13 Signs Your Dog Really Loves You (As Demonstrated By My Dog Lucca)

13 Signs Your Dog Really Loves You (As Demonstrated By My Dog Lucca)

Last night, I was feeling weirdly insecure. Not about the way I look. Not about my job performance. Not about a stupid boy. No, I was feeling insecure about my dog Lucca and whether or not she truly loves me. I like to think Lucca channels her thoughts through me for me to speak aloud and those thoughts are usually pretty supportive and worshipful. But what if I’m wrong? What if I’m totally misinterpreting what Lucca is actually saying to me through her thoughts? What if she … finds me deeply annoying? So I Googled it. Specifically “signs your dog loves you.” And I was able to breathe a sigh of relief. Turns out, Lucca’s actions and body language speak volumes — she thinks I AM A GOD. Click onward to learn just some of the signs your dog loves you, as presented by Lucca herself! Keep reading »

The Daily Squee: Little Boy With Down Syndrome Hugs Pushy Labrador Retriever

New Friends

Pets are nothing if not persistent when there’s affection to be had. Nowhere is that better illustrated than this squee-dorable video of a little boy with Down Syndrome being won over with love by a pushy Labrador retriever. The boy, Hernan, lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is shy about physical contact. At first Hernan isn’t so sure about this big galoot shoving his wet nose in his face. But the Lab is persistent — in that gentle, perfect way all Labs are — and finally Hernan gives him a big hug. Labs are the greatest, aren’t they? I dare you to watch this video — which is over a year old, but making the rounds on the “Today” show and Huffington Post just now — and not get the warm and fuzzies.  [Today]

15 Reasons Why Baby Animal Photos Are Better Than Real Babies

The photos released of a gaggle of painfully adorable baby pandas in China this week has left me a little more obsessed than usual with all things baby and furry. In photo form, baby animals are pretty much the best thing in the world — all that cuteness with no caretaking required. I love real babies and all, but I’d choose pictures of puppies and tiger cubs instead any day of the week. So, inspired by Jessica’s post this week about how Internet-famous cats are much better than real life cats, are 14 reasons why baby animal photos are better than real babies.  Keep reading »

This Lion, Tiger, And Bear (Oh My!) Are Best Friends Forever

Lion Tiger Bear BFF
"There definitely is something special between them."

Baloo the bear, Leo the lion, and Shere Kahn the tiger had a rough childhood. As cubs they lived with drug dealers who abused and neglected them, treating the wild animals like exotic playthings. The trio was rescued from their hellish upbringing 12 years ago, but when trainers at the Noah’s Ark animal sanctuary tried to separate them, they acted out. “I think that the ordeal they went through as youngsters really bonded them together,” a sanctuary spokesperson told ABC News. “That’s all that they had. They only had each other for comfort.” Trainers reluctantly let the animals share an enclosure, and for over a decade now the three best friends have lived together in interspecies peace, happiness, and harmony. Unfortunately Noah’s Ark has recently run into some trouble: due to a new fence height requirement, the Georgia sanctuary is going to have to double the height of the fence surrounding Baloo, Leo, and Shere Khan’s enclosure, and as a nonprofit they can’t afford to make the changes without some pretty massive fundraising efforts. Over $200,000(!) has already been donated, but they’re hoping to reach $500,000 to build the new fences and keep helping mistreated and abused exotic animals for many years to come. You can donate here if you feel so inclined! [ABC News]
