What is more adorable than a dog cuddling? We found the answer: a dog cuddling and playing with a stuffed animal. Recently, we went on a journey through videos and pictures of dogs playing with their best plush pals. These are some of our favorites.

Why Stuffed Animals?

According to Wag, some breeds (like Labs and Golden Retrievers) might be genetically predisposed to nurturing their toys.

“[Some dogs] fall into that group as their predecessors were used for hunting and carrying ducks – which would explain their gentle grasps and commitment to always having a plushie in their mouth,” said Wag.

This pic, while a little sad, also makes us smile.
