It’s Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time

It's Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time
Run, Beagles, Runnnnnn!!!!

I am so glad I worked from home today and am not wearing my meticulously applied black liquid eyeliner, because it would be completely ruined and streaming halfway down my face after watching this video. The Beagle Freedom Project is dedicated to rescuing the adorable breed from a life spent in cages as test subjects for laboratory research. Beagles are the most popular breed for such experiments because of their sweet, docile nature, and are often bred and sold by commercial breeders to scientific research labs for such purposes. The Beagle Freedom Project rescues those sweet pups and finds them loving forever homes. In the video above, watch as nine recently rescued beagles are brought outside and experience the freedom to run and frolic for the very first time. I’m simultaneously shedding tears of sadness and joy. RUN, SWEET BEAGLE BABIES, RUNNNN!!!!! And if you’re interested in more information on the Beagle Freedom Project, including adopting a beagle into your own family, click here. [via The Daily Dot]

Watch These Smiley Dogs Jamming To Pharrell’s “Happy”

Dream Life Status

I have seen a lot of animal videos in my time on this earth, but none of them have made me smile bigger than these dogs frolicking around in time with Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Didga the skateboarding cat even makes an appearance amongst all the canines. Pharrell should have put more overjoyed puppies in his original music video, because what’s more cheerful than that? And where do I show up to play on the beach with dogs all day? Sign me up!

Would You Feed And Talk To Your Pets Via Remote Control?

It's Like Skype, But For Puppies

Another addition to the “high-tech kitty feeder” canon has come onto the scene, and it allows you to watch, listen to and chat with your pets long-distance via wifi. When inventor Ken Powers couldn’t find a reliable product online to feed his two cats while he was away, he decided to create his own. Enter the PetPal, which feeds your dog, cat, rabbit, or other cute critter on command with the help of an app. He wants the very best for his cats, so he put the feeder together with his trusty 40-year-old toaster in mind — built to last rather than be replaced every few years like a smartphone.

Oh, But The Sweet, Perfect, Simple Wisdom Of A Dog!

What Dogs Can Teach Us
Now I REALLY want a dog!

Nat Johnson’s new song, “Dog,” is a sweet ode to how lovely it is to have a dog, inspired by all the happy dogwalkers she saw in the park near her home. The just-released music video is a beautiful animation that perfectly illustrates the song’s central theme: dogs can teach us so much. My favorite line: “It’s important to walk/there are friends left to meet.” Perfect. [Brain Pickings]
