1. Tell me, is this not fate?
Recently, a wonderful girl, a shepherd dog named Gerda, began to live in our house. The baby is only a year old, and her owners have already abandoned her. They quickly left the city, collected all the valuables, and left the biggest treasure in the apartment without water and food.
The poor man was saved by volunteers who help such animals abandoned by their owners leave the country or another city.
My husband and I did not think for a long time; we immediately said we would take it ourselves. The dog is incredibly quick-witted, intelligent, affectionate, and kind, and how it guards the apartment! She serves us and tries to thank us for giving her shelter. Sometimes, animals seem to have much purer souls than humans. Yes, and love in them a hundred times more. — #Beastfast@pn6
2. Meeting the one that changed my life
They wanted to get a dog with a girl, rummaged through the sites of animal shelters, and thought through all the details (the first dog). On the same day, a friend asked me to help after work (to remove construction debris from the floor).
In the evening, as usual, I stood at the bus stop with a plan to call in to help and ignored how I got into the 101st bus (21 was needed). At that moment, I thought it was not scary since the bus would pass nearby, but I would have to walk a little to his house due to inattention. The bus was almost empty, and I sat in the back without any problems and turned on the music in my headphones.
When I had about 10 minutes left to go, some grandfather with a dog in his arms sat down next to me. I did not immediately pay attention to him, but we instantly liked each other when I noticed the dog. The man saw this, and we started talking; he said he had found a puppy abandoned somewhere near the clinic, hungry and frightened.
He said he was taking him home, but after a couple of days, he was leaving, did not know where to attach him, and offered to take him to me. At first, I refused and even told myself in my head that this was a bad idea and an impulsive act, that I had to go on business, and in general, I had never had a dog. Still, when the bus almost arrived at my stop, and the doors were already open, I agreed, and grandfather gave me this little puppy.
We have been together for almost three years, and during all this time, I have never regretted my decision on the bus. — Pikabu
3. "I didn't know I could love someone as much as my dog."
“I just happened to save a dog during COVID quarantine. And just at that time, she had just broken off from a long and abusive relationship and lived alone. In the end, saving my dog saved me. She was my roommate and my best friend. Her selfless love for me showed that I deserve happiness. And it was she who eventually brought me to my fiance ...
Now they are my joy and my light, and my world is a much better place because of them.” — ramire37
4. Hunting dogs are the best excuse for adventurous owners
Although I am not a hunter, I love hunting dog breeds. They are so funny! Constantly looking for adventure. And when you go for a walk with them, you become involved in these searches and wait for new finds with anticipation. I have a dachshund. And this walking sausage never ceases to amaze me. What we didn’t find with him: lost toys, bags forgotten by neighbors, and even a duck) It was both funny and strange: where does a live duck come from in our yard ?! She settled in our yard for a few days and became a local landmark) But she disappeared as suddenly as she appeared. Hope you're okay, duck! — #Beastfast@pn6
5. Dog - as a reason to become more disciplined
As a child, she was a terrible bitch. She could dress or undress for hours, being distracted by everything that could be distracted. When I turned 12, my parents gave me a dog, happiness knew no bounds, but I also had to take care of it. The dog is small; from the diaper, you need to retrain to the street. As a result, I learned to dress in 3 minutes a month. A couple of years passed, and I began to like the boy; I didn’t go outside without makeup. Another week - and I apply daytime light makeup in 2 minutes. It's been seven years. The dog is no longer alive, and I still dress and paint in 5 minutes. And just dreaming about a dog… — #Zveropost@pn6
6. “We got a puppy after we found out we were having fertility issues.”
