Puppies are a small bundle of lovable joy. Usually when people welcome a new puppy into their family, they are overwhelmed with excitement and spend all their time playing with their new little friend. When this one couple brought a new puppy home, they were overwhelmed with how cute he was.
But, it didn’t take long for the small puppy to completely morph into something different than what the couple initially expected. Things suddenly were not as they seemed.
Sue, a Salvation Army volunteer and Robert Markhan, an oil refinery worker, of Gainsborough in Lincolnshire, England, lived right next door to a local kennel.
Conveniently, this was also Sue’s place of work, where it was her responsibility to look after different dogs.
It was at her work that she first spotted a puppy named Yogi Bear. Her love for him was instant. You know, that love at first sight kind of feeling when you feel as though the relationship is meant to be.
“When I saw Bear, I fell in love with him,” Sue later shared in an interview with the Daily Mail. “[I] knew I wanted him.”
It's not difficult to understand why Sue felt this way about Yogi Bear. At the time, he was adorably small and weighed only one pound and five ounces.
But, when Sue understood the type of breed he was and how big he would soon be, it became clear that he wasn't going to stay his minuscule size for very long.
If you don't recognize what type of breed Bear is, he's a Boston Great Dane. The Great Dane is a German dog known for its huge size. These huge dogs can reach a size of 154 pounds.
While Sue was okay with the idea of having such a large dog at home, her husband Robert, on the other hand, would have a problem with this.
And still, Bear had already won over this grandmother of four, and Sue was determined to work as many shifts as possible so that she could pay for the dog.
When she finally brought him home one day, she told Robert a small white lie about their new furry friend.
“I knew Robert didn’t want a big dog,” Sue reasoned. Robert was only willing to take in a small dog that would be manageable for the two grandparents.
“So, I told a little fib and said he was a Jack Russell.” Well, Robert fed into the lie and allowed Sue to bring him home thinking that he wouldn't grow to be so big. Boy, was he fooled!
"I thought a big dog would be a lot of work and could be trouble,” Robert confessed. “We only have a small living room. I thought, ‘How much trouble can a Jack Russell be?’” But, as the months went by, Bear grew bigger than any Jack Russell Robert had ever seen.
Great Dane puppies grow very large and very fast. Jack Russell Terriers on the other hand, don't get much bigger than 6 kg.
“By the time he was five months old, he was bigger than any Jack Russell he came across at the park,” Robert added. “And he had this big tongue that rolled out of his mouth and a tail like a baseball bat.”
Why was his dog so much bigger than other Jack Russells? Robert was suddenly growing suspicious of this dog's actual breed.
Ultimately, Sue had to admit to her husband that she may have lied to him. She told him what breed Bear truly was.
“It started to become fairly obvious when Bear dwarfed any other dogs in the village,” she said. “So, the game was up.” While she felt very bad for doing so, it had become clear that Bear had already become a significant part of the couple's lives.
Understandably so, Robert was pretty frustrated that his wife had lied to him. But, things worked out according to Sue's plan, and Robert was already very attached to the dog, as of course was Sue.
Bear had already become part of the family and the couple loved him a lot. At this point, Robert never would have gotten rid of him simply because his size.
The Great Dane's large and imposing appearance contradicts its friendly nature. They are known for seeking physical affection with their owners, and because of this, they are often called 'gentle giants.'
“He’s a very good-natured dog,” Robert said. “[And he has] a lot of character. So, it would be hard for anyone not to love him or be angry with him.” Ultimately, the family decided to keep Bear.
Fast forward nine years and Bear had grown to be a huge dog. He now weighed nearly 210 pounds and required a three-acre paddock to exercise. Plus, his appetite for food was enormous.
While he required a lot of basic necessities, Sue and Robert were happy to provide for him, as they loved him so.
Every month, Bear chowed down on over $257 of dog food. While you might be asking yourself how in the world is this possible, if you saw the amount that Bear ate, this would make a lot of sense to you.
His breakfast of champions, for example, included four sausages with a big amount of scrambled eggs on top. You know how important that protein is for body builders.
From his nose to his tail, the dog measured at a length of 6 feet 10 inches. So naturally, he required all of his products to be super-sized. Instead of a dog bed, he used a two-seater sofa. When he needed to be outside in cold weather, he dressed in a horse coat to keep warm. Sue shared that Bear considers himself as part of the family.
"He certainly thinks of himself as a real person. He sits on his own sofa and watches the TV with us. He’s very protective of it. If a stranger comes in, he won’t let them go and sit on his sofa."
Although Robert initially had hesitations about having a Great Dane at home, Bear became ingrained in their family.
“He certainly thinks of himself as a real person,” Sue explained. “He sits on his own sofa and watches the TV with us.” Bear provided the company that was missing from the empty nesters' homes.
Thanks to Bear, the Markham family added even another member to their family. In 2014, a stray cat began visiting their home to get warm.
Bear took the cat under his wing. Sue commented on the cat's arrival "We thought he wouldn’t be a fan, but instead he welcomed her onto his sofa and they often curl up and sleep together."
The family named the cat Toffee, and now the cat is a regular visitor of the Markhams. And yet, Sue and Robert are not disillusioned by the cat's visits.
They know from the bottom of their hearts that the cat comes to visit Bear.
“They’re good friends,” Sue said. “Toffee is always following him around, and he will happily lick her on the head very gently.
Bear sees Toffee as his own pet, I think, as she’s certainly not our cat.” If Bear is happy, then Sue and Robert are happy too.
Bear's unbreakable bond with Toffee is a show of his kind nature. Despite his enormous size, he is so sweet and not at all scary like one might assume because of his size.
Just like Robert came to understand, Bear is a gentle giant.
There are many other dogs like Bear who are big sweet giants that just don't want to grow up. Do you blame them? Check out this list of hilariously huge dogs that wish to stay puppies forever. And the funniest part is that their owners let them. Scroll through the list and we won't judge you for letting out a chuckle! We definitely are laughing over here. St. Bernard's Got Back Who doesn't like cuddling with their dog? It must be tough though if your dog is a St. Bernard. These huge dogs can way up to 250 pounds. So if you're going to cuddle with them, you better do it side by side because i'm not sure how comfortable it is to have them on you... as you can see by this picture.
This girl looks like she's getting suffocated by her St. Bernard. She must really love him to allow him to suffocate, I mean sit on her like that.
Hug Me, Daddy
Dogs get so excited when their owners come home from work so they can have company and some rubbing. So excited that they often times jump on their owners, as did this dog.
Despite his massive size, his owner lets him sit on him and is happy to go along with the dog's wishes. He does look a bit red in the face, though... I only hope he knows when to say enough is enough.
I Thought You Loved Being The Little Spoon?
Whether it's the middle of the night or the person's wake up call, this dog decided that it was the perfect opportunity to jump in bed with their owner... I mean on their owner. The owner looks less pleased about the situation and we don't blame him, as they have a massive 100 pound dog weighing down on their body.
The photographer, on the other hand, recognized the opportunity as the perfect moment for a photo. And that, we've got to agree with.
The safest way to travel is when you've got your gang by your side... in the form of two Old English sheepdogs. Heck, this guy doesn't even need airbags! He's got enough fluff from these two dogs that he is well protected from accidents. These dogs measure in at around 22 inches and can weigh up to 100 pounds.
While he does look very safe on his scooter, I'm just not sure if that scooter will be able to accelerate with all this weight on it.
What's the Maximum Weight On This Swing?
This dog looks like a shepherd-wolf mix who enjoys long walks on the beach and cuddling, much like you or I do. It seems like the dog isn't aware of his huge size, though.
But his owner seems to be very amused with him in her arms. I just hope that the porch swing is sturdy enough to hold the two of them.
Now this one is hilarious. Is that a dog or a horse? Or a horse-dog? Whatever he is, he thinks that it's the perfect time to cozy up on his owner's lap.
The owner, on the other hand, doesn't look like she's 100% certain of the idea, but she lets him anyways. The pup seems super happy and cozy, but we're sure the owner feels crushed under all that weight.
The Sacrifices You Make For Love
This adorable pooch may be big but she seems super gentle. While it doesn't look like the most comfortable situation for the two of them, you make sacrifices for love sometimes.
And what's watching T.V. without man's best friend by your side... or on you? The dog clearly know she's too big but she's not interested in your opinion.
Just Brunchin' With My Boo
Now these two look adorable together and so happy. It's obvious that they are enjoying one another's company. A lot of people like taking their dogs with them when they go to restaurants.
