WATCH | Cats Hilarious Reaction To Owner’s ‘Wet Fart’

If you are lucky enough to have a cat, then you probably already know just how much they love squeaky toys.

Even if they do not have a squeaky toy, they probably have a massive range of other cat toys that emit weird noises.

But it would appear that anything that sounds remotely like a wet fart will be enough to make your cat run for the fields based on the cat’s reaction in the video below.

And who can blame them?

The chap in the video below somehow managed to create a cinematic version of the noise of a very wet and long ‘air biscuit’.

At first, the cat looked worried and concerned.

But once the cat’s owner had expelled the gas and the inevitable sigh that followed, the car quickly accelerated to the speed of light and got the hell out of there.

Rumour is that the cat never returned and that a HAZMAT team was called in to clear the area.

It also apparently refused to touch its cat food for several minutes.

WATCH | Dog Rescues Drowning Dog From Swimming Pool

A CCTV camera has caught the amazing moment when a dog comes to the aid of another dog who had accidentally fallen into a swimming pool.

The small white dog was walking around the pool when she took her eyes off the path in front of her and ended up falling into the water. 

The small white dog struggles to stay afloat

After several minutes of frantic swimming, another dog comes over and initially seems playful.

But then, as if realising that the dog is in real danger, the heroic dog tries to pull the dog out of the swimming pool by its ears. 

The first attempt results in the white dog being pulled to the side of the pool. But the stricken dog quickly falls back once again into the water. 

After the first attempt failed, the back dog successfully pulls the white dog out of the pool.

Not giving up, the black dog keeps trying to save the dog until he finally manages to pull the small dog to safety. 

This video is another prime example of why dogs have such a special place in our hearts.

WATCH | Police Horse ‘Barnaby’ Refuses To Part With Traffic Cone

A video has been shared on Facebook of the moment when a police horse refused to let go of a traffic cone. 

In the 42 second clip, shared in ‘Horses & Humor International’, Barnaby’s human colleagues try to convince him to let go of the cone. 

But Barnaby is having none of it and continues to keep the cone firmly locked in his teeth. 

At one point, Barnaby’s rider shouts jokingly: ‘You’re going to hit me with it!’.

Another colleague asks: ‘Barnaby, what are you doing’ as the horse continues to play with the cone.

WATCH | Cockapoo Rescued From Fast-FLowing Icy River By Good Samaritan

A heartwarming video has been shared on Twitter of the moment when ‘Fudge’ the cockapoo was plucked from a fast-flowing icy river. 

Fudge had slipped into the murky River Thames after skidding down a steep embankment near Kew Gardens yesterday (4th Feb). 

In the footage, Fudge can be seen to desperately try and clamber out of the river, but due to the water’s speed and the slippery bank, the dog stood little chance of escaping. 

And that is when a member of the public got involved. 

The kind-hearted male climbed down a ladder towards the water’s edge and positioned himself downriver of where the dog was heading. 

Fudge clearly understood what his rescuer was trying to do, as he tried desperately to swim towards him. 

As Fudge got closer, the kind-hearted good samaritan reached out and grabbed hold of the dog, undoubtedly saving his life. 

By the time the good samaritan had saved the dog, a small crowd had gathered, and they cheered the rescuer, calling him a hero, as he took the dog to safety.

Talking about the incident, a spokesperson for the RNLI said:

‘A good Samaritan stepped in here to save the day & we’re relieved that this rescue ended well. 

‘If you see an animal in trouble in the water, call 999 & ask for the Coastguard. 

‘We have 4 lifeboat stations on the River Thames & our crews there have performed many animal rescues’.

7-Year-Old Labrador ‘Willy’ Rescued After Falling 20ft Into A Well

Animal rescue volunteers and Firefighters from Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service jumped into action last night to rescue a labrador that had fallen into a well. 

After going missy, ‘Willy’ was found by his owner 20ft down in a dark and water-filled well. 

Local animal rescue lead, Jim Green, was called to the scene and after assessing the situation, called for a water pump as rescuers put the rescue plan in place. 

The water pump that had been requested by Jim meant that the risk of ‘Willy’ drowning was significantly reduced, as the high-pressure machine sucked flood water out of the well. 

