Dog treat theft gets interrupted when owner arrives home

Coming home to an open pantry isn't always a big deal or a surprise, specially when you have children. But this day it was quite funny. After arriving home after running errands, Brent noticed the pantry open and he knew it was closed or almost closed when they left. Looking around he noticed a definite clue as to whom was lurking around while he was gone. Upon closer examination it was clear..... there was a dog treat thief in the house. Now Poncho, Brent and Elsa's rescue dog from Mexico, has a number of quite hilarious quirks. Almost ever time either Brent or Elsa returns home from being out and about, something is noticed misplaced. Many times it is a shoe moved from a shoe rack in the den to Poncho's bed, or a couch. Never chewed but always moved. Some days it may be a entry way carpet all scrunched into a ball, as Poncho is known for "making a nest" or something similar. Some days Brent wonders if Poncho was sitting on the couch reading the newspaper because his reading glasses, which were on the kitchen table, mysteriously have appeared on the living room couch. Poncho is a pretty keen pooch, so you just never know if she is reading up on "100 ways to be a better dog" in the local paper. Watch and enjoy one of Ponchos funny ways, and see just how adorable of a pet she is to Brent and Elsa. Poncho's expressions after the theft will melt your heart. What a great dog. She is definitely loved and she knows it. Just look at those eyes!

Border Collie answers owners questions by nodding head22s

Border Collie answers owners questions by nodding head

We all talk to our dogs on a regular basis. We often even ask them questions, but have you ever actually expected your pet to answer? Here we see something quite unimaginable! This smart Border Collie actually answers his owners questions by shaking his head yes and no! When asked if he ate his owners shoe, he responds by head shaking "no". His owner, clearly upset over the chewed show asks if he is sure he didn't eat the shoe and he shakes his head yes. After the interrogation continues, he seems to get confused with his answers and changes his mind. He may know what yes and no are, but he really has to think about it!His answer starts to change as she keeps asking him about this shoe, and maybe it is pressure of the questioning, or maybe he really is guilty, but he seems to get flustered and change his story! We see guilt here! We have the incredible urge to keep asking him more questions and see what he comes up with. If he has learned how to shake his head and answer questions, maybe he is capable of having a full conversation? Border Collies have the ability to learn more then 200 words of the English language. That is equivalent to a two or three year old child. They understand most things their owners say to them, and if they don't, they will turn their head and listen really hard until they figure out what the word or phrase means. As you can see here, they are capable of learning anything you teach them including left from right, up from down and what color is what. We are impressed with this smart and adorable dog and hope that really is innocent and didn't eat that shoe!

Tiny, furious reef fish chases away much larger Queen Triggerfish1m10s

Tiny, furious reef fish chases away much larger Queen Triggerfish

The Queen Triggerfish is one of the most beautiful, yet bizarre looking fish in the ocean. This gorgeous fish seemed to be interested in a sandy spot between patches of coral on the reef surrounding Little Cayman Island. It acted as if it was seeking a spot to build a nest, or it was possibly guarding eggs already laid in a nest. But another fish that was intent on guarding its own spot was lurking nearby. A Spotted Damselfish, known for its aggressive and territorial nature was angry about the presence of the larger fish. Each time the Queen Triggerfish ventured too close, the Spotted Damselfish reacted furiously, attacking the big fish and biting it. Unable to out-swim the smaller fish, the Queen Triggerfish was forced to swim away and try to avoid the little aggressor. But each time it returned to the spot that it was working at, the Spotted Damselfish emerged with renewed vigor and enthusiasm and put the run on it again. Spotted Damselfish are like the Pomeranians of the ocean. These are the dogs that are known as Lion Dogs, believed to be unaware of their small stature. They will bark and growl at much larger animals as if they have a hope of overpowering them. The Spotted Damselfish is equally aggressive and will even attack and bite a swimmer who ventures too close to their lair. This Queen Triggerfish is an interesting creature. They are highly intelligent and will cruiso over the reef in search of crabs or small conch shells, their favourite food. They blow water under shells or flip them over and watch for the creatures to emerge to right themselves. At that moment they will rush in and grab their prey. They use the same tactic for sea urchins to expose the underside where the spines are the shortest. They are also able to change colour to match their surroundings to aid in camouflage.

