• Sheer happiness

• A preoccupation with food

Case in Point: One day as I bent down to retrieve the morning paper; my neighbor's new puppy came barreling toward me with absolutely no strategy for stopping, knocking my pajama-clad self right to the ground.
I fell, and I fell hard, both literally and figuratively. It was a coup de coeur aka instant crush, and since nary a space on my face was dry by the time his harried owner pulled him off of me, I’d say the feeling was mutual. (Dogs are so easily impressed.)
Drunk on oxytocin-releasing baby dog love—maybe happiness really is a warm puppy.
