He Found His Cat Strangely Sitting On His Laptop But When He Figured Out Why… He Broke Into Tears.
Normally, cats and dogs don’t really care for each other. But Charlie and Scout aren’t like most cats and dogs. They’ve formed a loving bond from the first day they met and held it even after Charlie passed away. I’ll admit, when I first saw their pictures and read their story I got a little teary eyed. It’s just so beautiful and touching. See it for yourself, take a look below.
After all, the cars are driven by humans, not Google’s own near-infallible automated driving software.
Now it seems that one of the cars – equipped with sophisticated 360-degree cameras – may have run over a dog on a quiet suburban street in Chile.
As you virtually travel down a road called Meza Bell you can clearly see a yellow dog sprinting in front of the car (in Chile people drive on the right-hand side of the road). Take a step forward along the street and all you can see where you would expect the dog to be is an inconclusive blur.
Further down the road, from the car’s rear-facing cameras, you can see the same dog laying down near the pavement. What happened between those two images, and the eventual fate of the dog, is unknown. But Google is investigating.
A spokesperson told the Telegraph: “We’ve taken security measures and have guidelines in place to protect people, and animals, as we drive thousands of kilometres to bring useful and relevant information to maps users around the world.
“We are reviewing the imagery to try to understand and maybe inform what happened,” they said.
It is not the first time that unusual sights have been caught by Google’s Street View cars. In April last year a young couple was apparently caughthaving sex on the bonnet of a car beside a busy Australian road.
The relaxed nature of the pair – she waving to the camera, he draining the last gulp from what appears to be a bottle of beer – led many to believe the image was just a prank.
In 2010 a young girl caused a local panic in Worcester when images of her lying on the pavement led to concerns that there had been a death in the street. It was later confirmed that she had just been playing with friends.
While planning his family holiday, Kai – the bulldog´s dad couldn’t stand the thought of leaving his bulldog behind. Watch the surprise he prepared for the bulldog at his first kennel visit.
A cow rescued from a neglectful animal hoarder is now free to roam her California ranch, but whatever you do don’t call her a heifer.
Milkshake, as she’s called, believes she a dog.
Beth DiCaprio at the Grace Foundation says the cow trots around the El Dorado Hills ranch along with her canine best friend and even refuses to eat grass like her bovine relatives.

Moo? Milkshake is an 8-year-old cow in California that thinks she’s a dog
Rescued: Milkshake was kept locked in a tiny cage by an animal hoarder until she was rescued by staff at the Grace Foundation Ranch in El Dorado Hills, California
‘Milkshake is still not convinced she is a cow and has never been a fan of grazing,’ DiCaprio told Caters.
The 1,200 pound Hereford heifer was taken in by the Grace Foundation — a non-profit that usually only fosters needy horses — after she was rescued from an animal hoarder who kept her locked in a cage.
‘When Milkshake first arrived at the ranch she didn’t even know what grass was,’ said DiCaprio.
Now she has all the space to roam she could want. But she’d prefer to follow DiCaprio and her mutt friend Riley.
Milkshake refuses to graze like normal cows and demands she be fed from a bowl like her canine friends
Picturesque: Now Milkshake is free to roam the golden California hills alongside her furry farm dog friends
‘She follows me around all day long, just like my dogs – she comes and watches me tend to all the other animals,’ said DiCaprio. ‘She’s even followed me into the bathroom before, although she was a little scared of her own reflection.’
Milkshake also eats like a dog.
‘I think she thinks it’s pointless finding her own food when she can wait on us bringing it to her in a bowl, like her dog friends,’ DiCaprio said.
Now eight years old, Milkshake is like a real-life bull in a china shop – especially when there is food to be found.
The Grace Foundation Ranch normally rescues horses but made an exception for quirky Milkshake
‘If she goes into a room she causes mayhem – especially if she spots some snacks,’ said Milkshake’s main caregiver Beth DiCaprio
The heifer goes graze-y whenever food is around and has been known to knock over furniture that’s been in her way.
Beth, 51, said: ‘If she goes into a room she causes mayhem – especially if she spots some snacks.’
The Grace Foundation, which was founded 10 years ago, is home to more than 200 ‘last chance’ animals who have been saved from all over California.
The not-for-profit ranch normally only takes in horses but Milkshake is a real hit with visitors and staff alike.
Beth added: ‘Everyone loves Milkshake – she’s certainly one of a kind.’
PET SQUIRREL HIDES ACORN IN DOGS FUR

Royston Grimstead, 42, from Chedzoy, Somerset, came home to find border collie spaniel cross Luce had chewed through the fibreglass wheel arch of his luxury motor

Royston Grimstead, 42, came home to find that border collie spaniel cross Luce had gnawed at the fibreglass wheel arch of his luxury motor.
Mr Grimstead saw that his four-year-old pet ‘was covered in white stuff’ so gave her away the very next day – after claiming Luce also didn’t get on with his other dog.
The impatient pet owner, from Chedzoy, Somerset, said: ‘She had chewed out a huge chunk. I just laughed. I mean, what else could I do?
‘I came home and saw her covered in white stuff and I thought she had got a bird and it was feathers – but it was the fibreglass from the car.
‘I’m not a crier and she knew she had done something wrong because she had this guilty look on her face.’
Divorced Mr Grimstead, from Chedzoy, Somerset, got Luce three years ago, and claimed she had never snacked on any of his possessions before she chewed on his car last Wednesday.
He justified giving away the border collie by stating that Luce does not get on with his other dog, a 10-year-old border collie called Jess.

Mr Grimstead gave Luce away by putting an advert on a dog rehoming website last week. Her new owners also live in Somerset.
He added that he was already considering re-homing her before she chewed at his vehicle – which he described as ‘the final straw’.
