Sometimes the internet is a terrible place, but every once and awhile it's a beacon of hope that shines through clouds of perfection. And those times should be celebrated. Especially when they are as good as this. This week the internet gave us one of the greatest gifts it has given us yet. That gift: the coyote vest.
Have you seen the coyote vest yet? If not, you are in for a treat. You won't believe your eyes, it's that good. It's as if 2018 looked around and said, "wow it's been a rough year for everyone, how about a little pick me up?" And honestly, we deserve it.
If you have already seen the coyote vest, who cares, this article is full of even more photos of dogs wearing the coyote vest so you should read it anyway. You can never, ever see too many photos of animals in the coyote vest because the coyote vest is the best thing in the world, probably.
This might be the best tweet ever.

But the question on everyone's mind was: what exactly IS a coyote vest?
@Drrramina Is the coyote supposed laugh so hard it becomes incapacitated and unable to attack?— Lee Potts 📖 (@Lee Potts 📖)1543956040.0
It turns out the vest is a really smart idea.
via: ShutterstockCoyotes have become much more common in the United States. Once animals that roamed the West in the mountains and deserts, coyotes have moved further east and thrive living in urban areas. Every major city in the US is now home to coyotes, whether you have seen them or not.
Coyote attacks on cats and small dogs are unfortunately pretty common.
via: ShutterstockA single coyote can take down a small deer, so a family pet isn't much of a match for a hungry coyote. And sadly, many people in the US lose their pets to coyote attacks every year.
That's why a company called Coyote Vest invented a vest that can protect your pet from a coyote attack.The founders of the company lost their small dog to a coyote attack and decided to develop a product that would stop future attacks.
Here's how the vest works:
The vest is made of Kevlar, so coyotes can't bite through the vest if they try to grab your pet with their mouth.
The vest has optional whiskers that velcro to the back.
The vest can also protect small animals from hawks.
via: ShutterstockOne version of the vest has an even thicker Kevlar strip on the back to stop hawks from using their sharp talons to pick up small animals.
The vests are a little pricey.
But it does give you peace of mind.Let your little pup run free!
Oh, and the best part?The vest were originally made for dogs, but that doesn't mean only dogs are rocking the look.
Cats look great in it.

Even baby goats can wear them!
Many people pointed out that this was also a good idea to stop larger dogs from attacking smaller dogs.

Some people even shared scary experiences they'd had with coyotes.
