If Life Gives You Lemons, Give Them to This Beagle


Dog licks lemon. Dog freaks out. Dog walks away knowing better. Dog comes back for more.

We’ve all been there; we know what’s best, but that lemony-fresh goodness just keeps calling our name. Then the lemon-sour-sucky face follows. This poor beagle learns that lesson the hard way — not once, not twice, but a few dozen times.

We’ll call it perseverance though, because he refuses to just let that lemon get the best of his taste buds. So even though he nearly attacks his own tounge after biting into that yellow devil, he returns.

Someone get this dog a palette cleanser ASAP.

And we conclude with a love story. An actor broke from the script of Peter Pan to propose to the woman he loves on, and off, stage. The actor in a dog costume in the background wins the most excited award.

17 Cats That Just Can’t Deal With This Week

Though they’re much cuter about it, these cats still feel the harrowing reality of the return from a long weekend just as much as any human. Some take out their frustration on a roll of paper towels and some prefer to hide in a brick wall’s crevice.
