Dog Drags New Blanket Outside For A Very Unusual Reason

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!

Maine Coon Cats So Fluffy And Adorable You Can’t Resist

Maine coon cats are known to be one of the largest domestic breed of cats.  I think they are also one of the most beautiful breeds in the cat kingdom. 

 

Their Mysterious Origins

The breed originated in the US no doubt, but the truth of the Maine Coon’s origin remains a mystery to date. A few myths circled around, fantastic stories spread, like those that Maine Coon is an offspring of raccoon mixing with domestic cat. They’re also said to have been brought by the Vikings during their exploits, or that Marie Antoinette shipped them to America as part of an escape plan. The most probable of the origin stories is that a longhair cat, an ancestor to Maine Coon, was shipped to America by a certain captain Coon, who used her predatory skills to kill some mice on board.

The Gentle Giant

Despite their daunting size, Maine Coon is the cuddliest little thing ever! It’ll easily become your or your child’s best friend! Sometimes a little wary of strangers at first, but once you get to know each other better, trust me, they’re the most playful cats there are! Hence the nickname The Gentle Giant.

maine-coon-cat05

Water Fetish

If there’s one thing that the vast majority of cats are repelled by, it’s water. Not so with Maine Coon; not only does she appreciate an occasional dip, but also seems to manically enjoy water activities. Just look at her face prior to hitting the tub! And yeah, her water-resistant coat is also good for swimming.

maine-coon-cat07

A Hunter of Some Repute

Being all cute and cuddly, Maine Coon is also an exquisite mouser. Truly, their hunting skill is a stuff of legends.

maine-coon-cat10

The Fluffiest Cat There Is!

Indeed, Maine Coon’s long hair and bushy tail make her one of the fluffiest creatures that ever walked on four. Their big, well tufted paws are built to withstand the harsh New England climates.

maine-coon-cat02

Who’s A Big Boy!

Maine Coon, being one of the largest domesticated cat breed, can weigh on average anywhere between 10 and 25 pounds, though some have been known to exceed that weight.  They can also grow up to 40 inches in length!

maine-coon-cat04

They Eat Big

If you own this cat, then you know the drill; Maine Coon is a heavy eater. You’ll pay often visits to pet shops in order to indulge their voracious appetite.

maine-coon-cat08

They’ve Got The Brains

In  addition to their playful nature, Maine Coon are among the most intelligent cats out there. These little creatures can actually be trained for tricks. They also answer back your attention, and are known for performing some ludicrous antics on people.

maine-coon-cat06

The First Laureate

Winding our clocks back to 1895 New York, let’s visit the first American cat show.  Guess who was the winner there?

maine-coon-cat09

The purrfect companion.

Beside being such amazing creatures, they’re also skilled hunters and always in the mood for some cuddling. If, after seeing how amazing they look, you’re considering to get one, keep in mind one thing that their owners mostly complain about – they eat A LOT and their hair can be a troublesome task to deal with. Also, as any cat breed, they can sometimes be complete jerks and destroy half of your stuff while throwing a tantrum.

Pup and Kitten Think They Are Related

Buttons the Jack Russell was rejected by her mother and Kitty the kitten was abandoned and later found on the street.  Button and Kitty were put together and they immediately seemed to like each other. The employees of the animal shelter even suspect that the two think that they’re sisters.

Dog Is Heartbroken, So Owner Tapes A Note On Neighbour’s Window

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:

Dear Neighbor,

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.

Dogs Saying I Love You

We all know dogs love their humans, but have a look at how they actually express it.

Crotch Sniffing

dogsaffection3Ugh, this is an embarrassing one and how we wished our dogs can quit going around sniffing crotches. But before you start screaming at your dog, try to understand it. This behaviour is in fact a dog’s perculiar way of greeting. More importantly, apart from a hello, it allows the dog to understand and remember you through your scent.

Tail Wagging

dogsaffection8 Similar to a cat, a dog’s tail is a communication tool. In fact it is sometimes more accurate in translating its emotions than barking. Held at different positions, a dog’s wag could communicate excitement, fear, threat or submission. If your dog’s tail is held in a relaxed position and wagging all together with its entire butt, it means it is very happy to see you.

Following You Wherever You Go

dogsaffection6This is another behaviour that can get on your nerves, especially when your dog attempts to follow you to work! However, it is only a dog’s way to show his love, devotion and loyalty to you. Wherever you are, that is where your dog wants to be. Dogs are extreme social creatures and unlike humans, there is no need for solitude.

