We're not saying we posted this video because we just need to look at a desperately cute dog to distract from, well, everything.

If this was a normal day and you were in work at your desk, dossing off before getting started for the day, you'd be reading this article anyway. And we'd be writing about it anyway. But, well, things aren't normal - but hey, the grass is still green, and dogs are still cute.

Stephen Colbert's dog, Benny, got his own little montage on the show's YouTube account for National Puppy Day in the US and it's easy to see why - he's cute as hell, has a great tuft of hair on him, he seems incredibly friendly, and like his owner, is able to hold your attention for any length of time without getting annoying.

Take a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth, relax your shoulders, and enjoy.
