One of our lovely followers on Facebook recently commented, “The only thing better than one Beagle is two Beagles!”

Well, furiends, we’ve got something even better than that to show you:

The world’s largest Beagle!

This is Beagle Maximus, also known as Max, and he’s our favorite gigantic dog since Clifford the Big Red Dog. An estimated 7500 people were blessed with his enormous presence on August 15th and 16th at a Balloons Over the Lakeshore event in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

He proudly wore a BarkBox tag on his collar as he paraded his big adorable booty over the crowds.

We think all dogs should be spoiled, so the first question we wanted answered was, “How many people would it take to give Max a belly rub that would make his legs twitch with pleasure?” And that got us thinking…what else would we need to supersize to get Max’s tail wagging? What would we include in a Max-sized BarkBox?

Huge garbage bags for huge poops

Colossal treats the size of humans.

A huge basketball slingshot for games of fetch…like this, except with less #fail.

And logs for fetching, too.
