12 Cute Cleveland Dogs

12 Cute Cleveland Dogs

Looks like our pups love exploring #cle just as much as we do!

I never used to be a dog person, mainly just because my family didn't own a pup while I was growing up. And now, it's hard to believe that I was ever not a dog lover. My family adopted a puppy about two years ago and she has changed my perspective on dogs and my love for these amazing animals.

So let's take a look at 12 of the cutest dogs in Cleveland and explore their favorite spots of the city. What's your dog's favorite place in Cleveland?

1. Meet Bear

Bear, better known as Bear Baby, is a 2-year-old Jack-A-Bee and knows over 10 tricks including, "roll over", "play dead", "high five", and "up turn". Her favorite activity is hiking the many trails and creeks at the local Cleveland Metroparks, exploring Edgewater Park, and of course, going to Starbucks for pupachinos.

2. Meet Murphy

Murphy and Sullivan are black lab "brothers from another mother" who love adventuring Red Wagon Farm.

S and M had some fun down on the farm yesterday!🌽☀️ It was such a beautiful day for some hay bale and corn stalk exploring 😊☀️🌽 #dogsofcle #ohiodogs

5. Meet Dewars

Dewars is a Mini Golden Doodle who loves the Indians. Did you know that Progressive Field used to hold a PuppyPalooza event where fans can bring their dogs to the park to bark on the Tribe to win? Current dog-friendly games in the city are hosted every year at the Lake County Captains and Lake Erie Monsters. So tell your pup to keep their ears perked for a dog-friendly game to attend!

45 Things Day Care Workers Say All Too Often

Toddlers are pretty much tiny, drunk people.

Being the keeper of tiny humans can be a very interesting job. You are constantly breaking up arguments, cleaning up messes, trying to keep them safe, and telling them not to do things that are well, sometimes pretty weird. They do and say the strangest things that'll make you wonder what is really going on in their little heads.

1. "No no no, don't do *something crashes to the floor* ....that."

2. "Bubbles in your mouths every body!"

3. "No, we don't eat our friend's snack."

4. "Hands to yourself."

5. "Get off of the table before you hurt yourself."

6. "Why do we even give them spoons?"

7. "We don't put toys in our mouths"

8. "Did you wash your hands?"

9. "Where do we run? Where are we right now?"

10. "Where are your shoes?"

11. "We don't talk like that here."

12. "Go tell them you're sorry"

13. "Get your finger out of your nose"

14. "Inside voices please!"

15. "Every one find a buddy."

16. "Ew ew ew, some body get me a tissue!"

17. "How did your shoes untie already? I just tied them five minutes ago."

18. "We do nice with our hands."

19. "Oh god, it's spaghetti day."

20. "Please, do not put noodles in your hair."

21. "Hold hands until we are on the play ground!"

22. "5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head..."

23. "Do you have to poop?"

24. "Well you should at least try."

25. "Why didn't you go to the potty before we went outside."

26. "If I hear "Let it go" one more time..."

27. "Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog.."

28. "Mommy and Daddy will come back, I promise."

29. "No, no biting!"

30. "She had it first, you'll just have to wait until she's done."

31. "Ew, why are you dipping everything in applesauce?"

32. "Now, are you going to eat the vegetable with the ranch or just the ranch?"

33. "Then why did you say you weren't eating snack?"

34. "Put your arms back in your sleeves."

35. *Five minutes before closing* "Where are your parents??"

36. "I finally got him to sleep, everyone be quiet."

37. *You see one eye open* "Oh no..."

38. "Wow, all your kids are still sleeping!?" (We wish we said this more often)

39. "Don't eat that, it was on the floor!"

40. "Glue the google eyes on here." *puts the eyes anywhere but there*

41. "Stop fighting over who's going to turn off the lights, you'll get a turn tomorrow."

42. "Don't shove so much food in your mouth at once, you'll choke!"

43. "Chew and swallow your food before you get up."

45. "Don't touch anything until we wash your hands!"

