Man Tracks Down Birth Parents, Can't Hide Tears When He Meets His Dad

This is the touching story of a New Zealand man who met his birth father for the first time. Alex Gilbert, 25, grew up in Whangarei on New Zealand's North Island after being adopted from Arkhangelsk in Russia at a very young age, was first informed about his birth father by his birth mother in 2013. Alex decided he wanted to meet his father and tracked him down all the way to Russia. Amazingly, his father had no idea that Alex even existed! Mr Gilbert was born on April 1, 1992 to Tatiana Gusovskaia and Mihail Kovkov. Mr Gilbert and his brother Andrei were adopted by New Zealanders Mark and Janice Gilbert in 1994. His father Mr Kovov wasn't aware he had a son until Mr Gilbert contacted him through social media in 2013. This brave man managed to track down his birth parents through social media with just his birth mother's name and the address of his Russian orphanage. Eventually, he found out the identity of his father and flew to Russia to meet him. When Alex first contacted Mihail, who didn’t even know he existed, he thanked his adoptive parents for raising him and he still does to this day. This video shows their special bond and also shows how their family has grown since they met for the first time in 2013. Alex is very thankful for his birth father letting him into his life. These two share a special bond and their lives have changed for the better since they met! http://instagram.com/alexgilbert http://facebook.com/nzalexgilbert http://twitter.com/alexgilbertnz Note: I own all copyright for my videos.

Adorable Lambs Put On A Hilarious Show For The Neighbors

Ireland is truly land of wonder! From their massive green fields, to the amazing people that populate the island. We can’t tell for sure if it’s the culture, or something in the water, but they are truly magical, fun loving creatures! Now we come to realize that it isn’t only the humans in Ireland that love their fair share of fun. A family of farmowners noticed their sheep were feeling quite cheeky in the field and they were more than happy to record the whole ordeal! "Well we have a field across from us with a few ewe sheep in it and they stumbled across our land and the few hay bales in the field, we noticed a few days in advance of the video being shot that they were jumping on the bales. So my father got the tractor and lined the bales up in the field in front of the house and lo and behold the three triplet lambs started to jump across the bales to our astonishment haha!! Only in Ireland we said would you see this!!" Watching those sheep jump from one bale to the next makes us think how Ireland is a fairytale land! All we know about sheep is that they bleat all the time, graze the grass and run away like crazy at the sight of the sheepdog!

This Man Has A Guardian Angel, And You're About To See Why36s

This Man Has A Guardian Angel, And You're About To See Why

Extraordinary video from China of a man miraculously escaping injury twice just moments apart. The crazed car came within inches of hitting the man when it sped down the road and brought a lamp post crashing to the ground. The CCTV footage, captured in Huludao City in northeastern Liaoning Province on November 16, shows a man walking back and forth along a curb and talking on his phone. Suddenly, an out-of-control car comes rushing into the same curb this man is standing on, after completely losing control on the road. Here’s the very fun part about this whole event. First, the man has his back turned to the direction the car is coming from. The car rams into the lamp post where the man is standing, avoiding him but still makes him jump. The guy steps out of the way, but is then nearly struck by the falling lamp post. The falling steel tube misses him too, albeit by a whisker. As if saved by a guardian angel, the pedestrian escaped the incident unharmed, though the driver suffered minor injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation. Moments like these really makes us think if there really are guardian angels out there, or some people just have really dumb luck!

Kitty Gets Really Upset When Owner Goes To Work, And Our Hearts Are Melting3m02s

Kitty Gets Really Upset When Owner Goes To Work, And Our Hearts Are Melting

Out of all the age-old questions that have been bothering people since the beginning of time, one seems to be the most mysterious of them all - how attached are cats to their human owners? Is the affection they show on their good days real or just a means of manipulating them for sustenance? Here we have the perfect test subject to demonstrate just how strongly a feline feels the absence of his human as soon as he leaves the house. Watch as this footage captures Kodi the cat after his owner leaves home, showing that he's still as Kodi-pendent as ever! As soon as Kodi realizes that he has been left at home alone with only his older brother Shorty to keep him company, the black-and-white kitty begins his search for his provider of food and love. At first he just plays with his catnip stuffed toy and seems to not mind the loneliness. But things turn for the sad when one of his claws gets stuck in the fabric of the stuffed toy and the cat really wants it his mouth, so he starts crying. Things get even more pathetic when he starts wobbling around meekly like he can't do anything about it. But his owner always leaves out an old t-shirt for him to lay on and, sure enough, there he was curled up on it when he gets home!

