The bond between an elephant family is not to be underestimated. These dynamic, highly intelligent creatures share many things in common with human beings, one of which being the importance they hold for protecting members of their family. We have seen an elephant mother dig for 11 hours straight to rescue her baby from a well, and another small elephant traverse over 30 miles to find her mother. Elephants might have well as coined the phrase “family first.”

Dogs are called "man's best friend" - women's, too - and scientists say the bond between people and their pooches may be deeper than you might think. Researchers in Japan said on Thursday oxytocin, a hormone that among other things helps reinforce bonds between parents and their babies, increases in humans and their dogs when they interact, particularly when looking into one another's eyes. They described a series of experiments that suggest that people and their canine companions have mutually developed this instinctual bonding mechanism in the thousands of years since dogs were first domesticated.

The untold human suffering and property damage left in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan has been well-documented, but there’s another population that suffered greatly that few have discussed – the animals left behind in the radioactive exclusion zone. One man, however, hasn’t forgotten – 55-year-old Naoto Matsumura, a former construction worker who lives in the zone to care for its four-legged survivors.

Now at nearly 12-years-old, Smiley has led a happy, healthy life, despite his rough start. Smiley, a golden retriever rescued by Joanne George of Stouffville, Canada, was born with dwarfism and without eyes. Thanks to George, the gentle pup became a certified therapy dog through the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program. He spends his days comforting and inspiring patients in hospitals and nursing homes and helping kids in schools focus on their reading.http://tinyurl.com/mpnk2c6
