He is now called Bacon - yes like the food. My husband named him, and he responded to it. And now its just perfect for a big goofy, loud dog to have a goofy name.
He is an awesome dog; we go to the park every day and he still plays like a puppy. Only issue is food aggression but keeping a baby gate on the kitchen and knowing his triggers we've worked it out.
We've put few pounds on him as you can see, but vet is good with where he is.
Thank you again for a great dog - he is such a funny, warm, loving coonhound.
