Is Gisele trying to soften public opinion on Tom Brady by taking picture of him with his new puppy?

... Because it's working.

It looks like the Brady-Bündchen family has a new member and his name is Scooby. And while Americans supposedly aren't fans of Brady right now, Scooby clearly is -- and that seems like all that matters to Brady in this photo, which Gisele posted on Facebook on Sunday during Memorial Day weekend.

Fans may be protesting the "Deflategate" punishment at Gillette Stadium, but Brady seems carefree.
