Miniature horse Judd and young Tyler Cribbs are best friends, but unlike most people and animals who share a special bond, theirs is rather specific.

Boy and Horse

Judd was born at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association in Grantville, Pa., with a condition that prevents him from supporting his own weight without splints.

The association offers horseback riding as therapy to patients with disabilities. Ironically, in the case of Judd, CARTA saw an opportunity to do the opposite.

"It's our turn to give therapy back," CATRA's Ben Nolt said. "There are horses who have had this in the past and recovered normally. We're sort of a wait and see."

Twogging is the new thing. At least according to a new viral video, in which people attempt to Twerk along with their dogs ... who look straight up confused.

Yes. Not everyone is content emulating Miley Cyrus Twerking at the VMAs or reenacting Rihanna "Pour It Up" video. Some have to get their pets involved.

Apparently #twogging is the act of twerking on or around your four-legged friend (or anyone’s dog, for that matter), as seen in the video compilation above.

We can't decide if this is hilarious, weird or just wrong.

In any case, please don't go twogging on a stranger's pet at the dog park, though that could become a viral video in itself once you get your a$$ whomped.

The more you know.

Have you wiped away the tears yet from this photo of a dog watching over a sleeping baby?

Okay, good. But prepare to turn on the water works below, though for a very different reason.

In one of the simpler, albeit most hilarious, videos to go viral in a long time, a cat is walking down the hallway... thinking it's just a regular day in his cat existence... when, WHOA, is that a balloon being carried by his shirtless owner?!?

For what reason? With what games in mind? To what end that this cat has to be a part of?!? Watch the feline respond to the sighting now, timing his reaction perfectly:

Warning: The following story will move you to tears, both of the sad and the happy variety.

Last Friday, a Nashville native came into contact with a pit bull who wandered on to her porch.

Seeing clear signs of abuse, the woman made a posting on Craigslist that addressed the animal's owner and stated simply: "Your pit bull found me. And I'm not giving her back."

Abused Animal

The new owner dubbed her new canine Mama Jade and rebuked Jade's previous master in her Craigslist message:

Lindsey Vonn put a baby squirrel on the neck of her boyfriend Tiger Woods at the Presidents Cup yesterday, instantly making for the top sports moment of the week:

Lindsey Vonn, Squirrel, Tiger Woods

The story behind this awesome photo?

Tiger and the U.S. team are playing the International Team in Dublin, Oh., at the biannual golf event. His match finished early, so they were watching his teammates.

During a rain delay earlier in the afternoon, U.S. assistant captain Davis Love III befriended the critter, who he nicknamed "Sammy," apparently for good luck.

He began carrying Sammy around the course with him, and showed him to Lindsey, who went gaga over the little fella and playfully put him on Tiger.

We were wrong. It turns out there is something cuter than a puppy playing with a baby:

A puppy watching over a sleeping baby.

In a ridiculously adorable photo posted to Reddit, user "jpdisco" has given us a look at his canine paying very close attention to his newborn, writing along with the image:

"We were a bit worried how the dog would react [to our first child] when we got home. Needless to say, she digs him."

Dog Adores Newborn

Seriously. Are those tears forming in the dog's eyes even?!? Amazing.

Earlier today, we posted another AWWW-inspiring dog photo, this one of a pet excitedly Skype-bombing his deployed military owner.

Dogs do a lot of cute things every day, but this may take the cake.

In a textbook example of the affection and excitement for their owners that make our four-legged friends so beloved, this one got REALLY excited about seeing his BFF.

On Skype, that is. Check out their long-distance reunion:

Dog on Skype

The dog owner, who goes by the Reddit username Nekofrog, is on deployment in the U.S. military and uses Skype to keep in touch with family back home.

On this particular occasion, he received the best greeting ever.

Clearly, the canine misses his human companion and vice versa, and the photo really says it all better than we can, but two thoughts come to mind:

  1. They need to Skype more often, for both of their sakes
  2. He's going to FREAK when they reunite in person

Some things require very little description.

The government shutdown? Simply symbolic of the current state of political affairs in America. The X Factor? A lame version of American Idol and/or The Voice. The Kim Kardashian sex tape? Hot!

Along those lines, we present a video of a baby playing with a baby. Is any other description even needed?

Watch the AWWW-inspiring footage now:

Prepare to have your heart once again melted by Man's Best Friend.

Earlier today, we posted the video of a dog refusing to let a boy with Down's Syndrome not play with him, gently prodding the toddler to enjoy some fun time together.

And now comes the story of a ninth-month old pit bull terrier named Onyx who saved his family from a burning home last Thursday.

The incident went down in Florida, as Onyx awoke with panicked barks at about 2 a.m. and owners Trevor Myres and Sierra Plair responded by wrestling their two sons awake.

Sometimes, a video will melt your heart. This one certainly fits the bill.

A dog named Himalaya just plain refused to give up on a toddler who doesn't want to play. Gently, but persistently, the canine urged the little guy to have fun!

Hernan, from Buenos Aires, has Down Syndrome, which, according to comments posted by his mom Ana, causes him to shy away from physical contact.

But Himalaya sweetly and kindly pushes forward with the plan to play, and Hernan eventually concedes, giving what looks like a hug at the 3:15 mark.

Watch below if you have a few minutes, it will make your day:
