This Foster Dog’s Reunion With Its Caretaker Will Have You Sobbing

There are times when I come across a truly unique and heartwarming story, and I just can’t keep it to myself. If you’re in the mood for a tearjerker (they will be tears of joy, I promise), you’ll want to hear about a story that started trending on Twitter on Monday, Oct. 14. It involves a lovely foster dog, a generous caretaker, and a series of coincidences. Honestly, the story of this foster dog’s reunion with its caretaker has an ending that’ll have you smiling through your happy tears.

Kate Howard (@JournoKateH on Twitter), who is the managing editor at the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, shared the heartwarming story on her Twitter page Monday night. By Tuesday morning, it was featured in the Animals section of Twitter news. As of publication, Howard’s original tweet has over 21,000 likes and 4,000 retweets.

OK, do you have your tissues ready? Howard’s story begins with her sitting on her porch, after attending a memorial service of a friend who had passed away "far too soon." While sitting on her sunlit porch, a woman and her curious dog stopped at her yard. Per her description in the tweet, the pup was "cute, a brown pitty girl with white markings," and her owner called her Winnie.

Interestingly enough, Howard herself had fostered a dog named Winnie over the Thanksgiving holiday in November 2018. Are your Spidey senses tingling yet?

Leading up to her week of fostering Winnie last November, Howard tells Elite Daily, "[I] saw her face on the foster group on Facebook … and I drove right over! I happened to be off work and didn’t have any Thanksgiving plans, and thought this was the only time I’d have enough time to care for a puppy." After their week together, the pup was put up for adoption. According to Howard’s tweet, at the time, she "cried for three days after she was spayed and went up for adoption, worrying about whether she had found a good home."

Nearly a year later, Howard couldn’t help but wonder if this curious dog was the same little pup, so she asked the owner whether or not she adopted Winnie with that name, and Winnie’s new owner said she did. She also told her that she adopted this dog last November. It turns out, this was the exact same Winnie she had fostered. You guys, can you even handle?

After Howard confirmed the pup comforting her after the loss of her friend was, in fact, the same Winnie she fostered nearly a year prior, Winnie’s new owner revealed the circumstances surrounding the dog’s adoption last November. She told Howard, at the time of Winnie’s adoption, she had recently lost a dog and lined up early to adopt the pooch after seeing her adorable face on the Louisville Metro Animal Services site.

It was truly the right time and right place for the reunion: Howard had only moved into the neighborhood a couple months prior, now living just a block over from Winnie and her owner. Also, if it hadn’t been for Howard’s attendance at her friend’s memorial service (who was also a dog-lover), she wouldn’t have even been at home on a workday to spot her beloved foster pup.

The whole story is a series of coincidental events that all began when Howard spread her good will and decided to foster a dog last November. After seeing Winnie, it’s no surprise both Howard and Winnie’s new owner drove right to the shelter after seeing her pic on the site. Even though Howard had a short time with Winnie, the pooch sure made an impression, especially since they "were together 24/7 until I brought her back for surgery and adoption," as Howard tells Elite Daily.

Though Howard may miss Winnie, she and her current dog, Foxy, now have the opportunity see her more often since they’re neighbors. Foxy was rescued by Howard 13 years ago, and her playdates with Winnie are downright adorable, as evidenced by a video of the two pups from when Howard was fostering Winnie (though it looks like Foxy is still warming up to Winnie). With such an unexpected but perfectly-timed reunion for Howard and Winnie, I hope there are many more playdates for Winnie and Howard’s longtime pup in the future. You’ve gotta love it when a chance encounter leads to all the happy tears.

Sterling K. Brown says his teachers told him to stop lifting weights

Not everyone endorsed Sterling K. Brown‘s exercise routine in grad school.

“My teachers told me to stop lifting weights,” the “This Is Us” star told Men’s Health of his NYU professors. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And they were like, ‘It’s gonna be hard for things to pass through you with all this musculature. So for emotion, for feelings to flow through, you have to be a vessel, a sieve, rather than something that is heavily armored.’”

Brown, who then looked to cardio and yoga, now regularly incorporates calisthenics and basketball into his workouts — and he’s now ripped.

“There’s a wider breadth of who you can be onstage than was allowed on the camera,” the 43-year-old actor explained. “Denzel Washington, Sam Jackson, Delroy Lindo, Don Cheadle — all these dudes come from theater, and they weren’t jacked-up, crazy-looking dudes.”

Though Brown has enjoyed immense professional success, the “Frozen II” star has other goals in mind, specifically, maintaining a balanced regimen and diet to reach 100 years of age.

“I just don’t want to give in to the statistical analysis that says that is my fate,” he says. “So I try to do things as proactively as possible to ensure that I’m around to see my children’s children and be of value to them when they come into the world. There’s so much to live for, and I don’t want to sell myself short by thinking I don’t have a right to longevity and vitality any more or less than anyone else.”

