    This guy is so big, but he's a sweetheart! Once, you catch him he loves being petted, even my 3 year old holds him. He doesnt run too fast, just has long strides, so hes fairly easy to catch. I love him. His name is Hippie. He's only about 9 months old!! He huge! Are they supposed to be this big? He's the size of my daughter!

    I want to enter him into the State Fair. Can I? Anyone know the rules?
