*We always knew German Shepherds were smart. That’s why police officers use them. But even we were surprised to see exactly how smart this particular dog is. And over the course of two days, 6 million others have discovered it too.
So what could a dog possibly do to get so many human tongues-a-waggin’ you may ask?
How’s this: He uses the bathroom like a human.
He’s known as Baron Vom Herrn – but you can call him Baron. And on Thursday, April 16, footage of the dog was uploaded to Facebook by K-9 Instinct. Its a 26-second clip that shows the dog raising up and holding on to the top of the toilet with his paws on the tank cover for support while he uses the toilet like a man would. Continue reading →
Dario Ferrari won’t tell us exactly where in Italy’s Po River he caught this gigantic catfish, but he does say it took him and his companions about 40 minutes, a boatload of strength and tons of patience to reel it in.
But don’t worry, after taking a few photos and videos of his prize catch he released it back into the river!
Amazingly enough, Ferrari’s fish isn’t the world’s largest catfish, that fish was captured in 2010 and it weighed 298 pounds.
“I decided to give him the bath on this day because he came in with a couple [of] car oil stains on his back which he was unable to clean himself, nor would it have been healthy for him to lick the chemicals off,” she wrote in the video’s YouTube description.
Sometimes, little buddy, we just gotta do what we gotta do.

*OK, its actually a RABBIT, but I was doing my famous Bugs Bunny impression and showing my age in the process. But in this video you see how cute and cuddly a nearly 4-foot rabbit is; and what wonderful pets they make.
Take “Jeffrey” and his dad “Darrius” for instance. They will live (hopefully) until age eight or nine.

*You can bet this tourist got more than he was looking for when the lion he was looking at decided to give him a closer glimpse. Brendan Smith, a tourist from Australia, had landed in South Africa just over a day ago before coming on safari in Johannesburg; when an adult-sized lion jumped in his car through the window and went to town on his legs.
And not only is dude alive to tell the story, he actually has a sense of humor about it.
“No later than 36 hours after touching down in Africa, I find myself in hospital after a lion jumped through the car window and decided to go to town on my legs,” he wrote on Facebook. “Pretty full-on but am alive, with insurance coming to the party and an influx of curious Africans wanting to see ‘the lion man.’”
*On Tuesday morning sheriff’s deputies in the Louisiana parish of Natchitoches got a call about a truck that was stuck on the side of the road. But when they arrived on the scene they didn’t see a truck hindging on its side wheels, what they saw instead was two elephants who were preventing the fall.
The truck’s driver, who is also an elephant trainer, had walked the elephants out of the cargo compartment and directed them to help prop up the vehicle, sheriff’s Captain Tony Moran said in an interview.
According to Moran, the deputies were “just astonished to see it,” and he called the rescue “very creative.”
The elephants leaned side-by-side, and pushed with their weight against the truck, the sheriff’s photos showed. Continue reading →
