Daily Dose of Cute

Dudley is tall. Very tall. He's so tall that Zelda, who is a 60-pound dog, can casually stroll beneath his belly barely having to duck. When they play together, she is a swirling streak of shiny black fur as she does figure-8s between his legs, weaving away from his reach as he tries to grab the toy clutched in her jaws.

Dudley is also long. Very long. One of his favorite passive-aggressive maneuvers is to stand sideways in front of me, his long flank blocking anyone else from reaching me, while I deliver the requested affection.

But the thing is, he's tall. So Zelda has found a way to thwart him.

Irresistibly cute.
