It's a good thing I'm 5'11" and spent all those years bodybuilding . . .
Just out of curiousity, where do Filas originate and what are they bred to do? They are so beautiful. I have never heard of them until I met you.
140 pounds! I can't imagine 140 pounds of loving dog on me! Brady tries to fit in my lap as it is, and that is hard enough. My husband's sister has a mastiff who LOVES females. He got in bed with me and my husband when we went to visit them in Boston and he snuggled his back up to me and used his four monster paws to literally push my hubby out of the bed. Seriously. LOL! It was so funny. And to think his sister used to date a guy who wasn't that crazy about dogs. Imagine. If you didn't like dogs the last person you should date is someone who has 130 pounds of one! Luckily she has found a great guy who loves all 130 pounds of her dog (and her!) and they are getting married next December.
