In case you’re unfamiliar, Harlow and Sage were a pair of puppy besties who took the internet by storm once their owners started posting pics of the pups hanging out and being all adorable.
Sadly, Sage passed away in 2013. But that’s when Indiana, a Miniature Dachshund, popped into the picture and became instant BFF’s with Harlow. Oh, but the cuteness doesn’t end there. Recently, another new canine friend has entered the fold and our heart is almost bursting from all the feels.
Meet, Reese Lightning. Here’s her story:
Reese Lightning is a 9 week old miniature Dachshund. Her parents couldn’t keep her and so Harlow said: “Move her in!” And now she is ours. Reese’s mom had black hair and her dad was a brunette like Indiana. They were both nice. Reese loves biting Indiana’s tail, Harlow’s ears, playing with socks and last night she couldn’t take her eyes off of the TV while the movie Elf was on.
A very intelligent black Lab named Eclipse, who lives in Seattle, rides the bus a couple of times a week by herself in order go the dog park. She simply boards the bus in front of her home, rides for a few stops and then gets off in front of the park, where she sometimes meets her human Jeff Young. Young told KOMO News that Eclipse’s solo trips came about accidentally when he didn’t finish his cigarette in time to board the bus.
We get separated. She gets on the bus without me, and I catch up with her at the dog park. …It’s not hard to get on. She gets on in front of her house and she gets off at the dog park, three or four stops later.She’s been here the last two years, so she’s been urbanized, totally. She’s a bus-riding, sidewalk-walking dog. …Probably once a week I get a phone call. ‘Hi. I have your dog Eclipse here on 3rd and Bell. …I have to tell them, ‘no. She’s fine.’ She knows what she’s doing.

Meet Gluta, a dog whose adorable smiles are so infectious you might find yourself inadvertently grinning, too. Looking at her happy face, it might be hard to believe that Gluta was once a stray dog abandoned on the streets of Thailand. Luckily, she was taken in by Sorasart Wisetsin, who lovingly nursed her back to health after discovering that the pup had some serious medical issues. After being diagnosed with metritis, Gluta had to have her uterus removed. Although she seemed to be getting better, it wasn’t too long before she was further diagnosed with cervical cancer. A year and a half of chemotherapy and surgical laser treatments later, Gluta was finally tumor-free.
“Her sad eyes turned to shine brightly with cheer like never before,” says her human. “And from now on, there will be only smile on her face.” Since her recovery, Gluta’s bright face and wagging tail have brought joy to everyone who sees her, including her many online fans. Whether she’s tagging along with Wisetsin on his travels, wearing silly props, playing with her canine friend Gollum, or posing patiently for a photo, Gluta radiates warmth, happiness, and a truly beautiful spirit.
