People enjoy learning about pets on social media sites and when a dog seems to exude a behavior that is unique or charming, many people may wind up viewing a post, ultimately making a canine a worldwide sensation. In the past, there was a small dog named Boo, who was noted for popular Instagram photos and videos, which showcased the dog’s tendency to be dressed up in cute clothing. Boo normally spent time alongside his pal Buddy. Unfortunately Boo passed away a few years ago, but he did live a long and happy life.
Today, there is a new internet star by the name of Milo. Milo is a duck tolling retriever and already has over 30,000 followers on Instagram. He enjoys spending time outdoors and is especially fond of butterflies. This interest became apparent when his owner, Jenn Bennet, noticed that Milo was carefully observing some Monarch butterflies that were flying in her flower garden.
Some of the butterflies actually landed on Milo’s head and his owner took a picture of him. This picture is what first made Milo popular with people worldwide. “He has a gentle demeanor and loves nature and living creatures”, stated Jenn during an interview on Good Morning America. Monarchs are dwindling in number worldwide and Jenn wants to do her part to protect this species from harm.
Another one of Milo’s interests has to deal with hobby cooking. Milo doesn’t actually cook, but Jenn jokes around about how Milo is her helper and how he will sit patiently waiting for her to create dog treats. The treats include peanut butter carrot cake, peanut butter donuts, and granola bars. Jenn has created personal recipes for a while now and she enjoys trying out new flavor combinations and allowing Milo to taste test each creation.
All natural ingredients are used for each recipe and the snacks are offered in conjunction with Milo’s normal diet. “Milo will sit patiently on the floor, watching me add ingredients to a bowl and observing me whisk the items until they are blended. Before using cookie cutters or a roller, I allow Milo to sample each batch of goodies. Milo’s way of thanking me is by using his tongue to give me a sloppy kiss”, stated Jenn.
Jenn has been sharing her love of cooking and the healthy ingredient combinations that she uses to create dog treats. If you would like to learn more about the treats that Milo prefers, you can acquire a listing of the ingredients used and the preparation steps, by visiting Jenn’s Instagram page.
Additionally, if you want to be inspired by a furry creature who is only 2 years old, but has a lot of character and love for life, be sure to stay updated, by browsing the photos and the unique captions that Jenn shares with her audience. Who knows, you may even become inspired to adopt your own dog companion and to share some of the heartwarming moments that you experience when you are alone with your new pet.
Couple Are Confused Why One Picture Exploded In Popularity – Then They Read The Comments…
When social media first arrived, most thought it was the next evolution of the bulletin board and forums. There was a topic for just about everything, and everybody could respond in writing or post images or both. However, social media has since become a lot more than just posting thoughts and phrases. It has become an extremely effective way to influence many, many others. And it’s impact is so widespread, national governments now have to worry about it as an operational risk.
Some folks are just a natural to social media, jumping in like a fish to water. While making a digital dent might seem like the challenge impossible for many, these people are able to craft and deliver in such a way that that automatically develop large audiences online wherever they post. Dubbed “influencers,” these easy posters seem to be untouchable in the social media world, always seeming to draw more and more traffic no matter what they do. That was the case for one couple who had a huge following with their Instagram account. Every post they made was responded to with thousands of positive fans. Then they made one particular post that hit everything sideways. Like their other work, this post went viral too, but the effects were definitely unintended.
Young Boy Keeps Toy He Was Measured Against As A Premature Baby
Doctors sent home a woman and her husband to prepare for a miscarriage, but the defiant parents stayed put and now have the tale of a lifetime to tell.
So does their four-year-old son Logan Ray, born less than six months of pregnancy, has a Superman action-figure as proof of how small he was at birth. He was only 12 inches in length and weighed a pound and a half. He and the action figure his parents Rob and Val placed beside him shortly after his birth, are now inseparable.
How did this fascinating and heartwarming story come about?
Nearly five years ago, when Val was pregnant with their son, doctors wiped the smiles off their faces by announcing that the baby would not make it to full term. The Physician claims the baby would not survive at all, and they should brace themselves for any eventuality.
