Not going to lie: I'm writing this right now with a puppy on my lap.
Don't ask about the logistics. I'm balancing my laptop in a very precarious position, but I'm doing it for you.
And since I'm having a real-life cuddle sesh, I thought I'd give you a virtual one.
The 19 pictures below of animals will make you have the same reaction as the girl in this scene from Love Actually:These 19 adorable pictures of pets and animals are just for you and will make you go "Aww!" You're welcome.
via: RedditThis gorgeous pup seems a little overwhelmed in the snow for the first time. His eyes say, "I love this, but it's also a lot."
via: RedditLook at that face! Ironically, this is the same face that I make when I fart. You heard it here first, folks.
via: RedditCorgis are the kings of the Internet. Or should I say, the queens? You know, since the Queen of England owned a bunch of corgis?
via: RedditThis baby porcupine looks soft and fuzzy enough to hug, and that's just what I'd do if I were around it. The next animal is wearing an outfit, and you won't be able to deal.
Charlie the goat
via: RedditI love his outfit. I love his face. I love everything about this picture.
The whole crew
via: RedditWho are you in this group of friends? I am definitely that little hamster sitting on the nose of the golden retriever.
via: Reddit"Please sir, may I have some more garbage? I just love eating trash ever so much!"
via: RedditLook at this happy, beautiful couple! They're going to have the most adorable puppies.
via: RedditThat is quite the seductive pose, my friend. The next one is just so sweet.
Oh, hello there
via: RedditIt's very nice to tweet you! I mean, meet you. It's very nice to meet you.
via: RedditThis is an adorably mismatched pair and I would 100 percent watch a show about them. I would love to be hired to write the theme song.
via: RedditThis pup has a pretty worried expression on his face. It's pretty much what I look like any time anyone tries to make me go out in nature.
via: RedditThis is the most majestic overweight animal I have ever seen in my life. And I would have paid good money to see him try and get down off of that stool.
via: RedditThis photo makes me believe that turtles are ticklish. It's too cute. The next one is a dog in goggles.
via: RedditOK, this dog has life totally figured out. He's the coolest cat I've ever seen, and he's not even a cat. He's a dog!
via: RedditThe pure joy that I get from seeing a grown dog play with a teeny tiny baby kitten might only be matched on my wedding day. Maybe.
via: RedditThis adorable rabbit feels protected and powerful when it's hiding in its shark bed. I love this so much.
via: RedditOK, this is too much. I know that its head probably naturally fell into that position, but the sloth looks like he's listening to her heart and it's perfect.
via: RedditLook at the smile on that proud mama! She gave birth to ten beautiful St. Bernard/Great Pyrenees puppies. Share this with someone who could use some cute animal pics!
