Yeah, just under 23 inches. Pics may lie, but the measuring tape doesn't LOL! That's Badger...aka "Crazy Legs". Hey, I enjoy your type of humor and I'm the same way. Kind of a cynical humor However, I do laugh alot when I hear a good oneI would never have guessed he was 23 inches! I know what you mean about getting him to smile though, mate. Nitro is very much a serious dog. Sometimes I think he takes after me like that. A lot of people miss my humour in real life because I don't smile when I joke around. Or maybe I'm just not funny. Hmmm.
