It’s always really sad when an old beautiful tree dies on my land and then needs to be cut down. After the tree is cut down and any dangerous areas that could potentially fall on someone are removed a left over stump sits there on the ground. Not only is it a reminder of the loss of the majestic tree but it can be pretty a big eye sore.

A married couple faced this exact scenario with an unsightly stump right smack in the front of their yard, after her husband chopped the old dead tree down. They were faced with a dilemma. To they bring somebody in to remove the left over stump or maybe come up with something imaginative in it’s place

In the footage below, the man’s wife decided to come up with one of the most creative, magical and charming idea for that eye-sore of a stump.  Knowing that her husband is great with his hand woodworking and cutting with a saw she knew her vision could be executed in just a short time.

She explained her idea to her husband who was surprisingly super excited to get started on the project.  In the video below she takes us through each step and all the materials (which she clarifies are all very cheap and affordable), and were bought at the local Lowe’s hardware and the Dollar Store in their town, that went into this magical and whimsical creation.

Together the couple transformed an unsightly stump into a creative, beautiful and inviting ‘Tree Stump House For Gnomes’. It really adds such a nice pleasant piece of wooden art that gives their front yard some amazing character.  All their family and friends want one to and love coming over to check out the magical little Gnome house.  It gives them pleasure each day and has been enjoyed by friends and neighbors alike.

Tiny Bulldog Puppy Attempts To Wake Up His Mama. But Can’t So He Throws A Temper Tantrum.

Young little baby dogs are oftentimes just as fussy and adorable as their human counterparts. In fact, infant children and puppies share lots of major attributes and behaviors in common. Both absolutely love to eat, sleep, poop, and play, a lot! Usually it’s their mom who they look to for food, a good cleaning, or a snuggle buddy. Just like human mothers, dog mamas have a lot of work to do and it’s exhausting. Sometimes mom needs to rest and relax and when she does, don’t bother her!

One baby English Bulldog didn’t get the memo to let sleeping dogs lie. The little rascal came calling to his mom’s bedside for a play buddy and while he tried his best to wake her up, she was not responding to his cute little growls and aggressive play biting. Even when he jumped up on her smushy, wrinkly, sleepy face she didn’t move an inch!

All that the little Bulldog puppy wanted was to have some fun and be entertained but he was getting nowhere in his attempts to wake his mom from her deep slumber. Thankfully for both of them a nice French Bulldog was nearby waiting in the wings for his own chance to score a play buddy. He took the puppy’s focus off of mom and by the end of the clip everyone was happy and got what they wanted.

If you’re like many people and just can’t get enough of Bulldogs then you have to check this clip out. You’re also not alone because they rank among the most popular dog breeds in the world. In America they come in fourth overall among pet dogs, according to the American Kennel Club’s 2015 dog registration numbers.

With their adorable, wrinkly, cute little faces and mushed noses, it’s hard not to fall in love with them. Not to mention, they have a very friendly and sweet nature that is not aggressive so it’s easy to see why Bulldogs are so beloved all over the world.

Watch This Strange Wolf Mouse Howling At The Moon

Grasshopper wolf mice are not the typical, low key, breadcrumb-eating type of mice you imagine when thinking about the furry little rodents. If anything they are quite the opposite; loud, aggressive, and carnivorous. The video clip from National Geographic shows one of the mice howling at the moon as if it were a wolf. At the 24 second mark the mouse raises up on his rear paws, perfectly set against the moon in the background.

He throws back his head, raises his nose in the air, then lets out an eerie, high pitched noise called a “howl.” The sound is his way of protecting and staking his territory and it also typically occurs once they have killed something. That is the reason why the noise is called a “howl” and why the rodents are also known as howling wolf mice.

The peculiar species of mice calls the southern desert areas of the United States, as well as northern Mexico, home. They are extremely territorial and work hard to protect large tracts of land, averaging 28 acres, from other rival Grasshopper mice.

