Two Dogs In Wheelchairs Showed Up At The Beach And Cuteness Ensued

It isn’t too often that you see a dog on wheels, let alone one at the beach.

However, that isn’t to say that wheelchair-bound dogs can’t enjoy running around in the sand and water. Just ask this happy pooch, who had no problems at all during her awesome day in the sun. In fact, things for her got even better when she ran into an unexpected new friend who happened to share a lot in common.

As soon as she saw another dog in a wheelchair, she couldn’t contain her excitement.

The other pup was just as happy to have a buddy who got around in the same way…

…and when they met, it was clearly love at first sight. Watch them play together in the adorable video below!

15 Times People Have Found Creepy Crawlies In Their Food — So Gross!

It never fails that every time I go out for a nice meal with my cousin, she’s bound to find something in her food.

She’s gotten so used to finding things in her prepared meals that she regularly inspects her food just waiting to find a reason to call over the manager. Me on the other hand, I live by the motto of eat now, ask questions later.

One thing my cousin hasn’t found in her food is bugs of any kind. Unfortunately, these people weren’t so lucky. These 15 people opened their food items with the best intentions only to find something slimy and disgusting setting up shop in their dinner.

1. After discovering these bugs in his cafeteria lunch, I think it’s safe to say he started brown bagging it.

The Reason She’s Using Paper Towels In Her Hair Is Totally Genius

It’s no secret that frequent and sustained blow-drying isn’t exactly great for your hair.

That said, most of us have little choice but to grab a blow dryer and douse our hair with heat before running out of the door to go to work in the morning. Over time, this can cause damage such as breakage and split ends. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

While we all know that it’s important to get as much water as possible out of our hair before blow-drying it, towel-drying can actually cause even more damage.

Fear not, though, because there is a solution — paper towels! Beauty blogger Cathy Donohue says, “Paper towels soak up the water faster than a towel does so when you go to blow-dry, you won’t have to spend as long blast-drying your hair.”

After Telling Her Pregnant Sister Not To Get A Dog, This Woman Happily Ate Her Words

For people who are about to become parents, it probably isn’t the best idea to throw a new pet into the mix with a baby on the way.

Parents have enough to worry about and prepare for in the months leading up to giving birth, which is why adopting a cat or dog can add a lot of stress, especially if they don’t know the animal’s personality or whether they’ll be good around children. And because babies need a TON of attention and care, it’s easy for pets to get neglected.

That said, these situations sometimes end up working out so perfectly that it seems like they were meant to be. Such is the case with Imgur user adderly‘s niece and the black Lab she calls her best friend.

When adderly’s pregnant sister thought about getting a puppy, she firmly told her not to out of concern. The mom-to-be decided to anyway, and when her baby girl was born in 2007, she met the sweet pup she’d share her childhood with.

Born just a month apart, the two formed an instant bond with each other.

They became inseparable and did everything together, including watching Saturday cartoons…

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a10518c" data-source="

…going on car rides…

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a105368" data-source="

…walking to school…

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a10553a" data-source="

…and just hanging out on the couch.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a10571d" data-source="

After watching them grow up together, adderly was happy to admit that “they’re pretty much the bestest friends ever and I’m eating my words.”

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a1058f3" data-source="

Their friendship has seen many years, more than a few gray hairs…

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a105ac2" data-source="

..and even a new baby sister!

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a105c94" data-source="

Through it all, they’ve stuck together.

Imgur / adderly

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5966d6a105e68" data-source="

Now, 10 years later, the little girl won’t leave her best friend’s side while he’s recovering from getting a few benign tumors removed. This is unconditional love at its finest.

You’ve Been Blowdrying Your Hair Wrong For Years — Here Are 10 Tips To Help You Out

If I didn’t have a hairdryer, I have no idea how I’d keep my thick hair in line.

