Never before have I seen an image of such a thoughtful, brooding, sopping wet canine.

Was his heart just broken by the most popular girl in puppy training school? Did he catch a glimpse of an old buddy from the pound in a Sarah McLachlan ASPCA commercial? Is this the cover of Nicholas Sparks's new novel for dogs? Could it be Kanye West's new album cover?

This gorgeous portrait certainly leaves more questions than answers. All we know is this photo was posted by redditor littlemissuse with the appropriate caption, "This dog about to drop the hottest album of 2015." I would definitely buy that album.
