Hidden Camera: Adorably Disobedient Dog Jumps on Bed When You Leave

Originally posted 03/16/2014 01:00PM



When the cat's away, the mice will play. Likewise, when the dog's home alone, he'll jump on the bed while the cat watches.

After forbidding the dog from going on the bed, an owner installed a camera in the room to see what really goes down when no one's keeping tabs on the pets.

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 Harriet, a 7-year-old pooch who has come a long way since arriving at the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford, Conn.

The 45-lb. pup may be the picture of perfection now, but this former stray was freezing cold, flea-infested and missing most of her fur on February 4 when animal control officer Audrey McKay captured her and brought her into the shelter.

The Daily Treat: Growing Up Fisher Cast Adopts Labrador Retriever

Originally posted 03/07/2014 02:45PM

On the NBC sitcom Growing Up Fisher, J.K. Simmons portrays the blind patriarch of a family-of-four whose guide dog is a yellow Labrador named Mel. Off-screen, the cast and crew of the show are making Mel's life a reality for one lucky person.

The show's cast, which includes Jenna Elfman, and crew have adopted an 8 week old yellow Labrador retriever named Guf (an abbreviation for the show), and will sponsor his guide dog training until he can be paired with a visually impaired person, reports Today. The pooch will be cared for by a "puppy raiser" until the age of 18 months, at which time he'll begin training at New York's Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind.
