This Dog Knows Who He Should And Should NOT Trust...So Smart!

This Dog Knows Who He Should And Should NOT Trust…So Smart!

My dog goes on high alert whenever anyone walks by the front door. Even if it’s someone she knows and loves…she just doesn’t trust anyone until they’re inside and she’s given them a thorough once-over. It’s great for protection, but it can also be super annoying after awhile. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); This dog, on the other hand, knows exactly who to trust — and precisely who he should never trust. Just watch as his dad tells him which treat is from which person… What a smart pooch! I know my girl would walk straight up to anyone, even the dog catcher, if they had a tasty treat in their hands. She’s not trusting…unless they have food for her. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dog-treat-trust/

What This Man Found 350 Feet Deep In A Canyon Will SHOCK You. How It Ends? Even More so.

On June 20, 2010, Zak Anderegg was hiking alone in an Arizona desert. While trying to find his way through a canyon, he managed to find so much more: a stuck puppy and a heartbreaking example of just how cruel humans can be. Take a look at how Anderegg handled finding a dog at the bottom of a 350’ canyon. The entrance. Canyon Puppy The exit. Canyon Puppy The dog eating a much needed meal.

Pomeranian Puppies Happy To See Their Owner Swarm Her With Fluffy Hugs

The woman in this video had been gone for a few weeks, and when she returned home she got the single greatest welcome you could ever imagine — a swarm of dozens of extremely happy and fluffy Pomeranian puppies. This video is basically an antidepressant that’s so strong, you should need a doctor’s prescription to view it. Great. Now I have the spontaneous urge to adopt 20 tiny dogs. Somebody needs to set up a business where for $5 you can be swarmed by puppies. It looks like so much fun! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/happy-pomeranians/

Man On His Deathbed Gets A Heartfelt Goodbye From His Two Best Friends, His Horses!

Man On His Deathbed Gets A Heartfelt Goodbye From His Two Best Friends, His Horses!

With his health quickly deteriorating, Vietnam veteran Roberto Gonzalez had just one wish: to see and hug his two beloved horses, Sugar and Ringo, one last time. Hospital staff decided to grant his wish and the two horses traveled 150 miles to visit him at the Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, where he was battling liver and kidney issues. Gonzalez was paralyzed in 1970 after he was shot two months into serving in Vietnam. But despite his injury, Gonzalez made a living from his passion for the majestic animals and is one of the only registered horse trainers in Texas who is disabled. As you can tell in this heartfelt video, seeing his prized horses one last time meant everything to him. Horses never forget those who are kind to them, nor those who are cruel to them, for that matter. They’re such beautiful, sensitive […]

Man Throws A Treat To An Orangutan, Only For The Ape To Start A Game Of Catch

Orangutans are known for being among the most intelligent primates in the world. Several studies have shown that they are able to weigh the costs and benefits of gift exchanges and keep track of them over time, being the first nonhuman species known to do so. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, these clever apes call the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra home. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Russian tourist Vitaly was visiting the Bali Zoo when he had an experience of a lifetime. After walking past the orangutan enclosure, he decided to throw a few treats towards one of the orangutans sitting at the edge of a moat.

I was half expecting him to fumble it and throw the food […]

A Turkish Company Is Cleverly Using Recycling Bins To Help Stray Dogs.

Hungry Seal Flops Across The Street To His Favorite Seafood Restaurant Every Day

Hungry Seal Flops Across The Street To His Favorite Seafood Restaurant Every Day

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?

A Couple Found This Dying Baby Fox And Nursed It Back To Health.

A husband and wife discovered a baby fox stuck in a field and in dire need of help. The poor little fox was severely dehydrated, weak, and had a bloody wound to its neck. Luckily, the wife is a veterinarian, and the couple are both vaccinated against rabies. They opted to bring the injured fox pup back to their house, where they could nurse it back to health. After a few days of the fox’s recovery, the couple took it to the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center in Virginia.  It spent six months in an outside area, getting bigger and stronger before ultimately being released back into the wild.

