When they first met by chance at an animal hospital, Tanner the Golden Retriever was blind and suffering from debilitating seizures, and Blair the Labrador mix was a former street dog who was painfully timid around people after sustaining a gunshot wound. But their lives have since changed: Blair became a guide dog to Tanner, whose seizures have all but disappeared, while Tanner helped to calm Blair’s nerves. “It’s the first time I’ve seen anything like this, the special relationship these two dogs have,” said Dr. Mike Jones, director of the Woodland West Animal Hospital in Tulsa, Okla. — Watch it at ABC News
A photojournalist for the student newspaper at the University of Colorado Boulder raced to the scene when he heard that a bear had been spotted outside a cluster of residence halls. The 200-pound bear spent two hours hanging out in a tree before officials decided to tranquilize him, and Andy Duann snapped an amazing shot of the critter in midair, before he fell onto a mat. The bear was later set free — away from the campus. — See the photo at People Pets

The $26 checks from around the world helped the Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center open in a new spot, but they still need help to pay off the balance. — Read it at Fox 6 Milwaukee
