These images of Doggos being reunited with their favorite humans are a wave of pure joy

Humans and dogs have a long, historic relationship that plays out in special, individual bonds the world over. Countless people have found themselves unable to resist the adorableness of a puppy they were just going to "look at," and ended up in a mutually adoring relationship. Countless kids have grown up with a loyal canine companion who is always there for them and makes up a big part of their childhood memories.

This bond is no more apparent than when a dog and its favorite human get separated and then reunited. Some dogs express excitement when they see pretty much anyone, but when a pup has a person, there's nothing like it.

Just look at how happy this lost doggo is to see her owner—and vice versa.


This dog's favorite human has had to social distance from his family due to a lung condition during the pandemic. When they finally get to see each other? Magic.


When your pup goes missing, it's traumatic. A good samaritan found this dog from "Missing" signs put up in the neighborhood, and just look how the owner comes running when he sees his furry friend in the front seat.

This gentleman has been in the hospital, so someone had to hold the sweet pupperoo back a bit at first so the man didn't get pummeled with love. But once they let go, the good doggo gave him some warm, gentle lovin'.

Sometimes a reunion happens after a long absence, but dogs remember their loved ones. It may take some sniffing around a bit to trigger the recognition, but once that happens it's a sight to behold.

This sweet girl has been living in a shelter for three year after getting separated from her owner. It takes her a minute to realize who he is, but then the love fest begins. The jumping and the whimpering? So awesome.

This dog's owner's been gone for two years with the military. At first, the dog seems not to recognize her, and even seems wary of her. Then comes the sniff and a hug. Then full-on celebration.

This golden retriever doesn't have that issue. In fact, just the mention of his mama being home sends him to the door, and when she comes in? Best. Day. Ever.

This owner and his dog have only been separated for five weeks, but a five-week hospital stay that results in a 50-pound weight loss confused the poor pup. He barks and won't get close enough to smell him at first. But once he does, the tail goes wagging and the kisses commence.

Sometimes a dog that's gone missing goes through some things before they finally get reunited with their humans. This doggo seems scared when she sees her family after having been lost for 19 months. Who knows what she experienced, but once she starts warming up a bit and gets close enough to smell her humans, the reunion becomes the joyful party it should be.

But this one. This one really shows how much Jorge the dog missed his owners after being lost for three years. You can hear it in his voice. Seriously.

Humans barely deserve dogs, but we're so grateful for the joy, companionship, and genuine no-strings-attached love they bring to our lives.

Often, parents of children with special needs struggle to find Halloween costumes that will accommodate medical equipment or provide a proper fit. And figuring out how to make one? Yikes.

There's good news; shopDisney has added new ensembles to their already impressive line of adaptive play costumes. And from 8/30 - 9/26, there's a 20% off sale for all costume and costume accessory orders of $75+ with code Spooky.

When looking for the right costume, kids with unique needs have a lot of extra factors to consider: wheelchair wheels get tangled up in too-long material, feeding tubes could get twisted the wrong way, and children with sensory processing disorders struggle with the wrong kind of fabric, seams, or tags. There are a lot of different obstacles that can come between a kid and the ability to wear the costume of their choice, which is why it's so awesome that more and more companies are recognizing the need for inclusive creations that make it easy for everyone to enjoy the magic of make-believe.

Created with inclusivity in mind, the adaptive line is designed to discreetly accommodate tubes or wires from the front or the back, with lots of stretch, extra length and roomier cut, and self-stick fabric closures to make getting dressed hassle-free. The online shop provides details on sizing and breaks down the magical elements of each outfit and accessory, taking the guesswork out of selecting the perfect costume for the whole family.

Your child will be able to defeat Emperor Zurg in comfort with the Buzz Lightyear costume featuring a discreet flap opening at the front for easy tube access, with self-stick fabric closure. There is also an opening at the rear for wheelchair-friendly wear, and longer-length inseams to accommodate seated guests. To infinity and beyond!

An added bonus: many of the costumes offer a coordinating wheelchair cover set to add a major boost of fun. Kids can give their ride a total makeover—all covers are made to fit standard size chairs with 24" wheels—to transform it into anything from The Mandalorian's Razor Crest ship to Cinderella's Coach. Some options even come equipped with sounds and lights!

From babies to adults and adaptive to the group, shopDisney's expansive variety of Halloween costumes and accessories are inclusive of all.

Don't forget about your furry companions! Everyone loves to see a costumed pet trotting around, regardless of the occasion. You can literally dress your four-legged friend to look like Sven from Frozen, which might not sound like something you need in your life but...you totally do. CUTENESS OVERLOAD.

This year has been tough for everyone, so when a child gets that look of unfettered joy that comes from finally getting to wear the costume of their dreams, it's extra rewarding. Don't wait until the last minute to start looking for the right ensemble!

The first few months after having a newborn are seriously stressful. It's tough to get any sleep and your entire schedule revolves around the needs of the baby.

It's expensive, too! It seems like you're constantly shelling out $25 for a box of diapers and $40 for a can of formula.

So it's understandable that a Facebook user who goes by the name of Chris Blaze asked for a deal when buying a Samsung washer and dryer set of a guy named Dave he met online.
