It started with a woman taking this adorable obese doggo into her home, wanting to give her a chance and take care of her, help her lose weight and get healthier. And after a year and a half as well as one of the most successful pet weight loss journeys we've ever seen, the story ended with the same amazing woman being won over and adopting the pup.

Never have you seen a dog happier to do the most basic dog things - since because of her weight, she couldn't even scratch her own ear before. She's now the happiest doggo, and we can't help but be happy watching her jump around in the new forever home

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Rescues And Glow Ups

Cats, cats, cats. We can look at photos of cats all day long! Some photos are simply hilarious, so funny that you can see the picture quickly becoming a viral meme template. Some cat images are breathtaking. Some cat images will make your heart burst due to cuteness alone. And some cat images tell a story, a story of love, a story of survival, a story of kindness, or a story of mourning and loss. 

Each cat photo is utterly precious to us and we're here to honor them all and share their story! Speaking of sharing stories, if you have a pet and wish to share their story, be sure to check out our newest Facebook group, 'ICanHas Storytime,' a community of animal lovers sharing their stories. 

We would also like to take a moment and think of those who have recently crossed the rainbow bridge. To those who have recently lost a pet, our hearts are with you. They may be gone but never forgotten.

Cats, cats, and more cats. We adore our cats, from the first moment we see them to the moment they leave us. They are a part of us, our families, our lives. 

We're there for their weird antics, late-night zoomies, early morning cuddles, all their vet trips, and sadly, for the moment they cross the rainbow bridge. We celebrate the life of humans and cats. Once a week, we honor all the cats, in this cat medley of different emotions. Some of these cat moments beautiful are silly, some are 'aww' invoking moments, and some are heartbreaking moments. There's a whole lot to take in but they're all cats and they are all beautiful. 

For those who have recently lost a loved one, our hearts are with you. They may be gone but never forgotten.

Forty One Pound Chonk Cat Is Now Half As Chonky And Gets The Zoomies

Only last year, this stunning chonker weighed a whopping 41 pounds! Today, after getting adopted and living happily in his forever home, Barsik has dropped 22 pounds and is officially getting the zoomies. Barsik was once an internet sensation for being possibly the largest chonkiest cat in the world, but he's now just as sensational for having lost the weight, and hearing that the little guy is softer, cuddlier and much, much zoomier is wonder news!

Abandoned Chihuahua Was Obese, Until New Owner Came Around

It's always sad when an animal is abandoned by someone they trusted. It's even sadder when animals are abandoned, when the owner could have easily done something.

Brooke Burton rescued Dennis, a 6-year-old miniature dachshund and 56-pounds, from a relative who had fed the dog a diet of burgers, pizza, ramen noodles and gave Dennis little attention, leaving him scared, and sad.

After a first month of timidness and reluctance, Dennis seemed to realize the Burton was trying to help him and her strict dry dog food diet and multiple walks a day was for his benefit. His weight started dropping and his skin starting to fold and hung off him.

Since being adopted in 2013, Dennis has had to have three surgeries to remove excess skin folds. Dr. Kathleen Ham, an assistant professor in the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, said "It was really remarkable that he was otherwise healthy," she said. "We were surprised that he didn't have any detrimental effects from the excessive weight."

These days, the fit and healthy Dennis weighs 12 pounds, after losing a total of 44, including 2 pounds of excess skin. He loves to chase squirrels and birds, playing fetch and most of all belly rubs from his owner, Brooke Burton.
