Video shows dog being dumped at roadside on Christmas Eve

No matter how old I get, no matter how many different things I see and hear each day, I will never understand how people can abandon their pets.

Every year, thousands of dogs and cats the world over are left dumped by owners they love. A U.K. animal charity has only this week opened an investigation after a Staffordshire bull terrier was left on its own at roadside.

As per Devon Live, the dog was dumped on Christmas Eve near Stoke-On-Trent, England, with CCTV catching a man in the act …

As per reports, the footage was caught at around 5pm on Christmas Eve, with a passerby having discovered the dog shivering and alone.

According to StokeTrentLive, RSPCA inspector Natalie Perehovsky said: “The vets scanned his microchip and we have traced two previous owners in the Birmingham area, but do not believe either are the current owners, and therefore not those responsible for abandoning the dog.

“The footage has to be seen to be believed, it’s just awful. To see the poor dog in such obvious distress jumping up at the car as it drives away it just heartbreaking. I can’t understand how someone could do this.”

The dog is currently being cared for by the RSPCA, but sadly he’s hardly the only pet to be abandoned this Christmas.

Unless we continue the fight to put a stop to this, dogs like this one will continue to be mistreated and left neglected.

Grizzly bear belly flops into pool then turns around and gives camera huge smile

It’s the middle of summer; the sun is shining and we’re spending plenty of time outdoors just soaking it up!

Here’s one guy who is clearly very excited about summer. Well, grizzly bear, to be more specific. The bear named Bruiser lives in Single Vision, a nature conservation center in Florida, USA, which cares and preserves endangered species.

This video was shot some time ago, but it never fails to make me smile. It was a hot summer day when Bruiser decided, well, to go for a swim. Or more specifically — a belly flop.

Thankfully, an animal welfare worker decided to grab their camera and film the whole scene — including the bear’s epic smile at the end.

This video has been seen by millions — and understandably so. What better inspiration than Bruiser to remind us to make the most out of our summer?

Please share if you agree and to spread Bruiser’s summer joy with your family and friends on Facebook.

7-year-old girl saved kitten that adults were too terrified to even look at

Animals come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. It also goes without saying that they all look very different.

While I think cats in particular are as gorgeous as can be, certain cats that have experienced a difficult life may not look as ‘appealing’ to the eye.
That was the case for Gülümser, a street cat in Istanbul, Turkey, who lived a life no cat should ever have to endure.

From the moment Gülümser was born, she lived amidst rubbish and filth on the busy streets of Istanbul. For the entire first four weeks of her life, she cried out constantly for help. But while many came across her, no one did anything to do to help.

Gülümser, which means “she who always smiles” in Turkish, was horribly disfigured — her mouth was misshaped, she was missing an ear, barely had a tongue left and her face was full of maggots and mites.

She looked so unusual that she soon became known as ‘monster’.

No one was willing to go anywhere near the poor creature — until one day, a 7-year-old girl heard the kitten’s cries.

The young girl soon discovered the tiny kitten hiding in the trash.

She immediately wanted to help and insisted on bringing the kitten home. Her, father, a physician, decided to try to treat the poor animal. And so the road to recover for little Gülümser began.

Gülümser was given medication, food, love, and much needed reconstructive surgery.

Amazing Transformation

With loads of love and care, the little miracle kitten slowly began to transform. She was full of courage and determination.

Look at her now — she is a gorgeous feline, living a happy life at her new forever home — all thanks to a little girl with a very big heart.

All animals deserve to be cared for a loved. It shouldn’t take a seven-year-old girl to remind us of that.

What an incredible transformation! This really tugs at the heartstrings. Share this story to celebrate Gülümser’s amazing recover and if you agree this little girl has a huge heart.

The challenge that only a few can handle: Are you able to find the letter that stands out?

Exercising the brain is just as important as exercising the body. In my opinion, one must regularly stimulate the brain, to heal it from those long days at work, getting it ready and fresh to start again the next day.

Brainteasers are a great way to achieve this, Crosswords and Sudoku are some of the most classic types, but lately, I’ve been attracted to a different kind of challenge online, the so-called optical illusions, or picture puzzles.

My friends and I have recently begun to send each other these types of puzzles almost daily. It’s a fun way to satisfy your competitive instinct while exercising your mind.

Can you find the letter that stands out?

The challenge below is a typical example of what my friends and I usually send to each other. You need to find the letter that’s different from the rest in the picture. Focus all your senses.

Here’s the picture. Can you find the letter that stands out?

How did it go? If you found it, congratulations! If you didn’t, no worries, you can see the answer below.

There’s a P hiding among all R’s. Not easy to find if you don’t focus.

Okay, we’ll try another one. Will you be able to find the letter that doesn’t belong this time? Here’s the picture.

This one is even harder so if you succeeded you should really give yourself a pat on the back. If you didn’t, below you can see the answer.

There! It’s quite difficult, I really struggled to find the W myself.

Teenage girl bullied and harassed for her weight, drops 138 pounds and looks like a movie star

There are a million and one reasons as to why someone might want to lose weight.