I love how it helps me straighten out my locks so easily while saving me the embarrassment of walking around with an ugly, frizzy hairstyle. The only problem with this is that I had no idea I was completely damaging my hair in the process.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

Don’t worry, though! You can avoid my mistakes by becoming a blowdrying pro with some help from these simple tips and tricks.

1. Your hair is way too wet.

iStock

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

Your hair is actually supposed to be nearly dry before you start using a hairdryer, because styling it while it’s too wet can damage your hair and take way longer to do. Try removing as much excess water as you can with a towel first.

2. You aren’t using the right kind of brush.

iStock

If you have a metal brush, it can heat up really fast and damage your hair. Use a boar, nylon, or ceramic brush instead and make sure that the barrel is round.

3. You aren’t using any products to protect your hair.

iStock

Drying your hair blasts it with heat and damages it without any protective products. This will cause your hair to get frizzy, which completely defeats the purpose of using a hairdryer.

4. You aren’t using your dryer’s nozzle.

iStock

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

This attachment makes styling much easier and also helps you smooth out your hair.

5. You aren’t using the right products for your hair type.

iStock

If your product doesn’t match your hair, you could miss out on awesome volume, shine, or frizz resistance. You also might end up weighing your hair down. Be sure to read the labels carefully before buying!

6. You aren’t drying your hair in sections.

iStock

You should be working on small sections one at a time so you can easily control the style you’re going for. Start from the bottom by clipping up the top portion and working in two-inch sections, adjusting the clip as you go.

7. You’re blowing your hair in the wrong direction.

iStock

At the roots, you should be blowing your hair in the opposite direction that it naturally falls. For the ends, point the dryer at them in a downward direction to get maximum smoothness.

8. The setting you’re using is likely too hot.

iStock

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

If you don’t have really thick hair, you should always use the low temperature setting to avoid any unnecessary damage.

9. Your hairdryer is just too old.

iStock

Dryers are only meant to last for so long before they stop working properly. If you’ve used yours more than a few hundred times, it’s probably a good idea to replace it before it overheats and gives you tons of split ends.

10. You aren’t completely drying your hair or finishing with the cool setting.

iStock

You need to make sure that all of your hair is dry before putting the dryer away, because wet strands can lead to a lot of frizz later in the day. It can be hard to tell whether your hair is wet or not when it feels hot to the touch, so use the cool setting to finish off your style and dry every last hair.

Now you’ll have the nicest, most gorgeous hair out of all your friends and family. You can thank us later.

This Is What You Should Eat When You’re Feeling Sick…Or Hungover.

Whether you overdid it on the booze the night before or going into battle with a cold or flu, it’s always a headache (literally) when you wake up feeling like roadkill. No matter what your grandma or best friend tells you about their own sure fire cure-alls, these items have been proven by science to help take the edge of a sore head, stomach and other common ailments.

Stock up on these before cold and flu season starts…or your next bender.

1.) Citrus: Though vitamin C has been ruled out as an old wive’s tale for a common cold cure, the pulp of citrus does contain flavanoids which help boost immune systems.

2.) Spicy Food: If you have a stomach ache, steer clear. But if your sinuses are backed up, spicy food works as a great natural decongestant.

3.) Tea: Hot drinks help alleviate congestion and soothe sore throats. Green tea is especially helpful with infection fighting antioxidants.

4.) Coconut Water: Better than sports drinks with nasty chemicals and dyes in them, this natural option is just as effective at replenishing electrolytes.

5.) Crackers: Go with unsalted or lightly salted crackers to help ease digestion issues.

6.) Toast: Like crackers, the high starch and bland options helps ease queasy stomachs as well as helping your liver get back to regulating your blood sugar after being distracted by alcohol.

7.) Asparagus: Extracts in the leaves and spears can help boost up enzymes that breakdown while drinking heavily.

8.) Bananas: They’re packed full of potassium and help replenish electrolytes lost while sweating out the flu.

