And what's cuter than a canine?Well, it would have to be a tiny, baby puppy, right? The general rule when it comes to puppies is the smaller, the cuter.
And just when you thought you couldn't love dogs anymore?What about the fact that aside from being adorable and hilarious, they can also be trained to help humans out in many different areas of life.
Service dogs are probably the goodest boys out there.

Netflix has come to the rescue...Realizing that the process of becoming a service dog is something most of us don't know about - but absolutely want to - the streaming service has come up with a solution.
Pick of the Litter has to be the cutest documentary ever.

But these are no ordinary pups...In the show, we see them begin their quest to become "Guide Dogs for the Blind" - the ultimate canine career.
It's a lengthy process.Cameras follow these pups through a 2-year odyssey as they train to become dogs whose ultimate responsibility is to protect their blind partners from harm.
We also see them build real relationships."Along the way, the dogs meet a community of dedicated individuals who train them to do amazing, life-changing things in the service of their human."
But not every dog makes the cut..."The stakes are high and not every dog can make the cut. Only the best of the best. The pick of the litter."
Pick of the Litter is set in California.

Only two-thirds of the litter will go the distance.

But not to worry!The dogs who don't graduate will all go to loving families - and best believe, they'll be far better trained than your average dog.
And for the dogs that pass?

And these dogs are a hot commodity.Guide Dogs for the Blind claims to receive over one thousand applicants each year, many of whom have been waiting for years.
It's had a hugely positive reception...In a world where sadness is everywhere, it's nice to see a truly happy moment captured.
And let's face it...
