Mackie the Boston Terrier Loves Being Tickled [VIDEO]

As Della Reese once said in the 1996 Martin Lawrence classic of the same name, “It’s a thin line between love and hate.” Mackie the Boston Terrier clearly has some strong feeling about being tickled, but whether “Please sir, may I have another?” or “If you touch me again, I’m going to explode” is up for interpretation.

Meet Naki’o, the First Dog With Four Prosthetic Paws [VIDEO]

Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement.

Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics.

Classy Cat Loves Perrier Water [VIDEO]
