Just call them the three musketeers. Or the three amigos. They’re a triple threat of cuteness, and three’s most definitely company.
But can something this cute really exist? Or is this trio of French bulldogs too good to be true?
Yup: Happy April Fools’ Day!
U.K.-based dog photographer Rhian White captures Ralph the French bulldog jumping for joy – the pooch did trick you, after all! – at an England beach.
Thanks to some impressive freeze-framing and, presumably, some equally nifty photo editing, we were fooled, too.
But that probably wasn’t the photographer’s intent. “My aim is to capture within a photograph the pure enjoyment a dog has doing what he or she loves doing the most,” White writes on her website. We’d say she succeeded with Ralph.
