According to Wikipedia, “Puppy love is an informal term for feelings of love, particularly between young people during adolescence, so-called for its resemblance to the adoring, worshipful affection that may be felt by a puppy.” (wikipedia.org)

This is the kind that we all dream of finding in a mate, or perhaps wish we could hold onto in times of distress. Not many can argue that once you look into the deep caring eyes of your pup all else seems to calm down.
