Labor Day Weekend is the symbolic end of the summer, the time of year when beaches begin shuttering their shores and bitter screeds about Summer Fridays go the way of the dodo. The long weekend provides the chance for a moment of reflection for millions of overworked, underpaid, Simpsons-marathoning Americans. Or you could be like us, and just watch a bunch of videos of curious police horses licking, nuzzling, and generally being adorable with dogs.

LOOK AT HOW THE PUPPY BOWS BEFORE THE HORSE GOD.

WAS IT LOVE AT FIRST SNIFF? IT WAS.

WHOSE LEG DO WE HAVE TO HUMP TO GET A HORSE TO CLEAN US?

THIS IS TRULY THE GREATEST LABOR DAY WEEKEND TRADITION.

Anyway, may the last lick of summer lather you in the slobber of true love.