It's A Good Idea To Make Sure Your Food Is Dead Before You Try To Eat It

It’s A Good Idea To Make Sure Your Food Is Dead Before You Try To Eat It

Despite their bad reputation in some circles, frog legs can be pretty delicious. That being said, it takes a skilled chef to prepare them just right. Oh, and you also need to be prepared for the legs to move a little bit. You see, at the time of death, a frog’s legs are still biologically functional. If the muscles are stimulated — with electricity, for example — they can move. You can get the same effect by adding simple table salt to the legs while they’re still raw. That’s because table salt contains the same kind of sodium ions that are used in batteries. The sodium ions enter the negatively charged muscle cells. That causes a pretty bizarre reaction, as you can see in the video below. (via Brain Stuff Show) The muscles will go on moving like that until they’ve used up all of the remaining adenosine triphosphate (ATP) […]

This Incredible Therapy Dog Is Inspiring The World With Her Unique Talent

This Incredible Therapy Dog Is Inspiring The World With Her Unique Talent

Most dogs love to catch Frisbees, some dogs enjoy chasing after cats, and then there are those dogs who just want to spend every moment in bed, taking glorious naps. But there is one dog near San Diego who’d rather catch waves and capture hearts. Ricochet was born to become a service dog for those with disabilities. But she was a little mischievous and enjoyed chasing after birds a bit too much — not the best trait in a service dog who needs to provide constant attention to her companion. At first her owner was a bit disappointed, but she quickly realized that Ricochet had a very unique talent. A talent so special that it would end up helping hundreds of people with disabilities learn to surf! What a special dog Ricochet is, and she’s just as valuable on land! She’s raised more than $200,000 for different charities through both […]

Think Cows Are Just Food? You’ll Change Your Mind When You See This One With A Ball.

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 would happen… Want to see more? (Of course you do.) Check out extra footage of Herbie with his ball here and here!

Sperm Whales Don’t Sleep Often, But When They Do? It Looks Really Weird.

If you’ve ever had a pet fish, you’ve also had a dead pet fish. Whether they’re the gold fish you win at a carnival or the betas you buy at a pet store, they don’t tend to be known for their long lives.  When you see these sleepy sperm whales, you might be reminded of that moment you came home to an oddly floating fish, but don’t worry. They really are just sleeping. It somehow doesn’t make this seem any less creepy, though. YouTube Which is good since they’re a bit too big to flush down the toilet, anyway. (via Sploid.) They don’t sleep for very long, however, which is probably why no one really knew about their unusual position preference. Scientists report they only catch a few hours of ZZZs before they’re back to their normal function, so you probably don’t have to worry about them giving you the willies on your […]

As If It Wasn’t Already Bad Enough, Now This Will Truly Haunt My Dreams Forever. Ugh.

One of the most notorious venomous spiders in the world is the black widow. It may not be the most deadly, but it may be the most well known. There are a few species of black widow, but pretty much all of them are known by their shockingly black bodies with a bright red hourglass shape. And when you put one under a strong microscope, the creepiness just gets intensified. A Reddit user happened to have access to an SEM (scanning electron microscope) and put a male and female black widow underneath it… The female black widow’s dangerous venom is composed of neurotoxins.

This Seriously Creepy Sea Creature Belongs In A Science Fiction Movie.

Singapore fisherman Ong Han Boon reeled in some doozies in his day, but nothing prepared him for the shocking discovery he made recently. The animal, with its writhing arms, looks like it came straight from a sci-fi flick. Actually, it came from the dark depths of the ocean, where humans rarely go. Boon told his local radio station he was “totally flummoxed” when the fish surfaced. YouTube Unsure about what it was, Boon’s first thought was that he “discovered a new species of mutant sea creature.” YouTube Although it isn’t quite an otherworldly creature, Boon said he wouldn’t have been surprised because of how polluted the waters are. YouTube I would probably scream if I reeled in one of these things…  The fisherman later learned with the help of the Internet that the creature was a basket starfish. They typically live in deep sea environments and can have life spans of up to 35 […]

Your bedroom doesn’t stop absolutely terrifying monstrosities from being born every day. (You probably think I’m kidding. I’m not.) Even more horrifying?

These Animal Skeletons Are Out Of The Closet And Running Amuck In Your Home.

Marc Da Cunha Lopes is a French artist who loves biology and science fiction. In his series of photographs entitled, ‘Vertebrata’ the artist explores both in the coolest fashion. These skeletons, which appear to be creatures from some unexplored moon in the Guardians of The Galaxy universe, are actually just blown up skeletons of birds, monkeys, cats and other critters. He set them in abandoned households and other locations so that in Da Cunha’s mind it appears as though “they are looking for those who made them.” This is way creepier than I thought it’d be… (H/T: Wired) If your friends have ever wondered what it looks like to disturb a creepy alien monkey skeleton from its slumber, give this a share on Facebook.     Read more: http://viralnova.com/skeletons-out-of-the-closet/

Here Are Some Monster Fishes That Agree You Shouldn’t Go Swimming.

