Yes, he really, really is smiling there. Too bad that picture is blurry. Mary, my son's girlfriend took those. I don't know what happened. But yeah...he is a cutie and those ears!!! Can you believe how they can go straight up like that when he is running so hard? That's the funniest thing. They're so long and heavy.
He's not really my dog....couldn't get the owners, once found to give him to me even though he stayed and stayed and I fed him, cleaned his ears, clipped his nails, gave him a warm place to sleep at night. But they don't care about him, don't come looking for him....nothing. They are real jerks...accused me of kidnapping him even though he's the one that came here. I didn't steal him from anywhere. I told them to come get their dog then. They didn't. When it's below freezing and a dog is on my front porch, barking half the night, you're darn tootin' I'll be bringing him inside. Idiot people like that shouldn't be allowed to own dogs...shouldn't be allowed to reproduce!
He's at my house or my son's girlfriend's house 97% of the time anyhow because that's where he likes it and the owners do nothing.
