As previously documented on many occasions, it doesn't get any cuter than kids and dogs.

Remember this baby laughing at this dog because he was eating popcorn? Or this puppy jumping up to cuddle with a napping (very) young man?

Both totally adorable for very different reasons, but perhaps neither can hold a cute candle to the following video.

It features a boy singing "You Are My Sunshine" to his sick Husky, lying right next to the poor canine and doing all he can to turn his health around.

We don't know what actually happened to the dog in question, but we're just gonna assume that his human's sweet song and sentiment helped him make a full recovery. Because any other alternative would totally ruin our day year.

Look, we never said ALL dogs were smart, okay?

Yes, some can help change a baby's diaper. And others can help bring in the groceries. While still others can unlock a window and make a daring escape into the sunshine.

But the canine featured in the following footage likely can't do any of these things.

He can make both his owners and anyone who watches this video laugh uncontrollably, however, as the adorable little guy stands on the deck and really wants to heed his master's pleas to come inside.

Only he can't. Because he thinks the door in front of him is closed. Only when someone comes over and PRETENDS to open this glass obstacle does the dog happily walk ahead.

Consider yourselves warned, THG readers:

The following photo gallery and subsequent video may cause an end to all productivity for you today.

That’s because they feature two female cheetahs who were born on September 1 at the San Diego Zoo, with that famous establishment announcing the news on Facebook and noting that each birth is "precious" because there are only 12,000 cheetahs left in the world.

These three-week olds are being hand-raised by the animal care staff because their mother couldn't raise her previous litter properly. They only weigh three pounds each at the moment.

But that isn't stopping the sisters from playing with each other and making us squeal in delight.

Cheetahs at Play
These two cheetahs were just born at the San Diego Zoo. We could watch this GIF all day long, couldn't you?

"Every baby's different, but these cheetahs really seem to be developing quickly in our eyes," says Eileen Neff, lead keeper of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. "They are great eaters, they started playing when they were just three or four days old. They could barely walk at that time, so it was pretty interesting seeing them tumbling around with each other."

Remember Draven Rodriguez?

The senior at at Schenectady High School in New York who posed for an AMAZING photo with his cat, Mr. Bugglesworth, and petitioned for it to count as his official portrait?

Sadly, his request got denied. But, heroically, the school’s principal, Diane Wilkinson, stepped in with an unexpected and truly inspired counter-offer: 

Would Rodriguez and Mrs. ​Bugglesworth want to pose with her and her chihuahua, Vivienne?

They could include their photograph in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and rescue animals such as Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne?

So, how did Rodriguez respond to this opportunity? How do you think?!? Check out the finished product here:

Say hello to Joplin.

This donkey was sick as a baby and, therefore, was raised indoors by Missouri natives Dawn and Chris Wegener.

Joplin grew very accustomed to the arrangement and has lived as a regular member of the family ever since, watching television at times, helping with chores and other times and, based on the adorable photos below, often irritating the dog as well.

Joplin can open doors all by himself; enjoys eating apples as a snack in the kitchen; and has learned enough by now to ignore Dr. Phil.

Don't believe us? Check out these pictures for proof!

Admiring Other Animals
What's the big deal? Nothing to see here! It's just a donkey living inside and watching some television.

Pretty amazing, huh?

Imagine it's a gorgeous sunny day.

You're owners have left you. You're home all alone. You can see sticks just waiting to be chewed and squirrels just waiting to be chased directly out the window.

So you consider your options and determine that the window is the best means of escape, although it's unclear just how you'll manage to do so after a couple of tries.

But you don't give up! You keep coming back and checking, playing around and prodding, until you successfully unlock that pesky apparatus and... you're free!

Such was the situation this dog found himself in, as his owners set up a secret camera to determine just how he kept escaping from their home. Watch and find out now:

Talk about persistence, huh? And, unlike another four-legged creature, this guy didn't even need the help of a cat to wrangle away. Well done, canine!

Isn't young love precious?

Okay, not so much when that young love involves Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez and whatever the heck keeps going on between those artists.

But when it centers on two puppies named Tuto and Juj? Who are featured in the video below, snuggling, hugging, kissing and clearly unable to get enough of each other?

Then, yeah. It doesn't get any more precious than that, as you can see here. (WARNING: You will want to watch this footage a minimum of 17 times.)

Earlier today, we also posted a video of puppies running through a field of grass, for one very simple reason:

In news that we're sure will shock absolutely no one: Taylor Swift is a cat lady. No, we're not making fun of Taylor's single status or many failed relationships. She actually, literally loves cats.

Her fans are as familiar with Taylor's female companions - Meredith and Olivia Benson - as they are with the lyrics of her songs.

Taylor Swift and Olivia Benson
Taylor and the newest addition to her cat family. Olivia is named for Mariska Hargitay's character on Law & Order: SVU.

Swifty's pets are perfect, as they fit right in with our image of TayTay spending her weekends baking cookies, doing some light gardening, and then settling in for a Law & Order marathon on TNT (Olivia is named after Mariska Hargitay's character on SVU).

Taylor's love of cats is so well known that she even poked fun at it in a video she shot for American Country Music Awards. (Remember when she was a country singer?!)

Recently, however, Taylor has come under fire from cat advocates (cat-vocates?) for toting her docile kitties around Manhattan.

As previously documented, it takes very little to make a dog happy.

Just give one of these creatures a fountain, some freedom and a bit of water and watch them go.

It's a lesson most human beings would do well to heed: appreciate the small things in life. Take time to just enjoy yourself. Be happy with whatever is in front of you.

Along those lines of life lessons and small things, we now present... PUPPIES!!! Or, to be more adorable and specific: PUPPIES PLAYING IN THE GRASS!

Watch this video and just try not to smile, folks:

Earlier this week, we profiled 13 dogs who may actually be something or someone else, such as one canine who looks EXACTLY like Harrison Ford.

And now we're here to talk about 13 more dogs who would readily admit that they are, in fact, dogs. But they'd also argue that they are total and complete thugs.

Look at them pounce. Watch them stalk. See them come across as all cute and warm and fuzzy until you put your finger too close to their mouth or dare to go near their property and then... BAM! BITE! ATTACK!

Or at least put on an adorable cute face.

You think you're living the thug life, Chris Brown? Okay, you are. But make room for this totally tough pets as well:

Thug life!
Pug life? More like pug life, are we right?!?
