A Little Girl Left Her Stuffed Animal At An Airport And It Went On Quite An Adventure

A Little Girl Left Her Stuffed Animal At An Airport And It Went On Quite An Adventure

Remember your beloved stuffed animal, the one you slept with, and dressed up, and dragged around everywhere until it basically disintegrated? Perhaps it survived your childhood and still sits on a shelf, as a beloved reminder of a more innocent time. Or maybe you lost it somewhere, and it was never returned. That’s what happened to my poor stuffed Lamby. Yes, it was a stuffed lamb, who I still think about occasionally. Lamby, where are you?!

I’ll never know. One little girl named Gussie was saved from this devastation after leaving her favorite stuffed animal at the Norfolk Airport. Her mother, Kelly Bridges, wrote on Facebook that not only did the airport find the stuff animal, Cookie Dough, they made Gussie a special surprise: a little book showing all its adventures out on the town.

Bridges wrote: “Guys…Gussie lost her ‘Cookie Dough’ favorite stuffed animal at the airport last week. I called the airport to let them know, and they called us later to say they found it! She went to pick it up today and they gave her this book and I about cried. Norfolk International Airport, you all are awesome.”

The booklet showed Gussie not only that it was ok for her to lose her stuffed animal, but that Cookie Dough was having the time of its life.

It met some stuffed friends, checked the weather, and sampled some coveted airport merch:

Then, Cookie Dough went for a spin in a very nice car, and even got to ride on the dashboard, though it missed Gussie the whole time.

Cookie Dough even tested out some bigger cars, and got all dressed up for the job. It even met some really nice members of the rescue squad.

Cookie Dough got recruited to work as a police bear for a day, which seems like a big responsibility.

And even got to drive some fancy, airport-only vehicles:

Cookie Dough learned how to self-check for a flight, which, as we all know, is a very important skill:

image

Cookie Dough also adventured in ways a kid definitely shouldn’t. Stuffed animals have more leeway for stunts, though.

image

And Cookie Dough got snacks!

image

The stuffed dog took a really extensive tour of all the airport areas most of us never get to see:

image

Then almost got recruited again, this time for a different role:

But it was finally time to say goodbye to all its new friends and go home to Gussie:

image

Like everybody, Cookie Dough did experience some down time at the airport, but waiting around is part of the experience.

image

The booklet was made specifically by the Norfolk Airport Police, which makes me think that this may be the safest airport in America. 

They seem to have a lot of time on their hands:

image

And they used it to make one little girl very, very happy:

But Cookie Dough: don’t go wandering aimlessly again.

An Animal Shelter Turned A Chewed Up Dog Toy Into A Murder Mystery

Wisconsin animal shelter Fox Valley Humane Association is the host to an adorable chocolate lab named Hank, who is in love with his favorite toy, a stuffed animal named Fuzzy Purple Hippo.

That love was put in serious jeopardy, however, earlier this month, when Fuzzy Purple Hippo was discovered one morning with serious injuries. Animal shelter employees feared the worst: ATTEMPTED MURDER.

Luckily, Fuzzy Purple Hippo survived.

But the investigation into Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s apparent assault continued.

Fuzzy Purple Hippo, meanwhile, went to see a therapist. 

But even after Hank’s arrest, protesters asserted that the adorable four-year-old dog was innocent.

Investigators began to study the case further.

And what they found surprised everyone. Hank was not only innocent—he had been trying to save Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s LIFE!

Fuzzy Purple Hippo and Hank will presumably live happily ever after in their new family, but if you want to support the other critters living at Fox Valley, you can donate to the organization through its website.

Britain's New Bank Note Contains Animal Fat And Vegans Aren't Happy

The United Kingdom recently released a new £5 note with new security measures to try and put a stop to counterfeiters. But recently, a rumor started that the polymer of the note contained traces of tallow, a hard fatty substance made from rendered animal fat, often used in candles and soap. 

The Bank of England, the UK’s central bank, confirmed the suspicions on Twitter when asked by a vegan if the claims were accurate. 

And this realization hasn’t gone down well with the vegans of Twitter.

While others were quick to criticize those that were outraged.

A petition calling on the Bank of England to come up with a new design that doesn’t contain tallow has so far attracted 55,000 signatures.

689021529804b3a77e8194458266905e

The petition, started by Doug Maw, reads:

“The new £5 notes contain animal fat in the form of tallow. This is unacceptable to millions of vegans, vegetarians, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and others in the U.K.” 

“We demand that you cease to use animal products in the production of currency that we have to use.” 

What do you think should happen?

These 3-Piece Animal Rings Let You Rock Your Favorite Wildlife In Style

I’m not the biggest fan of jewelry. I find it kind of useless to deck yourself out in a bunch of little trinkets and stuff for seemingly no reason. Yeah, I guess it looks nice and all that, but the idea of having a bunch of superfluous stuff hanging off of me is annoying enough. I don’t even like wearing too many clothes, let alone hanging a bunch of metal or leather off my body that doesn’t need to be there.

However, I’ll concede that there are some people who can rock a good piece of jewelry and make it look amazing. But most of that is because the person rocking said jewelry is responsible for it being so awesome.

With these cool 3-piece animal rings, however, I don’t think you need to be cool at all. Hell, you could be Jon Lovitz from The Wedding Singer and they’d still look good.

Like this sleepy little sloth just chilling on your finger. “Ayo, don’t move them digits, B.”

These aren’t the official names of these products, in case you thought I was being entirely serious – because I wasn’t.

Doesn’t change the fact that they’re pretty awesome, though.

32 Animals Taking A Break Because Being An Animal Is Hard

I used to have a dog that would sleep for around twenty hours a day. The remaining four hours were spent looking for a good space to sleep. He would normally settle for the same spot where he always slept. 

My family and I would always wonder what he was doing that was so exhausting. Being a dog sounds like a pretty sweet gig. 

As it turns out all animals need to sleep. (Who could have guessed?) So we have collected some of the best sleepers. Please enjoy. I am going to take a nap.
