Dogs are famously known as "man's best friend" but they're pretty great pals to each other too. Case in point: Charlie, the 11-year-old Golden Retriever, and his "seeing eye" puppy Maverick. After Charlie lost both his eyes to glaucoma (one in 2016 and the other a year later), his owners Adam and Chelsea Stipe brought Maverick into the family in January. The dogs bond took time to develop, but now Maverick acts as a companion to Charlie, who can't see on his own.
"When they would play, Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so (Maverick) would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime," Chelsea told NBC Philadelphia.
Adam and Chelsea started an Instagram account featuring Charlie and Maverick's adventures. Despite the 10 years between them, they love to play, cuddle, and nap together, at their home in North Carolina. Ahead, see a few of their adorable moments together - they'll warm your heart right up.

Pizza-lovers, prepare to get your parmesan on because Pizza Hut is bringing back the fan-favorite P'Zone - and the amount of cheese stuffed into these giant pizza pockets is already sending me into a mozzarella-induced nap. A Pizza Hut fan-favorite, this parmesan-crusted, calzone-inspired snack has been so popular during the last 17 years as an on-again, off-again menu item that it doesn't even need to actually be a pizza to be considered the Official Pizza of NCAA March Madness.
"We are excited to bring back the P'Zone as part of our $5 Lineup during a time when family and friends will be gathering in anticipation and excitement," said Marianne Radley, Pizza Hut's chief brand officer, in a press release. "Even if your team doesn't advance in the tournament, the comeback of the P'Zone is something we know all fans can rally around." The P'Zone is also available on its own in three savory flavors, including Pepperoni, Meaty, and Supremo. The Meaty P'Zone is made with melted cheese, pepperoni, ham, pork, beef, and Italian sausage, while the Supremo P'Zone is stuffed with green pepper, red onion, Italian sausage, and melted cheese.

Have you even been chillin' on a pool float, enjoying the sun, perhaps a cocktail, and thought to yourself, "Man, I wish my dog could join me"? Your pup doesn't have to hang under an umbrella by his lonesome any longer. It's time to let your pet party with the humans. Walmart just released this Paws Aboard Inflatable Doggy Lazy Raft ($39), and we are shook. The float is made with special material so your dog's paws won't puncture it - genius!

A man thought a ghost was cleaning up his tool shed, but it turned out to be a mouse! https://t.co/Zx6D2QZ6n2 pic.twitter.com/sgYAmDleEv

When I lived in a ground-floor apartment in New York City, I spent a considerable amount of time chasing and trying to capture mice. They'd hide in my oven, underneath the electric stove burners, and inside microscopic holes in baseboards. Never did I stop to think that these mice might've been swinging by my apartment to help me clean up the place.
Sound preposterous? It's not. In a now-viral Twitter thread that's been covered by a number of news outlets, England-based Stephen McKears, a retired technician, shares home footage of a strange mouse tidying up his tool shed. After noticing that his garage was getting mysteriously organized each night - large screws and bolts were getting put away - he set up a hidden camera to catch whatever uninvited figure (he thought it was a ghost) was sneaking into his shed each night to clean up his tools. What he found was a complete surprise. Not only was a mouse doing the labor, but the rodent was putting in serious sweat equity - McKears said he cleaned up for...
Looks like we have yet another excuse to stop by the closest Chick-fil-A drive-thru. The restaurant just announced a brand-new Frosted Key Lime, which is a tasty twist on the ultrapopular Frosted Lemonade. Made with a combination of vanilla IceDream, Lemonade (or Diet Lemonade), and "a natural, sugar-free lime flavoring made from a blend of key limes, kaffir limes, and Persian limes," this drink - more like a milkshake - is sweet, tart, and totally refreshing.
Frosted Key Lime is launching nationwide after a successful test run in Austin, TX, restaurants last Fall. It will be on all menus from Monday, March 18 through Saturday, May 25, so cheers to Spring and treat yourself while you can. The lime-filled beverage joins Chick-fil-A's lineup of other frosty items like the Frosted Sunrise and Frosted Coffee, and if you've had any of them, you know how irresistible they are.

If you haven't done so already, go ahead and assemble your tag team for your next trip to Trader Joe's, because cotton candy grapes are officially back on shelves, and we'd hate for you to miss out on this golden opportunity to snag some. Cotton candy grapes are seedless green grapes that taste exactly like the hand-spun sugar clouds you used to eat at carnivals as a kid. They're a hybrid version of different grape vines and they're normally only sold during the Summer months, between August and September.
For the past few years, they've been a huge hit in grocery stores like Trader Joe's, Costco, Whole Foods, and Wegmans. Luckily for us, the grapes arrived at Trader Joe's early this year, and people are already going crazy for them. "This is the first year I have found them at Trader Joe's and bonus this early in the season. I brought a package home and OMG they are so sweet!" one happy shopper wrote on Instagram.
According to another user who spotted packages on shelves in her local store, they're being sold for $5.50 a pound. If you're looking for a way to satisfy your sweet tooth, you might want to run to Trader Joe's as quickly as you can.
If you're a fan of all things cute and tiny, then chances are that you're familiar with kawaii culture. But if you aren't, the Japanese cultural style that embraces bright colors, cartoon animals, and putting adorable faces on inanimate objects is so fun. And a perfect example of kawaii is this Little B Dumpling Ambient Light ($12, originally $17) from Smoko. Whether your little one is afraid of the dark, or you just want a cuter way to help your guests find their way to the bathroom at night, we couldn't think of a better late-night companion.
Little B, Smoko's latest Dim Sum series character (Dim Sum being bite-size portions of food served in steamer baskets or little plates), is a Xiao Long Bao, or soup dumpling. Measuring four inches in height and made of soft silicone material, Little B is happy to perch just about anywhere you want to put him. He runs on batteries, but he's equipped with a one-hour auto shut-off feature to help your batteries last as long as possible.
Smoko is known for its super-kawaii (and super affordable) gifts and accessories, and this little guy is the perfect way to add a little light and whimsy to your home. We dare you to look at Little B's face...
I'll be honest - I never thought I would be the type of person who enjoyed living alone. Since I've always loved being around other people, the thought of renting an apartment on my own sounded isolating and lonely. All four years of college, I shared a roof with either two or three other girls, and after I graduated, I moved in with my then-boyfriend and his brother. I always had someone to talk to, eat dinner with, and make me feel more secure if I heard strange noises in the middle of the night.
The following year, I signed a 13-month lease on a one-bedroom apartment with the same boyfriend, thinking if we got a place of our own, some of the issues in our relationship would dissipate. Not even four weeks elapsed before it became painfully clear - this wasn't where I wanted to be. And not the apartment, but the relationship. Maybe it was out of guilt, but when I finally gathered up the courage to break things off, I let him be the one to move out.
I'll never forget that feeling. I was 23 and freshly single, and not only was I stuck for another 12 months in an apartment I couldn't afford on my own, but I was now living by myself - something I swore I never had a desire to do....
We all know and love red velvet cake, but let's try out a different color: green for St. Patrick's Day!

