  • The hottest ticket in California at the end of February may not be for the Oscars. It just might be this invitation to a toddler’s first birthday party.
     
    Calvin Le came up with the ultimate way to invite friends and family to his almost 1-year-old son Evan’s big bash on Feb. 21. He included an electric dance music (aka EDM) video for the event’s private Facebook invitation. The video features little Evan playing the role of DJ, sporting cool headphones while he’s working the turntable.

    “The equipment is part of a video game called DJ Hero.” Calvin told Yahoo News. “I am totally into the EDM scene. Evan started playing with the equipment, and I thought maybe I could film this and include it in our Facebook invite.” Friends enjoyed the video so much that they encouraged Calvin to post it to YouTube.
     
    Calvin might have a leg up in the video production game; he owns Calvin Le Films in San Francisco, which specializes in wedding videography.

  • It’s a classic tale of a puppy whose bark is definitely worse than his bite.
     
    In a new viral video, an 8-week-old bulldog named Humphrey attempts to take on his greatest foe to date — a plastic water bottle. This little guy pulls out his best moves to challenge his new mortal enemy, including relentless barking and a sneak attack.
     
    Alas, Humphrey does not defeat the water bottle in the end, but he has received a lot of positive comments from YouTube users.
     
    Dean Thomas writes, “i am reporting this to youtube for being too adorable.”
     
    And Oscar Hildebrand comments, “36 seconds of Adorable !!!”
     
    But perhaps the best comment of them all came from the water bottle’s manufacturer, Cool Ridge: “Hydration is nothing to be scared of little canine friend. Hopefully this is just a phase you grow out of - Cool Ridge HQ.”

    “Je suis Charlie.” By now, if you have been watching TV or browsing the Internet, you have heard that phrase in support of free speech and empathy for the victims of the shootings in Paris. But while all eyes were on last week’s terror attacks in France, another crisis was unfolding in Africa, one that you might not have even heard about. And now people on social media are trying to change that.
     
    The hashtag campaign #PrayForNigeria launched to bring attention to deadly attacks in Nigeria by Boko Haram.
     
    Up to 2,000 Nigerians were killed when the Islamist militant group stormed the town of Baga with explosives and assault rifles last week.
     
    Amnesty International has called the attack the group’s “deadliest massacre” to date.
     
    As with many tragedies, people have taken to Twitter to bring attention to the events in Nigeria. Terrorism analyst Max Abrahms tweeted: “it’s shameful how the 2k people killed in boko haram’s biggest massacre gets almost no media coverage.”

    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!
     
    Do you take your feline or canine friends along on vacations? If so, we would love to see your photos! Share them with us on our Facebook page.
