I feel like I'm a fairly content person in life, but every time I see pictures of puppies and kids, I'm immediately diagnosed with a dog and baby fever. There is something so sweet and innocent about the combination of puppies and kids that it makes me want to live on a farm so I can have a whole mess of both running around. But more than that, it's just total unconditional love between the two.
I think even if you're not much of a dog person (PS. What's wrong with you? Have you seen a doctor?), you can agree that dogs are some of the most loving creatures in the world. And puppies? Well they are just a bundle of love, energy, and happiness with four legs. They follow you wherever you go, they want to be up against you for snuggles in any way possible, and they will love and protect you so fiercely. This animal is known for its unconditional love, for trusting its family more than you'll ever know, and for being a great companion. Is there any better buddy for a kid than a puppy? The bond the two will have is second only to the best playmate either one of them could ask for.
Which is exactly why you should celebrate National Puppy Day with these 21 impossibly cute photos of puppies and kids. Warning: You're totally going to want to take all of them home.
