Twitter Users Compete Over Whose Dog Is The Cutest

Every dog owner has probably thought to themselves at some point: "my god, my dog is the cutest dog in the whole world." You're right, of course, to you, your dog is the cutest dog for real. A couple days ago, a twitter user called @verbalese decided to announce to the world that their dog is indeed the cutest dog, challenging other twitter users to come at them, and the rest... is history.

Countless people started responding to that tweet with adorable pictures of their own doggos, answering the challenge in a heartbeat, to the point that the original challenger conceded and said that they were wrong, that there are so many super sweet doggos, that the whole thread has melted their cold heart, and that they love (hate) everyone who participated. 

Honestly, the real winners of the competition are us, getting look at all these most adorable good bois. Going through this thread had us losing it over the cuteness, going like: "oh, he's the cutest- no, she's the cutest- no, he's the cutest- no, she's-"

twitter thread of users competing over whose dog is the cutest thumbnail includes a picture of a dog lying down 'Dog - Alice in Chains @verbalese I have the cutest dog on all of Twitter. Come at me bro 4:02 AM - Oct 11, 2020 · Twitter for iPhone 379 Retweets 95 Quote Tweets 10.1K Likes'

Alaska's Annual 'Fat Bear Week' Competition Begins

Oh lawd, they comin'

Katmai National Park's annual competition of voting for your favorite chubby bear is back and voting has already begun! Which chubby cubby will win the title this year? 

Every Fall, the 'Fat Bear Week' competition takes place and it's a celebration in which the online community compares photos of bears in Spring and those same bears all chubbed up and getting ready for hibernation! The difference between the photos is often very obvious. And while it's a fun competition to take part in, it's truly all about these amazing bears, their survival, and how we're learning from them. 

For those who might consider this to be body shaming, it's actually all about body positivity. A bear needs to bulk up before winter, or else it won't survive. As the U.S. Department of the Interior says, "A fat bear is a healthy bear!" Bears can lose up to a third of their entire body fat as they hibernate. 

You can vote for your favorite chubby cubby here! And follow Katmai National Park on Twitter for all the updates!

Uh, can't even. Dog's name is, 'SweePee.' The Chicago Tribune reports that judges “take into account bad appearance, including stench, poor complexion and a host of other inherited and acquired maladies.” The pup's owner, Jason Wurtz took home a sweet $15,000 for first prize in the competition; and Wurtz says he plans to use some of the winnings to remove a tumor that appeared on SweePee’s gum line.
