Ok, so you're not actually going to see him in a "lap" setting, primarily because it would be pretty much impossible to capture him photographically in that setting while he consumes all your personal space. In the most loving way possible, of course.
Oh, and I'm not talking about the boy. Could be a touch awkward if he always wanted to be in my lap. Yipes.
It's the boy's dog. His name is Zach, and he's a flat-coated retriever, which I always thought was a made-up kind of dog until I just looked it up. Basically, he's a giant black golden retriever. And he's really sweet. And he'd be happy to meet you and lick you to death. So consider this your lick-free introduction. He's cute and sweet, even if he is a little ridiculous sometimes.
