This Saint Bernard is in big trouble. Huge.
From the moment Bella the ginormous pooch set eyes on this adorable pint-sized kitten, it was love – the kind that renders you useless, tongue-tied, and prohibits muscle movement.
Sadly, this love doesn't appear to be mutual. The tabby gives Bella a sniff but is distracted by another dog, the gorgeous sunny day, and Bella's large paws (which look like they require a paw-ticure, stat!)
When the St. Bernard's canine friend steps in to tell her the disinterested kitty's not worth it, she shrugs him off. We know what the big lug is thinking: "If Belle and the Beast can make it, so can we."
Surfers in general are not a tidy group of people, but there's only one who lives in a literal pigsty: Kama the surfing pig, who has quickly become the Internet's favorite surfing quadruped.
Kama met his current owner, Kai Holt, when the latter was on vacation. The piglet was living by himself on the beach when he wandered into Holt's cabana and soon found himself adopted. Only a little while later, he fell in Holt's pool and surprised his owner with a tiny doggie paddle – or rather, piggy paddle.
Amazed by Kama's love of aquatics, Holt started taking his pet along on his surfing trips; before he knew it, the little pig was hopping on the surfboard too. In February, the story of the surfing pig attracted a number of local news outlets, which then spread Kama's story to the mainland. The Internet had a new talented animal to celebrate!
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet three: Darla, Gemini and Libra, a unique trio that needs to be adopted together.
Darla, a 2-year-old miniature Pinscher/Dachshund mix, came to the Humane Society Silicon Valley of Milpitas, California, with a common problem: She was terrified. Darla was previously surrendered to a crowded city shelter after living in her owner's backyard where she rarely interacted with people.
Cairo isn't just a place in Egypt.
It's the name of Macklemore's cat – and by the looks of things, the singer adores his pretty kitty just as much as the ancient Egyptians loved their feline friends.
The female tabby has her own Instagram page, which is filled with photos of her doing the most paw-dorable things, like sleeping, cuddling with dad, more sleeping and stealing dad's bling (clearly, she has expensive taste).
Woody waited, and then waited some more. He waited so long an entire year passed.
Sadly, the poodle's owner had died, and his house was sold by family, who left Woody behind to fend for himself.
Every dog must have his day. For one black Lab, that day turned out to be his last.
When the Roberts family found out they'd have to put their dog Duke down, they decided to make his final day the best one yet, complete with burgers, a trip to the park and more snuggles than any dog could ask for.
The Robertses had adopted Duke three years ago, knowing he had terminal cancer. When the time came to say goodbye for good, they asked their family friend Robyn Arouty, a photographer who specializes in animal portraits, to create an unforgettable experience for Duke's last day.
Brian Russell Kirchoff loved cats.
So the San Rafael, California, real estate attorney did something purr-fectly nice when drawing up his will: he set aside some $800,000 for cats in need at the Marin Humane Society of Novato, California.
