Posted by Whiskers101 on

There are certain facts in this world that are indisputable: Peanut butter belongs with jelly, Tom will never stop chasing Jerry and all puppies are adorable.

Just take a look at this seven-week-old yellow Labrador retriever <a href=";">chosen by New York Islanders players</a> Thomas Hickey and Matt Martin for the team’s <a href="">Puppy with a Purpose partnership</a> with Guide Dog Foundation.

As part of the initiative, the male Lab will spend the next 14 months learning socialization skills with the Islanders, while being trained to aid a child who is blind or visually impaired.

“A few people fell in love with the one we picked,” Martin told <a href="">the Islanders website</a>. “I’m excited to see him grow.”
