The delicious tale of Popeye, a famous rescue pup now living in food paradise.

Once you see these cat photobombs, you might switch from being a dog person to a cat person.



Popeye the pup is a furry 4-year-old living it up in Southern California.

But things weren’t always so bright and sunny for the little guy.

About three years ago, his human, Ivy Diep, spotted him wandering the streets alone — dirty, heavily matted, and skinny.

“He had just crossed a major street and I thought, ‘Oh, I hope that pup’s going to be okay,'” Diep wrote in an email. “I had returned home that day and was about to head out again when I saw him again across the street from my house.”

This is what Popeye looked like when Diep first found him on the street.

Concerned for his safety, Diep called out to him.

“He actually came to me!” she said. “Some dogs would bolt, but he didn’t.”

Diep loved Popeye but was hesitant to welcome him to the family at first. After all, she already had a house full of pets; she wasn’t looking for any more canine additions. But no one else would take him.

She decided it must be meant to be. And boy, was it a great decision.

Although Popeye can sometimes be “a loud barky monster to new people and dogs,” Diep said, now he fits right in.

“It wasn’t long before he made himself at home at my place with my other dogs,” Diep toldBored Panda. “And of course, my husband and I fell in love [with him, too].”

Popeye, like many dogs, loved being out and about. So Diep began bringing him on lunch dates and documenting the fun.
