KPRC 2 was airing a segment with the Houston Humane Society to help find a precious little dog named Angel a home. But Angel was very impatient and just couldn’t wait her turn.
Weatherman Khambrel Marshall was giving his forecast for the Houston station when all of a sudden, little Angel made her way in front of the screen.
As soon as Marshall noticed her, he picked her right up and decided to include her in his forecast.
“We wanna make sure you get a lot of clean water. Make sure you keep your pets inside. You got keep water for you guys, right?” Marshall asked, looking at Angel.
While Marshall did a great job handling this unexpected situation, he does bring up a very valid point.
With temperatures rising all over the country, it’s very important to make sure we know how to properly care for our pets in the heat.
The ASPCA offers ways animal lovers can help ensure their pets have a safe summer.
Dogs and cats can become dehydrated very quickly, so it’s vital to make sure you give them plenty of water when it’s hot outside. If you bring your pet outside with you, make sure there is shade for them to lay in.
Also, be sure that your dog doesn’t walk on hot asphalt, because it can burn their sensitive paw pads.
Also, it’s very dangerous to leave your animal in a car on a hot day. Even with the windows open, the temperature inside the car will quickly rise, which could leave your dog with heat stroke or even kill them.
It’s also important to know the symptoms of overheating in pets.
According to Dr. Louise Murray, Director of Medicine at the ASPCA’s Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital, the symptoms of overheating in pets include “excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, seizures, and an elevated body temperature of over 104 degrees.”

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:
We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!
One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.
It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.
After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.
There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.
There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂
10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.
While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.
