Three Months After State-Wide Rescue Mission, Orphaned Baby Bat Released

Three months ago, in an event that puzzled wildlife carers, hundreds of bat pups were abandoned by their mothers at the Rockhampton Botanical Gardens. The number of bats that needed help was so massive, it overwhelmed local volunteers. It ended up taking three three groups from Brisbane and one from Townsville getting together to rescue all of these bats. 

Today, according to ABC News, "[m]ore than 70 baby black bats on the brink of starvation... are now being released into the wild after carer groups from across Queensland united in their rescue."

Read more of the story and check out pics of the adorable bats below.

Twelve Happy Pups Playing In The Snow (Gifs)

Do you remember those younger days where it would snow so bad that school would be closed? Yeah, us either. Being from a state where our seasonal disaster is fire, fire days weren't as fun. However, we'd always get so jealous of those who got a full day of snow and got to hang out with all their friends sledding down a hill or having a snowball fight. You know, classic holiday movie fun (without the fear of your home burning down). Those seem like the days to remember.

We also imagine that feeling is what dogs tend to feel when they go out into the snow! You can just see their excitement, their joy, it warms our frozen hearts. Even though we never personally got to experience an iconic snow day, these dogs living it to the fullest is enough for us.

This really is a heartfelt story! Meet Predator Defense, a national nonprofit advocacy organization funded primarily by member donations, their mission is to protect native predators. 

This is where the coyote cubs come in. Fice orphaned coyote pups who happened to all survive the summer without their parents is a truly heartwarming story. Predator defense visited the pups on multiple occasions to monitor their progress. This video includes footage of rare, haunting night-vision of these pups who move like ghostly spirits in the dark, 

In the description bio, Predator Defense discusses the importance of rescuing predators and coyotes, "Coyotes play a critical role in keeping a balance in the food chain.  They regulate smaller predator populations (e.g., mesopredators like foxes, opossums, and raccoons), which in turn allows mesopredators' smaller prey (e.g., bird species) to survive. Without this balance, many species are at risk. Currently, a war is being waged on coyotes and other vital native predators by "wildlife management" agencies.  Their approach threatens the balance of nature and harms innocent wildlife, pets, and humans in the process.

Dogs On Mushrooms: Wholesome Twitter Thread

Here's something we've never seen before - dogs on mushrooms. And, no, not those types of mushrooms. We actually mean dogs literally on mushrooms, standing on them as they protrude out the tree trunks. It's whimsical and magical and we're getting dog fairy vibes from it and loving it. 

Turns out, when Twitter user @lofidrew shared the images of pups on mushrooms, they weren't the only images of dogs gracefully standing upon some mushrooms! Other users shared similar images and then came the silly shenanigans. We didn't know we needed these images until right now and we're hoping you'll feel the same way afterward. 

Let's go mushroom hunting!

Pups Awoo'ing To Boost Serotonin

Be sure to have your sound on to fully experience this awwdorably magical moment - a pup's awoo! What is an 'awoo' you might be asking, and good question! An 'awoo' is a replacement for the word howling, the 'awoo' is the sound of a howl and therefore has been more commonly used to describe a dog's howling instead of simply saying, "Check out those wolves howling!"

Awoo's are simply the cutest, and watching a pup really get into an awoo is too much cute for us simpletons to handle. The awoo's are all different and we're head over heels in love with them all. Truly, we have no favorite when it comes to a pup's awoo. Get ready to feel all that warmth fluff instead of you because this is guaranteed to bring up those serotonin levels!

Insanely Awwdorable Teeny Tiny Teacup Puppies

They don't even look real! Teeny tiny animals are some of our most aww-worthy moments! And teeny tiny puppies are no exception to that aww-worthy title. These pups are so adorable and tiny, it's hard to believe they're even real, they look like plushies. 

The fact that they ARE real just makes them even cuter! We wouldn't mind being surrounded by such adorableness on a daily basis. And except now, while stress levels are at an all-level high, there's nothing quite like a load of puppies to help relieve all that anxiety. We just wish we could physically be with all these pups, but we'll take what we can get. 

Viewers are warned, cuteness overload is expected, as well as, heavy heart-melting.

Great Danes In Comparison To Normal Sized Things

Great Danes are so freakin' adorable because they don't realize just how big they are. They are huge with equally huge hearts and so they simply act as if they're small enough to sit on your lap. They aren't small enough and they won't fit, as hard as they try and boy, do they try! 

We have a great appreciation for these giant puppers, they are often the most gentle of dogs. Giant dogs do not understand their size just adds to their overall adorableness and their gentleness

A common misconception is that Great Danes are called that due to their size. In reality, they're called that because they're all great. 

Get yourself situated for these big ol' boofers!

Corgis Crossed With Other Dog Breeds (Twitter Thread)

Twitter user @soapachu brings up a really solid point, "a corgi crossed with any other breed just ends up looking like a corgi disguised as the other dog." And after seeing the proof below, there's just no denying the truth. 

Corgis crossed with other dog breeds do indeed just look like a corgi donning a costume. And they do it wonderfully. Our Spooktober continues with corgis disguised as other dog breeds, just in time for the Halloweenie feels! The best part? Each photo below is probably just the cutest thing we've ever witnessed. Corgis are already known for the cuteness, heck, all dogs in general just scream adorableness. But for each breed to have the miniature-ness of a corgi? We're melting.

We can feel them bursting into a million pieces and melting into the floor. That's how we feel whenever see a photo such as the fallery of puppies below.

They are just too good and we humans do not deserve them.
