Sadness is a dog who has lost his favorite toy.
The love story of Blanky the French bulldog and this tennis ball is quite like a Shakespearean tragedy. In the YouTube video, the pooch reaches for the beloved ball, which is just out of his grasp on a couch – but to no avail. The adorable dog whines, weeps and barks at the painful distance between them – and you're left wondering if the pair will ever be together again.
The behavior of cats and dogs is confusing enough for most, but Dr. Susan Kelleher deals with a whole different set of animal issues.
How do you perform surgery on a fish? Give a tortoise a check-up? These are questions for which exotic animal veterinarian Dr. Kelleher has to find answers, and now she is giving animal lovers a peek into her wild and furry life.
Some friendships are fleeting.
That person you bonded with in the never-ending post office line, that guy you shared a knowing glance with on an overcrowded train – those friendships are there when you need them then gone tomorrow, but you're a slightly different person because of them.
One day, an adorable rescued fawn and a neighborhood kitten struck up such a friendship, and it was all captured in a YouTube video by TheLightHouseLady.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Ricky, a 10-month-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix from the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
This adorable pup is the unofficial chairman of the center's welcome committee. A staff favorite, Ricky sits in the laps of every volunteer and visitor, and befriends every new canine roommate with affection or a tail wag.
Happy, playful and cuddly are some of the best ways to describe Ricky – so why hasn't he found his forever yet? Nobody knows.
"This is one of those question marks we see from time to time," says adoption services manager Adele Murillo. "Every now and again we'll get a wonderful dog who doesn't whine or bark for attention but just kind of waits his turn. It's almost as though his sweet personality gets him overlooked. He's really a love and he's going to make someone a very happy adopter."
Ice cream and chocolate sauce, peanut butter and jelly, rest and relaxation – some combos are just meant to be together.
Much like hot guys and adorable dogs.
N.Y.C.-based animal rescue, Louie's Legacy, has brought the two together for its new calendar, appropriately named "Hunks and Hounds."
It's an unthinkable sight: 20 tiny puppies left for dead in the harsh temperatures of Saskatchewan, Canada.
But that is what Greg Zubiak came across on Friday while hunting moose in the woods.
Zubiak told the CBC he found the animals huddled together in the cold weather with no help in sight. The hunter quickly stripped off his sweaters and bundled up the puppies before putting them in his truck and driving to Battleford's Humane Society.
So this sums up exactly how we feel about October.
We wonder what his percentage is.
Ayleen O'Hanlon is a singer-songwriter from Victoria, Australia. George is her cat. O'Hanlon says that George "gets a little needy" from time to time, which may explain why he's "helping" her perform her tune "Loverless" by perching on her guitar, shoving his posterior in her face and batting at her guitar strings.
Australian man Rodney Langham seems to spend a lot of time with kangaroos. At least, that's what his YouTube channel would suggest.
Move over, rubber duckie. This baby bunny makes bath time way more fun than you.
This 2-week-old fluffy rabbit seems completely confused at first about the bathing process (watch the video above). She sniffs the water – which tickles her nose! – and then stares blankly at the camera, as if to say, "Is this some-bunny's idea of a joke?"
