Mom Spots Trash Bag ‘Walking’ In The Road, Then Rips It Open To Find A Dog Who’s Very Much Alive

Malissa Sergent Lewis was running late to work. To make it quickly to the elementary school where she works, she took a shortcut through the quiet, remote backroads of Kentucky.

It was then and there that she made a startling discovery, and one that changed the course of her life.

The mother of three spotted a black trash bag in the middle of the street. Even from a distance, she could tell the bag was moving and shifting. There was definitely something inside.

The closer she got, the more it seemed like whatever was in that bag was trying to walk its way across the road. Malissa pulled out her cellphone as she slowly drove up to the bag.

The creature inside could sense Malissa’s presence, and started walking over towards her on the concrete as best it could.

It didn’t matter that it could have been a dangerous animal — Malissa tore into the bag anyway, disregarding the knot tied tightly at the top.

But when Malissa peeked inside, she couldn’t believe her eyes…

On the morning of August 25, 2016, Malissa Sergent Lewis decided to take the backroads to work at her elementary school in Kentucky.

She never expected to make such a shocking discovery.

Malissa spotted a trash bag in the middle of the road. “The closer I got, I realized it was moving”.

She pulled out her cellphone to hit record. Whatever it was, she decided right then and there that she was going to get it out.

Sensing someone was close, the creature inside the bag started eagerly walking its way toward Malissa as she hopped out of her car to inspect.

It could have easily been an angry possum or some other dangerous animal, but that didn’t stop her from tearing into the bag and peeking inside…

…And there was a puppy. An adorable, grateful and incredibly lucky puppy.

As soon as he saw Malissa’s face, he began wagging his tail. Malissa says it was if he knew he was going to be okay.

Malissa took to Facebook to post her shocking video, along with a message: “If this is your puppy, let me know. If you are the scoundrel who put it in a garbage bag and tossed it on the side of the road…’re a sicko”

The puppy was wearing a collar, but had no identification. Malissa scooped him up and took him to work with her.

That evening, Malissa and her sons took the puppy to the vet for shots and an examination. Miraculously, he was healthy!

The vet said he couldn’t be more than 8 weeks old. It’s a complete mystery as to why this happened… and why someone would do this.

Animal Control and the Sheriff’s Department are looking into who could have possibly committed this horrible act.

Meanwhile, Malissa and her sons have decided to keep the puppy. She says her sons are absolutely in love with him.

Fittingly, they’ve named him Hefty.

“He is playful,” Malissa told LittleThings. “We were just talking about how resilient he was. He romps around playing with his new toys. He’s good natured. Even the day that I brought him into the school where I work the day I found him, he was precious. The guidance counselor, Mrs. Kelly is a big animal lover, she took the pup to visit second grade and the kids loved him.”

Not only was Malissa in the right place at the right time to discover Hefty, but she was exactly the right person to drive by at that very moment.

Other people might not have given the trash bag a second glance. Or they might have just ignored it and continued on their way.

But not Malissa — she followed her instincts and took a major risk — and look at the incredible miracle she’s been given in return.

Please SHARE Malissa’s story, and Hefty’s journey, with your friends on Facebook.

Portraits of Maine Coon Cats Who Look Like Majestic Mythical Creatures

Photographer Robert Sijka sheds new light on one of the internet’s most beloved creatures, cats. The Hong Kong-based creative focuses his attention on the Maine Coon, the largest breed of domesticated felines. Their distinctive appearance includes long fur that frames their face like a lion, in addition to a robust build—they can grow up to nearly four feet in length.

Despite this physically-imposing stature, Maine Coons have earned the nickname gentle giant with personalities that are akin to canines rather than other type of cats. This combination of looks and temperament makes them an ideal subject for Sijka’s dramatic images. Photographed against a dark background, the fuzzy felines entrance you with their striking yellow eyes and serious gaze.

There’s also an undeniably mythical quality to Sijka’s images. The cats’ perfectly-coiffed fur and soft lighting ignites our imagination, and it’s easy to picture them as majestic creatures in charge of guarding an old royal court.

This High School Cross-Country Team Takes Lonely Shelter Dogs On Their Morning Runs

Members of the St. Joseph High School cross-country team in California invited more than a dozen shelter dogs to accompany them on their morning run this week.

Each teammate was paired with a dog from the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter before heading out for a long run as one big happy group.

"I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun ... the dogs or the kids," coach Luis Escobar said. "Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon."

Hopefully this becomes a regular thing, and that it inspires other schools to try it out, too!

Watch the video here:

Got a pretty cool cross country team (& coach!). Taking dogs from the animal shelter on a Morning Jog! If you see a dog you like, go adopt!

THIS Grizzly Bear Slowly Climbs Up The Pool Ladder. What He Does Seconds Later? EPIC!

Grizzly bears are known to have an inherent need and ability to explore, and according to the “Western Wildlife Outreach” they are highly intelligent creatures. Both their memory and “smarts” are cultivated and exhibited by both their need and talent in tracking down sources of food.

Their ability to reason, as you will see in this AMAZING VIDEO below, isn’t limited to their survival instincts in getting fed. Can you imagine having all that fur on you in the heat of summer? I, myself can’t “bear” being out in summer heat without water to cool off; (forgive the pun)!

The “National Wildlife Federation” has done research on Grizzlies, that show their exceptional talent as SWIMMERS, but diving?!? Get ready to watch this bear cool off in an above ground pool, in the most astoundingly human-like movements, that will amaze and give you a good laugh for the day!

Please share this Hilarious video with your family and friends!