The reason for the bad news was that Val had been diagnosed with a cervix problem. The doctors said examinations showed her Cervix was incompetent. That situation usually transpires when unstable cervical tissue induces or contributes to premature delivery or the loss of pregnancy even though the gestation is, on the other hand, healthy.
Val and Rob blocked out the bad news they received, and we’re adamant that they would remain in the hospital to see the pregnancy through. The baby was a fighter too and stayed put for all of twenty-three weeks. Val helped out by keeping her feet elevated and staying in bed for three weeks without getting up to do anything that could further jeopardize the pregnancy.
She gave birth to a child now known as the ”Superman Baby” for dual reasons. He was mighty strong and put up a fight to survive, and he was the size of a Superman toy. The toy idea came about when the nurses suggested to the mom that she should use something like a keepsake to measure the baby alongside. When she ran the idea by her husband, he was very supportive and they agreed on the Superman novelty.
The doll was sanitized and placed beside Logan. For fifteen weeks, he remained in an incubator at the Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon fighting a myriad of complications that many feared would hinder the survival of Logan, but he pulled through like a champ. It was after those four months that he was finally able to leave with his parents.
From the hospital days to now, four years later, Val has been taking a multitude of photos with Logan carrying around his action figure. The doll is an indicator of Logan’s successful development after a traumatic experience in the first few months of his life.
According to the happy and grateful parents, they communicate with the doctor who wants a regular update on Logan, who he refers to as ” tough.”
Many people consider not just Logan’s survival but the fact that he has no further complications a miracle. Just like his action figure, Logan is healthy and strong as any regular child his age. His parents say they will never get rid of the Superman tog as memorabilia is not just for them, but for Logan when he becomes an adult.
He will have a tear-jerking story to tell years from now if or when he becomes a parent as well.
Adorable Tiny Chihuahua Lands Hero Dog of the Year Award In Today’s Most Wholesome News
The American Humane Hero Dog Award ceremony may not be the most prestigious event of the year, but that is because everyone else is wrong. This year, the honorific was bestowed upon a tiny Chihuahua known for her huge heart, Little MacKenzie. As Chihuahua’s go, Little MacKenzie is just as small and adorable as you’d imagine only there is something slightly unique about her at a second glance!
When you look at the past award winners of the American Humane Hero Dog Awards, you’ll see canines of every size, shape, and personality. From the adorable Dolly Pawton, a cardiac alert dog from Maine, to our own Little MacKenzie, there is something different to cherish about each of them. For her part, the Chihuahua named Little MacKenzie was born with a cleft palate, a birth condition that alters the opening of the mouth. Despite her birth defect and some of the physical handicaps that came with it, including an inability to bark, Little MacKenzie has definitely been living her best life at the shelter that rescued her.
Even though she is small of size, MacKenzie brings a lot of heart to every room that she walks into. She has been serving as a service support dog for baby rescue animals that were born with birth defects of their own. That isn’t to say that Little MacKenzie had it easy growing up herself. MacKenzie would contract aspiration pneumonia as a puppy and that respiratory condition would nearly end her life. Surviving pneumonia in order to overcome her health defect would be a long journey that the pup would have to take. Nowadays you couldn’t tell that she struggled in the past, though.
MacKenzie is as playful and comforting with the other baby rescue animals as she is with the nursing staff and children who visit the rescue. Some of MacKenzie’s tasks in the nursery include playing with the puppies, socializing with the rescue animals, and teaching the other rescue animals to be comfortable. MacKenzie was nominated among six other finalists from around the nation, ultimately coming up on top to also become the Hero Shelter Dog of the Year Award to go along with her American Hero Dog title.
The American Humane Hero Dog Awards was presided over by Robin Ganzert, the CEO and President of American Humane. Speaking on the 2020 festivities, Ganzert claimed that the Hero Dog Awards was created to honor some of the most heroic creatures in the world. Ganzert would go on to describe the various nominated canines as having gone beyond ‘the call of duty’ while honoring the ‘age-old bond’ between both people and animals. Other great winners included Olive for 2020 Therapy Dog of the Year and Aura for the 2020 Guide & Hearing Dog of the Year.

