A Stray Dog Climbed 23,000 Feet In The Himalayas

When a mountaineer and guide in the Himalayas saw a stray dog following his group, the last thing he expected was for the dog to continue climbing 23,000 feet into the steep mountains. But that's exactly what the street dog did. Here is her incredible story. For more interesting photos, check out these memes about black cats (and how they're not evil).

Polar Bear Cubs Leave Their Den For First Time To Play In Snow

Get ready for some of the most paw-dorable pictures you've ever seen. Brian Matthews captured these amazing, rare and beautiful pictures near Churchill, northern Canada of polar bear cubs leaving their den with their momma for the very first time to play around in the snow. The pictures clearly capture the nerves the cubs feel of leaving their den for the first time, gazing adoringly at their mom and staying close to her while exploring this beautiful new world. 

As The Irish Sun reports, Matthews said: "It was very humbling to be able to see something that very, very few people get to see. The cubs were really interested in the world in general, they were investigating and playing in the snow, smelling trees, looking around and generally getting their bearings."

He continued: "They seemed quite confident running about and playing in the snow, as long as they weren't too far from their mother. You can see in the photos of them all lying together how big these tiny cubs are going to grow up to be. It was just absolutely amazing to see the cubs playing in front of us, only about 50 metres away, and not at all fazed or spooked that we were there. It's heartening to see the positive side of polar bear conservation work."

Only after they calmed down a bit did the mother bear go and have a big ol' nap, her kiddos continuing to play around in the snow next to her. We hope we will get to see many, many more pictures of animals loving their natural habitats, and that this was the pawfect, smile-inducing start to your morning that you were hoping for.

Siberian Cat Enjoying His Roots For First Time In Windy Snow

You know how Siberian cats are some of the most magnificent, floofy cats to ever exist? That's right. Now, what would make such an already majestic cat even more majestic? We didn't know the answer either, we thought Siberian cats have reached peak magnificence, and yet, user CharlotteFTW on imgur has shown us otherwise when posting pictures of their Siberian cat enjoy snow for the first time. 

It's Sir Locksley, also known as The Lox or Locksdown, enjoying his natural habitat, and he has made the very best of it. And so has his owner, of course, by taking pictures capturing his magnificence. So, thank you CharlotteFTW, for taking a majestic floof and making it extra majestic.

There's something magical about seeing snowfall and trying to catch snowflakes. It's almost like a setting out of a movie, white, beautiful snow, and the only thing that could possibly make the sight any more magical is seeing a floofy cat amongst it, also trying to catch snowflakes. 

This gorgeous orange cat goes by the name Favre, and we're in love. We certainly hope that Favre is able to catch a snowflake in the near future, we have all the faith in the world that he will!

If we know anything about these adorable overgrown wolf goofballs is that when wolves love, they love hard. This heartwarming video captures just that. With the snow covering everything around these two wolves in The Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, the male cleans snow off his lovely mate, disregarding the fact that he himself is covered in snow too. 

Grooming her in this way not only strengthens their familial bond but it's also an intimate gesture that reaffirms their unique bond as mates. Their love helps us appreciate the love we have surrounding us a bit more too, and really, we can only hope to have as loving a relationship as theirs. 

Can't get enough of ICanHasCheezburger? Then you're in luck because we're now on Instagram!

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.

Brrr! Snow is turned up in lots of places these days! I mean, have you heard about what's going on in Texas and Chicago? At least if it's cold there's snow to enjoy! Everyone seems to love the snow, for a little while that is. Even some cats seem to sometimes enjoy the snow! Which is weird considering their strong dislike for all things wet and cold. 

Here's a little house panther that can't seem to get enough of that delicious white luff! The black cat goes absolutely wild in the snow and it's such a joy to watch! Who wouldn't want that sort of excitement upon seeing and playing in the snow? This cat is an inspiration to us all. If it's snowing in your area, take a lesson from this cat and go enjoy it!

This is so precious and quite the perfect snow day! Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, two giant pandas at the Smithsonian's national zoo took advantage of this wintery weather and went out to play in the snow! And from what we're seeing, looks like they had a lot of fun. Why go sledding down a snow-covered hill when you can simply slide down it on your back? 

These pandas seem to be really living in this moment and we can't help but smile at their playful interaction. We hope this video provides you with some smiles as well! Have a great day!

Animals Various Adorable And Silly Reactions To Snow

Snow. You can love it, you can hate it, you can be unsure about it, you can be fascinated about it, you can be scared of it. There are so many emotions you can feel about anything! And even though animals can't really talk to express their emotions about snow... their reactions to it tells us pretty much all we need to know. 

Such reactions are just universal truths. If you see a cat run away from something, you can tell they're scared. If you see a dog running through the fields and jumping into the lake, you know they're having a blast and seizing the day. There are just some things we can tell without any exchange of words happening. And just like that, we can understand each of these animal's reaction to snow. And they're all different and wonderful in each and every way.

This may be 2-weeks-old but it's definitely worthy enough to talk about 2-weeks-later! Popular Twitter account, Humor and Animals, tweeted this adorable and heartwarming video clip of a golden retriever taking a cat out on a sleigh ride through the snow! The cat, who was wearing a stylish sweater, didn't seem to mind the lift in the slightest! 

This video was originally shared on Christmas Eve and has already been viewed over 730k times! People just love interspecies friendship and we're right there with them! Some of the comments this video have received range from "This is the cutest thing I've ever seen" to this accurate gem of a comment, "Leave it to a cat to let a dog do all the work." So. Heckin. True.
