This Highway Rescue Of Two Dogs Will Have You On The Edge Of Your Seat!

Would you have stopped?

When drivers on California’s 210 Freeway spotted a German shepherd and a boxer sprinting in the road, they didn’t even hesitate. They stopped and jumped into action.

It took several attempts to grab the dogs off the busy highway, and this video captured some of the action.

This is unlike any rescue I’ve ever seen…

(via The Dodo)

Both dogs were saved and brought to a local animal shelter. What’s even more incredible is that the people who helped were just random passersby. One rescuer says of her decision to help, “I just had to stop and save them.”

When This Kitten Got Lonely, She Did The Cutest Thing To Get To Her Friend

As cute as that puppy is in the pet store window, there’s a sad truth behind that glass.

If they weren’t plucked from a terrible puppy mill, odds are, they weren’t raised in much better conditions either. When they make it to the pet store, they’re kept in tiny enclosures, very rarely getting to interact with other animals or humans.

But that doesn’t mean they won’t try their darndest to be around other fur friends. Take this one lonely kitten in a pet store in Taiwan.

When a puppy pal next door was presumably feeling down in the dumps, the cute kitten went to drastic measures to cheer him up.

Watch what happens next…

I’m so glad the little fuzzball made it to the puppy. He was clearly pumped to see her. I hope someone buys them together so they can make tons more beautiful memories.

You Go To The Gas Pump To Fill Up, Not Get Robbed Like These People Did…

We all do it: we’re pumping gas and we turn away from the car to look at our phone or maybe even go into the store to get snacks. But think about this — did you leave your car unlocked? Odds are, you may have, and that’s when these criminals strike.

Police are calling them sliders, and it’s easy to see why when you watch them sliding between cars and slipping away with people’s personal belongings and wallets!

The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening to you? Lock your car, bring your belongings with you when you go inside, or tuck them away where no one can see them.

Lesson learned: always remain alert — even during the most mundane of errands.

Cats And Dogs Can Be Best Friends…And Here’s The Adorable Proof

The tale is as old as time: dogs and cats just don’t get along. While that may be the “rule,” this adorable duo is definitely the exception to it.

When Cosmo, a golden retriever puppy, and his fluffy friend Afera, a Russian blue kitten, are anywhere near each other, they tumble, pounce, and just play around. Prepare yourself for adorable overload!

Turns out, they’re definitely not alone, either.

Some friends are more gentle…

Then there are the rowdier ones.

I have a dog, but I’m seriously considering getting a kitten after seeing these cute couples!

When He Came Home From The Dentist, This Guy Had The Strangest (Most Hilarious) Fear

It’s no secret that when we’re under the influence of strong pain medications, we can say some hilarious things. And unfortunately, we also know that there’s generally someone nearby with a camera recording the whole thing.

That’s exactly the case for this couple. When her husband came home from the dentist after getting a cavity removed, he just wanted to make sure one very important thing on his body wouldn’t fall off. Luckily, his wife was nearby to reassure him…

That tape is truly a lifesaver!

Jeez, can you imagine what horrors would have taken place had he not tucked it away under the covers??

She Survived A Tornado To Almost Not Make It Out Of The Wreckage. This Is Her Rescue.

The end of 2015 was rough for much of the middle of the country, where tornadoes ripped across countrysides, destroying homes and taking lives in some places. Rowlett, Texas, was one of those towns where an EF3-rated storm swept through, wrecking Michael Delgado’s home in its path.

Though his brother and grandmother were inside when the tornado hit, they were safely rescued from the rubble after it passed. When cleanup crews came to the scene days later, they heard whimpers and pulled the family’s yellow lab out. He was also alive and well.

It wasn’t until even later and right before they were about to leave the scene that rescuers heard another small cry for help…

Lucy, the family’s miniature pinscher, had survived in between wall studs and made one final cry for help. Thankfully, these brave rescuers saved the day yet again!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was affected by these terrible storms.

This Dad Asked His Little Kids What They Thought About Presidential Candidates

I remember the carefree days when I was a kid…but only vaguely.

I didn’t have to worry about politics, war, or really anything on the news other than those segments that featured cute newborn pandas. Life was good.

Whether or not you allow your kids to be more involved with current events, sometimes it’s hard to shield them from everything. And since children are basically like adorable sponges when it comes to absorbing information, you’re fighting an uphill battle when it comes to them remembering something they overheard.

When this dad asked his kids some questions about a certain Presidential candidate, their responses were kind of hilarious.

I do remember thinking everyone older than me at that age was 200, too.

Do you let your kids watch the news if they express an interest in it or do you try to shield them until they’re older?

This Cat Means Business When He Goes To The Bathroom Inside

I like to keep a clean home. Mostly it’s because if I don’t, my dog will tear apart any stray item.

While my pup doesn’t often venture into the restroom, my tidiness even extends into the bathroom. I don’t like toilet paper on the floor, I make sure to always wash my hands, etc.

Typically, I don’t think of pets as being particularly picky about how they go to the bathroom…after all, they’re usually outside, in dirt, and some even roll around in it after. Then again, there are always exceptions to the rule — and Viiru the cat is one of them.

Nothing to see here…just a cat using a toilet.

When Viiru is done, he makes sure to cover his scent with other odors…

Then it’s time for toilet paper. Correction: ALL the toilet paper.

Watch Viiru’s hilarious bathroom routine — the end is probably the best part!

Previously, I didn’t want a cat because I’d have to keep a litter box. Viiru has opened me up to a whole new pet option!

Paper Clip Hacks That’ll Make Your Life Just A Little Easier

Up until now, most of us have probably been under the impression that paper clips are only good for one thing — holding bunches of paper together. But thanks to DIY extraordinaire, CrazyRussianHacker, we know that this bit of knowledge is totally misguided. From serving as a key ring to holding cords together, our clips are great for tons of things!

I hate breaking my nails on regular key rings, so that paper clip version seems far more ideal!

Which trick will you try first?
