Because we have an unlimited amount of love in our hearts for both One Direction and dogs, when the two are ever in close proximity to each other we basically lose our minds/chill for an embarrassing amount of time.
In celebration of the fact Niall Horan was spotted hanging out with an adorable canine on Australia Day, we've taken this a sign from above that we should write up the ultimate '1D and Dogs' masterpost.

2. The time Harry uploaded a picture of a tiny puppy to Instagram:
3. The time we thought we'd actually died and gone to heaven:
4. The time the whole gang (plus two puppies) looked sharp at a radio event:
5. The time Liam uploaded this adorable selfie:
6. The time Niall hung out with the coolest music video extra of all time, Colin Watson:
7. The time Liam was swarmed by two over-eager pups:
8. The time Harry asked a dog live on 1DDay if it was well:

15. And the time Harry tripped over a dog and then apologised to it:
