Mishka is a “celebrity canine” who has rocketed to fame through his / her vocal talents and ability to do surprisingly good (if somewhat random) renditions of simple phrases.. as well as some very cute howling. Also – let’s be honest here – Mishka has very good looks (those eyes!)… always a useful attribute in showbiz! 😉 This is Mishka’s most famous video and has been seen over 86 million times.

Mishka is a Siberian Husky – a breed of dog that was originally bred to work as part of a team pulling sleds through wild snow regions. Nowadays, many huskies are kept as pets rather than as working dogs – though as their history is one of being working dogs, they like to run and race – and should ideally be given daily training.

There are several related arctic breeds – the Alaskan Malamute (heavier set in general), The Siberian Husky (slimmer and faster, and can sometimes have blue or even two different colored eyes), the Samoyed (white and extremely fluffy!) and the American Eskimo (also white).

Siberian Huskies are well known for howling rather than barking. They are also considered an affectionate breed and good with children – in fact the Chukchi people (Siberia) kept them as guardians and companions for children.

I think Mishka is so adorable! Would you love a dog like this? I certainly would! Let us know what you think in the comments, and please join our Facebook Page where we share the best dog pics, videos and tutorials that we find! 🙂

VIDEO: Brave Kitten Stands Up To Dog

When someone would cut you down to size, sometimes all it takes is to stand up and show some badass purrsonality! 😉 Here’s a video by TheMrhero003 of an adorable black kitten hissing and arching its back to show a Rottweiler he is messing with the wrong cat. Chained, a Rottweiler hops around in front of a little kitten and barks constantly. The kitten bends its back and holds its tail vertically, its eyes very focused on the chained dog, as a response.

Well, the kitten hoped it could have a good walk throughout the day, but the dog isn’t going to give it that quietly. The dog barked at him intimidatingly. Too bad the feline wasn’t all talk. While the dog put down its head, the kitten struck in quick movement toward the dog. Wohoo! Some guts for some cute kitten, I should say!

Cats tend to perform defensive acts when threatened or being aggressive or defensive, just like any animal does. They may also flatten their ears or puff up their tail or even attempt to increase their size by letting their back hair stand up. They definitely keep a few tricks up their sleeves.

Dogs, on the hand, can be territorial. When they perceive a threat, they will go after it, as if it were a prey. But for a domestic dog, this is not always the situation. When a kitten is around, a dog’s play instinct can come into being. More than territorial, dogs are playful. At the sight of a kitten moving, especially a new comer in the household, a dog may go after the kitten to play with it.

It looks like the Rottweiler is having fun – but we can’t quite be sure if he is just playing around, toying with kitten. After all, logic says it can just easily paw down or bite the kitten seriously. It has the size advantage to do that. One thing is certain though. The kitten couldn’t just stand still and stay cute for the dog’s sake. A dog can’t be the boss all the time when a spunky feline is around….

Ok, here is the video:

A few may be hesitant to admit it, but dogs undeniably have an indescribable charm that can even strike the mightiest of hearts of the bravest military soldiers out there. It doesn’t matter whether it belongs to the big, sturdy kind or cute, fluffy breed. For people who regard their dogs not only as a trustworthy companion but also as a best friend, a son or daughter, or a brother, it all boils down to the warmth we always feel every time our furry four-legged pals greet us eagerly home.

We smile at the sight of our dog approaching us cheerfully and wagging its tail after a day’s work. Can you even imagine how it would feel being away from home for months, devoid of the hugs, or smooches, or playful bark one gets from our dogs?

Dogs are very similar to soldiers if one would actually think about it a little more deeply. They are very loyal to their owners, as are soldiers to their country. If they have to, dogs can run at lightning speed out of the car or house just to run over his master and greet him ecstatically. They can’t contain their excitement at the sound of their master’s voice, saying, “I’m home.”

Such is showcased by a heart-warming video of dogs welcoming home their military owners. Check out the video below and see for yourself how moments of reunion with their dogs can bring about joy to soldiers separated from their best friends for months of military deployment.

A tearjerker it may seem (prepare a tissue now!), but that’s how it is: lots of affection, licks and hugs, and welcoming enthusiasm. With all the strife our soldiers may have gone through, these valiant men and women truly deserve the à la festival greeting they are getting from their dogs.
