Giving Thanks To Professional Dogs Hard At Work

It is often talked about how pets are a lot of work - you do so much for them and all you get in return is love, right? Wrong. Pets give back so much more than just love. For some people, they're their stability and support, for others, pets are one of the reasons they keep fighting day by day. 

Then, there are dogs who have made it their actual jobs to help people, and seeing everything that they do each and every day truly makes us think that we're the ones not doing enough for them. So, today, we're saying thank you to all of our doggo helpers and doggo heroes. And we're saying thank you to r/dogswithjobs, the subreddit that gives these amazing doggos love every single day!

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Instead I ended up adopting a 7 yr old chubby tub of love with sad eyes that were begging for a mommy. It was love at first sight. I can't wait to bring him home and spoil him silly.

What would you do if a hungry adorable doggo showed up on your doorstep one day? It isn't an easy decision, especially when you have other pets in the house. But this couple did the best they could do, slowly and gently getting closer to the dog, giving it treats and pets, taking it into their home, alongside their two dogs, and making sure that this pooch got the love that he deserved.

It took him a while to allow the humans to love him, but eventually, this cutie's tail started wagging, and he started playing with the two other dogs, and our hearts were filled with joy. Most importantly, this couple made sure to find the right forever home for this adorable doggo, and we're thankful for all their incredible work.

I don't know about you, but I understand why a huge, enormous puppy would be afraid of a tiny kitten. I mean, yes, you'd think it would make more sense for the opposite to be true, which it most times is, but I totally understand why the dog would be afraid of the kitten. Us, cat people, know exactly how fierce even the smallest kittens can be, and the dog can clearly sense that.

The German shepherd is excited, of course it is, but it is also adorably intimidated, barking and sniffing, and generally trying to asses the kitten's level of fierce. And though we can't explain why, we think these two will be BFFs in the future.

Artist Imagines Scenarios With And Without A Dog

Pets. How different our lives are when we have a loving animal with us. You may not even realize it, but little things in your life are altered thanks to your adorable companion. One artist decided to explore what life would be like without a dog, and the exact same scenario with a dog. To take in the pup or say, "no, thank you," that is the question and will lead this character down two different timelines. The result? It's as clear as night and day.

The talented artist behind these powerful illustrations is Ademar Vieira. Ademar Vieira is a journalist, screenwriter, and illustrator. He works in an animation studio in Brazil and since 2018, he produces comic books in partnership with other illustrators and alone. In 2020, his comic strips, which talk about social, environmental, and personal issues, went viral in Latin America and other parts of the world.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and these illustrations convey those thousand words. 

Follow Ademar Vieira on Instagram for more incredible and thought-provoking art!

This is the story of the tiniest, most adorable puppy who was abandoned and found in a cat colony. 

There's is no way to know how long the puppy was in the cat colony for before he was found by the people who come and feed the cats who are left there. It could have been a couple hours before the lucky discovery, and it could have been days. Regardless, the cats were calm around him and practically acted as adoptive parents until the puppy was found. 

Luckily, the puppy was discovered by good people who immediately took it to the vet to be taken care of. Even more luckily, the puppy was later adopted into his new forever home. A happy ending to a sad story of abandonment, and we are so happy.

Making friends is never easy, especially when you're an introvert, but even more especially when you're an introverted cat who is scared of many, many things. Still, Zoom the cat is the official proof that even if it's not easy, everyone can make friends.

At first, this youtuber tried to get the cat to settle and calm down, to get used to its new environment, but after a while of that not working, he decided to let Zoom go. Only lo and behold, Zoom returned to Walter's backyard, probably for food but maybe also because he knew he'd be taken care of and loved there. Not only that, but after a little while, Zoom has made a friend, and now they can be two little mischief makers together.

After three whole years apart, two wild horses get reunited, and it's the most heartwarming reunion you've ever seen. You might think that they wouldn't recognize each other after such a long time apart, but they did - instantly. 

The male horse got adopted first, and though he was well taken care of, he had a hard time getting used to the new place and making friends. As his owner explains, it was clear as day that something was missing for him, that he had missed his family. So, the amazing owner spent years looking for a female horse who was in a picture she had with the male horse, and after three years, she accidentally found her. 

All it took was for the male to hear the sound of the female to come running to her, and from there on, it was like these amazing horses were never separated at all.

Is there anything more heart-wrenchingly adorable than kittens opening their eyes for the first time? The innocence. The wholesomeness. The purity. Our hearts can barely handle it. And in this video, there are so many tiny squeaky adorable widdle kittens who are literally seeing the whole world for the first time, we might just completely melt.

12 days after their birth, almost all of the kittens finally have their little eyes open, and we are thrilled. The mom is purring, the kittens look calm, and they snuggle each other and mom for warmth, making our hearts warmer in turn.
