Congress is a ruff place to work sometimes.
This is not a lawmaker's puppy. It's a bonus puppy!

Congress can't agree on much, but one thing it's doggone sure about is that puppies are great. 

Lawmakers stopped barking at each other about policy differences and celebrated National Puppy Day on Wednesday by unleashing photos of their favorite four-legged friends on social media.

Don Stewart, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), is a well-known dog enthusiast who shares photos of pups on Instagram with the hashtag #StewMeetsDogs. Loving dogs is a "bipartisan experience," he said.

"Dogs make people happier," he added. 

After throwing a bone to bipartisanship, lawmakers will no doubt be back to furry-ious fighting soon.