If they're lucky, their dog will calmly sit nearby, on the patio while their owner eats. And if they're extra lucky, their dog will jump up on them and be with them every step of the way. And this dog and owner duo couldn't look happier together.
Carry Me There, Daddy
We all get lazy sometimes and want somebody to just transport us to wherever we need to go. This seems to be the case for this husky who wants their owner to take them outside for a walk. A walk as in the owner walks while holding the puppy.
This dog is clearly battling some attachment issues and has a fear of being let go. The dog wants to forever be a baby so his owner owner do everything for him.
This Seat is Reserved, Ladies
Ladies, keep on moving. This cute dude's lap is taken. This guy is for sure using his dog as a babe magnet. The dog looks super at peace resting on his owner.
Sprawled out across his owner's entire body, it appears as though he's not about to let anybody near his owner with a 10-foot pole. Whoever wants to date this guy better get on good terms with the dog first.
Who Doesn't Love a Good Butt Pillow?
It's opposite day in this household. The small dog gets the big bed and the big dog is reduced to the smaller bed.
But, both don't seem to mind and they seem pretty cozy, even though half of the large dog's body is on the floor.
Just Netflix and Chilling
Some girls Netflix and chill with guys and others binge watch Netflix with their favorite feline animal. The dog looks happy to be included. The owner also looks quite pleased although she has a big fluffy dog butt in her face.
The dog seems very comfortable, and completely unaware of his massive size. He's just ready for the next episode and hoping to catch a dog in it.
Were You Trying To Get Work Done?
Taking your dog to work can be fun, but it definitely can be distracting, especially when your dog is massive and sitting on you. I mean, how is this woman even supposed to see her computer screen? She definitely didn't have this in mind when she decided to take her dog to work for some company.
This huge golden doesn't seem keen on letting her owner get some work done today. Bottom line, dogs can be distracting in the workplace and we can understand why many places don't allow it.
This Walk Is Too Long, I'm Over It
A lot of people take their dogs along with them on a hike. Dogs love getting out in the nature so that they have a big open space to walk and run around. And it sure looks like a beautiful day for a hike! But, it seems like this woman's husky got lazy halfway through and required his owner to carry him.
The dog, clearly being unaware of his size, decided that it would be okay for his owner to carry him. Well, it's a better workout for the woman anyways!
Not What The Ottoman Is Intended For
If you thought for a second that this guy bought an ottoman for his legs, you are sorely mistaken. The ottoman is clearly meant for his massive dog. He is way too large to join his owner comfortably on the two-seater couch.
Luckily, his owner loves him enough to have invested in the ottoman so that the two of them can sit together and watch TV. Although it's doubtful that the guy can see anything past the mastiff's enormous head.
Who Needs Rubber Duckies?
When you're a mom trying to juggle your family and work with household duties, you better learn to multi-task or you won't manage to get it all done. This mom deserves the "mother of the year" award. When bath time comes around, she throws all the dogs and child together.
Why do it separately when it can be done all at once? And they look super happy to be with one another. Although with the big dog Rex, we're not sure how much room is left for the child and smaller puppies.
Whatchya lookin' at?
You know how they say an owner and his dog start to look alike? I think I know what this means now. This guy and his dog are literally wearing the exact same facial expression which screams “what are you looking at?” The dog looks absolutely huge, far too big for the couch.
But, the two don't seem to have a problem with their difference in size and it seems like they are both more so wondering why anybody at all is questioning why they're together.
Who's the baby?
There's nothing cuter than baby pictures and nothing cuter than pictures of dogs. Put them together and you end up with just about the most adorable thing ever. This photographer was going to take a picture of the adorable baby cuddling up against the dog and the dog was like "hey, what about me? I'm also an adorable baby."
It seems like he's unaware of his massive size. But true, together they make one perfectly cute picture.
The Elephant in the Room
When your dog is the size of an elephant and your friends come over, do they wonder why you have a zoo animal in your living room? It seems like this humongous dog is unaware of his size.
Despite taking over half of the living room, he still wants to sit close by to his owner, AKA on her lap. But, they do look sweet together.
I'm Just One of the Girls...
This dog is trying to blend in with the girls, just working on his tan in the warm summer sun. Well, he's going to have to put a bikini on if he wants to do that. The girl clearly doesn't mind and his happy to share her recliner with him as they relax together by the pool.
