Puppies Get Taken On Day Out To Deserted Aquarium
With many nations currently on lockdown, we're all having to think up alternative ways to keep ourselves entertained at the moment - and it would appear that includes some lucky pups, who recently popped down to their local aquarium while it was closed to the public.
I know, this is EXACTLY the kind of wholesome content we need right now.
The good folk at Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) decided to take some puppies out to Georgia Aquarium recently, because - like many attractions and venues right now - it was closed to the general public.
Saying the puppies had the 'best day ever', AHS shared a video of them in action on Twitter, where the footage racked up more than 53,000 likes and 15,000 retweets.
AHS wrote: "Our puppies just had the best. day. ever.
"They got to explore the @GeorgiaAquarium while it is closed to the public. They made all sorts of exciting discoveries and lots of new friends!"

It looks like Georgia Aquarium also had fun hosting the dogs, also saying on Twitter: "No ruff days here, just a couple of cute puppers from @AtlantaHumane exploring our Ocean Voyager habitat."
Referring to the two dogs in the video, the aquarium also shared a link highlighting how people could help AHS, adding: "Siblings Odie and Carmel are two of the many dogs from AHS currently residing in loving foster homes. Like us, AHS is dedicated to providing the best care for their animals during this time. See how you can help our friends."
The post links through to AHS' website, where a letter from President and CEO Cal Morgan explains there are 'dozens of animals waiting' for loving families and forever homes.
The letter says: "This spring will be one of our busiest, and we are doing our best to prepare for it.
"But we still need your help, so we can properly provide shelter and care for the dozens of newborn puppies and kittens who will be brought to us.
"Every animal who comes through our doors will have unique needs, and we've already stretched our resources to accommodate so many vulnerable dogs and cats.
"In order to make sure no animal is turned away during the busy spring season, we urgently need your help to provide for them."
Included in Morgan's message is a 'wish list' covering basic items that will 'keep each and every puppy and kitten healthy and happy while they wait for adoption'.
"Whatever you choose will make a wonderful, life-changing difference for many desperate animals," Morgan says, signing off the message 'for the animals'.
