Certain animal parts, like the ever-venerated cat paw, seem to have a special place in our hearts. (Well, you can’t really blame us for finding cat paws, or even cat nuts, for that matter, irresistibly cute, can you?) Animal buttocks also seem to be a favorite around the world, based on their popularity on the web. Japan is no exception, and we have our fair share of animal tooshie lovers — even a following of hamster butt fans on Facebook. So it’s not really surprising that the Japanese online public has recently been swooning over a series of pictures featuring … dog butts! But darn it, nobody warned us canine bums were so lethally cute!

These dog butt pictures, originally shown on media and viral web content site Distracitfy, were quickly picked up by the Japanese Internet. And yes, the images certainly did “distract” us, by making us squirm with delight!

Naturally, there have been numerous comments in response by enthusiastic Japanese Internet users extolling the aesthetic virtues of dog butts, including the following:

“I can’t stop smiling at these pictures!”
“Yes, I can see why a dog butt picture book wouldn’t be a crazy idea at all.”
“Thank you. I can now fantasize about burying my face in all these cute dog butts!”
“I don’t care if I’m called a pervert (hentai), these butts are CUTE!!”
“Okay, I’m glad to see I’m not the only hentai getting excited over these pictures.”

So, as you can tell from the comments above, we definitely love our animal butts here in Japan (so much so that we even have photo contests dedicated to them). Well, contest or not, we enjoy seeing adorable animal pictures any time, so we’re certainly glad for this compilation of beautiful dog backsides. We hope the images made your day just that much happier, because they certainly did ours!
