Hooowdeeee Fooollllks! Nope, I’m not the Big Tex that you’re all so familiar with, especially you Texas State Fair goers. Mixing a Golden Retriever & Great Pyrenees does create a big dog, but I’m nowhere near the 55 foot mark. The two of us do have a lot in common though. Both of us are on the back side of middle age, he was created in 1952 and I’m just a little over 8 ½. We’ve got a lot of good years in us yet.
Did you know that he originated as the World’s Largest Santa Clause? Imagine that, turning a 49 foot Santa into a 55 foot Cowboy! I guess the similarity continues as I was a roly-poly puppy once and now am a sturdy Good ‘Ol Boy. And one other thing, you know how much fun kids have at the fair? Well, they’re going to have just as much fun with me; I’m just one fluffy jungle gym!
I think I might have to take exception to the food awards up there at the fair. Do you know that have something called a Chicken Fried Loaded Baked Potato? I think I’ll stick with Purina or Blue Buffalo, they seem to work just fine for me. I do enjoy a nice big hambone here and there, but Fried Twinkies are just not my cup of tea. Nor are they good for my waistline.
So come on out to the shelter and meet me, say Howdy, take me for a stroll. You are guaranteed a gentlemanly good time.
