CC Sabathia's giant sheepdog took up residence on his lap

At 6-foot-6 and 300 pounds, Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia probably has a different concept of large and small than the rest of us. Even so, there should be -- there must be -- some things we can all agree on. An ant, for instance, is small both for all of us and for Sabathia. On the other end, this old English sheepdog is objectively large and not a lap dog:

While it is unclear whether the dog itself agrees with that common-sense characterization, CC's wife Amber Sabathia seems to be of the opinion that dog is too large to sit comfortably on any mortal's lap.

Regardless of its status as a lap dog, we hope Sabathia is comfortable and can still see the television with this giant canine sitting on him.
