Puppies Galore! Dog Photos For The Summer

This summer is quickly becoming the season of puppies. Two weeks ago, a Dalmatian gave birth to 16 puppies, and earlier this month, the world was enthralled by the world's most excited puppy jumping for joy.

While this spring did have a puppy cam and a cool puppy time-lapse video, not much beats a whole lot of Dalmatian puppies. Except for maybe just a whole lot of different kinds of puppies. Thus, we've made a slideshow of just that.

It should be noted that not all puppies have happy homes, and the Humane Society estimates that 3-4 millions dogs and cats are euthanized in the U.S. each year. If you're looking for a pet, consider adoption.
