Dreams use symbols to portray certain feelings or situations. A puppy is not important itself - its importance is in the words and behavour we associate with it. A puppy is an example of "playfulness" and so a puppy dream could link to any situation or feeling that involves "playfulness" e.g. "my boyfriend has been very playful recently". Puppies can symbolise new relationships which are filling you with happiness. Puppies are very often symbols for flirting - did someone flirt strongly with you yesterday? A puppy may also symbolise any way in which you are enjoying yourself and having fun. Puppies are adoring and adorable creatures? Could they be symbols for someone who adores you?