Leaning on You

dogsaffection1Whether you are sitting or standing, your dog is leaning on you and wouldn’t budge. You can’t move and you can’t get on with your daily routine. While you are wondering what they are up to, your dog has already got what they needed: your attention. Getting your attention and giving you their attention by leaning on you is their way of showing affection. Next time this happens, stop what you are doing and reciprocate with some love.

Smiling

dogsaffection4It is no surprise when you see something like a smile on your dog. Dogs do smile too! Research has found that dogs can also show and use facial expressions similar to how humans do. A dog’s smile is another way of showing his love and joy to his owner. Having said that, most of us are guilty of not recognizing our dog’s smile.

Face Licking

dogsaffection7 Warm, sticky, wet and stinky! We know this can get annoying but licking a person’s face is a love gesture from a dog. Dogs lick faces for a few reasons. Mainly, if your pet dog is licking your face, he is trying to groom you! Grooming is an intimate gesture only done after a strong connection is made between dogs (so now you know he sees you as one of his kind). On the other hand, if a stranger dog licks your face, it is simply trying to say that he is harmless and friendly.

Sleeping with You

Sheltie sleeping with her owner Similar to wild wolve packs, wild dogs curl up together to sleep in the night. Rather than sleeping alone in his designated corner, your dog prefer to snuggle right next to you in your bed. If you catch your dog sneaking onto your bed or falling asleep next to you in your couch, it implies that you are his family.

Taking Care of You When You are Sick

dogsaffection2Does 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

dogsaffection9Last but not least, they bring you gifts….possibly from your flower garden though… but you just gotta love them!  xoxo

Cat Got Your Tongue?

We’ve all had trouble with our animals, but I don’t think anyone can top this “Cat Got Your Tongue” story!  LOLOL

Calling in sick to work makes me uncomfortable. No matter how legitimate my excuse, I always get the feeling that my boss thinks I’m lying. On one recent occasion, I had a valid reason but lied anyway, because the truth was just too darned humiliating. I simply mentioned that I had sustained a head  injury, and I hoped I would feel up to coming in the next day. By then, I reasoned, I could think up a doozey to explain the bandage on the top of my head.

The accident occurred mainly because I had given in to my wife’s wishes to adopt a cute little kitty. Initially, the new acquisition was no problem. Then one morning, I was taking my shower after breakfast when I heard my wife, Deb, call out to me from the kitchen.

“Honey! The garbage disposal is dead again. Please come reset it.”

“You know where the button is,” I protested through the shower pitter-patter and steam. “Reset it yourself!”

“But I’m scared!” she persisted. “What if it starts going and sucks me in?” There was a meaningful pause and then, “C’mon, it’ll only take you a second.”

So out I came, dripping wet and buck naked, hoping that my silent outraged nudity would make a statement about how I perceived her behavior as extremely cowardly. Sighing loudly, I squatted down and stuck my head under the sink to find the button. It is the last action I remember performing.

It struck without warning, and without any respect to my circumstances. No, it wasn’t the hexed disposal, drawing me into its gnashing metal teeth. It was our new kitty, who discovered the fascinating dangling objects she spied hanging between my legs. She had been poised around the corner and  stalked me as I reached under the sink. And, at the precise moment when I was most vulnerable, she leapt at the toys I unwittingly offered and snagged them with her needle-like claws.

I lost all rational thought to control orderly bodily movements, blindly rising at a violent rate of speed, with the full weight of a kitten hanging from my masculine region. Wild animals are  sometimes faced with a “fight or flight” syndrome. Men, in this predicament, choose only the “flight” option. I know this from experience. I was fleeing straight up into the air when the sink  and cabinet bluntly and forcefully impeded my ascent. The impact knocked me out cold.

When I awoke, my wife and the paramedics stood over me. Now there are not many things in this life worse than finding oneself lying on the kitchen floor buck naked in front of a group of “been-there, done-that” paramedics. Even worse, having been fully briefed by my wife, the paramedics were all snorting loudly as they tried to conduct their work, all the while trying to suppress their hysterical laughter–and not succeeding.

Somehow I lived through it all. A few days later I finally made it back in to the office, where colleagues tried to coax an explanation out of me about my head injury. I kept silent, claiming it was too painful to talk about, which it was.

“What’s the matter?” They all asked, “Cat got your tongue?”
