am sorry i love dog

It's one day of the Tihar festival in Nepal! The day before is dedicated to crows, and the day after is for cows. Kukur [dog] Tihar is the best since dogs are everywhere as pets and strays. From Wikipedia:

The second day is called Kukur Tihar. It is called the Khicha Puja by the Newars. People offer garlands, tika and delicious food to dogs and acknowledge the cherished relationship between humans and dogs.

Dogs occupy a special place in Hindu mythology. As mentioned in the Mahabharata, Bhairava, a fierce manifestation of Lord Shiva, had a dog as a vahana (vehicle). Yama, the god of death, is believed to own two guard dogs – each with four eyes. The dogs are said to watch over the gates of Naraka, the Hindu concept of Hell. Owing to this belief, this day is also observed as Naraka Chaturdashi.

So, all dogs?

Little girl is gifted a teddy bear that had a voice recording of her dad who is deployed with the US army overseas.

So close to crying but she held it together. She's a tough one. I am not.


I'd be surprised if she didn't. That's pretty much what moms do. On the day I graduated high school I wrote my mom a letter thanking her and saying how much I appreciated all that she'd done for me, and literally I walked downstairs that morning and said, "I wrote you a letter" and she immediately broke down crying lol.

Anyone got the original video?

Guy proposes to his girlfriend during game

I would have gotten stuck in the costume.

Love the way she put ona big smile and started to gracefully walk off when the routine fell apart

The Bulls need to line one of these up every game, might be most exciting thing every night

Now THIS made me smile.

twins secret handshake

Twins are really lucky. It truly is a special bond.

Not sure how my friends would react if I suggested a kiss before shaking hands.

Or you can be like my twin and I. We have always been sworn enemies.

Maybe that's why they're enemies. They are competing for maximum evilness. But every time they try to duke it out once and for all, they inevitably stalemate due to perfectly symmetrical violence.

A tragic tale.

This little girl's smile is something else

See this is what this sub is about.

Not whats currently on the front page.

Nice post OP.

Such a tender moment! That’s lovely. The baby’s happiness and trust, the cozy setting—I’m so glad we have cameraphones and the internet now.

Thats happiness.

Like that smile !!

Awesome dad tells a small lie to make his kids day.

i thought the other kid is holding a gasoline.

Poor kid if he grows up being a pyromaniac... I can imagine a shady old guy rubbing 2 sticks together at the back of a taco bell parking lot..

life ruined...

I know I thought he was drinking it

My dad played a similar trick on us when I was little.

We were out fishing and got caught in a huge rain storm. We made the decision to pull into a cove on a little island to light a fire and wait out the storm. My dad sent us kids off to find some kindling for a fire but said he'd have to try to start the fire by rubbing sticks since he'd forgotten to pack matches. Us kids tramped off into the forest to find wood and came back to a roaring fire. We were all convinced he'd done it with the sticks.

He finally broke his silence 20+ years later and admitted he had matches in his pocket the whole time. We were convinced for years he had started that fire by hand.

What a jolly dude! :)

I love it when you can see someone get that happy and exited that they do shit like that twitching with their arms. It makes me happy when you know that they're genuinely happy.

And o can see that officer standing their all damn day just laughing at people. It's gonna be the safest place in that town that day.

When your with someone who laughs like that, life's always a bit better!

I love that he's anticipating it and takes so much joy. Like you can see him think "Wait for it... Wait for it... YES!"

Kendra Harrison when she realized she just ran 12.20 seconds in the 100m hurdles, burying 28 year old world record.

I love how happy all of the other runners are for her. I think it may be the general runner's mentality of just trying to beat your previous best, but I dig the sportsmanship displayed in track.

That feeling when you're literally on top of the world!

FYI she beat the previous record by about 0.01/second

:) Dang, all those girls look like beautiful models.

The title caption of her “burying” the old world record made me think she beat it by a huge margin.
