    I agree Mabel aka Sauce or Mabel meat sauce. Last weigh in was 146 and she will gladly take any lap available. Some have frowned at me due to perceived dominance issue's but Sauce is the "softest" dog I have ever met. She cowers when our 2 year old points and yells and shes never been hit in her life. I suppose it depends on temperament....

    Mabel is the one in the front...best dog I have ever owned!

    Edited for atrocious spelling.

    taraann81, Mabel is beautiful. [​IMG]

    We haven't weighed the boys lately, but I can tell you that they are way too big for my lap. Not that they don't give it a try from time to time. [​IMG] My DH is not a small man, 6'4" and 290 lbs. and they are a lap full for him.
    They are going to the vet on Friday. I'm real curious to see how much Kane weighs now.
