The Bark Knight: Batman logo appears on Boston dog’s ass


As we all know, heroes can be found in the most unexpected of places. After all, Jesus’s visage regularly appears in such mundane things as a piece of toast and window panes, so we’re pretty sure anything’s up for some flash-in-the-pan religious phenomena. And now that the superhero is becoming one of our guiding cultural mythos, why wouldn’t the Batman symbol appear on a dog’s ass?

Sure enough, I am become Death frontman Kyle Neeson discovered yesterday that a Rottweiler pup under his care named Nina might be sneaking about as the Caped Crusader.

And, much like yesterday, the internet decided to stare intensely at a full moon.


“She’s not the hero we need,” writes Neeson on Instagram, “but the hero we deserve.”

While she may not be Ace the Bat-Hound, though there is a striking resemblance, Nina certainly is a good pup who’s been graced with the same kind of marking in the same place as many a now-regretful nerd after a night of drinking. She’ll also probably be wearing the Bat-Symbol long after Ben Affleck hangs up the cowl too.

Good girl, Nina. Good girl.
