googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); My dogs aren’t the smartest critters in the world, but they will do just about anything to get treats. I keep their various cookies, bones, and rawhides in a kitchen cabinet. Whenever that door creaks open, they come running. Before I can say “sit” or “shake,” they’re on their bottoms with a paw in the air, ready to chomp down on one of their favorite snacks.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Hero is normally a very quiet dog, so when he started whining incessantly one day, his owner knew something was very wrong. Four-year-old Sadie has type one diabetes and Down syndrome, which makes it quite difficult for her parents to monitor the little girl’s blood sugar levels. That’s where Hero comes in. The service dog has been specially trained to detect decreases in blood sugar. While many dogs have been trained to help diabetics in the same way, what Hero did one day is almost beyond comprehension. Little Sadie was at school five miles away from [More]
Costa, a homeless Brazilian man, ended up in the hospital after being attacked by some street thugs. While his injuries were being treated, doctors discovered he had melanoma. This meant he’d have to stay for a couple of weeks in the hospital while receiving treatment, which was a huge problem for Costa because he didn’t live on the streets by himself. He lived with Seco, his loving dog. As he underwent skin cancer treatment, his best friend waited outside in the parking lot for days on end. Since hospital rules do not permit animals to enter, hospital staff provided food [More]
Our pets are so wise when it comes to matters of treats, belly rubs, and trips to the park. But ask them to explain complex matters like memory foam or lemons and you’ll probably be met with baffled silence. Take it from these confused pets…what you’re showing them is surely sorcery. 1. “Wait…what in the?” View post on imgur.com 2. He’s so confused as to why these treats don’t taste like they normally do… View post on imgur.com 3. Lemons ARE terrifying. View post on imgur.com 4.

The population of homeless people in America is not shrinking, and it’s something most of us try to ignore. We turn a blind eye when we walk down the street and push it out of our minds so we don’t have to feel guilty or weird or unsettled by their unfortunate circumstance. But for many of the homeless fighting stay alive each day, they’re able to find hope through the unwavering love of their companions: dogs. Unlike us, these animals don’t care that their owners have fallen on such hard times. Many of their owners sacrifice having their own meals in [More]
The Christmas season is coming to an end, and as we enter January, the winter blues might come knocking. So what’s the cure? Well, how about a bunch of husky puppies playing in snow for the very first time? It certainly did the trick for me! Watching those babies have such a wonderful time frolicking in the snow on a beautiful winter day warmed my heart. Too adorable! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/husky-puppies-snow/
We’ve seen plenty of piano-playing dogs before, but most of the time they aren’t exactly musically talented. In the video below, however, we get to see a duo of fluff balls tickling the ivories…and boy are they good. Every time their owner plays a note, the dogs hit the exact same note. This is no small feat — most people have to study for years to master this skill. We all knew dogs had incredible hearing, but this is something else! I’d love to have these two play me a song with their pitch-perfect piano skills. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/pitch-perfect-dogs/
The Ringstaff family motto is simple. As they say, “We can’t save the world, but we can do something about the one in front of us,” so when the caring crew saw a large dog lying by the side of the road, they immediately turned around to help. They thought that the dog had been hit by a car, but he was actually fine. He was, however, lying next to another dog that had sadly been killed. Based on his body language, they determined that this brave guy was grieving the loss of his friend. The family couldn’t get the [More]
Julia Heckathorn writes children’s books that teach kids about conservation and preservation of endangered animals. She started writing them a few years ago after adopting a baby kangaroo. But that wasn’t the only odd animal that Julia and her husband took in; they also share their home with Noche, an anteater. I never thought I would find an anteater to be cute, but Noche completely changed my mind! (Source: HiddenCloverVideos) After watching this video, I have only one question: how do these people get away with a white carpet? Regardless, I cannot resist how cute Noche is. Look at its little face! Read more: http://viralnova.com/pet-anteater/
Shelby had been wanting a dog for a while, so her boyfriend promised that he’d get her a loving puppy friend for her birthday. When the day finally came, she waited anxiously for her dream puppy to be in her arms…little did she know she’d soon be crying with joy for two very different reasons. As she held the cute pup, her boyfriend told her to read the name tag. She was not prepared for what came next! How sweet was that? That’s one birthday I’m sure she’ll never forget!
