The perspective on the first 2 pics is pretty awful.

But the rest aren't bad.

I saw him on Good Morning America today, and he is a big ol' love muffin. In addition to parking his butt on the couch like a person, with his front feet still on the floor, he can eat out of the kitchen sink without having to stretch his neck.

I'm glad to see they left his ears and tail intact.

He is gorgeous. I kind of miss having a big dog. If I had the room, and knew for sure there weren't any apartments in my future* I would get one.

*Not only is it difficult to keep a big dog in an apartment, it is almost impossible to get an apartment when you have a big dog.
