Does your dog think he or she is actually a 5lb teacup yorkie instead of a 80lb doberman or am I the only one? Post pics of your lap dobers!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion

When I was at the Harrisburg show there was a dog that climbed completely into his owner's lap... his owner that was sitting on a lawn chair! Head and paws on the shoulders, one leg on the lap, the other with the foot just baaaarely touching the ground.

My mother asked if he thought he was a lap dog. His owner just replied, that's why they call 'em velcro

Yup... it's who they are and what they do! A personal-sized pocket pooch in a rather oversized body... Willie has tried to climb onto my shoulder - he apparently occasionally believes he's a cockatoo.

Yes my boy loves to sit in my lap too. He often climbs right on and between my hubby and I? For the most part, we don't mind lol!

Haha. I'm cracking up at all the pics. I'm convinced they think they're tiny dogs. If they made purses big enough, I'm sure Hades would want me to carry him around in it. Reminds me of the commercial where the Great Dane is sitting on the smashed basket of a bicycle.

My girl Nexus will plop her butt right in your lap all the time! Its especially cute when I sit on the floor and she sits on my lap. Bella would rather curl up in the chair with me but still loves to be close.
