18 Heart-Melting Photos That Could Illustrate Love in a Picture Dictionary

The heroes of our article know this simple truth: love is a boomerang that comes right back to you once thrown. The thankful eyes of a dog that you’ve just adopted, a cat that comes to kiss you the moment you wake up, or a precious “gift” from your neighbor’s dog who knows you need support. Love comes in all shapes, and be sure, you’ll notice it around you if your heart is open.

We had an urge to hug our loved ones the moment we saw these pics here at Bright Side, and we hope they’ll touch your hearts too!

1. Find someone who hugs you like this doggo hugs his human.

2. “My neighbor fostered a pregnant kitty... Here’s momma protecting her kittens who were born last night.”

6. “My cat learned that the alarm sound means I wake up, and she snuggles on my chest right afterward.”

8. “My cat loves to sleep like this and it’s undeniably the cutest thing I’ve ever experienced.”
