Stop What You’re Doing: You Need to See This Pomeranian Dressed as Paddington Bear

It’s Tuesday. You’re tired. The next three-day weekend is weeks away and there’s no more coffee in the office kitchen. Luckily, a photo of a Pomeranian dressed as Paddington Bear graced the internet with its presence this weekend and, obviously, it’s a must-see.

Meet Bertram (Bertie Bert if you’re nasty), the 5-year-old chocolate Pomeranian who looks exactly like Paddington Bear.

Bertie Bert can often be found donning costumes or hustling at the New York City art gallery he claims to work at (we have our reservations). He shared the photo of his new getup with his 182,000 (!) Instagram followers and captioned it, “So my Halloween costume arrived a few months early. [Though it] makes a pretty fun fetch toy for now,” proving that dog fashion can be multifunctional.

Look out, Doug the Pug. You have some major competition.
