Chained Up Outside For 5 Years, The Only Word This Dog Knew Was ‘No’

Marley lived a rough life that no dog should ever have to experience. His owners kept him chained up in the backyard and barely paid him any attention.

For food, he ate cheerios from a dirty pan if he was lucky, and all he had to drink was dirty water from a bucket that was filled with green algae.

When he got excited, his owners would hit him on the head. He didn’t even know his own name, and the only word he really knew was “no.” The only shelter he had was a dirty little wooden doghouse, and he had never felt the warmth of a real bed or even the indoors.

PETA fieldworkers did everything they could to try and gain possession of Marley to give him a better life. Finally after five years, his owners finally agreed to surrender him to PETA.

They rushed him to their shelter where they found out that aside from being severely malnourished, he was also infested with parasites. Not only was he starving for food, but he was also starving for attention. Poor Marley had never felt love in his whole life.

One of the PETA workers, Michael Moss, fell in love with Marley and decided to give him a loving forever home! Marley finally has a warm bed to sleep on and no longer has to worry about being stuck outside. He also has a new doggy sister, Kyah, who he loves to play with!

Marley enjoys playing in his new backyard and is getting spoiled with endless treats, toys and lots of cuddles! Despite everything that he had been through, he still has a positive attitude and is a very happy and friendly little pup!

This dog and mailman have a beautiful and rare friendship – it’s heartwarming!

It seemed like an unlikely friendship to many, but these two bonded almost instantly!
This story is about a puppy and a postman, who had proven that the myth of never becoming the best of friends to be untrue – just look at the video footage showcasing their beautiful relationship! The video was filmed by the dog’s surprised owner, Michael Collins.
Kyza, who is a German shepherd at merely 9 months old, was always judged via his appearance as a dangerous and unapproachable dog due to his breed stereotype and size.
But one person who refuses to judge Kyza by his look – and he is Collins’ local mailman who never makes his daily rounds without saying hello to Kyza! “Everyday whether or not we have mail, this mail man always stops to see my dog,” Collins happily remarked in a Facebook video.

Despite how others behave around and think of this German shepherd pup, their local mailman never fails to make an effort to get off his bike to give Kyza a pat and a hug!
Ever since Collins uploaded the video he shot of the two interacting, it has been viewed at least 1.5 million times and shared amongst 10,000 users! Collins ended his social media post with the following caption: “I’m not sure who to tag on Facebook for him to see this. But thanks man, keep up the good job and you’ve definitely got a friend waiting for ya!!”

Watch how the pair interact in the video below!

The internet loves this good dog for keeping his cat friend from getting into a brawl

This amazingly hilarious video is a proof that not all heroes wear capes, some of them are covered in fur as this loving doggie who won’t let his friend get into trouble.

It’s not uncommon that we find ourselves in situations where we need someone to remind us that our actions are not right, such as when we feel we are a force to be reckoned with and we want to get into fight after having a drink or two on a Saturday night. If we are lucky enough, our friends will jump in and say that it’s not worth it.

A video clip of a cat that was eager to get into a brawl appeared on Twitter and it’s super-funny. The cat can be seen approaching the ‘rival’ in a menacing manner making slow and steady moves with her ears back and her tail swishing. The rival is another big cat who is waiting for the enemy to take the first step, and just when everyone believes an intense cat fight is going to happen, there comes the dog and doesn’t let his friend get hurt.

The dog grabs the cat by its leash and drags it towards the opposite direction as though he says, “Nope, you’re not doing it!”

Everyone who got to see this lovely yet hilarious video agreed how Golden retrievers make the best of friends, even with the cats, and as one guy comments, “Goldens are too pure for this world.”

The video has gone viral the moment it was uploaded on the social media, and nearly 10 million people have seen it so far, and they all agree it’s one of the best clips that have recently popped up on the Internet.

We are lucky nobody got hurt, and we believe everyone deserves to have a friend like this goldie in their life.

2-week-old donkey is nowhere to be seen. Then farmer finds his hilarious hiding place and can’t stop laughing

Baby donkeys are the sweetest little creatures that can sleep pretty much anywhere. Elvis the donkey is no exception. From the moment he was born, Elvis, now just two weeks old, could be seen sleeping at the most awkward places. His owner found this really interesting and fun up until one morning when the cute baby was nowhere to be found.
The owner already checked all the spots where he thought Elvis could fall asleep but in vain. He checked each corner of the property twice and he started getting anxious because he though something bad might have happened to the baby donkey.
That’s when he decided to look around the house. What he saw next was so funny that he rushed to grab the camera and film the whole thing. Elvis found the perfect place to take a nap, the hammock placed at the front porch. His owner didn’t even think of waking him up, but started swinging the hammock to make his nap even more comfortable.
Take a look at the adorable baby and share this with your friends. You’ll certainly make their day.

