Rescue puppies that have been abandoned, know a thing or two about being depressed and know a lot about dealing with pain. But this pup Lana hasn’t let any of that stop her from being one of the sweetest dogs on the planet.
Lana was rescued from the streets of Brazil when she was about 8 months old. But she remembers her life as a stray. And because of that, her caring side came out one chilly night, when she spotted this little guy along the road.
Her owner had just bought Lana a thicker blanket in order to keep her warm and cozy since the nights were becoming quite chilly. So she knew that after tucking Lana into bed, she would be perfectly fine in her doghouse out front.
But when they walked out the next morning, they were welcomed with a pretty spectacular surprise.
That night, while everyone was asleep, Lana had seen a stray dog coming near the house. And instead of just barking at him till he went away, Lana decided to drag out her new blanket, and share it with the stray, ensuring that both of them would be warm for the night.
“I thought, ‘How beautiful what she did for her friend’. My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!” Said owner, Suelen Schaumloeffel.
She couldn’t get over how nice her little dog is. This little baby reminded us that sometimes we can make a difference in someone’s life just by doing something small.
Since then, Suelen started leaving food and water for the stray. But unfortunately, he runs away every time she tries to get close. For right now, she is just keeping an eye on him to make sure he is okay, and at least being taken care of.
They hope to soon find him a home, but they know it’s going to take some time until the homeless pooch feels comfortable enough to even get semi close to her.
We hope that if he is lost, that this little fur baby will find his way back home soon, but for now, we are just happy that he is being taken care of!
Dogs are too funny, and these guys are a “trip”. I thought it was cats that usually “benefit” from the “funny stuff”, but something tells me these dogs have been into SOMETHING!“Dude…Pass the Milkbones…”Now if we only knew what’s in those Milkbones!
Here’s some surprising facts about what dog behaviors actually mean. The truth about “man’s best friend” may be funnier than you think!
1. Wagging their tails:
“Experts” say: Dogs wag their tails back and forth to show they’re happy. The truth: Your dog just farted and he’s trying to fan it away from you. What a courteous pup.
2. Showing their bellies to you:
“Experts” say: Dogs expose their bellies as a sign of submission, and might be asking for a belly rub! The truth: Your dog has been on the South Beach Diet for six weeks and wants you to acknowledge his weight loss. Say something encouraging!
3. Baring their front teeth:
“Experts” say: Curling lips baring front teeth is a dog’s way of smiling. The truth: Your dog is obsessed with Katy Perry (as most dogs are) and he’s hoping you’ll buy him a pair of grillz like the ones in Katy’s “Dark Horse” video. Tell your dog that Katy Perry is a poor role model and buy him an Ani DiFranco CD.
4. Running in their sleep:
“Experts” say: Dogs dream the same as people, and they have similar muscle movements when they dream. Maybe your dog is chasing a rabbit! The truth: Dogs are highly skilled at astral projection, but yours has strayed too far from his earthly body. It’s up to you to astrally project into the Ghost Realm, find your canine friend, and bring him home safely. Godspeed, and good luck. You’ll need it.
5. Staring at you dead in the eye:
“Experts” say: A direct, intense stare is a threat. It would be wise to back away slowly. The truth: Your dog just got LASIK and is hoping you’ll notice his lovely new 20/20 vision. Bring your face as close as possible to his so your compliments can be heard more easily.
6. Ears in different positions:
“Experts” say: Dogs position their ears in different directions depending on their mood. Up means alert, down means fearful, and back means aggressive. The truth: Dogs love fashion and it’s important to let your pup experiment with different earstyles. Get him a gift card to Claire’s at the mall so he can accessorize appropriately.
7. Tail between their legs:
“Experts” say: A tail between the legs means your dog is afraid, worried, and under stress. The truth: Your puppy is wearing his tail down because he woke up late and didn’t have time to style his tail into an updo. Don’t comment on it. Dogs are sensitive.
