Just when you thought you were getting sick of Pharrell’s catchy single, “Happy,” the folks over at The Pet Collective had to go and get a bunch of adorable dogs involved. The Pet Collective YouTube channel is a pretty happy place to begin with so this version of the song is a perfect fit.

The altered lyrics in the “Puppy & Doggy Version” of the Oscar-nominated song capture the simple joys of being a happy hound. The dog-ified chorus goes like this:

Bark along if you feel like your master loves you.
Wag along if you feel like your tail is chasing you.
Howl along if you want a cuddle from me to you.
Dog around if you think you’re my best friend too.


The video is just frame after frame of adorable dogs and puppies playing inside and out, enjoying the company of their masters, as well as their canine companions. They run through fields, don super-cool shades, frolic and fetch while we awww at our computer screens.

The video ends with the message, “a happy dog makes a happy human,” followed by a call to share the snappy song on social media. Personally, I wish they’d finished with a shot of one of the dogs in Pharrell’s now-infamous Grammy hat; then the Internet could’ve exploded with pop-culture cuteness.
