I Heart Faces - Pets



    Although I have many "handsome" pictures of our first born boy Max, this is real life with him. The kids are always laying on him, sharing toys with him, using him to keep their toes warm, or using him as a pillow to watch cartoons. And he just takes it in stride. He is so gentle, sweet, and loving. Our yellow Clifford. He was the chunk of the litter and just didn't stop growing - 130lbs! For a Lab that is pretty big. (this is Ryan, our almost 4yo 30lb-something littlest boy, on him). And it is all love for his two human brothers. He's the best pet  we could have asked for for the boys and I am so grateful for his forgiving disposition (did I mention they sometimes use him as a step stool!) and wonderful personality. Oh and he has the squishiest old man whisker face and the softest freckly ears ever. We love you Max!

Head on over to I Heart Faces to see all the other animal and pet entries there!

He looks like our lab, Hercules. The kids are always laying on him and trying to ride him like a horse. He is about 5 yrs old. We adopted him from the Humane Society the night before he was to be put to sleep. He has been part of our family for 4 yrs now, along with a Schnoodle we adopted and two cats....I love seeing pics like these. :D

I had a lab named Chevy that could be twins with your dog. He was the best! Love this shot. :-)
