My goodness, who is cutting onions in here? I can’t handle this!

Every parent knows how special it is when new life is welcomed into the world, and many mothers can only imagine how hard it is to do so without their partner present.

But many military wives know very well what it’s like to brave childbirth while their husband is deployed overseas, and many of our troops also know the gut-wrenching heartache of being halfway around the world when a new child comes along.

All these emotions seem to burst out in one single viral video of an ARMY soldier surprising his wife after she’s just given birth to twin baby girls.

Fox News Insider has the story:

A heartwarming video shows a U.S. Army soldier surprising his wife at the hospital after she gave birth to twin girls.

Staff Sergeant Skyler Cooper was serving in Kuwait with the Kansas National Guard when his wife, Cydney, gave birth to twins Emma and Kyla on Jan. 24 at Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka, Kansas.

While he wasn’t able to be present for the birth, Skyler was able to make it back stateside about two weeks later. But he didn’t tell Cydney…

Again, I am going to have to advise you to have tissues present. This one will get ya.

WATCH: Tiny Pup Protects 12 Year-Old Owner from Vicious Wild Animal

GOOD DOG!

Published

There are times in every dog owner’s life in which man looks down at beast and wonders just how peculiar and unique this relationship really is.

There are no companion animals more attuned to the human existence than our dogs.  (I’m sorry, horse-owners, but y’all come in a close second).

These are members of the family who feel a duty and nobility about doing the dirty, animalistic work of the group…no matter the size.

In Toronto this week, a young girl and her small dog made big news.

An incredibly brave little Yorkie defended its owner, a 10-year-old girl, from a coyote that attacked the pair while out for a neighborhood walk in Toronto this week.

The Yorkshire terrier, who the family rescued six years ago, suffered “extremely serious tissue injuries to her spine and her leg,” Dorothy Kwan, 10-year-old Lily Kwan’s mother, wrote on a crowdfunding page to raise money for the veterinarian bills.

“You can see our dog putting herself between my daughter and the coyote,” Dorothy Kwan wrote. “Even after she was seriously injured, she continued to bark and chase the coyote away. She fought back.”

The entire scene was captured on video:

The underdog yorkie did spend some time in a canine ICU, but returned home after a few days with 40 stitches and one heck of a story.

Joey Chestnut’s Gutsy Performance Breaks Another Hot Dog Eating Record

A feat unmatched for Chestnut, who is growing accustomed to the glory.

Published

on

One of the 4th of July’s most time-honored traditions may also be one of its zaniest, and this year was no exception.

Every Independence Day, the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest amazes spectators and onlookers alike, as the larger-than-life characters of the professional eating world take the stage for what is widely considered the ultimate test of their “sport”.

And no, this isn’t the rinky-dink affair that you might find at your local frankfurter spot.  The pageantry and fanfare are unparalleled, as evidenced by the introduction afforded to the world’s most prolific hot dog downer.

And, if you thought for one second that Chestnut was going to phone it in in 2021, you’d be dead wrong.

Chowdown champ Joey “Jaws” Chestnut broke his own record to gulp to a 14th win in the men’s Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday, while Michelle Lesco took the women’s title. Chestnut downed 76 franks and buns in 10 minutes. That’s one more than he did in setting the men’s record last year, when the contest unfolded without fans because of the coronavirus pandemic. “It just felt good,” Chestnut, of Westfield, Indiana, said in an ESPN interview after his win Sunday. “Even if I was uncomfortable, having everybody cheer me and push me, it made me feel good.” Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona, downed 30¾ dogs in 10 minutes and called her win “an amazing feeling.” Reigning women’s champ and record-holder Miki Sudo skipped this year because she’s expecting a baby in a few weeks with fellow competitive eater Nick Wehry.
