Sometimes the best reward after a long week is a hot shower.
That nasty email you received, the comments your annoying boss made and the memories of the vending machine eating all of your quarters simply roll off your back and spiral down the drain. Consider it a paper shredder for your mind and body.
This pup bathing in a sink reminds us of our favorite stress reliever and, by the looks of things, we're pretty sure the dog is trying to fur-get some unpleasant happenings during his week, too.
Just as they are in the office, dog park politics can be brutal.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Reggie, a Catahoula/hound mix from the Eleventh Hour Rescue in Rockaway, New Jersey.
Under this 2-year-old pup's shy exterior is a lot of charm. "Reggie is a fun, loving, sensitive young guy," says rescue volunteer Kristy Stracuzzi. "He loves a good game of fetch and a perfect day for him would be a hike and any activity outdoors with his people."
The sweet dog was plucked from a Tennessee shelter and somehow lost a little confidence along the way, so it can take some time for him to trust people. "But once he does," adds Stracuzzi, "you will forever have his loyalty."
What's cuter than a puppy? A shirtless man holding a puppy, or a different shirtless man mocking a shirtless man holding a puppy?
One is a rugged, versatile hunter conditioned to withstand frosty Hungarian winters. The other is a happy-go-lucky companion from the island of Madagascar. Both will join the pack at the Westminster Kennel Club show next year.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Carly, and 18-month-old terrier mix who wishes her forever home could be the dog park.
Since her arrival in May at the Humane Society Silicon Valley of Milpitas, California, Carly has really come out of her shell. Although she was initially quite shy, she's decided the dog park is where it's at – so she'll welcome any opportunity to go there and play with the other dogs.
Dogs do amazing things for us in our time of need. They make us laugh when we're sad, rescue us when we're in danger, carry our groceries when we're lazy (If you missed the one dog on the planet who does that, click here.)
Charlie the dog opens and closes doors all by himself. This is a great thing if your arms are full with groceries, but it's something else entirely if you don't feel like spending your afternoon at the dog park.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Digit, a 4-year-old shepherd mix waiting for his forever home at the North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington, New York.
Everything changed for Digit six months ago when his family gave him up because they were moving to an apartment that didn't allow dogs. Living in a busy shelter with lots of dogs and cats is a far cry from the quiet home he once knew – so it takes time for him to warm up and trust new people.
A Jack Russell terrier that went missing from its Pennsylvania home has turned up at an animal shelter nearly 3,000 miles away.
A good Samaritan this month spotted the 7-year-old dog named Gidget wandering in the Portland suburb of Tualatin, and brought her to the Bonnie L. Hays Animal Shelter, said Deborah Wood, manager of Washington County Animal Services.
Wood said Wednesday that a microchip implanted in Gidget revealed that the owner lived near Philadelphia. Contacted by the shelter, the owner said her dog has been missing since April 22, two days after Easter.
Whenever the Museum of Modern Art needs more masterpieces, Jimmy Choo will be a shoe-in.
The English bull terrier is the subject of the amazing portraits on Rafael Mantesso's Instagram page, which has garnered nearly 60,000 followers to date.
The 5-year-old dog is capturing the hearts of many with his hilarious poses, including one as an angel, another as a bank robber and one with a bra covering his eyes. It's hard to believe the whimsical images – which are often accompanied by a cute cartoon drawing by Mantesso – came from something quite sad.
