13 Pop Culture Pups That Steal Our Dog-Loving Hearts Every Time They're On-Screen

Today is International Dog Day and that means that it's time to appreciate all of the fictional pups we love. And there are a lot of them. After all, who doesn't love it when a dog pops up on their television screen?

Ghost from "Game of Thrones"

Giphy

Ghost might have been the runt of the litter, but everyone knows the runt always ends up being the cutest.

Chance and Shadow from "Homeward Bound"

Giphy

How can anyone not love those faces?

Also, Chance and Shadow are two of the most loyal pups you'll find. Do you know how far they traveled to get back to their humans? (If the answer is no, you have a movie to watch.)

Toto from "The Wizard of Oz"

Giphy

It's OK, Dorothy. We'd wander into a tornado looking for Toto, too.

Champion from "Parks and Recreation"

Giphy

Was there ever a more perfect dog for April and Andy than Champion? Plus, their choice to adoption pushes viewers to adopt dogs who need it — even if they are handicapped in some way.

Marley from "Marley and Me"

Giphy

You just can't have a list of pop culture pups without including Marley from "Marley and Me." And even though Marley was a menace, we adored him.

Comet from "Full House"

Giphy

Admit it. You were almost as happy as the Tanner kids themselves when they decided to keep Comet. And he really did make "Full House" 10 times as fun to watch.

Copper from "The Fox and the Hound"

Giphy

Copper might be a hound dog, but his loyalty to his friend Todd is the real reason that we love him. Don't pretend you didn't cry at the end of this movie.

Every single dalmation from "101 Dalmations"

Giphy

Why choose one pup you love, when you can have 101? At least, that was Roger and Anita's mentality, and we're sticking with it.

Slinky Dog from "Toy Story"

Giphy

True to typical dog fashion, Slinky Dog was Woody's most loyal friend. He was also the voice of reason throughout the "Toy Story" franchise, and most of us found ourselves rooting for him — even when the rest of the characters

Balto from "Balto"

Giphy

If "Balto" wasn't one of your favorite movies growing up, were you actually a dog lover?

Scooby from "Scooby Doo"

Giphy

If Scooby didn't have you doubled over with laughter, you clearly weren't watching the right "Scooby Doo."

Courage from "Courage the Cowardly Dog"

Giphy

Courage is terrified of everything, but we love him anyway (and we loved getting to witness his rare moments of bravery).

Charlie from "All Dogs Go To Heaven"

Giphy

Because as Whippet Angel put it, "Unlike people, dogs are naturally good and loyal and kind." And when it comes to Charlie, we couldn't agree more.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
