Recently, there seems to be more and more articles in the paper about pets being left "out in the cold" or in a dumpster because no one wants to unexpected litter of kittens/pups or the mother of the said litter because maybe they can't afford the pet anymore or some other absurd reason.  It's sad to me because I've always looked at my pets as family.  I would starve before I'd give them up due to money.  If I could, I'd probably adopt every dog that comes across pet connection if I had enough comfortable space for that animal to live their life.  Unfortunately, I don't.

I'm sure anyone who has had the joy of owning a dog, cat, horse, etc. knows what it's like to come home after a rough day at work or a crappy day in general and there's this fuzzy little guy (or gal) waiting with a wagging tail or a friendly nudge to say, "I'm happy to see you even if you're not happy at all," and it INSTANTLY changes your mood.

This video I stumbled upon this morning, immediately woke me up and put me in a good mood.  Not only did I smile and laugh, but I suddenly had the urge to buy a Pomeranian puppy -- just kidding!  I've often found myself taking pictures of my dogs because they crack me up, but the amount of video footage of this dog, Boo, is so darn cute!  Don't mistake him for a bear.  He just has a really, really cute haircut.

Check it out, especially if you love your pet!
