We've said it before and we'll say it again: We love our jobs.
But in order to keep them, we have to bring you things like this video of adorable puppies playing with toys in the PEOPLE studio.
The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Mallory, a 3-year-old Lab mix who has been with the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey, for more than one year.
Even though it's only temporary, Mallory is making the most of her loving foster home before she finds that place to spend forever. "She has playful bursts of energy and likes to play tug of war and chase after balls," says foster mom Tammi Green-Strelkoff. "When she's finished playing, she'll curl up next to you or find a cozy spot next to you and just hang out for some quiet time."

When Sunny, a 1-year-old Pomeranian, ran out of his Chicago backyard and into an alley, the pup's owner tried to chase after him, but the dog scampered away too fast. She caught up just in time to see a woman escaping with Sunny under her arm.

Lovely, sweet and kind are just some of the adjectives friends have used to describe the incomparable Robin Williams. And, if they could find the words, it's likely his furry friends would describe the late actor in much the same way.
Williams's Instagram feed is filled with adorable shots of him kicking back with many an animal friend, including his road dog Verna Pearl (above), whose unexpected passing last year left him deeply saddened.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Muffin and Scruffy, a bonded pair of pups who were given up after a divorce.
These purebred Jack Russell terriers arrived at the Potter League for Animals of Middletown, Rhode Island, at the beginning of August. In their previous home, they were left alone for long periods of time, which made them extremely close. They're totally best friends, but definitely in need of a little human TLC.

It was a road less traveled by Jeff Kopp and his dog, Bobby.
But something inspired the pooch to take a different route down Marion Road on Monday in Diamond Lake, Michigan, and it's a good thing that Kopp obliged.
The dog pulled his owner to a satellite dish just three feet away from the dirt road where a newborn baby had been left.
"I saw what [looked like] a rabbit at first," Kopp told WOOD TV8. "Then it moved. That's when I started yelling."
The hours-old baby girl, whose umbilical cord was still attached, was lying in the fetal position with leaves on her face, according to Kopp's daughter Cathleen Neal, who ran to her father's aid along with his wife.

We love babies. We love puppies. Put the two together, and we're talking about a level of perfection we once reserved solely for conversations about Ryan Gosling and well-dressed kangaroos.
