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.