Mysterious Story Of How A Dad Is Raising Money For Charity Through Amateurish Pet Portraits
Mysterious things do occur every day. It’s happened to Phil Heckels who has amassed thousands of pounds for charity by making drawings of people’s pets.
Phil Heckels spoke to CNN about how it happened. It started six weeks ago when he tried to help his 6-year-old son create a thank you card for family.
He came up with an idea to sketch the family dog, a black Labrador with the name Narla just to motivate his son. He will later post the picture of the drawing on Facebook with the playful caption about selling it for $390.
“It was pretty crap,” said Heckels, from Worthing, south England, who was startled to see offers for his work.
As the day drew to a close, he had gotten seven requests from pals who also desired drawings of their pets. The next few days would see many orders come in as his popularity grew daily.
Heckels who has a full time job in commercial real estate decided to create a special page for his artwork services. He named the page “Hercule Van Wolfwinkle”, an alias he’s made use of on Facebook for over ten years.
“Extremely realistic pictures which will grace any household,” reads the tagline on the page but looking at it closely, this is not the case.
Big eyes, fat arms and abnormal features are characteristics of his works but Heckles claims he’s working within what he knows how to do.
“I genuinely try quite hard to try and draw them,” he said, mentioning the fact that he had little knowledge of art at school since he didn’t study the subject at GCSE, the English standard of a high school degree.
To him, he’s enjoying the whole thing.
“I’m just having a laugh with it,” Heckels told CNN. “People seem to be enjoying it and I’m certainly enjoying it.”
A particular client demanded to pay Heckles for his services, but Heckels surprisingly turned down the payment.
“I can’t take any money for it so give some money to charity,” Heckels said he told the client.
Heckels would later establish a JustGiving fundraiser for Turning Tides, a charity for the homeless and destitute. He claims his family has been an ardent supporter for years.
At the time of writing, the fundraiser has realized over £11,500 (about $15,000). Heckels says he’s keen on ending homelessness.
“It’s an absolute basic human need to have a roof over your head,” he said further saying he’ll keep producing more works as long as people are contributing to the cause.
In all, he’s produced over 220 portraits, out of over 1,000 requests.
Though Heckels doesn’t think he’ll attend to all the requests, he’s keen on raising more money as well as public attention in a bid of being a source of happiness during these difficult times.
“It is like a little bit of fun and a little bit of light when there isn’t much to be cheery about at the minute,” he said. “I would die a happy man if I could spend the rest of my life doing this.
So Touching! Actor In Street Performance Gets Heartwarming Reaction From A Stray Dog
A surprising act happened in the Turkish city of Izmit this past week.
A drama group was filming one of its scenes by the roadside when a homeless dog who was watching interrupted albeit for a good cause. It happened that one of the actors, Numan Ertugrul Uzunsoy was demonstrating to be injured and pretended to be dead on the ground.
The dog seeing this, thought the actor was truthfully dying and needed help urgently. He sprinted forward to the scene, interrupting the filming process.
Uzonsoy was startled when the dog drooled over him, mistakening the touch for one of the crew members.
“I felt warmth on my face. First, I thought my costar was approaching me,” Uzunsoy told the Dodo. “I was very happy when I felt the dog’s kisses… I was very touched. He was like an angel who wanted to help me. It was a very emotional moment for me. I was not expecting it.”
Passersby and the crew felt emotional about the dog’s interference and didn’t stop the heartwarming moment. Thereafter, the dog was led off from the scene. Uzunsoy was able to resume and the drama continued.
For Uzunsoy, he was a little bit pained he couldn’t see the dog after they ended the filming. Yet locals confirmed the dog often visited the area.
A dog lover, Uzinsoy has resolved to look for the hound as he wants to keep the dog as a friend. When he does find him, Uzunsoy would ensure his pet becomes his friend forever.
