Look, it’s no secret that we’re all under a lot of stress right now. The next time you start to feel your anxiety levels creep up, we’ve got a temporary (but genius) solution: stop whatever you are doing and watch this video of adorable puppies exploring an aquarium.
I mean, just look at them:
Our puppies just had the best. day. ever.
They got to explore the @GeorgiaAquarium while it is closed to the public. They made all sorts of exciting discoveries and lots of new friends! pic.twitter.com/f0iHXfq3AF

The two scruffy puppies, named Odie and Carmel, are from the Atlanta Humane Society. They were able to take their almost-too-cute-for-words puppy field trip while the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta at a time when the venue was closed to the public.
Of course, they are young puppies, so some people noticed that their attention spans were pretty short:
they are so uninterested in the fish.

And they seemed to be way more interested in what was in their handler’s pockets:
They look QUITE oblivious to the magnificent fish, and more into what TREATOS their guide has?

But even so, the cuteness factor caused some people to want the aquarium to reconsider its regular rules:
I’m sorry, why exactly don’t puppies run loose every day? Because I’d pay double for that.

Of course, since the puppies got to explore the aquarium (and sniff what we can only imagine were some truly incredible smells), it was only fair that the shelter let a few kitties explore, too.
The resulting video did not disappoint:
After our puppies got to visit the @GeorgiaAquarium, we couldn't resist taking our kittens too!
They couldn't get enough of the beautiful Tropical Diver exhibit, and loooooved the jellies! We hope their adorable adventure puts a smile on your face. pic.twitter.com/EMMq9MSzfl

The kitties, wearing matching red collars and tags, were much more interested in life at the aquarium, especially the jellyfish:
Cats are way more into it than the puppies ?

Alright, seriously… how completely adorable was all of that? Thank you so much, internet!
