Spotted on The Facebooks: “Look at this adorable puppy! His name is Norman, and he’s a 12 week old Bernese Mountain Dog.” – Photo & comments by The Furrtographer. (Just voted Best Pet Photographer In The Bay Area—-again!)











  1. he is so cute, I seen one once when I was walking inside this fence, a long time ago, and I asked the lady is that a Burmese mountain dog, she was surprised that I even knew what it was, they are very hairy but beautiful. love their markings.

  2. I’m sure you all already know that The Furrtographer won Best Pet Photographer in SF for 2014 but if you didn’t…..

  3. Absolutely delicious and worth every penny of his food bill when he is fully grown!!

  4. Dat pink nose spot…

  5. Dog Lover says:

    Seriously, CO, what are you trying to do to me??? How am I supposed to get anything done today except stare into Norm’s soul-stealing eyes, drool and fantasize about belleh rubs and snorgling? How, I ask? How???? 🙂

  6. @Maggie: Congrats to The Furrtographer- added info!

  7. @DogLover: We do what we gotta do.

    Oh, those Good N Plenty toebeans!

  9. He is so cute!!!!

  10. Consupergratulations, Josh! Oh and, ermergherd kyert flerffer Nermern!

  11. Maybe I’m the only weird one that saw this but…. in the photo where Norman is showing off his belly, does anyone else see the “other” doggy (upside down with his paws over his head)? 🙂

  12. I would love a Norman, but would need to get a bigger house, lot, backyard, shovel, etc. etc. 😉

  13. Seems to me from picture 2 we need a new cuteness rule about teeny-tiny-no-good-for-biting teeth! Those eetle-weetle-baby-teef serve no purpose other than making me want to feel their ineffectual scraping on my finger during a wrestle!

  14. I love Norman! The furtographer is wonderful! 🙂

  15. Smartypants says:

    Yay Josh! Well deserved.

  16. Thanks everyone. I believe they are announcing the results this Friday though. That said, I think I’m in first place 🙂

  17. I want to squeeze those big thick paws! He is adorable. And ‘Norm’ is a great name for a dog.

  18. I want to take him home and give him all the love in the world!

  19. Joshamundo! Congarats, but none of us were really surprised cuz you are the best!

  20. @Anna, I don’t know Anna, that’s a “stretch” 😆

  21. He is so cute and adorable! I’ve always wanted a Bernese Mountain Dog! These pictures make me want a puppy even more. This made my day! I’m so happy this showed up on my reader. Thank you for posting this!

  22. Reblogged this on Lamprophonic Thoughts and commented:
    So, I saw this on my reader and was instantly reminded of psych 101. My teacher said that there was a study where students were shown pictures of puppies and there were students who weren’t shown any pictures. The students who were shown the pictures of puppies did better on the test than the students who weren’t shown the pictures. So, I hope this post cheered up your day like it did mine 🙂

  23. Ack – the cuteness. It hurts! (And congrats to the well-deserved).

  24. Pretty sure Norman is my dog. So grateful you found the little scamp. Now, kindly returns him to me. Thx

  25. Photo 6 would make a fantastic painting (maybe oil based). I would like to see photos of Norm when he is fully grown.

  26. I love Bernese Mountain Dogs! They are so beautiful!!

    That velvety belly! Those liquid brown eyes! Quick, take him away before I eat hims up!!!

  28. I just LOVE him! Patty Spitler from Pet Pals TV in Indianapolis, IN would just totally barf rainbows!
    Her dog Louie is a Bernese!

  29. Hey, Josh “Furrtographer” Norem—Congrats on your first place! I voted for you, too!
