Grady Monster Does Thanksgiving

Just in case you’re curious, this is what a 23-week-old [~ 5 months, 1 week], 62-pound Bernese Mountain Dog PUPPY looks like. He comes up to the waist of a 5’6″ person. Hooray! These are courtesy of my mom, who I think took so many photos out of sheer shock at his size.

Grady spent some time in Purgatory over Thanksgiving, because he kept eating Juliet’s food.

purgatory. he seems to like it.

And yes, that other dog [Juliet] is full grown.

at least my running jacket is reflective.

legs of a model.

he's bigger than Juliet's crate.

He loved my dad. Even wanted to help put up christmas lights [and didn’t swallow any of them].

helpin' out. WATCHIN'.


My mom also added a footnote: after Grady left, Juliet started sleeping like he does:


I guess it’s just comfortable?
