Dog Confronts Dolphin Who was Rude to His Human

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Stephen Messenger from thedodo.com)

Dogs have been shown to be especially friendly around dolphins they meet in the wild, almost as if they consider them kindred spirits who just happen to live in the ocean. But as magical as some of their interactions have been in the past, our canine companions do have a line their dolphin buddies dare not cross.

Don't mess with their humans.

A girl swimming off the coast of Galway, Ireland, recently had a rather unpleasant encounter with the region's most disgruntled locals. Dusty the dolphin, as she is sometimes called, has garnered a reputation in recent years for hanging out near popular beaches where she's known to occasionally ram into beachgoers.

Nobody is really sure why Dusty gets aggressive, but swimmers have been warned to keep their distance if they see her approaching. Apparently, this young lady didn't get the message.

Man Films Himself Throwing Cat at Wall, Gets Arrested

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Solon Kelleher from thedodo.com)

"I hate cats," reads the caption of a video showing a young cat being violently hurled at a wall, according to KWCH of Hutchinson, Kansas.

The video was sent out via social photo-sharing site, Snapchat, by the alleged abuser, a 28-year-old man from Wichita, Kansas, according to a Wichita Police Department (WPD) press conference held on Monday morning.

The short video reveals what must have been the most terrifying few seconds of this poor cat's young life. The video opens by showing the face of the distressed and helpless cat. The abuser seems to be holding the cat with one hand and filming with the other.

Then the cat is held out of frame as the abuser winds up in preparation to throw her, followed by a sudden thud. Immediately, we see the cat return to the video frame as she falls to the ground and scrambles away, meowing in what appears to be pain and torment.

Her hind legs appear to be functionless as she drags herself across the floor using only her front legs.

The video has since been removed from social media.

Orangutan Kisses Pregnant Woman's Belly

Dodo Circular

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

Animals are smart, intuitive creatures, and are usually pretty in tune to what you're trying to tell them. A family went to Colchester Zoo in the U.K. recently and tried to tell an orangutan named Rajang about the mom's pregnancy — and he seems to have understood perfectly.

Rajang kisses the glass window of the enclosure to try and smooch the mom's pregnant belly, possibly understanding very well that she has a baby growing in there. As adorable as this video is though, it's also kind of sad.

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.

Cat Takes on Alligator in Heart-Pounding Video

Dodo Circular

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

Cats don't like to take a lot of crap. If you ask them, they're the ones who rule the household, the backyard, the world, etc. Even something super scary and imposing — like say, an alligator — might not phase a cat. Cats are pretty badass.

In fact, we have have found the most badass cat of all in an incredible 2014 video. This guy wanders next to a swampy area where a whole bunch of alligators are just hanging out, and instead of keeping a safe distance ... he walks right up to one of the toothy animals.

People watching and filming immediately start freaking out, yelling things like, "Get the cat away," and "Oh no, the kitty!" Cat was not phased though. After all, everyone doubted Hercules at first, too.

6 Sleepy Pugs Wiggle Their Way Through Cutest Slumber Party Ever

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.

Mom Walks In On Her Rescue Dog Doing The Cutest Thing

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Anna Swartz from thedodo.com)

Kristen Rhynehart walked into her daughter Addison's room to check on her, only to find that Addison already had someone watching over her — their rescue dog, Raven.

Raven was all cozy in Addison's crib with her ... he had even tucked himself under the blanket!

"That moment you can't find your dog and you even go outside looking for him ... only to walk in the house and find him snuggled up in bed next to your toddler," Rhynehart wrote on YouTube.

"People that say 'money can't buy happiness' have never paid an adoption fee. 10 years ago I left a rescue with this little guy and I often wonder ... who rescued who? I gave him a home, but he gave me so, so much more."

YouTube/kristinnc2002

Addison is a pretty lucky little gal — she gets to grow up with an awesome dog looking out for her, not to mention a mom who knows how great rescue dogs are.
