A challenge for you: Today, don't look at the news. It'll still be there when you go back to it tomorrow, probably with similar headlines from yesterday. Today, give yourself a break. Break off from the crazy, the manic, the sad, the scary stories that flood our feeds and do something that's just joy-inducing. Like looking at pictures of sweet, furry, quirky dogs, living in their element, waiting to do what they do best: be super cute.

According to CNN Health, "studies have found that the pleasure centers of our brains are actually lighting up when we see something cute because there is a rush of dopamine to the brain." So, get ready to get lit, naturally, with these adorable little dogs we discovered throughout our many Hunker tours. Have we mentioned how much we love our job? (Click on each dog's name to see where they live with their humans!)

Laurie Gunning Grossman, Hunker’s editorial director, caught the California boho minimalist bug. So, she bought a cream-colored couch. And she also lives with two kids and two dogs, so we’ll see how that decision pans out.
