If These 40 Photos of Labrador Puppies Don't Bring a Smile to Your Face, Nothing Will

As the proud owner of a 100-pound black labrador retriever named Yogi, I often find myself scrolling through pup-related hashtags on Instagram when I'm having a bad day. Seems like a pretty good way to beat the blues, right?
