Dogs teach baby how to chew toys (VIDEO)


They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks… but old dogs are perfectly capable of teaching tricks to babies, as this video shows.

Currently going viral, the video entitled 'Puggles teach baby to chew' starts off showing a dog munching on a toy, before panning over to a little boy lying on his belly.

After examining what the dog was doing the baby then proceeds to chew his toy in a very similar manner.

The video has already been viewed more than 140,000 times. It's not known if the dogs went on to teach the lad how to chase cats or pee up lamp-posts.


A photographer has used his humble iPhone and a whole lot of ingenuity to record impressive footage of animals which even David Attenborough would be proud of.

Mark Rober says that on a recent trip to the zoo, he noticed how desperate people were to get the attention of the gorillas so they could get a photo.

That's when he hit upon the idea of using the screen of his iPhone to let the animals he was filming, to see themselves… and sure enough the idea worked.

In fact it worked so well he went on to produce a 'Gorilla cam' -- consisting of a  iPhone mounted behind a mirror with a hole cut in it -- to get some even more impressive footage.

The RSPCA in Australia have developed an iPad app for cats which sees them play with a virtual ball of yarn and defend cheese from invading mice.

It's hoped the app could be used to enrich the lives of house-dwelling cats in Oz and promote the organisations 'Adopt a Cat Month'.

RSPCA man Michael Beatty said: "Basically, you place your iPad on the ground, start the game and your cat or kitten can interact with it on his/her own terms.


There's something about videos of interspecies animal friendships which its hard not to find adorable! Don't believe us... just click play.


This video shows a pet wolf getting along terrifically with a young kitten -- in fact they're getting on so well it looks like the cat has been fostered by the wolf.

Adam Bilsing, who uploaded the video in which the two animals can be seen cuddling up to each other and then the wolf picking up the kitten gently in its mouth, did so with the simple comment "... and we were worried"

We just hope that after the camera stopped rolling this cute scene didn't take a gory turn and become something a whole less cute.

275x250.jpg A letter from a three-and-a-half-year-old girl who wanted to know why Tiger Bread was called that when it looks more like a giraffe has seen the product renamed.

Little Lily Robinson had initially written to Sainsbury's after being confused by the product in her mother's shopping basket and offering a new name for it.

And after customer service man Chris King (aged 27 1/3) replied saying "renaming tiger bread giraffe bread is a brilliant idea" the exchange went viral online.

Now, after a Facebook campaign the supermarket has announced it is officially renaming the loaf. Well done Lily!