Meghan Markle Is Wearing Her 2017 Engagement Dress for a Special Outing with Prince Harry!

Meghan Markle has pulled a very special dress out of her closet!

After the Duchess of Sussex recycled many of her previously worn outfits during her recent tour of Africa with Prince Harry, she stepped out on Tuesday for the WellChild Awards wearing a forest green dress with a bow detail around the waist by P.A.R.O.S.H. The ensemble is certainly familiar to royal fans — it’s the same one Meghan wore in November 2017 after the couple announced their engagement for a photo call and joint interview.

Meghan, 38, even styled the look similarly to nearly two wears ago — she covered her shoulders in a long wool coat and wore her hair in the same loose waves.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

It was all about green for the royals on Tuesday. Kate Middleton and Prince William wrapped up the first full day of their royal visit to Pakistan at a special reception in their honor. Kate glittered in a sparkling deep emerald column gown by Jenny Packham and earrings by Onitaa, sourced from Pakistan, while William cut a dashing figure in a traditional green sherwani — a long coat-like garment — by Pakistani designer Naushemian. (Kate was predicted to wear green during the royal tour as it represents the green flag of Pakistan.)

And earlier in the day, Kate wore an emerald green tunic by Catherine Walker over cream pants from Pakistani designer Maheen Khan for a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. She accessorized her look with a printed green scarf by Satrangi and earrings by Pakistani jewelry designer Zeen (her new go-to!).

Kate Middleton

The annual WellChild Awards, one of the annual highlights of the couple’s calendar, honors gravely ill children and their caregivers, and is one of the couple’s most emotional events of the year. They celebrate the inspiring qualities of some of the U.K.’s seriously ill young people and the dedication of those who go the extra mile to keep children healthy and happy, including the outstanding health, social care and education professionals.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

The royal couple, who are parents to 5-month-old son Archie, attended a pre-ceremony reception where they met the young winners of each award category and their families, and the nominated healthcare professionals.

They shared a touching moment with a young girl who wore a tiara for the special occasion.

Harry, 35, has been patron of WellChild since 2007, and Meghan attended the awards for the first time last year. WellChild was also one of the four charities chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to benefit from the generous donations made by the public on the occasion of the birth of their son.

Teyana Taylor’s Husband Iman Shumpert Caught on a Date With Another Girl – Cheating?

The NBA star is allegedly pictured during a double date with his brother and two exotical girls at Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles, but his wife might not be upset about it.

AceShowbizIman Shumpert has been accused of cheating on Teyana Taylor. The professional basketball player was recently caught with a girl who was not his wife during what was called a double date with his brother and two exotical girls.

The 29-year-old athlete, his rumored side chick, as well as his brother and his brother’s girlfriend reportedly visited Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles this past weekend. Posting pictures of the foursome’s outing, a blog noted that this might not be an issue for Iman’s wife. “Not that teyana cares or anything,” the blog wrote along with the photos, adding that the couple may have an “open marriage.”

Iman Shumpert is accused of cheating on Teyana Taylor.

While it has not been confirmed if Iman indeed went on a double date with another girl that night, Teyana has previously opened up about engaging in threesomes with Iman. During a recent visit to Hot 97, she admitted to have occasionally welcomed other women into their bedroom.

“I think that’s the mix up. People [think] like everyday we taking down b***hes down,” she set things straight. “That’s not that. It be those times…like when we on vacation, our anniversary, like certain times [only].”

Back in 2016, the pair who have been married since October 2016, were also hit with cheating allegations. Assuring that they’re still together despite the rumors, Iman posted on Instagram at the time, “I was young. I was selfish. I’ve broken hearts and been insensitive to them. I never really cared what the Internet said of me until now and it’s not because they’re antagonizing me…they are now directing hate toward a woman that gives off nothing but positive energy and deserves nothing more than the world that I vow to give her.”

He continued, “I normally wouldn’t acknowledge this type of thing but you guys win. If you’re going to send the hate, direct it at me. Don’t make her pay for my mistakes. I’m older now, I’m different now. It’s Peace and love. Don’t make her pay for the mistakes of my past.”

“It ain’t no breaking up. Junie’s gonna grow up with both her parents and siblings,” the Houston Rockets player said of their daughter in another post. “The bitterness will get you no where. Just spread love.”

Teyana and Iman welcomed their daughter in 2015.

Antoni Porowski Was More Comfortable with His Body When He Dated Women

Antoni Porowski is opening up about his body image in a revealing interview with Glamour UK.

The 35-year-old Queer Eye star also chatted with the outlet about his sexuality and how he has dated women in the past.

“I think part of me, if I’m fully honest, always knew that I was interested in guys. But at the same time, I had relationships with women where I was really happy and I was actually in love with women. It was one of those situations where, ‘When I find the right one, I’m gonna know it’s time,’” Antoni said.

Antoni says that he felt more comfortable with his body when he dated women as he compares his body to the men he is with.

