Imagine if, in the innocence of your childhood, you had an obnoxious pig attached to your back? Does the thought of that bring you some strange form of joy? Thought so. I’ve noticed lately that humans are absolutely obsessed with pigs. They’re unique little creatures that make weird calls in the wild, which I think is a huge part of their appeal. PETSAMI has uploaded this video of a pig literally attaching himself to a child’s back. This makes me think — do pigs love humans as much as we adore them? The two in the video seem like true bffs. I feel as though this video symbolizes the infinite cohort between man and pig, especially from an early age.

Like Christmas, we can all expect something every year — Jimmy Kimmel’s annual Naughty or Nice interrogation. In the segment, Kimmel and his cousin Sal sit down with a few children and ask them if they’ve been naughty or nice. Apparently he does this to help out Santa Claus, who is obviously too busy to interview every child about their behaviour. How thoughtful of him.
This year, Kimmel interviewed bffs Sophie and Zoey about their shenanigans this year. Of course, the girls were both well-behaved this year. With the exception of asparagus-smelling pee. The interview got to that weird place.

Suburban Bullies is home to many bulldogs — but this week they are focusing on their superstar, Tebow. Tebow is a mere three weeks old, but he has the heart (and wrinkled face) of an old, strong soul.
In the video uploaded by the organization, Tebow struggles to lift himself up for his walk across the glorious plains of his living room. To add to the cuteness, he squeals in a screech-like manner. I was scared that this little pup was in pain trying to walk, but I hope that someday he successfully goes on his travels. In the meantime, my heart will be melting over his cuteness.
This September, a 10-year-old boy named James G. Groccia wrote a letter to LEGO articulating his love for the company. James, who has Asperger’s syndrome, told LEGO that their products help him develop social skills. This lovely sentiment was followed by a completely crushed heart of James — his true dreams of owning an Emerald Night set could never be fulfilled because it was no longer in stores. In the letter, James politely asks the company if they have anymore Emerald Night sets hidden away in their headquarters. I’m so glad James wrote this letter, because what followed literally made his dreams come true.
Not only did LEGO mail an Emerald Night set to James, but they wrote him a letter as well. The look on James’ face when he opens the package is literally one of the most heart warming things I have seen lately. Seeing the joy on his face gives me a whole new outlook on LEGO. Who knew the toy had such a profound effect on children?

What is this mystical creature before your eyes? A Banthapug, duh. This new species of is a small teaser of the upcoming Star Wars movie. Just kidding, but it is quite possibly the most adorable thing I’ve seen all day. StarWarsChick01 dressed up this little one, aka Chubbs the Pug, for Halloween this year as a Star Wars creature. She isn’t new to dressing up as Star Wars characters — only last year did she parade around in a Hoth Wampug costume. This might be the nerdiest thing I’ve heard of lately, but I’m in love with it. Just look at the way Chubbs scurries across the Tatooine plains in this magnificent costume.

A golden nugget of information — I am in love with elephants. Anyone who knows me well enough will also know about my secret passion for these softhearted beasts. They have such sweet souls and the cheekiest of bums. So naturally, when I saw this video of a baby elephant getting rescued, my heart broke into little pieces (and then reassembled with joy.) Its been a wide-range of emotions kind of morning.
The video shows the amazing crew of Amboseli Trust for Elephants rescuing an eight-month-old calf from a hole in the ground. The woman featured in the video does some sort of wild elephant call to push the baby’s mother away from the scene. Funny but not so funny, these passionate animal rescuers made the video that much more thrilling. At least now I know how to rescue a baby elephant should the opportunity arise. (It will.)
