We really should spend more time pondering what good we could have done in our past lives to deserve the privilege of coexisting with dogs. They're fluffy, snuggly, cute, loyal, enthusiastic, emotionally intelligent, etc. They're just perfect creatures and they're too damn good for this world.
...And the most recent viral dog video only continues to prove that point.
Twitter user Katie decided to make everyone's day by tweeting a photo her parents sent her from their trip to Disneyland. AND YOUR EYES DON'T DECEIVE YOU — THAT IS A DOG PATIENTLY WAITING TO GET HIS CARICATURE PORTRAIT DRAWN.
MY PARENTS ARE AT DISNEYLAND AND JUST SENT ME THIS pic.twitter.com/s0XdI4GQFf— cutie chaser (@cutiechaser_) October 14, 2016
The 26-year-old's photo has been retweeted 53,000 times in less than four days.
JUST LOOK AT THAT FACE.
Katie's parents have Disneyland passes, "so they go a lot and send me pics," she told BuzzFeed News.
As if we needed another reason to get Disneyland passes now.
Twitter could barely handle the cuteness of the whole thing.
There is some good in this world after all.
He was just sitting there so nicely!
One commenter even shared an adorable conversation in which she sent a friend the photo.
We didn't even notice the surfboard until now and this impossibly cute picture just got cuter.
As it turns out, this charming pup is a service-dog-in-training named Yahoo who resides with his volunteer trainer in San Marcos, California. His Disney trip was part of his basic obedience and socialization training before he moves on to professional training.
Yes, as if the pupper wasn't already the purest creature on Earth, he's also a part of Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit organization that coordinates the training of service dogs who are given to people with disabilities for no cost.
He and a friend (who's also in training) got to take in all the joys of Disneyland while practicing navigating "high levels of distractions."
"This type of socialization gives them the confidence to go to such places with their graduate partners in the future," Yahoo’s volunteer told BuzzFeed News.
By February of 2017, Yahoo will be trained to "open a door, turn on a light switch, [and] pull a wheelchair."
Let's just take a moment to look at this photo of Yahoo and his completed drawing:
How could you have a bad day after seeing that? (h/t buzzfeed)
