I love that guy!
Mazel Tov to the Happy Trio! (I am sure the Doggie is part of the Bargain!)
Congratulations to the happy couple and their dog!
Hey now! We ain’t all that snobbish down in Mississippi... An them local customs up there in Seattle ain’t all that quaint either.
The dawg has to have duties at the ceremony... It’s only right...
Obligatory statement by the best man, err... best friend.
They’ve got their work cut out for them. Over the weekend their team broke the weight record AGAIN. New record is 741 pounds. Official length is 13’6.5” tying the previous champ. That’s four 700+ lb. alligators in a 10-day period.
Forget those tacky Syfy monster movies. We got the real thing right here in the Magnolia State!
