Meet the panda puppies

If you're frantically searching for a source of afternoon work procrastination, fret not. These adorable snaps will rise to the task admirably.

The so-called "panda puppies" - puppies with black and white panda-style markings - were pictured this week on the streets of Yancheng city in China's eastern Jiangsu province.

The super-cute pups were born with grey and white fur that turned black and white a few weeks after they were born a month ago.

As far as heart-warming photos go, they are right up there with our selection of dogs in cups and the time we covered the breaking news of a baby sloth dressed up in a onesie.

In fact, as far as time-wasting potential goes, these photos are almost as good as our best viral videos of all time (watch them here if you haven't already).

And while we're on the topic of canines looking like other animals, you may as well take a look at this dog with a tiger makeover. Enjoy and happy Tuesday!
