Ralph, the Saint Bernard

For some reason, me and my mother really wanted a Saint Bernard, and lo and beyold, one day there was a litter of St. Bernard puppies advertised in the Staten Island Advance. We drove out to Stapleton to see them, and when we rode up in the Gremlin, five adorable St Bernard puppies ran up to us, with their mother, Trina, looking on from the porch. We took the fluffiest and most rambunctious one, and we named him Ralph. after Ralph Kramden from The Honeymooners.

When Ralph grew up, he was around 175 pounds. He used to wake us up every morning. My mother would open our bedroom doors when it was time to get up, and Ralph would jump on our beds and lick our faces. He also would occasionally let us put a t-shirt on him, but it had to be a large.