“It was a bold decision, but I am very grateful to him. He is the best thing I have ever bought in my life. He brings us both so much joy and love. We both adore him, and he has changed our life and waistline for the better…” — lauraw4671f5ac2
7. The moment when a dog can marry people
I was afraid of dogs. I was bitten as a child, and the scar on my leg is still visible. One summer evening, my girlfriend and I were walking in the park. I hear someone shouting from behind: “Stop, Devil!” I turn and see a vast Golden Retriever dog running towards me. All life flashed before my eyes. The dog knocks me to the ground with its front paws and looks at me; I look at it; I don’t know what to do. Fortunately, the owner ran up and took her away. I have never experienced such fear in my life. When I came to my senses, the dog's owner apologized for a long time, and the dog himself looked modestly at me. We exchanged numbers and talked for a long time; it turned out that we have a lot in common; I'm getting married in a month. And the Golden Retriever turned out to be the cutest and kindest creature, only her nickname is frightening)) — #Zveropost@pn6
8. Friends can be supported, including dogs.
For three years, I have been living with two beautiful dogs: Joe, the little Spitz, and Jim, the German Shepherd. They are great friends; they started sleeping on the same pillow as puppies, got along well, and never quarreled. Joe and Jim love to play catch-up all over the house, but the Spitz's paws are too short of catching up with a shepherd dog quickly; because of this, he can get upset and sadly go to another room. But Jim's act shocked me - he began to succumb to it! The dog realized that the other dog was sad, so he began to run more slowly! I'm in complete shock at how they feel about each other! Yes, not every person can read emotions and moods so well! — #Beastfast@pn6
9. Fate as it is!
I work in a nursery. A family came to us with a 7-year-old girl. We walked for a long time, chose among small dogs, and then moved to the next building to look at the big puppies. And there was a husky. I think everyone knows how beautiful they are, especially their eyes. Suddenly, the girl squeaked and began to poke her finger into one of the enclosures, and she was jumping up and down with impatience! It turned out that this puppy had heterochromia (different colored eyes), just like the girl! This is how it happened by chance! They immediately decided that this puppy was waiting for them, and they had no right not to take it away. And, having quickly issued everything, they left, happy, home. This is why I love my job! — #Beastfast@pn6
10. "My boy saved me from myself."
“I was on the verge of a major breakdown, but one day he came to my house and taught me how to be myself again.” — goniamiksch
11. You're too close
We got our dog by accident. We didn't plan. We didn’t even think this would be a good test for stress resistance and endurance. Walk three times a day in any weather, and treat a runny nose, allergies, and indigestion.
We are now ready for kids! — Natashiashi/Pikabu.
12. “Having a dog changed my life. I'm fighting depression and can't live without my dog and best friends."
“We do everything together. We went to the indoor dog park the other day, and I needed to go to the bathroom. She was waiting for me by the fence until I got back. If that's not love and devotion, then I don't know what love and devotion is." — katelinaverkamp
13. Don't be mean to your pets or people; they trust you unconditionally!
He picked up a dog right in the middle of the field a year ago. He was collared, well-groomed, and plump like that, they searched for his owners for a long time, but no one responded. It was noticeable that the poor fellow was thrown out - he was very bored, and for the first week, he refused food and only drank water. We left him at home; the dog quickly adapted and realized that we are a new family, but here's something he has retired from his "past life." He is afraid of driving a car; when we need to take him to the vet or go to nature to relax, the dog shrinks into the seat and is afraid to get out of the car. Poor guy probably thinks we'll take him out and leave him, just like the previous owners... — #Beastpost@pn6.
14. Buns and dogs
When I was in the 6th grade, life was especially hard for our country. I remember school lunches getting scarcer.
And the thing was that the road home lay through the entire private sector of my village. Then many kept dogs for protection, which happened to run without a leash. To appease such a crazy dog, I just needed a school bun. I broke off a small piece and treated all the animals I met.
