There might be a fair number of people out there who can connect with this mastiff's admirable level of commitment to complete an agility course, even though the dude might not exactly be built to tackle this kind of competition. Well, hey, that didn't stop him from leaving it all out there.

They say not to approach seals at the beach, but when one comes up and wants to hang out, there's not a lot you can do to keep it away. This guy has somehow acquired the mystical animal magnetism of a Disney Princess, and we're jealous. That or he smells like food.

Employee Gets Pet Fox, Big Stink Ensues, Boss Calls Her Out, She Complains

Something is awry in this scenario. Of course, people should be encouraged to embrace whatever pet they've chosen to add to their home. Even if it's something atypical like a pet fox. But if you decide to roll with the fox for your pet, it sounds like you've got to go the extra mile to ensure that you're not carrying around that fox's stink with you wherever you go. Unfortunately, this employee assumed a defensive stance when she was called out.

Most of us have endured those moments at work where we've been tasked with infuriatingly mindless, nonsensical tasks that effortlessly make use question the meaning of our existence. It can be exceedingly difficult to just give yourself over to the experience, and make the most out of it. Well, this guy could serve as an inspiration of sorts to all of us. He left it all on the field, and then some, man. I wouldn't be surprised if he thought he was a cat at one point during this Oscarworthy performance.

The good news is that the baby deer looks like it's fine. With that being said, that must've been quite the shock for the poor little guy. Gotta be careful when you're busy running around out there, buddy!

Crocodiles probably don't make the best pets on account of the lifeless eyes and crushing bite strength, but at least we can watch this and imagine having one on a leash. It is kinda funny how she just pops her head up like that.

You go, Dethan. We're not exactly sure what words of wisdom you spewed on your journey to secure that glorious treat, but we're absolutely here for it, man. Maybe he only wanted three cookies. Maybe we're dealing with a tragic case of miscommunication. Hopefully not.

Twitter Thread: Woman Returns Home, Finds Raccoon In Bedroom

Haily Lliff had quite the scare when she returned home from a trip to New York. As it turns out a raccoon had made of a bit of an entrance, and then just decided to post up for a while. While the event itself is surprising already, it's also pretty wild that a couple other folks were keen on sharing their own experiences with raccoons breaking into their homes.

Clearly, this gopher was just trying to get his work done for the day. Unfortunately (or fortunately for us), the pit bull had other plans in mind. I just love how calmly he continues to pester that gopher. The fact that things don't seem to escalate into any kind of dangerous situation is nice too. Just a couple pals muddling through a simple miscommunication problem.

What is that? Some kind of deer thing? Whatever it is it sounds exactly like a smoke alarm that's low on batteries at 2 am. You know that moment, when you've been ripped out of your one good dream by the chirp of that stupid dumb idiot disk way up on your ceiling? Now you're trying to find a chair in the dark just so you can shut this stupid thing off. Why do smoke alarms even exist?

Yeah, probably some type of deer.

People Who Had To Choose Between Partners and Pets

It's a not-unheard-of occurrence in relationships: "either the dog goes or I go." People who set this kind of ultimatum often have a very uninformed view on how much people like their pets. If the cat has been around for 10 years and you've been around for 3 months, don't expect an outcome in your favor. That said, pets aren't always stoic beacons of morality. For example here's Prancer, the irredeemable dog and these pets who shamelessly wrecked stuff.

Friendly Cat Brings Neighbors Together

Cats are wonderful creatures. More often than not they're busy trying to push things off the face of the earth. But other times, well, cats and their innately curious nature can end up bringing perfect strangers together. Walter just wants everyone to be friends. We appreciate that Walter. 

Funny post about a neighbor's cat communicating across the street through the window.

You've got to appreciate how the Mama Bear just encourages the little ones to have the best time of their lives, and really enjoy the moment. The video also might be that much more enjoyable for you if you go ahead and press that mute button. The commentary is just a little distracting.

Some people freeze in the face of an adrenaline-charged crisis, and others act in such a way that people and animals' lives can end up being saved. The cousin of TikToker @bakedlikepie certainly assumed the latter more admirable stance. She didn't waste any time with taking care of business. We're just glad that everyone was able to get out of that dicey situation as soon as possible. It even looks like the bear was about to climb back over that wall again. Woof.