Kitty Is A Real Pro At Hide-And-Seek With Owner2m01s

Kitty Is A Real Pro At Hide-And-Seek With Owner

Don't just let your cat sit in the corner and eat and sleep. Play with them as much as you can (and as much as they want to). You'll both benefit! Here we see Shorty playing hide and seek with his owner. One would think that a cat, being such a good little hunter, could sniff out his owner and call him out, but apparently good old Shorty has lost his hunter's instincts to kibble and treats. We see the human running into a room and leaving the door ajar. Then, from behind the corner on the far end comes Shorty, completely alert but very confident in his ability to track down his human. He walks to the room where his owner hid, stops for a bit and then moves on to other end of the hallway, where he stops dead in his tracks. Apparently, the human isn’t there, so he lets out an exasperated tril (a sound between a meow and a purr), as if to try and call his owner out of hiding. But that didn’t work. So he goes to look for the blasted human all over the apartment! Shorty tries every sound he can think of to coax his human out of hiding, which proves that he knows nothing about playing hide and seek. Whether it was Shorty’s incessant meowing or he just felt sorry for his ignorant pet, the human emerges from his hiding place eventually.

She Heard A Strange Noise From Inside The Wall, Couldn't Believe Her Eyes When She Opened It2m49s

She Heard A Strange Noise From Inside The Wall, Couldn't Believe Her Eyes When She Opened It

Surely you are familiar with the saying “curiosity killed the cat”, which is applicable in various instances. Cats are able to get themselves in such tight places and stick there, because they saw something move and heard some kind of noise. Killer instinct and all that. But when cats are expecting their kittens, they get into these tight and dark spaces because they feel they will be safe there. Of course they can’t know what dangers might lie in those spaces, which is why this family started hearing meowing noises from behind their dry wall. Recognizing the familiar sound of kittens in distress, the woman wraps her hand in a sock to protect herself from scratches from the drywall of tiny, needle-like claws, cuts a hole in the wall, removes the insulation and starts digging behind. Feral kittens are the worst to remove from anywhere basically, unless they are famished or exhausted, but this brave woman spared her time to help these innocent little beings from remaining trapped there. Four kittens have managed to find themselves trapped inside that wall. Watch this woman's heroic efforts as she rescues them one by one. Amazing! This woman heard those same calls for help from the middle of her garden and when she dug a hole in that spot, she found a pipe she didn’t know was there and a kitten lodged tightly inside!

When surprised, it extends a large and striking head crest, which has a semicircular shape similar to an umbrella, hence the alternative name.

4-Year-Old Sings Frank Sinatra's 'My Way' In This Cute Music Video

This sweet little girl is talented beyond her years. Not only can 4-year-old Sophie Fatu sing, but she has a special place in her heart for the classics. In fact, Frank Sinatra is one of her favorite singers. This legendary musician had so many hits in his career, it is hard to pick just one iconic song. Through the years, all sorts of musicians have covered this song, but little Sophie's performance of 'My Way' tops them all. We love how she steps onto that stage with such confidence and belts out this classic, timeless tune. You can really tell that Sophie loves to sing with each and every note. As the song progresses, her voice gets more power, and she starts expressing the emotion of the song with her arms. Can you recognize the body language? There's something about little children singing with all their might that touches a special place in my heart. Who else could listen to this little cutie all day? It’s not always a case these days for young kids to be Sinatra fans, let alone know the lyrics. But tiny Sophie isn’t the only youngster who loves Sinatra. This kid is only 6, yet he loves to sing the jazz hit "Me and My Shadow". Watching little Archie belt out “Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall" made us shiver with astonishment, but when dad Matt joins in, it dawned us – this is actually a song about the two of them! That is just amazing!

Little kids think that adult life is like a walk in the park.

Cat's Mind Is Blown By The CD-ROM Drive27s

Cat's Mind Is Blown By The CD-ROM Drive

No matter how clever they are, cats will always be these silly animals that are too curious for their own good. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but if it was a scaredy cat, then that is a spectacle to see! This cat has apparently never seen a CD drive on a computer, or a computer in general. The hardware housing looks sleek and shiny and has all these lights that blink on and off forever, tingling her sense for curiosity even further. She may want to get to know this weird contraption further, but if we have learned anything about cats here, it is that wide pupils on a cat means that something rash and hilarious will ensue in a moments notice. Do. Not. BLINK! While the cat studies the housing, her owner reaches out and presses the button that opens the CD-ROM drawer. You know that that thing doesn’t just pop open right there and then; it flashes a warning light for a few second and then literally pops out! Can you guess what the cat does? That’s right - this kitty got caught off guard so much, she twitches her head with lightning speed and steps back, ready to run in a moment’s notice. But when the drawer goes back into the housing, the expression on her face is even more hilarious. Mind = blown!

