Here’s a photo of Carlos and his family’s dog, Coco, but Carlos wants to make sure that readers aren’t fooled by the photo. Carlos writes:

“It’s a bit deceptive. First of all, I am holding her. I’m not sure why I have Coco in my arms. I had no interest in holding Coco and she had no interest in being held. My smile is completely insincere. This must have been taken after she was given a bath because her coat didn’t normally look that clean – it was usually more nappy. She was rattier than this picture suggests. If you put a caption to this, please put something like: Coco, on a good day. I’m sorry she wasn’t looking into the camera because her face was what really did her in, especially her teeth.”
