THE DOGGIE SCHOOL BUS
As the Youtube page tells us:
”Arat Montoya might just be the happiest man in the world as he gets to drive the doggie school bus. He has five acres for the dogs to run and play on while they are at his doggie daycare.”
3D crosswalks are becoming almost commonplace. Here is a student explaining why she lobbied for one near her school.

SYNCHRONIZED FIREFLIESThe YouTube page explains:
”For a few short weeks each year, Elkmont Ghost Town in Smoky Mountains National Park becomes the site of the most magnificent synchronized firefly (Photinus carolinus) gathering in the world.
“Resembling an odd forest rave party, male fireflies enter the mating season by flashing their lights brightly four to right times in unison for about ten seconds, followed by a eight to twelve second darkness in which females may respond with their lights.
“Overwhelmed by the tourist onslaught in the recent years, National Park Service now restricts the number of people who visit Elkmont during the peak of firefly season.”
WATCHING A DOG MOTHER TEACH HER PUPS TO BE CALM
From the YouTube page:
”Rosalie is an experienced dog mother. This is her last litter (she just had 4). She wants to enter the puppy room in peace but her puppies are too excited. She also wants to teach them to stop drinking milk anymore.
“When the puppies are getting calm Rosalie starts taking care of them. With this behavior she teaches them that the only way to success (in this case being together with the mother) includes a calm energy level.”
