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.
It's a phenomenon we can't quite explain, but seems to still be going strong: pets behaving like Miley Cyrus.
And the latest entrant into that elite group is Tottie the pug – albeit with a twist. Instead of dressing as the "We Can't Stop" singer herself, Tottie is dressed as her most famous accessory of late: her wrecking ball. Playing the part of Cyrus in this scenario? A nude Barbie doll.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month and in honor of the wonderful rescue dogs out there, we're introducing you to pets-in-waiting all throughout October. Today, we'd like you to meet Daisy, a Great Pyrenees mix with a gentle soul.
Sadly, the 4-year-old has not had an easy life. "She was originally owned by a family that kept her in an outside pen," says Grace Kelly, owner of Finding Shelter, a rescue based in Norristown, Pa. "They wanted her to be a working farm dog. She was expected to be a herder."
When that didn't work out, the family sold her to another one, who put her on an outside chain for two months. "They finally dropped her off at a local shelter because they said she wasn't friendly to their other dogs," says Kelly.
Giant George, formerly the world's tallest dog, passed away last Thursday.
"It is with a heavy heart that we announce Giant George died last night. George passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones; one month before his eighth birthday," his owners David and Christine Nasser announced on Facebook.
Measuring 3 ft., 7 in. from paw to shoulder, Guinness World Records crowned the Great Dane the Tallest Living Dog and Tallest Dog Ever back in 2010. Even though he weighed in at nearly 250 lbs., "He's just the sweetest, kindest dog, and he doesn't realize what all the hoopla is about," Guinness spokesperson Jamie Panas told PEOPLE at the time. "I was completely awestruck."
It was a weekend to remember for Andy Cohen – the Watch What Happens Live host adopted his first dog!
"I've been thinking about a dog for a while," Cohen tells Bravo's The Dish of the beagle/foxhound mix he adopted from New Jersey's See Spot Rescued on Friday. "I just felt like I wanted to open my life up to a dog and I thought rescuing a dog was the right way to go."
The Bravo personality, 45, has named the rescue pup Wacha, in honor of Michael Wacha, the pitcher of his favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals. And so far, potty training has been a home run.
Now there's a first world problem we'd love to share with Julianne Hough. The actress posted an Instagram photo Thursday of why she was having a difficult time preparing for her next film role.
"It's hard to learn lines when you're distracted with kisses," Hough wrote, sharing photos of her being licked by Cavalier King Charles spaniels Harley and Lexi.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month and in honor of the wonderful rescue dogs out there, we're introducing you to pets-in-waiting all throughout October. Today, we'd like you to meet Scruffy, a happy terrier mix who's searching for a dedicated owner to help with his separation anxiety.
Does Scruffy's face seem familiar to you? That's because he's a dead ringer for Uggie, the adorable furry star of 2011's The Artist, and just like his onscreen alter ego, Scruffy is extremely loyal.
Not too long ago, he charmed someone into bringing him home from the Harvest Hills Animal Shelter in Fryeburg, Me., but, sadly, he was returned because of a lifestyle change.
By now, midway through October, you've probably tasted your first pumpkin spice latte of the season (although that's more than we can say for this unhappy lion). The drink is as synonymous with the start of fall as sweaters, leaves and other things we learned from rom-coms.
But now, there's a way for you to enjoy the season with your pet.
Behold: the pugskin spice latte. Twitter user @singalittleflat crafted the ultimate (and caffeinated!) Halloween costume for her furry buddy, who dons the signature Starbucks lid as a cap and a cardboard recreation of its cup holder around its waist.
A Starbucks creation that's D.I.Y. and calorie-free? We'll take a venti.
