Firefighter Saves Dying Dog Using CPR…Here’s What The Lucky Pup Looks Like Now!

We’ve all seen movies and TV shows that demonstrate how effective CPR is for humans.

When someone’s heart stops, it’s the first thing medical professionals do to save them. There’s also CPR for dogs, but successfully reviving animals using it is very rare. That’s what makes the story of a brave Romanian firefighter and the pooch he saved so special.

Costache Mugurel found the pup completely still on the sidewalk after his owner was taken to the hospital with serious injuries caused by a fire. Both had suffered from smoke inhalation.

Mugurel gave the dog chest compressions, mouth-to-mouth, and an oxygen mask, hoping to save his life.

var _informq = _informq || []; _informq.push([’embed’, ‘ndn_5854b28a53ea2’]);

He still has a long way to go, but vets posted a video of the dog lounging in his crate and recovering!

I’m so glad there’s a happy ending, and I hope this pupper gets to go home to his owner soon. Share his journey with others who will love this daring rescue.

The Actors Who Played The Lost Boys In ‘Hook’ Pay Tribute To Robin Williams

A little over two years ago, the comedic force of nature that was Robin Williams passed away.

He was a man who brought endless amounts of joy and entertainment to the world, but in the end, the fight against his own personal demons became too much to bear. That was when this planet lost a truly brilliant soul.

Twenty-five years after Williams flew onto the silver screen as Peter Pan in “Hook,” the Lost Boys from the 1991 Steven Spielberg classic reunited for a trip down memory lane and paid tribute to the late actor.

Growing up, “Hook” was one of my favorite movies, so it’s incredibly reassuring to know that the feeling of warmth and love that came through the screen as I watched it wasn’t an act. Robin Williams was simply that wonderful. He may be gone, but he’ll never be forgotten.

17 Kids Who Really, Really Hate Their Christmas Presents

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…unless you’re on the receiving end of some pretty horrible Christmas gifts.

Christmas is the day that many children of all ages look forward to the most. Can you blame them, though? Who doesn’t love getting gifts?

But after they’ve anticipated Santa’s arrival and struggled to fall asleep on Christmas Eve, they feel intense sadness if they awake to find a less-than-perfect gift under the tree. Maybe it’s the wrong color or they already have it, or maybe it’s something they never wanted in the first place.

Regardless of what exactly sent these kids into Christmastime meltdowns, you have to admit that it’s pretty hilarious to see kids absolutely lose their marbles over their presents.

1. That face says it all.

2. “What the heck? Who would need this?”

3. What was she going to do with ALL the bicycles anyways?

Disney Always Makes Kids Smile, But What They Did For Her Is Something Special

When it comes to bringing joy to kids everywhere, Disney reigns supreme.

From the movies to the parks to the incredible cruises, the folks over at Disney know a thing or two about bringing fantasy worlds to life. Millions of people flock to the company’s many attractions each year, and they come back again and again to fill their children’s minds with memories that’ll last a lifetime.

But the Mansfield family was a little bit unsure of how their Disney World experience would be. Because they’re deaf and rely on sign language to communicate, these parents worried that their little ones would miss out on all of that Disney magic, since their oldest daughter also has hearing impairments. Much to their surprise, however, something incredible kept happening as they made their way around the park.

It’s this level of customer care and compassion that has made Disney a global institution. Inclusivity is so important, and more major companies should take that to heart. The smiles on these adorable faces say it all.

Just wait ’til he touches her nose!

This may be the world’s most helpful cat.

The 11 Most Irritating People You’ll See Around The Thanksgiving Table This Year

It’s that wonderful time of year again when we get to stuff our faces and sit down to a nice Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of extremely annoying people.

For most of us, there’s usually at least one person at the table who can’t reel in their obnoxious behavior or keep their opinions to themselves — which is exactly why the liquor store is always packed the night before.

While we can’t force our loved ones to act appropriately on Turkey Day (or any other day), at least we can share a few laughs about their utter ridiculousness together. Here are 11 people you’re bound to rub elbows with on Thursday.

1. The host who flies around doing everything except joining the table and eating.

Poor Grandma! She Was Just Trying To Put Her Grandson To Bed When She Took A Tumble

I make no secret of my clumsiness. I fall all the time!

It’s just how some of us are wired. When Nikki Sharp Bishop’s mom tried to put Bishop’s son to bed, she really took the cake for the most hilarious and embarrassing fall ever. Bishop wrote on Facebook, “My mom is going to kill me but I had to post. For those of you who don’t know my mom she is 5ft and has always been vertically challenged. I love this crazy woman!”

She steps up on a stool, then leans over too far and topples straight into the crib!
