Animal Photos Of The Week

It's been a fun week for animals.

Do you know anyone who has included their dog in their wedding ceremony? Check out these pictures from canine-friendly weddings. If your dog is more into goofing off, you might like this video of Drake, the sock-catching Golden Retriever.

Sometimes our animal friends can be a little mean. For example, check out this cat that decided to steal its owner's mail.

If you're looking for a cute video that also includes a baby animal, look no further than this video of Hamlet the pig and his milk bottle.

More exotic animals also made the news this week. It was announced that scientists working in New Guinea have discovered the world's smallest vertebrate. The tiny frog fits inside of a dime and is less than a third of an inch long.

Footage was also released this week of a "rare, nearly all-white leucistic Chinstrap penguin" on the South Shetland Islands near Antarctica.

Sadly, a woman from rural Indiana had 82 dogs removed from her home this week. The Associated Press reports she may face animal cruelty charges.

Check out some of the best animal pictures from around the world this week, and be sure to tell us about your favorites!
