Originally posted 05/20/2014 02:20PM

Igor's family was leaving on a jet plane to Thailand. They knew when they'd be back again, but the poor little bulldog didn't.

So the patriarch of the family, from Lillestrom, Norway, decided to do something extra special for their adorable bulldog, who waited for them at a kennel while they vacationed.

He brought home to Igor.

In this YouTube video uploaded by a paint supply company, Igor's dad, Kai, secretly transforms a dog kennel into a little slice of home – complete with the family's couch, pillows and pictures lovingly placed throughout – so the pooch will be comforted by familiarity while he's temporarily living at his home away from home.

The Daily Treat: National Zoo Lion Cubs Nail Their Swim Test

Originally posted 05/09/2014 08:45AM

There are times in life when you just have to dive right in – and that was a lesson four African lion cubs at Smithsonian's National Zoo learned earlier this week.

The cubs, born March 10, were tasked with passing a swim reliability test on Tuesday. And they nailed it! (Watch the test in the video above.)

National Zoo staff say that the 10-week-old cuties were all able to keep their heads afloat, swim to the shallow end of the moat (2½-feet deep!) and climb back onto dry land, reports USA Today. That means they're almost ready to explore the terrain of their Washington, D.C., habitat with their mother, 9-year-old Shera.