“I think I was most comfortable with my body when I was in relationships with women, because there wasn’t a sense of comparison, we were different… It was my first relationship with a guy where I kind of looked at myself, and I was like, ‘Oh, my biceps aren’t as big as his,’ or ‘my legs are longer, I wish my torso were longer,’” Antoni said. “I have days where I wake up and I feel like human garbage, and then I have days where I’m feeling really good about myself.”

Khloe Kardashian Says She ‘Forgives’ Tristan Thompson For Cheating: ‘We All Make Mistakes’

Khloe Kardashian opened up about her headline-making infidelity situation with ex Tristan Thompson and admitted she’s not holding his actions against him any longer.

Khloe Kardashian, 35, is letting go of any grudges she’s been holding against ex Tristan Thompson, 28, after he publicly cheated on her multiple times. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who broke up with the professional basketball player in Feb., shared how she’s grown from the tough situation in a new interview on an episode of Jay Shetty‘s podcast, On Purpose, and even admitted to moving on from the anger she once had.

“I don’t think he’s a bad person; I think we all make mistakes, we are humans,” she said in the interview. “But it’s only going to hurt me if I’m holding onto this anger and playing this victim role. I don’t believe in being a victim. I believe in ‘Okay this happened to me, let’s figure it out, let’s push through it,’ and maybe if I am open and honest about it, it can help other people feel like, ‘It’s okay, we are all human, we are all going to get through things.’”

“But you can’t just condemn somebody for sinning differently than you did,” she continued. “I feel like we are all so quick to just exile people and it’s just so heavy to me. Something I’m just focusing on is making sure I am healed from that, or as much as I can, and try to understand it as much as I can. And then don’t distract myself. I try to have a lot of me time in the mornings, and that is where I kind of filter through that.”

Khloe went on to explain that although things were certainly tough when she found out ex family friend Jordyn Woods, 22, shared a kiss with Tristan, she didn’t want to feel too sorry for herself. “It is natural to almost be the victim,” she said. “Especially when you are on this platform and the whole world is like, ‘Oh I feel so bad for you.’ It’s like ‘Okay thank you, but this has also happened I’m sure to like hundreds of people before.’ Not saying that it’s right, I’m just saying I’m not going to die. We’re all fine.”

Despite no longer being romantically involved with Tristan, Khloe made sure to state that one of the most important things she wants to do is keep him in their one-year-old daughter True‘s life. “He never hurt True. Him and I have our own relationship and Tristan and True have theirs,” she explained. “I will never come between that, I don’t believe in that. I attest that to my parents, were incredible co-parenters from what I know. I’m sure they fought all the time, but not around us. My sister Kourtney [Kardashian] and Scott [Disick], they are incredible co-parents. If it’s not hindering or hurting you in anyway, then it’s important to work on all relationships.”

As far as what’s next for Khloe? She’s putting romance on the back burner for now as she keeps her focus on self care and of course, her lovely baby girl. “I haven’t jumped into dating, I don’t care to date right now. I’m not in a rush for it, I feel so good in my life, and I don’t really need much else,” she happily said. “Something that I’m focusing on is just making sure I process everything. I think, especially in my family, we are good at moving on. We have very big, forgiving hearts, we just move on, but we don’t really talk about things that happened. I don’t really know if that’s healthy or not.”

Jeremy Renner’s Ex-Wife Claims He Threatened to Kill Her — He Responds

Jeremy Renner’s custody battle with his ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco, over their 6-year-old daughter, Ava, has escalated. In new court documents, Pacheco claims that the Avengers star talked about killing her and put a gun in his mouth that same night, according to TMZ.

In documents obtained by the site, Pacheco, 28, alleges that Renner, 48, was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol at a club in November when he told someone that he “could not deal with [Pacheco] anymore” and “just wanted her gone.”

Later that night, the Hawkeye star put a gun in his mouth and threatened to kill himself before firing the gun into the ceiling while Ava was asleep, according to the documents. A nanny overheard him say that he was going to kill Pacheco and then himself because “it was better that Ava had no parents than to have [Sonni] as a mother,” the Canadian model attests.

Pacheco also claims in the documents that Renner has a history of substance abuse and of verbal and emotional abuse. She alleges that he once left cocaine on a bathroom counter where Ava could reach it.

A rep for the actor responded to the claims, telling Us Weekly, “The well-being of his daughter Ava has always been and continues to be the primary focus for Jeremy. This is a matter for the court to decide. It’s important to note the dramatizations made in Sonni’s declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind.”

Us confirmed last month that Pacheco is seeking sole custody of Ava with Renner receiving monitored visitation. The Wingman actress filed her request with the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, on September 10. At the time, a court hearing was scheduled for November 7.

Pacheco filed for divorce from Renner in December 2014 following 10 months of marriage. They finalized their divorce that December. TMZ reported at the time that the Tag star agreed to pay $13,000 per month for child support and an additional five percent if he makes more than $2.3 million per year.
