My wife and I are currently house sitting for Baron - Australia's largest dog! Ask us anything!
Baron is an Olde English Mastiff, and weighs 122KG! (269 pounds!) He's only four years old and still growing, so may end up the largest dog in the world. He's also a registered therapy dog and helps kids with reading.
Baron just posed for this pic (and banana for scale) for me but check out some pictures of Baron and his adventures in this album I made, or at his Facebook page. There are also various news articles about him, and he has been on TV.
Baron is a big friendly boofhead, who still thinks he is a lapdog. It can get intense when he sits on you! He and his mate Chelsea (a French Mastiff) are snoring at our feet right now, but love nothing more than heading out for walks and meeting new people and dogs.
My wife is a teacher, so we got to know him through her school, and as lovers of big dogs, we could not turn down the chance to hang out with Baron and Chelsea for a few weeks!
Baron and his owners volunteer for a fantastic Aussie charity literacy program called Story Dogs, where kids can build their confidence with reading in a relaxed yet fun setting. It's based on an American program called READ, for those in the USA who wants to get involved.
He's also the brand ambassador for Pawssum - a Aussie vet service that will come to you.
So reddit, ask us anything!
