Are you a sucker for dogs, cats, and other critters as much as I am? Do you find yourself immersed in dog and cat videos on social media? I hope you're saying yes because it's slightly embarrassing to be the only one who finds these things almost irresistible.

There seems to be no shortage of rancor and dissension among people on digital media these days, so when I discover things that can make people laugh, or cry, or laugh until they cry, I think we're making progress in society.

What is it about putting dogs, cats, llamas, goats or any other animal in a picture with a caption that we find so funny? Why do we humans love to project our thoughts and feeling onto our friends in the animal kingdom? Would they mind if they realized what we're doing? Or would they be able to find the humor in it? I guess we'll never know. That said, let's have a few laughs at their expense, er, in their honor!
