Pets are our everyday heroes. Some are trained to carry out lifesaving tasks, while others perform them just because they can! We love a great story about one of the great furry heroes in your life, so we asked for you to send us some! Sometimes, our funny pets make us laugh more than anyone else could. Here are some wonderful happy stories we have to share.
They See Me Rollin'
Funny animal stories are always entertaining, cats are constant entertainment. Between the stoic exterior lies unending laughs. This is just one of many funny cat stories that every cat owner can share! "I had a farm cat when I was a teenager that loved to climb up and sit on the roof. Problem was, he had the habit of rolling over for a tummy rub whenever he saw a person. So it was a distressingly common occurrence to walk near the house and have him roll right off the roof. You’d think after the first three times he’d have learned, but no. He lived a long life despite himself."
Puppy See, Puppy Do
Normally, funny puppy stories are shared around social media, but not many intelligent ones. Here's a very intelligent dog, even as a young pup! "My 4 month old Sharpei puppy accidentally locked herself in my car where both sets of my keys were sitting. It was Memorial Day weekend and it would have cost $100 for the locksmith to come and get her out. Fortunately the car was in the garage and the window was slightly open but it was the type of lock that a hangar couldn't hook on. So my daughter went to the driver's side and pantomimed unlocking the door with her teeth. After 3 demonstrations, the puppy reached down and unlocked the door with her teeth! Beauty AND brains and saved me $100 (that I didn't have anyway!)"
Dogs have the natural instinct to protect their owners, and these amazing dogs are no exception! Funny dog stories don't have nothing on these great guard dogs! "I was living in Long Beach, CA. I had two dogs -- German Shepherd mix and Malamute mix. one night the German Shepherd -- Troy, went racing out the dog door into the back yard, barking ferociously. I went into my bedroom to see if I could see what had her so upset. I couldn't see anything, so I turned to go leave my bedroom. My Malamute -- Max -- would not let me out of my bedroom. I guess he knew I would go out into the back yard. He kept blocking me until Troy came back into the house -- I guess that was the "all clear" signal. I think that someone had climbed my back fence -- and climbed it out much faster!" Who wouldn't want a dog after stories like that? Here is a great video that came up in pet news recently. A state trooper was on his way to a house fire, but was lost on the rural roads of the country. The owner's dog stepped up to the plate and took off running to guide him, and led the cop back to his house! Is he the world's most amazing dog? If you haven't seen this viral video, it is a must see! This cat actually saves his human from a dog attack: Pets can be some of the best companions you'll ever have. These extraordinary stories only scratch the surface of reasons why we should be thankful for our furry friends!
