We’re only 5 months into 2020, and it’s already enough. But when it feels that there’s too much to process and your brain, aka hard disk, is about to go into overdrive, we got something to cheer u up. Because if there’s anything that can save the world, it must be dogs.

Bored Panda has compiled a much-needed list of our favorite little creatures, from hilarious bamboozlers to shamelessly funny doggos. The truth is, dog logic in action is so absurd it’s priceless. So scroll down, upvote your faves, and share with friends who need a boost of fun. You may wanna save the link for later too, 'cause rumor has it that dog pics are a bandage for the soul.

We also spoke to Kimberly Freeman, the founder of City Dog Expert and a professional dog trainer, about things we can learn from our four-legged friends to get through these hard times. Scroll down for the full interview below.

Kimberly Freeman said that the coronavirus pandemic has been rough for many of us, but we can learn from our dogs how to live in the moment and to be excited about the small things.

The professional dog trainer suggested “To look out of the window and admire the beauty around us (or the neighbor's cat). To be excited when the postman delivers something new (especially a new purchase). To relax and be content with our own company and the company of those around us.”

Most importantly, we can see how dogs let go and do not hold anger or resentment. Our four-legged friends teach us “to forgive when you truly are sorry (just like that time you accidentally stood on your pup’s tail).”

Kimberly believes that “as a pet owner in charge of another living being, we also learn to let go and go with the flow a lot more.” The pro dog trainer doesn’t say it’s always easy, though. “Shit happens (literally) and no matter how well-behaved our dogs are, we cannot control every element of their actions.”

But remember that “sometimes the most surprising things our dogs do bring us the most unexpected joy.” Kimberly gave an example of “non-dog owners having no idea how hysterical a dog snore or a snaggle tooth can be.”

At the end of the day, having a furry companion next to you could bring some peacefulness to your life. “It’s scientifically proven that dogs relax us and bring down blood pressure and elevated stress rates of those they are around,” Kimberly told us.
