DSC_0202Painter is a family pup-friend and he's also one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met.  Obedient and super-friendly, Painter is happiest when playing with one of 5 family members. If his human pals are unavailable, sticks also bring him much joy. Nothing beats Painter's warm slobbery welcomes made extra special with a happy tail-whacking on the legs. With a giant personality and an even bigger heart, Painter is a most fantastic compadre. If it weren't for his intimidating size, or his life threatening pee stream, I'm sure that he and Lily would be the best of friends. For what it's worth Painter, I think you're pretty rad:)

Leave it to a pup to teach such a great life lesson. Thanks for keeping it real Painter. I promise to play tug o' war with you the next time I see you.
