Sukey, Guide Dog In Training, Wants To Help 9-Year-Old Boy With His Sudoku (PHOTO)

When dogs and babies grow up, their irresistible public displays of affection may mature -- but remain adorable.

In this photo, for instance, the noble beast on the left is Sukey, a guide dog in training who came to Reddit user ihavecooties through Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc., in Palmetto, Fla. She has a documented affinity for young people, older folks, pillow pets, and expressions that prove "puppy dog eyes" are a genuine phenomenon.

Here, Sukey helpfully looks over a new friend's Sudoku.
