Dogs have always been man’s best friend, which explains why the internet sites love them so much. Wait…that’s kittens! We have full websites dedicated to cats and their antics, but not as much appreciation is shown for our incredible love of dogs.

So I dug through hundreds of dog photos to find the most inspiring and uplifting ones to share with you today in hopes that you will smile at these heartwarming animals we adore so much.

All photos are from the Flickr site and all photos are linked to original photographers. Enjoy!
