The Daily Treat: Clever Dog Raids the Fridge Like a Champ

Originally posted 12/10/2014 06:50AM

If we had to guess what our dogs dream about, we'd say either Ryan Gosling or opening up our refrigerators and consuming everything inside.

The latter is most certainly true for Allie, a 12-year-old yellow Labrador retriever who was busted by her family for raiding the kitchen when they're not home.

San Luis Obispo, California, radio personality Adam Montiel said he noticed his dog was getting into the fridge and freezer. "We couldn't figure out how she was doing it, so I hooked up a GoPro to find out," he writes on YouTube.

When people first laid eyes on Dori the dog, they thought she was dead.

So when SPCA officers responded to a call about a "dead dog" at the home of Ronald and Shelley Breier, they were surprised to learn that Dori was still alive – unable to move in the corner of a basement but still breathing, according to WIVB 4 in Buffalo, New York.

It started with an impossible poodle.

Cortney Wisbauer was fresh out of William Paterson University with a degree in Art Education but no immediate teaching job when two girls she babysits begged her last December to help them with something they saw online: a toy poodle fashioned out of rubber bands woven over a pegged loom.

"I watched the video and just had no idea how to do it," says Wisbauer, 23, an artist and aspiring K-through-12 art teacher who lives with her parents in northern New Jersey. "But I went home that day telling myself that one day I'm going to make that poodle and show them I actually did it."

It's amazing what a single meatball can do.

A group of adventure athletes from Sweden known as Team Peak Performance found this out during November's Adventure Racing World Championship. The competition requires participants to endure a 430 mile course – that includes hiking, kayaking, biking and more – through the wilds of the Amazon. During one of their brief breaks on this impressive excursion the four person team happened upon a friendly stray dog and offered the hungry pup a meatball to snack on, reports NPR.

Obese 26-Lb. Shelter Cat Goes on Christmas Diet

He's kind of a big deal.

Texas, a 26-lb. shelter cat named after the large Lone Star state, is making headlines in the U.K. for his dangerously huge size.

The 8-year-old feline, who was recently taken in by the Battersea Dog and Cat Home in London, England, after presumably being fed too much by his now-deceased owner, is embarking on a strict diet and exercise plan to lose weight (safely) during the holidays and beyond.

"For Texas this really is a very serious health issue he's battling," SuiLi Weight, a team leader at the shelter, told the Daily Mail. "At Battersea we take in around 3,000 cats every year, so we see cats of all shapes and sizes, but Texas is by far the biggest cat we've ever seen."
