This year on National Puppy Day, dog owners everywhere shared pictures and stories in celebration of our furry friends and every thing they do for us.

Twitter user @USCocksman was especially grateful for his golden retriever Hank though, without whom he might not be around today.


Loyalty, companionship, and unconditional love — what else could we ask for from our four-legged friends? So it's only right that every March 23rd, on National Puppy Day, we take the time to honor good boys and girls everywhere for being apart of our lives.

Some dogs take the loyalty to an entirely new level however, like this dog who saved his human family from a shooting. Dogs like that seem to be the most deserving of appreciation

Another dog that deserves just as much appreciation is Twitter user @USCocksman's Golden Retriever Hank.



As a puppy, Hank was a bit of a trouble maker with a taste for Vans sneakers.



But a bit of puppy mischief was nothing compared to the night Hank saved his family from a very close call.



When Hank began barking nonstop late one night, his owner eventually realized that something wasn't right. After getting up to see what was wrong, @USCocksman discovered what Hank had been barking about.

The entire yard had caught fire!



The family immediately called 911 and got Hank and themselves outside.




Thanks to Hank and the fire fighters, the house survived mostly undamaged and Hank's family was saved from a dangerous situation that could have had a much more tragic ending.



Twitter was blown away by Hank's story and collectively sent all of their extra pats and belly rubs for the very good boy.






And for his heroic efforts, Twitter users offered to send Hank all the shoes he could ever eat.






Incredibly though, Hank's wasn't the only tale of unbelievable doggy heroism as several shared their stories of how their dogs had managed to save their lives too.






We truly don't deserve dogs, but thankfully, they stick by us anyway. To honor your own very good boy, might we suggest this adorable t-shirt? Or just join me in squealing over the cuteness of these puppies!

Remember way back when the internet wasn't a flaming dumpster fire?

Yeah, us either.

The internet has always been a mess, but it's also always been beautiful.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!
