  3. A husky wouldn't get that big, but a malamute definitely can. it's probably an alaskan malamute or mix of one at the top.

  8. My wife wanted a poodle, which i'm no fan of, so I suggested that if she got a poodle then I could choose a dog. The Leonberger wins. They look beautiful :)

  9. The one on top is named Baron- he's half malamute & half timberwolf. The photo was taken from http://www.kpc.us/

    Also, here's a great video featuring Baron that makes fun on the "Christian the Lion" video:

  10. wow, deep dish cheesecake for those of us who are Big Dog people. I saw a 'Giant Alaskan Malamute" in town last week, and it was even bigger than the Leonburger I saw last year. The Malamute's owner was trying to convince the hotel manager that his two retrievers and the Malamute would be fine in a hotel room: she said 'But sir we only allow dogs up to 30 pounds" and he kept offering her more and more money to let everybody stay. He was up to $1,000 extra to let the dogs stay in his family's room overnight, but finally had to give up. Adding to all this: the hotel is a Historic Registry property and the rooms are abnormally small by today's standards but can't be enlarged because of the historic designation.
    The dog was fabulous though. Never seen such en enormous dog.
