We could stare at these fluffballs forever, not just on National Puppy Day.

With more and more holidays seemingly created every day, we’ve found that it’s become basically impossible to celebrate them all. Just next week, for example, is National Nougat Day, National World Whiskey Day, National Black Forest Cake Day, National Chiffon Cake Day, National Turkey Neck Soup Day, and National Oysters On the Half Shell Day. If we acknowledged every one, we’d be cooking all week!  But if there’s one holiday we will always participate in, it’s National Puppy Day—which is Friday, March 23. Puppies cheer us up when we’re down, encourage us to get outdoors and play, and provide a constant source of joy and entertainment. (Okay, so they can also be quite frustrating before they’re potty-trained. But that’s not what today’s about).

Because we can’t all adopt a puppy today, we rounded up some of our favorite puppy photos on Instagram for National Puppy Day. So sit back, relax, and prepare for cuteness overload. 

All I need is the weekend. And this stick. 😜😜😜