It is not known how long ‘Willy’ had been down the well before he was rescued. Friends of Hampshire Animal Rescue / Facebook

A specialist animal rescue team from Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service (Eastleigh) also responded to the call for help. 

After arriving on the scene, a firefighter was lowered into the dark, cold well with only inches of space to spare. 

After a tense few moments, Willy was brought back to dry land and was quickly dried off before being given some treats. 

Thankfully, Willy was not injured and after being given a clean bill of earth, spent the rest of the evening at home in his bed.

WATCH | Police Dog ‘Wakes Up’ Firefighters After Activating Vehicle’s Siren

As a police dog handler, you get to play with your four-legged-friend as you wait for the next emergency call to come in. 

This ‘play’ can involve wrestling your dog for its favourite indestructible kong toy

Although, the chances of you being able to wrestle the kong from the dogs teeth are slim. 

Or you could just wave your hand around in front of your furry missiles teeth like this officer was doing as they hung out outside the front of a fire station. 

All was going well until K9 ‘Grimm’ lurched forward and activated the cars deafening siren. 

At the time, ‘Grimm’ was trying to catch his handlers fingers with his paw. 

But when the paw came down, it landed right on the button that turns on the siren. The lightning-fast reflexes of the officer meant that it was not on for long. 

After turning the siren off, the officer panned the camera round to face the fire station and said: ‘ssshhhh – you don’t want to wake the firefighters’. 

There has always been some light-hearted banter between firefighters and other parts of the emergency services. 

But, as far as we are aware, this is the first time a ‘land shark’ has become involved in the banter!

WATCH | This Dog Is Sliding Out Of 2020 With Style

With the way 2020 went down, we all could probably do with watching a video that brings our souls some much-needed joy. 

Here is that video. 

I will confess that I have watched this video at least ten times (and counting). 

Not only do I love dogs, but I also enjoy sliding on snow with a snowboard strapped to my feet.

So the fact that this dog has chosen a pristine bit of this freshly prepared slope to slide down did make me smile.  

What better way to slide out of 2020? Especially if the dog enjoyed a bit of apres-ski after hitting the slopes.

WATCH | Police Dog Handler; Expectation Vs Reality

When you think of a police dog handler, your mind probably conjures up images of big white teeth, dogs chasing wrong-uns, and vehicle pursuits.

Not forgetting, of course, the life-saving work police dogs and their handlers do when it comes to finding high-risk missing people.

And, to be honest, most of those images are quite an accurate depiction of what life as a dog handler is really like.

My uncle was a police dog handler for two 20 years, and he loved it.

I also enjoyed volunteering as the stand-in ‘wrong’un’ whenever my uncle and his trusty land shark (or fury missile) needed some weekend training.

But what about downtime?

What does a police dog (and by default, his/her handler) enjoy doing when not searching for high-risk missing people or taking on dangerous criminals?

Well, one police officer has made a short video of what his four-legged-friend likes to get up to on his days off.

And, as you can imagine, it involves empty boxes and water.

Czech Police Called By Hunters After Deer Steals Rifle

Czech police are searching for a hunter’s rifle after a deer allegedly snatched it in its antlers before running away with it during a hunting trip in southern Bohemia.

Police said the hunter lost his 0.22 Hornet rifle during the trip in a forest near the village of Horni Plana on Friday.

According to a police press release issued on Tuesday, one of the hunting group’s dogs frightened the stag as they were wandering in the dense forest. 

The deer then rushed directly at one of the hunters and tore the man’s left sleeve with its antler as it rushed past him.

Officials said the hunter had slung his rifle over his left hand and the gun had slid down onto the deer’s antler when his sleeve was shredded.

“The deer escaped the hunter with a weapon,” police said in the statement, which was translated into English.

Police verified that the rifle didn’t have any ammunition in it at the time of the episode.

Another hunter reportedly located the deer with the rifle swaying from its antlers over a kilometre away from where the initial contact with the deer took place.

After searching the forest for the rifle, hunters reported the missing gun to police.

Police said lost weapons must be reported to authorities under the country’s Firearms and Ammunition Act.

“If anyone finds the weapon, they are obliged to hand it over to the nearest police department,” police said.