Over time, dogs from all over the area became my best friends. I knew everyone by name, and even the most formidable representatives happily waved their tails when they saw me:
And only one dog did not succumb to either my charm or treats. It was a little black curly Lota of our neighbors🦺. She didn't bark; she had a thin, shrill voice, incredibly loud. Any person passing by was always qualitatively barked at by her. I remember, and in my ears, there is a screech of this dog devoted only to its owners. — Natalymarketolog/Pikabu
15. Lessons from dogs can be cruel but effective!
As a child, I was bitten by a dog. This vinegar was left on my body as a reminder not to approach an animal when it is eating. I learned this lesson long ago, but I could not think it could catch up with me in the future. Once, walking on the street, I noticed a lonely booth in the middle of the park, and next to it was a playground. Near the booth sat a small dog that sweetly ate a giant bone. From afar, the baby picked up speed on his tiny legs. At some point, I realized that now there would be fierce trash if I didn’t make it on time. At breakneck speed, I block the already-ready-to-bite small dog from the child instead of a small dog biting me. That day I received 40 injections in my stomach. But the child remained intact. My parents invited me to dinner, and the dog was taken to a shelter. I hope the dog will find his family well, and the parents will not be too lazy in the future and take care of their child's safety. — #Beastfast@pn6.
16. Not only can people raise pets, but also people's dogs
I love my dog, but I never thought she could be so bright. We have been with her for more than a month, so she knows the correct commands and always listens to me, but sometimes there are exceptions. Probably, my pet, in such cases, believes that I am wrong and thus insists on his own. Otherwise, I cannot explain this. For example, the other day, when hyperactivity woke up a dog, I forbade chasing it around the apartment and went to my room because my head hurt terribly. After a couple of seconds, a dog approached me with my sneakers in his mouth. And no, it was not an offer to go out and take a walk; it was, as always, a warning that now she would do things to them because I forbade something stupid. I didn’t understand this hint of her right away; only after about five washing of shoes I realized that the dog was well-mannered, but that’s too cunning). — #Beastfast@pn6.
17. When a dog leaves memories for a lifetime
Our family had a dog Nyusha. She recently died. But she left behind a good memory and a bunch of funny stories. One day we went camping for a few days. Nyusha, of course, is with us. We began to set up camp for the night, so Nyusha would not get under her feet; her father tied her leash to a tree. Everyone was busy with things. Nyusha was nearby, running, and playing.
The following day we had to move on. We began to gather. Look, there is no dog leash. They began to find out who untied her yesterday. It turned out - no one. Where's the leash? All rummaged - no.
The father comes up to Nyusha and says: “Nyusha, did you take the leash? Bring it if you do!" She ran into the bushes, and he followed her. The dog began to dig. The father saw that the leash was on the ground. Such was the girl - you can’t tie her without her consent))) — #Zveropost@pn6
18. “My dog teaches me to keep things in perspective and focus on what I can or cannot control.”
“She helps me feel grateful for the little things! When life seems incomprehensible and people turn away from each other, I sometimes feel powerless. However, I know it's not so bad when my dog brings me another stick and spins around in the autumn foliage! — hannahbennett3
19. "It's okay to fool around and play with your dog sometimes like you're a kid again."
"Even if you look a little silly, just stop and enjoy life with your four-legged friend." —amandal493b7ea41
20. We hope this event will be a lesson for this man. But we're now to look for this dog and money?!
After going to the store, the man decided to put his purchases in the trunk and put a purse with money in the car. Naturally, he forgets about her and leaves the parking lot. Literally, in a couple of minutes, the realization comes that there is no purse, and there are documents and 250K. By car, not in the parking lot either. Calls the police (shops do not show cameras to the townsfolk). Operas come to the guards:
- Where is the purse?
The guards neigh
- The dog took it.
They show a video where the car moves off, the purse falls, and a healthy dog grabs it almost on the fly and runs away as fast as possible.
Now the dog has rights, a car, and good cash. — Kayt. ya/Pikabu
This is where Bill Gates lives during quarantine! What does the $ 43 million villa look like?
Bill Gates (64) has a fortune of 100 billion dollars and recently fulfilled a dream that has been pursuing him for a long time: he bought the most coveted property in the USA. The villa cost $ 43 million and is the perfect luxury hideaway during a pandemic.
The billionaire Microsoft spent $ 43 million to move with Melinda Gates, 55, to the villa just 40 meters from the Pacific Ocean. The main villa is 540 square meters and features a spa, movie theater, glass-walled pool, a 10-person jacuzzi and a tennis court. The property at the most coveted address in the US, 2808 - Ocean Front, Del Mar, California, includes a covered garden and two guest houses.