Mysterious underwater tunnels at Bloody Bay Wall, Cayman Islands2m05s

Mysterious underwater tunnels at Bloody Bay Wall, Cayman Islands

Scuba diving allows the adventurous to explore places that few people will ever see. The allure of the deep is powerful and those who seek the thrills offered by diving are eager to answer the call. The ocean provides a look at new landscapes and new creatures, unlike anything that can be experienced above the surface. Little Cayman Island offers some of the most beautiful dive sites in the world. The island was formed by volcanic action as rock shot straight up from the ocean floor millions of years ago. The island is surrounded by a coral reef that grew on this volcanic rock long ago. A diver venturing out over the edge of the reef is met with an abyss that plunges an incredible 6,000 feet almost straight down. The vast blue emptiness can send a chill down a person's spine as they slip over the wall and descend to the depths below. But there is another way to travel from the shallows to the deep. The coral and rock around this island has a number of tunnels that lead down into the rock and curve out toward the open ocean. Cave diving and exploring tunnels is a way to take the thrills to a new level as divers squeeze through dark and narrow caverns and passageways that lead out over the wall. It is not for the faint of heart. Advanced divers undergo serious training and preparation for diving such as this. They have practiced under controlled conditions so that they will be able to react proper;y f they encounter trouble. In the middle of a tunnel, there will be no going to the surface, even if their air supply fails. They will need to rely on their skills and their partner's ability to solve their problem until they can exit the tunnels and make their way carefully back to the boat. These divers will explore a part of the earth that has only been seen by a few hundred people. The huge sponges that have made their home here have been growing and filtering the ocean for food for over 500 years. Some have been here since before the island saw its first human settlement in the 1700s when a fishing village began. These sponges are actually animals, although their stationary existence might have us confuse them with plants. The tunnels are also home to corals, lobsters, crabs, shrimp, and strange and wonderful fish. Scuba diving on its own is a unique adventure, but exploring hidden passages and seeing creatures within is an experience that is unforgettable.

Giant barracuda poses for video and then flashes teeth44s

Giant barracuda poses for video and then flashes teeth

Great barracuda are enormous and intimidating fish. They can grow to 6 feet in length and weigh as much as 55 pounds. With a mouth full of huge, razor sharp teeth, they are a scary sight. But the seasoned scuba diver knows that they are no threat to people. They often venture close to divers or allow a respectful approach for a close up look. Barracuda have few predators when they reach maturity and they swim casually over the reef, unafraid. This is for for good reason. Few creatures would ever consider them a source of food. A 6 foot long barracuda doesn't even need to fear humans. Even if a person wanted to tangle with one, the meat is often inedible due to the buildup of toxin called ciguatera. The source of this poison is a type of plankton. Consumed by fish and then passed up the food chain, the concentrations of ciguatera are higher in predators at the top of the chain. Barracuda will often swim along beside or behind scuba divers for several reasons. Believing that humans might be likely to kill a fish, they will often wait for the possibility of scraps becoming available. They also hope for opportunities created by the distraction that divers present to other fish. This might turn into an opportunity of an ambush of a fish. People are understandably terrified of the fish, mistaking their interest as predatory and dangerous. While there have been incidents involving barracuda biting people, it is very rare and almost always the case of mistaken identity. Barracuda are also rumored to be attracted by shiny objects that may appear to be the scales of a fish. With the huge canine like teeth that a barracuda possesses, the mouth is a frightening sight to anyone. The barracuda will often open it's mouth wide and snap it shut several times. As it appears, this is threatening behavior that may be caused by the perception that the barracuda's territory is being invaded or that the approach is making the fish uncomfortable. It is also a dominance behavior, an effort to remind other fish that the barracuda is the boss in that area. Once they become convinced that the barracuda will not normally attack, divers take great delight in seeing one such as this one so close up. Here, a careful and respectful approach has paid off and the barracuda stares curiously into the camera for a minute or so before drifting away. As he does, he flashes those impressive teeth and shows off a row of spikes as large as a very big dog's. Barracuda are capable of impressive bursts of speed and can easily distance themselves from a diver with a few rapid strokes of their powerful tails. This barracuda was certainly not worried about the divers sharing his spot over the coral.
