Anybody who's ever owned a big dog knows the struggle. Big dogs have absolutely no perception of their own growth.
And no matter how big they get, or remain, they just don't understand that they're probably crushing you.
But no matter how painful it is for you, how can you say no to them?
You know they're going to be your best friend through thick and thin. Why not be theirs through weight and excess fur everywhere?
So, while somebody should tell them they're not puppies anymore, we certainly don't want to be that person.
And can you blame us? Just look at them!
