These two adorable Old English Sheepdogs live in a small village in the Netherlands. Their owner, Cees Bol (or dewollewei on Flickr), takes incredibly sweet photos of them against breathtakingly beautiful backdrops. "I like to take pictures - landscapes, nature, etc. - to show people what a great planet we live in," Cees says. "And what's greater than a sheepdog in these lovely places? They are both well-behaved and have real fun together." See more, here.

Ippo is an adorable half-zebra, half-donkey that was born in Italy this year. The rare crossbreed, known as a zonkey, is the offspring of a male zebra and female donkey. There are a variety of zebroids (a hybrid of zebra and any other member of the horse family) in the world, though Ippo's case is a rare one. In fact, she is the only zonkey in all of Italy.

Norm is the most personality-filled pug you'll ever come across. Seattle-based Jeremy Veach has been the proud owner of his four-legged friend, since the pup was just 8-weeks-old. Soon after Jeremy got him, he started taking photos of the photogenic dog, inspired by some canine favorites like Maddie the Coonhound, and began posting them on Instagram. See more, here.
Meet Trotter, the black pup with the crazy following on Instagram. Regularly receiving over 10,000 "likes" on his photos, Trotter is a celebrity thanks to her owner Sonya Yu who makes it her duty to snap Trotter in some wonderfully wacky outfits. Of course, it helps that the San Francisco Frenchie is both photogenic and obedient. As Yu said, "She is so patient! She will hold still, stay in the pose I put her in, and balance all of the props. Since she’s so obedient, it only takes a few frames to nail the shot." See more, here.
This year, 20-year-old Candice Sedighan was flown out by Yahoo! (the parent of Flickr) to New York City to be a part of a short interview about her incredibly sweet photography. Flickr posted that interview on their blog, sharing the behind-the-scenes story about the golden-haired subject that's in most of her shots. Like Jessica Trinh's photos, Sedighan's feature a very happy and photogenic golden retriever. Surrounded by bubbles, autumn leaves and butterflies, 10-year-old Champ seems to be truly living the good life. See more, here.
There is a deafening sound of "Awww!" heard across the internet thanks to baby Austin's aunt Cindy Clark, a Pennsylvania-based dog breeder who decided to share these images of her then 3-month-old nephew with a few 3-week-old French bulldog puppies. Each pup's chubby little body snuggled up with each other is too cute for words, but throwing an equally sweet baby in the mix is just cute overload! See more, here.
