This man is a quick learner with the concept of a selfie, thanks to his two very photogenic dogs.

    Daughter Teaches Dad How To Selfie, Doesn't Expect Him To Become Internet Sensation
    There's nothing cuter than old folks learning to use technology and giving it their best shot. This just recently happened to a sheep farmer in Walcha, Australia, who was introduced to the ubiquitous selfie by his daughter, and proceeded to have way too much fun with it.

Squish, the crooked-faced puppy with a locking jaw, was set to be euthanized at the shelter to prevent further suffering. Then, a second opinion determined Squish was the victim of intentional blunt force trauma. Veterinarians felt Squish would need extensive jaw surgeries and ongoing treatment to survive. One of those surgeries was performed by our Dr. Fred Willaims Jr. of BluePearl - San Antonio. Squish’s life, once scheduled to end due to his disability, is full now.

    Dog With Crooked Mouth Was Supposed To Be Euthanized - Until His Vet Stepped In
    One look at Squish's face explains the reason behind his name - but when he was picked up as a stray by animal control in April 2016 and brought to Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter, he was named Zar.

We already knew that dogs can be heroes. It's nice to know they watch out for heroes, too. Thanks to all the veterans and to these dogs that serve them.

    Founder Shari Duval has seen 'hundreds of miracles' During her time working on a casualty response team for the U.S. Navy, Chief Petty Officer Amanda Damasiewicz handled more than 55 death notifications over the course of almost six years. Dealing with death so frequently began to eat away at her.

Sullivan suddenly began making a coughing sound that had her owners very worried. Turns out, things were not as they seemed. BluePearl's Dr. Jill Sackman told the Dodo this is in line with a phenomena called operant conditioning.

    Dog Pretends To Be Sick So His Dad Will Stay Home From Work
    The next morning, however, as the couple prepared to head off to work, the dog began coughing again. Worried once more, Alex thought it best to stay home that day, too. And sure enough, that was probably the exact response Sullivan had been hoping for.

It's no secret that our pups like to follow us around everywhere. But why do they do it? petMD provides the answers.

    Why Does My Dog Follow Me Everywhere? | petMD
    By Cheryl Lock That second shadow that's constantly beside you isn't a figment of your imagination - it's probably your dog. As anyone with a furry friend will already know, dogs are often inclined to follow their owners everywhere they go and to watch their every move, but there's actually more to this behavior than meets the eye.

When a stranger asks, “Is he friendly?” what this owner hears is, “Is he a nice dog or a mean dog?” or, “Is he a good dog or a bad dog? Your dog can absolutely be a nice AND be uncomfortable meeting new people or dogs. That's why you should consider asking an alternative question.

    Is He Friendly? - Instinct Dog Behavior & Training
    "Is he friendly?" If you own a dog, you've been asked this question. If you own a perfectly social dog who enjoys meeting new dogs and new people, you've probably never given this question a second thought (or, you've felt a little swell of pride as you happily responded, "Yes, very!").

Costume score: 10/10. It’s one thing to wear a costume, and it’s another thing entirely to actually be the costume.

    Woman Dresses Her Dog As A Mop, And It's Probably The Best Pet Costume We've Ever Seen
    If you're tired of the same-old-same-old when it comes to canine Halloween costumes, get ready for something that just screams originality - and cuteness. The town of Covington, Kentucky recently held its annual Mainstrasse Paw-Rade, a big street party that lets dogs dress up and strut their stuff, and a Hungarian puli participant named Keki ended up stealing the show.

Wanting people to focus on dogs based on personality instead of breed, the shelter came up with a fun way to showcase their dogs’ personalities — using Harry Potter.

    Shelter Starts Sorting Dogs Into Hogwarts Houses To Help Them Get Adopted
    So far, the shelter has sorted over 40 dogs into the different Hogwarts houses. The most populated house as of now is Hufflepuff, and while Gryffindor and Slytherin are also well-represented, there haven't been too many Ravenclaws as of yet. Not a lot of studious, hardworking dogs coming into the shelter, apparently.

HIGHLY recommend Blue Pearl! My little guy, Cody has had four surgeries with Dr. Laura Hinton at Blue Pearl. Two ACL surgeries, one plasma cell tumor removal in his mouth and has recently had his anal glands removed. Dr. Hinton always explains the procedure, the risks and rewards as well as all recovery expectations. Not to mention an over the top talented surgeon!!! She came highly recommended by Cody's primary doctor, Dr. Will Grimley of Village Vet. The front desk staff at Blue Pearl is extremely welcoming and always makes us feel at home! Two technicians need to be mentioned...Kaitlin and Dasska (sp?) they are super!!! They both make Cody feel like he's seen a familiar friend...talk to him, hold him like a baby (like me!!) When Cody has had an overnight stay...I can call any hour of the night and always get a friendly voice on the other side that can give me details on how he's doing, when he ate, when he went out to go potty, etc. (even when I call every hour!!!) Since Cody has never been crated until his surgeries here, I was apprehensive on his overnight recovery stays...but the staff actually rock him in a rocker and give him plenty of big hugs and a lot of LOVE!!!!!
