With all of the devastating tragedy we've seen occur this week, I think we can all use something to brighten our day. Luckily, I found the perfect remedy in a photo that is spreading like wildfire on the Internet today. It captures the incredibly sweet moment in which two toddlers who didn't even know each other stopped and hugged each other in middle of an airport! Yes, for no apparent reason.
Paul Templer was a 27-year-old river guide in Zimbabwe when he was swallowed by a hippo. The hungry (hungry) hippo attack happened 17 years ago when Templer was leading a kayak tour down the Zambezi River and probably had more to do with the hippo being territorial than actually hungry. His story is unbelievable!Continue Reading >
A woman in Oklahama City was left shocked and horrified this past weekend after the dog she was caring for carried a dead newborn baby girl home in its mouth.
The pet, named Luke, was being watched by a house-sitter while his unidentified owner was out of town. At around 8 a.m. on Saturday, the dog was let out and returned with something in his mouth, which he placed by the woman's feet. When she went to investigate what it was, she found a three to five pound dead baby wrapped in plastic!
Can you imagine anything more terrifying?Continue Reading >
Puppies are always cute and cuddly, but sometimes, they can also be downright hilarious.
Take for example, little Pacino.
In the super funny video below, viewers can see him sitting on the kitchen floor as his owners try to teach him how to catch a toy. As he waits for the woman to throw it his way, Pacino stares at her with fierce intensity. You can practically hear him thinking "I can do this, I can do this, I can do this." He even leans his whole little body forward in anticipation!
But alas, when the big moment comes, he eyes, leaps ... and falls completely backwards. Haha, awww! Have you ever seen anything cuter in your life? Well, at least he tried!
Check out Pacino's best efforts and 4 other adorably hilarious puppy fails below:Continue Reading >
In just a few short months, my son will be 1 year old. The time has flown by and while I still feel like a very new mom, I think I might be stripped of that title once my son hits the walking stage and a brand-new crop of babies makes its arrival. I guess it's warranted considering there is no longer much that can shock me about babies. The biggest lesson I've learned is that babies and parenting are totally unpredictable and uncontrollable entities. Here are some wacky new-mom moments that threw me for a loop, but are hilarious now:Continue Reading >
Today is Love Your Pet Day! That means it's the perfect time to show some love to your dog, cat, hamster, or whatever furry (or non-furry) friends you have in your family! And since all of us here at MamásLatinas are big animal lovers (see my obssessive rants about why you should just get your kid a dog already), we decided to celebrate the holiday by introducing you to each of our own pets--from pooches like my own two dogs to kitties and even a snake!
Meet the MamásLatinas pet family below!
It's hard to recover after a long holiday weekend. If you're experiencing an afternoon slump post-President's Day like I am, I have the perfect antidote--the hilarious video below, which stars an adorable but cowardly penguin! Trust me, watching it will definitely bring a smile to your face.
In the clip, a cute penguin stands at the edge of a diving board at a zoo and looks into the water where some of his friends are swimming. But every time it seems like he's about to take the plunge, the poor little guy chickens out, turns around and runs back off the diving board. Aww!Continue Reading >
Many people tend to perceive pit bulls as dangerous, but a 10-year-old pit bull named Baby is being hailed as a hero after helping her owners escape a house fire. It all happened on Tuesday morning when Rhonda Westenberger and her sister, Evelyn, were sound asleep when suddenly their Wellston, Oklahoma home began to fill with flames. Baby immediately began to bark and nudge at the two until they finally woke up and escaped the fire.Continue Reading >
Recently, we've met a few dogs with some pretty impressive talents. From the car-driving canines to the pups who talk to each other via Skype, it seems like dogs are quickly catching up with humans in some areas. But I think my favorite of these skilled pooches has to be the adorable Yorkie in the video below, who can walk on his two front legs!
After his owners put little boots on his two back paws, Lou is obviously trying to figure out how to move in them. Unsure of what to do, he starts balancing on his front legs and walking forward as if doing a handstand ... and lucky for us, the hilarious results were all caught on tape!Continue Reading >
Needing a good laugh right about now? Look no further 'cause I've got a video that is sure to put a smile on your face--and it stars an adorable little pit bull puppy named Bandit!
Bandit is currently being looked after by Peace, Love and Pitbulls, an organization dedicated to reducing the number of pit bull in shelters. Part of the group's care involves making sure the pooches get plenty of exercise, which they do by having the adult canines walk on treadmills. But as can be seen in this hilarious clip, little Bandit seems to think he is ready to run with the big dogs!Continue Reading >
