Chipmunk gets student a free pass out of class
Just before logging onto a Zoom class, Mackenzie Leedy spotted a chipmunk swimming in his pool. But it didn’t look like the little guy was freestyling for fun, and Leedy saw that he was starting to sink. Calling him “buddy,” he rescued him with a pool skimmer. But Buddy wasn’t out of the woods (er, pool area) yet and was shaking uncontrollably, rolled over on his back. Leedy wrapped him up in a towel and brought him walnuts. After showing Buddy to the class, his teacher took pity on him and let him go early to care for the chipmunk. Finally, the sun came out, and after eating a few nuts, the little guy was back on his way. “Every time I see a chipmunk, I kinda hope it’s him,” Leedy told the Dodo.
Dog proves that sometimes you just gotta be you
There’s always one person in every group picture who has to do their own thing, and the same is true for Shiba Inu siblings Hina, Sasha, Kikko, and Momo. Their human mom, Yoko Kikuchi, loves to take pictures of all four dogs lined up, but in every portrait, it seems like Hina is pulling a face or doing some pose that is completely opposite from her siblings. She’s definitely the spirit animal for some people we know.

Monkeying around with a phone
Zackrydz Rodzi, a 20-year-old Malaysian man, plugged in his phone before going to sleep only to find the device missing the next morning. There were no signs of a break-in, and he had no idea who could have taken it. After his father mentioned that he had seen a monkey hanging around nearby, Rodzi searched the forest behind his house and found the phone buried in some mud. His uncle joked that maybe the monkey just wanted to take some selfies, so Rodzi checked the photo gallery. “I was shocked. The suspect’s face was plastered on the screen. It was hilarious,” he told the AP. No word on whether the ape mastered the “fish lips” pout or how to work his angles.
