Joyful animals

OK so using a word such as joy may be very anthropomorphic: but I thought it would be cool if people wanted to share pictures / clips of animals that seem to be enjoying life!

Here's a clip that I found that sums up the joy that the first snow of the year can bring:

I think it is not anthropomorphic to interpret very basic emotions to animals. If you start saying your cat can do quadratic equations, then I might start to worry. But I have seen too much joy, satisfaction, boredom and worry on the animals in my life to think that for some reason our spoken language abilities make human animals more able to experience emotional states than can the nonhuman animals, who simply cannot communicate them to us except through their body language.
