Just look at this face!

Yep, I’m a puppy and am always happy!

Everyone is always sniffing!
Just lounging around…
So many dogs, so little time. I think a yawn is in order…
Pet me more please!
Wait! That’s not a Pyr!

Big Butt, Little Butt!
You don’t mind if I sniff your face, do you?
There’s enough water for both of us…
Victoria, loving yet another Pyr!

We’re all ready now!

I wonder if this is what entanglement is?
