Sometimes the cutest animals teach the youngest humans about trust

"Boxers love children," says dog owner Emily Marnell Stewart. "Our brindle boxer, Mason, is no exception. He is the most affectionate and gentle pup to my one-year-old daughter. He licks up her spilled milk, acts as a step-stool when she wants to get up on the couch, and gives endless cuddles and kisses." Check out the fun facts you never knew about dogs you didn't know.

Everybunny loves somebunny sometime

This kitty and cute rabbit can sing along to that tune. Cute cats are everyone's obsession though, aren't they? (Here's how to decode your cat's bizarre behavior.)

Trust is often expressed through hygiene

Cleanliness is king, right?

You know the love runs deep when the couch is crowded

Two rescue dogs + one bunny = the top of our still cute animal pics list, obviously. That's math.

An open heart is letting another species find your ticklish spots

Have you ever seen animals actually tickling each other? Now you have. Interspecies tickling is filling your screen right now.

What happens when a puppy and a duck walk into a bar?

It turns out these snuggle muffins share a meal like old pals, proving that nothing binds creatures quite like good grub. We wonder if this duck even minds the scent of wet dogs closer to his or her native habitat.

Nothing says cute like a prolonged interspecies cuddlefest

We can all agree that seeing a chinchilla, a dog, and a cat snuggling happily is probably the greatest cute animal scene of all. You're obviously going to want to bookmark this page of cute animal pics for when you're having a rough day, because this lovefest is even better than ice cream.

You didn't expect to see a bunny and a kitty sharing a meal, did you?

This is the kind of love that builds nations. We're sure of it.

A list of cute animal pics without a horse, of course? Neigh.

Interspecies trust obviously extends to the barnyard too. Don't miss the touching story of a horse that acts as its owner's eyes.

Even a gazelle and a pug can find common ground (literally)

We have no idea why a baby gazelle and a grown-up pug decided to sunbathe together, but we're probably all better for having witnessed it.
