Journey Of Malnourished And Sick Dog Getting Rescued By NASA Pilot

The story of Dobby the doggo is one that'll really make you feel like the year started off the right way. It showcases how every animal, no matter where and in what condition, deserves care and love and how important working as a team is. It took a lot of people to help Dobby, but it was more than worth it in the end

From being malnourished and sick into a forever home with an amazing NASA pilot dad who we know will do anything for her, Dobby is now a a happy pupper, and we are happy for her as well as incredibly thankful to everyone who helped her along the way.

Read her story and go through the rollercoaster that it is, and for more heartwarming dog stories, read about a dog who was mistreated for barking learning to bork again.

She was malnourished and had a pretty bad case of mange." -kdoremus105'

The story of this fawn and doggo is one of the most wholesome stories ever.

It started off sadly- with the fawn's mother getting run over. But luckily, a lady with a heart of gold saw the fawn and decided to help it, letting it into her home and feeding it. The fawn turned out to be one of the most affectionate and loving animals, running over to the lady when called, drinking from a bottle, and impatiently waiting for her by the door every morning to be let in.

With that lady lives a dog, one who was significantly bigger than the fawn at the time, and since the dog is affectionate and the fawn is as well, a wholesome friendship quickly bloomed between the fawn and the dog. They hang out together, the doggo jumps around, imitating the fawn, and it is just cuteness and adorableness all around.

Meowmoirs: Meeting A Dog (January 8, 2021)

Earnie is about to meet a dog face to face, and it is a shocking experience for him. The dog is just... so unintelligent in Earnie's eyes. I mean, he ate the couch once, how could Earnie think otherwise?

Meowmoirs: "I've named him Bork as that seems to be one of the only words he's capable of producing."

Read about Earnie's impression of the dog, and the reluctant love he develops for Bork. He may be big, and his tail is very dangerous, but he does give good ear licks.

Read the previous entry of Earnie experiencing catnip for the first time here!

You can hop back to the first entry about the day of adoption right here as well.

Redditors Share Photos Of Their Pet Perching On Their Shoulders

There's something overwhelming sweet about seeing an animal perched on a human's shoulder! You can feel the bond the animal and humans share from this simple placement and it simply warms our hearts.

We have no idea where this challenge stemmed but we're assuming someone on Reddit began the trend that spread like wildfire throughout the subreddit r/aww community! Redditors were challenging the community members with an image of them and an animal perched on their shoulder. What sort of animals on their shoulders? From rodents to reptiles to birds, to cats and dogs and even a horse! It's a lovely mish-mash of people and animals and it just makes us smile. 

We hope it leaves you smiling as well. If you have a photo of yourself with an animal on your shoulder, share it with us in the comments below!

For us, adoption day is always a happy day. We get to pick up our favorite little furball and take them to their new forever home where they'll be loved and cherished for the rest of their lives. But what does adoption look like through the eyes of the kitty itself, especially when it's an older kitty who has been in the shelter for a while, waiting for its new family? Allow Earnie - our resident senior cat - to show you. 

All of our dedicated readers have already heard of Meowmoirs, but for those of you who are new: Meowmoirs is a diary written by our resident senior cat who's name is Earnie. He goes through endless intense and world-changing adventures, writing about a new one every single week. Of course, his whole adventure starts with his adoption day. If you wanna read more of his thoughts about it, his reactions to the new home and his new family, read the full entry right here

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.

Welcoming And Taking Care Of Two Newborn Puppies With Cleft Lips

It's time to welcome two new puppies into the world!!! 

But these two puppies are not regular puppies. The two babies were both born with cleft lips, making them extra special in many different ways. The cuties will have a harder time than most going through their little doggo journeys. Especially now that they are so, so tiny, they will need some extra special love and care. 

Luckily, they found themselves in the hands of an amazing human. Working in a sanctuary and having taken care of at least one dog that we know of with a cleft lip, imgur user thevaiobandit101 knows what to do. The tiny pups will be tube fed for the next few weeks and will be a lot of work, but they are in good hands. 

Good luck to the puppies and to thevaiobandit101, we wish you an easy and amazing life!

Rescued Lost And Injured Bear Cub Will Be Released Into The Wild After Winter

An injured and lost bear cub was rescued this week by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The female cub was wondering around for days in the Electra Lake area, getting into the bird feeders. The poor cub had cut injuries on her paws. And though there's no way of knowing exactly what happened to her, it is assumed that she is one of the survivors from the fires who got lost and couldn't find her way back to her family. Regardless, we are happy to hear that the cub is now in good hands, is being taken care of by capable people, and will be released back into the wild once she'll be healed. 

As reported by The Journal, Joe Lewandowski, a CPW spokesman, said in an email to The Durango Herald: "It had been getting into bird feeders in the area... It's not unusual for bears to go on walkabouts occasionally during the winter," Lewandowski added. "But they usually find a way back to their dens. This one didn't."

According to an official Facebook post, wildlife officials decided that the best course of action for the cub is to be taken into the Frisco Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Center where the "staff will further evaluate and treat its injuries. The young bear will spend the rest of its' hibernation at the facility and be released back into the wild in the spring."

We are so happy to hear that the sweet cub is getting the help that she needs and that she will be released back into the wild. We wish her a quick and easy recovery and thank everyone involved in helping her! For more feel-good bear stories, read about a circus bear who lived in terrible conditions getting rescued and moved to a sanctuary right here.

When you think of a cat and a dog, normally you imagine that the dog is doing everything possible to get the cat's attention and hang out whole the cat is being a slow meanie and ignoring it. Well, welcome to opposite day - where the cat is needy and the dog cannot be bothered. 

It's hilarious and adorable at the same time. This is one of the most chill friendships between a cat and a dog that we've ever seen. It's so clear that these guys are best buddies and love and trust each other deeply. So, watching the cat climb all over the dog and knead it, trying to find the most comfortable spot on the doggo bed to snuggle while the dog is calmly letting it do its thing is just painfully cute

Japanese Inn Allows Sleepovers With Cats To Encourage Adoption

This is the greatest idea ever!

If you've always wanted a cat, and just wasn't sure about what living and sleeping with a cat would be like, this one Japanese Inn located in the hot spring town of Yugawara, Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan might be the answer to your questions! My Cat Yugawara, a lovely inn that has a really unique offering... the chance of having a sleepover trial with a potential adoptee! 

In Japan, inns are known as 'ryokans,' and you'll be able to distinguish a ryokan from any common inn, a ryokan has more a minimalist design, futons for sleeping on a mat on the floor, traditionally paper walls, and communal baths (in this case, hot springs as well). What truly sets this inn apart from others is the opportunity to help cats find a forever home. Potential cat owners, who are unsure about living with a cat due to various living conditions, can really have their eyes opened by booking a room with a cuddly and adorable feline. Some rooms at the inn can house up to five people, letting a whole family experience a day in the life of having a cat.
