You know, I didn't think Tyge could possibly become cuter in my eyes, and then you posted this picture...and I saw his cute, little nubbin tail....and now I might die from cuteness overload.

Not sure if he was guarding the house, or planning a break to Kibble Are Us! But he certainly does give a whole new outlook to that famous folklore bit about _________ (insert name of some African American athlete, often Reggie Jackson) getting into the crowded elevator with his large pooch, etc. etc.

Awwwww. How cute!

I'm not so good at "scale" things, but it looks as if it take all three of our dogs to get anywhere close to his size.

But that old jingle for Buster Brown shoes (do they still exist? Way before your time, Pooh) keeps running through my head ...

RIA, Tyge is about 4 feet long (and about 4 feet wide) and weighs 99.9 lbs.

Pop, I don't think I remember the Reggie Jackson story to which you refer.

An elevator is descending for the top floor of a large San Franscico hotel, with a number of people in it. It stops at a somewhat lower floor, and in walks Reggie Jackson with his two huge dobermen's on leashes. Reggie gets in and commands "Sit" whereupon all of the people on the elevator drop to the floor.

This story was actually told at a bar convention meeting years ago, referencing the wife of one of the attending attorneys as having been in the elevator and dropping to the floor. The telling of this story at the dinner/reception led to either an actual law suit, or a threat of a law suit by the woman in question, and, if I recall correctly, there was a financial settlement and an apology issued.

Go figure.

"I went to a bar convention and a lawsuit broke out." Somehow, that earns WATFO status...

I'll bet the stories and jokes at a bartender's convention are better.

Though the lawsuit breaking out is pretty humorous.

(and funny because it's true)

Hey, Pooh, I thought all the Sasquatches lived down here in Washginton State. I didn't know you had them up there in Alaska.

And, the color? OH. MY. EYES!
