This Children’s Hospital Just Pulled the Cutest April Fools’ Prank

The precious pups started posting on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook on Wednesday, April 1, as they went about their therapy dog duties. We think the stunt is pretty (p)awesome.

Check out some of the shenanigans they’ve been up to in the photos below:
