The picture should be replaced with Winnie and Dennis from Hotel Transylvania 2, they are a literal case of Puppy Love

The trope is not about literal puppies, so that image would be misleading.

they are young and are in love, the fact that the girl just looks like a puppy just adds to that

Perfect picture with caption "I think you are taking it a bit too literally"

Discussions on image changes/additions/removals go to the Image Pickin' threads in the forums.

Also note that literal examples are not just "not good," they're actually frowned upon for being misleading.

Now that was completely unnecessary. Please be aware that mean-spirited comments, especially those that are caused merely by disagreements, are frowned upon.

A lot of these examples are just people shipping. this doesn't fly.

It still needs to be cleaned out of those.

I don't think this is YMMV if two children in a work are an official couple.

I don't get that either. Isn't this about canon couples or implied crushes, not fanon?

Well now in the repair shop they're talking about splitting the trope into an objective one and one just for shipping. It sure is taking them a long time to finally do it though.

Just use the [[Invoked]] tag for in-universe uses.

Considering PS238, there may be two other examples of this trope. One concerns Ambriel, the Guardian Angel, and Vern, the "Messiah-level" healer that raised her from the dead. After that event, Ambriel took an interest in Vern, like dragging him out of the school during the alien invasion so he could help with the wounded. Ambriel told Vern that her guardian would protect him because "it" liked him. Ambriel also seemed interested enough in Vern that she mentions him and his transfer to another school during her report.

The second involved Kevin, the "Emerald Gauntlet" (Jr.), and Alexandra Von Fogg, the daughter of one of the world's most dangerous criminal masterminds. In issue #41, there seemed to be a chemistry between them that could be described as a budding toy ship, but would more of the "slap, slap, kiss, kiss" kind.

After reviewing the PS 238 entry to this trope, I think it is also important to make a distinction between Tyler and his alter ego, Moon Shadow. While Julie happily and knowingly gave Tyler her blood so her white blood cells could fight the alien virus in his body, the other two instances mentioned involved Tyler in his Moon Shadow persona and Julie doesn't know they are one in the same. Therefore, it may be possible that Julie has a crush on Moon Shadow (fairly obvious considering her reaction to Moon Shadow's liking her new outfit in issue #42), but only considers Tyler a good friend.

So that would make the Flying Brick character The Lois Lane? Ooh, irony.

The image pic should be from Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. The two preschool lovers are on a literal Toy Ship.
