If things have seemed a whole lot cuter around Studio 1A this year, it may have to do with a certain new furry friend.
However, Wrangler is a lot more than just a cute member of the TODAY family. TODAY's "puppy with a purpose" joined us in January, and our anchors, staff and an experienced dog handler teamed up with Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a New York nonprofit organization, to help train Wrangler to become a guide dog.
We've watched Wrangler grow up, one milestone at a time, in front of our very eyes.To celebrate Wrangler joining the TODAY family this year, take a look back at all of his highlights on the show.
