Big Dog Road Hog

Ok, ok, so the title of our blog post today mixes two different animals. But when we are going down the road and this big dog insists on keeping the center of the road, what would you call him? We think Big Dog Road Hog works well.


Hey, big dog neighbor, good to see you sharing our road.

pick ok?

Uh, and by sharing, we mean you need to pick the left or the right, ok?

center half

Ok, sure, the center is technically “half” of the road.

weigh more

And you do sort of outweigh all of us combined. Ok, fine, we will just wait for you to pass.

    Look at him go just taking his good old time and all the road. I’m curious was this during a walk or were you driving somewhere for a walk w/ the herd? Should this guy have been on the road or did they make a brief escape looking for better feeding grounds, or maybe to head up to the herds playground for some fun times?

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
