Just when we thought that our obsession with Downton Abbey took first prize, the Internet comes and blows our minds.
The Guardian
brought our attention to a painting collection of cats and dogs depicted as our favorite period drama characters. Think Daisy Mason as a chihuahua and John Bates as a pit bull terrier.

The assemblage is aptly named "Houndton Tabby," which is so adorable, we almost want to blub (that's a DA reference for cry, whine, or blubber). So, if you have any fans on your holiday gift list this year, you can purchase the paintings on the artist's Etsy site, Toadbriar. Personally, we're putting in our request for Lady Mary Crawley as a borzoi. (The Guardian)
