LONDON — An internet campaign to help fund a facelift for a Shar-Pei called Hector has passed the halfway mark.
The dog is currently under the care of Halfway Home Dog Rescue in Collingham, UK. Hector was found abandoned and the home took him in to stop him from being put to sleep when no one claimed him.

Good boy, Pablo!
Most dogs accidentally go #1 (or even worse, #2) from time to time in the house – but Pablo just might be the first dog to clean his mess up himself.
When the pup wasn’t able to make it outside to use nature’s bathroom, he was forced to use his human’s bathroom (well, the floor of his human’s bathroom). His human then tweeted a photo of the toilet paper wad Pablo the puppy lovingly created to soak up his pee.
Of course, the dog could also have just messed around with the roll of toilet paper after his bathroom break, but it’s more fun to think of him as being a clean canine.

In the clip above, which was shared on Brand’s Facebook page on Sunday evening, Brand sings the Cheers theme song to his dog, Bear.
From the looks of it, Bear isn’t a big fan of Cheers.

The latest is Kya, a Shiba from Orlando in Florida who is in love with her Santa toy. This year, her dream came true: She got to meet the real thing — and sit on his lap too.
The photo of the encounter was shared by her owner John Montaldo on Twitter Wednesday, and boy, she looks pretty damn happy.