The main villa has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, the ceiling is made of solid wood and the exterior walls are made of glass. The terrace is covered with sand-colored tiles and the interior decorations and furniture are made of different essences of oak wood. Bill Gates bought the property from Madeleine Pickens, the ex-wife of Texan billionaire T. Boone Pickens. According to Architectural Digest magazine, the main villa has underfloor heating, a fully automated security system and a computerized lighting and temperature control system.
The house was built in 1999 and was repeatedly renovated by the Texan billionaire's wife, being awarded on various occasions for interior design. The designer and architect who created the most coveted property in the USA is Ken Ronchetti. The property was put up for sale in February 2019, but the crisis caused by COVID-19 forced Pickens to leave the price at almost 12 million and get rid of it quickly. Bill and Melinda Gates also have a $ 123 million home in Medina, Washington and a farm in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
Manuel Ellis, another African-American asphyxiated by police. What is written in the autopsy
A case from March, similar to George Floyd's, has now come to light. Manuel Ellis, a 32-year-old African-American, died, according to the autopsy, due to a respiratory arrest, following a physical constraint of the Tacoma police officers.
"What we learn from this video is that Manny Ellis not only said that 'I can't breathe,' but 'I can't breathe, sir,'" the lawyer for the victim's family told a news conference.
The lawyer considers that “this clearly shows that he was struggling to breathe, but at the same time he was trying to remain respectful in the last moments of his life. It is a sign that he was not the aggressive person presented by the police ".
The man died due to a respiratory arrest, due to a physical constraint, the autopsy showed, revealing that the presence of methamphetamine in his body and a heart disease could have contributed to the death of this man, only 32 years old.
The mayor of Tacoma, about 50 kilometers from Seattle, last week demanded that the four police officers involved in the case - currently on administrative leave - be expelled from the police and prosecuted.
Police said they arrested Manuel Ellis for trying to "open the doors of vehicles in which occupants were."
The girl raised a duckling from an egg, which she bought in a supermarket, and now he lives with her
What can be made from eggs bought at the supermarket? Of course, you can cook something tasty, or you can make yourself a new feathered friend. This is exactly what Adele Phillips from Port Talbot, UK did after she saw a guy from TikTok raise a duckling from an egg she bought at a supermarket. Inspired by his example, she went to the nearest supermarket, where she bought a box of duck eggs.
Adele Phillips decided to raise a duckling from a store egg after seeing a guy from TikTok do it.
To do this, Adele bought a box of eggs from the same brand that the blogger at TikTok used. Upon arriving home, she immediately placed the eggs in an incubator, which she had purchased in advance from an online store.
To her surprise, one of the six eggs was fertilized.
Since she had everything she needed, she proceeded to incubation
Thanks to the translucency, this photo shows how life is born in the egg.
On the 27th day, the duckling began to peck at the egg from the inside, and after 48 hours he was already free
After 30 long days of care and love, Adele finally has a newborn duckling
“I turned the egg 3-4 times a day, sprinkled it with water, kept it at room temperature, left it for several hours, and did the procedure again,” Adele said.
"I saw that the duckling came out of the egg when I returned from work."
Adele was surprised and very excited that the experiment was a success.
She named the duck Morris
Morris posing next to the egg he hatched from
And also with the box in which Adele brought him home
Soon, the girl decided that Morris needed a friend, so she bought him a brother named Beryl at the pet store.
“I joined a Facebook group called Ducks and Chicks, where a lot of people told me that the duckling needs a friend or he will be sad and lonely. Since I’m at work all day, I decided to take him a friend at the pet store. Now we have another little duck named Beryl! Beryl is a different breed - Khaki Campbell, he is a little older, but they get along great and Morris is happy with his new friend! I keep them in a lamp box until they have feathers, and then I plan to buy a barn and put it in the backyard along with a pond and a fence so they can play safely, ”the girl said.
