Dying Dog Lives Just Long Enough to Walk Down the Aisle at His Human's Wedding

"Sweet Charlie is this bride's beloved dog. He has a brain tumor and is on his last few days on this planet. He used up all of his energy before the wedding and didn't have the strength to make it back up the aisle - so the maid of honor scooped him up and carried him. She's 5'3". He's 80 pounds. There isn't enough mascara in the world for these moments." -JenDz

From reddit user abernha3: "Little Andrew was my junior. He was 15 and a half and loved everyone, but just got old and sick over the last year. He purred everyday of his life and when he lost that, I knew it was time. Always sad to lose a friend." :(

A Photographer From Beirut Captured a Day in the Life of a Stray Cat

What do stray cats do all day? They search for food, they look after their kittens, and they take naps whenever possible. This sad photo diary is a good reminder to always spay/neuter pets! You can see a few more pictures from this photographer over on Instagram.

With a heavy, saddened heart you might remember Diesel: the police dog who heroically sacrificed life and limb in the raid that amounted to the apprehension of seven terrorists suspected as responsible for the horrific Paris attacks.

The seven-year-old Diesel took heavy fire, and went down after taking several shots from a female suicide bomber, after scouting the apartment to ensure the quarters was secured.

The world hasn't forgotten Diesel's bravery. She's set to be posthumously awarded by the British veterinary charity, the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals; and also to receive the Dickin Medal. This medal's the animal equivalent to the Victoria Cross, which is Britain's 'highest military awarded for valor in the face of the enemy.'

We hope Diesel's resting in peace up above with an endless procession of doggy treats amidst unparalleled belly rubs in between highly enjoyable bouts of fetch. She was a hero, and she won't be forgotten.
