Dogs grow up pretty fast. One day they’re a pup chewing on your sneaker, and the next thing you know they’re a fully grown pooch and, well, still chewing on your sneaker. So in order to preserve that precious period of fleeting transition, one Imgur user named Bengemm uploaded pictures of a German Shepherd’s transition into adulthood with nine adorable photographs. Needing something for scale, their owner chose the most obvious growth indicator they could think of, namely a bottle of Sriracha hot sauce. Obviously. The pictures have already been viewed more than 140k times, and it’s easy to see why.
