Dogs are truly man's best friend.
Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the whole sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.
In fact, it's basically what unites the internet.
There’s one thing it seems we can all agree on – our canine pals are too good for this world.
They are part of the family.
Once you’re a dog parent, it’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.
And they remain one of our nation's favorite pets.
Admit it, all of us pestered our parents for a pet dog at some point during our childhoods… or adulthoods…
But, it's no secret that dogs aren't for everyone...
And that’s fair enough. But what isn’t fair enough is when people neglect and abuse dogs, or any animal, for that matter.
Too many people still hurt and abandon innocent and defenseless animals...
Shockingly, about seventy million stray animals are living in the U.S. alone – proving that alarming numbers of people think it’s acceptable to dump or abandon their pets.
But of course, there is hope.
Many of these animals are rescued so they can be adopted and find their forever homes.
All a dog needs is a second chance...
And for someone to care for them.
Over in Mexico, there's one man doing just that...
And the story will completely melt your heart.
This is Edgardo Perros.
Edgardo has walked a staggering 14,000 km around the perimeter of Mexico rescuing injured and sick stray dogs.
Over the last six years, he has saved and rehomed nearly five-hundred dogs.
His generosity and kindness has truly struck a chord with locals, who see him pushing a trolley with dogs in tow.
He has helped when no one else was willing to.
“No one helps dogs living homeless on the roads. This is where I saw their pain,” explained the forty-nine-year-old. “What hurts me the most, is not the battered, hurt or abandoned dogs. It is the person that is doing it.”
Sadly, he has found many dogs that were too far gone to be rescued.
“Usually, I just keep them company, until in a natural way, they rest,” he said.
Edgardo now only has 1,432 km left to travel to reach his goal.
And his 3 dogs keep him company during all his rescue missions.
He is not going to stop anytime soon.
“I can’t live the rest of my life just saying ‘I traveled once around Mexico and helped dogs.’ I want to continue to work with dogs” If you would like to contribute to Edgardo and his journey, click here.

There's nothing quite as beautiful as our Planet Earth...
So just imagine the joy of constructing it piece by piece! This awe-inspiringly detailed image comes from the Terra satellite which shows the lights in the cities of Europe and Africa glimmer as the sun shines on the Americas.
A team of scientists and graphic artists painstakingly spliced and layered the satellite’s imagery together to create this giant single image...
This ensures that every square inch of this puzzle – including the land, the water, the clouds, and the snow – is a clear and precise depiction of our amazing planet.

This round 1,000 piece burning Sun puzzle captures our nearest star in a way you simply cannot see without the help of space-age technologies. Get it from T.A.G.Share
This puzzle allows us to see the Sun in an unimaginable amount of intensity...
The flares of light across this image are the sun preparing to erupt with a “coronal mass ejection,” during which a tremendous amount of plasma explodes from the sun’s surface – something that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
This would take a lot of patience to construct...
But the finishing result would be totally worth it.
The Moon Jigsaw
This gorgeous 1,000 piece circle puzzle of the moon shows the moon looking just as bright and beautiful as it does when it makes a full appearance once a month. Get it from T.A.G.Share
The attention to detail is something else...
The dark areas we see across the surface are vast stretches of lava rock that create a stark contrast against one of the moon’s most well-known characteristics — craters.
But despite the huge sizes of these craters...
In this puzzle, they’re shown with such clarity and detail that it makes the whole moon feel like it’s so close it’s just a ball you could pick up and throw with one hand.
Each puzzle is made from high-quality recycled cardboard and packaged with minimal "puzzle dust."
The images are crisp and vibrant, and the shapes are cut with maximum precision to ensure each piece fits tightly together, no matter how many times you choose to take this puzzle apart and put it back together again.
