Much like Patty Hearst in the 70s, this dog has no idea what it has been groomed to do.

Patty Hearst was quite a divisive figure in her time, but I think we can all just shut up for a minute and love this freaking dog. His name is Rocket and he won Best in Group (Toy) at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Yes, he is co-owned by Patty Hearst, who is widely known as the heiress who was kidnapped, brainwashed then imprisoned for armed robbery. But as she told reporters:

"People move on. I guess people somehow imagine you don't evolve in your life. I have grown daughters and granddaughters and other things that normal people have."

Though normal people are usually not co-investors in purebred dogs, she's right. If we're lucky, we go through many stages in life. If we're very lucky, the later stages involve more dog brushing, and less time being a cult figure trapped by an insane terrorist organization.