It could be for the health benefits, it could be to fit into certain size clothes, it could be simply because of the social stigma attached to being overweight.

For Josie Desgrand, a teenager from Australia, it was Instagram. At just 16-years-old, Josie tipped the scales at 280Ibs and knew something had to give. Unhappy with her body, she was constantly reminded of how other girls looked as she scrolled through her Instagram feed and saw slim, attractive models smiling back at her.

She’d tried diets before, but her failure to stick to them left her on a spiralling staircase of self-pity and excess junk food.

Eventually, she decided it was time to put her foot down …

Speaking to Bored Panda, Josie explained her ‘Eureka!’ moment.

“I went into my room and stripped down to my underwear,” she said. Then she made a deal with herself. “No longer fat Josie.”

“I took pictures of myself at different angles, excited for my next weight loss journey. I used tape measure and wrote down my dimensions knowing I had a long way to go, but I wanted to track every change, no matter how small.”

Josie set herself small targets and began to keep track of he progress. Before long, the 16-year-old noticed changes here and there. She adopted a low-carb, no-sugar diet and upped her water intake.

Alongside her dad – who joined her weight-loss journey by shedding the pounds himself – she was able to slim down to 198Ibs through dieting alone.

It was then that she kicked things up a notch by joining a gym.

Instead of being a source of envy and depression, Instagram became one of Josie’s strongest motivators. She began to accumulate followers who not only wanted to see her transformation, but also take tips and advice.

“I shared my meals and progress on my Instagram account @nolongerfatjosie. My followers quickly grew, and each was more supportive than the last. ‘You look great!’ They wrote. ‘Mmm, do you have the recipe?’”

“With people from all around the world along for my journey, I never thought about quitting. Putting aside an hour each night, I responded to every person. Being in their position before, I now wanted to help as many people as I could. ‘Keep going,’ I would write back when someone thought they couldn’t do it anymore.”

The change

Today, Josie weighs in at around 138Ibs, less than half her previous weight. What was initially a diet ended up becoming a lifestyle alteration Josie has reaped the benefits of.

The concept of weight loss is simple – ‘burn more calories than you consume’ but in reality it’s certainly not easy! For me, I had to change my mindset. I wanted to lose weight for so long, but it was usually for superficial reasons, wear a bikini, be more popular etc, but I found it wasn’t until I genuinely focussed on me, on my health, on being mindful of what I’m eating that my journey became successful. I realised it was going to be a tough journey and that it wasn’t just about seeing the number on the scales go down, but more about achieving small goals and making myself accountable for them. My next goal is to tone up, and I will get there, I just need to reset my focus. Happy Friday everyone!

What an incredible transformation by an extremely determined young woman. She’s an inspiration for people looking to change all over the world.

If you’re impressed by Josie’s weight loss, share this article on Facebook. You never know, you could motivate someone else to work on their own goals!

Congratulations, Josephine. You look gorgeous!


Lunch lady goes in for ‘emergency shift’ only to learn a stranger has been watching

Cheryl Stewart works in the cafeteria at Teton High School in Idaho.

She loves her job, but during the last couple of years Cheryl has been struggling. Put simply, her and her husband have been battling a bout of tough luck.

Cheryl’s husband is currently fighting against prostate cancer and lupus. Cheryl herself is a cancer survivor, but is now supporting her husband as he tries to win his own war.
Because he can’t work, Cheryl has taken on their financial responsibilities. She does various jobs around town, including cleaning. In addition to her job in the high school cafeteria, Stewart also bakes rolls for all the funerals in Teton Valley.

Basically, she works from sun up to sun down and every minute in-between. When she’s not working or taking care of her husband, that is.

Called her into work for an “emergency” shift
To make the situation even more problematic, the engine in her car broke down. With no money to afford a repair, Cheryl has to borrow her parent’s vehicle to get to her various jobs.

On Dec. 21, Cheryl is having surgery on her foot. She’s forced to go under the knife during the school winter break, as she can’t afford to miss any work.

But in this tear-jerking clip, Cheryl thinks her boss has called her into work for an “emergency” shift.

Upon her arrival, however, she’s approached by a man with a microphone. After that, Cheryl was shaking as she walked down the hallway of the school…

What a heartwarming gift! What a heartwarming video.

Street dog guards abandoned baby – shows that dogs have a heart of gold

We’ve heard many stories of humans saving animals from different dangerous situations. But sometimes the roles are reversed.

One day a woman heard muffled cries coming from somewhere in the vicinity of the parking lot just outside her home.

When she caught sight of a dog and her puppies – she also noticed something else by the dog’s side. A small creature that had two legs rather than four.

The maternal instincts of animals are strong. In addition, dogs are some of the most intelligent and loving animals we have by our side, and they can easily read if we are sad, angry, happy or just need some extra closeness.

They can also show great empathy and consideration – not just for their own species.

This is Way the street dog. She had just given birth to several small puppies. But for a dog living on the street it isn’t so easy being a mom. Food is scarce, and both other street dogs and humans alike go out of their way to do harm to the little ones.

