"I cannot believe this," Rizzi posted on his Facebook page Thursday.

In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we'll be introducing you to an adult furball looking for a place to live out its golden years throughout November. Today, we'd like you to meet Fraggle, a cocker spaniel/poodle mix who resembles a grumpy old man – and until recently, had a lot to be grumpy about.
This 8-year-old pooch was found wandering the streets of the Bronx nearly a year ago. According to Dr. Julie Horton, medical director at the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan, Fraggle was a "medical mess" upon his arrival. He suffered from chronic ear infections that had been unattended for so long they were no longer treatable. As a result, Fraggle have to have both ear canals removed to relieve his pain, leaving him almost completely deaf. An eye condition also prevents him from producing enough tears, so he requires regular medication.

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.

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.

Eric Stonestreet's dog Coleman knows a thing or two about playing the field – and we're not just referring to his appreciation for the game of football.
"Coleman is a total ladies' man," the Modern Family star tells PEOPLE. "He's a ladies' man in that he doesn't pursue. He just sits and waits for them to come to him."
That puts the Jack Russell Terrier/beagle mix, whom Stonestreet rescued in 2000, in the same category as bachelors like George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Sure, Kanye West rented out a stadium to propose to Kim Kardashian. Prince William asked Kate to be his wife while they were on a 10-day African safari. And then there's that guy from Utah who organized a flash mob inside a Home Depot to pop the question to his boyfriend.
But there are exactly 16 reasons why the following marriage proposal is even better than any of the above romantic gestures.
A man from London named Ed wanted to propose to his longtime love, Alex, in New York City's Central Park with the help of a few pugs. He contacted the New York City Pug Meetup Group, who proved that yes, ladies and gents, dreams really do come true.

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:

We admire parents like Jennifer Garner and Angelina Jolie who put their families before their careers.
But if we had to make a nomination for mom of the year, it would have to go to this dog.
Quassia vom Wandsbarg the Irish setter gave birth to 17 puppies earlier this month in Lutzhorn, Germany; of the 17 newborns, 15 survived. It was the 4-year-old dog's very first litter, too.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, we'd like you to meet Diesel, an American pit bull who is a big baby at heart.
The 10-month-old dog could have used some comfort when he was a smaller puppy. He came to the North Shore Animal League America of Port Washington, N.Y., in January from Huntsville, Ala. The charming pup was adopted right away, but his owners returned him after only a couple of months due to his growing size and a skin condition. The poor pup was suffering from demodectic mange, and as bad luck would have it, got pneumonia on top of it, forcing him to be hospitalized.

We spy with our little eyes ... something particularly adorable.
And we're not just referring to Hilary Duff's Bernese mountain dog Dubois.
In a snapshot she posted Sunday, Duff's son, Luca, 19 months, photobombs this otherwise canine-focused shot of her house (sans the rest of her puppy pack).
"I spy a little luca," she writes on Twitter.
