I don't have a lot of direct experience with dogs, but you gotta love em. Big and dopey is how i like them best, but i like them all.
I remember Nero the pitbull who adopted us for a month in San Diego. I joked once that he should pack his things and move in. He returned later with his bone.
Nero had the sweetest nature. He whimpered at the bottom of the staircase because Bud wouldn't let him pass. I'd have to go get him and bring him to the studio where he'd lay by my feet.
