best in show

I, myself, am a cat person, but that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to dogs. In fact, I love every animal on this planet. Perhaps it was The Westminster Kennel Club’s annual Dog Show having taken place this week or the handful of dog-themed treasures I found for the shop last weekend. Whatever it is, I have dogs on the brain.

I have to admit, I didn’t watch the Dog Show this year, but I did spend plenty of time ogling the contestants online. Here’s some of my favorite pooches (that I want to smooches!):
