We love cupcakes and we love dogs, so this pairing makes a sweet confection.

Hero Dog

We cannot tell a lie, this pup is adorable in his Abraham Lincoln costume.

This little guy, Diesel, is not much bigger than a real lobster.


Submitted by: jsbrooks2

We bet this adorable pair gets into lots of mischief together, with the bigger dog leading the way. (The little stuffed dog can't think for itself.)
