First off, if you’re worried about your employer’s feelings about a Puppy Off, just show them this study:
A study released last October shows that looking at pictures of baby animals greatly increases focus and productivity.
In other words, a Puppy Off will help you get your work done and everyone who participates should probably get a raise or an Employee of the Month award or something. Feel free to send us a cut of the bonus you’re bound to receive after looking over this Performance Enhancing PuppyOff.
I spotted this puppy on Pinterest yesterday and just had to share with BuzzFeed Animals’ Twitter followers.
“I think this is one of the cutest pups I have ever seen!”
Then Twitter user youneedabath sent over another ludicrously charming puppy. Although he sent it without commentary, it seemed to be an invitation to spar…
Now, we received close to a hundred puppies* yesterday and it was the best day ever. We’ve managed, through objective scientific measures, to narrow it down to the the 50 most productivity enhancing pups of the group.
