This is Dennis the Dachshund and as you can see he is way too fat! He is from Columbus, Ohio and currently weighs 56 pounds. That is about 5 times as much as a normal Dachshund. He was neglected by his owner and was on a diet consisting of mainly fast food.
He could barely walk without having to stop and catch his breath. Eventually his owner gave up on him and he was given to an animal shelter. Luckily for Dennis, a new owner took him in and she put him on a healthy diet, and began playing with him daily to help him shed the weight.
As a result Dennis eventually had to have surgery to take care of all of his excess skin. Today Dennis is at a healthy 12 pounds! Image Source: Screenshot/facebook/2015
I am not familiar with bears, but the sight of such a massive creature must make your blood freeze. There are many ways, of which most are lies, of how to react when you run into a bear. Some say you need to lie down and curl up into a helpless little ball of nothing or just run as fast as you can. This man, in Sweden, did something totally different.
He successfully scared off a charging bear by shouting at it and spreading his arms, to appear much bigger. I have never seen anything alike. Nevertheless, it probably saved the couple’s life. This video footage was captured by the man’s wife. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2015.
A loggerhead turtle which was injured after a collision with a boat, has received a new 3D printed beak. The turtle named Akut-3 weighs around 45kg and was brought to the Sea Turtle Research
Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Dalyan, Turkey. It was here where the Turtle was nursed back to health and staff quickly realised that her injured jaw needed to be rebuilt. The help center contacted the Turkish company BTech Innovation, which usually only makes customized medical prosthetics and implants for humans, for help.
Eager to help the injured reptile the company took on the challenge and produced a brand new metal jaw for the turtle. If the body does not reject the prosthetic, it will soon be returned to the sea. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2015
A video has gone viral in which a local Starbuck manager seems to go crazy and starts yelling at a customer. The whole scene has happened in Queens New York and according to the YouTube description things got weird after a customer ordered a Frappucino and a cookie straw.
A customer named Chen tried to pay with the Starbucks app on her phone and did not hear the employee ask for her name to put on the cup. Which, if you are a frequent user of Starbucks you will know this, is a common procedure.
Things are currently not too clear, but it seems this is what set it all off and where the location manager started to yell. Chen reported the incident to Starbucks’ corporate headquarters who then allegedly fired the location manager. What do you think did they react correctly or did they overreact?
