There are people out there who spend hours at a time watching compilation videos on YouTube, and most of those compilations center around the ridiculous antics of hilarious pets. I would know, because I’m one of those (sad, sad) people. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably seen the video below.
This clip shows Lottie and Grizzly — two four-legged friends that are decidedly adorable — sharing a nice little hug. If you haven’t seen it yet, you haven’t lived (or maybe you have a social life, unlike myself).
Who’s your best friend?Ft. Grizzly

But what you probably didn’t know is that this hug didn’t start as some precious ploy to gain followers on social media. These two are actually attached at the hip, and the cold, cruel world is a better place because of it.
This is a picture of Lottie and her mom, Taylor Duguay.
And here’s Grizzly. No one was sure how Lottie would react to the new addition, but much to their delight, the pup took to Grizzly instantly.
As their lucky human explained to BuzzFeed, “Lottie and Grizzly have been inseparable since day one. Lottie truly believes that Grizzly is her own puppy.”
Judging by these photos, I think it’s safe to say that the dynamic duo wants us to drown in our own tears.
And if that’s the case, mission accomplished.
In case you haven’t been thrown deeply enough into this chasm of unadulterated cuteness, Duguay said that Lottie started hugging Grizzly on her own while they were working on some other tricks.
I can tell from these pictures that Lottie and Grizzly’s two favorite activities are hiking and being perfect.
If you need me, I’ll be wheezing and sobbing on the shoulder of my very, very confused dog.
As evidenced by these two, there is some good left in the world. To keep up with their preciousness and to start the world’s largest collection of human tears, be sure to follow them on Instagram and Facebook! Your mental health and overall worldview will thank you.
