The pit bull puppy is enamored of the horse. Eventually, the horse returns the little guy’s love. Warning…the sweetness quotient is high with this video. Who can resist adoration?

The well-meaning people who picked up an injured dog took her to a dog-rescue centre. When the centre realized they were dealing with a fox, they brought her to the Nuneaton & Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary.
By that time, she was too habituated to humans to survive in the wild. She will live the rest of her life with the sanctuary’s other resident foxes. From the looks of this video, she will have a good life.

Manatees are surely one of the strangest sea mammals. Their bulky shapes and slow movements make them look like the teddy bears of the sea – not in shape but in winsomeness.
Humans are their greatest threat, through habitat destruction, ship strikes, pollution and fishing gear. To draw attention to these gentle creatures, Mermaid Melissa made the video below. It is 14 minutes well spent – a slow, gentle homage to the manatee.

The common mynah is not always well appreciated in countries where it has crowded out native species. In India, where it is native, it is a boon to farmers because it dines on crop pests. It is also appreciated as a pet because of its keen intelligence and ability to mimic human language.
A woman in Hawaii found a baby mynah that had fallen from a nest. In just over a year the bird had mastered a wide range of phrases and sounds. This is just one of the videos on the site. Check out the others to witness Jack’s large vocabulary and affectionate nature.
This cat gives the best snuggles ever – wrapping legs around the owner’s neck and nuzzling.

Goats can teach us a lot about enjoying our bodies. The young ones seem totally amazed by their ability to hop, jump, leap and cavort joyously. Hard to stay sad or grumpy while watching a baby goat.

A friend’s Facebook post reminded me there still may be many people who have not seen the PBS story about Shirley and Jenny. Both were circus elephants and formed a close bond.
After a separation of more than 20 years, they were reunited at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. This is what happened.
