When Rob Micallef decided it was time to pop the question to girlfriend of four years Jessica Sammut, he enlisted the help of some very special (and very, very adorable) friends: 15 French bulldogs. PEOPLE has all of the exclusive photos of what we'd describe as the best follow-up ever to October's pug proposal.

Collaborating with the "A Frenchie in Brooklyn" Meetup group, Micallef planned his Saturday proposal around Frenchies because his now-fiancée is obsessed with the breed.

The couple, who lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., took an afternoon stroll through Fort Greene Park, where they crossed paths with group leader Tiffany Nakamura walking a Frenchie wearing a heart-shaped balloon. Micallef suggested they follow the dog because ... because why not?

Fighting like cats and dogs? Not for Ichimi and Ponzu!

Tabby kitten Ichimi and golden retriever Ponzu are proof that we can all just get along. After she was rejected by her mother, Ichimi was rescued by Twitter user Jessiepon, already a pet parent to Ponzu. The animal lover has since been capturing the pair's growing friendship on her Instagram account, which has amassed more than 95,000 followers.

So what's so special about these two? Their cuddliness, for one. Ichimi and Ponzu love dozing off on or near each other.

Tired of seeing cute dogs pop up on your Instagram feed? Yeah, we didn't think so.

Meet Jiff the Pomeranian. You may remember him from this past summer, when his video of amazing tricks went viral. A lot has happened since then – he's even taken his talent to the big screen – so we think it's about time we caught up with Jiff.

Here's our favorites, but if you need more (and you know you do!), follow @jiffpom on Instagram.

The Daily Treat: This Dog Is Twerking for a Cause

Originally posted 01/17/2014 02:30PM

Just when the world thought twerking and "Gangnam Style" had surpassed their saturation point, along comes Nathan.

This hairless pup – rocking a Miley Cyrus crop – is a resident at Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue in South Carolina, and is also the non-profit's top rump-shaker. To get a little extra warmth, Nathan has developed a cardio regimen of intense wiggling – and the Internet has taken notice.

The Daily Treat: Kitty Gives Baby Bath, Our Computer Explodes

Originally posted 01/15/2014 04:35PM

Bath time is never an easy time for parents – but not with Hoover the cat around.

This kitty isn't afraid to hop into 1-year-old Hazel's crib and lend a paw ... er, tongue. Just like Hoover would do to a kitten of his own, he lovingly cleans Hazel one lick at a time.

But before you watch, beware: The cuteness of this video could overload your computer or affect your ability to speak coherently at the office (For the record, we can't stop saying 'Aww!' and smiling).

The Daily Treat: Penguins Wearing Santa Suits – Best Christmas Gift Ever!

Originally posted 12/18/2013 01:45PM

We weren't really sure what we wanted for the holidays. We told our friends and loved ones to just cover a cat in wrapping paper and call it a day.

But now we know what we want – no, what we need – this year: Penguins. And they have to be dressed up like Santa.

The feathery (and festive!) fellas got into the spirit of the season at South Korea's Everland theme park. Each day until Christmas, visitors are greeted with a mini penguin parade, reports Reuters.

The Daily Treat: You Don't Need a Christmas Tree When You Have This Dog

Originally posted 12/06/2013 01:35PM

We're a week past Thanksgiving, so chances are by now, you've probably picked out your Christmas tree. Maybe even decorated it. But if you haven't, here's a festive new way to mark the occasion, complements of dog Scout.

See, Scout is no ordinary dog. Scout loves to balance things on his head, as seen on his Mom Jen Gillen's Instagram account or on his website, Stuff on Scout's Head.

The pit bull has had everything from a stack of DVDs to a wheel of brie placed atop his noggin, but we think this cluster of Christmas lights might be his best topper yet.

New parents, take note: This is how you get babies to sleep.

More so than any bassinet, what every parent should invest in is a pup like Baxter, the most baby-friendly dog that ever lived. In this amazingly cute Instagram video shared by photographer Gerrard Gethings, 8-week-old son Jarvis happily rests on Baxter's pulsing belly as they both lay in front of a warm, flickering fire.
