The furry critters who live all around us are looking forward to a new year full of fun, food and friends, and they're so happy they can hardly contain themselves!
Animals aren't generally very good at hiding their emotions, so when they're upset everyone knows it, but when all is right in their world they can't help but smile the day away
There's something about seeing an animal in the throes of pure, unadulterated bliss that makes everything seem right in the world, and their love of the simple things serves as a reminder of what's really important in life- yummy snacks!
We humans often rush through life trying to carve out our own happy place, but in the process we lose touch with the simple things that used to make us happy, like swinging or rocking the day away on the playground
Loneliness got you down? Maybe you need more friendship in your life, because nothing lifts the spirits like goofing around with your best bud
The beauty of a best friend is they're not just there to goof around- they also make a mighty nice snuggle buddy when you're feeling a bit sheepish
Snuggliness comes quite naturally to furry critters, and for many animals sleeping is a fast track to a feeling of pure bliss
For other animals there's nothing like scurrying and scampering around to make them smile, because for them happiness is the freedom found in a field full of flowers
Freedom means never having to worry about what people think about you, and those who are happy and free can't help but kick up their heels, even if they're dancing with themselves
Happiness doesn't have to be a two mammal sport, but bringing someone along with you on the happy train to Bilssville can lead to fun adventures you'll be talking about for the rest of your life!
We hope these blissful beasts have shown you how easy it can be to find your own happy place in life, but if you're having trouble turning that frown upside down it might be time to get a friend to lend a helping hand!
