As fictional author Kozma Prutkov once said, “If you want to be happy, be so.”
Dogs are living proof that this philosophy is more fact than fiction. For dogs, happiness can come in many forms. Something as simple as playing fetch with their owner or chowing down on a bone can bring a big ol’ doggy smile to any pooch’s face. Happiness is just a state of being for our favorite four-legged friends.
These 23 pups are living their best lives, and they’re not afraid to show it!
