Platypups! Nope, that’s not a typo. It’s a mix between platypuses and dogs. But it’s no biological mishap. Rather, it’s something that happens when a doggo sticks its nose into a shoe.

People are posting photos of their very own platypups online and they’re going viral. And some of these canines really do look like they have a bill! Of course, platypups shouldn’t be confused with the more commonly known... platypups—what some people call tiny little platypuses. We collected some of the most adorable and funniest photos of platypups, so scroll down and prepare to go 'aww.' Don't forget to upvote your fave pics.

We know how much you love man’s best friends, so after you’re done looking through this post, check out Bored Panda’s article about the silliest photos where dogs show off their teeth, as well as about a dog who stopped its owner from flying to Wuhan by ripping up her passport.

It’s nothing new that canines love their owners’ shoes. Maybe sometimes even a bit too much. But have you ever wondered why? Well, there are three main reasons: the smell, the consistency, and the opportunity.

First of all, your shoes smell. Even if you don’t think that they do, your doggo has a very sensitive nose and it can pick up smells that people can’t register. So when your pal chews one of your shoes, it’s enjoying your smell directly. That’s how much it loves your smell. You could (and probably should) take it as a compliment.

Secondly, some shoes are made out of materials that are waaay too similar to chew-straps and jerky, according to Stuff. Shoes are chewy. Dogs love chewing stuff. It’s simple mathematics. And if you’ve got a puppy, well, it just doesn’t know better and will cut its teeth on pretty much anything. That’s where decent training comes into play.

Finally, if you don’t want your dog to chew your shoes or to stick its nose into them—You. Simply. Can’t. Leave. Them. Lying. Around.

Anything that your dog can reach, it’ll be curious about. If after a hard session at the gym you come back, kick off your shoes and just leave them on the ground, the chances are, your doggo will at least sniff them. So place your shoes somewhere higher up if you don’t want a platypup roaming around the house. Though they do make for some amusing photos...
