Annual Festival In Nepal Thanks Dogs For Being Our Friends

We say that dogs are human's best friend all the time, but Nepal is taking it to a whole new level. They have an entire holiday that celebrates our friends the dogs.

It's happens during Diwali and is a sort of festival of lights celebrated each fall in India, Nepal and elsewhere in the region.

The festival is called Kukur Tihar and specifically thanks our furry friends for their loyalty and their friendship.

During Kukur Tihar, people offer garlands, tika, and delicious food to dogs to pay tribute to them. The garlands are one of the highest signs of respect.

Enjoy these breathtaking images of the dogs being honored. I don't know about you, but I want to bring this festival to America too.

Sometimes I Meet People And Feel Bad For Their Dog

How To Understand What Your Dog Is Trying To Say

You may think that look on your dog's face is a smile or that behavior is too cute, but we often don't read dog behaviors especially well, and as a result, we imperil our dog's happiness and maybe even our safety if we're not careful.

In order to completely understand what your dog is trying to say, listen closely to their body language and the noises they make.

You may think a dog wagging his tail is happy, but it can come from nervousness, apprehension, and even sometimes aggression.

I Talk To My Pets Like They're Human

17 Funny Ways My Dog Has Added So Much More To My Life Than Just Being A Pet

I've had a few dogs over the course of my life, but none have been as special as Ham, my year and a half old lab mix.

He has more strange quirks and funny habits than any dog I've ever met. These are just a few of the ways he brings a little light into my life.

1. When he passes out while staring at my boyfriend.
2. When he starts running around the house insanely because he saw a squirrel.

I've never quite understood it. The squirrel is simply his mortal enemy. All he wants in life is to go get that squirrel.

3. When he sees your reflection in the window and starts barking at the Window People.

Who are those people!?!?

4. When he sees his own reflection in the skylight and starts barking at Sky Dog.

Who is that dog!?!?

5. The way he farts every time he jumps off the couch.

Or anything for that matter. Every time he jumps down from anything he rips an audible fart. What an old man.

6. When I try to wake up my boyfriend by sicking the dog on him...

...and he just goes to sleep on the bed.

7. When I'm not sure if he'll be good with puppies or kids and he ends up being the best.

Except for that time he humped the puppy at the dog park.

8. When he is for no reason terrified of his dog bowl.

We ended up switching back to the old bowl.

9. When I have to fish his antler out from under the couch a dozen times a day.

Because he refuses to chew on his antler anywhere but right next to the couch.

10. When he gets that tail.

He'll get ahold of it and walk in circles out of the room. It's entertaining as hell.

11. When he clearly really has to poop while out on a walk.

But he refuses to go because he's too excited.

12. Or when he starts to poop while on our walk.

And doesn't bother to stop walking, leaving a trail of poop behind him.

13. When he nearly jumps the fence every time someone comes over.

We're all pretty amazed by the hops this dog has.

14. When he gets tired lips.

When Ham gets especially tired, he gets these big, pouty lips. It's pretty funny.

15. Dog smiles on hikes.
16. When I leave for 2 minutes, 2 hours, 2 days or 2 weeks...

He always reacts the same when I get home. I guess it's my fault for not teaching him how to tell time.

17. The time I snapped this photo of him:

I think just about anyone who considers a dog to be their best companion through life have plenty of funny stories about their pooches too.

Horse Pretends To Be Dead Every Time Someone Tries To Ride Him

A hilarious video compilation that has gone viral shows a horse named Jingang that plays dead every time someone attempts to ride him.

It was first posted by Kritter Klub on YouTube and it was later shared on Facebook by Frasisco Zalasar, a horse trainer from Durango City.

The video compilation shows many encounters where the animal threw itself to the ground when it was approached or mounted by a human.

Without a doubt, Jingang has got the death trick down so well that he even loosens his tongue and puts his hooves in weird positions to make it look like he can go on no longer.

He only stays on the ground for a few seconds, but when anyone starts approaching to get on him, he drops back to the floor.

According to a man in the video, the behavior is "cute but naughty."

The funny video has been viewed over 24 million times and counting, and the horse has impressed netizens with its amazing acting skills.


Watch it and decide for yourself, do you think the animal is too lazy, he is playing around, or he just wants to be left alone?

Regardless, we have an Oscar nominee here!

Woman Creates Dog Hospice, Makes Sure Their Final Days Are The Best Days

Dogs can give unconditional love that many of us have felt and enjoyed, as these amazing creatures define friendship and loyalty better than humans.

They have a good nature and make ideal companions, providing plenty of joy and love, and they deserve the same.

Yet, when they get old or sick, many of their owners leave them in animal shelters to be euthanized or die alone, and some even kick their pets out onto the streets.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals reports that about 2.6 million dogs and cats were euthanized by animal shelters across the U.S in 2011.

This number has been decreased in recent years to about 1.5 million, but we could definitely do better.

Fortunately, there are still people who cannot stand such cruelty, and one of these, the 46-year-old Nicola Coyle, decided to set up a hospice in her home and cater for sick and abandoned dogs.

This retired nurse goes to shelters, pounds, and other charities, and rescues dogs that are either too old or too sick and are given no more than 6 months to live.

The Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project has been running out of her home for several years now, and last year she made it an official project.

With the help of her children, she takes in two dogs at a time and loves them and cares for them like no one before.

The dogs get attention, cuddles, and ruffles roll all day long and receive ice-cream muzzles, doggy treats, pub outings, steak dinners, and birthday parties.

Nicola claims she enjoys every single moment, even though it is an utterly heartbreaking job. She makes sure the dogs spend their final days, weeks or months with the love they deserve.

Each of these dogs has a different story, but Nicola believes most of the dying dogs are abandoned by owners unwilling to pay for expensive vets bills or are 'working dogs' no longer considered useful.

One charity she regularly helps claims that they are extremely grateful to her as she loves and cares for the most desperate dogs.

She spends about £500 on each dog, from her savings and funds raised from donations to her project, which cover the medical bills, bucket lists, and transportation of the dogs to her home, as well as the parties, treats, outings, and accessories.

When the dogs die, she buries them in her backyard garden or has them cremated. She says that 20 dogs are buries in her garden, as well as her parents' garden, and some of them are cremated.

If the dogs stay much longer than anticipated, she always keeps them for as long as they hold on.

As she does not know their birthdays, she makes sure every dog has a birthday party in her home, and she takes them for a day at the seaside, they get fish and chips on the beach and ice cream.

She also takes the dogs to the local pub, and they get a steak dinner too.

Nicola claims that her children, Harry and Olivia, aged 14 and 15, along with her friend, Lisa Emmans, are her greatest support, as she gets emotional every time a dog leaves her.

Joanne Snaith, from Helping Yorkshire Poundies, says that Nicola does an amazing job by rescuing dogs that have been kicked out by their owners at the very end of their lives.

She adds that she admires the work of The Grey Muzzle Project, as rescuing is a difficult and never-ending hard work. Moreover, Nicola has to put herself through the emotional wringer with every dog.

Saying goodbye to a dog can be a heartbreaking experience not everyone can handle, but this woman has decided to go through it all numerous times, just to make sure the abandoned dogs spend their final days living life to the fullest.

Her project has saved numerous British dogs from miserable endings, so if you want to find out more about it and donate, visit them on Facebook.
