On Friday, Ben, Melody and their two sons – with arms outstretched and tears in their eyes – greeted the beloved pet they were told passed away years ago.
In 2011, Ben and Melody had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave their dog Zeus in North Carolina. Ben, a chief warrant officer in the military, had been transferred from Fort Bragg to South Korea, and the family was unable to bring their beloved pet to the new home.

The Brown County Sheriff's Department of Wisconsin is mourning the loss of one of its K-9 dogs, who died in a hot patrol car Wednesday while on duty at the PGA Championship in Sheboygan.
According to a Facebook post from the sheriff's office, 3-year-old Wix, who is trained in tracking and explosive detection, was working the event with his human partner Deputy Austin Lemberger.

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 Blue, a pug mix currently being cared for by San Francisco's Animal Care & Control.
Despite his attempts to emulate Grumpy Cat, Blue the dog is a very happy, friendly little pooch. He's described as "clownish" by staff at the shelter, who've deemed him a favorite.

Diesel the English bulldog is so enamored with his new box, he is literally blinded by this infatuation. Instead of embracing his cardboard toy kitty-style – i.e., pompously sitting in it like a throne – this pooch is all about showing off his favorite thing.