The other kids, however, seem to think the two look a bit weird together. Carry on though kids... this isn't a circus. Just your average dog and owner enjoying their time together. And this huge dog is so adorable he wouldn't hurt a fly.
Not as Tiny as He Thinks
This tiny pup seems not to have realized that he's unable to fit into tight spaces. Perhaps once he was able to, but he's since grown in size and is no longer so small.
It seems like here, he was able to fit into a tight space, but he got out with quite the struggle and with an accessory, a stool. Either that or he's helping his owner transport his stool.
Relaxing By The Fire
This dog seems to not understand that you need to light the wood for there to be a fire. He has also grown in size since the last time he sat on these chairs when he was just a pup and could curl up comfortably on the chair.
It's no longer possible and he finds half his body spilling out onto the ground. Still, he wants to be in on the action and chill near his family as they grill.
When Your Dog is as Big as Your Car
If you're going to bring a dog this big home, then you might want to invest in a truck. Otherwise, you will find yourself squished up against your dog in the car. This Imgur user has shared that his dog acts like a parrot, apparently even imitating his owner's behavior.
Here his dog sits beside his owner like it's no big deal, meanwhile his owner's face is pressed up against the doggie's behind. Regardless, the dog seems very attached to his owner and doesn't want to live his side for a second.
It’s Time For a Movie Marathon!
There is nothing more fun than chilling out on a movie night with some friends and popcorn. And you better make sure to get there early so you get a good seat.
This dog knows all about it and got the best seat in the house. The early bird catches their mom's lap. "Well, stop taking Instagram pictures and let's start the movie," the dog is probably thinking. "I want to watch Air Bud already, it's my favorite flick!"
I Had a Rough Day
Sometimes you have a rough day and all you want to do is curl up on the couch with your BFF slash owner. This dog seems to have had a tiresome day and just needs some quality time with her mom.
She clearly is delusional, though, and doesn't realize that she is much bigger than her owner. But, as awkward as she's situated, it will have to do for now. She just needs some comfort!
I'm Just a lil' Pup
This dog and his owner both don't want the dog to grow up. The owner has no problem treating his dog as though he is still a little puppy and respectively, the dog also wants to be treated as though he's a child. Even though the dog is completely oversized, he sits quite comfortably in his owner's lap.
And his owner, in adorable Simpsons pajamas, has no qualms about the situation. In his eyes, he will forever be the same little puppy he took home years ago. Some things never change.
I Just Want to Chill with You
The look on this dog's face screams "I just want to be with you." He doesn't seem to mind that he barely fits on his owner's lap because his legs are so huge.
And his owner clearly doesn't have the heart to let him know that the dog is crushing him. Oh well, it will have to do for now.
I'm Just Trying to Cuddle!
This dog doesn't really mind that the puppy and little girl are already sitting on the chair. He also doesn't care that he is much bigger than the girl and is potentially going to crush her.
The girl seems to be enjoying it though and is giggling under his heavy weight. But, she might need help getting out from under the heavy weight of the shaggy dog!
We Belong Together
These two have been together for years and you can tell that they're loyal to one another. How can you tell? Because despite her dog being more than twice her size, he chooses to sit on her rather than another spot.
We are sure that he proves to be a solid companion for this grandmother whose children have moved out of her house. This dog is such a grandma's boy!
Hide and Seek!
When you play hide and seek, it's important to look for spots that the seeker wouldn't think to look behind. Case in point? This dog.
He provides the perfect hiding spot for a child in a game of hide and seek. You can't tell at all that there's a human hiding there... until you see his legs!
Do I Have to Go to School Today Mom?
We all know what it's like to wake up on a Monday morning after a fun weekend away from school and work. The last thing that you want to do is drag yourself out of bed. You try and come up with any excuse in the book.
This dog looks like he can relate. Although, I'm not sure how comfortable it is for him to sleep in a bed which is half his size. Apparently, she is overly attached to her childhood bed and won't allow her owner to get rid of it. Come on, admit it, you're still holding on to your blankie from childhood... we won't tell.
Are There Any Doggie Treats Down Here?
This dog used to be able to find the best treats under here... like old Halloween candy.
When he was younger, it wasn't a problem to sneak under here and see what he could snag. But now, his sneaky deed is way too obvious, as he tends to get caught while coming out. Either way, he still tried so we give him an A for effort.
