Bailey the Beagle knows just how to entertain the masses with her cool trick of playing dead (only until the treat comes tho). Interestingly enough, did you know that this breed is very cat-friendly? No wonder she's fun to be around.

Pup Buys A Beer

Buddy the Mutt is not just adorable, he's also wickedly smart. He is smart enough to buy beer for himself, that's for sure. Sadly, mutts are very underappreciated in this day and age, as evidenced by their high numbers in the NAIA animal shelter survey.
