20 Pics of Babies and Puppies That Will Melt Your Heart

Happy National Puppy Day, one of our favorite holidays of all time!

Anyone who has ever owned a dog knows the endless joy they bring to your life. We didn’t need proof but, regardless, we have it: science shows that dogs can help people live longer, healthier lives. According to Science Magazine, interactions between dogs and their owners cause an increase in oxytocin, which helps lower blood pressure, fight depression and boost immunity. Particularly, when you and your dog stare into one another’s eyes.

If you have a dog, go pet it. If not, then check out these adorable photos of babies and puppies to get a serious emotional jolt (in a good way!). Feeling blue today? These adorable pics will melt those feelings right away and warm your heart. Bonus points if you can name the dog breeds featured below:

Baby and Puppy

Fat babies and puppies, oh my! The only thing cuter than a fat baby is a fat baby with an equally fat, rolly-polly puppy. We don’t know who we want to squeeze first (okay, the puppy, we admit it).

19.) Lean on MeBaby and Puppy

On National Puppy Day, we celebrate all puppies. Not all pups need to be young … even the seniors are still pups in our minds! We love the sweet smile on that baby as she cuddles with her best friend and we know this sweet senior will love having this babe in his life.
