Permanent Paw Print

My dog Ben is a svelte 125 pounds.  I know a lot of dogs are bigger than he is, but he is a Golden Retriever, and they don’t come much bigger than Ben.  When our vet first met Ben and said, “Wow!  That’s the biggest Golden I’ve ever seen!” you know it’s a big deal because she’s probably seen 100 a day, every day, over the course of her career.

While Ben is big in size, he’s one of the biggest chickens I’ve ever seen.  And, he thinks he’s a lap dog.  (See the bonus photo of Ben and my son from a few years ago below.)

Anyway, about the photo…

On a sidewalk near a friend’s house, permanently set into the concrete, is a set of BIG dog paw prints.  While they were not caused by my 125 pound “lap dog” they do make me smile and think of him every time I walk past them.

    • Thanks so much, Kevin! A friend who is also doing a 365 Project this year and I joke about how much we see now that we have our cameras with us at all times. I think it’s so true! You DO see the world more completely!

  2. Oh my goodness! Yep that’s the biggest golden retriever I’ve ever seen as well lol! I love the footprint in the sand 🙂 Super sweet. Oh and doesn’t it seem like the biggest dogs are the most chicken sometimes? HAHA We’ve had a few of those 😛

  3. Oh, i’ve got big hearts in my eyes for this post!
