In case you feel like dying of cute today, One Direction are in Wonderland magazine. With puppies. That sound you just heard was about 10 million hearts exploding.

The boys, sporting their preppiest best, snuggle with pups in a photo spread for Wonderland's Obsessed issue (appropriately enough, right?), due out on Nov. 8. They each don striped button downs under sweaters: Zayn Malik has blue (striking against his eyes), Niall Horan rocks mauve, Louis Tomlinson with green, Liam Payne with orange and Harry Styles with pale pink. (Yes, we are dying.)

In the accompanying interview (quotes via ONTD), Liam Payne reveals that there's more to 1D than Directioners realize.

“I think there’s a lot of things that the fans don’t know about us. I think our relationship doesn't really play out as much as people think," he said. “People still ask whether we really get on or not, and we genuinely do. A lot of people don’t believe that, they think it’s some fake thing where we have to get on because of the position we’re in. I think for us, the main thing is that we've just kind of been ourselves, that’s what people like. I think a lot of people get into our situation and you hear they've changed, but we've just stayed ourselves.”
Louis concurred, adding, “In the past, with previous boy bands, I think they felt like they had to meet a stereotype. We’re just ourselves -- stupid, immature and quirky.”

In a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, we see the pups snuggling up to the boys in motion -- check out the yawning one being cradled by Hazza. The photos definitely have an elementary school portrait vibe to them, and we think that's the point -- the guys know their demographic, and it's so cheesily charming and sweet. We seriously can't pick out the most adorable thing about these shots. For once, Harry Styles' dimples face some stiff (and canine) competition.

This isn't the first time the super cute Brits have been paired up with super cute pups. Back in March, the 'Live While We're Young' singers played with puppies onstage at a St. Patrick's Day radio performance. We can't. We just can't.
