Recent University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign graduate Bridget Evans marked the milestone with a very special classmate by her side: her service dog, aptly named Hero.

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. Say hello to Oreo, Sunshine and Stripes – three adorable 8-week-old kittens who love causing trouble.
It's kitten season, so sweet faces like these are a dime a dozen at shelters across the country. Oreo, a black-and-white male, Sunshine, an orange female, and Stripes, a tabby male, recently came in as strays to the SPCA of Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., and have been causing quite the fuzz – er, fuss – ever since.

But while she described her pooches as "sweet," not everything is perfect at Casa Conrad since the arrival of Fitz, whom the former MTV star dogshamed in November for chewing on one of her shoes.
We've committed a great deal of time and energy to envying Blake Lively. Those legs. That wardrobe. Her man.
Yes, she's the girl who won Ryan Reynolds's heart, getting the best of our jealous hearts and marrying him last September.

This hamster is just a furry version of that kid who never gave you any of his fruit snacks in the cafeteria.
Well, someone's ready for swimsuit season!
Months after taking on a Biggest Loser-style fitness challenge in September, Obie the dachshund is showing off his weight loss one step at a time. Literally.
The pooch, who weighed in at 77 lbs. at his heaviest, flaunted his 40 lbs.-slimmer physique during a Mother's Day hike documented on his Facebook page by his foster mom-turned-owner, Nora Vanatta.
