We’re not sure if it was coincidence or planning that National Puppy Day ended up on a Monday this year, but we’re grateful regardless. With winter weather prevailing past the first day of spring, we’re desperate for anything to get our moods up. 

So today we’re celebrating our best friends with pics of their cutest, dumbest, silliest, most lovable puppy years. Send us yours! Derpy, sleepy, regal, muddy, it doesn’t matter—we want to see dogs in all forms, all shapes and sizes. Be sure to follow along on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #NationalPuppyDay. Your week will thank you.

Start by browsing the hashtag on Twitter.

But that’s not even the best part of National Puppy Day. It’s a chance to appreciate our favorite Internet-famous dogs for their puppy years. Here are our #tbt picks from Instagram’s finest pups.
