"That was the number one secret - just get out of yesterday, get out of tomorrow and enjoy today."

    How dogs teach us to stop worrying and just be happy
    If you're a constant worrier, you're not alone. 40 million American adults live with anxiety disorders. One of those chronic worriers was Tom Baker, a Tennessean who runs a television production business. He worried so much, felt so hopeless, after a business failure and trouble with the IRS, he says, that it became dangerous.

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.
