Being a good dad can be hard work – sometimes, they've got to be soft as pillows, and other times, they have to be tough as nails. This list is to celebrate some of the best examples of fatherhood that we've ever seen on the internet – through thick or thin, they'll be there for their kids!

If you have a picture of an awesome dad at his best, we'd be proud to have him included in this list – just add him below! And don't forget to upvote your favorite examples of fatherhood as well!
