A Puppy With A Brilliant Moustache Marking Is Up For Adoption
It goes without saying that dogs are the best and all else in this world pales in comparison. But just when you thought dogs couldn't get anymore perfect, one turns up with a fantastic flipping 'tache.
Better still, the incredible five-week old pup is up for adoption and is currently being kept in a foster home in Dallas, USA, with her mother and 10 siblings.
The mixed puppy's unusual, curved black upper lip marking has earned her the name Salvador Dolly, after the famously and similarly 'tached artist Salvador Dali - though lord knows why they didn't go with Salvador Doggy.
Arguably, you could say the pup's 'tache isn't quite as extreme and pointy as Dali's. Maybe it's more like Hercule Piorot's. Or the guy on the Pringles tube. Or maybe Borat. Charles Bronson?
...To be fair, there are few among us who would name our dog after Charles Bronson (though I bet some would).
But we wouldn't even be able to discuss whether the dog bears more of a resemblance to Britain's most notorious prisoner or a cartoon on a crisp tube had she and her family not been rescued from the streets on 10 July - which highlights the vital work of shelters in saving the lives of beautiful dogs across the globe.

Salvador Borat Bronson Poirot Pringles will be heading to New York in late August/early September where she will be sent to foster homes until she finds her 'forever home'.
Allison Seelig, vice president of marketing at Hearts & Bones Rescue, said: "Moustache Puppy is absolutely adorable and we're so happy we were able to rescue her and her family.
"It's puppy season in Dallas right now and there are always multiple mums with litters at the shelter.
"We try to get as many out as we can because neither mums nor their babies are available for adoption while they're nursing, and the risk of young puppies getting sick in the shelter environment is very high.
"Our mama and her 11 babies were found as strays and lived in the shelter in Dallas for over two weeks."
She continued: "We went to meet them last week and were able to find an incredible foster in Dallas who was willing to take the entire family in.
"The whole family is now relaxing in a comfy and safe home and getting medical care and monitoring until the puppies are old enough to be weaned.
"We'll be sending the whole family to New York for adoption in late August/early September, where they'll go into foster homes until they find their forever families."
Whoever it is out there who ultimately gets their hands on Salvador Borat Bronson Poirot Pringles, I think I speak for all of us when I say I am immensely jealous.