I've Got Your Back
There's nothing better than putting up your feet after a long day at work. And doing it with your owner by your side, I mean under you, is the best.
No matter how big she gets, her owner will always have her back, literally. These two look like the best of friends. The bond between a dog and her owner is one of the strongest!
Don't Want to Dirty My Fur
This dog sees his owner perched up in a chair, she figures, hey why should I be the one to dirty my fur? She feels just as entitled as her owner to sit in a chair and not below down on the ground.
Her owner doesn't seem to mind in the slightest and holds her dog in her arms, despite her weight. Now this is what it looks like in the doggie princess world.
I Need Attention, Mommy!
It seems like this dalmatian isn't coping well with her owner doing work. She seems to feel like her owner cares more about her work than she does about her. She's just lucky that her owner is working from home and didn't leave the house, because then the depression would really kick in.
It seems like the dog's owner loves her very much and is sympathetic towards her feelings. So, she holds her in her arms instead of telling her to go away. It's amazing how many sacrifices dog owners are willing to make for their pets.
The Life of the Party
This dog's owner brought him along to the tailgate party and he couldn't be happier. He loves being in the center of the action, especially when it has to do with sports. He loves attention and seems oblivious about his large size.
He likes to make rounds sitting on everyone's laps, much like he did when he was a puppy. There's enough of him to go around, folks!
This dog doesn't appreciate the fact that his owner is trying to do work instead of cuddling with him. His owner is laying on the couch, which her dog takes as a sign that she is open for business, cuddling business that is.
So he comes and sandwiches himself between his owner and her work. She was at work all day and it isn't right that she comes home and goes straight back to working instead of giving him the attention he deserves. Now put away your papers and pay attention to me!
The Best Seat in the House
This dog knows what it's like on movie night when every body tries to get the best seat in the room. So, he made sure to get to the living room early so that he could get his favorite seat, on the ottoman.
Unfortunately, his owner beat him to it. But, the pup doesn't seem to mind and he just sat right on his owner's feet. His owner also doesn't seem to have a problem with it. The pup can't wait for tonight's episode of CSI! But... he's really just here for the pet food commercials. He wants to see what's the latest snack trend.
You know when you see somebody else napping, it makes you want to nap? Well that seems to be the case here for this dog. He saw his owner taking a nice nap and looking cozy and he wanted to join in on his cuddles.
The boy was not expecting this and he woke up with a furry animal in his face. The dog isn't sure why everyone finds this so funny, he was just trying to catch some zzz's.
It's Not You, It's Me.
This girl and her dog just seem to want different things in life. He wants to sit on her, and she, on the other hand, doesn’t seem so pleased about that idea.
We get it, the dog has missed her owner a lot since she went away to college. But her owner doesn't seem to miss moments like these too much.
Like a Gangsta'
Nothing says a true gangster like riding with the top of your car down. Or, with your head sticking out of the sun roof of the car.
That's the case for this dog who's become too big to ride in his mom's car. The only way he can fit is with his head sticking out. But hey, he pulls off the look quite well.
What? I didn't See Him
Whatever you're thinking, I'm not to blame. I have no idea where your dad went. What do you mean you see his arm?
Ok, ok fine. I'm hiding him. I want to cuddle with him but he has to leave for work.
What Do You Mean I'm Too Big?
One of this dog's favorite things in the world are lap cuddles, and he's not about to let his big size stand in the way of that for him. Once upon a time when he was just a puppy, he used to always cuddle up on his owner's lap for some bonding time.
And, now that he's grown bigger, nothing has changed. He still loves cuddling up on his owner like it was yesterday! Unfortunately for the both of them now, it's just not as comfortable as it once was.
Dancing Queen Young and Sweet...
If you don't have a man, then you better be sure to find yourself a dog who can dance! This giant pup feels for his single lady and takes the time out of his busy schedule to enjoy a slow dance with her before they go out hunting together- see gun in background
And if you were wondering, they will be going out in matching scarves. Nothing says romance like a day out in the woods searching for kill.
A Polar Bear Has Escaped!
Um did a polar bear escape from the zoo? And what are you doing on our list? This is a list of big dogs!
This dog looks strikingly like a polar bear but alas, he's a dog! Still, we think he needs to go back to the North Pole, that big fluffster!
