Adult Corgi Teaches His Little Puppy Friend How To Sit In The Cutest Way

Adult Corgi Teaches His Little Puppy Friend How To Sit In The Cutest Way

The best way to teach someone how to do something is to show them exactly how it’s done. Zeus the corgi understands that all too well, which is why he took a very hands-on approach when it came to teaching his puppy friend how to sit properly. In case you don’t speak dog, this is how their conversation went: “No no no little guy, that’s not how you sit. Let me show you how it’s done. Chest up, bottom down, like so…” *Puts paw on butt.* “There, now you get treats!” The tiny legs of these two darlings push the cuteness off the charts!

If You’re A Crazy Pet Parent, You’ll Understand These 14 Things On A Spiritual Level

I decided long ago that the only babies I’d ever have in my life would have four legs, wagging tails, and wet noses. Whether you exclusively want little ones of the fuzzy variety or your heart is big enough for babies of all kinds, you know that there’s a certain psychosis we all share as crazy pet moms and dads. Is spending $60 on the perfect harness nuts? Definitely not! Is flooding social media with pictures of your furbaby a crime? Nope. (In fact, it is a gift.) Here are 14 funny realities of pet parenthood that we all know a little too well. 1. Even if you haven’t seen your human family members for a long time, you ultimately just ask about the dog. 2. “Your” Instagram account actually belongs to the fuzzy creature that’s slowly taken over your life. 3.

Two Golden Retrievers Kept Their Owner Alive For Two Days After She Fell.

Two Golden Retrievers Kept Their Owner Alive For Two Days After She Fell.

They say dogs are a man’s best friend, but apparently, they are also our guardian angels. A Florida woman suffered a near-fatal fall survived the ordeal thanks to her two golden retrievers, Higgins and Dodger. The 76-year-old broke her shoulder and bruised her head when she fell in her kitchen. The woman lives by herself and has Parkinson’s disease, so she could not get up on her own and drifted in and out of consciousness for two days. As she lay there helplessly for two days, the dogs stayed with her, not having any access to water or food during that time. The two dogs kept her warm, and kept her as comfortable as they could. But according to the woman, the main thing they did for her was to let her know that she was not alone. The woman was eventually found by a worried friend who had a […]

Dogs Don’t Judge Their Humans For Anything, Even Being Homeless. So Touching.

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 order to make sure their best friends don’t go hungry. Organizations like Pets of the Homeless have set out to offer aid to these beloved animals by providing food and veterinary assistance to homeless animals across the United States and Canada. They have also shared these sobering photos of the pets with their owners […]

He’d Been In The Hospital For 8 Days Before A Nurse Brought His Friend To See Him

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 and water for the faithful little dog. On the eighth day of his wait, the hospital made an exception to their no-animals rule and allowed the forlorn pooch to visit his friend. This is the heartwarming moment the two are reunited! You can really see how much the little guy […]

Animal Rescuers Find 5 Puppies Left To Die In The Freezing Cold

For many, especially animal lovers, the prospect of abandoning pets by the side of a road is unimaginable and cruel. Yet hundreds of helpless animals find themselves on the street without any food or water every day. They often go days without eating before they’re found, and some are never found at all. Luckily, the five puppies in the video below were rescued by incredible people from the Michigan Humane Society (MHS). googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); After receiving a call about a plastic container on the side of the road, the MHS went to investigate.

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.

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. […]
