First, we fell in love with the unromantically named Pup 681, a 5-week-old sea otter now living at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium. And now we swoon as the adorable pup starts to learn to swim.

Spoiler alert: it's the cutest thing ever!

Aquarium employees observe her as she floats on her back, and poke her stomach as if she were the Pillsbury Doughboy. 

She slowly starts to fall asleep while cradled in one employee's arms while he pets her fuzzy, webbed feet. 

The sea otter is definitely our new favorite animal thanks to Pup 681, and it seems like others would agree — since Shedd Aquarium posted the video on YouTube, it has already amassed more than 1 million views. See more pictures of the little lady here.
