I see who rates the bed. :rofl2:
Cruiser wanted to know where Jazzie was. I told him she was probably sleeping in her own bed.

Ha ha!  Yes, Jazzie was on her favorite bed right behind where I was standing.  The sunlight streams through that window in the morning and shines all over her.
Herk will just stretch out and sleep in any given room.  He mostly likes the kitchen--Source of All Things Good and Delicious, but when he wants a bed there are a few in our bedroom.  He can take his pick.

We had purchased the LLBean bed for Bueller a few years ago because Bueller likes to "check for snakes" before lying down and rips through the covers on the fleecy covered beds.  He hasn't made a dent in this one.

Herk had his annual physical today.  He  weighed in at 204 lbs.  :surprised: Walks daily,  :dog_and_smiley: limited treats  :drool: and measured out meals...OY!  :crazy:  The Doc said that Herk was the only patient in the hospital that outweighed him! Kudos to a great vet tech and friend of mine who got on the floor on her belly while Herk stood, so she could draw blood from his hind leg. If Herk suddenly sat down... :star.smiley:
 :girl_haha: :girl_haha: :girl_haha:

Enjoyed Sunday evening on the front porch with Mike and 2 sweet pups--Jazz and Herkimer.  Herk was the camera hog of the day. A few pics of His Royal Fattiness asking Mike to share his rocker glider.

Today is the THREE YEAR "Gotcha-Versary" of Herkimer Battle Jitney from FWF.  He's been such a wonderful addition to our household and has become a true southern gentleman, sitting in the shade on the veranda.   :laugh1:

Thanks for entrusting him to our care, Lucy!!!

Some pics from this morning's coffee on the front porch, before the temps soar to "HADES" degrees.  They were busy watching the neighbors across the street--little cute dog and 2 cats included.
(The glare in the second picture is from the sun hitting the reflective windshield screen in Mike's truck.)

Can't believe it's been three years already.  Happy Anniversary to all.  This calls for celebration in the Bradford home I am sure.  :)  Always love updates and Happy Endings!  Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful photos.

Happy Adopt-a-versary a little late, Herk!!  That boy has a new lease on life with you guys!  He looks so handsome and content - such a happy story!  And I can't believe it's been 3 years already either.  We just celebrated 3 years with our Isabelle early this month, too.  She's fully and completely a Bull now...as Herkimer is obviously fully and completely a Bradford.  It's so much fun to see them settle in and become part of the family. 

Mastiff kisses from our mastiffs to yours!
