Proof That Working At Animal Hospitals, Shelters, And Rescues Is The Best Job

Proof That Working At Animal Hospitals, Shelters, And Rescues Is The Best Job

Blog
I love my job. I mean, who wouldn't? I get to write about puppies, kittens, inspiring stories, travel destinations...you name it! But that doesn't mean I don't have serious job-envy of others. No, I'm not talking about people who earn millions or travel the world for a living (though that is up there)...instead, I am über-jealous of those who work at animal hospitals, shelters, and rescues. While the work is tough, it is SO rewarding. And here's the proof. 1. Even if someone is looking over your shoulder, it doesn't feel overbearing. Reddit / Blowitback 2. And even if the waiting room is full, it's totally adorable -- not annoying. Reddit / viva_oldtrafford 3. Patients really know h...

This Dog Was Rescued But When His Dad Left For A Week, This Is How He Welcomed Him Back

Blog
Every rescue dog owner can tell you that their pups are probably some of the most grateful around. Because of us, the cute canines get a second chance at a happy life. Which is why, when we leave them, even if it's just to go to work or on vacation for a few days, it feels like the end of the world. What if they don't come back? What if I run out of food? Who will throw my ball for me?...Are all questions we imagine run through their silly brains. When Patch's dad went away for a week, this was how he welcomed him back. We bet he felt a world of relief when he saw his face again! Patch gave his dad all the kisses...and that tail wag! What a happy reunion. Here's hoping that on his next trip, Patch's dad takes him with! Read more: ht...

Synesthesia is the neurological condition in which the stimulation of one sense leads to the automatic experience of another sense. That might sound confusing, and it is for most people who aren't affected by it, but as an example, when some synesthetes hear a number or letter, they immediately picture a color. That color is always associated with that particular character.For Melissa McCraken, though, her synesthesia also manifests itself when music comes on -- she hears a song and immediately pictures colors, images, and textures. What she does with that experience is nothing short of breathtaking. It wasn't until she was 15 that McCracken realized not everyone saw letters and numbers as colors, too.

You probably didn't know that babies have it pretty rough, did you? I mean, aside from daycare and looking adorable, they pretty much carry the weight of the world on their tiny little shoulders. And what a weight it is! Which is why, four-month-old John here has it all figured out. You've gotta start your day off with a good massage.(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));Sqor SportsSo here's my 4 month old son, John. Apparently he already loves back massages in the morning to start his day on the right note! So darn cute! https://sqor.com...

Adorable Baby Goat Defies All The Odds And Walks On Just Two Legs

Blog
When I think of baby goats, these little guys in pjs come to mind: But sadly, not all babies are born into such happy circumstances. When farmhands welcomed this baby goat into the world six months ago, they weren't sure he would make it. Why? Well, the little guy only had two front legs. But the determined kid defied the odds. Not only did he stand up on his two legs that first day, but he's walking and running around like all his siblings today! While it might take him a little bit longer to get from place to place, he's an inspiration to us all! Soon he'll be annoying his siblings like this little kid.

Watching This Dog’s Patience While A Lizard Crawls On His Face Is Hilarious

Watching This Dog’s Patience While A Lizard Crawls On His Face Is Hilarious

Adorable seven-year-old bulldog Yun Ja has inspired me to be a calmer, more patient person. How did a silly bulldog make me want to change my ways? Well, it's pretty simple, you see. When a green lizard hopped onto the short pup's back unexpectedly, he didn't freak out, running around trying to buck the reptile off his back (like many of us probably would have). googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); No, instead, he sat there patiently waiting for the little guy to hop off and get on his merry way. He does try to lick him off, but even those gestures are adorably gentle. This is basically what I would have done had this happened to me. So yeah, let's all just learn to be a bit more chill, channeling Yun Ja. Read more: http://www....

This Kid’s Dad Makes Him Feel Like Spider-Man By Doing This Around Their House

Most kids look to their dads as superheroes. I know I was certainly one of them. But when it comes to this father and his little son, it might be the other way around. When the toddler dressed up like Spider-Man, the transformation to real-life superhero just wasn't complete without one simple thing. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); I HOPE I'm this cool as a parent. How fun would that be? But he's not the only super-cool dad. There's also this one who turns regular trips to the store into sci-fi films with video editing. This guy helps his little girl really live what's happening on TV. How was your dad a superhero? Better yet, how'd he make you feel like one? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/spider-kid/

Little Girl Becomes Best Friends With An Unexpected Woodland Visitor

Blog
As a little girl, there was nothing I wanted more in the world than to be friends with a woodland creature. Disney taught me to crave the friendship of a kind bear cub, bird, or even deer. But alas, that playful doe never came to my door and I had to "settle" for a dog. But Maya here is not so unlucky. When her family returned home from a canoe trip, an unexpected visitor stumbled into their yard. The incredible bond that formed in just minutes of interaction will shock you...and definitely make you jealous of the little girl's new best friend. She's basically a Disney princess!

Ahhh weddings...they're wonderful celebrations of love, happiness, and a lifetime of debt from your huge reception. I joke, I kid! googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); But seriously, weddings are so much fun. Until they're not. Whether it's Aunt Sally drinking too much or a bridesmaid sloppily hooking up with an underage cousin on the dance floor -- they can turn bad (and hilarious) real fast. Thankfully, some genius souls caught a bunch of these wedding fails on camera. Just pray these never happen on your big day. 1. This bridesmaid put her best face forward in an effort to catch the bouquet... 2. It was definitely someone's job to be the spotter. 3. I mean, that's what you get when you have penguins at your wedding. Duh. 4. In al...
