One might imagine the inescapable joy, but also terror, of experiencing sunshine and grass for the first time. One might also imagine that joy multiplying many times over if you happen to be a beagle.

The beagles in the above video were let out into a yard full of all the delights of a yard—grass, plants, more grass, OTHER BEAGLES—by Beagle Freedom Project, a non-profit that finds homes for beagles who spent their lives in research labs across America.

While cute, this video also makes a pretty good argument for not using dogs as test subjects!