When You've Graduated From Being a Lap Dog...
Probably once upon a time, a long time ago, this Great Dane was a perfect lapdog. But, those times are long gone.
It's safe to say that if your front legs are completely on the ground when you're sitting on your owner, it's probably time you graduate to sitting by yourself. Sorry dawg, I know it's hard to accept aging. But, it happens to the best of us.
Another Lap Dog Graduate
This type of dog, a Great Dane, is a great dog. They are friendly and very loyal. But, you can't be it all and what it is not is a good lapdog. The problem first began when he noticed his little golden retriever friend cuddling up on his owner's lap. Jealousy took charge and the Great Dane wanted some of his owner too.
Props to him for not letting his big size stop him from attempting. And props to his owner for having a big heart.
Those Who Adventure Together...
Those who adventure together, stay together. These two are no strangers to that. What a lucky dog that gets to accompany his owner to this stunning place out in the nature. And how lucky the owner is that she has such a big dog to protect her from predators while she's out in the wild. Plus, he gives her some awesome Instagram-worthy photo opportunities.
It's a win-win for them both. It's clear that they are both loving their time together, as seen by their big embrace. We just hope his large stature doesn't knock her off of her feet!
It seems like these two want to live a day in each other's shoes. For the little dog, the change seems fine. However, it puts the bigger dog at quite a disadvantage.
Regardless, it doesn't seem like he doesn't have any problem falling asleep. Life as a pup can be hard and tiring! As long as the big pup has a place to rest his head, he seems content.
A Bed Fit For a Puppy
Once upon a time, this boxer slept peacefully in his puppy-sized bed. He's since outgrown the bed and it seems about high time his owner invests in a new bed for him.
While he still appears to be enjoying the comfort of the big, a larger bed would be more suitable for his big frame.
Live Life on the Edge
When this cute hound was a puppy, he could fit on just about everything and every chair he so wished.
Now, as a bigger dog, life is becoming less convenient for him. Still, he sits where he pleases even if that means that his legs will be hanging off of the edge. As they say, live life on the edge!
Dinner And A Movie
Another dog who adores cuddling up with his owner for some Netflix and Chill. It's the perfect activity for two best friends.
Unfortunately, the dog has grown in size and the two can't comfortable sit with one another like they used to. But, his loving owner doesn't seem to care much.
In this household, it's clear where every member sits. The dad obviously sits in his dad chair because it's TV-watching chair. The dog clearly can't take a hint and thinks it's okay to plop right on his owner's stomach.
We can't blame him though, it does look like a very comfortable seat! We just hope that the owner can still see the TV screen, and breathe.
Are you Even a Dog?
Some dogs don't even look like dogs but more like a wolf or even magical dragon.
This dog appears to be the latter, and the kind that is exemplary in cuddling AKA cutting off the circulation of his owner's legs. That's like the best power of them all.
Every baby loves being pushed in a baby swing. It was this dog's favorite activity when he was just a pup. But, he seems to not have realized that he's grown significantly since then and he's no longer tiny enough.
With his tongue hanging out, he seems to still be enjoying himself. But we just hope he'll manage to squeeze himself out of there!
Hellooo I'm talking to you!
If it's anything that Meatball can't stand, it's being ignored. When he was just a young puppy, his owner could get away with ignoring him because he would just jump on his knees and he was so tiny.
But, now that he's as big as this, Meatball's jump can cause serious repercussions in the form of a broken back. From the looks of this picture, his owner insulted him pretty badly!
You can Find Me in Here
I only hope the the dog chose to stuff himself in this dog cage and wasn't cruelly stuffed in there by his owner.
At one point, this cage probably seemed like a castle with a king-sized bed. But now this huge dog hardly fits in. It seems high time that his owner buy him a new cage! Comfort is key in life.
You'll Have to Go Through me
This giant dog is not about to let just anybody touch his baby. What an adorable picture of the baby chilling with man's best friend.
It's safe to say that the baby feels very safe with the dog. He is the ultimate protector and will ward off any enemy that comes close.
175 Pounds Of Love
At 175 pounds, Troy has a lot to offer by means of wrinkles and fur. He absolutely loves cuddling with his owner, yet, his owner seems to be a bit uncomfortable under the weight of his dog.
Troy, we know you love your cuddle time but maybe you should give your owner a rest!
