They are called Man's Best Friend for a reason.

Although, perhaps we ought to expand this to Man and Boy's Best Friend.

The following video tells the story of Ace, a Pit Bull who awoke yesterday to the sound of a smoke detector in his home and immediately ran to the bedroom of his young owner, 13-year old Nick Lamb.

Nick was born deaf and he takes out his cochlear implants when he sleeps.

No one else was home at the time of the incident, which Nick described to a local Indiana outlets as follows:

"My dog licked my face and woke me up. I was like, ‘Stop it! What? You want to be fed?’ I thought he wanted to be fed or go outside."

Good news, idiotic men who fail miserably at trying to seduce women online:

You're not alone!

Many dogs around the world have also been known to attempt various things - jumping, catching treats, looking through windows - only to tragically fail at these everyday life tasks.

And the saddest most hilarious part? They're often caught on camera!

Don't worry: the only thing that will hurt upon clicking through these photos and GIFs is your funny bone. No canines were seriously harmed while falling flat on their adorable faces. Enjoy!

Here I come, couch!
Did someone move these pieces of furniture farther apart when I was asleep?!?

As has been previously documented, dogs often make unexpected friends.

Take this horse and this canine, for example.

But these surprising relationships can go both ways, as evidenced by Pigalina, a baby animal who was sadly rejected by her original owner.

Fortunately, Melissa Suko of PIGS Animal Sanctuary in West Virginia took in the inquisitive teacup pig, giving Pigalina a happy home and new best friend: a Pit Bull named Levi!

As you can see in the following GIF, these two are totally close pals now. According to Pigalina, at least.

Levi seems content to just lie around and nap, but at least he doesn't mind when his little playmate tries to nuzzle up to him:

Piglet Loves Pit Bull

Totally adorable, right?

It really only takes one thing to make a dog happy: love.

That much was made clear this week when we reported on a deaf, formerly abused canine... who has been adopted and is now so happy that he wags his tail in his sleep.

And now Gritta Götz is offering up some more adorable proof.

She runs an animal sanctuary in Lanzenhainer, Germany for “more than two dozen formerly-unwanted dogs,” as she tells The Dodo. And eight of these pets are bound to wheelchairs.

But that does mean they can't happily chase a stick and live exciting lives? No, it clearly does not:

  • Dogs Play Fetch in Wheelchairs
  • Fun in Wheelchairs!

We all can learn a lot from these animals.

Say hello to Frank.

This adorable puppy was adopted when he was five months old, with owner Rafael Borges writing online that the dog was not vaccinated at the time he was taken in.

Frank only weighed seven pounds, as his pervious owner kept him in a small area and didn’t treat a number of infections. As a result, Frank is deaf.

Shadows made the canine nervous, and "his only friend was a torn blanket," Borges says in maybe the saddest statement of all-time.

But there's a happy ending here, folks! Frank now has a stable home and is so in love with life that he wags his tail in his sleep. Don’t believe us?

See for yourself:

It was about time we posted some positive pet news, right?

Following this story about a dog who refused to leave his dead owner's side and this one about the world's most depressed polar bear?

We apologize ahead of time for making you cry again, dog lovers.

But a day after posting photos of this canine's last day on earth, we're back to the share the story of pit bull/terrier who remained by the side of his late owner in Oklahoma City over the weekend, despite local temperatures hitting 100 degrees.

Animal control officers were eventually called to the scene on Saturday, taking the poor pup to a local shelter, but fighting him every step of the way, as the dog kept trying to make his way back to his best friend's corpse.

Authorities say the owner died of natural causes.

The dog now resides at the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, though he refuses to eat, to drink or even lift his head.

Look, not all pets can be brave.

For every Hero Cat, there's the feline who is totally freaked out by, well, a carpet. Especially when that carpet has weird, intricate patterns on it and it has replace your old carpet and... yeah.

We're out of excuses for this kitten.

But we're also laughing out loud at his very bouncy attempt to figure out what the heck is going on:

We already know cats can jump really high.

Some parents out there continue to make kids cry these days. In the most loving ways possible, that is.

First, there was the son who lost it over the gift of Minecraft.

Then, there was the daughter whose parents shocked her with a puppy... and who cried tears of joy as a result.

Now, another young girl is giving the latter recipient a run for her emotional money, as the following video depicts an eight-year old receiving a dog for her birthday - and melting down on the spot.

Watch the grateful waterworks now:

Can you really blame these girls for having such a reaction? Puppies are adorable!!!

WARNING, pet-loving readers of The Hollywood Gossip: the following photo gallery will make you cry.

But it will also make you smile.

As first reported by BuzzFeed, the Roberts family learned in May that their beloved Black Labrador, Duke, had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer.

They scheduled his euthanization with a local veterinarian, but first decided to send Duke out on the happiest note possible.

His final day included hamburgers... time with friends... and splashing through a water park.

"It was beautiful, really. One thing just fell into the next," said photographer Robyn Arouty, who was hired to document the day. "It started with the hamburgers, then the boys came over, then other friends...

"And then Duke walked under 'The Rainbow Bridge,' which is ironically also a term used for the place where pets go when they die. I felt honored."

Relive Duke's final, amazing day below and then check out a similar move made by an owner in April. She created a Dog Bucket List.

A Breakfast of Hamburgers
Duke woke up on his final day of life to a plate full of hamburgers. YUM!
