London, June 10 : A three-year-old bull mastiff named Boris is so huge that he can be seen from space!
As for the reason why Boris is so easy to find, well that has something to do with his size, for he weighs a whopping 14 stone.
The whole incident unfolded when Boris' owners decided to zoom in on their hotel on Google Earth, revealed Fran Milner, 24, whose parents Bob and Carol run the Tudor Grange Hotel in Bournemouth, Dorset.
"My brother-in-law was on the internet one day when he decided to look at a satellite picture of our hotel," The Sun quoted her, as saying.
"He zoomed in a little way and noticed a big brown blob on the grass in front of the sundial.
"Then he realised it was Boris. He was in his favourite place. He loves lying there because it is a bit of a suntrap.
"We all had a look and couldn't believe it. I knew he was big but didn't think he was big enough to be seen from space."
The Milners have owned Boris since he was eight-weeks-old.
"Boris really belongs to my brother Doug who got him as an eight-week-old puppy," said Fran.
"He was obviously small but we had a feeling he would grow to be bigger than average size.
"From the day we got him he just kept growing and growing. Luckily though he appears to have stopped and shouldn't get any bigger."
She added: "Boris gets on brilliantly with our guests because he is so gentle and beautiful.
"They all want a picture with him - he's probably the most photographed dog in Bournemouth.
"Although he can't do much exercise he loves swimming in the sea.
"But for the moment he's doing what he loves best which is lying by the sundial for hours on end."
