90lb Lap Dog.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Yep... it was cool at the door this evening (HOT all day long) so I went and sat down by the patio door, only to have Apollo come and sit ON my lap. I think he sometimes thinks that he is still the little puppy we brought home years ago.



Oh well. I love him.

PS, you can see a little bit of Orion.

His mum was a purebred bouvier, and we don't know what his daddy is. They let momma roam wherever she wanted so it could really be anything. We went and saw the litter and they all looked like purebred bouviers.. black or fawnish.. so you can't even tell what they are mixed with.

Thank you!

Orion is the cat you see peeking around, my dogs name is Apollo.

Love that pic! Mine are all lap dogs too - regardless of size. Doesn't matter how big or small they are - they are all still dogs!

Mine have their own pillows too. We had to go out of town the last two days. I guess the house sitter wasn't aware of the above fact and went to bed with only one pillow. One dog kept pushing all night in attempts to take it. And won. LOL.

And exactly how is a 90 pound lap dog a problem?

Mine are 75 and 95 pounds respectively and have always thought of themselves as lap dogs, usually at the same time. My thighs are getting flatter as time goes on......

Apollo is gorgeous!!

I've got a question....does he "stink" or hold smells? I had someone tell me that Bouvier's(sp?) hold smells with their coats...

That is so adorable! I've definitely been in your place before.

You want the truth?

I'd have to say, yes. They do hold the smell quite a bit. It's mostly in their beard I find. Because it gets wet and dirty and gross. Bouvs also like to rub their beards all over your legs after they have something to eat or drink.

Bathing them might help a fair bit.. but I'm not supposed to bathe Apollo except for in the colder months. Which is sorta bad because he takes forever to dry. But vets orders so. (moisture in fur causes hot spots on him)

I also find shaving him down eliminates the smell as well.

That is a great pic, and he's adorable

I was just wondering....I love Bovus, but am not a big fan of "stinky dogs". I probably wouldn't ever have one based on the grooming thing...but the smell thing. I'll stick to adoring your baby boy from far.

What a handsome guy!
I bathe my Old English Sheepdogs when ever they need it. I keep them in their long coat and it does take a awhile to dry. But I towel dry them and use a hairdryer on them. One day I might get a real pet blower, but I've done without for 30 years.
The dog washing stations/businesses in our area do have the blowers.

My m-i-l kept my husband's sheepie outside (before we married). Her beard would turn green in the summer (too much pond water) and often freeze in the winter (not that it stopped her). Slimmey, wet kisses.

Awe what a cutie pie

90 lbs is nothing in this house, id love it if mine were 90lbs..but mine are about 120 each and cocoa is convinced that he is a lapdog
post #23 of 23
Awww, what a sweetie!

PKM, I've had the same problem with my aunts dog, who is about 120. Silly beast, he not only like to be a lap dog, but he also had a problem of jumping up on people so he could lick their face. That wasn't so fun for the human.