Here’s What Happens When You Show A Monkey A Magic Trick

Street magic can be really fun to watch, but we have never been so happy to see a magic trick – and we weren’t nearly as excited as this adorable monkey was! In the clip below, a man settles down to show an orangutan his magic trick. For those of us watching on the screen, the trick is certainly a little “suspicious," but the monkey watches with undivided attention. The guy puts a seed from the planetree into a Styrofoam cup with a lid. He does all the usual steps street magicians do: he shows the orangutan the object, he puts it in the cup in front of him, closes the lid and shuffles it. But then he does something that no monkey will suspect, where he hides the cup underneath the glass for a sec, before bringing it back out. Then, when the man does the big reveal, the monkey responds in hilarious fashion. Do you think the monkey knows that there’s something fishy going on with the trick? Or do you think the monkey is just honestly amused by the little bit of “magic" he’s seen? Watch this man do the magic trick for the monkey and see the monkey’s absolutely precious reaction.

Huskies Go Loco When Their Owner Comes Back With A Husky Mask On

Siberian Huskies have an Arctic dog temperament, which is to say they are tough, determined, and self-sufficient. However, when they get to see their owner, also known as the pack leader, after a very long time, they turn from stubborn tufts of fur into little children. Don’t believe us? Just watch this clip! In this video from Sakon Nakhon, Thailand, a pack of Siberian husky dogs get their furry minds blown when their human shows up wearing a realistic-looking husky mask. In all that commotion, we were able to count a total of 11 of these happy tufts of fur, each one running to their owner’s side, demanding kisses and hugs. We can’t say whether it is his long absence, their utter happiness to see him after all this time, or the fact that somehow, while away, he managed to transform into one of them! He smells like their pack leader and he sure smells like him, but to see him actually look like one of them...boy, oh boy! Huskies are extremely intelligent, however, this dog isn't as eager to please her humans as other breeds, which makes her more challenging to train. Huskies do best with experienced, knowledgeable owners who insure they are continually socialized and trained throughout their lives.

Stunning Footage Of Two White Sharks Attacking One Another Will Make Your Palms Sweat 1m40s

Stunning Footage Of Two White Sharks Attacking One Another Will Make Your Palms Sweat

JAWS WARS! A vicious great white shark bursts from the water to rip into another shark. The sensational moment was caught while Adam Malski, 33, was trying to study the species, when the fish proved why it has the reputation of the ocean’s most fearsome predator. The 4.8m shark attacked the rival fish 50 miles from Australia’s shore. The larger Great White survived the encounter but the smaller shark has not been sighted since. The smaller, juvenile shark was attempting to feed on some shark bait, when the larger and older female came at it at the same time. The female snapped at the youngling, but instead of ripping a chunk, she spat it away before continuing with her feast. The rare shot was captured on camera by photographer Jason Whittle in the Neptune Islands in South Australia. Whittle said: “A smaller one came in to take the bait and without warning a bigger female charged in and opened up its mouth fully wide revealing its sharp teeth and caught the smaller shark in its mouth." He added: “It was definitely a warning not to jump the line and respect the elder, queen of the territory." While sharks are known to occasionally cannibalize their own, even their own siblings while inside the uterus during pregnancy, but it has rarely been caught on camera.

GoPro Camera Filmed Itself Being Swallowed Up By Molten Lava And Survived

A tour guide with Kilauea EcoTours wanted a very close up shot of hot lava, so his GoPro got put in the line of fire. This is the story of an innocent GoPro put in danger Have you ever wondered what it is like to be consumed by lava? This incredible footage has emerged on the internet showing the moment that a stream of lava engulfs a GoPro camera during a volcanic eruption. Although the exterior of Erik Storm’s camera was almost completely destroyed, the lens somehow survived, and Erik was able to salvage the footage from the SD card inside, which shows the mass of boiling rock slowly slipping towards the camera during the eruption of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii in 2016. As the lava reaches the lens, flickering flames briefly appear before fire completely consumes the camera. Erik Storm, the lead tour guide of Kilauea EcoGuides, was on a tour when he placed his GoPro into a crack to see if he could capture the lava flows. The resulting footage showed molten rock rolling towards the gadget which had been set up on the most active of the five volcanoes that form the archipelago's largest island, Hawaii. The camera is one tenacious trooper that can go through an extended and fiery bath in molten rock and still be somewhat functional. This is the amazing story of a tough little GoPro camera that refused to die after being hit by molten lava, bursting into flames, and somehow surviving to shoot another day. Erik was telling a story when the molten lava, which typically reaches temperatures of between 700C to 1,200C, completely engulfed his GoPro before flames started to spark around it and it caught on fire.

