If only humans could match the levels of joy shown in these canines.

A happy pet is a happy owner and the photographers behind all of these amazingly cheerful pictures must be ecstatic 24/7.

Just owning a pet can actually improve your health, according to a study reported by Livescience:

"We observed evidence that pet owners fared better, both in terms of well-being outcomes and individual differences, than nonowners on several dimensions,” study researcher Allen McConnell, of Miami University in Ohio, said in a statement. “Specifically, pet owners had greater self-esteem, were more physically fit, tended to be less lonely, were more conscientious, were more extroverted, tended to be less fearful and tended to be less preoccupied than nonowners.”

That must be why more and more people are choosing to own pets, or maybe it is because they are so darn cute. Nothing helps a bad day more than sharing some time with the family pet.

Channel the positive energy from these canines and enjoy the rest of your day.
