What would you do if you saw a massive dog soaring high above a wooden fence on your street? That’s exactly what these neighbors stumbled upon and the reason behind the leaping pup is absolutely hilarious!
The people were walking past their neighbor’s home when they saw an enormous Great Dane popping up above the six-foot wooden fence. At first, they thought the dog had some serious jumping skills, then they realized how it was leaping so high!
The smart Great Dane pup realized he could peek over the fence when he pounced on the family trampoline! So, using all of his weight, this hilarious dog jumped into the air over and over again!
Great Dane pups are awfully big even during the puppy stage. But despite his size, this guy is full of puppy spunk. He even appears delighted with his latest trick of spying on and greeting the neighbors.
According to PetWave, this type of excited behavior is totally normal for Great Danes in particular. The website explains that Great Danes can be as energetic as they are large, especially during the teenage period.”
“Young Danes are prone to ‘the zoomies’ – a term used to describe their demonstration of wild abandon and sheer glee that involves galloping, leaping, spinning and jumping on or over objects with an endearing expression of pure joy.”
So when this pup figured out that jumping on the trampoline was fun, there was no holding him back! Thankfully, the neighbors thought to record their bouncing doggy neighbor friend and decided to share it with the world. You have to admit that it’s hilarious.
Great Danes are truly a big, goofy and lovable breed, and this video is proof! Take a peek at the jumping dog that’s going viral. You’ll get a good laugh out of his antics, too.
We’ve seen silly pups in the past, but this Great Dane surely takes the cake.
The Kaikoura Wildlife Rescue in New Zealand opened in September 2017 for just such a purpose. Its mission is to treat and rehabilitate injured and ill native New Zealand birds.
The facility is operated by wildlife biologist Sabrina Luecht who specializes in endangered species. The work she does is completely voluntary and incredibly meaningful.
Apparently there have been many young seabirds struggling with starvation recently due to La Nina conditions. The majority of birds Sabrina has been caring for are shags, Hutton’s shearwaters, gulls, petrels, owls, kereru, kingfishers and blue penguins like the adorable one in the video below.
Sabrina cared for an injured blue penguin for six days. It had a noticeable head wound it had incurred from attempting to free itself from a net.
The bird was discovered trapped and injured by an individual who thankfully stopped to help it. The bird required pain relief medication, antibiotics, rehydration, special nutrition and rest.
Finally, the time came for the precious blue penguin to be returned to the water. Sabrina transported it to the ocean and walked out onto the beach with the rehabilitated bird.
She gingerly set it down on the damp sandy beach and it took a few tentative steps forward. She backed away, but the bird couldn’t bear to part with the person who brought it back to life.
As the waves crashed in front of it, the bird simply stared at Sabrina, unsure of what to do next. Discover what the blue penguin’s next steps are in the heartwarming video below.
That’s because the officer had his eyes set on doing so inside the empty courthouse for some time confessing, “The acoustics in here are awesome.”
Finally, after all this time of waiting the officer was finally getting his chance to sing his song inside. But this was no ordinary song. The officer picked out one that was very fitting for his surroundings and opted to sing the national anthem. Unbeknownst to pedestrians who see him solely as a cop, when Mike is off-duty he actually moonlights as a singer.
As Mike takes a deep breath he prepares to belt out his song – and when he does it is absolutely heavenly. He wasn’t kidding when he said the acoustics inside were perfect. The structure of the building carries out his voice in a way that gives it a beautiful and almost haunting sound.
Since the building is empty it truly carries out and vibrates throughout the entire building, almost giving it a slight echo. Officer Mike has the wonderful gift of voice and we’re so happy he decided to share it with everyone. Hear him for yourself in the video below.
Where his legs were chained, the metal was irritating his skin in a terrible way. When a veterinarian from Four Paws saw this horse and how depressed he had become, he knew he had to do something about it.
The veterinarian named Ovidiu Rosu was anxious to get out and help the horse who was once so independent. A horse like this has so much energy to run wild, that when he is chained up, he slowly becomes almost a different horse.
The freedom to gallop was gone until Ovidiu came to the rescue. As soon as he brought equipment to loosen the chains, he noticed something was wrong.
