Open up and say, "Awwwwwww..."

Guys! It's a two-year-old girl giving a medical exam to a an extremely docile bull terrier! How is this not on the front page of the New York Times? I realize that there are biker brawls, incidents of international terrorism and presidential primaries to deal with, but come on! Surely they could have made room for a little girl playing with her pet! It doesn't have to be at the top of the page. Somewhere below the fold is fine.

I mean, did the New York Times editorial staff into make it to the part where the toddler puts her stethoscope up to her patient's chest and the dog looks off into the distance with a countenance of utter serenity and acceptance? They must not have, because if they did, I'm pretty sure this would have knocked "Fall of Ramadi to ISIS Highlights Iraqi Premier's Weakening Authority" onto page two.


You see? This is why traditional journalism is dying.
