Dogs fix everything.

Feeling a little worse than usual this Monday? Well, that's because today is blue Monday aka the most depressing day of the year. It's the day when everything just comes crashing in. The unfulfilled resolutions, the broken diets, the gloomy weather, the fact your bank account is still in minus figures all stack up to one mean case of the blues. Mondays are bleak and January is dismal so it kind of makes sense that the most depressing day of the year would take place now. 

While we would have rathered stay in bed watching a bunch of sad films and wallowing in ice cream, we're actually sat at our desks trying to beat the blues. Our solution? Looking at cute pictures of dogs, obviously. Here are seven of the best doggy Instagram accounts you need to follow to brighten up today and the rest of your days to come.

hi from me

A post shared by NORBERT (@norbertthedog) on

Norbert is a 3-pound puppy who loves giving high-fives, writing children books and serving as a therapy dog. We actually dare you to not smile at his little face.

Cooper

Following in his momma's footsteps, Cooper is the cutest influencer we've set our eyes on. Look at those ears!

Pingo and Nina

Not quite 101 dalmatians but hey, two are better than none. Pingo & Nina are dalmatians from Brazil and their friendship melts our hearts.

A post shared by Dogs In Food (@dogs_infood) on

Dogs and food are our two favourite things in life, so combining Dogs in Food is genius. This account is gonna serve some serious lols. Prepare yourself because you’re about to lose hours scrolling through this feed.

Agador

They call him the Bob Ross of dogs and if that doesn’t get you on board, then what will? Agador is the fluffiest ball of fun and we want a play date asap.

Ollie & Penny

The '@ handle' is what got us onto their page and the adorableness of Ollie & Penny’s face is what got us to stay. These Irish sausie dogs are more than just Instagrammers, they also have their own fashion line.

Toby has a face like butter wouldn't melt and just when you thought you couldn't love him more, his mantra is #fluffynotfat. 

What did we ever do to deserve dogs?
