Everyone knows that stereotypes aren’t cool, but we can’t avoid buying into them sometimes. And that’s especially true when it comes to bikers. Most of us see these rough-and-tumble ladies and gents as being scary and aggressive, but as it turns out, most biker gangs come together to help members of their communities live their best, safest lives. A group called Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA), for example, works to protect children from abuse. “We’re that single strand of barbed wire between Hell and happiness for them,” one member explained. Just look at what they did for this girl. A [More]
You might think that cows are dumb and don’t have any interests other than eating, but you’d be wrong. Mindful creatures, aware of many things around them, they can be just as curious about the world as you or I. Which is why this farmer’s cow, named Herbie, is so adorable. Given anything new on the farm, Herbie will often inspect it for hours. One time he played with a new shovel to see what it was and if it could be used as a toy. That’s when the farmer decided to give Herbie a real toy to see what [More]

What would make your morning coffee just that much better? What makes everything better, of course…dogs! Yes, our prayers have been answered! After being overshadowed by countless cat and owl cafes around the world, a new coffee shop has soft launched in Silver Lake, California, that is going to change the game for good.

The always amazing Piano Guys are back again with another chill-inducing video. This time they teamed up with none other than the tenor legend, Plácido Domingo as they put on a breathtaking performance of “Silent Night” in New York City’s Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. Joining them was a children’s choir from the Cathedral School Choristers, whose angelic singing proclaims the profound message of this famous hymn; that of serenity, spirituality, peace, and felicity. That was simply beautiful. I even think I saw tears in Plácido’s eyes! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/silent-night/
We’ve all seen the traditional agility training, usually reserved for collies or shepherds. The canine competitions are set up in big arenas with stadium seating, where spectators can politely watch from the sidelines. Shiny awards are given to the fastest, most accurate pups, and they get their picture taken with their well-groomed coats and brand-new trophies. Dogs are very athletic animals, capable of learning super-impressive tricks, but you hardly see such dexterity outside of the agility course. Unless we’re talking about TreT, an American Staffordshire terrier. He’s taken agility training to a whole new level, pushing the boundaries in urban [More]
Sammy the seal is a local legend in County Wicklow, Ireland. Every morning, he hangs out by the harbor for a bit before flopping his way across a waterfront road. This could have something to do with the fact that no matter how hard people try to protest, they always fill his belly. Needless to say, breakfast is a pretty adorable time of day for everyone in this town! Hey, you can’t blame him, right? If a restaurant gave me free food because I happened to stop by every morning, I’d probably hang around, too! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/sammy-the-seal/
It’s no secret that holidays are tough for military families. The months and years soldiers are gone drag on forever in their loved ones’ minds, especially when there are little ones involved. For the children of our country’s bravest men and women, deployment is hard to understand. What will they do when Christmas rolls around and Dad isn’t there? If Mom’s not home, who will they share their Halloween candy with? One three-year-old by the name of Bryson York knows that feeling all too well. Staff Sgt. John York is a Marine, and he’s also Bryson’s dad. The little guy [More]
This is the dramatic moment a group of people rescued a terrified deer that had been caught up in raging flood waters.

When she was just eight months old, Lakomi the wolf dog was found wandering alone and scared in the woods. Her rescuers assumed she was born and partially raised in captivity — she had a harness on that was meant for a little pup. After hours of surgery, they removed the fabric that had become embedded in her flesh. Then began the slow process of socializing her. Despite all efforts, though, Lakomi was largely anti-social. Then one day, a new caretaker came on board. After just a few months of work with her, Lakomi became a whole new wolf dog…just [More]
