Yesterday I saw a sequence of photos on my sister-in-law's (hi Kristine!) facebook that I had to steal and share with you all.
I think this has to be one of the best pictures I've ever seen.* The picture that comes next makes it even better.
left to right: Spike, Bella, my niece Madeline (of the Joseph and Jane Gracey clan), and Boston (of the Sam and Rachelle Gracey clan)
Looks like she decided to go for it.
See what I mean about the overwhelming cuteness?
Well if it's not the right time for a baby yet, I'm definitely going to need a dog.
The breed is Mastiff. Can you honestly say these are not the cutest, most awesome-looking dogs you've ever seen? They're, um, the largest and heaviest breed of dog there is. I won't go into their awesome temperament (how cuddly and attached and non-vicious and loyal they are) and all that, but I want one. Real bad. I'll just have to make sure it doesn't sit on anyone...
*below: possibly the best picture I've ever seen (thanks again to Kristine's facebook).
