Somebody get this super dog a cape!

A tiny Chihuahua named Chloe from Federal Way, Washington, barked until her sleeping family woke up during a house fire – and she's being credited with saving their lives.

"My mom's little 5-lb. Chihuahua started barking when she saw the smoke," Devon Whittlesey told ABC 13 News. "Smoke was pouring into my room. I dropped down to my hands and knees and crawled to the front door."

Whittlesey and two other residents made it out fast thanks to the barking, but Chloe wasn't so lucky.

The World's Ugliest Dog Gets a Makeover

Update 06/26/2014 02:00 PM Originally posted 06/26/2014 01:25 PM

The organizers of the World's Ugliest Dog Contest say that their annual event proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or, more accurately, in the eye of the leash holder.) This year's winner, a Chihuahua-Shih Tzu mix named Peanut, is just the latest example of their unofficial motto. We're not sure what kind of effect that title has on a dog's self-esteem, but last night Jimmy Kimmel did his part to make sure that little Peanut feels better about himself.

The Daily Treat: Lassie Lands a Paw-Some Internship at PEOPLE

Meet PEOPLE's New Summer Intern: Lassie!

Here's one intern who's working like a dog this summer!

It was meetings, brainstorms and, yes, more meetings when Lassie – a 10th-generation descendant of Pal, the pup who played the original fictional dog in movies and on TV – came to the PEOPLE offices for a résumé-building internship. (Hey, even this legendary canine needs a well-rounded education.)

The world's most beloved collie began her day with a pow-wow (er, bow-wow?) with Editorial Director Jess Cagle, who asked the pup to make like Barbara Walters and come up with questions for cover subject Hillary Clinton. Clearly, the dog days of summer are very exciting around here!

Anne Hathaway's New Puppy Is a 'Little Gentleman'

Originally posted 06/18/2014 10:15 AM

Adopting a pet is a big decision – one Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, didn't take lightly.

"They were looking for a companion for [their chocolate Lab] Esmeralda," says Teri Austin, president of The Amanda Foundation, the Beverly Hills rescue where the couple adopted a terrier mix last week. "Adam came in first. Then when Anne was in town the following week, they spent a long time with one litter. We always like people to sleep on it. They wanted to do that, too."

Why Eli Manning's Dog Is a Pool Shark

Just like his quarterback dad, Eli Manning's dog, Chester, has to be quick on his feet.

"He has two babies running around, and so, finally, the oldest has stopped grabbing the tail, but he's got a new 1-year-old," the New York Giants quarterback says of his daughters, Ava, 3, and Lucy, who turns one on June 17. "But he's gotten used to that and understands – he's been sweet and doing great."

Though an ankle injury sidelined the athlete last season, he was given the all-clear to hit the green at New York's Mount Kisco Country Club on Monday for the 37th Annual Guiding Eyes for the Blind Golf Classic, where he putted with a blindfold over his eyes to see exactly what it's like to play with a visual impairment (watch him swing in the video below).

The 33-year-old football player – and dog lover! – also met pups who serve as the eyes for so many people, like 20-month-old Jansen (left), a yellow Lab and guide dog-in-training.
