When the Milwaukee Brewers adopted the stray dog that was hanging around their Arizona spring training camp, named him Hank and brought him back to Milwaukee, you had to know this moment was coming.

On Thursday, the Brewers finally got Hank the Dog, the most famous canine in baseball, in a room with his namesake — the great Hank Aaron, who played 12 seasons with the Milwaukee Braves, then finished his career as a Milwaukee Brewer.

Hank the Dog didn't hit 44 homers this season like Hammerin' Hank did so many times, but the pup is having a pretty good year. He went from being homeless to having a doghouse inside an MLB stadium, thousands of fans and even a stuffed likeness.

Out of all the cutesy things the Brewers have organized this year in the name of Hank, this one picture might be the best.
