They’re good dogs and they deserve good pats.

It doesn’t get snugglier than this.

This is Harlow, a large dog who lives with two smol dogs.

Specifically, he is a Weimaraner, and his two buddies are dachshunds.

Apparently (and adorably), Harlow doesn't like going to sleep without his snuggle buddies.

I mean, same.

So it's a good thing this bed is big enough to fit all three of them.

Ya need room for all those cuddles, you know?

Sure, sometimes his friends wake him up a little too early...

But there's honestly nothing better than a triple puppy cuddle before bed, ya know?

Instagram: @harlowandsage

Everyone knows that snuggling is the best form of bonding...

Which means these guys are definitely pup pals for life.

It is my great displeasure to inform you that snails have teeth.

Yes, the animal that looks like a shell sneezed boogers all over itself has actual teeth! Like a shark or a human. TEETH.

And their teeth are hard!!! Some of the hardest organic material on Earth, according to some very patient scientists.

Their teeth are arranged in rows along a "radula," which is sort of like a tongue.

If it’s too cold for you, its too cold for them.

Your pets, you love them.

And in the winter months, it's easy to think that they're having a great ol' time outdoors.

I mean, look at these cats, right?

But the truth is, dogs and cats shouldn't be left outside in the cold for long periods, AT ALL.

The cold affects pets much in the same way it affects people, explained Cathy Meeks, an internist with Blue Pearl Veterinary Clinic in Tampa, Florida.

"A common misconception is that because of their fur they can tolerate colder temperatures," she told BuzzFeed. In reality, Meeks said, you should think of a dog or cat's fur as about as warm as a light...

“We as humans are connected to animals through our origins. If we don’t value them, we might lose them, and lose part of ourselves in the process.”

Tim Flach is a world-renowned photographer who's been in the field for decades. For several years a lot of his work has centered around animals, and as his photography has taken him to various places around the globe, he's seen a need to focus on species that are under threat. The result of this body of work is a book titled Endangered.

2017 was a time to feel HIP.

Everyone knows 2017 has been, um... How do I put this? QUITE THE YEAR. But it hasn't been ALL bad. Sassy, gassy, classy social media sensation Fiona the Hippo has been the one thing that has united us ALL, and reminded us that there is SOME good left in the world.

Like when she was basically every person who is single when she photobombed this couple's engagement photo...

Instagram: @hayley_roll

...and when she gave cute kisses through the glass to this young visitor to the Cincinnati Zoo.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When someone photoshopped her to be the Time Person of the Year...and we actually kind of wished that it were true.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she made sassy side-eye look this cute.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when we caught her checking herself out in the mirror (but TBH, who could blame her?!).

We’ll love them no matter what.
