Rescued dogs have found their poster pup!
A once-homeless dog named Rupee is believed to be the first canine to make it to the base camp of Mount Everest at 17,000 feet.
Rescued by Joanne Lefson from a garbage dump in Northern India, Rupee was malnourished, dehydrated and on the verge of death when she found him.
"When I saw him on that dumpsite, he couldn't have had more than an hour to live. He couldn't even walk 10 meters without collapsing," Lefson, an animal activist, said in the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

Tuesday, 11/12/13, marks the first sequential date since Oct. 11, 2012. But of course, it's not the first 11/12/13 in history; Nov. 12, 1913 also featured the same shorthand. So, what stories did the citizens of a hundred years ago enjoy as they opened the last newspapers dated 11/12/13? We took a gander.
In some respects, the world of journalism is unchanged since 1913. International crises and disasters dominated the front page as they do now. In the Midwest, hundreds died in the wake of one of the largest blizzards the Great Lakes have ever seen. Abroad, Chile struggled to rebuild after a magnitude 6.3 earthquake that had killed two hundred people the previous week.

We love living vicariously through Mariah Carey's Instagram, where she gives fans a glamorous glimpse at her fabulous life.
And by fabulous, we mean filled with puppies (a.k.a. happiness!).
So it's no surprise that InStyle readers honored the dog-loving diva and her litter of eight Jack Russell terriers with the magazine's award for Most Stylish Pet on Instagram.

Forget orange. Pink is the new black – among animals, that is.
A photographer recently snapped shots of a pale-hued hippo standing out like a sore thumb among its pack in Zambia, and it had us daydreaming about all the other animals that are naturally blushing beauties – and beasts, like Australia's giant fluorescent slugs! As you'll see, pink isn't always pretty.

We think you should sit down for this one.
Corgis may soon make their way onto the endangered breed list, according to the Britain Kennel Club's breeders's association. There were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain this year, AFP reports. That number needs to be at 300 to stay off the vulnerable breeds list.
Corgis: the unofficial mascot of the Internet, the Queen's favorite kind of pooch, the stuff our dreams are made of. Together, we can avoid a Corgi a-paw-calypse. Just follow these seven steps:
