20 Photos Proving Dogs Are a Gift From Heaven

Having a dog means you’ll never be a couch potato. They encourage us to socialize and spend more time outdoors, even if the weather is poor and all you want is to lie down. They’re also your best workout buddies, and as a dog owner, you’ll find yourself using different types of muscles for chasing, pulling, and holding your pet. And, without a doubt, you’ll be exercising your facial muscles a lot because those furry balls of love give us many reasons to smile.

We at Bright Side invite you to look at these pawesome pictures that will remind you that love comes in all shapes and sizes — and with a fluffy tail.
