Big dogs that take up small spaces, like your lap, are the most endearing of gentle giants.

It’s sort of the opposite of the cat’s mantra if I fits I sits. A Great Dane will be all like, “What’s that? You weigh 110 pounds? Cool cool–that’s actually perfect. I’m going to sit on your lap because it’s sorta’ my thing. Accept your fate human because I’m 165 pounds of fugging adorable slobberin’ sweet kisses all over ya.”

Below you will find examples of these behemoths occupying sizable accommodations.

This is why we have dogs. Our space is their space and we can’t deny even the biggest of good pups a lap to snuggs upon.

If you have a big dog, small dog, medium dog, fat dog, skinny dog, ANY dog share with us in the comments. We’re a sucker for an engaging “tail”. Ayyy!