A scared shelter dog can’t fall asleep until he’s tucked in every night is now looking for a new home

Getting tucked in every night is the only thing that gives Prince the pit bull comfort at this upstate New York animal shelter.
A shelter dog who insists on getting tucked in at night has people falling in love. Prince is a two-year-old Pit bull mix and has gone viral because of his special routine.
The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in New York says Prince came to them five months ago after he slipped his leash and ran away. Although they contacted the person who was supposedly looking after him, that person never came to claim him. The pup was terrified and curled up in the back of his kennel when he first arrived.

“He took a long time to warm up to us,” Nancy Haynes, director of behavior and enrichment at Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, told The Dodo. “Even when you approached his kennel, he would sit in the back and cower and shake. You would usually find him curled up in a ball at the back of his kennel.”

“We followed up, expecting that she would come to redeem him, but she never did,” Pearson said.

Pearson said they’re now looking to find Prince a new home, and spent the last several months training him to sit and drop a toy on command.

The staff gradually learned that Prince would settle down when he was tucked into bed at night and now it has become part of his daily routine.

“Prince gets a tuck-in from one of his favorite volunteers,” they shared, along with a sweet video.

“This sweet 2-year-old loves toys and has very good manners. He knows sit, down and paw, and is always willing to learn more for treats,” they wrote. “Like many royals, he wants to be the king of his castle, so no other pets for him.”

They added that he absolutely adores being snuggled. That’s not always the first impression potential adopters see when they’ve visited Prince because he tends to bark at strangers when they approach his kennel.

But the one-on-one attention he’s been getting and his nightly routine are making him far calmer and revealing his true temperament.
Shelter staff are hoping that people will see he’s actually a love bug and that he will be adopted soon.

Here’s more footage of Prince being tucked in.

Three Chihuahuas were abandoned on the streets to survive on their own

Hope For Paws never fails to amaze us with their rescue stories. Many stray and abandoned animals ended up getting a forever home because of the kind-hearted people from this animal rescue organization. They are always willing to answer the call when an animal of any kind is in a desperate need of help

Recently, the were alerted about three stray dogs who were staying at a restaurant parking lot. The concerned lady who was feeding the Chihuahuas knew they can no longer survive on the streets so she thought calling Hope for Paws was the best thing to do, and she did the right thing.

After Eldad offered some food, the male dog approached and the other two followed after him, and that’s when he realised two of the them were injured as a result of being shot at by a BB gun.

Once the dogs were in his vehicle, it was obvious they would be given all the medical assistance and care they need along with a nice, hot bath.

The three beauties, named Penny, Brooklyn, and Marty were all cleaned up, but unfortunately, just four days after they were taken off the streets, Penny died as a result of heart failure, but at least she got to spend her last days surrounded by people who showed her love and kindness.

Brooklyn and Marty are now foster dogs that are in search of furrever home. If you consider getting a dog, adopt, don’t shop.

The horse loved the reporter so much, the film crew canceled the interview as they couldn’t stop laughing

Horses are incredibly intelligent animals, and this playful stallion named Frankie is not exception.
He must know that the reporter is talking about him, because everytime he starts his sentence, Frankie nudges, nibbles and bops the reporter with its giant head! It’s impossible not to smile while this horse bugs the reporter for some affection

Thankfully, the reporter is a good sport and isn’t afraid of the large, outgoing animal. In fact, he tells the cameraman excitedly, “I want this footage!” His silly interaction with Frankie is something he’ll want to giggle over for years to come! Even when Frankie begins to nibble his ear, the reporter keeps calm and quickly moves out of the way!

Humans and animals are made to get along like Frankie and this patient reporters – so it’s heartwarming to see an interaction between the two go so well! Watch Frankie playfully pester this reporter for yourself in the hilarious video below!

Doctor gasps seconds after delivering twins, looking down we see why!

Having a baby is exciting and stressful, but having twins is even more so, in fact, its one of the most exciting experiences to go through! It comes with its own challenges and sometimes serious complications with mom or baby

Giving birth takes its toll in the body, one mom got the surprise of her life when it was time to give birth, even the doctors were in awe!

Around 10-15% of pregnancies are estimated to start with twins but, sadly, end up with only one baby. It’s called the “vanishing twin” syndrome, many mothers never find out even. It is more common to need extra care as a mother of twins though, more observations, and many things can go wrong too.

Sara Thistlewaite, a math teacher from Ohio decided it was time to start a family of her own with her husband. They were excited for the arrival of their tiny babies, identical twins, they had many many questions!

As it happens the twins were having a really rather rare set of twins, they were identical but monoamniotic twins, which means that they shared the same anionic sac inside the mom’s womb. That was a 1 in 10,000 chance that they had babies like this, straight away, they knew they were special!

….they didn’t expect a delivery as special as the pregnancy though!

Sarah spent over two months in the hospital due to her rare pregnancy, every single person concerned was interested in the rare pregnancy, she began to feel like she was under a microscope. But what she did not know was that it was about to get worse…

The couple, early on, knew that Sarah was set to have a C-section because the babies were completely together, right next to each other. The doctors thought said that it was a routine procedure and said that everything would be just fine.

