Shiba Inu Puppy Vs. Paddling Pool (VIDEO)

Shiba Inu is a dog breed native to Japan - which makes sense, as Japanese folk are lovers of all things cute, and Shiba Inus are mighty, mighty cute.

Therefore Shiba Inu puppies are cute to the power of cute, and Shiba Inu puppies playing with a paddling pool - if we follow the internet's unwritten rules of adorability to their logical conclusion - are so cute it almost hurts.

So if you're ready for it, check out this tiny wee pup dealing with a small body of water in a rather wonderful manner above - and then after that, take a look at this gallery of fellow canine cutesters below. Enjoy!
