French Bulldogs Can’t Contain Their Excitement When Dad Mentions The Dog Park

One dog owner by the name of Patrick has to be very careful that he doesn’t accidentally say “dog park” around his two adorable Frenchies.

Every time six-year-old Ganon and his two-year-old little brother, Loki, hear those words, they absolutely lose their minds with excitement. To demonstrate, Patrick decided to film them sitting calmly in the car before saying the two magic words.

Prepare to melt, people.

This story wouldn’t be complete without showing you what the pair does when they get to the park every day. (Spoiler alert: It’s adorable.)

It’s easy to tell that Patrick really loves these two little guys. And who could even blame him? Those faces are irresistible.

Watch The Heroic Rescue Of A Dog Stuck For 2 Nights In A 15-Foot Sinkhole

Skye, a seven-year-old golden retriever, seemingly disappeared into thin air when her owner let her off the leash during a snowstorm. After two days of nonstop searching, Skye’s family heard faint barking coming from inside of the Arboretum at Penn State. In that moment, they realized that the poor pup was trapped at the bottom of a 15-foot sinkhole!

When firefighters arrived on the scene, they were greeted by Skye staring back at them. After carefully lowering a ladder, Assistant Chief Dennis Harris made his way down to the terrified dog and hoisted her out. Look at how happy she was to run again!

Even after spending two whole days alone in that dark hole, she didn’t give up hope.

If You Thought Rats Were Incapable Of Looking Precious, You Thought Wrong

Rats are pretty high up there on my list of animals that I’d rather not hang out with.

In my mind, the only thing rats are good for is giving us some comic relief by eating pizza in subway stations. As strong as my opinions on rats are, however, this video might just change my mind. Move over, Pizza Rat. Spaghetti Rat is here to steal your adorable thunder.

If you thought that was cute, wait until you see what this guy and his rodent buddy just did.

was tasked with taking care of a coworker’s pet rat for a week, and while he was unsure of what to think at first, he came to love the little critter! He loved it so much, in fact, that he took to social media to make a case for keeping rats as pets.

Oh man…do I want a pet rat now? I think I do! This guy just changed my mind, which I thought was totally impossible before writing this.

This Dog Knows Who He Should And Should NOT Trust…So Smart!

My dog goes on high alert whenever anyone walks by the front door. Even if it’s someone she knows and loves…she just doesn’t trust anyone until they’re inside and she’s given them a thorough once-over.

It’s great for protection, but it can also be super annoying after awhile.

This dog, on the other hand, knows exactly who to trust — and precisely who he should never trust. Just watch as his dad tells him which treat is from which person…

What a smart pooch! I know my girl would walk straight up to anyone, even the dog catcher, if they had a tasty treat in their hands. She’s not trusting…unless they have food for her.

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.

Dogs really are awesome. I’ve heard countless stories of dogs keeping their owners going when they think they just can’t face another day. They are true life savers.

What This Doberman Decides To Do On The Slide Just Made My Day.

Taking your dogs to the park and playing with them as part of the family is a joy. After all, only kids and animals are able to embrace their joy and urge to play. A pair of Dobermans were having fun with their owners when they came across the slide. The first dog knew exactly what to do.

He slid down without any problem.

His sister, though, wasn’t too sure what to make of this “slide” thing.

She stood at the top, contemplating what to do…

Then, she decided just to do what came naturally. It was hilarious:

No dog or human was hurt during the filming of this video. Next time, though, only Gogo will play on the slide. His sister can stay on the ground with her feet firmly planted. OOPS. Share their funny day at the park by clicking on the button below.

This Guy’s Best Friend Is A Baby Kangaroo And Everything Is Good In The World

I’m sure we’ve all been jealous of how cute our friends’ pets are at some point.

Every time I hang out with my sister and she brings her tiny puppy along, I squeal with happiness and secretly plot to steal him for myself. Okay, I’m not actually planning on running away with my sister’s dog, but there is one baby animal that I’m extremely tempted to take.

10 Awesome Things You Can Do With All Those Carabiners You Have Sitting Around

If you’ve ever been to an event that sends you out the door with a goody bag, you’ve probably opened it to find a pen, a lanyard, and for whatever reason, a carabiner.

It’s Scientifically Impossible To Work When Your Pet Toucan Wants To Snuggle Instead

I’ve never been much of a bird fan, but even I’ll admit that a toucan’s adorable charm just can’t be denied. It could have something to do with the fact that my favorite breakfast cereal is hocked by a cartoon toucan, but if you ask me, they seem like the cuddliest birds of all.

And as this video shows, I’m not wrong! Watch as this toucan snuggles up with his favorite human, who is futilely trying to work. Internet, meet Ripley the Toucan. He’s about to become your favorite walking, squawking pal from the tropics!

Unlike other birds, toucans always look like they’re so soft and not covered in their own poop. I’m not sure how I’m going to get one, but I simply must have a toucan to call my own.
