There’s nothing worse than when your parents, friends and just about everyone else keeps asking when you and your bae are going to "have some babies."
Instead of shouting ‘when we’re ready!’ couple Abby Lee and Matt Kay decided to take a different approach to get their in-laws to stop asking when they were going to become a family of three.
They decided to do a newborn baby shoot – with their dog, Humphry, acting as the baby. In the hilarious pics, Matt and Abby can be seen doing the typical things we see in most newborn baby shoots with their curly-haired pup.
Georgia Bradley was just enoying a day on a remote beach in Greece while her boyfriend was at a nearby cafe. However, her vacation took a turn when two men she didn’t know approached her.
The 25-year-old said they started harassing her, and once she rejected their advances, they became aggressive.
“I decided to go for a walk along the beach, and found two Greek men who kept harassing me to go out for a drink. I kept telling them I didn’t want to. Then one of them grabbed me on the arm and I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was on my own and it was a very scary and difficult situation.”
Suddenly, a small black dog ran over and began barking at the men. The attackers ran off, and the dog followed Bradley back to her apartment.
It’s been hard for Mary and Roberto Westbrook’s three year-old son Luke to understand that the family dog will not be coming home.
At the age of 13, Moe the beagle passed away. One day, Luke asked his mom if he could write a letter to Moe. Doing so became a bit of a mother-and-son ritual. The usual message: “I miss you. Hope you’re having fun in doggie heaven.”
Over the course of three years, Jared Piper saw a dog chained up all day, every day in a backyard with no human interaction. In Phoenix, Arizona, summer temperatures reach 120 degrees – the dog was still left alone outside.
One day he decided he’s had enough of this cruelty, and told the dog’s owner he wasn’t leaving without her dog. This is what happened…
This is Kelsey. She was found on the side of the road in very bad condition.
Rosie the kitten was just 3 weeks old when she was found near the brink of death by a trio of sisters: Thi Bui, Thoa Bui, and Tram Bui.
Luckily, the sisters rescued the little kitty from the streets, but she was very weak and it wasn’t clear she would survive. That’s when a very special husky stepped in to save the day.
Meet Smiley, a Golden Retriever born without eyes and raised in a puppy mill. Despite being born blind, Smiley is so happy and motivated that he has now found a new purpose in life as a therapy dog for the mentally ill and disabled.
And almost 10 years later, the certified therapy dog continues to bring joy to every room and to those struggling to fight depression, illness or disability.
Dog trainer Joanne George, Smiley’s owner, had a veterinarian sew up the pup’s eyelids soon after she brought him home in 2004.
Charlie dog died of cancer 2 weeks ago. Scout kitty loved him more than anything.
The first night I brought her home at 5.5 weeks old, she couldn’t sleep unless she was nestled up to my doggy.
When Nicole Elliot saw a photo of a senior dog with terminal cancer on her local animal shelter’s Facebook page, she knew she had to do something.
The Georgia woman decided to not only provide a home for Chester the terrier, but also to make sure his final days would be the best ones of his life.
“Before I went and got him, I decided to do a bucket list,” she told ABC News.
Elliot adopted Chester on June 27 and learned that the senior dog had undergone surgery to remove some of his tumors, but more had turned up. The dog’s owners had surrendered him to a high-kill shelter, and Animal Ark Rescue took Chester in before he could be euthanized.
In addition to cancer, Chester is also tested positive for heartworm, and veterinarians aren’t sure how much time he has left.
But regardless of how many days or weeks remain, Elliot is determined that Chester enjoy them.
Since his adoption, Chester has been to parks, eaten hot dogs and gone on a shopping spree for toys and treats.
“There are so many people that say animals don’t have souls like humans, but I feel like anybody who met Chester would see he does have a soul,” she said. “I think all animals should have a chance to have a happy life.”
