Every parent is familiar with this situation. There’s no break time for mommy and daddy when there’s a young one running around. Despite how tired they are, they’re constantly seeking our attention, and one way or another, they’re going to get it!
This rhino was enjoying a siesta when it got abruptly interrupted. Her offspring concluded that he needed some of mom’s attention and let her know by sitting on her head. She can try to keep pretending to be asleep, but kids rarely give up easily once they’ve set their minds on something!
While it has been a while since Disney's "The Lion King" was released, there are several scenes that tend to stick in everyone's mind. One scene, in particular, shows Simba tugging at his father's ear in a bid to wake him up. Just as Mufasa wasn't having it, neither is this bulldog!
This pup seems to have stolen this move directly from the famous scene, as she tugs on her dad's ear while he snoozes. Whether the pup was looking for something to nibble on or just looking for some attention, he decided that going for his dad's ear was his best option. Either way, this pappa bulldog doesn't look happy about it.
All parents recognize the look on this dog's face. It's the look that we get when we're woken up by a crying baby in the middle of the night, knowing that our day has to start in just a few hours. Knowing that we likely won't be able to get back to sleep. While those in the animal kingdom don't have to get up for work, they still have to deal with late-night feedings.
They say, "The eyes are the windows to the soul," and in this case, this dog's soul is clearly exhausted. Staring away from the camera, she just might be wondering why her human has enough time to stand around taking pictures but hasn't come to rescue her yet!
Staying Safe in Momma's Pouch
Many new moms will admit that they were more overprotective with their firstborn than they were with their others. This is likely because new parents are practically clueless and tend to be more nervous. It's not uncommon for newborns to be compared to a joey (baby kangaroo).
Immediately after a kangaroo is born, it climbs into its mother's pouch. Just the size of a jellybean, the pouch is where the joey feels safe and is able to drink its mother's milk. It's in the pouch that they're able to grow until they're large enough to take care of themselves.
We all may be guilty of booping a dog on the nose, but how many of you can say you've done that with a dog who came with its very own boop button? Very few! Some believe this pup was born with a paw-shaped birthmark after he was trampled on by his siblings in the womb, but we think it was put there for his humans to enjoy.
Completely unaware of the appeal his nose has, the pup is peacefully snoozing the day away. Unfortunately, as the pup grew, so did his nose. The separate spots in his unique birthmark eventually merged together, eliminating this one-of-a-kind feature. His dog parents certainly don't love him any less, though!
