Once upon a time there was a small Viszla puppy born as the runt of a championship litter. Because he was the runt he did not measure up to being champion material. He waited patiently as his litter mates all found good homes, but it didn't look as though his turn was coming. Then one day his human dad showed up, took him home, and named him Noble. It was an adoption made in heaven.

Similar to the recent release of the full-length movie, Boyhood, Robin Schwartz’ photobook Amelia & the Animals,
captures her daughter’s life from ages 3 to 14. However differing from
the movie, this child is filmed over time interacting with a series of
animals -- animals that most other children could only dream about
engaging with.

The next time you see yourself paling in comparison to those who’ve won the Nobel Peace Prize or you've failed to find
a cure for cancer, bear in mind in addition to being outdone by your
fellow man, you may also be outflanked by a few super animals. Some of
them have innate abilities that a lot of humans need college degrees to

This one has got to be filed under "strange but true." A few years ago a
goat was arrested on suspicion of attempted armed robbery after two men

case of mistaken identity.

Cats can have a way of getting into many a strange and unexpected situation. This is certainly true of one kitten in Russia that somehow managed to get itself stuck in the spring of a Toyota Land Cruiser. The poor creature traveled 50 miles before the driver, Vitaliy Bouranin, stopped for gas and noticed that his undercarriage was meowing.

Having a petting zoo for a fish is not the sort of thing you'd expect to
find anywhere, let alone as far inland as Urbana, Ohio. It may sound
strange (and it is) but true. A fish hatchery by the name of Freshwater
Farms has set up a tank where several endangered White Sturgeons and several other species are kept
for visitors to the hatchery to get to meet and get to know personally.

In the literal and figurative wake of the controversy that emerged at SeaWorld, and the subsequent film “Blackfish”
that documented it, it’s not surprising that the Clearwater Marine
Aquarium in Florida decided to bring down the curtain on using dolphins
for entertainment purposes.

It’s seems incredulous that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) -- long respected as a champion for the rights of animals -- could reverse its position on SeaWorld
within the same year. Yet that appears to be the case, much to the dismay
of animal lovers the world-over, including one multi-award winning
actress and singer.
