Another resident of my neighborhood is Ba-Roo, the Slobber-Love Beast. I seriously have no idea what his real name is, but his massive form can be glimpsed though the wooden slats of his fence, pacing you as you walk by his home. Once you reach the corner, a side fence of ~3″ chain-link has been pushed out and unraveled by this mighty beast thrusting his head repeated out to greet and surprise pedestrians. Thankfully he’s incredible friendly, if somewhat moist in his affections. Total sweetheart, I tell you, but I’ve seen more than one person leap at the speed and size of this St. Bernard.

The mesh provides a sense of scale. His head is probably about 12″ from crown to nose.
