Jonathan Toews takes his wonderful small dog fishing

Jonathan Toews: a real man who is a good dog owner.

This time a year ago, Jonathan Toews was joking about having the "least manliest dog" in the NHL.

Well guess what: it's a year later, and character development has occurred.

Real men take their lapdogs fishing.

Maybe the dog still isn't "manly," but that doesn't mean she can't still be man's best friend. He isn't picking her up or carrying her around via a little handle anymore (well, that we know of); no, now she's a loyal and trusted fishing partner.

Besides, it's probably a lot easier to go fishing with a lapdog than with something much bigger. This way she fits nicely into the boat, and is probably well behaved. And aw - the looks Toews is giving her is wonderful. Those two are definitely friends.

Maybe the dog isn't manly, but Toews has got that department covered on his own already.
