When one New Yorker learned his dog was dying, he decided he didn't want to wait until his pet's last day on earth to give his friend of 16 years a special experience.
For Miranda Lambert, home is where her dogs are.
The singer is currently mother to six adorable pups – Waylon, Bellamy, Cher, Delta Dawn, Jessi and Black Betty – but probably not for long. "I have a little plaque in my house that says: 'There is always room for one more dog,'" she tells PEOPLE.
Lambert, 30, has been rescuing strays since she was a little girl, but it was her first shelter dog, Delilah, who inspired her to found the MuttNation Foundation. "I started the foundation in 2009 along with my mom and two other board members, with the mission of raising funds to help dogs and shelters," she shares.
Ever wonder what it's like to get a piggyback ride from a whale?
This amazing YouTube video captures a pair of kayakers's whale of a tale near Puerto Madryn in Argentina, a city famous worldwide for whale watching.

These kayakers spotted some of the majestic marine mammals from afar, and as they get closer, the unexpected happens.

Here's a cat that really digs his reflection, but it's not what you think.
This feline is so fond of the face looking at him in the mirror that he's prompted to dig like the dickens. He furiously swipes those paws on his reflection (warning: if nails on a chalkboard are your Kryptonite, walk away now!) like a masseur who has unexpectedly found an overabundance of knots.
We'd be impressed if our cat tossed the litter in his litter box with half as much gusto as this tabby. Get this kitty a playmate – he's just so paw-some.
Got a fat cat? This Kickstarter has an interesting answer to fighting pussycat pudge: hamster wheels!
It has been nine years since the synth-loving rock band sElf has released a new album, but they certainly know how to make up for lost time.
The plot thickens ... and slithers.
We're used to celebrities dropping by our offices – but when a fox and an alligator paid us a visit recently, we all went a little wild!
The visit was courtesy of Martin and Chris Kratt, the brothers who star in PBS's Wild Kratts, an animated children's series about animals who live in places like jungles and swamplands.
