For the most part everyone unfortunately experiences bullying. And for those that don’t – consider yourself lucky because bullying can stay with you for years.
When it comes to growing up, bullies tend to come out and make their presence known in the time when one is just discovering who they are as a person. This can lead to confusion or self doubt about oneself which no one ever likes to feel. Not only that but being taunted and made fun of can have an effect on your psyche, which is especially vulnerable at a young age.
When a little girl in El Paso, Texas recently moved to a new school she was anxious and excited about the change. But upon arriving that excitement quickly turned to dread when she struggled to make new friends. The tiny blonde girl had been friendly to everyone but had just managed to make friends with one little boy in her class, who quickly became her best friend.
One day she found herself being bullied by a group of girls at her school. Upset and sad, she wanted to call her best friend to cheer her up. So she set out to call him. But what she didn’t expect was her best friend to tell his mom to drive him over to her house for a special surprise.
Unbeknownst to the little girl her best friend had a special surprise up his sleeve to make her feel better. So when she got a knock on her front door to come outside she found her bestie standing in front of his moms car. That’s when the little boy did something incredible.
With mom, Ruby Jimenez, looking on her young son blasts the song “Count On Me” by Bruno Mars and begins to serenade his best friend. The sight is absolutely heartwarming. As the little girl watches her best friend she is in awe of the length he’s gone through just to make her feel better.
But the best part of all happens at the end when the little boy finishes up his song. Their touching reaction is melting hearts all over the internet. It’s incredible what the heart of a child can do for others.
A female officer bends down to the “arrested” man to lip sync the lyrics… “I know this pain – why do lock yourself up in these chains?” Yep, it’s the classic song “Hold On” from Wilson Phillips! Now you’ve probably never considered how the lyrics could connect with a bad guy – but some of them actually work hilariously well together. Other officers start joining in, and soon it becomes clear who the Chynna, Carnie, and Wendy are!
This video doesn’t just revolve around the trio though, other officers from the Savannah Police Department get in on the fun too (including some horses).
On the department’s YouTube channel they even thanked the radio station Hot 98.3 and the Savannah Bananas for all their help with the project. So, if you’re ready for a comical and clever blast from the past, press play on the video below. It’s sure to brighten your day!
They also are zippity quick participants in dog racing. Megan the Lurcher is a speedy girl, but she happens to do something incredibly odd that’s drawing laughs from everyone around the world.
In the video below, Megan and her best buddy Molly, a smaller Jack Russell, are out and about on the farm. It’s a gorgeous sunny day and the two are taking a pleasant stroll down a grassy path alongside a field of tall crops. Molly starts biting the tall grass, then the two of them hear a whistle and they take off! As they cut through the tall grass, all you can see is the lurcher’s tail and nothing else.
All of a sudden, Megan does something so awesome! You just have to sit there and wait to watch Megan do her thing – she looks like a cross between a rabbit and kangaroo!
Megan is hilarious with her tail just wagging away. At one point, she pauses to find her buddy who is shorter and harder to see in the grass, then gets right back at her crazy antics. Check out Megan’s comical way of navigating the field full of tall grass in the video below.
Unfortunately, things got off to a rocky start with the first cub as it struggled to breathe when welcomed into the world. Thankfully, Kaitlyn’s motherly instincts kicked in and she did a few tiger-like tricks to get her baby’s lungs open. We’re so glad the team at Austrailia Zoo shared this heartwarming footage online for us to see…
Sadly, the Sumatran tiger is one of the most critically endangered animals. Recent figures estimate there are only 400-600 wild Sumatran tigers left in the world. That’s why conservationist programs (like carefully monitoring Kaitlyn’s birth to ensure success) take place. We can’t risk the Sumatran tiger going extinct like its cousins, the Bali and Javan tiger.
As a first-time mother, it’s even more important for the zookeepers to watch the birth of Kaitlyn’s cubs closely. They need to be ready to jump in at a moment’s notice if something goes wrong.
Thankfully, Kaitlyn acts like an old pro and begins licking the first cub immediately after he’s born. Licking stimulates the cub’s lungs, encouraging him to start breathing on his own. But, even as Kaitlyn licks her first cub, it gasps for air. She doesn’t give up!
The new mother vigorously cleans her newborn until he’s able to pull in a full breath of air. Take a peek at this incredible birth and Kaitlyn’s impressive instincts in the video below. She’s one proud mother!
Because of climate change, decreasing food sources, increasing pollution, and other threats, many species are edging toward extinction. Andean Condors are facing unintentional extermination as a result of eating the meat of downed predatorily animals that renders around the Catamarca region have poisoned. A number of those condors have been killed in the last few decades, but at least one has been saved.
And it was truly grateful for the help.
As the Dodo reports, Sayani was found in critical condition in 2012 after ingesting meat from a poisoned animal. Over the following 16 months, he was nursed back to health by rescuers at the Buenos Aires Zoo and Silvana Andrade’s animal rescue organization ANDA.
Eventually, Sayani once again had the strength to fly. He needs it, too. Andean condors are the largest raptors in the world, and though their wingspan is impressive, they’re much heavier than other avian species, which already makes it difficult for them to stay aloft.
Standing on a rock, surrounded by rescuers and supporters, few lacked faith that Sanyani would give it a flying chance. The sight of this bird as it spread its wings was awe-inspiring.
“The most beautiful and impressive [thing] is that he stops for a moment and calmly observes the immensity that belongs to him,” Andrade wrote. “He seems to revere freedom.”
Just as onlookers expected Sayani to take flight, he amazed them with one last gesture. Sayani folds up his wings, looks back at those who have helped him, and appears to wave goodbye.
“After a brief time of reflection and before taking flight, the majestic condor turns to the team that took care of him and the reporters as if to thank for the care, for having saved him,” Andrade wrote.
And like that, he was off. Sayani flapped his wings a few times and alit across the spectacular fog-covered valley.
This rescue was a success, and Sayani is truly an inspiration!

Loki and Snow are best buds and do everything together. They love to hike, lounge on the couch, and bark at the mailman. However, when it comes to tricks, things get a little dicey.
Loki, a Shiba Inu, performs a trick of patience and resistance. A treat is placed on top of his head. He has to hold it there until his mom gives him the cue. Loki is focused and has waited patiently. When the cue is given, he drops the treat. He goes for the treat, which has fallen on the floor, but it slides away.
Snow, a Siberian husky who has been watching his brother perform the trick, sees an opportunity and goes for it. When Loki drops the treat, Snow thinks, “mine.” He dives and retrieves the treat. He enjoys it without having to perform a trick.
Loki is a true gentleman and does not fight with Snow but looks longingly at his mother. She runs to the kitchen to retrieve another treat. All is fair in love, war, and when treats are involved.

It may be an old breed, but that doesn’t mean they hobble around and take naps. These dogs are always busy, looking for anything that can challenge them mentally. And Malamute puppies, even more so.
Of course, it’s not so hard for a pack of Malamute pups to find time in their schedules for cuteness.
Watch these gorgeous Alaskan malamute pups howl and serenade you in the video below! We just want to hug all of them!
The puppy arrived at Michigan Humane Society in need of a foster mom. A foster family in Michigan was taking care of a litter of kittens with their nursing mother and thought to try to place the tiny pup with them. The sweet cat took in the orphaned puppy as one of her own.
The tiny puppy cuddled with the kittens and with his new foster mom. His new family is teaching him how to socialize. This proves that dogs and cats can get along.
A mother’s love can come in so many different forms and it’s not always biologic. Thanks to Michigan Humane Society and this foster family, they were able to make this pup’s transition a lot less stressful. SO SWEET!