Dog with a heart of gold

But even though Way is a street dog, she proves that dogs have a lot of empathy – not just for their own puppies.

It was the middle of winter when Alejandra Griffa, who lived nearby, heard muffled cries outside her window. She went outside to investigate – and when Alejandra reached the street dog, she saw something shocking.

A tiny human baby

Huddled close to Way and her puppies was a one month old baby. The baby’s 33-year-old mom had left her to die out in the winter cold – but Way was determined to stop that happening.

The homeless dog took on the tiny baby like a real mamma and held her tight against the winter cold, to keep the little one as warm as possible.

Alejandra picked up the baby and took her straight to the hospital where they were able to confirm that the baby would recover well.

Thank goodness Way was there like the good dog mamma she was and saved the tiny baby from certain death. We don’t know what happened to Way after her rescue – but I hope she found a loving home that treats her the same way she treated that helpless little baby.

Found the mom

Way’s amazing act really shows a dog’s empathy and good instincts.

After carrying out an investigation, the local authorities managed to find the baby’s mom who was suffering from severe depression. CNN reports that the mom has now sought pyschological help.

He raised a gorilla, 6 years later, it meets his wife – despite the warnings she walks too close

When multi-millionaire and wildlife conservationist Damian Aspinall introduced his new wife to two of his old friends, he didn’t think he would have to worry about them stealing her away from him. Especially since they’re gorillas!
Damian Aspinall raised two gorillas, Djalta and Ima, from the time they were little gorilla babies until they were 12-years-old. At that age, they were grown up and ready to be released into the jungle.

Six years later, it was time to visit them again — this time in their natural habitat. Damian also wanted to introduce his wife Victoria to his two old friends.

Damian Aspinall runs a foundation to protect wildlife and over the years he has seen and worked with hundreds of neglected, injured, and orphaned gorillas. He and other conservationists have successfully rehabilitated and returned many of those animals to the wild.

Through his work, he has also studied, learned from, and formed inseparable ties with the gorillas.

However, he was aware that his wife did not have the same history working with wild animals, and he was unsure how Djalta and Ima would react to a complete stranger.

Damian and his wife traveled into the dense jungle by way of a crocodile-infested river, and the couple finally reached the place where the gorillas had made their new home. As they got closer to seeing the now wild animals, they were aware that the gorillas may not willingly accept people into their territory.

Approaching despite warnings
There was a chance that the gorillas wouldn’t recognize Damian — it had been 6 years since they had seen him. Since gorillas are incredibly strong and can be aggressive, they would have to be approached cautiously.

But, to everyone’s delight, the amazing creatures welcomed him back with open arms.

But what about Damian’s wife?

Watch the video to see them meet for the first time … I won’t spoil it, but I’ll say this: It’s a meeting that no one will ever forget!

I think we can confidently say that Ima and Djalta “approved” of Damian’s new wife — so much that they wanted to keep her for themselves!

Many animals can recognize the people that have loved and cared for them.

Some believe that it only applies to pets, like dogs and cats – but this video shows us that the ties can be incredibly strong between wild animals and their caretakers.

Dog “runs away” from home every day after owner’s death: One day, son follows him

Unfortunately, I know how devastating the grief after a pet dies can be.

When you’ve spent so much time together it’s natural to mourn, almost the same way as if a human family member had died.

And of course it works the other way too, when a dog loses their beloved owner.

Dog Cesur lost his owner in January 2017. After being loyal companions for two years, 79 year old Mehmet Ilhan.

The loyal dog was completely heartbroken. Mehmet had died in hospital near their home in Bursa, Turkey. He had been paralysed for many years after a serious illness.

“Because of my father’s paralysis, they had a different kind of connection. When my father was in the hospital during his last days, Cesur stopped eating,” son Ali tells The Dodo.

When Mehmet’s body was brought home from the hospital, his loyal dog sat by his side the whole time, refusing to move.

Cesur even led the way during the funeral procession on the way to the graveyard.

At the funeral, Cesar sat by the casket with his head bowed throughout the whole burial.

“Nobody could touch him until my father was taken to the grave and was buried,” Ali says.

Cesur also kept watch when his owner was lowered into the ground.

After his owner’s death, Cesur lived with Ali, but it was obvious that the dog still missed his beloved owner.

After a few weeks, Ali heard that Cesur ran away from the house every day while Ali was at work.

One day he decided to stay home, to follow the dog and see where he was going.

Cesur had been going to the graveyard to see visit his owner’s grave every day. Ali even saw Cesur’s previous pawprints going to and from the grave.

“The people who work in the cemetery say the first thing he does in the morning is visit the grave of my father,” Ali explains.

Although no one knows if or when Cesur will recover from his grief, Ali will of course continue to take care of his dad’s dog.

“Cesur has always been a noble animal. He will live with me from now on,” Ali says.

If you’ve ever met anyone who thinks animals don’t have feelings, make sure to share this story so everyone knows that they do!
