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 Poor Dog Was Found Literally Being Eaten Alive…But Look At Him Now!

This Poor Dog Was Found Literally Being Eaten Alive…But Look At Him Now!

Blog
We've seen a lot of extreme dog rescues, but nothing quite like this case. When Teddy Bear the dog was found in India, he was literally being eaten alive by maggots. After sustaining a facial wound that went untreated, maggots took up residence on Teddy Bear's face. By the time Animal Aid Unlimited got to him, both of his eyes had swollen shut. The poor animal was in excruciating pain and scratching incessantly. Saving his life wouldn't be easy, but they had to try. Watch as Teddy Bear goes from a dog being eaten by maggots to a brand-new pup. A word of warning: the content is graphic and may be hard to watch.

Hilarious Dad Creates A Lengthy Contract That The Kids Must Sign Before Getting A Dog

Hilarious Dad Creates A Lengthy Contract That The Kids Must Sign Before Getting A Dog

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); A lot of parents tell their kids that if they want a dog, they'll have to take care of it. But this dad? He really, really meant it. In fact, he was so serious about his desire to not have a big, slobbery, stinky, poorly behaved dog that he drew up a very long, very specific, and very funny contract for his kids to sign. He laid out an almost impossible set of standards for finding and caring for a dog, and he's basically the most hilarious parent ever. "The dog does not slobber or have a runny nose. All parties agree that those kinds of dogs are gross." Reddit / rjohnstone13 googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag....

When This Dog Goes For A Car Ride, He Does The Funniest Thing!

Blog
Fact: dogs love to stick their heads out the window during car rides. But this bloodhound takes that rush to a whole new level whenever his dad takes the top down on his Jeep. If you think your pooch looks silly when he sticks his head out the window -- slobber and loose skin going everywhere -- you'll be downright impressed with this adorably happy pup as he rides in the front. Of course, the big guy is strapped in, safe and sound...which makes us wonder -- where can we get a rig like that for our car? If there's one thing our dogs need, it's a ride just like this!

15 Things That You’re Doing All Wrong While Training Your Pooch

Blog
Training a dog is hard work, but it's so important to your pup's future well-being. There are a lot of dos and don'ts floating around out there, but a lot of them are flat-out wrong. There are certain times and ways you should punish your dog, but there are some circumstances you've probably been treating wrong the whole time. Here are 15 things you're doing wrong when training your adorable pooch. 1. Don't expect them to come if you're not going to reward them. A photo posted by Rufus (@rufuscavachon) on Nov 12, 2015 at 1:27pm PST While it's nice to think that dogs will come every time we call, it's important to remember that they still need a little incentive. Make sure that even after a simple command like "come!" is obeyed, you give them a good scruff on the head and tell them they...

This Tiny Dachshund Puppy Is About To Throw The Cutest Tantrum Ever, So Suit Up

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); The world's cutest puppy doesn't want to take his mom's orders. And he isn't afraid to let her know. When little Napoleon got in the car the other day, he was so confused about why she wouldn't let him sit on her lap. Because he is a master in the art of protest, he put up the cutest fight the internet has ever seen. How could you say no to that little face? "Try to mess with me again, lady!" Something tells me he'll be sitting on his mama's lap next time. Just saying. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/doxie-tantrum/

This Woman’s Stalker Followed Her Around Like A Lost Puppy, So She Took Him Home

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); I've said this time and time again, but the fact remains that I'm a bit of a scaredy cat. I'm well into my twenties and I still have a fear that one day, I'm going to be kidnapped. My mother jokes that the person who takes me will bring me back in a hurry, but that doesn't stop me from being cautious. In a five-minute walk to the store, it's not uncommon for me to peer over my shoulder at least six times. If I ever do acquire a stalker, I hope they're as adorable as the one following this German flight attendant. Olivia Sievers works for a prominent airline in Europe and she frequently travels to Argentina for work. During these trips, she stays in the same hotel near Bu...

Whoever Did This To Bertie The Pug Isn’t Human. They Need To Rot In Jail.

LIFE
There's almost nothing worse than abuse of the innocent...which includes animal abuse. Pets give us unyielding trust and love, but that doesn't matter to abusive animal owners. It's so hard to see pets suffer. After all, those animals could be our pets. They could be the same defenseless puppy that we picked up out of the litter and brought into our lives. They could be the companion that snuggles with us in bed, and nuzzles us under the covers.  That's why today's story is so infuriating. When rescuers found Bertie the pug, she was on the brink of death. Abused and neglected, she was no more than a couple of days away from perishing. Bertie had no access to the extreme medical care needed to save her life. That's when our friends at Finding Shelter stepped in. ...

This Pomeranian Is A Better Piano Player Than I’ll Ever Be

I may have been a band geek in high school, but one instrument I never quite seemed to master was the piano. I purchased a keyboard from a yard sale for $5 and could play a few chords, but I wasn't going to be auditioning for the Boston Pops anytime soon. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); Although I may never be Mozart, this piano-playing pooch might just be the next great classical pianist. Shila has been practicing the piano since she was born and is already performing sold-out shows in her own living room.

Tessa the doberman has a hard job. As one of the most fearsome guard dog breeds in the world, she has to look tough all the time. Otherwise, the other pups will obviously make fun of her. That's why something tells us she wouldn't be too happy to have this video of her floating around the Internet.When she was still a puppy, she was confronted by the tiniest and apparently most terrifying toy in the world. Instead of calmly approaching it, and being the tough dog she wants you to think she is, her reaction was far more priceless... Poor Tessa, your owners have the perfect blackmail video now. But don't worry, we're sure you can get back at them by holding a pair of their favorite shoes hostage! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/doberman-toy/