To some, fishing is a way to find serenity of the mind and return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.  To others, it is a boring excuse to hang out with mosquitoes and then occasionally (if you’re lucky) pull sea-monsters onto your boat and fight them until they suffocate before your eyes.  Take a look at these amazing creatures professional fishermen have caught and rejoice that you didn’t have to! In 2009, Japanese fisherman, Manabu Kurita, caught a 22lb. 4oz. largemouth bass, tying the world record set in 1932. The bass itself currently holds the record for singing Bobby McFarren’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” in the deepest of baritones. Raymond Houtmans caught the largest tigerfish ever recorded at 97lb. in 1988. Judging by his face in the photo, we assume it was done out of red-hot revenge. The record for largest blue catfish ever caught was done by Greg […]

Those of you who have a dog know how excited and hyper they get during playtime. This is especially true if the game in question has anything to do with objects that they can fetch.

They Wanted To Know What Made A Rattlesnake Rattle, So They Cut It Open

They Wanted To Know What Made A Rattlesnake Rattle, So They Cut It Open

Rattlesnakes are considered some of the most sophisticated creatures in the world, and they have the tails to prove it. Scientists believe these defense mechanisms to be highly sophisticated warning signals, which makes rattlesnakes uniquely terrifying. It’s a one-of-a-kind trait that not many people understand, so let’s take a closer look at what’s really going on when these serpents defend themselves. The noises that they generate ward off predators. Their tails rattle about 50 times per second, and they can keep that up for hours on end if necessary. Imgur / Daedalus031 The rattles are made of keratin, and every time snakes molt, their tails get a bit longer. When rattlesnakes travel, they keep their tails up to avoid damaging them, since they rely on those noisemakers for survival. Reddit / GoldenWizard The guys in this video wanted to learn more, so they went ahead and cut a rattlesnake’s tail […]

She Couldn't Decide Which Dog To Adopt From A Shelter, So She Took All Of Them

She Couldn’t Decide Which Dog To Adopt From A Shelter, So She Took All Of Them

On her travels for Dog Tales Rescue and Sanctuary, cofounder Danielle Eden visits shelters around the world. Looking for dogs in tremendous need of being evacuated to a safer home in Ontario, Canada, she’s sadly grown used to seeing pups living in substandard conditions. But one day, approaching a run-down shelter in Israel, she saw something that truly took her breath away. Eden remembers what she encountered in a Facebook post, “To say that the shelter was overcrowded is an understatement, with more than 250 dogs crammed into a space with the capacity for 70. There were as many as 6 dogs in each cage, all fighting over the loaves of bread that they were being fed.” All the dogs had been there far too long, were terrified, and riddled with diseases. Instead of just picking out a few dogs to try and save though, Eden decided to do something […]

Cat Is Rescued After Getting His Head Stuck In An Iron Fence

Cat Is Rescued After Getting His Head Stuck In An Iron Fence

When a stray cat got his head stuck between the bars of an iron fence, the Los Angeles Animal Services Specialized Mobile Animal Rescue Team, otherwise known as SMART, was called out to rescue the feline in distress. The stray, nicknamed Midnight by neighbors, was known to regularly go in and out of the bottom of the fence. But one day, after being cruelly shot twice with a BB gun, the poor kitty got scared and ran through the wrong hole. After trying to gently push his head back through the bars, the rescue team enlisted the help of a vet technician who sedated Midnight as the team successfully freed him from the gate. After his dramatic rescue, Midnight was taken to an animal shelter to be cared for, and I’m very happy to report that the little guy was adopted soon after by a loving family.

This Fox Decided To Play With A Doggie Toy. Its Owner Was Not Happy About It.

When Lupe Johnson realized she had left her toy out in the yard, it was already too late. All she could do when she saw that fox playing with her beloved plaything is bark. Being a dog kind of limits your options when it comes to responding to things, not that the fox would have listened if Lupe politely asked it to leave the toy alone, anyway. Watch Lupe react to seeing the fox have fun with her personal property. I have to admit, it’s pretty funny to see Lupe get all worked up, but I wish her better luck with her toys in the future. Check it out!   // Post by Lupe Johnson. Post by Lupe Johnson. EDIT Wait a second! That fox wasn’t intimidated by this? How? Lupe Johnson I think Lupe learned a valuable lesson about leaving her toys out in the yard. I know I did. […]
