When your dog is bigger than a car
Big dog owners — by which I mean the owners of big dogs — are all too familiar with the comments people come up with when encountering their extra large pets.
“That’s a big dog” is probably the most common, not to mention the most obvious. (Hint: We already know that.)
Then there’s, “You could ride that thing.”
And, of course, “Who’s walking who?”
“How much does he weigh?” they invariably ask. “How much does he eat?”
Often, too, they will ask, “Is he friendly?” Usually he will have made that clear himself before I get the answer out.
Then there are the those who show a little extra imagination: “What’s he a mix of – retriever and Buick?”
Repeated DNA tests have shown no Buick in his blood, just four breeds that — if you must know — you can use our search function to find out.
This post deals only with his size — and provides photographic proof that, yes, he is bigger than a car.
True, it’s a Smart Car, and true, he’s in the foreground. Maybe it’s not as incontrovertible as DNA evidence. But there it is, right before your eyes.
And as for the owner of that little car, allow me to ask, “How much does it weigh? How much gas does it eat? Can you ride that thing?
“And is it friendly?”
