Big, bouncy and beautiful - the St. Bernard

We've had some gorgeous St. Bernard photos added to the site today. You can see one at the top of this post, but there are more on the site. Check out Best Buddies, Time for a drink and Dr Watson. That last one is not a new one, but I love the comment, with the quick aside reference to drool and shedding! If you go to our St. Bernard breed profile page and scroll down there are more photos of listeners' dogs to see.
