Proud Monty.




Were he human, he would have been giving a speech. "Stiffen the sinews, summon-up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage, etc, etc".

He really does fancy himself as someone to reckon with; a Prince amongst dogs. I suppose that's why we love him so (in reality, he's something of a scaredy-dog wuss).

Any more observations about his unknown fathering would be welcome (we do know his Mum was a Lab'). Great Dane is still a popular suggestion.

  11. Labs are such a happy and noble breed who cares about the rest. Love that look on his face.

  12. Could be Great Dane. He's got the coloring and gentle look about his face and eyes that reminds me of a Golden Retriever, too. Whatever his parentage, he's a real beauty.

    1. He weighs over 40 kgs; not sure of his height (or even how I would measure him). He's a BIG boy.

  16. Were you lying on the ground to take that photo? I think he's saying "What on earth are you doing down there Dad?"

    1. He was standing on a bank, and I was looking up at him (or he was looking down on me).
