It's official, and officially adorable: dogs love soccer!

Over the past several days, we've posted one video of a dog playing striker and goalie, along with another of a canine excitingly watching the World Cup.

Now, THG presents a Labrador Retriever who totally riveted by Sunday's Portugal-United States match, one that ended in disaster for the Americans when their opponent tied the score at 2 in the waning seconds.

But perhaps watching this dog's reaction to that stunning goal will make anyone associated with the U.S. feel a bit better:

Seriously, can ESPN just include a box in the corner of its screen of this dog watching every World Cup game going forward?

The following video will break your heart. And lift your spirit.

Produced by the animal rescue organization Hope for Paws, it chronicles the journey of a dog named Theo.

After being abandoned by his owners, the canine was found under a trailer in Compton, California. His hair was all matted. He was initially terrified by human touch and/or interaction.

But Hope for Paws took Theo in, cleaned him up, nourished him and, within two weeks, the dog's tail was wagging and he was happily enjoying the company of two other rescues.

Watch this incredible, inspiring transformation now:

Last year, Hope for Paws posted the video of a dog saved from a trash heap and nursed back to health.

Let's be clear: Footage of a dog and a baby doing pretty much anything is adorable.

Consider this baby laughing at its pet eating popcorn... or these photos of a dog and a baby napping together.

But the following video trumps all similar videos that have come before it. Because it features a dog teaching its very small owner how to crawl. Seriously. For real.

Titled “Buddy’s Baby Crawling School,” the video starts with the child in question struggling with how to move on all fours... only for her furry friend to then scurry into position and show her how it's done.

This is, literally, the cutest thing you will see on the Internet in 2014:

Lady Gaga's bizarre fashion sense has earned her plenty of criticism, but a photo the singer posted to Instagram recently is creating even more controversy than Gaga's own onstage attire:

Lady Gaga's Dog

That's Gaga's French bulldog, Asia, and while the singer clearly posted the pic as a joke, animal right's activist groups like PETA are finding the photo anything but funny.

"Lady Gaga may choose to decorate herself with elaborate and even uncomfortable outfits, but Asia doesn't get to make that choice," said PETA in a statement posted on the organization's website. 

"Though it seems clear that Lady Gaga loves Asia, we think Asia - and all dogs - are adorable without the added flair."

Gaga has yet to respond to the criticism, which is not surprising, as we're sure the Mother Monster's publicists are working overtime these days:

Think this dog is excited to eat?

Okay, he clearly is.

But so is the Corgi in the following video, as the little guy does a happy dance in honor of his breakfast being poured, sporadically pulling the mat on which his bowl rests closer and closer to him, lest anyone gank his meal.

You best hurry up and chow down, buddy...

In the mood for more adorable Corgi action?

If patience is a virtue, the following feline might as well be Mother Teresa.

The video below features an unnamed cat putting up with an energetic puppy, one who attacks his ear... climbs on board his body... and acts as a general pest.

But how does the kitten react? Better than we do when growing angry over the nonsense each week on Keeping Up with the Kardashians:

Impressive, huh? And totally adorable?

Ready to meet the World's Ugliest Dog?

This annual competition was held for the 26th year in California on Saturday night, with a 2-year-old mutt named Peanut taking home top bottom honors.

World's Ugliest Dog Photo

Owner Holly Chandler (of Greenville, North Carolina) said her canine’s wild hair, bulging eyes and protruding teeth belie were the result of his first owner actually burning him as a puppy.

She plans to use the $1,500 grand prize to help with Peanut's veterinary bills.

The quintet of dogs in the following video are about to go on a hike.

But before they can burn off some calories, they have to answer their owner's roll call... in the most adorable way imaginable.

Watch as the canines wait patiently for their name to be called as Nikita is initially reluctant and Wesley needs a lot of coaxing.

But can you blame the guy? That's a long way for a Basset Hound to jump!

Looking for more canine cuteness?

What does an American Idol, a disgraced professional basketball player and an Emmy winner have in common?

The same thing as an Oscar winner, a Justin Bieber-loving pop star and the Mother of Dragons: 

They all adore their pets!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder than Willow Smith lying in bed with grown men, now comes word that both Willow and her brother Jaden enjoy sleeping with freakin' snakes in their beds. Snakes!

Jaden and Willow Smith

And not just any snakes, either. Rumor has it one of Willow's thirteen pet serpents is a boa constrictor. Yes, the sort of boa constrictor that can crush you to death before swallowing you whole.

Believe it or not, it gets weirder:

"She has ten sleeping in her room," a source tells Us Weekly. "And some of them aren't in cages"

Okay, so Willow has a weird and possibly unsafe relationship with her pets, but surely older brother Jaden has a better understanding of the boundaries between man and thing-that-can-kill-man, right?
