My God is that right!!! After my brain injury I couldn’t work or do anything anymore. My puppy kept me perfectly happy and sane though!

“I’m sorry to hear you aren’t feeling better… Where’s the puppy?”
“You didn’t want me to swallow it? That’s why I’m not feeling so good!”

Puppies are awe-inspiring. You can’t look at them and not go “Awwww….”
