As part of an annual tradition, British photographer Peter Thorpe dresses his dog Raggle up in various costumes for his Christmas cards.

Each photo is created using elaborate props as opposed to Photoshop, and for 2014, they went with a mouse theme.

This year will be her last, however, as she will be retiring from modeling due to her old age, according to his blog.

Here are a few of the photos from previous years, and you can view more on his website.

Using 3D printed prosthetics, Derby the dog can now walk and run for the first time in his life.

He was born with small forearms and no front paws like a furry little T-Rex, and he could only move around on soft surfaces as a result of the deformity.

So 3D Systems created some new legs for him using a 3D scanner and a multi-material 3D printer that could build both the sturdy base and comfortable rubber cups.

“He runs with Sherri and I every day, at least two to three miles,” said his owner Dom Portanova. “When I saw him sprinting like that on his new legs it was just amazing.”

Watch him in action in the video above.

Good news for your dearly departed Fluffy.

At a recent appearance in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis consoled a young boy whose dog had died saying: "Paradise is open to all of God's creatures."

This is contradictory to traditional Roman Catholic beliefs that animals don't have souls as well as the views of the previous pope, Pope Benedict XVI.

Benedict gave a sermon in 2008 in which he said that after an animal dies, it "just means the end of existence on earth."

The Humane Society is praising the comments, and PETA thinks this might now turn everyone into a vegan.

As an animal lover, Pope Francis (whose name comes from the patron saint of animals, St. Francis of Assisi) also received two donkeys as an early Christmas present this year.

If you live in Allouez, Wisconsin, you may have recently noticed a giant snow monster roaming the city streets with a poodle.

No, no one spiked your eggnog. This is all too real.

A woman calling herself "Bumble" has been spotted walking around the neighborhood dressed as the Abominable Snow Monster of the North from "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" with her dog named Blizzard.

After images of the duo spread online, residents were all like WTF?

According to Fox 11:

When asked what she was doing walking the streets of Allouez, Bumble said she was visiting from Misfit Island.

She also said she is simply there to "bring joy, happiness."

But she forgot to mention "terror," and "confusion."

An emerald green cat that has been lurking around the Black Sea resort of Varna, Bulgaria has people both confused and enraged.

Is it photoshopped? An act of animal cruelty by local hooligans? An alien life form?

According to the latest reports, none of the above.

It was recently discovered that the cat has been sleeping in an abandoned heap of synthetic green paint, and each day the color is getting darker.

Great - now will someone in Bulgaria please adopt this poor creature before it has to spend another night in that pile of ooze?

Everyone knows dogs love to stick their furry faces out car windows, letting their slobbery tongues and ears flap freely on the open road.

But did you know they also love motorcycles?

A new film called "Sit Stay Ride," from husband-wife filmmakers Eric and Geneva Ristau, tells the story of 18 bikers and their 15 badass canine copilots.

The documentary was funded in large part through a Kickstarter campaign, and it is now available on DVD and Vimeo on Demand, with a portion of the proceeds going to the American Humane Society and other animal charities.

His howls are saying "for the love of god please stop."

Maximus the German Shepherd does not like the sound of that creepy Russian trololo song, nor does he enjoy it when his owner sings it in the bathroom.

We feel for you Maximus.
