This feature is designed as a counterweight to all the bad news in the world that weighs people down. We could share a photo of a baby, or a photo of a dog, but we are giving you both. How many newspapers can say that? Hannah Aakjar of Cold Spring submitted this shot of her son, Marke, then a week old and now in the first grade at Haldane Elementary, with Gepetto. If you have a photo of a baby and a dog, submit it for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
