    Not since the sock puppet Lamb Chop has a tiny lamb stolen our hearts the way Winter the lamb does. His owner, Shannen Hussein, introduced Winter to us on her social media outlet of choice — Vine, the 6-second-video sharing app.
    When we first met Winter on Vine four months ago, he was happily bouncing down a tiled hallway — you know, like so many little lambs do. That original post was looped more than 33.7 million times on Vine:
    One of the more than 16,000 comments on that original video wrote, "Want a goat for Valentine's Day!"  As the months passed since Winter’s bouncy viral Vine, we have gotten to see updates on his life and some of his shenanigans via the #winterthelamb hashtag.
    Little Winter is not so little anymore. He’s now 6 months old and still loves to bounce along — only now he has discovered jumping on a bed:

    In three new Vine videos, a much larger Winter is seen happily bouncing and playing on a made bed in someone’s home. In one of the videos, Winter is

  • John Stortz is an illustrator from Los Angeles with a passion for travel. And he doesn’t go it alone. Stortz brings along his closest pal, a rescue husky named Wolfgang who stars in gorgeous photos taken on the road. Stortz shares the pictures of Wolfgang’s travels with his more than 45,000 fans on Instagram. Some of the places he has visited with his loyal pup are the Mojave Desert, “Prada Marfa” in Texas, and the mountains of Arizona.

    Followers on Instagram are stunned. "That dog is the world's greatest!" writes one commenter, while another calls the photos an "amazing idea and way to show the beauty of the world."
    While Stortz and Wolfgang’s travels have been stateside so far, he hopes to take the pup international very soon — traveling to the Canadian Rockies and Newfoundland. We will be patiently awaiting the snaps from those trips!

  • Meet Blade, the little disabled tortoise who gets to keep on moving thanks to his custom-made Lego wheelchair.
    Blade lost the use of his legs due to a metabolic bone disease that made him unable to bear the weight of his own shell.
    When Blade’s owner, Iris Pleste, noticed that her little tortoise was moving even more slowly than usual, she took him to her local vet, Dr. Carsten Plischke, who came up with a genius solution to Blade’s mobility problem.
    Inspired by his son’s Legos, Plischke created a one-of-a-kind Lego wheelchair for Blade.
    “We mounted Lego wheels on the tortoise Blade because he had a bone metabolism illness and his shell was too heavy and he had a loss of muscles,” Plischke told CNET. “That’s why he couldn’t pick up himself and walk anymore. The bones were like rubber and the musculature had clearly diminished.”
    The six-piece Lego wheelchair includes four wheels and is glued to the base of Blade’s shell. Plischke said that eventually the wheels can come off, but in

  • One cricket fan in Australia is being called a legend after he managed to pull off a spectacular one-handed catch during a match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
    The ball was launched into the stands by Indian batsman Rohit Sharma during the second-day match between Australia and India. Not only did this fan manage to catch the ball with one hand, but also he held on to his beer with the other.
    YouTube user bersaba commented, “Left handed no less. Can we nominate that guy for the classic catch?”
    This guy’s catch really is the stuff of legends. Cheers, mate!

  • Here is an important lesson about keeping your drone’s batteries well-charged, especially when flying it over a body of water.
    After operating his new Phantom 2 DJI all day, Zwier Spanjer scrambled to keep his precious gadget from making an unscheduled splash landing, and his valiant effort was captured on the drone’s camera.
    So what happens when a guy jumps into a pond to save his drone? A viral video. Posted on YouTube on Thursday, the video already has more than 463,000 views.
    One YouTube user already posted a video that sets the rescue to Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a novice drone pilot make a water rescue for his toy.  In another YouTube video last August, another man ran into a lake to save his dying drone, catching it just two seconds before it hit the water.
