If you’re looking for the perfect engagement ring to pop the question to the dog lover in your life, we’ve sniffed it out for you.
The Washington, D.C., area’s Mervis Diamond Importers has a custom-made bridal set in the shape of a dog paw.
The engagement ring itself is an upside-down heart-shaped diamond, and the set comes with a wedding ring that fits over the heart with four oval shaped diamonds. The result looks just like your furry friend’s foot.
The piece was first created several years ago, and “we have people asking us to remake it all the time,” said Hailey Robbins of Mervis.
After a 13-month pregnancy, 13-year-old Brooke gave birth to a foal on the Serengeti Plain at Busch Garden’s Tampa. Just an hour after it was born on Aug. 5, Brooke’s fifth baby was standing to nurse.
This is the first offspring for the foal’s dad, Two Step.
The Grevy’s zebra is the only species of zebra that are listed as endangered. Their population has declined by more than 50 percent in less than two decades.
Now, the Late Night host is bursting with excitement about his 3-week-old baby girl, Winnie Rose.
Fallon recently tweeted this photo of Gary lying sadly beside what looks like a baby basket with the caption: “I’ll always love you Gary." It left some people wondering if Gary was feeling depressed about the attention her new sister was getting, reported People Pets.
But Dad quickly cleared up any confusion by sharing a photo of Gary contently floating in the pool. “Sorry for any confusion,” he wrote. “My dog is happy and healthy and just taking care of her little sister.”
Apparently there’s plenty of love to go around for the two little girls in this family!

For this surfer dude mouse, skateboarding came naturally.
Over the last 10 years, Shane Willmott has gained fame by teaching his pet mice to surf.
But the little rodents didn’t have a wintertime hobby, so Willmott adapted their talents to skateboarding.
"They love it," he said. "Mice are built to surf and skate because their center of gravity is so low. When they do fall off, they want to get straight back on board."
Willmott even constructed a mini skateboard park in his backyard, where the mice perform. Gnarly, dude.
The Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa has more big news from its elephant herd.
On July 29, a calf was born to first-time mom Matjeka, who’s 21 years old. This is the zoo’s second newborn calf in just seven months. Both babies come from an 11-member herd that was rescued from Swaziland, Africa, a decade ago.
Dad Sdudla also sired Mpumi, the calf who arrived in December.
