If you think you don't need a weird dog video to get you through this pandemic, you're mistaken

A friend sent me this video and my first thought was "What on earth am I watching right now?" Then I busted out laughing.

Sometimes you just don't know what's going to hit your funny bone, and talking animals has never really been my chosen brand of humor. But when a dog named Pluto tells you how to avoid having to use toilet paper and explains how to get snacks when grocery shelves are emptied due to pandemic panic hoarding, and it does so in a hilariously adorable voice, I don't know. It's just funny.


I would say maybe it's just me, but this video has been shared 187,000 times. So no, it's not just me. Thank goodness. I thought maybe I was starting to literally go a little stir crazy.

So meet Pluto, the weirdly lovable talking dog and unexpected pandemic humor hero.

Just...trust me.

P.S. Pluto has his own Facebook page now if you want more of this oddly hilarious dog in your life.

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Welcometoterranova and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Welcometoterranova-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
