Can you feel it? The sweet static electricity of freedom?

Yeah, it may be Monday, and yeah, your employer probably isn't giving you Veteran's Day off, but this is your weekly reminder that things could be worse. Specifically, you could have spent 60% of your natural lifespan trapped in a wire cage, forced to give birth endlessly for a puppy mill. That's the backstory of Delilah here, who fortunately has been rescued by the National Mill Dog Rescue organization, and can now experience the wonder of fluff for the first time.

It's not even an amazing bed. It's a pretty standard dog bed. Think about how excited you are to get into your bed after being away for a week, though. Now imagine you've never been in a bed, period. Pretty exciting stuff. If that's the kind of thing you'd like other dogs to experience, consider donating to National Mill Dog Rescue.

Or, if almost unbearably cute, feel-good animal videos are your thing, check out this tomcat who took it upon himself to act as a guide for his blind dog friend.
