Who doesn't love a dog that is doing good? This week's #cutepic winner, @Baloublue, is a therapy pup who brings cheer wherever he goes — including the elderly care homes he visits on a regularly basis, where he comforts the terminally ill, as well as people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's. "Some are so happy and some might cry for the dogs they once owned but these are comforting tears to them because they are hugging me," writes Balou Blue, who lives in Naples, Florida, with his owner Elisabeth. "Squishing my neck rolls is a great therapy for arthritic hands!"

Balou Blue is the brother of @barkleythepom, who sadly passed away in a tragic accident last year. He was one of the first canines to gain fame via social media. "He met Cesar Millan, was in a Meghan Trainor video 'Lips are Movin' and made lots of funny videos," Balou Blue tells PEOPLE. "He was my idol, my alpha boss and I loved him so much."

GUY ON THE GO
When this cute face isn't bringing cheer, it's bringing attention to animal rescue. "I work with lots of different rescues and shelters, locally and online, trying to help spread the word of adoption and raise monies for the fantastic people who care for dogs in need," he says, "because all of us dogs everywhere deserve a forever family and a home."

DONUT WORRY, BE HAPPY
This sweetness is contagious! "Most of all I love to hang with other dogs at the dog park!" he says. "At home I like to check my Insta feed like a human. (I love to watch dog videos!)"

While chasing balls and hanging by the pool are among this pup's favorite things to do, nothing beats turning a frown upside-down. "[I] am absolutely only about the love, sharing it with all dogs and humans I meet, which makes me the perfect therapy dog," he says. "It's amazing how [the elderly folks] may not remember much but their faces light up when they see me and some will even remember my name! I love to see them."
