In what has to be the feel good story of the year (okay, I know it’s only been a week so far, but I have a feeling this one will be remembered for a long time) — Anthony Lyons, a young teenager with cancer, isn’t allowed see his dogs while he’s undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, so a family friend came up with the idea to create a “Photo Doggies For Anthony” Facebook page for well-wishers to send in funny dog pictures to brighten his day.

Well, it didn’t take long for the doggie photos to come pouring in from all over the world, as the FB page went viral, and now over 500k doggie pics have been submitted for Anthony and all of us to enjoy! (USA Today)
