When You Want To Fit In With The Crowd

You know the feeling, especially back in the day when your family moved- and you had to go to a new school and make new friends. You just wanted to fit in with the guys, right?

UK ResQte Of The Week Action

Right, check this out. So this puppeh Leia is cavorting on the beach when UH OH SHE FINDS A STRANDED BEBEH DOLPHIN!!! She alerts her hoomin who helps Buddy The Dolphin back out to sea! Good JOB, Leia!!


Here’s the background story:

“Whilst attempting Bass fishing on a beach near Criccieth (close to the mouth of the River Dwyfor) I was taking photos of the scenery when I heard my dog barking at me from down the beach….clearly she had found something! Managed to gently lift and guide this beached baby dolphin/juvenile harbour porpoise back out to sea. Stayed at the site for while to make sure he didn’t come back. Spoke to the coastguard once I had a signal and they reported it to the science team. Think the little guy was lucky as there was nobody around for miles! And, if it wasn’t for my dog barking at me I would have missed him too! Unfortunately I didn’t have a mobile signal to report the sighting there and then but if you do find yourself in a similar scenario and you can call the emergency numbers here: or the coastguard. You can also report sightings here.”

Copy of Piquet IMG_9986Earlier we told you about National Pig Day! But that’s not all for March 1st. Dolphins are just about the funniest and sleekest critters in the ocean. And they get an entire month! Photo of Piquet The Dolphin © Shedd Aquarium/Brenna Hernandez, provided by Torie A.

“♬ Everybody’s Gone Surfin’ ♫…..”

“….in Esperance, Western Australia.” OK, so it doesn’t have the rhyme like the Beach Boys classic song. But this video DOES have SURFING DOLPHIN ACTION! Jennene & Dave Riggs took this video with a quadcopter. (Boing Boing.)

ResQte Of The Week 2: Dolphin Drama In FLA.!

What did you do over the July 4th weekend? Unfortunately, this little goober Dolphin got stuck on Redington Beach, which is northwest of St. Petersburg, FL. But don’t worry- it ended OK! :)


Quoting this Mashable story, “The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was called to the scene, and rescued the dolphin by removing it out of the water to safety. The FWC is now caring for the dolphin with assistance from Florida’s Clearwater Marine Aquarium, according to local media.”

Check it out. It seems some Brazilian Fishermen Dudes spotted a small dolphin who had become tangled in a plastic bag. They hauled him on board, freed him, and tossed him back- getting a Thank You in the process!
