Happy National Dog Day, everybody! Isn’t it great that we live in a world where nothing terrible happens and we can all just appreciate cute animals? I have gathered some images of especially delightful dogs to share with you all on this beautiful day where nothing bad has happened, no siree:
Xenophilius is jubilant. He loves nothing more than to frolic through the meadows and let the wind whip against his smiling face.
Charlemagne has not a single self-conscious bone in his body. He is his truest self 24/7, no matter what the haters say.

Harry, Liam, Niall and Louis are enjoying their childhood but have just realized that they’ve never seen a brown corgi at the dog park.
Cleopatra just read some Facebook posts from her religious relatives and is considering a nap.
Agamemnon’s family fails to respect his vegetarian lifestyle.
Persephone is on her way to her job in an Amazon warehouse two weeks after birthing a litter of puppies.
Cornelius just saw pictures of the Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume.
Desdemona’s dad is on the other side of the room talking about how if that cameraman had been carrying a gun everything would have been fine.
