Meet Lennox!

This is my sister’s dog. Isn’t he just the cutest? He’s two years old and I really want a dog just like him. I threaten to dog-nap every time I go visit my sister, but I haven’t found a purse big enough to smuggle him out. I plan to get one just like him when I have a yard big enough.

He reminds me of Fang from Harry Potter, except he doesn’t drool as much, but he is a coward like fang-lol. He’s a Japanese Tosa which is in the Mastiff family. I know this isn’t the normal post for me, but the last time I saw Lennox he was sick, had withered down to 118lbs. I know that sounds like a big ass dog, but he’s normally around 145lbs. And at 118lbs we could see his ribs and spine. As seen here on my Lennox Action Movie-lol.

We were very worried about him, but it turned out that he had food allergies. I was SO happy to see him fit and healthy with that shinny coat! He’s currently 137lbs, and still gaining. And that's why my blog has gone to the dogs today.

Aww! he's adorable! I'm glad he's going to be alright. Mastiffs are my favorite dogs. I can't wait to get a place of my own so I can get one.

That would be one BIGGGGG purse! I'm glad he's feeling better - he's a cutie :)

I love that face! And yes he resembles Fang. Glad to hear he's on the mend.

He's gorgeous! I'm LMAO at the fact that he's getting his picture taken with Santa :)

Bethany, I know how you feel. I have a 40lb weight limit on pets at my apt bldg and I think Lennox was 40lbs when he was 3 months old. lol.

Yeah, Jemi and if I ever managed to find a purse that big, my bro-in-law would hunt me down! He loves the heck out of that dog.

Tricia, he does have a face that makes me feel sorry for him when my sister orders him out of the kitchen. He comes and rests his face on your knee, leaving a wet spot.

Sherrie, this is his second time seeing Santa and I think it might become a tradition. My sister and her hubby aren't as bad as those people who buy matching outfits for their dogs--how could they? They barely make dog clothes big enough for Lennox--but they did dress him up for Halloween and he didn't look too happy about it-lol.

I LOVE LENNOX! I have a 120lb American Bulldog who is mostly white with a few black spots. They'd look great together. Yin and Yang. Next time I come to Bmore I might dognap him. :)

Oooh, Karen! If I don't get a Tosa I want an American Bulldog! I love them too. And sadly, Lennox lives in Reno--so far away from me--but maybe we can think up a scheme to dognap him together-lol.

Hello everyone!

Quit trying to steal my dog! lol! Lennox is my buddy-boy so no one can have him. Thanks for your nice comments. It was very upsetting for us when he was sick and we are soooo grateful that he is better and back to his goofy self.

Okay, he's just the cutest thing. Huge, but cute. I think I'd start building a purse big enough to dog-nap him too, if I were you.

Glad he's doing better.
