Dog ‘bride’ in ‘Most Expensive Pet Wedding’ dies at 13


NEW YORK (AP) — A little dog known for her role in a fundraiser deemed the world’s priciest pet wedding has died.

Animal advocate Wendy Diamond announced Wednesday that Baby Hope Diamond died this week after a nine-month battle with congestive heart failure. She was 13.

The coton du tulear (koh-TOHN’ du too-lee-AHR’) participated in fundraisers for a host of charitable causes. She made it into Guinness World Records for playing the bride at “the Most Expensive Pet Wedding in History.”

The 2012 gala in New York City cost over $158,000 in donated luxury goods and raised over $110,000 for a critical care ward at the Humane Society of New York.

Wendy Diamond adopted Baby Hope after the death of her also-famous Maltese, named Lucky.

Couple get up-close view of moose that stares through window

MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire couple have gotten an up-close view of a moose that wandered into their yard, right up to their window.

The couple caught the moose’s surprise visit on video and posted it on YouTube, where it has received thousands of views since Tuesday morning. The video shows the moose nibbling leaves on a tree across the street outside the couple’s Merrimack home and then walking up to the home and standing inches away from the camera.

Resident Nichole DiVietro posted on Facebook it was her first time seeing a moose. She says she named the moose Mooshy, after her sister, Michelle, who recently died.
