  3. Mikeyfur says:

    I love these two so much! Hessel and Hannes you brought much happiness today.

  4. How do we get the photographer of this picture to become president of the USA? or the Pope? or the Queen of England? or supreme ruler over everything…

  5. Wow, looking at these pics the best start to a work day EVER! Love these two, and hopefully we’ll see more of them.

  6. Well, I don’t like these pics because they do not include me snorgling those two lovebugs! 🙂
    They are just the sweetest bestest friends evar.
