Jet And Miri: A Love Story That Is All Wet

There are many odd animal pairings out there and we love them all. None are quite as unusual as Jet and Miri because they are often in over their heads. In a pool that is. Jet the dolphin and Miri the seal are BFFs at the Pet Porpoise Pool in Coff's Harbor, Australia. They were born in the marine park and were introduced to one another when they were just months old. It was love and first sight.

Orphaned Baby Rhino Finds Love With A Sheep

Back in May staffers from the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre in South Africa found a baby rhinoceros crying next to its mother that had been killed by poachers just for her horn. They wanted to give the baby another chance at life and so they took it back to their facility and named him Gerjie, or more commonly Little G. He didn't sleep at all that first night even though they brought Skaap the sheep in to help comfort him.

Dog Hitches Ride On Ambulance To Stay With Owner

Dogs are known for their loyalty to their humans and every now and then they go above and beyond to prove this trait. A beagle-mix named Buddy in Mason, Texas, took loyalty to a whole new level a few weeks ago when his owner was loaded into an ambulance to be taken to the hospital. Part way through the trip it was discovered that Buddy was riding on the back of the ambulance to stay with his human.

World Leaders Sharing Koalty Time Down Under At G20

In the midst all those news stories of blank stares and the resurrection of Cold War tensions between certain world leaders (not naming any names, Obama & Putin), Australians appear to know how to cut through the ice to warm up a party. At the G20 in Brisbane, the country’s Prime Minister and the summit’s host Tony Abbott generated some first hand excitement with his koala diplomacy.

Thula and Iris: A Match Made In Kitty Heaven!

It is a devastating thing to find out that your child is autistic and it is a wonderful blessing when an animal comes into your lives that helps to make your child's life just a little better. For Iris Grace Halmshaw, an amazing 4-year-old artist, this help came in the form of Thula, a Maine Coon cat, who has been able to help her connect with the world outside herself. Thula also helps Iris with her painting.

Dying Woman Visited By Two Of Her Horses

When Sheila Marsh, 77, was dying of cancer recently, she had one last wish -- to see her horses one more time. The staff at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, U.K. worked to arrange a visit for her from two of her horses. On November 3 she was wheeled out to the parking lot still in her bed for a special and very touching reunion with the beasts.

Squirrel Rescue Caught On Video!

Thomas Patterson of Oakdale, Ontario, Canada, was just out for a day of riverboarding on the water when he noticed a squirrel stranded on a rock in the middle of the river. Being an animal lover, the 22-year-old couldn't just leave the little rodent to its fate -- he had to intervene. He paddled over to the rock and tried to convince the hapless squirrel to jump onto his board.

This Naked Cockatoo Really Rocks

Cockatoos are a popular bird to have as a pet, though they are not the talkers that regular parrots are. They can still be genial pets, though they can be given to tearing out their feathers when faced with psychological challenges. That is what happened to Ophelia (a.k.a. King O) after his owner died. Despite his startling appearance he can really rock out.

Petting Zoo Donkey Makes An Ass Of Itself By Falling Into Open Manhole

Firefighters in the Swiss canton of Basel were recently called out to rescue an ass stuck in a manhole... not that there's anything wrong with that, unless you're the donkey in question.

Tricia And Sweety Prove That Love Is Blind

The life of a dairy cow on those large commercial dairy farms is not a happy one. It is certainly not the pastoral scene of cows gently grazing the grasses of pastures. It is life standing on concrete and being repeatedly impregnated and giving birth until it is time to head for the slaughterhouse. But sometimes someone steps in and creates a happy ending for a cow here and there.
