Our Top 10 Animal Sidekicks

posted by The Daily Fluff June 28, 2018 0 comments

We all think that our pets are superheroes…they can run at lightning speed, make us happy when we’re sad, and have super senses when it comes to food! We’ve come up with a list of our top 10 favourite animal sidekicks from the big screen!

  1. Timon & Pumbaa (The Lion King)

Why have one sidekick when you can have two! Timon and Pumbaa are the ultimate sidekicks. They’re silly, wise-cracking and caring, and did we mention they sing two of the world’s greatest songs? ‘Hakuna Matata’ and ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’.

  1. Scooby-Doo

Scooby is one of the most iconic sidekicks in TV history. He’s Shaggy’s best pal and together they helped solve many mysteries…with many silly mistakes of course, and the help of a few scooby snacks along the way.

  1. Hedwig (Harry Potter)

Hedwig and Harry were the best of friends. She could manoeuvre windows and doorways to successfully deliver parcels (sorry Errol). But most notable of all, she sacrificed herself to save Harry…yep, we’re still recovering.

  1. Donkey (Shrek)

This waffle loving legend is just that…a legend. He sings, befriends almost everyone, and marries a fire breathing dragon. If that’s not the definition of a legend, we don’t know what is!

  1. Dug (Up)

He’s a talking dog! That’s not the main reason we love Dug but being able to communicate with man’s best friend is a definite pro! Dug is bubbly, loves squirrels and won’t take no for an answer – all signs of an excellent sidekick!

  1. Dory (Finding Nemo)

Anyone who can speak whale is a friend worth having if you ask us! Dory is a fun-loving, friendly, short term memory loss suffering fish – what’s not to love? She also gave us some fabulous life-long advice when she said – “just keep swimming”.

  1. Maximus (Tangled)

The noblest horse of them all. Even though he doesn’t speak, Maximus is hilarious – like funniest horse in film history funny. He has impeccable tracking skills, the nose of a sniffer dog and is as noble as noble can be.

  1. Marcel (Friends)

Oh Marcel, where do we begin? Ross adored his capuchin monkey Marcel. After authorities learnt that he was an illegal exotic animal, a chase to find and capture Marcel took place. He ended up in a zoo and then later on ended up a famous movie star monkey!

  1. Slinky (Toy Story)

This little dachshund is truly an asset to our old friends Buzz and Woody. Without Slinky’s exceptional flexibility, the Toy Story gang would be spread far and wide! Go Slinky!

  1. Garfield

Garfield, the orange, fuzzy tabby cat is all of our heroes. He hates Mondays, loves coffee and adores lasagna…can you get a more relatable sidekick?! Did you know that Garfield has been around for 40 years? Crazy right!

“Oh no!” A Collection of Stories From Embarrassed Pet Owners

posted by The Daily Fluff December 16, 2016 0 comments

Cats and dogs aren’t the most elegant of creatures, and this results in moments where pet owners stop and think, “what ARE you doing?!” For those of you with stories that you love—or hate—to share with others, don’t worry, you’re not alone! The funny, the embarrassing and the just plain gross… read the stories below that will have you cringing, laughing and pointing fingers at your own oh so similar pet.

SMELL MY BREATH – A STORY FROM BENTLEY THE NEW FOUNDLAND:

“Sometimes when I’m feeling a little cheeky, I like to find Mum or Dad and pretend I’m about to give them a big kiss and cuddle… and, as I’m face to face with them, I let out a huge burp! Yep that’s right, I can burp louder than most humans! Safe to say Mum and Dad are not impressed by it!”

CODE RED – A STORY FROM SHERMAN THE GOLDEN & DIESEL THE BLACK LAB

“I know this looks bad Mum, but it was a code red emergency. Diesel’s ball was stuck under the couch
and you were out. We had to take matters into our own paws; just consider over turning the couch and shredding its base collateral damage. At least we got the ball..”

IS THIS FOOD? – A STORY FROM BIGGIE SMALLS THE MINIATURE DASCHUND

“I really enjoy eating number twos. Sometimes I sit behind other dogs and wait – it’s like a buffet restaurant! For some reason my parents always leave the dog park with a red face!”

OOPS, THAT WASN’T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN – A STORY FROM BENTLEY THE NEW FOUNDLAND

“I’m not sure how I learnt this or where I picked up the habit from, but when I lift my leg to do number ones, sometimes number twos come out whilst my leg is cocked! Mum always laughs at me and I don’t get why!”

LET ME IN – A STORY FROM FREDDIE MERCURY THE BRITISH SHORTHAIR CAT

“There is nothing I hate more than missing out on the action. So, when the humans try to lock me in the living room every night, I’m determined to escape and wake them up by loudly meowing in their sleeping faces. Once, in an effort to keep me out of the bedroom, the humans started barricading the door with cases of wine (they drink far too much). However, they underestimated my strength, and I managed to move two cases of wine all on my own! The look on their faces was priceless… don’t mess with Freddie!” 😼

CAN’T LOOK YOU IN THE EYE AGAIN, DAD – A STORY FROM SPENCER THE CHOW

“Not long ago, Dad came home after staying at a friend’s place for the night. I ran to him and started to hump him. At this point, Dad didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!”

Creative Ways To Keep Your Pet Cool In Summer

posted by The Daily Fluff December 6, 2016 0 comments

One of the greatest challenges in summer is keeping cool. For pet owners this gets even more difficult, especially if you’re not always home! With some help from our furry contributors, we’ve come up with a few ideas to keep your pets cool over the warmer months.

Go for walks early or late:

Although this isn’t a way to keep cool, it’s a great way for your pooch to get exercise without packing on the extra heat! For an extra treat you could even have a pool set up when you get back!

Pooches Ollie and Oscar add:

This summer our plan to stay cool is simple, walks either early in the morning/later at night so we don’t burn our paw pads. We sometimes even have a puppy pool at home!

Ice – and lots of it!

For the cat owners, the two Birmans Lulu and Finn love the idea their mum has:

When the weather gets super hot, Mum helps cool us down by leaving a tea-towel-wrapped ice pack in our bed, and puts ice cubes in our water bowl.

This of course could translate to other pets too!

Frozen Treats:

Like humans, dogs would love to eat something frozen to help them cool down. You could give them flavoured ice blocks, add them to their water or freeze them in a “kong” toy. Ollie and Oscar love Pupsicles!

Frozen water and chicken stock in a container with treats and toys in there. Keeps us cool and busy for hours!

Hair Cut (not just for the fashion minded!)


You’d be surprised how much cooler animals are with less hair on them! For those of you with long hair, think of how much of a difference it makes on a hot day when you tie your hair up.

Every summer we get a fancy new (anaesthesia-free) haircut, to help lighten our layers when the weather starts to get warmer, say Lulu and Finn.

That’s right, even cats appreciate it in the end!

Air Conditioner Seat:

Move your dog or cat’s bed right in front of your air conditioner, or if you have a cat that loves to be on higher ground (they’re royalty, am I right?) move a high stool to a place right where the air hits. This idea might not be loved by all, as some might be too scared of the noise or moving air!
