Aya Sakai: Tasuku and Muu

If you are feeling blue this Monday, these pictures of a Tokyo-based boy and his best friend will make it all better.

There's only one thing that can remedy the statistically-proven most miserable day of the year, and that's a photograph of a tiny Japanese boy and his best friend, a French bulldog. Tokyo-based mum Aya Sakai has taken hundreds of kawaii pictures of Tasuku and Muu as they go about their daily business. Make sure you keep checking in; this Instagram account will make it all better until spring arrives.
