The true power of social media can shine through dark times like this.

They also gift us with one of the most vital remedies: cute animal videos! We want to take a moment to thank J Balvin and Mario Lopez for being the most recent stars to share their adorable pups with the world.

Mario Lopez’s “three hermanos”

Both Latino stars took to social media on Friday, March 13 to spread some pawsome happiness on what's normally an unlucky day. "Oscar DeLa Hoya Lopez ain’t worried about a thing!" Mario wrote alongside an insanely cute clip of his French bulldog. "He’s getting vaccinated and all is well in his world." The two-toned pooch, who is named after the professional boxer, merely sits there in the video, and yet it's still incredibly smile-inducing. "So freaking cute," the real Oscar DeLa Hoya commented.

Mario has a penchant for naming pups after Mexican-American boxers, with his other sweet bulldog named Julio César Chávez. On the same day, the Access Hollywood host shared another delightful pic in honor of his son Santino turning 8 months old. "Here they are, Sonny, Julio, & Oscar," he wrote with the pooch-filled photo. "The 3 Hermanos. Looks like he’s wearing ‘em out!"

Meanwhile, J Balvin took a different, but equally euphoric route. In an effort to "put color" in this dark moment, he filmed his little golden puppy "twerking" for fans. Set to the tune of Baby Got Back, the tiny dog's dance is just what the doctor ordered. A quick visit to the Colombian singer's page will fill you up with joy, as he boasts various aww-worthy puppy posts.
