The coronavirus has been such a downer in our everyday lives.
Not only has it been killing hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, it has forever changed the way we’ll be living our lives for the foreseeable future. We’re living the ‘new normal’, as they say.
This also means we’ll be spending more time indoors than before. And with more time spent indoors, the more often we’ll look to the internet for some sense of joy, positivity, and happiness.
Well, if that’s what you’re currently looking for, you’ve come to the right place.
Introducing: Cooper and Baby, a pair of corgi siblings in Myanmar.
Cooper and Baby are two Pembroke Welsh corgis who haven’t just been stealing the attention of starry-eyed social media users in Myanmar and across the internet, they’ve been stealing hearts.
Perhaps they represent the right dose of cuteness and joy that we could all use a little bit of right now.
Even if it’s just for a little while, looking at these corgis just makes me smile.
Two-year-old Cooper, the elder corgi, is described as a “SWEET boy” according to the siblings’ Instagram bio.
And after spending a few minutes on their social media profiles, it’s easy to see why.
But if you think Cooper is adorable, wait ’til you see Baby, his younger sister.
Described as a “FEISTY girl” on their official Instagram account, Baby visibly makes more appearances on social media than Cooper does.
That’s because she’s a lot more photogenic and doesn’t mind being in front of the camera.
Talking to Next Shark, their owner May Theint Nwe exclaimed that the 5-month-old Baby is a super energetic pup.
And her favorite snack is oven-baked chicken (or chimkin in dog-speak):
Of course, Baby wasn’t always around. According to Nwe, it was her love for Cooper that made her adopt Baby as a new member of the family.
It didn’t take very long to see it was crystal clear that Cooper and Baby were a perfect fit for each other as doggy siblings.

How can you resist that wet little heart-shaped nose?
“Baby is a very affectionate puppy and she loves attention too. She likes to crawl on people’s lap and sleep there. She loves hugs and cuddles, unlike her brother Cooper who tries to wriggle away when we hug him,” said Nwe to Next Shark.
Happy International Dog Day!
