Click through for some laughs courtesy of our fuzzy friends. via via via via A mother like no other Lisha, a Labrador, is world famous for her mothering skills even though she’s never birthed any pups of her own. The dog, who lives at Oudtshoorn’s Cango Wildlife Ranch in South Africa, has played surrogate mom to more than 30 animals, including cheetah and tiger cubs, potbelly pigs, a porcupine, a pygmy hippo, a weasel and a barn owl. Rob Hall, director of the wildlife refuge, says that Lisha domesticates the wild animals and serves as a bridge between them and humans. “They adjust more easily to her, and when they see that she trusts us, they are more at ease around us," he said. Hall and his wife, Nadine, said they noticed early on that regardless of the whether Lisha encountered a kitten or a baby hippo, she treated them all the same — like a child that needed a mother.

Doggies Before And After These are the pictures of the doggies when they were puppies and when they grew up. One thing is clear, all dogs are insanely cute when they are puppies. These are some really cute dog photos, just because you can see puppy photos and then adult dog photos. You must say, these are some really great dog news, so, we hope you are going to love it! Enjoy! High Speed Liquid and Bubble Photographs by Heinz Maier It never ceases to amaze me: just when I think I’ve seen every possible permutation of an artform or technique—be it figurative sculpture, stop motion animation, or in this case, high speed photography—somebody comes along and manages to do something radically different. German photographer Heinz Maier says that he began taking photographs less than a year ago in late 2010. He claims to not know what direction he’s heading in just yet, right now he’s experimenting with macro photography, mostly insects, animals, and these delicate high speed water droplets. Personally, I think he’s found a great direction. There are so many things happening here to make these photographs simply outstanding: the lighting, the colors, the occasional use of symmetry in the reflection of water, let alone the skill of knowing how to use the camera itself. It’s hard to believe these aren’t digital.
HELP!!!!! Itz No Wonder The World Has Fallen In Love With These Animals.. :) The captions are very clever.. :) ;-) Mum? Instant Dog Mom If you want to see a bunch of happy dogs, don’t miss The 10 Cutest Sleeping Dogs of the Week When a group of dog rescuers arrived at the market to show the dogs available for adoption, somebody had left 12 puppies on the street – 8 of them were approximately 5 weeks old. In shock, the rescuers didn’t know what to do. The group had recently canceled several adoption days at the market because of bad weather, so they were over their capacity with puppies still needing to be adopted out. Also, the abandoned puppies were so small that they needed to be fed every two hours, including at night.
Slideshow: Money Graffiti To be perfectly upfront, what we’re about to show you is not something we endorse. The legality of writing on U.S. currency isn’t clear-cut: according to Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 333 (18 U.S.C. §333), “whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill… with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.” The key term here is “intent to render” that bill to be reissued, which implies that it has to be taken out of circulation, and the bills we have included in this slideshow may very well be still exchanging hands. (Section 331 of the code, by the way, addresses the “mutilation” of coins, and as you can see here, the folks at the U.S. Mint have actually highlighted the word “fraudulently” in the text.)
