Newfoundlands are the best dogs, and I'm not just saying that because I've grown up with them my whole life. I'm saying that because of photos like this one. I don't know what this looks like to you, but to me, it is very clear that Humphrey farted and then the wind accidentally blew it right into his face. His furry, drooling, adorable face.

Look, Matilda has had a hard life. She was found on the streets and rescued by some wonderful humans. And even though she has a great life now, sometimes she just has to sit and think for a while. She's too much.
