Ben has the honor of being our first featured Pal with Paws for 2012. As you can tell by the picture he's very thrilled about the project. Ted sent me this holiday photo of his pal Ben. Learn more about this lazy Saint Bernard after the jump.

Ben is five-years-old and tips the scale at about 150lbs. That's about average for a Saint Bernard. What happened in this photo of Ben is the end result of a family photo shoot for Christmas cards. Ben gave up after about the third try. Hey Ted at least you got him to wear the hat. Thanks again for sharing your story about Ben, today's Pal with Paws.
