Yep, it's puppy love!
Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen adopted a beagle-foxhound mix last fall, and he still couldn't be happier.
"I'm madly in love," Cohen told PEOPLE at the ASPCA's 17th Annual Bergh Ball Gala in New York City Thursday night. "My assistant, on the way out tonight, was saying she's never seen me with this look in my eye, and it's true."
There's nothing we love more than a good holiday, and today marks just about the greatest one of all (sorry, Christmas): National Pet Day.
Choosing to stay away from the ongoing dog vs. cat debate, we here at PEOPLE Pets are celebrating by sharing our favorite photos of camaraderie; the rare moments when dogs and cats play nice.
Below, you'll find five of our favorites, and the perfect dose of cuteness to kick off your weekend.
Have you ever called a politician a bonehead? Think the world would be a better place if pets made all major life decisions? Even the ones that have nothing to do with bacon or the mailman? You might want to consider moving to Divide, Colo.
Pa Kettle the bloodhound has been elected mayor of the small mountain town, reports the Associated Press. He beat out 10 other animals competing for the unofficial title in an online race benefiting the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter. Each vote raised $1 for the rescue, and the election also spotlighted groups such as Teller County Search and Rescue (for which Pa Kettle works as a search-and-rescue hound).
Romeo the boxer had never eaten a cheeseburger, gotten a pedicure or traveled in a cop car before.
So when he was diagnosed with inoperable bone cancer, his owner Riina Cooke created a bucket list for him. This way, Romeo could spend his final days living out his hopes and dreams (and, of course, bond with his owners).
"When I found out [about the diagnosis], I was in shock," Cooke, of British Columbia, Canada, told Today. "He watched me cry, and he would get upset when I got upset because he was a very sensitive dog. It took a couple of days to digest, but then I took him to the park, and we started putting together the bucket list."
We've been patiently waiting for a wedding that would top Prince William and Kate's 2011 nuptials. There have been many close calls, and we haven't even seen Kimye tie yet, meaning the best may be yet to come.
But leave it to a pair of dogs to remind the world just what true puppy love is all about.
Meet Pete and Tally. They're newlyweds, who just happen to have furry paws (to have and to hold), wagging tails (for better, for worse) and an enduring love for each other (until death do they part).
Like all great love stories, their fairy tale has unfolded on Instagram, from those nerve-wracking first dates to their wedding day.
We thought Taylor Swift's friendships with Lorde, Karlie Kloss and every other it girl ever were cute.
But no matter how many slumber parties Swift throws – no matter how many cookies they bake, or what colors they paint their fingernails – it's going to be hard to top what happened when a horse met a cat.
Naturally, said horse and cat became best friends. (Watch the cuddly evidence in the video above.)
Police in Massachusetts responding to reports of an intruder in a woman's home quickly quacked the case.
A North Reading woman called police Saturday from her upstairs bedroom to report that she heard loud banging noises downstairs and feared someone had broken into her home.
Officers who responded found no sign of a break-in.
