A lot of people say that the Internet is made up of a lot of things that make me sad, but mostly, the Internet is made up of a lot of animals that make me glad! So today, a letter of gratitude and open letter to....THE ADORABLE ANIMALS OF THE INTERNETS!

Dear Adorable Animals of the Internets,

First, thank you. Thank you for always being there for me when I need a smile. Like you, panda on the rocking horse.

When we first locked eyes, there was no doubt in my mind that you were a panda that trulyloved to be on your rocking horse. In a single picture I see your passion for life, bamboo, and sunshine. Panda, you are an inspiration.

No, I didn't forget about you joyful waterfall elephant! How could I? Look at you!
I have met no other elephant on the Internet that has such a JOIE DE VIVRE! But what I love so much about you waterfall elephant is your sex appeal. Yes, I said it..your elephant sex appeal. You're not messing around. You saw an opportunity for you to sit in very good lighting and be underneath a waterfall and you took it! Bravo to you, waterfall elephant. Bravo!

Don't think I don't see you lounging there, baby monkey. I do. And I thank you for making me remember to kick back, relax, pee on myself, and just enjoy life.
What about you, puppy on the bamboo stick! How are you holding yourself up there, little man?
What upper body strength you have for such a little puppy! Your message to me on a day I feel blue? Keep hangin' onto that bamboo! If I, a tiny little pup, can do can you, Madde!

Dolphin kissing the Your love is so beautiful. It's not often that we see such passion in our daily lives. To think, you two are the Romeo and Juliet of the Internet animal kingdom. Many people said in the dolphin pool, "No, Earl..she's just a dog. She's not worth it. Don't give up your dreams for her. What will she give you? A bone? What's that worth to you, EARL!!?!?" But you showed your love. Thank you for giving me the courage to show MY love too.

Wiener dog wearing a giraffe costume: True, you are ironic, but you are a trailblazer! That costume does not look light, nor does it look like it gives you a proper hole to pee out of, but you sacrifice your well-being for the joy of me, a bored little blond girl on the Internets. Thank you.

Chimpanzee Riding on a Segway? Is that really you? I love you SO MUCH! I don't know what it is. Perhaps it's your catchy tuned song, your oiled up segway, or your ill-fitting overalls...Whatever it is, you care about me. You care enough to inspire me to wear a helmet and overalls, to ride my segway even if "that lady" looks surprised! Ooooo! Chimpanzee riding on a segway..I love you. A lot.

Internet are cute and cuddly, but you also can share a very important inspirational message with the world. Take for instance my dear, dear friend..RICKY, the Special Needs Monkey.

Ricky, we became familiar about a year ago. To be honest, not one day goes by where I don't think of you, you brave little chimp. Being hoisted up to your birthday cake, ready to blow out your monkey candles that look like foam. Carry on bravely, Ricky. You deserve a banana birthday cake, sprinkled in dreams! Thank you for making the Internet a joyful place to creep around and look for pictures of you doing super fun things like eating a birthday cake, or being held in the arms of a scary zoo keeper. You are an inspiration.

Internet, you are a wonderful, inspirational place filled with joyful, thumb-less creatures who make my life a much brighter place! Thank you Adorable Animals that fill the Internets! I heart you. A lot.

Eternal Gratitude,
