gentleman who has listened to all my struggles without judgement. Assertive, diligently ‘guarding’ the house as if he were one of the tough breeds we originally looked into.”

Unsurprisingly, Ozzie gets a ton of attention whenever he’s out in public.

Even his human grandma, who openly dislikes dogs, has allowed him to cuddle with her.

“I say he’s definitely achieved his purpose of helping our family heal, learn, and then some,” Christine said.

Ozzie just turned six months old, so his magical effect on his new family is only just beginning.

And if you follow him on Instagram you can get a dose of happy from those beautiful eyes whenever you want!

Seriously, Ozzie is one of the cutest, most photogenic doggos I’ve ever seen — and it’s my job to look at cute animals all day.
