We know you love your pups as much as we do (Dogs of Instagram Costume Contest, anyone?), which is why we love discovering facts about their super cute behavior. Finding out exactly why dogs like to stick their heads out the car window was totally enlightening, but when word got out that dogs may dream about their owners while sleeping, the reaction was, well, freakin鈥 adorable.

鈥淲hat do dogs experience when they dream?鈥 Clinical and Evolutionary Psychologist Dr. Deirdre Barrett asked in People. Her answer: 鈥淗umans dream about the same things they鈥檙e interested in by day, though more visually and less logically. There鈥檚 no reason to think animals are any different. Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it鈥檚 likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you.鈥

Again, freakin鈥 adorable.

The internet agreed, with @harrysosborn tweeting the idea along with pics of a sleeping pup and a man crying (in this context over the fact the dog is happily dreaming about him). And a viral sensation was born, with the tweet receiving over 60,000 retweets and counting.

People responded, not only by expressing how much this makes them love their dog pals even more鈥

They also tweeted a bajillion pics of their sleeping pups. Yeah, basically one of the best things to ever happen on the internet鈥

Although, now, with all of the attention, @harrysosborn鈥檚 pup may be dreaming more about his fame than his owner鈥
