While the world is reeling from the news that Paul Walker died over the weekend, a South Jersey family's grief hit a little closer to home.

Karen Quigley said goodbye to Elwood, her well-loved but very ugly dog. The Chinese Crested-Chihuahua mix died in his owner's arms on Thanksgiving morning. They say all dogs go to heaven, right?

"The best part was he did not suffer," Quigley said. "I couldn't be more proud that people who haven't met him loved him...I couldn't be more proud."

Elwood was only 2 when he first began turning heads with his unique looks. In 2007, he was named the World's Ugliest Dog at the annual competition held in Petaluma, California at the Sonoma-Marin Fair.

"He's very confident in his looks," Quigley said. The dog's life lesson, according to his owner, is that "you don't have to be perfect to be special."

Challenge extended, dog who can balance anything on your head.

Yes, you are cute. And you sure are talented.

But the cat in the following video is named Scotty and he can sit up and lick a lollipop! Just like a human being can and often does!

It's extremely adorable, though we caution readers to perhaps watch without their volume turned on. Scotty's owners are a bit frightening in their encouragement of this unusual action.

See what we mean now:

It doesn't get much cuter than pets riding around on a Roomba.

Unless we're talking about a puppy napping with a baby.

But it might not get much more talented, pet-wise, than this canine named Scout.

As you can tell in the following photos, Scout is a master at balancing stuff on his head. Such as computers. Or cat food bowls. Or bundles of asparagus.

The pictures, appropriately, are courtesy of a site called stuffonscoutshead.com:

Hot guys. Cats. If only a blog would come along that combined the two in hilarious fashion. Oh, hey wait! There's Des Hommes et Des Chatons! Woo!

The site, which translates to Men and Cats, is devoted solely to photos of attractive men with pictures of adorable cats imitating their modeling poses.

The brilliant match-ups feature a variety of heartthrobs and felines. The only question is which creatures viewers might find it more enjoyable to ogle ...

Moral of the story? Where there is a hot guy giving a come-hither stare, gazing introspectively, laughing or having a beverage, there is a cat doing the same.

The more you click through the growing collection of model-cat juxtapositions (below), the more uncanny the resemblance between the two subjects seem.

See a bunch of the best photo examples for yourself below ...

Miley Cyrus turned 21 yesterday.

So we can't really blame the artist for lounging around in bed this morning. We're guessing she had quite the legal night!

Cyrus posted a handful of selfless to Twitter today, two of which included her adorable dogs. She captioned one image "perfect start to a perfect day" and added of another, in reference to a pooch:

"I love him soooo f--king much I can't stand it."

An Albuquerque, N.M., woman put her puppy in a Ziploc bag and held it up for the camera, in an attempt to show Facebook friends how small the dog is.

We know, we can't believe it either ... that someone would really do that, that she'd be stupid enough to post it online, or that this person has any friends.

Mary Snell, 44, and her son, Britton James Engel, 21, were both arrested in Bernalillo County last week once a tipster alerted police to the photo, CNN reports.

Engel allegedly took the photo of Snell holding up the the eight-week-old Chihuahua, named Baby, in the bag, which was just big enough to envelop it.

She later told reporters that she realized this stunt was wrong, but, well, she "couldn't get the little guy to hold still any other way," according to KRQE-TV.

Deputies said that the position of the poor puppy - face and nose pressed up against the sides of the bag - could have easily deprived it of oxygen.

Both Engel and Snell were charged with felony animal cruelty. Baby is doing fine and, thank goodness, now lives with another family member.

Jose Canseco got pulled over by the police for speeding this week.

Pretty regular circumstance, right? Not exactly worthy of a celebrity gossip post? Perhaps it will be now:

The former Major League Baseball star and admitted steroids user was transporting a pet goat in the backseat at the time.

Canseco had Tweeted early on Wednesday that he and girlfriend Leila Knight has purchased a few fainting goats, asking followers for name suggestions.

It started with a shark cat on a Roomba.

Then, a regular, non-costumed dog took a ride on this household cleaning appliance.

And now the adorable phenomenon has taken off! It's spread from kitchen to kitchen, hardwood floor to hardwood floor around the nation. Animals simply won't stop riding Roombas, people!

And it's totally awesome. Watch a video compilation of these pets gliding around happily now:

Jon Byler Dann survived the devastating tornado that struck Washington, Ill., by hunkering down in the basement with his four children, ages 8, 5, 2½ and 1½.

An important member of the family was still in harm's way, however.

Before the storm, as debris started to hit his house, Byler Dann says he had tried to coax the family dog, Maggie, into the safe room with the family.

The skittish animal refused to leave her kennel.

After the storm passed, Byler Dann emerged from the basement to find that his home of five years had been destroyed above him. Totally leveled.

Maggie was missing and presumed dead.

Another photo of a dog sleeping has captured the heart of the World Wide Web.

A couple days after shots of a puppy cuddling with a nappy baby went viral, we're excited and moved to present the following image of Jeffrey and Jermaine.

The former is blind, the latter is his guide dog and the eight-month old canines were discovered on the streets of Philadelphia by an animal rescue organization called Operation Ava.

Blind Dog and His Brother

"The unconditional love and devotion these two dogs show is positively inspirational," reads a post from the Chester County SPCA, which shared this image on Facebook late last week.
