Betty White is quite the hot commodity, but when it comes to her Valentine's Day, the Hot in Cleveland star plans to keep things casual with her favorite live-in mate.

Like any dogged journalist, we go where the story is.
And today, that's the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York City, where over 2,000 canines are competing for one very important title: Best in Show.
But before any of these dogs can claim victory, they need to look their best. Preparation is key and requires many hours – not to mention hairbrushes, combs and products. We trekked to the hub of this year's canine chaos, Piers 92/94, to give you a glimpse of the fur flying. The mane event airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. on USA Network.

"It is such a shame to think that this sweet-natured lad may not find the loving home he deserves," Sandra Lawton, manager of the Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, tells the Daily Mail. "We take in hundreds of dogs of all shapes and sizes but I have never seen anything quite like Snuffles."

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Bear, a wire-haired German shepherd whose life was turned upside down when his elderly owner passed away last year.
When the 8-year-old pooch first arrived at Oreo's Animal Rescue in Dickinson, N.D., seven months ago, he was frightened. The quiet life he once knew was suddenly gone, replaced by the noisy interruptions of other dogs and cats.
