We all could really (wheel-y!) learn a thing or two from this pig.
Despite being born with malformed hind legs, 6-month-old Chris P. Bacon just rolls with it in a pseudo-wheelchair crafted by his owner, Dr. Len Lucero. The pig was brought to the vet, who resides in Sumterville, Fla., in December after his mother had rejected him and withheld milk due to his deformity. But, "he was full of life," Lucero told The Gainesville Sun. "He had a good heart rate and the attitude of a normal pig."
Since being taken in, Chris has also become a viral sensation thanks to YouTube videos posted by Lucero of the piggy in his wheelchair. But the budding star's latest public appearance on Monday at the University of Florida came on the heels of some more serious news: Chris underwent an operation for a hernia.

Even on the arm of beau George Clooney, Stacy Keibler manages to steal the spotlight (with her smile alone!).
But leave it to a dog to upstage the leggy blonde.
"I got #photobombed by a belly-flopping dog!" she wrote on Instagram, sharing a shot of the four-legged offender she met at the weekend's GoPro Mountain Games, a Colorado sporting event.

Days after announcing on Twitter that her dog went missing, Brandi Glanville hasn't stopped looking – but she's also found another furry friend in the process.
"We have a new family member until Chica comes back to us," she Tweeted Sunday. "His name is Chico."
But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is still asking for help bringing home her brown Chihuahua-mix (pictured), who disappeared in the Los Angeles area when her house was broken into, she Tweeted.

Booking your summer vacation? Boy, have we got the perfect travel companion for you.
Say hello to Biddy, an inquisitive little hedgehog trying to satisfy his wanderlust in the Pacific Northwest – and sharing his adventures on his Instagram account.
The fun began in April, when Biddy visited Oregon's Arcadia Beach. "Welcome to my own Instagram page! Follow for many more amazing #hedgehog photos!!" he wrote. And true to his word, he's shared photos of grand trips, like a May trek to Washington's Snoqualmie Falls and later, Seattle's Space Needle.

It takes a pretty big star to steal the spotlight from Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift – and that's exactly what's happening at the 2013 Country Music Association Festival.
Levi, a Budweiser Clydesdale like the one seen in the company's tearjerker Super Bowl ad, stopped by the Nashville, Tenn., event on Tuesday to pick up his credentials. And boy, did he charm the crowd.
While approaching the check-in table, Levi was the apple of every cameraman's eye, especially after donning his very own all-access pass. The handsome horse even scored some V.I.P. treatment later in the afternoon, meeting CMA Chief Executive Officer Steve Moore and Country Music Hall of Fame member Brenda Lee. Hopefully this appearance didn't leave anyone in tears.

We'd like to propose a toast to this macaque.
Feeling extra busy? Overwhelmed? Just plain hot? We're clinking glasses with this spirited primate, who prefers to take his worries one sip at a time.
It's always happy hour for this critter in West Sumatra, Indonesia, where it resides at a local tourist attraction. The macaque is known to snatch soft drink bottles from visitors.

Picture it: You, on the open road, with the wind in your hair, riding your hog as fast as it will go. Nothing could be better, right? Wrong! How about adding Fido to the mix?
Whatever your next trip may be, this dog is ready to serve as your furry copilot. He's got an easy-going demeanor (check out that smile!) and even brings his own motorcycle helmet and eye-gear to the table. Not to mention, if you should run into trouble on your way, who better to have on hand than man's best friend?
While we're not sure the effect a canine companion would have on bathroom breaks and food stops, you have to admit: a trip with this fellow would be un-fur-gettable.

Thanks to the efforts of a 13-year-old Boy Scout, what once was lost is now found in Moore, Okla.
Justin Hulme Rangel, who accompanied his Boy Scout troop from Texas to the site ravaged by a tornado on May 20, proved to be a savior for a couple whose cat Egor was presumed dead.
Rangel was searching through the remains of Geoff and Jo Humann's home on May 26 when he came upon a litter box, and correctly guessed Egor may have hidden in it.

We know you're busy. We're not trying to keep you from your work or your kids or your other Internet obligations.
But when you have a few minutes – we recommend at least five, depending on your cute tolerance – you'll want to meet Theo, the latest canine Instagram star that is one adorable post away from becoming our homepage.
Lil_Theezy, as he's known on the photo-sharing site, has secured a fan base of more than 1,400 followers (and counting!) since he was born on March 8. And that's no surprise: Who wouldn't want to see this dog sleep and read – and, generally, just sit around looking cute?
