It's been four years and four litters since the Internet discovered that watching lumpy, wiggly mounds of fluff could be the most engrossing and blood-pressure-reducing activity known to man, and it's a thrill to say hello to the latest group of Shiba Inu puppies from San Francisco.

This litter, named the D-Team, consists of five puppies: boys Dalichi and Dango, which means dumpling (could this get any cuter?), and girls Dosha, Daisuki and Dakota (the only one in the litter with a cream-colored coat).

What's the most frightening creature you can think of? Marvin Cruz, a burly, 47-year-old man with tattoos and a shaved head, can't think of anything worse than being in the same room as a puppy.

In the new movie 50/50, actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogan put a funny spin on cancer – with help from a furry friend.

"What, does he have a medical license?" he says, staring blankly at the doe-eyed pooch who looks like he just wants a hug.
