Florida Inmates Comfort Shelter Dogs On July 4th

We hope everyone is having a wonderful (and safe) 4th of July weekend! As many animal lovers already know, when it comes to the 4th of July celebrations, the loud bangs by the fireworks can absolutely terrify those poor pups. Well, one amazing county is doing their part for their dogs and their community. The Brevard County Sherrif's Office, Florida, had county jail inmates comforting dogs at the animal care center, during the 4th of July fireworks. 

How amazing is that?

This is so wonderful for both sides. According to the original post by the sheriff's office on Facebook, "What originally started as a suggestion by a number of our citizens turned into an amazing idea to help calm our homeless pets, so tomorrow night, for the second year in a row our Chain Gang and other work crews will be comforting the dogs at the Animal Care Center by reading to them, playing with them, and even feeding them treats during the peak hours of celebration on Independence Day."

The overall goal? Not only to calm those terrified dogs during the peak hours of fireworks but to help build and "instill a sense of purpose and compassion in the inmates that will hopefully aid them as they transition back into society once they have served their time."

Just a beautiful idea all around. Kudos to Brevard County Sheriff for taking on such a wonderful initiative! 

Unfortunately, there are no surfaced photos of the event as of yet but it's too lovely of a story not to share!

Tantrum Throwing Doggos (Mostly Huskies) (Vids)

Oh, the drama! If these were Doggo Awards for the best dramatic scene -- we would have quite the contenders! 

We love our fur babies but we all know just how dramatic they can be. However, one breed sort of takes the cake when it comes to theatrics and whining... any guesses? 

Yup. Huskies. We love them, who doesn't? But they are giant babies. They do, however, make for some really hilarious vids! 

Sound on for these wonderful performances!

All About The Birds And The Bees (Memes)

We're here to teach you all about the birds and the bees! With bird and bee memes, of course! 

Why, what were you thinking? 

We have a deep love for birb memes, this you probably already knew but what about some appreciation for our honey-makers of the world? We do not see a bunch of bee-related memes out there (besides the 'Bee Movie', which shouldn't exist), and that needs to change!

Otherwise, how will the next generation know all about the birds and bees if not through memes? Luckily, that's a thought for another time. We've got a beautiful blend of screaming birds and sweet, sweet stinging bees. Enjoy!

Wow, this is not only heroic but pretty bad*ss! 

When the Hurt family came across what they thought to be a dog floating in the water at Marsh-Miller Lake, Wisconsin, they discovered something a bit more unusual. 

Out in the water on a boat, the Hurt family noticed there was a bear in the lake, with a bucket stuck on its head. "I said, 'That ain't no dog. I think that's a bear,'" Tricia Hurt told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We got closer and I said, 'Yeah, that's a bear that got hungry and got its head stuck in a bucket.'"

Apparently, it was a young black bear who was struggling to breathe with a plastic cheese ball container around its head! 

"We honestly believe if we hadn't run into that bear, it wouldn't have made it to shore," Tricia Hurt said. "It was so disoriented, it didn't know where shore was and it was so tired." Brian Hurt commented saying he could hear the bear heavily breathing as the bucket filled with water. 

Luckily, he swam across the right people. The Hurt family ran a successful rescue mission! After circling the bear, Brian Hurt finally managed to grab the plastic container and yank it off. 

Finally free and able the bear, the bear swam away. Tricia Hurt filmed the whole experience and could be heard shouting, "Swim happy!," as the bear swam away. 

Thank you so much, Hurts Family! You guys are true heroes!
