Don’t freak out, but today marks 12 years since we met Cady, Karen, Gretchen Weiners, and Regina George. And while we still haven’t figured out exactly who or what Glen Coco truly is (is he a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream?), there’s no denying that any chance to celebrate Mean Girls — one of the best teen comedies of the past several decades — is a good one. But what do you do when almost everything’s been done, including a Jingle Bell Rock routine performed by four dudes at their high school’s variety show?
You bring in the dogs. But not just any dogs. Dogs dressed as the film’s iconic characters, captioned with the film’s most iconic lines. Yep, that includes a corgi dressed as Amy Poehler’s character — “I’m a cool mom” — a mutt claiming “she doesn’t go here” and a particularly large dog pretending to be a mouse (wonder if he has ESPN?).

Okay, so maybe that pink smock-looking thing that one dog is wearing is unflattering enough that Regina George might ask you where you got it — never a good sign — but the fact that four puppies stood still in Santa costumes long enough for a photo to be taken? That deserves at least four candy grams (and none for Gretchen Weiners, bye!).
