WATCH: Winter the Bouncing Lamb Is Ready to Jump Into the Weekend

Originally posted 08/29/2014 02:00 PM

Winter is coming! No really, here she is.

In this case Winter isn't a ominous Game of Thrones weather forecast, but an adorable little lamb. Shannen of Victoria, Australia, recently found the tiny farm animal abandoned at only a day old.

The woman took the wooly baby back to her house to keep an eye on, and quickly bonded with the lamb. Shannen decided to name her new pet Winter. The animal must approve of her new title, because any time Shannen shouts "Winter," the cutie comes running.

See How Spike the Cockatoo Feeds the Dogs

Cockatoos are among the most affectionate of all birds, but few of them have ever gone above and beyond in the service to their brother animals as Spike the cockatoo.

As seen in this video, Spike does a lunchtime solid for a pair of Great Danes, using his avian wits to reach into a box of Milk Bones and get some dog treats, which he then throws down on the floor for the hungry hounds.

It's an impossible mission, but this squirrel gladly accepts it.

Channeling daredevil Tom Cruise in one of his action movies, this very nimble squirrel is cruising for a bruising as he ascends a creaky bird feeder in an attempt to steal food from it – and he gets totally busted by a GoPro camera in the process.

Adopt Me! Help Hazel Complete Her Transformation

Originally posted 08/29/2014 10:00 AM

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Hazel, a 3-year-old hound mix who has made a massive transformation over the past few months.

When the pup arrived at The Simon Foundation in Bloomfield, Connecticut, she was emaciated, hairless and too weak to stand – obviously a victim of neglect. She was covered with flea dirt, had pressure sores all over her body from laying on a hard surface, and the pads of her feet were raw.

in Action!

As far as pooches go, he's about as close to perfect (ahem, paw-fect) as one can get.

But that's not why Jiff has landed a spot in the latest Guinness World Records book, which they're calling the most comprehensive collection of facts, feats and achievements ever compiled. (It's also Guinness World Records's 60th anniversary.)

The L.A.-based Pomeranian is actually the fastest dog on two paws, having reached 10 meters on his hind legs in 6.56 seconds and 5 meters on his front paws in 7.76 seconds. See him in action below!

When editors of the book first set eyes on the fluffy pup, they did a double take.

Panda Fakes Pregnancy to Receive More Treats (We're Not Judging)

It's a plot plucked from a soap-opera script.

Displeased with her day-to-day life, Ai Hin concocts a plan to fake a pregnancy in a desperate plea for more attention – and treats! (Bwahahahaha.)

On Tuesday, experts at China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding revealed that they caught on to Ai Hin the panda's scheme – dun, dun, dun! – and canceled a live broadcast they were planning of the cub's birth, which would have been the world's first.

World's Oldest Wombat Is a 29-Year-Old Virgin

We have Steve Carell's next comedy vehicle all squared away.

Meet Patrick, the world's oldest living wombat, a virgin, who celebrates his 29th birthday this month.

Chatter about the chaste wombat, who lives at Australia's Ballarat Wildlife Park, ramped up this week when Australia.com's Facebook page posted a message in honor of Patrick's birthday on Sunday.

"Happy Birthday Patrick the Wombat! This 29-year-old is the world's oldest living wombat. Given that Patrick has never had children, or any partners in general, probably makes him the oldest living wombat virgin as well! Congrats mate!"

This Dog Helps Her Owner Carry Groceries, So Every Other Dog Can Go Home Now

Originally posted 08/27/2014 02:30 PM

One time, our dogs only partially chewed up our shoes and didn't totally hog the bed at night. We were quite pleased.

But then we met Millie, and everything changed. Now we're not all that impressed. You see, Millie helps her owners carry groceries, door-to-door from the car to the house. (Watch the video above.)
