This guy is similar to the sleepy bulldog puppy. Obviously, this kitty is pooped. You can't help but be a little bit jealous when you notice the roaring fire next to him because odds are, you've never been that content in your entire life. Unless you're the sleepy bulldog puppy.

Two dogs hugging. yes, it's as cute as it sounds ...

This pic tells much more of a story than the sleepy bulldog puppy. Two adorable dogs, one hugging the other during a time of duress, is the kind of cute animal stuff that normally is found on Hallmark cards for sick people. Is compassion cuter than pure cuteness? If you think so, then you've found a challenger for the sleepy bulldog puppy in the "Cutest Thing Ever" contest.

"My gf's cat went missing for 6 months and today we came home to this. She broke down in tears."  - 2352 upvotes

Reunited, and it feels so good ...

Another "aw"-inducing story that comes along with a heart-melting pic. The sleepy bulldog puppy is cozy on the floor inside his house and obviously the center of attention in his little world, but this cat was missing and just looks pleased as punch to be home again. Anyone who's ever lost a pet knows the heartbreak the poster's girlfriend must've felt, so if you're a fan of reunion stories then this little guy definitely gives the sleepy bulldog puppy a run for his cutie-pie money.

"Her favourite spot, photos taken 3 months apart." - 3168 upvotes

This pic proves that dogs understand nostalgia.

Story photos seem to have the added emotional oomph that straight-up cute pics (à la sleepy bulldog puppy) kind of lack. This photo's "aw" factor comes from its haunting fatalism as we are reminded of our own growth and change on this big blue marble called Earth. We were all little shelf pups once, and we're all searching, in our own way, to get into our favorite spots again.

Too deep? Does deepness affect the cuteness factor? Maybe that's the true beauty of the sleepy bulldog puppy -- the simplicity.
