The weather can play a massive part in people's moods, and Weather Puppy is an adorable tool that helps to keep people's emotional outlooks a bit sunnier. The app offers up a picture of a puppy with every weather forecast, so users can get a dose of cuteness before they head out to brave the elements.

Weather has a well-documented impact on disposition, from glum malaise and seasonal affective disorder in the winter to the vacillation between testiness and lethargy in the peak of summer. Checking the weather often becomes a proxy for those emotions as well, with forecasts of blizzards or heat waves upsetting people's delicate emotional balance quickly. Since Weather Puppy shows pictures of pups along with every forecast, it makes it easier for people to get over the weather and focus on what's really important: goofy little dogs.