9.) Broth soup: Classic chicken noodle includes an amino acid called cysteine which helps get rid of mucus build up when you have a cold.

10.) Eggs: The protein helps stabilize your blood sugar and the cystine helps break down toxins.

11.) Ginger: Drinking ginger tea or flat ginger ale can help with soothing nausea.

12.) Honey: Add it to your tea to bump up the anti-oxidant levels.

13.) Popsicles: They’re a tasty way to soothe a sore throat and stay hydrated.

14.) Prickly Pears: The spiky fruit found on cacti is full of anti-inflammatory agents.

15.) Quinoa: This super grain contains amino acids which can be helpful after a night of heavy drinking.

16.) Tomato Juice: As long as it’s not a Bloody Mary, the juice provides you with vitamins, minerals and much needed hydration.

His Owner Wasn’t Getting A Good Workout, So This Pup Decided To Change That — LOL

They say you should always exercise with a buddy, however I’m not sure the rules apply to our furry friends.

Trying to show off for the camera, this athletic dog owner begins a set of push-ups, completing just nine before his doggy best friend decides he wants in on the action. Completely unprovoked, this exercise fanatic pup hops onto his owner’s shoulders to add a bit more weight to each completed push-up.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

That’s definitely not helping, bud.

So much for getting a good workout in before dinner.

25 Incredible Things To Eat In Scotland Right Now

Come for the scenery, stay for the chocolate orange and cardamom cake.

1. Fish and chips at Anstruther Fish Bar, Fife.

This multi-award-winning chip shop in the ludicrously pretty fishing village of Anstruther counts Prince William among its customers. If you want to eat like royalty you should definitely try their freshly caught haddock and chips.

2. A traditional Scotch egg at The Auld Smiddy Inn, Pitlochry, Perth and Kinross.

These days this 100-year-old former blacksmith’s forge sells locally sourced, wholesome, and tasty Scottish grub instead of horseshoes, as well as fantastic real ales from the nearby Inveralmond Brewery in Perth.

3. A blueberry and coconut scone at Kitschenbake, Newport-on-Tay, Fife.

This seafront bakery and cafe is a relatively new addition to the pretty Fife town of Newport-on-Tay, near Dundee. It’s not unheard of for dolphins to pop by and put on a show while customers enjoy a scone or goat’s cheese tart.

4. Haggis, neeps, and tatties at The Clachaig Inn, Glencoe, Argyll.

If you’re a keen munro bagger, you’re probably already familiar with this rustic pub in the shadow of Bidean nam Bian. If not, then you should definitely stick it on your bucket list. It’s a great place to enjoy some traditional food, music, and local beer.

5. A full Scottish breakfast at The Green Welly Stop, Tyndrum, Stirling.

The Green Welly Stop has been welcoming walkers, cyclists, and the slightly lost for over 48 years. What was once the local post office has evolved into a shop and restaurant serving hearty grub to people walking the West Highland Way.

6. Cheese-topped fish pie at The Witchery, Edinburgh.

If you’re looking for a atmospheric restaurant then you could do a lot worse than The Witchery. It’s housed in a beautiful medieval building a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle, and serves up luxurious dishes like this indulgent fish pie.

7. Luxury hot chocolate with cream at the Machrie Bay Tearoom, Isle of Arran.

This lovely, friendly little tearoom sits right beside the sea. If you don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, try the Taste of Arran platter instead: a fantastic selection of Arran cheese, oatcakes, Creelers smoked salmon, and crusty bread.

8. Bacon and maple syrup pancakes at Bruach Bar and Restaurant, Broughty Ferry, Dundee.

This laidback, sofa-filled pub not far from the Dundee waterfront is the perfect place to grab a relaxed, bacony brunch. Vegetarians can opt for eggs florentine with buttery hollandaise and wilted spinach.

