It took a horrific travel experience to open Matthew Fiorillo's eyes to the power of pets. He was at an airport, and his flight was delayed for five excruciating hours.
"Tempers were flaring, and this woman walked by with a Maltese, and I just watched this wave of calm come over everybody," he tells PEOPLE. "I said, 'Wow, I have to implement this at the funeral home.' "
After two months, Lulu the goldendoodle is definitely part of the team at both of Fiorillo's Ballard-Durand funeral homes in White Plains and Elmford, New York. The dog is also a part of his family, too – when she's not working, she's his dog.

Things are looking up for Tiger Woods – and his border collie, Taz.
After missing the cut at the U.S. Open last week, the golfer announced on Twitter Monday that his pup is undergoing a procedure to help him get around better.
"A rough year is about to get better," Woods wrote alongside a picture of the cute black and white pooch looking into the camera. "Taking my boy of 9 years to get double ACL reconstruction on both hind legs."

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 Anderson, a sweet and silly American pit bull terrier currently being cared for by Wags and Walks in Los Angeles, California.
Although he's smaller than your average pit bull at 48-lbs., Anderson has a big personality to make up for it.
"What I love about Anderson is that he is happy wherever he is – he's happy to join you on a 5-mile hike or snuggle in bed all day with you on a lazy Sunday!" says spokeswoman Kayla Morrow. "He is only 1-year-old and has already had so much training under his belt, crate trained, house trained and knows his commands."

A Red Springs, North Carolina, man accused of setting a puppy on fire had his bail raised from $40,000 to $250,000 on Tuesday after he argued with the judge presiding over the case.
James Franklin Quick, 23, is being charged with severely burning a 7-month-old miniature terrier named Cocoa and is being charged with felony animal cruelty. WTVD News reports that Quick chose to defend himself in court on Tuesday after being warned by the judge not to do so.
According to WRAL News, Fayetteville resident Dominique Clark had let the dog into the backyard on Sunday night and then heard the dog scratching to be let back in. When she opened the door, the dog was on fire, and she had to smother the flames with her clothes.
