If you're ever in a bad mood, there's one thing that will bring almost everyone out of the mood.


I've seen people in tears because a pup licked their hand, and hold on if they pick the puppy up. Some people will actually lose their minds. Tears, giggles, laughter and all around happiness. I've seen people cross a street just for the off chance they will be able to interact with a dog.

According to Pets For Patriots.org, studies have shown that interactions with big dogs, little dogs, ANY dogs, releases the 'cuddle chemical'...or better known as oxytocin. The feeling you get when this is released is relaxation and trust, while losing stress and anxiety. Actually, research in the journal of Science reported that even looking into a dogs eyes will cause a spike of oxytocin.

To get the day started, some of us need coffee or soda to get rolling...there are others that will just watch dog videos. That's really all it takes.

WARNING: Not responsible for lost time because of puppy videos. WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK

  • Click the YouTube App
  • Type in puppies
  • Spend an ample amount of time watching puppies
  • Cue: Great Mood.