The Doctors gaped in shock though, it was really apparent that what they were seeing was unusual…

Sara had a screen that covered un what was happening and what the doctors were doing. She just wanted to hear her baby cry, it would indicate normal breathing and a successful birth had happened. But instead, she just heard noises of shock as the babies were taken from her womb.

The Doctors could not separate the babies to pull them out one by one so they took them out together, entwined into one. At first, they were not sure that the babies were OK at first, but when they looked closer they then realized what was really happening, the room then fell silent…

Her heart felt like it was going to beat out of her chest, she was impatient and demanded to see her babies now! With what they saw it was really obvious that the two already share a special bond.

The two babies came into this world holding hands!! When the doctor’s realized it along with the nurses they all felt a special touching moment. Everyone began to cry in joy and happiness, this really was one in a million baby birth!!

Thankfully there was somebody on hand to take photos of the babies and capture the moment forever in a picture, everyone wanted to know more, everyone was so touched, how special it really was.

The story about the coupe and their babies was featured in newspapers and magazines alike, nobody could get enough of the story and how it happened and the moments before and after the birth, plus of course the lovely photo of the babies holding hands!

The birth and indeed the whole pregnancy was a little scary, to say the least, but both babies came out healthy and with all their fingers and toes. The special bond they share is very obvious right from the start. The called the babies Julian and Jenna.

The girls really love doing everything together, even wearing matching clothes, the couple really has a hard time separating them.

Sara said:

“Sometimes if my husband goes to the store, he’ll take one twin and I’ll keep the other. When that happens, they both get really upset and ask for each other. They’re definitely really close. They’re like two peas in a pod.”

Although difficult at times, their parents really love them both equally, every step of the way, bringing up twins is a challenge every day!

This funky gorilla gives a new meaning to the shower dance

I am sure you’ve heard of Zola the gorilla before. He is probably one of the most famous gorillas because of his amazing dancing skills and exhilarating performance behind-the-scenes of the Dallas Zoo

The zoo makes sure all the animals spend quality time enriching themselves by using different encouragement methods when they are out of the sight of the visitors. “Enrichment helps enhance the environment and lives of animals, like Zola, by providing them with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors. Enrichment can take many forms, but for this spunky great ape, it means playing and spinning in his favorite blue pool!”

That blue pool is all Zola needs in order to relax and get a thrill out of clapping his hands, splashing into the water, and dancing like nobody is watching. Once he touches the water he goes into full Flashdance, or better said Splashdance mode letting the water splash all over his body.

Twirling into the pool during the hot summer days is the best way to recharge the batteries and regain the energy. He is indeed having a blast and makes moves as though he is in his natural habitat. Zola is the ultimate break dancer that hits the ‘dance floor’ whenever there is water around, no matter if it’s the rain or puddles.

We can never get tired of watching Zola’s unique dancing performance and his youthful antics that will inevitably put a big smile on everyone’s face.

People are thrilled by what Zola does and we are happy someone got to put this on camera. One of the comments posted on the Dallas Zoo’s channel says, “This is my new “go to for a smile” video! Everybody should spin in a giant tub now and then. The world would be a happier place.” and another person adds, “That made my day better. I don’t recall the last time I had that much fun. The zoo must be doing something right to have such a happy gorilla.” and we totally agree.

We really hope there will be more videos of Zola dancing to come.

Trump administration predicts 7°F (4°C) global temperature rise by 2100 and hundred of species to go extinct

Buried in a 500-page environmental impact statement drafted last month, the White House projects that on its current trajectory, the Earth will warm by 4°C (7°F) by the end of the century if our consumption of fossil fuels is left unchecked. In its pages, the assessment not only accepts the prediction as inevitable but does not outline any steps to prevent it

Such an increase would cause coral reefs to dissolve as ocean acidity increases, extreme heat waves to tear across the globe, and coastal cities, such as Miami and Manhattan, to soon find parts underwater, as first reported by The Washington Post.

The report was drafted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to defend the White House’s decision to freeze federal fuel efficiency standards for light trucks and cars built after 2020 – if the temperature increase is inevitable, it reasons, what is the use of limiting greenhouse gas emissions?

“The amazing thing they’re saying is human activities are going to lead to this rise of carbon dioxide that is disastrous for the environment and society. And then they’re saying they’re not going to do anything about it,” Michael MacCracken, who served as a senior scientist at the US Global Change Research Program from 1993 to 2002, told The Washington Post.

The assessment cites historical evidence that global average temperatures rose more than 0.5°C (0.9°F) over the century following the 1880 birth of the industrial revolution. Under the current trajectory, the world can expect to see a continuing rise in global temperatures, maxing out at 4°C (7°F) by 2100.

Combating such an increase “would require substantial increases in technology innovation and adoption compared to today’s levels and would require the economy and the vehicle fleet to move away from the use of fossil fuels, which is not currently technologically feasible or economically feasible,” notes the new report.

During his time in office, President Trump has made it a point to go against Obama’s climate change policies, from pulling out of the Paris Agreement last year to showing support for the coal industry over other upcoming renewable energies, like solar and wind.
