With all of the seriousness there is in the world, it's often nice to stumble upon a news story, or even a single picture, that does nothing more than make you smile. Just in time to ease you into the weekend, we thought we'd share this heartwarming story with you…
Meet Diggy, the latest pet taking the Internet by storm with devilish good looks and an infectious smile. Until recently, Diggy, or Sir Wiggleton as he was then known, was living at the Detroit Dog Rescue center, passed over for adoption a number of times. However, all of that changed when friends of Waterford musician Dan Tillery alerted him to the dog's existence via Facebook – seemingly because their personable smiles were so similar.
Dan instantly fell in love, and he and his girlfriend Megan quickly offered the American Bulldog-mix a brand new, and incredibly loving home. "I just bought a new house and my girlfriend and I wanted a new dog, so we went down to the rescue and fell in love with him," Dan explains.
Soon after bringing Diggy home, Dan posed for the gorgeous selfie above, which has now been viewed and shared several thousand times. It seems that Diggy is ecstatic to be in his new home at last, and is apparently living the good life with plenty of naps on the couch and meetings with new friends.
According to Dan and his girlfriend, the grinning Diggy is "very smart" and a fan of cuddles and attention. "I've only had him one night, but he's totally cool." However, if Dan was hoping that Diggy would be a fan of his music, he may have to think again. According to an interview with ABC News, Diggy is still somewhat confused by the sight of Dan's guitar.
We hope you enjoy many happy years in your new home, Diggy – keep on smiling!
