When people first laid eyes on Dori the dog, they thought she was dead.

Personally, we'd go with his version of "My December," but there's no accounting for taste.
When it comes to the competitive world of local news, King is the king of Miami.
The friendly 1-year-old pit bull mix interrupted meteorologist Ryan Phillips's post-Thanksgiving weather report and, in our opinion, he rained (get it?) supreme over all the other networks.
The adorable dog – who was on set for a segment about adoptable pets – made himself at home by hopping right on top of Phillips's weather desk and energetically trying to lick the weatherman's face.

Quite simply, this video of a six-year-old girl getting her long-awaited birthday present – a kitten – has shattered us.
It started with an impossible poodle.
Cortney Wisbauer was fresh out of William Paterson University with a degree in Art Education but no immediate teaching job when two girls she babysits begged her last December to help them with something they saw online: a toy poodle fashioned out of rubber bands woven over a pegged loom.
