Here Is A Dog Wearing A Bear Suit On A Treadmill Because The World Needs Some Cute Right Now—VIDEO

Everything sucks and the world is awful today, from the Ferguson verdict to the Rolling Stone UVA rape story. When things get really bad, and you feel that change is a hopeless endeavor, you can soothe yourself for at least 30 seconds with this video of Munchkin the Shih Tzu wearing a bear suit while walking on a treadmill. It's not going to solve the world's problems or make them go away, but it is going to give you a little reprieve and possibly even a chance to smile.

In the spirit of taking a few seconds out of our day to appreciate something adorable, let's talk about Munchkin. The fact that Munchkin's name is Munchkin makes me want to eat Munchkin, not in the actual sense that I wold eat her, just in the way that cute things give you the urge to eat them. I also would very much like to squeeze Munchkin as hard as I can, because cute things also make you want to squeeze the shit out of them. Why cuteness inspires hunger and possible violence, we will never know. So take a moment out of your day to shut the world out and remember that things aren't all bad. At least we have dog-sized bear suits in the world.
