Today is one of the greatest days of the year — National Puppy Day. Far superior to National Boyfriend Day, National Puppy Day celebrates the small, furry companions that would never betray, cheat on or leave us. In fact, I don't think it's a far stretch to argue that puppies are better than people. Puppies, pure and precious, are the universe's way to apologize for all the bad in the world. In our hearts, every day is National Puppy Day, but today is extra special. So, without further ado, here are eleven adorable gifs of puppies to celebrate what is, arguably, the best national holiday.