It's no secret that we love Amazon for its useful and sometimes quirky products. But we have to admit we also love spending hours reading customer testimonials. There's something satisfying about buying a product that you know has been tried and tested by someone else. We went on a mission to uncover the site's highest rated items, so you don't have to. From makeup organizers to weighted blankets and essential oils, we curated a list of its 25 hottest hits ahead. Take a look.
Pouring a bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast is cool and all, but what about scooping Lucky Charms ice cream into a bowl? Now we're talking. This festive St. Patrick's Day dessert recipe comes from the chefs at 24 Carrots Catering, and the beauty of it is you can make it as easy or elevated as you want. For the quickest shortcut, you can use your favorite store-bought vanilla ice cream and fold in crushed and whole Lucky Charms pieces, or kick things up a notch with mint chip or Guinness ice cream.
Alternatively, if you're a homemade ice cream pro, you can follow the step-by-step recipe for vanilla ice cream and then incorporate the Lucky Charms cereal. Served in decorative glasses with extra rainbow and four-leaf clover marshmallows on top, this ice cream is guaranteed to steal the spotlight at any St. Patrick's Day festivity.
My favorite desserts to make for big family meals or dinner parties can come together in a matter of minutes, or even as an afterthought. They don't require ingredients that are hard to find and they are visually impressive. Such is the case with this simple strawberry tart. I got my hands on some bright red strawberries recently and immediately craved them on top of a buttery crust with a healthy dollop of freshly whipped cream.
All you need are strawberries, a sheet of frozen puff pastry, whipping cream, and sugar to create a beautiful Spring dessert. Puff pastry can be a little bit tricky to work with. You'll want to thaw it ahead of time, but it needs to be kept cold so that you can easily work with it. After that, all you need to do is plop it on a baking sheet, slice and arrange your strawberries nicely, sprinkle a bit of sugar and bake until it begins to turn golden brown and the strawberries cook through. Finish with a dusting of powdered sugar and a dollop of homemade whipped cream.
While this recipe technically serves four, it disappeared really quickly, so I would suggest making two for any...
The purpose of a bachelorette party is to celebrate both your departure from singledom and the sacred bond of sisterhood. If, for you, that means dancing in a club all night and drinking cocktails from a suggestively shaped straw, then by all means, have at it!

From the rugged rainforest to breathtaking beaches, the following destination ideas focus on relaxation, wellness, and self-care - strippers not included.
I was fortunate enough to grow up in a house where my mom cooked for our family of six just about every night. My mom is Italian and grew up with seven sisters and two brothers in New York, so her knack for cooking and love of food likely stemmed from sitting down to home-cooked meals with a family of 12 on a regular basis. You could say she knows a thing or two (thousand) about cooking.
Now that I'm an adult and love cooking just as much as she does (I even get paid to write about food!), I'm always trying to master the art of cooking as a 20-something on a budget. I rely on my mom's passed-down knowledge more than I could have imagined, and while she taught me plenty of recipes (everything I know about pasta, I owe it to her) and has answered an embarrassing number of my midcooking-panic questions over the phone, there's one solid piece of cooking advice that has stuck with me the most:
As in, you don't need a recipe to cook something, and you don't have to have a full pantry and fridge to get dinner on the table. My mom is the queen of pulling scraps from the fridge and freezer and seemingly magically turning them into a cohesive,...
Area rugs can add a lot of style and function to almost any room. Put one in your kitchen to keep your feet comfortable while you're cooking or doing the dishes; make one the focal point of your living room while amping up the coziness; or put one next to your bed so you feel the plush, soft comfort when you swing your feet onto the floor every morning. And, of course, they can help you distract from that ugly flooring in your rental. But while area rugs are useful and beautiful, they're not immune to mess, and can attract all manner of grime, crumbs, spills, stains, and dust. The good news is, because they're so portable, they're pretty easy to clean with the right know-how. Here's what you need to do.
With carpet, you can only vacuum one side, potentially pushing dust and crumbs further into the fibers rather than sucking them up. An area rug, on the other hand, can be vacuumed more thoroughly on both sides. Vacuum the fiber side first, then flip it over and...
If you're looking to spruce up your living room, the best place to start is with your sofa.

Surprisingly, we found 15 impressive picks that all come in under $350. So what are you waiting for? Keep reading to shop these hot picks before it's too late.

It stretches (up to 16 inches), it squeaks, and it makes any pup look ready for a warm-weather family gathering.
