At any given moment, a glance at the news can put a damper on even the best of days. Sometimes it seems as if the world has gone mad and nothing makes sense anymore.

CORRECTION: nothing makes sense anymore EXCEPT for this beautiful little pooch having his picture taken at a baseball game. Trying to get a perfect shot, the dog's owner gave him a hot dog to hold in his mouth and, because he is a very good boy, the dog managed to resist eating it long enough for the man to snap a great shot.


The entire process gave us this soul-lifting GIF, which was posted to Reddit by SeattleMana:

And if you're wondering how the photo turned out, don't worry. It was incredible.


The GIF was originally posted in the Facebook group Dogspotting, where people can share pictures and videos of dogs they see out in public. The poster was eventually able to track down the pup's owner and get this comment:

I live in Seattle and every summer our baseball team (go Mariners!) has a 'bark in the park' night where DOGS GET TO GO TO THE GAME WITH THEIR HUMANS 📷🚨 THIS IS NOT A DRILL AND OFFICIALLY MY BEST SPOT YET.

The internet was living for the GIF and the resulting photo, though they weren't sure how to feel about a real dog eating a hot dog...



Also, a dog in a hat will always be popular online!



It's our honor to officially name this hot dog-holding Golden Retriever the best boy of the day!

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
