No doggone excuse is good enough for Alanis Morissette and her husband, Mario "Souleye" Treadway, who is suing a former house manager for the theft of the couple's dog.
In a lawsuit filed March 5, Treadway alleges that Maria Garcia and another family consultant, Patrick Murch, have refused to give back the couple's Chihuahua/pug mix after Garcia was relieved of her duties on Jan. 21. Treadway wants the pup, a one-time street dog, returned and is seeking $25,000 in damages and court costs.
On the NBC sitcom Growing Up Fisher, J.K. Simmons portrays the blind patriarch of a family-of-four whose guide dog is a yellow Labrador named Mel. Off-screen, the cast and crew of the show are making Mel's life a reality for one lucky person.
The show's cast, which includes Jenna Elfman, and crew have adopted an 8 week old yellow Labrador retriever named Guf (an abbreviation for the show), and will sponsor his guide dog training until he can be paired with a visually impaired person, reports Today. The pooch will be cared for by a "puppy raiser" until the age of 18 months, at which time he'll begin training at New York's Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind.

Think you've seen every possible combination of adorable animals in sweaters? Prepare to be proven wrong.
Meet the penguins of Australia's Phillip Island Nature Park. This bunch of stylish birds happily models a wide variety of sweater designs, all handmade specifically for them. But their clothing serves more than a sartorial purpose: The penguins here are being treated for feather and skin damage caused by oil spills. The sweaters keep them warm and prevent them from pecking at the oil with their beaks, reports ABC Melbourne.
The Penguin Foundation, also based on Phillip Island, is responsible for distributing these sweaters, which it gives to other wildlife rescue centers, as well. For those looking to contribute to the cause, a knitting pattern is available on their website, along with directions on where to send the finished products.
Parents, we all know Yuan Yuan's pain, don't we?
The giant panda thought she'd managed to get her cub, Yuan Zai, to bed – only to have her little one scramble away. And for a few precious minutes, Yuan Zai had her run of the enclosure at Taiwan's Taipei Zoo. (Start the above video at the 2:45 mark if you want to get straight to the action.)
But when Yuan Yuan realized where the 7-month-old cub had gotten to, she quickly came out and scooped her up by the fur. Try as Yuan Zai might, there was no convincing her mother to let her stay up late. In fact, Yuan Yuan kept a firm grasp on her baby girl until she fell back to sleep.
There are two types of dogs in this world: Those who share their ice cream and those who prefer to vacuum all that sweet goodness up in one mighty slurp without a second thought.
Thus begins the struggle for Daisy and Cooper, who attempt to put their differences aside and enjoy their sweet treat. But it's complicated. (Watch above.)
When Charity Shea brought home her now 5-month-old pup Cedar last October, the Single Ladies star was convinced that the dog would become her loyal companion and BFF.
"I thought, 'Cedar's a boy, and boys have special relationships with their moms,'" Shea recalls.
But it was her boyfriend of nine years, Karl Lindner, who ended up stealing all of the dog’s attention (and affection).
"I get jealous of him and the dog!" Shea, 30, tells PEOPLE. "They totally have a bromance! They’re in love every day, and Karl gives all of his attention to Cedar – petting him, training him, walking him ... I get no more attention."
Adds Shea: "It's like I'm kicked out!"
