Sometimes when your spouse leaves you with nothing but an empty, white-walled house and the dog, you take that opportunity to reconnect with your creativity (or sometimes you don’t). In this case, that is exactly what Rafael Mantesso, a Brazilian restaurant owner and food editor did when he took to Instagram to share playful illustrations involving his trusty sidekick, a bull terrier named Jimmy Choo. The resulting images are as humorous as they are heartwarming — just the thing for a mid-week pick-me-up!
