This is Rico, or as we like to call him Pinche Poochador... it's a term of endearment, I swear!
He is the most handsome and most intelligent dog you will ever meet. He is the king of our neighborhood. No walk to the mailboxes with this canine wonder doesn't elicit a response from everyone walking by...
"He's soooo cute!" (Ummm yeah we have eyes, therefore we already know this, but thanks.)
"What breed of dog is he? His coat is gorgeous!" (Our answer to the breed question is Awesome, because it's a fact.)
"Oooooh!" (Accompanied with that squishy face people reserve for babies and this most adorable of dogs.)
"Awwwww man I just want to hug your dog. He's the most precious." (Editor's note: We do NOT recommend attempting to hug Rico without his explicit permission. He is fast, like superhero fast, and you'll never catch him.)
He brings us tons and tons of joy AND we can blame all farts on him, so that's handy. (Editor's Note: If Rico, in fact, farts you will KNOW IT because it will be silent and the foulest stench you've ever experienced... BUT it rarely happens so if we say it was Rico, it was probably us.)
We are currently in the market for a Rico-sized bow-tie since he will be serving as King of Adorability at the wedding.
