If you think that Tank (1 year, male) is cute in these pictures, you cannot even begin to imagine the mind-melting cuteness that is Tank in person. There’s a pretty good chance that, when I die, it will be as a result of seeing a dog as cute as Tank (assuming there are any more as cute as Tank) across a busy street, just disappearing into a building, and trying to cut across the street fast enough to get a some pictures. Or just a few smooches.
But not this time! This time I was not, in fact, run over. And I did collect smooches. And pictures.
(Incidentally, I am aware that Tank looks an awful lot like a shiba inu. I am not going to second-guess his mom, though. And I admit, I have never, ever seen a shiba inu that was as delighted to see me as Tank was.)