Homeless Dog Kisses Her Puppies One By One As Rescuers Pull Them To Safety

During the worst storm of the year in Southern California, Hope For Paws received an urgent call about a homeless Pit Bull who had just given birth 48 hours ago. So they got in the car and drove 3.5 hours to find her. Luckily, they were able to get the mama and all of her eight puppies to safety. Neighbors had been trying to save this stray Pit Bull for the past 3 months, but she just kept running away from them. However, when this rescue team approached her, she didn’t run away perhaps because her instinct to stay with her pups was too strong. In order to save her and her puppies , the rescue team had to break through the bushes and crawl into her den. The dog was clearly scared and unsure of what was going on, but Hope for Paws reassured her there was nothing to worry about. First, they befriended her by feeding her and petting her, while speaking very softly to her and allowing her to take her time. After a while, they gently put a leash on her, so she couldn’t run away. In fact, she was determined to stay with her puppies. The rescuers started to take the babies first, by allowing her to lick each of them before they were taken from her. After the puppies were safe, they had to get the mom out of the den and put her in a cage. They reunited the puppies with their mama and the mom. It turns there were eight puppies! They named the mom Rainbow and the babies Thunder, Breezy, Misty, Raindrop, Flash, Bolt, Stormy and Droplet, which are all water and storm themed. How fitting! If you’d like to adopt one of the pups or Rainbow, visit http://www.TheLittleRedDog.com. Also, please consider donating to Hope for Paws and help us save more lives: http://www.HopeForPaws.org

He Opens His Christmas Present And Seconds Later He's In Tears

Christmas came early for this Marine veteran as he received a surprise puppy present a few weeks premature to assist with his treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Peter Coukoulis has suffered with PTSD since his return to civilian life three years ago, and could barely contain his delight when mum Dena presented him with a tiny beagle on Wednesday December 7th. Oblivious to what’s about to unfold, the 26-year-old sits in the kitchen at home in Tallahassee, Florida, USA, with family gathered all around him when a neatly wrapped box is placed in front of him. As Peter opens the lid to see the adorable pooch inside, he begins to weep uncontrollably as he clutches and kisses the tiny pup, in a truly heartwarming moment of embrace. Dena says that the puppy has already changed Peter’s life because it made him happy after his three years of struggle. It is amazing how animals can help people recover from various disorders.

Driver’s Dash Cam Captures The Moment A Lost Dog Is Rescued From Certain Peril4m11s

Driver’s Dash Cam Captures The Moment A Lost Dog Is Rescued From Certain Peril

While driving to get his car checked over, user 'Welshdrive' came across a large dog in the middle of the road. It is not recommended to approach an unfamiliar dog, but the location and size of the dog meant it was only a matter of time before it got hit, possibly injuring people and killing the dog. So, the kind man did the only thing he could do at this point - he stopped his car in the middle of the road to force traffic to slow down, while he took care of the dog that was obviously distressed. “What are you doin’, doggy? What are you doin’?" the man can be heard saying on the dash cam footage. The dog sees the car stopping in the road and his demeanor changes, looking to his left and right for an opportunity to get away, should this human turn out to be hostile. When the car door opens, the dog tries to run away, scared out of its mind, but sensing kindness in the man’s voice made him stop in its tracks. Instead of running away, the pup crawled towards the human with his tail wagging. It even threw itself on its back, asking for belly scratches! Eventually it ran up to the owner's home 800 yards away, and all's well that ends well. Treat animals as you would treat humans, they have every right to live and be treated well. If you see a dog running loose on the road don't ignore it, be the person who saves it!

Rowdy Baby Gorilla Gets Disciplined By Dad In Front Of Zoo Visitors57s

Rowdy Baby Gorilla Gets Disciplined By Dad In Front Of Zoo Visitors

Shufai the baby gorilla was has a great time playing with some tree branches in Twycross ZOO until his father Oumbi decided to take them all away (since technically he's playing with his food). But when Shufai persists, Oumbi does a total dad move to let him know he's serious! The kid runs after his dad, while the 24-year-old Silverback gorilla gather all the branches from the enclosure and puts them away. Shufai’s older brother Lope knows well to stay away from dad’s path, but the gorilla youngster wants his toys back. In an effort to stop dad from removing all of his toys, Shufai tries to grab dad by the foot, but the elder puts him back in his place with a determined, but still very gentle nudge with the foot. Body language is a big deal with these giants and the baby knew that very instant that playtime is over! Instead of chasing after dad, the baby sits on his butt and contemplates his choices, before turning away and running after mom Ozala. Shufai was born on September 24, 2016 and is the third baby for 22-year-old mother Ozala and 24-year-old father Oumbi. As well as being a joyous occasion for zoo staff and visitors, the birth is an important part of conservation efforts to save the species, as the number of Western lowland gorillas in the wild has dramatically declined by more than 60% in the last 20-25 years, and scientists predict they will become extinct in the next 20 years or so.
