21 Big Dogs Who Still Think They’re Little Puppies

By Travis Greenwood

According to Wikipedia, "a lapdog or lap dog is a dog that is both small enough to be held in the arms or lie comfortably on a person's lap and temperamentally predisposed to do so."

While this is true in theory, the reality of the sitch is very different (LOLs) because literally all dogs — no matter their size — think they're still lap dogs.

Here then are 21 gentle giants that just want to curl up in, around, or on your lap. They might not be puppies anymore, but that doesn't mean they don't want to cuddle with you any less.
