Fighting like cats and dogs? Not for Ichimi and Ponzu!
Tabby kitten Ichimi and golden retriever Ponzu are proof that we can all just get along. After she was rejected by her mother, Ichimi was rescued by Twitter user Jessiepon, already a pet parent to Ponzu. The animal lover has since been capturing the pair's growing friendship on her Instagram account, which has amassed more than 95,000 followers.
So what's so special about these two? Their cuddliness, for one. Ichimi and Ponzu love dozing off on or near each other.

Tired of seeing cute dogs pop up on your Instagram feed? Yeah, we didn't think so.
Meet Jiff the Pomeranian. You may remember him from this past summer, when his video of amazing tricks went viral. A lot has happened since then – he's even taken his talent to the big screen – so we think it's about time we caught up with Jiff.
Here's our favorites, but if you need more (and you know you do!), follow @jiffpom on Instagram.

Pulling out of the Winter Olympics was devastating for skiing champion Lindsey Vonn – but, thankfully, the slow recovery from her knee injury hasn't been too ruff.
"I get to spend time with my new dog," she told PEOPLE at DirecTV's Super Saturday Concert Event over the weekend. "He's keeping me happy."
The boxer-retriever mix named Leo – whom Vonn adopted from a shelter on Christmas Eve – has made a difficult turn of events so much easier for the athlete, especially since he knows exactly what she's going through.

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, we'd like you to meet Sapphire, a baby blue nose pit bull who was abandoned outside a Los Angeles Petco store when she was just a few weeks old.
Thankfully, the adorable puppy was scooped up quickly by the L.A.-based Tails of the City Animal Rescue. Now 5-months-old, Sapphire's currently being fostered by a volunteer in an apartment with two dachshunds.

There's probably nothing dogs love more than a good game of fetch with their owner – but what if the person throwing the ball is two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning?
Lucky for Chester, the King Charles Cavalier who calls Manning dad, there's no reason to be intimidated about his performance as a receiver.
"He's good at fetch and we do a lot of that," Manning told PEOPLE Wednesday in New York while participating in Purina Pro Plan's MANning vs. DOG Challenge. "He's pretty good. He can find it and he can go get it. He's got good speed and good agility."

Well, this story will warm your heart.
While out dog-walking five pooches on Sunday, an N.Y.C. woman jumped into freezing waters to rescue one of the pooches who had gotten away from her, reports the New York Post.
The woman was walking in Central Park when one of the dogs under her care dove into the Harlem Meer, a small lake. Despite low temperatures and warning signs around the body of water, the woman immediately waded in after her dog, said cops.

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, we'd like you to meet Nomey, a happy-go-lucky guy who lives life to the fullest.
Look up the term "happy tail" in the dictionary and you'll see Nomey. "His tail wags so much that he was smacking it on the sides of his run and causing the tip to bleed," says Roger Keyser of the Eleventh Hour Rescue in Rockaway, N.J., where Nomey has been since mid-December. "It's actually a [common] thing."

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something ... pooch?
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's Sunday wedding has officially gone to the dogs.
Well, at least their groom's cake, which will honor the Bachelor star's two canine pals, a boxer named Lola and a chocolate lab named Ellie, ABC News reports.
While their main wedding cake will be traditional, Lowe's groom's cake, a tradition at many Southern weddings, will be an exact replica of his two best friends, created by Charm City Cakes of Los Angeles.
"Our dogs are so important to us," Lowe, 30, said. "They're the loves of my life."
