Dog walks on two legs (mind you, this is cute but the dog doesn't 'love' to walk like this, he does it because he needs to run and is made to walk so, in its excitement, it ends up pulling so hard that it 'lifts' his upper body)

Dairy industry
Rescuing mamas and their babies during lockdow (first link)
Rescued dairy cows, Jo (second link)
Clarabelle with the first calf she has been able to keep (third link) - personal note: dairy cows have miserable, miserable lives. They are constantly fertilized artificially and, when they have the baby, it's stolen from them. When their milk production is low (and this happens much earlier than it would in nature because they are forced to produce much more on a daily basis), they are slaughtered. And what they don't know is that the baby is put in a box, fed the wrong food so it's always hungry (grows fat) and becomes anemic (so the flesh is pale) or sent to become still another victim of the dairy industry. Humans are the most inhumane of all animals...

Ten reasons to love pigs (I stopped eating pork when I read an article about a pet pig that saved its owners life by pushing her way out of the house, walking to the road and standing there in the middle to stop a car and, when the human came out, she led him to her unconscious owner - most dogs would not have done that! Also, one of very favorite movies is Babe - I must have watched that movie 50 times :lol: ):

Owner uses key words to keep dog paying attention to story (this is cute but it is the wrong thing to do - you should never use words that have meaning to a dog out of context, it confuses them and is counterproductive to training)

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/owner ... i-BB17PVNU


They are chatting! Well, not really, it's actually a territorial warning.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/video ... i-BB17PSJZ


Guilty look? Not really, the dog is reacting to the words - and, again, it's the wrong thing to do because you should ONLY scold dogs when you catch them in the act. Any 'scolding' done without a current action only confuses them, dogs have a very short attention span.

Germany to set two walks a day minimum for dogs! They are not going to do it here in USA (pet industry too powerful and most people regard animals as objects) but they should!
