If three minutes of sunshine and dog smiles doesn't make you grin, then we're not sure what will.

In the short film "Dogs In Cars: California," director Keith Hopkin captures eight dogs doing what dogs love to do most: lean out over the passenger side of their owners' cars on the open road. Here's Hopkin's simple description of his newest film: "Dogs in cars doing what they love to do ... in California."

Set to the song "California" by Phantom Planet, the slow-motion video luxuriates in the rippling fur and flapping ears of dogs like Diggy, Tekken and Jasmine as they ride shotgun through the streets of Los Angeles, Calif. At minute 0:46, there's a montage of dogs closing their eyes as they give themselves over to the pleasure of it all: sun, wind and love.

The film is a follow up to an earlier video with a similar theme: "Dogs In Cars."

When life gets overwhelming, just take a page from these dogs and learn to let yourself enjoy the little things.
