Late last month, official White House photographer Pete Souza
joined Instagram, where he shares a behind-the-scenes look at life at 1600 Pennsylvania using his iPhone. And there’s already a breakout star from his page: Bo. Souza says he practiced being creative with his iPhone on the lovable 4-year-old
Portuguese Water Dog. “Bo is a great subject because, well, he’s Bo. Everyone loves Bo,” Souza said. His latest photo of the pooch, sitting in the Oval Office with a tennis ball in his mouth, gained 7,700 likes. The first
dog has been making headlines this week for getting a lift to Massachusetts’ Martha’s Vineyard in an MV-22 Osprey to join his family. Fingers crossed for a glimpse of a vacationing Bo! — Read it at
Health officials in Louisville, Ky., went door to door to track down nine children who were exposed to rabies after a bat was confirmed to have the disease. The children had carried the bat in a box and needed to be quickly treated. On its

Then, he bought the puppy from them and took her to the vet. He brought the pup, who he named Stella, home with him, but because the animal loving coach already has so many
dogs, he found another good home for Stella — with a couple who’d lost their former home in the Moore, Okla., tornado in May. — Read it at

July 6 at the Taipei Zoo has been slowly reintroduced to her mom after spending a month apart. The baby bear squealed as she finally was back in Yuan Yuan’s arms on Monday. Temporarily nicknamed “Rice Meatball,” the tiny cub is the result of seven rounds of artificial insemination for mom Yuan Yuan and dad Tuan Tuan, reported the
Huffington Post U.K. The cub, who won’t meet the public for several more months, has spent much of her time in an incubator and is being
hand raised. — Watch it at

cat her company’s CEO. — Read it at
