18 Times It Was Absolutely Heartbreaking To Leave Your Precious Pets

Saying goodbye is never easy, and it’s especially hard for pets. For one thing, you can explain your itinerary to them all day and they won’t really get it. “I’ll be home at six,” means nothing because the average dog doesn’t understand the future tense, nor the concept of “six.”

That’s why goodbyes are sometimes so heartbreaking, even if you’ll only be apart for an hour. These saddened pet owners really know the pain.

1. When the realization of what an airport means kicks in.

2. When a single gesture means so much.

3. When you’re off to college.

4. (Going off to college is a tough one.)

5. When you forget an important goodbye ritual, like the proper number of scratches.

6. When you realize that they can see you leaving.

7. When you really hit it off with the locals.

8. When you thought you could just slip out.

9. When they make an effort to get up at 5 a.m. just to see you off.

10. When they think of clever ways to see you off (like breaking your blinds).

11. When they insist.

12. When a stranger appreciates your kindness.

13. When you make a friend in the neighborhood.

14. When you get the spontaneous hug.

15. When they realize they’re inside and you’re outside.

16. …And when they seem to rediscover this each time.

17. When they really enjoyed your visit.

18. When they’re unexpectedly emotional.

So tragic. But it’s okay. Just think of how happy all the pets are when their humans finally come home!

Leaving is hard, but these pets are so happy to see you again!

What The Real Life Versions Of Disney Princes Look Like

Perhaps your first crush was Eric from The Little Mermaid, even though he was clearly not real his pretty blue eyes, floppy hair and sweet pursuit of Ariel was still hard to resist. Even if falling head over fins for a cartoon drawing seems a little silly, anyone that has ever found Disney Princes attractive is clearly smart.

The real life versions of Disney Princes are total hunks! Thanks to Finnish artist and designer Jirka Väätäinen’s series of “Real Life” Disney Princes we see this for certain. Any dreamy prince charming created by Disney is hard to match up to, but Väätäinen stayed as true as possible to original characters in order to make sure they look completely believable.

It looks like a model posing for a picture, but really it’s Väätäinen’s talents for combining digital compositing, photo manipulation and digital printing to create what looks like the real-life version of cartoon characters. The Melbourne-based designer has also created a series for “Real Life” Disney Girls too, which you can see on his website.

For now have fun drooling over these “Real Life” Disney Princes.

24 Hilarious Pets Who Are Totally Terrified By Ordinary, Everyday Items

Not all fears are rational, especially if you happen to be one of our fluffy animal friends. Some particularly skittish pets seem to adopt the “trust no one” policy for every little item that passes their way.

It may not be logical, but the mundane objects scare these adorable cats and dogs silly. It’s hilarious…then again, you can’t help but still feel kind of bad for the super-phobic fur babies.

1. Don’t worry, it’s only bad luck to go UNDER!

2. If only he could walk through walls.

3. “Something touched my leg.”

4. The yellow snake protects him from the lawn monster (mower).


6. “The last two steps are bigger than the rest, I swear.”

7. “Why is that huge metal bird in the sky so loud?”

8. Hey, tweens can be pretty terrifying.

9. “That thing looks like IT’S gonna eat ME!”

10. Someone just decided to be an upstairs-only cat from now on.

11. He actually prefers the invisible ball trick.

12. “Don’t play innocent, I see you talking to the vacuum all the time!”

13. The threshold obviously has a secret forcefield.

14. Safety first!

15. “Why is the sky so angry?”

16. “What if I go down the drain with the water??”

17. To be fair, he is outnumbered.

18. “We’re in a big, moving metal box. WHAT ABOUT THAT ISN’T SCARY.”

19. “It’s okay, I’ll just stay this age.”

20. He prefers Meryl Streep.

21. “But…there’s bugs out there.”

22. Big brothers are way safer than seat belts.

23. “Not the air monsters again, anything but them!”


Maybe with a little patience, or perhaps some therapy, these cuties can conquer their fears. In the meantime, I think they’ve all earned some nice, calm belly rubs.
