Animals And Their Stuffed Animal Doppelgangers

Dogs are a person's best friends, and we're theirs. But what happens when you aren't home and they get a little lonely? Well, you must get them a stuffed animal buddy. And not just for your dogs. All animals could use an extra tiny soft friend to cuddle with and care for, even hedgehogs and owls.


And to make them feel more familiar, get them a stuffed animal that looks just like them. Perhaps there will be some confusion at first, but they'll become best friends quickly. And for us, their doppelganger love will make for the most wholesome and adorable picture moments, just like the ones you're about to see right now.

Dogs Being The Biggest Drama Queens

We love dogs. Dogs are the absolute best. They're so cute and so weird and so funny and oh my god they are the biggest drama queens sometimes. That doesn't mean we love them any less of course. If anything, them being so adorably dramatic makes our hearts burst with even more love for them. 

Sometimes, them being drama queens will make us snort, other times, it'll just make us want to give them another treat. It's impossible to say 'no' to these puppy eyes, looking up at you with so much adoration and love, probably knowing just how much power they have over you. But, quite frankly, who would ever want to say no to a dramatic doggo (or any doggo ever)?

Man Drives 1200 Miles To Reunite With Lost Dog

Stories of lost pets are the most heartbreaking ones, but when these stories end happily - with a grown man's joyous tears no less - what was once heartbreaking turns to the most wholesome feel-good stories in the world. 

200 days ago, just over 6 months, a man named Pat lost his dog. As the Washington County, TN Animal Shelter Facebook post tells, he "searched and searched but couldn't find him." Blue - the adorable dog - was as good as gone in Pat's eyes, especially when Pat had to move to Texas for his work. "He thought he'd never see Blue again," the shelter says.

So, when suddenly a friend of Pat's sent him "a video of his dog playing ball in the shelter", we can only imagine Pat's joy. But what we don't need to do is imagine his joy when they finally reunited, since Pat drove 1200 miles from Texas to get his doggo, and the shelter caught it all on camera. Be prepared for tears of joy, because these pictures might just break your heart with how wholesome they are.

"This is why WE NEVER GIVE UP," the Facebook post says, and we couldn't agree more. Check out pictures and the video of their adorable reunion below, and seriously - prepare the tissues.

What would you do if a giant snapping turtle showed up in your backyard? Well, this family let it be, watching it through the windows, the kids really excited, naming her "Snippy". After a rough storm in the night, the father came out to check the damage and found what looked like little golf balls on his stairs. Turns out - Snippy left her eggs right there.

The family took care of the eggs, feeling a strong need to protect them and help nature. "It was like a Horton moment, you know?" the father laughs. The kids continued to be excited, and after the eggs hatched, they named every single one of the baby snapping turtles. It's so incredibly adorable - both the kids being so overjoyed and the baby turtles getting to not only live but being let go into the wild by the loving family.

Tumblr Explains Why Dog Owners Don't Get How Awesome Cats Are

Us cat lovers, who spend time and energy hanging out with cats whenever we cat, we understand cats. We also understand dogs (most of the time), knowledge about dogs is common. But dog lovers, who spend no time with cats, are often very confused by cats and think that cats are evil - which is the farthest thing away from truth!

This tumblr thread took it upon itself to explain to dog lovers that cats are not evil at all. And they did it in the cutest way possible, explaining just how big hearted cats are. Cats just don't show it the way dogs do, and that's part of what makes them special. Cats are not evil, they're just not dogs. That doesn't mean cat and dog lovers can't be best friends - cats and dogs can be best friends, so can we. 

tumblr thread about the differences between cats and dogs explaining that cats are not evil thumbnail includes a picture of a cat lying on its back with its belly exposed 'Text - Rolling and exposing belly- attacks you when touched Does not mean: Give belly rubs! - haha I tricked you! Actually means: I'm playful! If you reach for my belly l'll grab your arm and bite it because I think we're playfighting!'

Abducted Lemur Reunited With Its Family

They urged people to give any information that they could about the lemur, concerned about its wellbeing. Thankfully, after a few restless days, the lemur had been found and returned, hungry and a little disheveled but otherwise okay, getting to reunite with its family.

One of every pet owners' concerns is always their pet forgetting them when they go away for a long time. When you're a soldier, and the periods of time you spend away are very long, that fear gets amplified. 

We're used to seeing videos of dogs immediately recognizing their soldier owners when they get back from serving that leave us melting from joy. But in this video, for a long terrifying second, our heart almost plummets when we realize that the dog doesn't immediately recognize the soldier, only to be overwhelmed by a palpable feeling of relief when it does recognize her. 

It's a happy ending, and our hearts did indeed melt. The lesson learned from this video has been summed up perfectly by this one youtube commenter: "May take a min, but a best friend will never  forget."
