    WOW He is absolutely gorgeous!!!! But I’m not sure about the Kangaroo Leg…do you buy those? or did he kill one? OMG That kind of grosses me
    But this is def. a good capture. I also love the one of him relaxing in his lounge chair. :)

  • Thanks again Cheri Perry much appreciate you taking the time to have a sneak peek!
    Yes he is gorgeous and yes that kangaroo leg is gross!
    He didn’t kill it and we defineatly dont get this sort in the shops (not a silly question though; you never know these days). We live in the bush and he found it whilst on a walk in the bush. The kangaroo might have possibly been shot. …To be honest there could be a 101 reasons. lol… but Jasper found it and loved it. – It DID NOT come home in the car though! lol :)
    p.s) Jasper never fails to snuggle on a comfy chair! (you’ve got to watch yours sometimes.. he’s swift when it comes to comfort)!!! lol funny pooch. ooh.. sorry… didn’t think i answered… yes.. he is a gun dog.

    What a stunner.. Is he is livernose Ridgeback? I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback called simba (Check my images) and he is amazing. Your pooch looks so similar in every way.. Simply beautiful animal…

  • Thanks Rob, much appreciate your comments.
    Jasper is actually a Hungarian Viszla- a water gun dog. (so loves to swim)!!!
    I do get asked quite often if he is Ridgeback-and i can understand why- I used to have a Ridgeback- beautiful dogs. Thanks again for stopping by :)

    OMG!! A kangaroo leg? lol Great shot!!

  • yup.. thats Jasper!- we live in the bush, so when i let them out of the car, all 3 ran into the bush and Jasper ran out with this gross Kangaroo leg with Roxi and Dora chasing behind him! lol it was hilarious! it’s soo gross… but it’s that gross that i just laughed the whole time. I think what made it funnier is the fact that the roo leg kept on popping up and down at the knee as Jasper ran for ages with it! he he he! thanks again!

    I was clicking through the Personality Challenge images and when I saw this, at first I thought it was a stick, then I had my OMG moment (I actually said it out loud :-) I thought it was a deer leg. Then I came here to your portfolio to read your description…..too hilarious. Your dog definately has tons of personality!! He looks so proud of himself. I think you’ve got my vote. BTW Jasper…the perfect name for him.

  • Thanks so much Lolabud! I’ve got a smile on my face and I’ve had a little giggle at your comment; that is the EXACT reaction i wanted to draw. he! he! he! It isn’t any everyday sight to see a dog running around with a kangaroo leg in his mouth; but geez was it funny, i was in fits of histeria watching jasper run around the park teasing the other 2 with the roo leg! thanks again for stopping by Lolabud, much appreciated. take care :)
