Dog's Ferocious Flatulence Has Internet In Stitches: ‘Fart Of The Day’

A dog has become an internet sensation for his constant habit of unleashing ferocious flatulence while striking a yoga pose. Rowland, a Great Dane, has gained the adoration of fans online after his owner shared a series of videos detailing the pooch’s “Fart of the day”. “I think Roland brings joy to people with his interesting talent,” owner Nicki Deutsch, 48, told Jam Press of her doggo’s odiferous wind-breaking, which she documents on a TikTok page called “ rolandthefartingdog ”. One of the clips which can be found here has over 5.7 million views and shows the black-and-white pooch adopting a downward dog pose with his front paws down while rumping high in the air. He then lets loose so loud it could’ve been a sound effect in a movie. Deutsch, who’s a stay-at-home mom, adopted Roland in 2020. One year later, the pooch fell mysteriously ill, whereupon doctors later discovered that the Dane had eaten a cat toy, which apparently affected his gut something fierce. “The toy was blocking

Man Teaches Dog How To Drive On Farm In Hamilton, Victoria

An Australian farmer has taught his dog how to drive on a farm in Hamilton, Victoria. Cameron Zschech, 21, told ABC he was on his family’s land in Hamilton moving sheep one day when he thought “now is the time I could teach the dog to drive”. In a video posted here on Facebook, Cameron was able to teach Lexie, a Jack Russell Terrier, how to help out with jobs after climbing behind the wheel. Cameron who relied on the same method his dad used while teaching him how to drive, said he put the vehicle in first gear, and then “let it idle along” as Lexie steered. “I thought ‘if we’ve got that much time, we might as well give Lexie a go’”, he said. She went alright. Lexie thinks she’s a sheep dog. She’s got the right attitude for the role but her size lets her down. “She’s about one-tenth the size of a ewe… but is completely unaware of her tiny size.” The dog’s promotion to driver came after she was injured as a puppy on the farm. “There was an 80kg ewe and Lexie took off after it and it

Woman Quits £100k Job To Live In Van With Her Dog: ‘This Lifestyle Is So Much Cheaper’

After spending eight years at a Big Four firm, a woman in her late twenties, has quit a £100k-a-year job to live in a seven-metre-long van with her pet chihuahua. Dominique Niemandt, 29, a former director at a London accounting firm was inspired by a desire to break out of her day-to-day routine. She forked out £25,000 to buy a converted VW Crafter and is now travelling around Europe with her one-year-old pet dog Kevin. She says she now feels “so much freer and so much more like me.” “Before I felt like I was in a hamster wheel for so long. I just thought there must be more to life. I used to work 60 or 70 hour weeks. On holiday I would be the loser working in the corner. I sort of felt like I didn't have a choice,” she said. Dominique was living in London and earning more than £100,000 a year before resigning. Now, she's living off savings and considering taking up a consulting role for a few months of the year to fund her way of life. Dominique said: “This lifestyle is so muc

Rare Deep-sea Dragonfish Captured On Camera Off California Coast

A rare deep-sea dragonfish has been spotted off the coast of northern California. The highfin dragonfish identified scientifically as Bathophilus flemingi was captured on video by a team of researchers in Monterey Bay, California. Named after the mythical creature, the torpedo-shaped fish is a predator that roams the depths of the ocean. Highfin dragonfish can grow up to 16.5cm in length and has long thin rays for fins. Scientists think the wing-like filaments can detect vibrations and can alert the fish of oncoming predators and prey. The deep-sea creature uses a sit-and-wait tactic in which it hangs motionless in midwater and waits for unsuspecting crustaceans and fish to feed on, according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). It also uses a bioluminescent filament that extends from its chin. “It uses that to attract prey that see the spot of glowing light and get drawn to it because they think it’s something small enough that they can eat,” Bruce Robison, a seni

San Antonio Angler Catches 9.5-foot Tiger Shark With The Help Of A Flying Drone

A San Antonio angler used an unmanned drone in his battle against a 9.5-foot tiger shark over the weekend in Port Aransas, a Texas beach town about 20 miles east of Corpus Christi. Michael Ploch told My San Antonio that he used a drone to drop his baited hook into the ocean hundreds of yards offshore. Once he hooked the creature, he ran his rod down to the beach and reeled it in for two hours. “It was exhausting but exciting to catch one of my bucket list sharks,” Ploch told My San Antonio. “I have been saltwater fishing for the last five years, but have been grateful to learn a lot of pointers from local fishermen that helped me land this fish.” Video of the catch shows Ploch posing with the shark on the beach with his friend, Patrick Reyes. Ploch measured the shark at 9.5 feet before releasing it. Tiger sharks are among the largest and commonly reach length of 10 to 14 feet, according to the Florida Museum .  They can be found in the Gulf of Mexico, North American beaches, and part

This Cat's Reaction To Toasted Bread Has Internet In Stitches

A viral clip showing a cat fighting a piece of toasted baguette has left viewers in stitches. The video posted to Reddit by u/AzulaOblongata, has so far reached almost 35,000 upvotes and garnered over 400 comments. In the video below, which features a caption that says “I was told to this sub might like my silly girl,” shows a cat trying to defend herself from a somehow threatening piece of toasted bread that the owner left on the bed for her. In the video the woman can be heard reassuring the cat, whose name is Gallifrey, that it's just a piece of bread, but the very suspicious cat won't give in and just keeps fighting with it until she knocks it off. Some other users focused on the fact that there's going to be breadcrumbs on the bed, and that's gross. One user, CFM5680, said: “What kind of monster eats toasted bread in their bed. I'm itchy just thinking about it.” And MrSpreadsheets added: “Disgusting behavior... so many crumbs on that bed and eventually floor.

9 Dog Breeds That Live The Longest Named In New Study

Jack Russell Terriers are the longest-living dogs, a new study of more than 30,000 dogs from 18 breeds has found. Research conducted by the Royal Veterinary College found that the average life expectancy for dogs in the UK varies massively between breeds. While the average life expectancy for dogs is 11.2 years, some breeds like Jack Russell Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier, and border collie tend to live longer. The findings discovered that Jack Russell Terriers have an average life expectancy of 12.7 years, while French Bulldogs trail with the shortest life expectancy of just 4.5 years. “The dog life tables offer new insights and ways of looking at the life expectancy in pet dogs,” Dr Kendy Tzu-yun Teng, who led the study, tells MailOnline . “They are also strong evidence of compromised health and welfare in short, flat-faced breeds, such as French Bulldog and Bulldog.” Elsewhere in the study, the team also found that female dogs tend to live an average of four months longer than male dog

Georgia’s department of natural resources announced that three bald eagles that have died in the state tested positive with bird flu and that other eagle carcasses are being checked.