9. Oysters at Cafe Fish, Tobermory, Isle of Mull.

This seafood nirvana in the pretty harbour town of Tobermory prides itself on its relaxed atmosphere and fresh ingredients – the menus say “the only thing frozen are our fishermen”. It’s clearly quite cold on Mull.

10. A Scottish cheeseboard at Hotel Eilean Iarmain, Isle of Skye.

Passers-by are welcome to pop into this traditional Skye hotel to enjoy a pint, a large quantity of cheese – including Scottish brie, crowdie, and Strathdon Blue – and spectacular views across the Sound of Sleat to the Knoydart Hills.

11. Udon noodles with Thai spices and home-smoked tofu at David Bann Vegetarian Restaurant, Edinburgh.

David Bann is a stylish restaurant that refuses to succumb to the usual veggie stereotypes of rubbery quiche and bland lentils. Instead, its striking menu includes a chilli pancake with chocolate sauce and these luscious spicy noodles.

12. A BLT with sweet potato, carrot, and parsnip crisps at The Fat Cyclist Cafe, Stirling.

This fun, friendly cafe – presumably run by a fat cyclist – is a great place to grab lunch or relax with a coffee on a Sunday morning. One thing’s for sure: You’ll have to cycle pretty far to burn off the calories in their indulgent red velvet cake.

13. Banana parfait at the Moonfish Cafe, Aberdeen.

This beautiful restaurant sits on a cobbled street in Aberdeen’s medieval quarter. Food highlights include their cod with pancetta and delicious desserts that would definitely make professional pudding-botherer Gregg Wallace cry tears of joy.

14. Confit pork belly with leek mash and a cider jus at The Harbour Cafe, Loch Venachar, Perthshire.

This beautiful lochside restaurant is so close to the water that it’s practically in it. Huge windows make the most of the setting, while the food – like this Ayrshire pork belly with Stornoway black pudding – makes the most of local ingredients.

15. Coconut bread and butter pudding with passionfruit ice cream at Stravaigin, Glasgow.

Stravaigin is a creative West End restaurant that experiments with wild ingredients like hedgerow herbs, rook, and grey squirrel. Even its desserts are unusual: As well as this exotic bread pudding, diners can also sample curry-leaf ice cream.

16. Fillet steak topped with caramelised onions and haggis at The Foveran, Kirkwall, Orkney.

The Foveran offers its guests sweeping views of Scapa Flow as well as fresh Orkney beef, lamb, and seafood. They also bake fresh bannock bread every day using stoneground beremeal flour from the nearby Barony Mill.

17. “Roks and Moss” at Restaurant Mark Greenaway, Edinburgh.

TV chef Mark Greenaway opened his New Town restaurant two years ago and it’s been gathering good reviews ever since. This unusual pud is actually a delicious combination of pistachio sponge, chocolate mint mousse, and coffee macaroons.

18. Risotto cake topped with a poached egg at Pillars of Hercules Cafe, Cupar, Fife.

This vegetarian farm shop, campsite, and cafe is as beautiful as it is quirky. All the food is organic and customers can opt to eat their healthy lunch on a rustic, Lord of the Rings-style outdoor terrace supported by live trees.

19. Steak pie at the Waterfront Bar, Inverness.

The Waterfront is an airy, historical gastropub on the banks of the River Ness. Their steak pie is a particular favourite with visitors and locals, but if you fancy something a bit different you should definitely sample the haggis pakora.

20. Meringues at Mhor 84 Motel, Balquhidder, Stirling.

This airy B&B is a sister business to the nearby Monachyle Mhor hotel, run by award-winning chef Tom Lewis. Their seafood dishes are great, but don’t leave until you’ve tried their vast, pillowy raspberry meringues with chantilly cream.

21. Vegan chocolate orange and cardamom cake with soya ice cream at The 78, Glasgow.

The 78 is about as chilled as a city-centre cafe bar can get. Its open fire, sofas, and rustic wooden tables make it feel like a home from home, and the vegan menu is filled with unexpected delights like this i
