They’re pretty great, right?

These pets’ pictures have all been shared on a Facebook page set up to cheer up a 16-year-old boy in Arizona, undergoing treatment for lymphoblastic leukemia.

Friends of Anthony Lyons’ family set up the page as a supplement to the canine therapy he’s been receiving while in hospital.

So far over half a million photos have been shared on the page, and more than 840,ooo people have shown their support.

So, if you’ve got a bit of time and need some cheering up yourself, or maybe you’d like to share your own precious pooch, just click.
