    The newly-opened guesthouse “Polesie” in Chernobyl, Ukraine, can accommodate 100 people in its 42 rooms, which have everything for comfortably living in the exclusion zone: showers, TV and free Wi-Fi.

    The city of Chernobyl is infamous for the catastrophic nuclear disaster that occurred in April 1986, after which the area was locked down. Since 2003, the United Nations Development Program launched a project called the Chernobyl Recovery and Development Program for the recovery of the affected areas.

      Every doggo needs a good snack in the middle of the day to get some energy for running, playing fetch, and barking at everyone. Canines are very good hunters, so they can always go and catch some food, but it may be a bit difficult for them to get sweets - as then they need help from their human friends.

      Self-Control: Hilarious Golden Retriever Won't Eat Doughnuts

      Every doggo needs a lot of energy for everyday shenanigans, and this means they require a lot of food - in fact, when a canine sees something tasty it's almost impossible to stop them from eating that right there.
