Another great thread, boohbah!
I have many friends with dogs and often have the opportunity to exercise them (my cats aren't much for running on the beach). I receive regular invites to join them at our local dog park, a place where they can run free and co-mingle with other dogs and owners.
I'd have a dog of my own if I were able to stay at home on a regular schedule.
Beautiful dogs, y'all! Thanks for sharing and looking forward to many more!
@jfar, I'll be visiting my friends Great Dane next week ... I'll try to get a pic similar to yours with your Wolfhound.
