Fans of the Leafs were impressed watching the boys work like dogs to try and turn their playoff chances around last season. But, behind all that hard work, you’ll find a pack of adorable real-life doggos cheering the team along. And not only are the Toronto Maple Leafs dogs the cutest, but the team is full of proud dog dads, too.\nIn fact, it's the way the Leafs love their pups that really speaks to our Toronto hearts.\nFrom sharing ice cream cones and basking in the sun to baking full-on doggo birthday cakes, Leafs players are serious dog dad goals.\nThe wide range of fluffy cuteness was on show on Thursday, Jan. 9 as the Leafs brought their pups along with them for the first day of their annual outdoor practice at Nathan Phillips Square.\nIf you somehow haven't fallen down that rabbit hole yet, get a load of this wholesome content from that day.\nSo, if you’re in the same boat as us and you simply can't get enough of some of Toronto's most well-known dogs, get ready for some dramatically adorable pictures of the most pawfect pups on the internet and their equally cute doggo daddies.\nBirthday Brunching With Barrie\nView this post on Instagram Keeping it classy with the fellas for my 28th!

We're jealous, to be quite honest.\nBetween Thursday's on-ice dog park and the recent Dog Days Twitter campaign, it seems like the Leafs are always showing off their prized pups.\nAnd honestly, much like the aforementioned recent turnaround in the team's form, we can’t get enough of it.\nA team on the rise and a roster full of dog-lovers? Woof.
