They Had No Idea How Their Dog Kept Escaping, So They Set Up This Hidden Camera

For a pair of dog owners in Fort St. James, Canada, the mystery of how their adorable pup managed to get out of his crate was a constant source of discussion. Did one of them sneak into the garage and let him out? Could he have learned how to unlock the door? No one knew!

Instead of constantly wondering, they decided to set up a camera to catch the cutie in the act…this is pure genius, people!

This has to be one of the most unique ways we’ve ever seen a dog escape from captivity. I wonder if his gums hurt afterwards?

These Poor Dogs Are All Feeling A Bit Stoned After A Visit To The Vet.

Going to the doctor can be stressful for both humans and animals. That’s why sometimes doctors use certain treatments to relax their patients and make the procedures more enjoyable.

YouTube channel CHSupercuts has compiled a number of clips from various home videos filmed by dog owners who just brought their four-legged friends back home from the veterinarian. What all of these dogs have in common is that they are all still feeling the effects of anesthesia or sedating medications… and the results are hilarious. 

Poor pups!

It’s also important to note that no animals were harmed in the making of this video…

Except for the part that took them to the vet in the first place, of course!

When Two Loving Dogs Refused To Leave Their Dead Owner’s Side, Our Hearts Broke

When police were called to a remote location in Paraná, Brazil, to pick up the remains of a man who was murdered in his home, they had no idea what they’d find. That’s why they were blown away when they saw two dogs standing over his body. Even though the dogs were exhausted, they became visibly upset when the man’s body was loaded up and taken away.

Most heartbreakingly of all, they followed the vehicle for more than 10 miles until they couldn’t run anymore. The footage is so sad that we couldn’t bear to watch it more than once.

“The dogs seemed very loyal to the owner,” Carlos de Anjos told Globo News. “They followed us almost all the way until the exit to the city. The bigger dog was in front of our car, and the smaller was behind us. They were quite anxious.”

Anjos was so moved by the two dogs that he told the victim’s extended family about their loyalty. He even volunteered to take one of the dogs. Luckily, the victim’s neighbor agreed to look after the other. For more on this heartbreaking story, check out the video below:

O cachorro foi fiel ao dono até na morte. Isso mostra que não se deve abandonar nenhum animal. Essa demonstração de carinho me emocionou muito, por isso não posso deixá-lo sozinho”, disse o cinegrafista. “Me emocionei muito ao ver aquela cena, o cachorro correndo atrás do carro mostra a fidelidade e o amor do animal.

“This is a great lesson. The dog was loyal to the owner even in death,” Anjos said. “This shows that one should never abandon any animal.” We wholeheartedly agree, Anjos. There’s no form of loyalty stronger than the bond that’s shared between a dog and its favorite human.

When Her Little Dog Sees A Dolphin, She Does The Cutest, Most Unexpected Thing!

Even if you’re not a dog lover, you know that some pooches have Napoleon complexes. They think and act like they’re tough, macho beasts not to be messed with. They’re also often less than 10 pounds.

Well, Gracie here definitely thinks she’s bigger than she is, but not in a menacing way! When she sees a potential friend on a boat ride, she does what only makes sense to her…there’s just one problem. We’re not sure dolphins are as fond of dogs.

I can only imagine Gracie wants to be best friends with the majestic sea creature she’s just come across. I feel like there’s Disney potential in there somewhere!

These Dogs Knew Nothing But Pain Until Rescuers Gave Them A New Lease On Life

Living in total misery, two young pit bulls named Lois and Clark lived under a truck until fairly recently. Starving and in desperate need of medical attention, they weren’t going to last much longer in that state. That’s when a few volunteers from Hope for Paws heard about their situation and decided that enough was enough.

They struggled a bit at first, but after some coaxing, they were able to wrangle the terrified pups. When they started warming up to rescuers, the adorable pair revealed that they were actually big softies.

Two Golden Retrievers Kept Their Owner Alive For Two Days After She Fell.

They say dogs are a man’s best friend, but apparently, they are also our guardian angels.

A Florida woman suffered a near-fatal fall survived the ordeal thanks to her two golden retrievers, Higgins and Dodger. The 76-year-old broke her shoulder and bruised her head when she fell in her kitchen. The woman lives by herself and has Parkinson’s disease, so she could not get up on her own and drifted in and out of consciousness for two days.

As she lay there helplessly for two days, the dogs stayed with her, not having any access to water or food during that time. The two dogs kept her warm, and kept her as comfortable as they could. But according to the woman, the main thing they did for her was to let her know that she was not alone.

The woman was eventually found by a worried friend who had a spare key to the house.
