Pope Francis spent some time meeting and greeting with a group of incredibly happy-looking dogs outside the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday.
One of the grinning dogs was held up behind the pope, resulting a pretty amazing photobomb, according to Metro.

Consider this proof that even the most powerful spiritual figures can’t resist the warm fuzzy feelings that come with spending a few minutes playing with a dog.
And this isn’t even the first time Pope Francis got to hang out with dogs this year. In June, he met with search and rescue dogs, according to ABC News:
