Horse Dog

Shortly before Christmas, Island Boy woke up to see this in his living room. A gift from dear friends, it is a larger-than-life size replica of a Bernese Mountain Dog. In fact, it is about three times the size of our Bernese Mountain Dog.

Island Boy stood back, warily observing the thing.

"Horse!", he declared.

I see your point, son. He continued to study the thing and soon declared, "Bus!". Wow, another great choice!

Yes, as large as a horse (or a bus) but in the likeness of a dog, this creature defies definition, so we now refer to it as the "horse dog". It was just one of the many highlights of our holidays this year and Island Boy still doesn't know quite what to make of it.
