That was the lie that Sue Markham told her husband, Robert, when she first brought Yogi home from an animal shelter. She knew that he was a Great Dane who would probably grow to be at least 30 inches and 170 pounds, but her husband wanted to adopt a dog only if he was small.
She didn't want to give up her dog, and she could get away with her lie at the start. When Yogi first arrived at the Markham's home, he was only a tiny 1-pound, 15-ounce puppy, according to Mercury Press. To her unsuspecting husband, the puppy was a Jack Russell.
But then he started eating $60 of food each week, and it became clear that Yogi was no Jack Russell at all.
