Dog Gets Stuck In Car Grill For 11 Miles, Survives With Minor Injuries!

Filed under: PetsDogCrazzzzypoodleBichon

Holy fish paste! This is super cray cray!

A poodle-bichon mix is one lucky duck pooch after getting an unexpected ride to Providence, RI.

A Massachusetts driver saw the pup dart into the street and slammed on his brakes. Thinking he missed the dog, he continued to drive across state lines to Rhode Island.

That's when a second driver flagged the car down, telling the driver that the poor doggie was stuck!!!

Cutest thing at The Cincinnati Zoo’s

Sooo Cuuuuuute!

On Saturday Tessa, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's four-year-old giraffe, gave birth to her first calf, and the first born at the zoo in 26 years.

The Cincinnati Zoo’s history with giraffe births goes back to 1889 when it became the first zoo in the Western Hemisphere to have a giraffe born in captivity.

The sex of the calf hasn't been checked, as the mother and child are being left alone to bond.

The zoo posted photos on its blog, along with a sentence that makes human childbirth sound relatively easy: "volunteers noticed the calf's hoof coming through."

Tessa, who currently weighs approximately 1,800 pounds, came to the Cincinnati Zoo in 2008 from the Houston Zoo for the opening of the Giraffe Ridge exhibit.

The father, “Kimbaumbau” (Kimba) also came to Cincinnati in 2008, from the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.

Dog Electrocuted During Walk

Filed under: TV NewsSad SadDog

This is such terrible news.

An 8-month-old Labrador retriever named Luna was electrocuted and subsequently killed while walking over a manhole cover in Providence, Rhode Island.

Nick Penna drove by and stopped when he saw the frantic dog owner as the poor pup convulsed and howled in pain in the middle of the street.

He told reporters:

"We thought maybe she had some glass in her foot or there was a frozen piece of ice in her foot because was just howling and looking at her feet."

Unfortunately, after they tried to pick the dog up to move her they realized it was much worse than that.

"I felt the same current of electricity coming through my fingers. I said this is electrical in nature. I said something is going wrong with the dog standing on top of this manhole cover."

Luna died after she arrived at a veterinarians office 35 minutes later. So sad!

Apparently, there was a short in a frayed wire underground connecting to a nearby pole and Luna was standing in a puddle which conducted the electricity.

Watch the news story above for all the details on this tragic story.
