If you want something to take your mind off the workday grind, look no further.


A live video feed on Explore.org shows a litter of great danes that will grow up to be service dogs. The pups are part of the Service Dog Project, an accredited nonprofit in Ipswich, Massachusetts. The nonprofit gives priority to veterans and their families and is accredited by Assistance Dogs International.

Service Dog Project breeds the sturdy canines to help those with mobility issues.

“A support dog should be at least 45% of the person’s height and 65% of the person’s weight,” according to their website. “A 6 foot tall man needs a 30” dog. This puts stability at the person’s fingertips.”
