Too Cute: Two Goats Meet a Barn Cat

Meeting someone new can be exciting and scary, but baby goats Lady Bug and Princess Leia face the challenge head on! They can barely contain their excitement about meeting Moo the barn cat as they leap and bleat with joy. Moo, however, doesn't really seem to care either way, in true cat fashion. 

We could all use a little bit of that goat-y enthusiasm!

Too Cute: Baby Elephant Chases Birds

What's cuter than a baby elephant tripping over its trunk? A baby elephant tripping over its trunk AND chasing a flock of birds. This adorable moment was captured in the Kruger National Park in South Africa as a baby elephant chased a flock of swallows without a care in the world. 

Here are some adorable baby elephant facts!

  1. Elephants have the longest gestation period, up to 22 months, and can weigh up to 200 pounds at birth!
  2. Baby elephants take time to figure out their trunks and have been known to suck on them, like a baby human sucks their thumb.
  3. Elephants can only conceive a baby every four to five years.
  4. They're adorable.

Watch this adorable clip from Saving Africa's Giants where a baby elephant falls in love with Yao Ming, or at least with his long, grey-looking legs!

Earl the Grumpy Puppy is Giving Grumpy Cat a Run for Her Money

First, there was a Grumpy Cat, a.k.a. Tartar Sauce, a cat with a face so surly you couldn't help but love her. Now, there is Grumpy Dog, a five-month old puggle named Earl who is here to claim his place as grumpiest(-looking) dog.

But he isn't actually mad! His irritated expression is caused by his underbite and adorable wrinkles. Plus, he is a second-generation puggle, meaning both of his parents were mixed breeds. Despite his perpetual pout, Earl's owner, Derek Bloomfield, says he is a very laid-back pup and loves to cuddle.

Not many grown men play hide-and-go-seek, but when your best friend is a curious little kitten, the game is hard to resist.

Round 1: Man seeks kitten. Kitten does a pretty bad job hiding.

Round 2: Kitten seeks man. Kitten not expecting to find man so quickly.

Brave Dog Who Lost His Eyes Will Never Lose His Smile

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Caitlin Jill Anders from thedodo.com)

Humans can be so cruel to animals and yet, in the face of such cruelty, many animals still refuse to give up. A 5-year-old pit bull, brought to Animal Humane New Mexico, has had a practically unimaginable life — but he still keeps fighting, KRQE News New Mexico reported.

Raj (which means King), was brought in to the shelter by a woman who lived near him and witnessed his harsh beginnings, Animal Humane New Mexico wrote in a Facebook status. Raj belonged to a family with two other dogs, all of which were kept chained outside at all times.

Raj lost an eye while in that home, due to unconfirmed trauma, and eventually he and his two dog siblings were poisoned. Raj was the only one who survived. After that, the family decided they no longer wanted him and gave him up to the neighbor woman.

Dog Immediately Recognizes the Mom She Hasn't Seen Since Puppyhood

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Anna Swartz from thedodo.com)

Harper hasn't seen her mom since she was adopted as a puppy, so when her human family brought her back for a reunion, they weren't sure how well she would remember the mama dog who raised her.

But as soon as the car pulls in, Harper is tugging at her leash. She definitely knows where she is.

And when Harper and her mom see each other it's just like they're mama and puppy again. Even though it's been months, they're all over each other.

Dogs don't need to make small talk — for them, it's straight to the loving!

Harper and her mom went on to have the happiest family playdate ever.

Lonely Little Duckling Finds an Unlikely Mother to Love Him

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Solon Kelleher from thedodo.com)

It's a heartwarming tale of a chicken who wanted a chick and a duck who narrowly escaped a cruel fate. 

Though the chicken seemed to have it all, she was a bit of an outcast among her flock, and what she really wanted was a child. 

She spent months nurturing rotten eggs in hopes of a baby chick. She even nurtured a chestnut when she mistook it for an egg.

Things looked hopeless for her.

Across town, this little duckling was fleeing from a factory farm. Somehow he managed to escape life there, where he would have been raised to become a piece of foie gras: a painful life for a little duckling. In most foie gras production, ducks are force-fed food so that their liver becomes large and diseased.

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Solon Kelleher from thedodo.com)

It's tough being a pug puppy: There are so many new things to learn, so many balls to chase and SO MANY naps to take.

A video posted to YouTube yesterday by ignoramusky shows six pugs lined up side by side for a cozy snooze fest — and it squeezes so much cuteness into 87 seconds that we can hardly take it.

Watch the sleeping pug puppies breath in and out.

Watch their tiny pug puppy limbs do a little shake and a hop.
