Donal Skehan’s dog, Max, apparently thought their family photos needed a little more bite to them.
Skehan, an Irish TV chef, food writer, photographer and YouTuber who recently relocated from Dublin to Los Angeles with his pregnant wife, Sofie Larsson, decided to take a trip to San Francisco this past weekend with his parents. While there, they took a series of family photos in front of the city’s “painted ladies,” a row of colorful Victorian-style houses that have appeared in dozens of ads, movies and TV shows, including in the opening credits of “Full House.”
All was well until Max got a little too excited for one of the shots, in which Skehan and his parents simultaneously jumped into the air. Max also jumped -- right into the crotch of Skehan’s father … with his teeth.
“And this is the moment our family portrait went all WRONG!” he wrote.
He said that Max, who adores his father, got a little too excited.
“Puts a whole new meaning on ‘crotch shot!’” Skehan wrote. “Does anyone have any ice?”
The reaction to the photo was immediate.
“This is by far the best thing I’ve seen on Insta this month,” one person wrote.
“A sentence I never thought I’d have to write, but @maxskehan and my dad’s crotch are having a little moment on the internet!” Skehan wrote on Facebook.
He assured his followers, however, that his father was not injured in the incident, which he took to calling #crotchgate.
“I can safely report that Max and Dad are still best of pals,” Skehan wrote. “My dad would like it pointed out that he was wearing low-crotched shorts and that Max has a very gummy bite and that the family jewels are all still intact!”
“The Christmas cards are gonna look great this year,” he wrote. “Family photo gold.”
Skehan said Wednesday that he, his wife and his parents are still laughing about the photo.
He said, however, that Max is used to getting attention. The rescue pup has his own Instagram page and features in many of the videos on Skehan’s YouTube channel, some of which are posted below.

Dale Delrosario posted a photo of his mother chowing down on some corn on the cob while the two were watching a movie on Monday.
"Some people sneak candy into the movie theater. My mom sneaks in corn on the cob," Delrosario wrote on Twitter.
Delrosario said he wasn't expecting his mother to bring plastic containers with the food into the theater.
"She whispered in my ear, 'You want some corn?' I was like, 'From where, Mom?' and she showed me," he wrote.
While Delrosario captured photos of the scene, the savvy mother avoided evidence in the form of stains; she ate with a makeshift bib.
With a blue cotton candy cone in hand and spun sugar on her face, a little girl at a Seattle Mariners game had the perfect reaction to a Seattle win -- with the help of sugar.
Her photos and GIFs have gone viral, with people calling her Cotton Candy Girl.
Somebody isn't going to sleep anytime soon.Posted by Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, September 7, 2016

Cotton Candy Girl's father shared a photo her sleeping on the way home from the game, saying, "Beatrix sleeps the deep and satisfied slumber of (a Mariners) victory!"
An Oregon teenager has gained lots of attention online after posting a photo of her school ID card.
June Kyra Dela Chica, 17, used makeup to mimick the likeness of The Matchmaker, the character who deems Mulan an unfit wife at the beginning of the first movie in the series.
Dela Chica, a senior at Aloha High School in Beaverton, Oregon, said she had been waiting since her freshman year to take the creative ID picture, according to KPTV.
She also said a photographer was skeptical of taking her photo when she sat down with her made-up face.
"Once the makeup was on, I moved my way to the pictures station and lined up,” Dela Chica told Buzzfeed. "One of the ladies was very open-minded and laughed. The other lady -- who was actually taking my photo -- was very grumpy and rude. I remember her saying, 'I don’t know if you can take this photo. Are the admins okay (with it)?'"
"I replied with, 'The admins said if I'm okay with showing my face like this to hundreds of people then go on ahead. And if it's really that bad, I can always retake it,'" Dela Chica said. "She shrugged and replied with a simple, 'Okay.'"
The teenager, who said she normally doesn't get much attention on social media, has had her tweet of the Disney-inspired ID favorited more than 200,000 times.
"I tried really hard to do something I haven't seen anyone else do. I guess this was it," she said, adding that her school has her previous ID pictures on file if they need a better one and that she would take a more professional photo if asked by school officials.
