Larson

w. 12/12/11

Larson @ 4 Years Old, Seward, Alaska 3-25-16

Larson is a fun dog with a big personality.  He is named after the cartoonist Gary Larson (The Far Side) and is a goofball (he does not understand that he is too big to be a lap dog).  Larson is always game for a new adventure; he is very biddable and has proven his versatility in multiple venues, including the show ring, the field, obedience and agility.  He is incredibly sweet and is a wonderful puppy sitter.  He and Fergus are best buds and are otherwise known as "Frick and Frack".  Life is definitely a ball with Larson in it. 

Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he’s owned by a dog.  ~Gene Hill
