This afternoon the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship is hanging out with Chowder the pot-bellied pig and her five rescued canine friends, Rika, Slick, Nya, James, Bashe. Together they form Piggypoo_and_crew and they live in Souther California with their doting human, Shelby Madere.

In an interview with the Instagram blog, Madere openly expressed her devotion to every one of the animals.

“My Wonderful Treasures Devotion and Commitment. …When I look at my crew, I see the reflection of who I am in them. Their happiness, their safety, their health, their whole lives rely on me and I will never ever let them down.”

Follow Chowder and her pupper pals on Instagram to keep up with their latest heartwarming adventures.

Merry Pawsmas! Sitting at the kids’ table is usually a lot more fun, but when the kids’ table is full of canine friends, it’s not just fun, it’s awesome! This year for Christmas dinner Versailles, KY-based couple Kelly and Zach Furr decided to make their holiday meal even more festive and entertaining by setting up a kids’ table for their dog and his friends.

Each pupper was dressed in a Christmas sweater and served with a big rawhide bone on their plate. Our favorite detail from this fantastic photo is the teeny-tiny chihuahua who’s so small he/she is sitting on a booster seat. We hope each of these adorable and impressively well behaved doggos found a World’s Best Dog Trophy in their Christmas stockings.

Kate’s Irish charm: An emerald Duchess presents St Patrick’s Day shamrocks to guardsmen (and she’s a knockout for one soldier)

The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant today as she presented soldiers with shamrocks to mark St Patrick’s Day. Kate wore an elegant green dress coat with a chocolate brown hat and an Irish Guards brooch that belonged to the Queen Mother as she attended the traditional parade in Aldershot.

But the excitement was all too much for one young soldier, who fainted to the ground in his stiff red uniform.

The Duchess watched the ceremonial military parade with a dazzling smile before bestowing lucky three-leafed clovers on 40 officers – and even their Irish Wolfhound mascot.

She glowed in her Emilia Wickstead dress and Lock & Co hat on her first solo military engagement, at the start of what will be a long-standing relationship with the Irish Guards.
