These images of Doggos being reunited with their favorite humans are a wave of pure joy

Humans and dogs have a long, historic relationship that plays out in special, individual bonds the world over. Countless people have found themselves unable to resist the adorableness of a puppy they were just going to "look at," and ended up in a mutually adoring relationship. Countless kids have grown up with a loyal canine companion who is always there for them and makes up a big part of their childhood memories.

This bond is no more apparent than when a dog and its favorite human get separated and then reunited. Some dogs express excitement when they see pretty much anyone, but when a pup has a person, there's nothing like it.

Just look at how happy this lost doggo is to see her owner—and vice versa.


This dog's favorite human has had to social distance from his family due to a lung condition during the pandemic. When they finally get to see each other? Magic.


When your pup goes missing, it's traumatic. A good samaritan found this dog from "Missing" signs put up in the neighborhood, and just look how the owner comes running when he sees his furry friend in the front seat.

This gentleman has been in the hospital, so someone had to hold the sweet pupperoo back a bit at first so the man didn't get pummeled with love. But once they let go, the good doggo gave him some warm, gentle lovin'.

Sometimes a reunion happens after a long absence, but dogs remember their loved ones. It may take some sniffing around a bit to trigger the recognition, but once that happens it's a sight to behold.

This sweet girl has been living in a shelter for three year after getting separated from her owner. It takes her a minute to realize who he is, but then the love fest begins. The jumping and the whimpering? So awesome.

This dog's owner's been gone for two years with the military. At first, the dog seems not to recognize her, and even seems wary of her. Then comes the sniff and a hug. Then full-on celebration.

This golden retriever doesn't have that issue. In fact, just the mention of his mama being home sends him to the door, and when she comes in? Best. Day. Ever.

This owner and his dog have only been separated for five weeks, but a five-week hospital stay that results in a 50-pound weight loss confused the poor pup. He barks and won't get close enough to smell him at first. But once he does, the tail goes wagging and the kisses commence.

Sometimes a dog that's gone missing goes through some things before they finally get reunited with their humans. This doggo seems scared when she sees her family after having been lost for 19 months. Who knows what she experienced, but once she starts warming up a bit and gets close enough to smell her humans, the reunion becomes the joyful party it should be.

Humans barely deserve dogs, but we're so grateful for the joy, companionship, and genuine no-strings-attached love they bring to our lives.

Innovation is awesome, right? I mean, it gave us the internet!

However, there is always a price to pay for modernization, and in this case, it’s in the form of digital eye strain, a group of vision problems that can pop up after as little as two hours of looking at a screen. Some of the symptoms are tired and/or dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and neck and shoulder pain1. Ouch!

Failure is a great teacher.

It’s true that life never gets easier, and we only get continuously better at our lives. Childhood’s lessons are simple—this is how you color in the lines, 2 + 2 = 4, brush your teeth twice a day, etc. As we get older, lessons keep coming, and though they might still remain simple in their message, truly understanding them can be difficult. Often we learn the hard way.

The good news is, the “hard way” is indeed a great teacher. Learning the hard way often involves struggle, mistakes and failure. While these feelings are undeniably uncomfortable, being patient and persistent enough to move through them often leaves us not only wiser in having gained the lesson, but more confident, assured and emotionally resilient. If that’s not growth, I don’t know what is.

Co-op CEO Shirine Khoury-Haq.

The CEO of Co-op, one of the UK’s largest supermarket chains has made an important statement about excess at a time when many families are struggling in the UK.

The Daily Mail reports that Shirine Khoury-Haq, the head of a company with over 3900 retail locations says she’s giving her twin, six-year-old daughters one present each this Christmas because she could not “in good conscience” give them more while millions of families struggle with inflation and high energy prices.

Khoury-Haq makes over £1 million ($1,190,000) a year after bonuses, so she pledged to give her family's present money to those in need. “It just feels like excess, given what’s happening in the world. In good conscience, I can’t do that in my own home,” Khoury-Haq said according to The Guardian.

“The rest of our budget will be given to Santa to provide presents for children whose parents can’t contribute to the elves,” she continued. “We’re going to go out shopping for those other presents and [we will] send them to Santa.”

Sometimes you see something so mind-boggling you have to take a minute to digest what just happened in your brain. Be prepared to take that moment while watching these videos.

Real estate investor and TikTok user Tom Cruz shared two videos explaining the spreadsheets he and his friends use to plan vacations and it's...well...something. Watch the first one:

So "Broke Bobby" makes $125,000 a year. There's that.

How about the fact that his guy has more than zero friends who budget $80,000 for a 3-day getaway? Y'all. I wouldn't know how to spend $80,000 in three days if you paid me to. Especially if we're talking about a trip with friends where we're all splitting the cost. Like what does this even look like? Are they flying in private jets that burn dollar bills as fuel? Are they bathing in hot tubs full of cocaine? I genuinely don't get it.

Cuban immigrant’s reaction to getting his first American paycheck has gone viral

Before coming to the U.S. last year, Diaz made $12 a month as a computer science teacher in Cuba.

The Cuban and American flags.

An Instagram post featuring Yoel Diaz, a recent Cuban immigrant, is going viral because it shows a powerful example of something many of us in America take for granted. The freedom to earn a paycheck for a day of honest labor.

In the video, Diaz is ecstatic after he opens his first paycheck after getting a job as a seasonal worker for UPS. CBS reports that before coming to the U.S. last year, Diaz made $12 a month as a computer science teacher in Cuba.

"This is my first hourly paycheck that I feel every hour counted," he told CBS News. "That every hour of work has importance in my life and that I know I can work hard for something. I can't compare that emotion with anything. Because I never had that in my country."

The new job was a big change from life in Cuba where he had trouble filling his refrigerator. He told CBS News that sometimes he only had two items: "Water, water, water, five, ten eggs, water."