Underneath the chains, the horse’s skin was hurt just as he had suspected. Fortunately, since the horse had not been chained for an extended amount of time – the care that this veterinarian gave would soon cure the horse.
Although the horse allowed Ovidiu to help without causing any troubles, he went beyond that and showed his gratitude in the most incredible way. Seeing this horse change so dramatically in behavior from the time he was chained all the way to gaining freedom was a sight this man will always have in his memory.
This wild horse from the Danube delta was so thrilled to be free. It’s heartbreaking to think that there are other horses out there who must endure this type of pain.
The video below educates people on what is happening to other horses just like this one where “a common practice in parts of Romania is to join the front or hind legs of horses with chains.” Thanks to those willing to devote their time to help out, some of these horses are able to live happy lives once again.
Watch the way this horse rejoices over his newfound freedom in the video!
One such memory was recently caught on camera, and when you see the incredible footage you will understand what makes it so special! As the video begins, a tough man with tattoos is delighting the crowd with his original melody, but when a hooded stranger approaches everything changes.
The man in the black hoodie interrupts the pianist, making a request that leaves him utterly confused. He points to his mother in the crowd, then asks the piano player if he happens to know Mary Poppin’s famous song “Chim Chimney” which is mom’s favorite.
When he states that he doesn’t, the hooded stranger asks to cut in – but no one can believe what happens next. See the stunning turn of events for yourself in the video below – I certainly wasn’t expecting that!
While celebrities from all walks of Burt’s life came out with their own statements wishing him peace in Heaven, none were as moving as his longtime, on-again-off-again girlfriend, Sally Fields. After decades of silence regarding her feelings about Burt, Sally finally spoke out…
Immediately following Burt’s passing, Hollywood A-listers like Arnold Schwarzenegger shared their grief. He wrote:
“Burt Reynolds was one of my heroes. He was a trailblazer. He showed the way to transition from being an athlete to being the highest-paid actor, and he always inspired me. He also had a great sense of humor – check out his Tonight Show clips. My thoughts are with his family.”
Dolly Parton was another close friend and co-star to speak about his death. The heartbroken country music superstar posted a tribute on her Facebook page, saying:
“Oh, how sad I am today along with Burt‘s millions of fans around the world as we mourn one of our favorite leading men. I know we will always remember his funny laugh, that mischievous sparkle in his eyes, and his quirky sense of humor. You will always be my favorite sheriff. Rest in peace, my little buddy, and I will always love you.
Sylvester Stallone also shared his own statement:
“A sad day, my friend BURT REYNOLDS has passed away. I remember him back in 1979, he always reminded me that I should’ve cast him as Colonel Trautman in FIRST BLOOD, I said that’s impossible because you’re too expensive and too famous, and probably tougher than Rambo! He laughed. He had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed his company so much…
Even though dozens of socialities and celebrities were quick to share their own remarks on the subject, it was Sally Field’s words that really caught the world’s attention.
In a candid interview with Vanity Fair following a rough patch in his life involving addiction and bankruptcy, Burt admitted Sally was the love of his life. The pair met on the set in 1977 while filming their hit movie Smokey and the Bandit – and it wasn’t long until the two were dating seriously.
Sadly, things didn’t work out for the handsome couple, as they split in 1982. Burt told Vanity Fair that he blamed himself for the relationship’s downfall.
“I miss her terribly. Even now, it’s hard on me. I don’t know why I was so stupid. Men are like that, you know. You find the perfect person, and then you do everything you can to screw it up.”
Burt held onto his regret for more than 40 years – but he never knew Sally felt the same way. It wasn’t until his passing when Sally released a statement saying that he will live on in her heart forever.
“There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade away. They stay alive, even forty years later. My years with Burt never leave my mind. He will be in my history and my heart, for as long as I live. Rest, Buddy.”
Not all failed relationships have to harbor pain. Burt and Sally’s undying love for one another is proof that our past relationships teach us about ourselves, help us grow, and (if given the chance) can cultivate life-long friendships.
We know Burt is smiling down on his beloved Sally right now and will look over her for the rest of her life!
