Anne Hathaway's New Puppy Is a 'Little Gentleman,' Says Rescue

Originally posted 06/18/2014 10:15AM

Adopting a pet is a big decision – one Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, didn't take lightly.

"They were looking for a companion for [their chocolate Lab] Esmeralda," says Teri Austin, president of The Amanda Foundation, the Beverly Hills rescue where the couple adopted a terrier mix last week. "Adam came in first. Then when Anne was in town the following week, they spent a long time with one litter. We always like people to sleep on it. They wanted to do that, too."

Eli Manning's Dog Chester Has a Summer Job: Lifeguard

Originally posted 06/10/2014 01:00PM

Just like his quarterback dad, Eli Manning's dog, Chester, has to be quick on his feet.

"He has two babies running around, and so, finally, the oldest has stopped grabbing the tail, but he's got a new 1-year-old," the New York Giants quarterback says of his daughters, Ava, 3, and Lucy, who turns one on June 17. "But he's gotten used to that and understands – he's been sweet and doing great."

Though an ankle injury sidelined the athlete last season, he was given the all-clear to hit the green at New York's Mount Kisco Country Club on Monday for the 37th Annual Guiding Eyes for the Blind Golf Classic, where he putted with a blindfold over his eyes to see exactly what it's like to play with a visual impairment (watch him swing in the video below).

The 33-year-old football player – and dog lover! – also met pups who serve as the eyes for so many people, like 20-month-old Jansen (left), a yellow Lab and guide dog-in-training.

They'll never be able to replace their son Christopher, but Sandra and Salvador Diaz are finding comfort in the thought of having the fallen soldier's best friend by their side for many years to come.

Staff Sgt. Christopher Diaz died on Sept. 28, 2011, while serving in Afghanistan. Diaz was considered one of the most experienced military police dog handlers in the Marine Corps, according to a report from an ABC affiliate. So, it's bittersweet that the family was able to adopt the 6-year-old military working dog, named Dino, whom their son bonded so closely with.

The Daily Treat: 7th Grader's Service Dog Gets Picture in School Yearbook

Originally posted 06/06/2014 03:00PM

There's one paw-some student from a middle school in San Antonio, Texas's Northside Independent School District who won't be signing any yearbooks this year.

His name is Taxi. He's the adorable service dog of seventh grader Rachel Benke, and he's landed himself a spot in this year's yearbook.

So beloved is the pup by Benke (who has had epileptic seizures since birth), faculty, and students that his picture was placed right next to hers, just like another student. It's quite the honor for the Lab/golden retriever mix, who Benke's mother, Teresa Benke, describes as a "guide dog dropout" because he didn't succeed in guide dog training.

The Daily Treat: AnnaSophia Robb's 'New Man' Could Be Royalty

Originally posted 05/30/2014 02:00PM

There's something very highbrow about the new man in AnnaSophia Robb's life: he has a royally paw-some name!

The actress has welcomed an adorable new puppy and named him Sir Fergusson, a title commonly given only at knighthood by the Queen of England.

"Meet my new man ... Sir Fergusson. I'm in love!" she shared with an Instagram video (below) of the tiny pooch barking at her feet. When she Tweeted a WhoSay portrait of the pooch, she also created a hashtag, #sirferg, in his honor. (In our opinion, she should take a cue from the famous royal folk across the pond and nickname her caramel-colored little prince Fergie.)
