One of my favorite things in the world is when my dog has a dream. I love to watch his little paws move as his dream self chases a rabbit or runs an agility course or whatever it is that he’s got happening up in his brain. I guess I don’t think that much about other animals dreaming, but it definitely happens. The Dudley Zoo in Great Britain recently...

I consider myself to be really good at giving gifts, but it can be a huge source of stress for people. After all, you want to get something you know the other person is going to absolutely love. In relationships, the pressure can be stacked even higher to make your significant other’s day. Jordan Lebeau is one man who always went the extra mile with his gifts,...

When we travel with our pets, we want them to be as safe and comfortable as possible. It’s an awful, nerve-racking experience for both animals and humans, which is why we’re willing to pay top dollar to have our furry friends fly. Many airlines have special dedicated staff who take care of the animals that fly with them to ensure they’re alive and...

I’m prone to getting tons of mosquito bites, so after a certain point in the summer, I’m an itching machine. A Boston terrier named Riley, however, has me beat when it comes to efficiency. The pup recently made everyone laugh out loud when she put her face and neck on the carpet and started crawling around. It’s weird, but it looks so, so satisfying....

Sometimes when I think about everything that’s going on in the world, I get really down. Every time I check the news or social media, it seems like one more crazy thing has happened. That’s why I try to take care of myself and seek out positive things online while still staying informed. Kids are some of the most positive forces in the universe; they’re...

It’s not unusual for a mail carrier to come face-to-face with a dog or two along their daily route. But while most people try to confront the dog in an attempt to gain trust with the animal, one Colorado mailman waits for the animals to come to him before doing something he might soon regret. Jeff Kramer’s technique appears to be working out in his favor,...

For many, traveling by plane is usually tolerable at best and miserable at worst — but that’s just because they haven’t had the pleasure of sharing a flight with this kid. Last month, two-year-old Guy took a Southwest Airlines flight with his mom. As soon as he boarded the plane, he starting bringing smiles to all the passengers’ faces with...

When it comes to motherhood, humans and animals alike have strong feelings of love and pride for their babies. Just ask this sweet mom. The Gambian pouched rat had recently given birth, and she was so proud that she just had to show off her new baby to her favorite human. She was so enthusiastic about it, in fact, that she adorably dragged the person by the finger...

Rookie firefighter Emilio Sanchez might still be learning the ropes, but he’s certainly made a name for himself after footage of his heroic water rescue started circulating. Sanchez and his team responded to a call regarding a 12-year-old dog that was struggling to stay afloat in Biscayne Bay. Springing into action, Sanchez quickly strips off his clothes and...

One of the most common fears out there is arachnophobia. People tend to not like spiders, especially in their living space. I’m usually a fan of capture and release when possible, but when I saw what one couple had to go through in Australia, I couldn’t help but think they should just burn the whole house down. Lauren Ansell and her partner were cooking...
