I don't think there's anything in this world that could be cuter than these little pups. I love how they all look so innocent and curious. With so many to choose from, it would be really difficult to just choose one. Don't they just make your heart melt a little?…

I start reading "Too fat to fish"(Artie Lange).
I have never heard of him in my country before.
