It’s Monday again….

It’s always hard to say goodbye to the glorious time that we call the weekend.

We know Mondays can be hard, so we’ve gathered a list of the top 13 cute dog pictures that help us get through Monday!

You won’t be able to resist cracking a smile at these cuties.

1. Speaking of Smiles...

Lizzie.Bear Instagram

We’re starting this post off with this adorable goldie. I mean, just look at this sweet smile and that sunflower.

If this doesn’t make you crack a smile, we’re not sure what will!

Thank you to lizzie.bear for sharing this precious smile!

2. It's Always Better With Your Bestie

We’ve got double trouble and double cuteness going on right here folks. Honestly, we’re a bit jealous too. That water looks pawsitively delightful.

We’re glad justsomecutepuppies can soak some rays up for us though!

3. At Least Someone Is Still Sleeping

For those that want to pretend that it’s still the weekend, we present you with shibainu.reliability catching some extra Zzzs for you. Starting the week off would be close to impossible with that snuggle buddy in your lap.

4. Paws Up, Guys - Who Stole My Weekend?

Milotheminidappledachs seems to be in shock that the bandit we call time stole another Sunday. Maybe if we freeze and stare at his precious face, the seconds will go by a little slower.

No, not working? Well, thanks for the distraction anyway, Milo.

5. Muzic Hears You… He Just Doesn’t Care

Muzic.theboston Instagram

Muzic.theboston is giving us super “I don’t care” vibes, which is perfect because we’re struggling to care that it’s Monday too.

We hear you Muzic… it should be the weekend. Let’s all just pretend together.

6. I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Fibi.the.aussie Instagram

We think fibi.the.aussie has the right idea about how to cheer yourself up on a tough Monday. We’re not saying emotional eating is always the way to go… but an occasional treat might do just the trick.

7. For The Optimists Out There

Does this mini Golden Doodle puppy remind you of the co-worker who brings the high energy to Monday morning Zoom meetings? Yeah, same.

Looking at that chipper smile and ultra cute outfit is making us feel a little better about the unfortunate day of the week that is Monday.

Thanks for brightening up our morning with this adorable photo pawchic_sister_doodles!

8. Mr. Walter Lewis Still Wants to Party

Mr.walterlewis Instagram

We’ve decided to pretend that we’re going home early to this cutie, mr.walterlewis.

That certainly makes Monday feel a little less stressful, am I right?

9. Rise and Shine!

Miss.mable.the.vizsla Instagram

Okay… If miss.mabel.the.vizsla was the one to wake us up early Monday morning instead of our alarm clocks, we’d probably enjoy Mondays a whole lot more... even if it meant getting a ball shoved into our faces at 6 am. We’re just saying it’d probably be worth it to get a kiss from this cheery-eyed pup.

10. Who Needs a Pick-Me-Up?

Sharpeiofficial Instagram

We know that mid-Monday Starbucks run all too well! And, if you've ever felt like you aged overnight, Natty is here to make you feel much better about those wrinkles in your Monday morning reflection. This Shar Pei pup gives us all the fuzzie feels and reminds us that it's all about confidence, even when you're tired!

Thank you so much sharpeiofficial for sharing this wrinkly little pup with us!

11. The Pugdashians Are Waiting

Pugdashians Instagram

It was hard to choose just one dog to finish this post with, so we went with a family - the [Pugdashians]((! Personally, I appreciate the reminder of my binge-worthy TV series waiting for me in just a few... more... hours...

Although, I’d definitely buy merch if these Pugdashians came out with any - just saying.

We hope this post brightened up your Monday a little bit!

Just remember - dogs.

Whether you’re feeling tired, bored, or stressed - dogs.

It always does the trick for us! Share with another dog-loving friend for double the benefit, and don't forget to add @PawlicyAdvisor on Instagram for more content!

She recently rescued a puppy named Zoey who went from the streets of Mexico to the big lights in L.A. after Kaelee helped her become officially studio-trained for production work, with the goal of strengthen her dog's confidence as well as the bond they share. Kaelee remains passionate about pets in her role as Content Marketing Manager by helping owners prepare for the financial burden that often comes with giving our furry BFFs the best care possible. Enrolling Zoey in a pet insurance policy was a no-brainer for Kaelee, as it enabled her to get reimbursed for vet costs like spaying, vaccinations, routine care, and more.