They can be found stalking their prey with a technique that is best described as cat-like, since they hunt by quietly sneaking up on their victims and quickly pounce when they go in for the kill (source: Wikipedia). These types of hunting skills are necessary for their survival since their diet is mainly carnivorous and they prey upon poisonous snakes, scorpions, and tarantulas whose poisonous stings or bites they are immune to.

To supplement those meals they eat various types of insects, worms, grasshoppers, beetles, and even other mice. Not only are they immune to the otherwise lethal venom of scorpions, they also use the venom of certain types as a painkiller.

Their brains get tricked by the venom and in turn will switch off pain receptors in their bodies, which gives them a huge survival advantage.

All in all, the humble little Grasshopper mouse is not something you’d want to mess with. They are tough as nails and more than well adapted to their environment, which is one of the least hospitable on Earth.

Rescued Chimp Who Spent His Entire Life In a Lab Is Released Outside For The First Time

image via :

Although animal testing on Chimpanzees has provided life-changing medical breakthroughs for human beings, the unfortunate reality for these animals is that they live out their lives caged and deprived of a natural existence.

When in captivity, they never went outside or socialized with their peers; essentially they were prisoners for scientific purposes. Their restriction from experiencing anything normal is simply heartbreaking. Finally, the “Humane Society of the United States” are now actively rescuing 1000’s of these aging chimps, some of whom are 50 years of age.

What you will view in the video you are about to watch below, is some of their first experiences of freedom, at Chimp Haven. As it would be unsafe for them to be let out into the wild at their age, this sanctuary will allow them to explore nature and form social bonds that were never possible before.

The footage is so beautifully filmed; you see these older “folks” socializing in such gentle and curious ways; the moment that you see one of the 100 chimps released, get his first view of the sky, is breathtaking.

Although nothing can make up for their imprisoned lab conditions, the fact that they will be able to enjoy the rest of their lives in this natural habitat is heartwarming.

A Great Recipe To Make a Delicious Crock Pot Lasagna

Moving can be extremely stressful in more ways than one, especially for our animal companions. When they first step foot into their new home it’s both exciting and terrifying all at once and they can quickly become overwhelmed by the experience. That’s because a new house is full of different types of strange smells, unfamiliar sights, and sometimes there are even new rules that pets have to get used to, like no going on the couch or upstairs.

Our four-legged friends often need a little extra time and space to process and become accustomed to their new surroundings. Once they settle in after a bit, it’s as if they’ve always lived there. It’s always interesting to see how animals approach and explore their new digs, especially dogs.

Compared to cats, they’re quicker, more animated, and much less cautious. A dog will run around sniffing out every single nook and cranny they come across, whereas cats run and hide under furniture. Some dogs will even run and jump straight into the new swimming pool, which is exactly how one adorable puppy named Christy reacted when she saw that her new house came with an in-ground pool in the backyard!

When the little snow-white West Highland Terrier caught her first glimpse of the pool, all her attention immediately was focused on getting outside to see it up close. Christy happily spun in circles, jumped up on the screen, and barked in delight at the awesome new upgrade in her life.

She was so excited that her little tail was wagging back and forth at a hundred miles an hour and when the door finally slid open she wasted no time and bolted right outside. She went full speed straight ahead without hesitating even the slightest bit and jumped right into the water like a champion! she ended up in the pool! She didn’t hesitate in the slightest and jumped right into the water like a champion.

As soon as she ended up in the pool Christy looked like she was on cloud nine as she swam around blissfully, nipping here and there at the water. The excited pup doggy paddled over to the stairs, got out, and ran to the other end of the pool to jump in and do it all over again.

After watching this little Terrier’s reaction, it’s safe to assume that she will be very happy in her new home. Now that she has a pool to go swimming in whenever she’d like, she’s probably already forgotten about the previous place she used to live.

Check out her unbelievably joyful reaction and share it with anyone who may need a smile!
