Watching 5 paralyzed dogs play fetch using wheelchairs will make you almost as happy as they are

German dog lover Gritta Götz takes her pack of dogs out for a walk in the country. Nothing too unusual about that…except that five of them have wheels for back legs.

You’ll soon see, though, that this hardly holds them back at all…

This determined little flower girl had no wedding to be in, but she didn’t let that stop her

July 16, 2014 | No comments

After Annabelle Earl recently learned from her babysitter’s daughter what a flower girl is, she wanted to be one. Unfortunately, no one in her family’s circle is getting married in the foreseeable future.

So what to do? How were 4-year-old Annabelle’s flower-girl dreams going to come true?

Then Mom had an idea. People get married down at city hall all the time, and since most of these people are going to be having rather sparse weddings ceremonially speaking, they would be in need of…you guessed it…a flower girl.

So Annabelle got dressed up in her nicest dress and went shopping for a flower girl’s most important accessory…

Kid puts a sign up for a front-yard piano concert, hundreds show up in the rain (including me)

July 14, 2014 | 3 comments

Last week, an 8-year-old boy in Minneapolis put a simple sign in his yard about a piano concert he wanted to put on…

Piano Concert 5

Dylan worked hard to promote his concert, standing in his front yard to tell any passerby who would listen to come. His neighbor thought it would be fun to get a few of his friends to come surprise Dylan with a bigger crowd and started a Facebook page for the event.

Word quickly spread beyond Thomas’s friends and eventually, a photo of Dylan’s sign found its way onto Reddit. That’s where I found out about it.

Browsing Reddit aimlessly on Friday night, I stumbled across a post at the top of /r/pics that said,

A kid near me put this sign up. Hundreds of people on facebook now plan to attend. We hope to blow his mind.

I clicked on the post to read the comments, hoping for more information about the concert so I could follow up later to see how it went. I was surprised to find that Dylan’s little front yard concert would be happening just minutes from my house.

I had to go.

July 11, 2014 | No comments

Little Kayden was born with a disease that unfortunately caused his leg to need to be amputated this past January. But now he has a prosthetic leg and a walker.

As he tries his walker for the first time, you can tell the he has the attitude to get through this ordeal. About a minute in, his mom asks him if he’s got it. I think you’ll agree with him that he most certainly does…

With a 2-year-old and 4-month-old at home, Wes turned his attention outside of work to a more creative venture, taking whimsical pictures of his boys. His photographs have garnered enough attention that he’s started a side business doing newborn photography for others.

Fun-loving photographer entertains wife and kids with ridiculous photo-caricatures [20 pics]

July 10, 2014 | No comments

If you’ve ever sat in front of a Mac playing with the silly effects in Photo Booth, you know how fun it can be to see how ridiculous you can make your and your family’s faces look. It turns out that if you are a pro photographer with impressive Photoshopping chops, you can take it to the next hilarious level…

After several years as an artist in the video game industry, Bert McLendon decided he wanted to get into something that would allow him to see the results of his labor sooner than the 5 years games often took to finish. So he switched to photography.

But your standard picture-snapping still wasn’t quite interesting enough for him. So, on the side, he took up photographic caricaturing “to make my wife and kids laugh.”

It seems to be working. Not only is his family amused, thousands of people on the internet are, too…