8. Play biting:
“Experts” say: Play biting is a normal part of dog behavior. Think of it as rough housing. The truth: Your dog plans to eat you soon, but wants to tenderize you first. Soon he’ll start seasoning you with thyme and saffron. Beware.
9. Eating dead gross rotten animal meat off the forest floor:
“Experts” say: Dogs are carnivores and it’s instinctual for them to eat meat. The truth: Dogs are actually strict vegans and only eat meat when experiencing severe anemia. If your dog eats a dead animal it means it’s time to shell out for some iron supplements.
10. Quizzically tilting their heads to one side:
“Experts” say: Dogs tilt their heads when something piques their interest and they want to hear better. The truth: Like Regan MacNeil in The Exorcist, your dog is possessed by the demon king Pazuzu, hence the contorting head. Hire a priest to perform an exorcism immediately.
11. Making “Puppydog Eyes” at you:
“Experts” say: Dogs are smarter than you think and know how to get what they want. “Puppydog eyes” is akin to begging—a ploy to get a treat or go for a walk. The truth: Your dog has been wearing its monthly contact lenses for too long and it’s starting to cause problems such as dilated pupils and watery eyes. Educate your canine friend on proper lens care.
12. Howling at the moon:
“Experts” say: Dogs howl to announce their presence to other canines. The moon association is most likely based on ancient myths. The truth: Your dog is a werewolf! Run!!! Eeeeeeeek!
(Unless he’s one of the hot werewolves from Teen Wolf, in which case congrats.)
13. Digging holes all over the damn place:
“Experts” say: Dogs dig to bury valuable items, like bones and toys. The truth: Dogs dig to bury valuable items, like gold and other precious metals. Your dog doesn’t trust banks, and why should he? With the way big banks are handling our money these days, I tell you what…
14. Growling at the mailman/delivery guy/basically anyone:
“Experts” say: Dogs bark at strangers because they’re territorial and protective. The truth: Your dog is so SUPER JAZZED for his new subscription to Better Homes and Gardens to arrive that he can barely contain himself!
15. Barking because they heard another dog bark:
“Experts” say: Dogs bark to communicate. They’re just saying hello to each other. The truth: All dogs are in gangs and when they bark, they’re warning each other to stay off one another’s turf. Don’t get caught in a dog gang turf war!
There once was a dog who lived across the street from a cat. Every day, three times a day for months, the dog would longingly peer into the window across the street just to see his beloved cat. It became somewhat of a habit until the cat owner decided to put potted plants on the windowsill her cat loved to sit on… and suddenly the dog couldn’t see his feline crush anymore. Their cute love story wouldn’t end here, however.
The dog spent a few days moping around the house until his owner realized why he was so sad. The woman taped a note on her neighbor’s window that will break your heart in the best way.
The note read:
This is going to seem ridiculous, but I thought you should know that my dog (who lives next door with me) is madly in love with your cat… and has been for probably 6 months! Three times a day, he puts his paws on our railing to look at him/her in your windowsill. Now that you have potted plants there, he is heartbroken… but keeps looking for your cat every time. Maybe your plants could switch to a different window??!
-From your neighbor and her adoring dog
Instead of ignoring the note, the cat owner responded in the absolute best way. She moved the potted plants and left a simple note of her own, “For True Love!”
We don’t know if the pets ended up together or not… but if we had to guess, we’d say they are walking around the block together right now, madly in love.
Does your dog stay by your bed and watch you the whole time while you are nursing a flu? This is its natural instinct to care for a sick or wounded family member, just as they would in the wild. A dog extends its love and care to its sick or injured owner by quietly and patiently watching over him/her. But make sure you hide any superficial wounds away from your dog! It might actually lick your wound as its form of first aid.
They Bring You Gifts
Last but not least, they bring you gifts….possibly from your flower garden though… but you just gotta love them! xoxo
