Ice cream and chocolate sauce, peanut butter and jelly, rest and relaxation – some combos are just meant to be together.
Much like hot guys and adorable dogs.
N.Y.C.-based animal rescue, Louie's Legacy, has brought the two together for its new calendar, appropriately named "Hunks and Hounds."

It's an unthinkable sight: 20 tiny puppies left for dead in the harsh temperatures of Saskatchewan, Canada.
But that is what Greg Zubiak came across on Friday while hunting moose in the woods.
Zubiak told the CBC he found the animals huddled together in the cold weather with no help in sight. The hunter quickly stripped off his sweaters and bundled up the puppies before putting them in his truck and driving to Battleford's Humane Society.

Who needs a rubber ducky? Not Iris Grace Halmshaw, a 5-year-old British girl – and art prodigy – who was diagnosed with autism in 2011. She and her therapy cat, Thula, have become inseparable, with the friendly feline tagging along for painting sessions, bike rides, and, yes, bath time.
"Their connection was evident on the first day that Thula arrived [about a year ago], and they have been best friends ever since," says Iris's mom, Arabella Carter-Johnson. "She joins in with all the activities."

If home is where your heart is, then Cleo the cat definitely belongs with her owner Nancy Cowen.
Several weeks ago, the fluffy feline was separated from Cowen when the elderly woman was moved from her home in Westcott, England, into the Bramley House Residential Home in the same town.
Somehow the cat, who was left in the care of a neighbor, found her way to the nursing home – where she had never been before – presumably in an attempt to find her beloved owner.
Bramley House employee Laura Costello told the Dorking and Leatherhead Advertiser, which first reported the sweet story, "About two weeks after Nancy moved in, this cat just started turning up and sleeping on the benches outside the home. It was very strange."

Animal control officer Wanda Snell knows what she saw: A veterinarian inserted a needle into the black-and-brown mutt and injected a chemical meant to euthanize the dog no one had adopted. The animal moved a bit and was still and quiet by the time she left the shelter for home.
What Snell can't explain is how or why a mixed-breed dog that nobody wanted recovered overnight and has since bounced back fully from what should have been a lethal injection.

The 3-year-old is 22-in. tall and happily roams around owner Maureen O'Sullivan's house and miniature horse farm in Essex, England, according to the U.K.'s Mirror.
"I think he's one in a million, this little horse," said O'Sullivan. "I've never seen anything like him."
