A channel described by The Irish Mirror as ‘positive & inspiring’ is exactly what we could all do with right now!

From videos that will make you tear up with joy to Will Smith jumping out of a plane. This channel is sure to help you see the bright side and smile that bit more!
Want to smile from ear to ear within seconds? Pets lower stress and depression, in fact even watching fish can even ease tense muscles. No wonder we’re all addicted to dog memes & cat TikToks! The Dodo take’s all of that, wraps it in a layer of cuteness and delivers it in bucket loads. Want to see an adorable baby otter swim for the first time? Tick! Just after cute fluffy dogs? Tick! After a video of a Hippo teasing a Crocodile? Tick! As their channel describes, they want people to fall in love with animals, be entertained while they’re doing it, and feel empowered to help animals in need. What a better way to bring some positivity to your day!
