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

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. Much to his surprise, instead of selfishly keeping the treat, the ape threw the food back to Vitaly. That orangutan has one heck of an arm! Not to mention fantastic aim. I was half expecting him to fumble it and throw the food […]

Puppies Form An Adorable Pinwheel While They Chow Down On Their Dinner

This adorable group of Doberman puppies seems to be trying to stay in shape by getting in some cardio during mealtime. The cute video shows the puppies’ owner placing a huge circular container full of food on the ground, but rather than them all jumping in and fighting over the kibble, the seven pups all take their place around the container. Then…they begin to rotate around the bowl just like a pinwheel! That’s the cutest version of Ring Around The Rosie I’ve ever seen! YouTube / ViralHog This gets me wondering, if we took these cuties to the Southern Hemisphere, would they spin in the opposite direction? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/puppy-pinwheel/

Smart Seagull Wins Every Round Of The Shell Game For Tasty Treats

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Everyone knows the classic game in which three inverted cups are moved around and contestants must guess which one is hiding the playing piece. Well, in this case, the contestant was a very smart seagull and the playing piece was a tasty treat. Either this bird is super smart or he’s a compulsive gambler — already familiar with every trick up the dealer’s sleeve. This hungry seagull isn’t falling for your nonsense, puny human!

These Adorable Photos Capture Cute Puppies Shaking All Their Worries Away.

Photographer Carli Davidson previously released a book of adorable doggies of all ages shaking away their woes, but her second installment in the series focuses solely on the particular preciousness of puppy faces. Her inspiration came after visiting a second grade classroom taught by a friend and showing the children her first book. When she asked what they’d like to see in the next one, they all agreed on two things: “puppies!” and “color!” Davidson was happy to oblige, but finding four legged models who were exclusively under a year old did become a bit of a challenge.  One huge difficult factor came from her refusal to work with unethical breeders. Carli Davidson Photography Instead, she only worked with rescue shelters and pet owners to ensure she wasn’t promoting the terrible puppy farming industry. Carli Davidson Photography She met with around 100 different cuties and includes about 70 of those shots in her newest book. […]

Is This Russia Or Winterfell? This Family Has Their Own Brood Of Pet Wolves.

Is This Russia Or Winterfell? This Family Has Their Own Brood Of Pet Wolves.

Russia suddenly looks a lot more like the fictional kingdom of Winterfell from HBO’s Game of Thrones. And I’m not talking about the winter-y weather, either. This family has tamed their own brood of wolves who they share their home with just north of Minsk. (I’m sure they have a bit more luck than the Starks, though.)  When you how close 10-year-old Alisa Selekh is to her pet wolf, you’ll be amazed. For the past five years, her father Oleg worked on domesticating the typically violent canines and today they are so docile you’d hardly recognize their wild roots.  This doesn’t look like a big bad wolf to me!

This Little Girl Gets The Most Hilarious Surprise While Playing Peek-A-Boo.

This Little Girl Gets The Most Hilarious Surprise While Playing Peek-A-Boo.

Peek-a-boo is a childhood favorite when it comes to games. The rules are just the right level of simple and exciting for someone so tiny to be endlessly entertained by. That is, until someone changes the rules without warning. This little girl learned that the hard way when her dad paused their game to transform into someone else entirely. Or, y’know, just shave his beard. Her shock and horror is so adorable and hilarious. Take a look! (H/T: Daily Mail.) The dad, Bradley Bailey, received some overly critical comments on the video’s YouTube page, but he only has one regret: that it was filmed in portrait instead of landscape perspective.  Read more: http://viralnova.com/peekaboo-beard/

There’s Something Different About This Couple’s Radio Sing Along.

There’s nothing better than a good, old-fashioned road trip sing-along–especially one that puts a fun, inclusive twist on classic car ride entertainment. Take Paul and Tina Sirimarco for example.

If you’re a parent, then you know the never-ending battle to get your kids to eat their vegetables.

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.

Your Heart Will Melt When You Watch This Little Girl With Dwarfism Talk About Her Hopes

Your Heart Will Melt When You Watch This Little Girl With Dwarfism Talk About Her Hopes

Many of us are guilty of complaining about or feeling unsatisfied with our lives, even if we’re perfectly healthy. I do this more than I’d like to admit, but when I see how happy some people with disabilities are, it really puts things in perspective. This is especially true when it comes to these cuties. Six-year-old Maddy and two-year-old Briella are from Sydney, Australia, and they both have a rare form of dwarfism called diastrophic dysplasia. This condition has affected their bone and cartilage development, which has given them scoliosis. They also have to wear neck braces and use walkers because of their joint issues and short limbs. But despite all of the difficulties that they live with, these little girls are adorably upbeat. When special education teacher Christopher Ulmer asked them about their lives for Special Books by Special Kids, Maddy gave some pretty adorable answers. Read More: His […]

This Little French Bulldog Really Does NOT Trust His New Treat…

One of our dog’s many jobs is to protect his or her house from intruders and unwanted guests. Each pup makes their own judgement calls on the characters that enter their homes, and sometimes their apprehension is completely warranted. Other times, however, it’s a little harder to see why they’re so upset about something… Like this pup and his treat, for instance. Personally, I don’t see what’s so gosh darn threatening about it, but maybe I’m missing something. Either that, or this dog is just adorably weird. (I’m going to go with the latter.)

Among the temples, shrines (including one of the world’s largest shrines to Buddha) and ancient ruins, these adorable antlered animals are protected as national treasures and safely stray all around the area.

This Baby Penguin’s Reaction To Seeing A Human For The First Time Is Too Sweet

Joel Oleson, a travel writer, found himself in a funny position one day. While he was exploring, a baby penguin who’d never seen a human before waddled up to him. Not wanting to scare the creature, Oleson lay perfectly still. All he could do was let the penguin assess the situation, even if that meant letting the little one get its beak way too close to his eye. Well, I now have a new goal to add to my bucket list. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play with a baby penguin? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/baby-penguin-meeting/
