I discovered this (and last) year's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is on hulu. Watching it, I was incensed anew that the Leonberger is still not yet recognized by the WKC. What is wrong with these people?
I mean, look at this. Is this not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen?!
Also, HUGE. Oh my gosh. His paw is the size of her FACE.
They have friggin' GOLDEN EYES, okay?
And GIANT BUSHY TAILS,
which they sometimes carry curled in a highly adorable fashion.
In addition, they are brave and noble altruists, rescuing wanderers in the Swiss Alps in their spare time...
... and are 100% safe around small animals.
Basically, coolest dog ever. I so want one. Highfive.
