21 Adorable Photos of Puppies Vanquishing Very Evil Foes

Enemies beware.

As humans, we think we're safer when we're surrounded by inanimate objects. But puppies know better. These descendants of the mighty wolf know that something as seemingly innocent as a doorstop or a very large zucchini is actually an evil presence lurking among us, cleverly disguised as an everyday object.

Luckily, our canine companions always manage to protect us, and they don't even expect any thanks in return. That's just what they're here for. So read on to see puppies take on their greatest enemies yet, from ice cubes to cherries.
