They are called pups.

I sense a great disturbance in the Internet, as if millions of users cried out "Awwwwwwwww!" and were suddenly smiling.

Is there such a thing as too much cuteness? This might be it.

I don't get the arbitrary cuteness and sleepiness scores. Otherwiszzzzzzzz....

I would prefer an explanation of their cuteness and sleepiness parameters, as I am displeased with some of the scores. Sleepy Puppy 10, for example, clearly deserves a higher cute score than 2, and depending on the rating scale, I would also argue that he is far more sleepy than the assigned '4'.

Overall I feel this is sloppily executed and am dissatisfied with their apparently nonexistent explanation of methodology.

Oh sure, they're cute, but that's why you can't trust them! Just when they lull you into a comforted state by how sweet they are, you start to doze off yourself, and BAM! the next thing you know you are covered in the little bastards.

Kittens nestled in your arms, puppies in your laps, maybe a seal cozied up by your feet.

Don't let them fool you! They just want to use you as their bed!

Is a kitten that only scores a cuteness of 2 still even a kitten?

I wish there were a category specifically for things falling down while falling asleep. I'm a sucker for that classic bumping-nose-on-floor-and-waking-up-suddenly-looking-surprised sequence.

In Dutch we call them zeehonden, lit. "sea-dogs". Thus, this classification is entirely and indisputably correct.

If you're finding it too cloyingly saccharine, simply imagine that, instead watching cutsie-wootsie animals fall asleep, you're watching the test footage from a lab that's developed a lethal new nerve agent.

You keep petting sleepy puppy like that and you're going to wind up with perky puppy.

The only thing cuter than animals falling asleep is them being put to sleep.

Fuck you, cute things falling asleep. Guess what? Anyone can fall asleep, it's not some goddamn special talent. And it's not that fucking hard to look cute doing it. Is everyone still going to say "Awwww" if instead of falling asleep you're peeing on their rug or tearing their favorite shoes to shreds? I don't think so. And guess what else? There's already a gazillion websites out there with pictures or videos of cutesy-wootsy widdle animals. You are not groundbreaking. You are not a unique fucking snowflake. This whole thing is getting real old, and in a couple of years the "cuteness" fad will be over and you'll be just another washed-up former child star battling the catnip addiction they can no longer afford. So just grow up and fucking get over yourself already, cute things falling asleep. Stop being so damn cute and do something productive for a change, something that'll give you a shot at a real future, you know?

Blocked by Websense as "Organizational Email"? Is this some kind of cult?

When our 90 pound boxer falls asleep, too often he is in bed with us. He farts, and then does the Spasmodic Jutting of Limbs in Arbitrary Directions. Woe to you who are in the path of a jutting limb, or the invisible but debilitating flatulence.

What I mean to say is, it's not cute.

When animals dream, they become people. That's why squirrels love nuts and dogs sniff
crotches or vice versa.

Huh, I thought this was just a Australian cattle dog thing. I figured there was some part of their dingo hind-brain that was fighting off killer koalas or something.

They don't sleep. They merely rest. While they wait for you.

What the frakkin' frak??! I call shenanigans due to lack of red panda. You can't call yourself a connoisseur of cute, awake or falling asleep, without including those concentrated fuzzballs of will melting cuteness!

Sloths were clearly created by Jim Henson for Farscape and somehow ended up being animals instead.

This is like, the worst website to watch on a day when I had two hours sleep the night before, and have been struggling to stay awake all day.

I think I'll just look at say, ten more videos, and be off.

I wish he'd been alive to help Farscape fully realize its bizarrely fucked up glory.

They're waterdogs! Dogs gone, long ago, too far out to sea, chasing after a cursed nerf ball. It's in the Greek.

My mother's 12 week old king charles puppy was sitting in front of an open fire for the first time last week. He closed his eyes and fell over. Puppies are the best.
