Eric Stonestreet's dog Coleman knows a thing or two about playing the field – and we're not just referring to his appreciation for the game of football.
"Coleman is a total ladies' man," the Modern Family star tells PEOPLE. "He's a ladies' man in that he doesn't pursue. He just sits and waits for them to come to him."
That puts the Jack Russell Terrier/beagle mix, whom Stonestreet rescued in 2000, in the same category as bachelors like George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Sure, Kanye West rented out a stadium to propose to Kim Kardashian. Prince William asked Kate to be his wife while they were on a 10-day African safari. And then there's that guy from Utah who organized a flash mob inside a Home Depot to pop the question to his boyfriend.
But there are exactly 16 reasons why the following marriage proposal is even better than any of the above romantic gestures.
A man from London named Ed wanted to propose to his longtime love, Alex, in New York City's Central Park with the help of a few pugs. He contacted the New York City Pug Meetup Group, who proved that yes, ladies and gents, dreams really do come true.
We think you should sit down for this one.
Corgis may soon make their way onto the endangered breed list, according to the Britain Kennel Club's breeders's association. There were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain this year, AFP reports. That number needs to be at 300 to stay off the vulnerable breeds list.
Corgis: the unofficial mascot of the Internet, the Queen's favorite kind of pooch, the stuff our dreams are made of. Together, we can avoid a Corgi a-paw-calypse. Just follow these seven steps:
We admire parents like Jennifer Garner and Angelina Jolie who put their families before their careers.
But if we had to make a nomination for mom of the year, it would have to go to this dog.
Quassia vom Wandsbarg the Irish setter gave birth to 17 puppies earlier this month in Lutzhorn, Germany; of the 17 newborns, 15 survived. It was the 4-year-old dog's very first litter, too.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, we'd like you to meet Diesel, an American pit bull who is a big baby at heart.
The 10-month-old dog could have used some comfort when he was a smaller puppy. He came to the North Shore Animal League America of Port Washington, N.Y., in January from Huntsville, Ala. The charming pup was adopted right away, but his owners returned him after only a couple of months due to his growing size and a skin condition. The poor pup was suffering from demodectic mange, and as bad luck would have it, got pneumonia on top of it, forcing him to be hospitalized.
We spy with our little eyes ... something particularly adorable.
And we're not just referring to Hilary Duff's Bernese mountain dog Dubois.
In a snapshot she posted Sunday, Duff's son, Luca, 19 months, photobombs this otherwise canine-focused shot of her house (sans the rest of her puppy pack).
"I spy a little luca," she writes on Twitter.
Forget the candy, parties and costumes – all we needed to see this Halloween is Bogart the maltipoo in this uh-mazing costume.
We can't get enough of this photo Allyson Busby (@MadeWithLove88) submitted to our weekly Twitter contest of her rescue pup dressed as the decorative planter.
"I don't think Bogart is too thrilled about being a Chia Pet," Busby wrote, and we can't say we disagree. Poor Bogart looks ready to leaves ... er ... leave.
Lady Gaga is mourning the loss of a family member.
The "Applause" singer, 27, stepped out in London Wednesday wearing funeral attire to pay tribute to her dog Alice, who passed away at 17.
"My puppy Alice died. We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel. My daddy is so sad, we all are, lost a member of our family," she wrote late on Tuesday.
Looks like Charles Esten has fallen for a costar ...
Meet Blue, the actor's recently adopted yellow Lab, who starred as his dog last season on Nashville. Onscreen, the dog was a gift to his character, Deacon Claybourne, from Hayden Panettiere's country vixen Juliette Barnes. Though Deacon gave the dog away to a love interest (played by Susan Misner), Esten was not prepared to say goodbye to that sweet face.
While filming the show earlier this year, he decided to welcome the pup into his own family, which includes his three kids with wife Patty.
Who let the dogs out – dressed like that?
That would be some of New York City's most creative dog owners with a vision and a simple mission: to have the best doggy Halloween costume. EVER.
The 23rd annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade included some of the funniest doggy get-ups we've seen to date, including a mysterious Barksy – a nod to British graffiti artist Banksy – and a furry pumpkin squeezed into a Starbucks cup (reminding us to imbibe the Pumpkin Spice Latte before they're taken off the menu for the season).
Here's a list of our favorite pooches, though we think all of the participants proved to be Best in Show.
