2-Year-Old Triplets Are Best Friends With Their Garbage Men

Every garbage day, 2-year-old triplets wait excitedly for their garbage collectors – Andrew Black, Rob Whitmore, and Chad Cover – to show up.

“The crew gets out of the truck and they high-five the babies and give fist bumps and we talk,” their mother, Martha Sugalski, told Buzzfeed. “They spend 10 to 15 minutes with us every Tuesday and Friday.”

Holden, Heaton and Wilder were just two months old when they started to notice the garbage truck in their Florida neighborhood. Their mom would always wave to the men on the truck, the driver would honk the horn in response and the babies would look up. Andrew, the driver, would wave at the babies. Soon enough he would get out for some high fives and fist bumps, along with his two co-workers. Now it’s a twice a week tradition for the three toddlers and three trash collectors to hang out a bit. Even when one of the men had to take time off due to an injury, he came by to say hello. “Every time I see them, they just bring me joy,” he says.

Tommy the cat is a local stray in the neighborhood who found a family he could call his own.

“It’s more like he adopted us, to be honest,” sympson2612 shared on reddit. “He started hanging around our deck/yard this past Summer, and eventually we started feeding him. Next thing we know we got him his shots, got him neutered, and now he owns every piece of furniture and every person in this house. I think that was his evil plan all along…. We may have made a terrible mistake. ;)”

They decided to take Tommy in and right away the children fell in love, especially the family’s young son.

Whenever Tommy is getting ready to take a nap during the day, the tyke makes sure to tuck him in. This is his way of telling Tommy that he doesn’t have to worry anymore about being on the streets and that he has a loving home forever.

6-Year-Old Boy with Autism Reads To Shelter Dogs To Help Them Find A Home

autistic boy reads to shelter dogs

The dogs at Carson Animal Shelter in Gardena, California have found comfort and companionship in 6-year-old Jacob Tumalan, who visits every Thursday after school to soothe the animals with his storytelling. Jacob, who has autism, sits on a mat before the cages and reads to the abandoned dogs, who grow calmer in his presence.

The weekly ritual began when Jacob’s aunt, an animal rescue worker, first brought him to visit the shelter six months ago and saw the special bond he formed with the four-legged, furry friends. Though his autism means he’s often uncomfortable around loud noises and hectic activity, he’s easily relaxed and focused while engaging with the pups, who also give him a sense of purpose.

Cala was a guard dog at a mechanic’s shop near San Jose, Costa Rica. The mechanic never took her to the vet when she got sick, nor did he feed her on a daily basis. She was malnourished to the point where she couldn’t stand on her own feet and when she sat down, the short chain around her neck kept her from putting her head on the floor. Cala’s health grew increasingly worse and she even started having trouble breathing. If help didn’t come soon, Cala was going to die.

In 2016, Charlie lost both of his eyes from glaucoma. His left eye was removed in 2016 and his right was taken out a year later.

His owners, Chelsea and Adam Stipe, decided to get a puppy who turned out to be a savior for Charlie.

As the two dogs became friends, Maverick began to notice that something was different about Charlie.

“When they would play, Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so (Maverick) would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime,” Chelsea said.

A man from Lincoln, Alabama, shared a wonderful story on Facebook after he and his friends noticed an elderly woman who was eating alone in a restaurant.

This is what Jamario Howard wrote.

“So tonight JaMychol Baker, Tae Knight and myself went out to eat at this place called Brads in Oxford, and after us sitting there a while waiting on our food I noticed an elderly woman sitting alone.

My exact thoughts was ‘dang I’d hate to have to eat alone’.

So after thinking about it a minute I walked over to her and asked if I could sit with her. She said yes and we talked for a minute and after a while of talking she told me she lost her husband and that tomorrow would have been their 60th anniversary.

After learning about how much heavy metal music soothes and comforted his son, Richard McDeid decided to take his son with cerebral palsy to a lot of heavy metal concerts. And when I say a lot, I mean more than 1,200 shows.

Richard’s son, Mason, has loved heavy metal music since he was a toddler. When Mason was a baby, his dad said in an interview, all he did was cry — until Richard put on a Metallica music video. Then, the crying stopped.

“Afterwards, it started happening in the car whenever Metallica was on,” Richard said in an interview. “He would calm down and relax. At first it was only Metallica and then grew to other bands.”