As weird as these small people are, they are some of the sweetest beings on the planet. And although they drive you crazy, at the end of the day, they make you love your job.

5 Scientific Reasons Aliens Could Exist

Yes, I believe in aliens. Here's why.

Here’s an odd fact about me. I believe in aliens. As in, I actively believe that life exists elsewhere in the universe. Not in the big-eyes green-head martians we see on tv, but in that there is life, and living creatures, somewhere else in our universe.

I hear a lot of people who don’t believe in this, though. While that’s fair, and everyone is absolutely entitled to their own beliefs, our universe is far too big, and we have seen far too little of it, to immediately dismiss the idea of extraterrestrial life.

Within our own small observation of our universe, we have already found a couple of planets that have ideal conditions where they could possibly house life.

Now, most of these only contain conditions that we as humans know to be livable. Undiscovered alien life could live in conditions that we would never even consider. For example, we assume all life needs warmth, and oxygen, but that might not be the case.

Life on Mars: Bowie?

The first one, is our own planet Mars. Since 1976, NASA has been doing research to try to prove that life could exist on Mars. In 1976, scientists received a transmission from a spacecraft they had on Mars, whose data showed signs of life. While this was dismissed as a fluke, since then NASA has been focused on the possibility of life on Mars.

In 2015, it was discovered that while most of the water on Mars was in in the form of frozen ice, that flowing water could be found on the planet. Flowing water is a promising sign, since it could mean that where there’s water, we might be able to find something more.

In February of this year, NASA did an experiment to determine if bacteria could exist on Mars. Since the planet is so incredibly dry, they used the Atacama desert in Chile, also known as the driest place on Earth, as a reference. It’s conditions were deemed the most similar on Earth to that of the Martian surface. Previous work had been done to try to find life, and the bacteria they had found was believed to have come from somewhere else on accident. However, when the scientists were able to come to the desert after one of the incredibly rare rainstorms, they found life. Microbes had adapted to survive in the desert. So if something could survive in the desert, why not Mars?


Another subject of potential life is Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons. While the conditions there are incredibly cold, NASA has gotten good news in terms of what lies under the frozen surface of the planet, good enough for them to deem the moon as “Perhaps the most promising place to look for present-day environments suitable for life.” What they found? Water. And a lot of it.

Under the thick icy crust of the planet, an ocean exists that goes deep in the planet. Incredibly deep. Scientists estimate that the total depth is somewhere between 40 and 100 miles deep. For reference, on Earth, our deepest ocean is just under 7 miles deep. If we can’t even imagine what lies on the bottom of our own oceans, there’s no telling what could exist in that ocean under the ice. But scientists are certainly excited.

Trappist 1

In 2017, NASA released an incredibly exciting discovery to the public. The discovery of the habitable conditions of a nearby solar system: Trappist 1. Located about 39 light years away from our solar system, it is far, but the conditions are deemed incredibly similar to Earth, and NASA has deemed that most of the 7 planets could sustain life on them.

It is a small solar system, with the sun just a little larger than Jupiter. Each of the 7 planets is close enough to the star to fit in between the distance from our Sun to Mercury. The orbital period of the furthest planet from the star is 18.76 days. Their year lasts a little over half of one of our months.

Nevertheless, it’s certainly an exciting find. And while none of us might live there, something else certainly could.

The "Wow" Signal

The Universe we live in is estimated to be around 46 billion light years large. That’s larger than we can even begin to comprehend, but it’s believed that universes can possibly exist past that. We have an infinite amount of space out there, and it’s too big for Earth to be the only anomaly.

There are about 100 billion galaxies in our universe. In our own galaxy, the Milky Way, there is an estimated number of 100 billion stars, each in varying size and shape to our own Sun. But each of these billions of stars could, and most are, similar to our Sun in that they have planets orbiting them. Just like our incredibly livable Earth orbits our Sun.

So in these trillions of planets that exist within our galaxy, and the trillions of billions more that exist in our Universe, we can’t be the only one with life. Somewhere else out there has to have life.

We’re not alone; it would be almost impossible for us to be.
