Bear Cubs Rescued

This firefighter pulled over when he saw a box on the side of the road with what he thought were puppies in it. Turns out they were bear cubs!! They are all being cared for by professionals even though his daughters wanted to keep them!

Make Way for Duckling!

This may be a great example of what is known as patterning. If a baby animal interacts with a member of another species during a critical period (and it is different for each species), they pattern themselves after that species.

Clearly this baby duck is willing to follow this human anywhere--likely thinking that he is its mother! Too cute.

One Happy Elephant

From what I can gather, this baby elephant took a nice refreshing dip in the ocean in Phuket, Thailand before participating in a wedding ceremony. I think that is his trainer's voice in the background trying to get him back!

Why Did the Elephant Seal Cross the Road?

This massive elephant seal waddled out of the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday and decided to cross the road, in a pedestrian crosswalk. This all happened in the coastal city of Balneario Camboriu in Brazil and yes, the seal eventually made it safely across. Firefighters and police splashed and sprayed water on the seal to keep it hydrated as it stopped traffic for an hour!

Best of all, we'll never know why or what inspired this crossing!

Happy Feet (4)!

Happy pony! Happy day! Happy feet!

How can your dog be sent to IRELAND instead of PHOENIX?????? A complete disgrace but luckily the dog made it back home safe and sound.

Note to self: never try to confine kitties with a baby gate unless it goes all the way up to the ceiling!

Holy Seagull?

There are those who now see the seagull who perched himself atop the Vatican chimney Wednesday before the announcement of the new pope, as a harbinger of things to come. After all, Pope Francis I has chosen the name of the patron saint of animals.

As they say, the Lord works in mysterious ways.

Demanding Dog

I don't now what I love more, the couch draped with a sheet (been there...) or the demanding dog! It all feels very familiar.

43 Paints Dogs

Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5

Who knew? Apparently former president George W. Bush has a bit of talent when it comes to painting and one of his favorite subjects is dogs!! He spent a month taking intense lessons and now has moved on to landscapes. Seems like a nice hobby to fill his days...

Have your dogs every spied themselves in the mirror? Little Fiona is too cute trying to figure out who that other pup could be!

Warrior Canine Connection

These puppies, being trained for wounded warriors at Warrior Canine Connection, are the second litter of this organization to go live on a puppy cam. Trust me they are addictive to watch but more than that, they are being trained to help so many people in so many ways. Check out the website here.

This new puppy center that was recently dedicated was donated by Home Depot, whose CEO got hooked on the puppy cam and wanted to help.

Polar Bear Cub

I'm a sucker for polar bear cubs and this new one, born November 27 at the Buffalo Zoo made her public debut recently, although she is too small to go on public exhibit. The cub is being hand raised by her keepers and from the looks of things, everyone seems to be doing just fine! No name yet but you can follow her progress on Facebook.

Whoooo's In There?

Who's in there? Surprise! It's a yellow-eyed owl caught in the grille of an SUV and he survived a long trip!

Starling Acrobatics

Amazing acrobatics as flocks of starlings form clouds in their search for food and to serve as protection against hawks. The starlings, absent from Israel for years, have made their return and are best watched at dusk.

Houdini Horse

This horse is a master escape artist and he seems to be able to find food no matter where it is!! Put locks on those doors (and the freezer!)

Do not show this to my dogs!!!

Fetch Cam

If it doesn't make you dizzy, this is what a game of tennis ball fetch (even in the swimming pool) looks like to your retrieving dog.
Pretty cool.
