If there are two things that appeal to the ‘awww’ factor of at least 90% of the population, it’s tiny babies and dogs. Put the two together and, well, you’ve got a melt-worthy combination that will make you smile no matter how crappy your day.

This is a fact that comic artist Nate Anderson knows firsthand since bringing home a baby boy to join his giant pooch and the rest of the family. Though he started drawing the strip “Quackyboys” to illustrate his funny adventures with his college roommates, life has moved on, and his new strip is a way for him to process the changes, as well as connect his experience with others.

Boy and Dog” strips are released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on his website, so make sure and keep up after you scroll through some favorites below and fall in love.
