Shepherd Dogs Help Save Goats And Cheetahs At The Same Time!

Filed under: DogGoatCheetah

In Gobabis, Namibia in Africa there is a delicate balance of nature.

Livestock, like goats, are integral to the economy and society.

But there's always the constant threat of attack because Namibia is home to the world's largest population of wild cheetahs!!

So how do you keep your livestock safe??

Kangal dogs!!

These cutie pooches protect their goat buddies against cheetahs but don't kill them.

They just scare most predators away!

So ever since the dogs were introduced into Namibia 19-years ago, the area has seen the largest population of wild cheetahs in 30 years at 4,000!!

That's incredible! The dogs protect the flock, so there's no longer a reason for farmers to have to kill cheetahs!!

Check out the video (above) to see a cutie guard dog in action!

Filed under: Silly!One DirectionCrazzzzy

one direction brit awards liam payne stalker home debt crisis

Dear President Obama,

We think we've found a solution to the nation's debt crisis.

If we combine the forces of Veronica Mars' fans with the power held by Directioners, the United States of America could toootally jump out of the red by 2015.

Even if the 1D boys aren't from the land of the free, and even if a lot of the Directioners are across the pond, we're sure they'd all rally together for their family in the States! LOLz!

And then the WHOLE WORLD!!

We've already seen the crazy goodness that came from the VM kickstarter fund, but check out the latest example of One Direction forces coming together:

DJs Nigel Freshman and Cat James from Free Radio in the West Midlands inadvertently led over 100 fans to the site of Liam Payne's family home, where they mistakenly believed concert tickets could be found.

According to Liam's father, Geoff:

Mom Vows To Spend NO MONEY On Her Child In 2013

When Hattie Garlick was laid off from her newspaper job just five days before Christmas, she and her hubby had to re-evaluate their spending-

Even on their 2-year-old son!

So Hattie has decided to go minimalist, attempting to go an entire year without spending one unnecessary penny.

OK, obviously she can't spend NO money- the kid has to eat! And medicine can't count- this is about cutting unnecessary expenses!

So what are the rules to this whole no spending experiment?
