Anderson Pooper is here to once again prove the inner strength and determination of dogs everywhere.

This seven-year old dachshund is paralyzed and uses a custom cart to get around, but that didn’t stop the canine from enterining the Star 101.5 Wiener Dog Race at Emerald Downs in Seattle.

The competition marked Pooper’s first foray into racing, but let’s hope it isn’t his last.

Watch the inspiring pup sprint down the muddy coarse in the following video:

Earlier this month, we posted GIFs of dogs playing fetch in their wheelchairs, while also introducing the world to Turbo, a two-legged puppy who gets around on a cart made of toy.

As has sadly been documented over the past few weeks, dogs often have a hard time letting go.

Remember this case of a pet who refused to leave the side of his owner's corpse, despite the 100-degree temperature in Oklahoma City? Terribly sad stuff.

Below, we chronicle a similarly sad story, though it's one with a happier ending:

Among the many animal rescues featured recently on THG, one poodle lived for over a year under the shed of his dead owner's home. The neighbors provided him with food and water, but he refused to leave until workers from Hope for Paws arrived.

Watch them bring this canine back to life and be moved to tears by the transformation of this dog and many other four-legged friends now:

Some dogs refuse to go to sleep, melting our hearts in the adorable process.

Other dogs, however, get angry when you interrupt their sleep, especially when it's really early in the morning. Isn't that right, Great Dane puppy?

The following canine can totally relate to the latter situation, as his owner tries to get him moving... only to be met by some back talk and a pet who simply will not budge.

You tell her, Copper! What's the rush anyway?!?

There is one way to get this dog, and most dogs, out of bed, however.

WARNING: You may wish to view the following video with ear plugs in.

WARNING #2: You may not stop smiling for hours after doing so.

The footage below depicts a schnauzer’s reaction to seeing a family member return after a two-year absence.

At first, the dog jumps for joy and emits a piercing shriek that leaves his owner confused and laughing. The canine then topples over and briefly passes out from excitement.

SERIOUSLY!

It's okay to watch and enjoy because the owner says the dog was later taken to the vet and everything checked out fine.

For more excitingly adorable pet action, check out this video of a dog crying in the lap of its soldier best friend.

As previously documented, dogs can have plenty of fun in wheelchairs.

And they can also inspire.

In the following photo gallery, we’re introduced to Turbo, a chihuahua puppy born with two legs as the result of a genetic defect.

But does this mean he’s destined to live a short, unfufilled life? Heck no, not with the the staff at the Downtown Veterinarian in Indianapolis having a say.

Using a toy helicopter and a toy welding kit, the doctors there have made Turbo an unusually awesome temporary solution before he’s old enough to be fitted with a cart.

"We just wanted him to be able to get used to the feeling of a cart,” says the facility’s manager, Amy Birk. “It allows him to get up and use his legs a few minutes a day in addition to his physical therapy. Using toys just seemed logical because he is so small and it had to be very light.”

Check out Turbo and his amazing wheelchair now... and prepare to breakout a few tissues!

Who knew that Nicki Minaj resembled He-Man?

That's just one of 9 celebrity look-alikes that we did NOT see coming.

Another would be Alec Baldwin and Former President Millard Fillmore. Who knew?!?

But stars aren't the only ones who share some eerie similarities with a few unexpected dopplegangers. Take the following owners and their pets, for instance.

From facial expressions to needs for a haircut, these men and women have evolved to look a lot like their dogs. Or vice versa. 

Either way, enjoy the following photo montage and take special hilarious note of example number-six:

We already know that dogs can play soccer. Surprisingly well, in fact.

But did you also know that canines can play billiards? Likely better than a majority of the population?

The following video serves as (quasi) proof of this statement, as an adorable pet gets up on two legs and shows unexpected skills in the area of throwing balls into holes.

He's even better at it than James Franco... if you know what we mean!

Check out the funny footage now:

What else are dogs good at?
