The Big Cute

What’s not to love?

Aren’t they adorable?

We saw an adult version this morning occupying the entire back of a pick up truck.
The owner, a woman about our age, was taking her dog to work, and as she used to berth a boat here, the Manager has allowed her to park her car and walk her dog to the relevant workplace just around the corner.

How can you not love a face like this? Full of personality and soppiness.

This gentle giant stepped out of the truck and ambled over to say hello.
Coming almost to my waist, he was a leaner, and I could bury my hands completely in his fur. With feet like dinner plates and weighing in at over 11 stone (154lbs/ 70kg) he dwarfed Maggie who was sulking having been left in the car.

This is a Leonberger.
And his work?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
