That's a good looking dog (and avatar).
Does he like cameras, or were you wearing bacon while taking the picture ?
He thanks you for the compliment. He's not camera shy, but a cookie sitting atop the camera helps--- a lot!
He hates bacon, but loves bacon grease, so I smeared his dinner with it one night shorlty after he arrived with us. His face smelled like bacon for over a week.
Plus, his real last name IS Watson, so the moniker "Bacon Face Watson" kinda sounded like "Baby Face Nelson."
