Here’s one unusual animal pairing that’ll get your heart warming in no time. Little remains known about the story’s background, but the adorable photos tell it all: a mastiff adopted a baby chimpanzee as one of its own. Cue endless baby talk.
It’s unclear whether the baby chimp’s mother passed away or abandoned the newborn, but after a zoo caretaker took the chimp home and introduced it to the mastiff and her puppies, the pair became inseparable. Read More

America sure loves its dogs. Coming from Australia, I have been both shocked and delighted at the abundance of four-legged friends in New York. The streets are a veritable feast of pugs, Boston terriers, and rescued mutts, and there seems to be a cute pooch on every corner. I may/may not be using my housemate’s dog as a way to strike up conversations in the park. (Hey, I’m a long way from home, stop judging me!)
I'm also on constant lookout for a Lena Dunham sighting, so it's pretty fitting that The New Yorker just released an article about the prolific local and her dog. Read More

It is with sadness and disbelief that I write this blog to report the sudden death of our beloved and honorary office dog, Wally, who passed away of a heart attack earlier today.
Wally was a three-legged foster dog that was adopted by our Sales Director, Emily last year. Within the past year he has spent many days in the BUST office hopping around after his mother, staring up with his big sad puppy dog eyes at anyone with food, in the hopes that he might get some scraps. And of course, there was the way he managed to get several of us here to offer up our laps as his bed. Read More

We've been keeping a secret from you: we have an illegal BUST employee. He isn't on the payroll. We do pay him with love, a place to hang out during the day, and scraps. Truth be told, though, Wally the office dog is probably our most valuable staff member. He's constantly pitching original content, posting blogs, and chatting it up with cover girls for the magazine. We thought it was time we fessed up and introduced you guys to our creative center, so we asked Wally to answer a few questions so you can get to know him better.
Thanks for agreeing to do this interview Wally. Read More

Need another reason to love dogs? Today I learned that there are dogs trained to be therapy for traumatized children. According to the New York Times , Rosie the golden retriever recently helped a 15-year-old girl testify in court that her father raped her, and had gotten her pregnant. Court rooms are terrifying enough, and with the trauma she went through it’s truly a miracle that anything could comfort her in that situation. Which is why it’s baffling to me that this dog is now under legal debate. Read More

I never knew what it was like to lose a dear pet. My family has had our share of pet fish - RIP Tokyo and Jelly - and my feeder mice, Meece Witherspoon and Meeces Pieces, both died while I was away at college. None of these losses hit me hard; I didn’t necessarily connect with the fish and my most memorable days as a mouse owner consisted of them pooping on me, then escaping and eating pencils off my desk.But while Freckles was still alive, I tried hard not to think about it.

Here at the BUST offices we spent most of our days working on the current issue of the magazine. The rest if the time however, is spent looking at cute animal videos, playing a current blog post themed game of charades and discussing things like moon cups and plush stuffed reproductive organs. (don’t ask) Today we spent some of that time giggling at the YouTube channel “Cooking with Dog”. Read More
