“When you’re smiling, keep on smiling,” Louis Armstrong used to sing. “The whole world smiles with you.”

Although she probably hasn’t been spinning any vintage jazz records, Cinnamon the Shiba Inu seems to have figured that out. Despite having glaucoma, this week’s Instagram sensation has a grin that’s almost as big as her cuddly 30-pound body.

“When she first started living with me I thought she was the cutest dog and always had her smile on,” owner Ashley Kroop told ABC News. “It just seemed like a natural fit for the world to see her smile.”

And Cinnamon’s perma-smile has melted the Internet’s heart. According to Kroop, the 11-year-old pup, is actually panting instead of grinning (and we’ve made that same expression at every backyard BBQ we’ve ever attended), but that doesn’t make her any less adorable. And when Kroop gets married later this summer, Cinnamon will be serving as the happiest-looking flower girl that New York state has ever seen.

“She’s the best dog I’ve ever known,” Kroop said.

No one has ever been this excited to be in a cab.

A television marathon wears us out, too.

Don’t tell her, but we can totally see her.

Cinnamon had a more romantic Valentine’s Day than we did.

Cinnamon, your paper gown will open in the back.

C’mon, give this dog a real hug.

Note that this is the one picture where she’s really not smiling.
