Meet Flambo, the newest adorable sports dog

This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week.


There's a long and glorious history of very good sports dogs, both fictional and real-ish. That exclusive club got an adorable new addition on Wednesday, thanks to the NHL's Montreal Canadiens. 

Meet Flambo, the Canadiens' new foster puppy, an adorable floof of sweet majesty, the kind of dog fit for one the most storied franchises in all of professional sports. 

The team even gave insight into how they chose his name. Whether Flambo can lead the Canadiens any higher up the division standings remains to be seen, but it's still early in the season. 

Just look at that face! It simultaneously says, "BLEP" but also whispers, "I know your troubles and just remember that time heals all wounds, but the scars are reminders of time gone by." 

Flambo is more than an adorable face; he'll be something of a mascot for the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation, one of the Canadiens' charitable outreach organizations.

We don't know exactly what Flambo will be doing (the Foundation did not respond to our requests for comment), but chances are it'll be something to do with lifting the spirits of children in need. We can't think of anyone better suited for that than this fuzzy face. 

Finally, we know Flambo is VERY HANDSOME. But is he, indeed, a VERY GOOD BOY?

That'll do, Flambo, that'll do.
