    Any other Great Dane or giant breed owners here

    Hey Guys and Gals, my wife and are big dog lovers and own 2 Great Danes, just wondering if there are any other Great Dane owners or other giant breed owners on the site.

    I love big dogs too! My Mom raises Cavaliers though, and I have a friend that shows Salukis and Scottish Deer hounds.

    We are due to get an American Mastiff puppy in the spring. We are on this years puppy list. My husband and I both fell in love with Mastiffs however my husband the clean freak could not deal with all the drool. I did some research and found American Mastiffs (a relatively new breed) has a dry mouth. Bingo! Sign us up.
    Should make things a little more interesting around the house I should think.

    I had a professor in college that only had Great Danes from the time he was 9. They were such beautiful and friendly dogs. He would bring one to class from time to time.

    Enjoy your gentle giants!!!

    thanks lizzy, mastiffs are a wonderful dog, we almost got one. We rescued both of our Danes, so they have been a little bit of work but worth every second. Our male is 150lbs and stands 36 inches at the shoulder, our female is 125lbs and stands around 34 inch at the shoulder. if you wouldlike to see my guys,just go to www.albertagreatdanerescue.com on the right hand side of the screen there is my male and femae stand and sitting beside each other and my female is lying on the couch on the bottom right.

    My wife and I are looking into a dog to go with the new house soon. It has come down to Danes or Boxers. Love both of them, but I think the Boxers are going to win out. Still love the Danes though especially the Brindles and Fawns.

    If I put all my cats in a sac and weighed it, it wou be about 50 pounds of pissed off cats. And all my dogs are all scared of them without that!

    I want a Great Dane, but no one around here sells 'em. But I am looking.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Would you settle for an Average Dane?

    I had a Great Dane for 4 years. You have to be able to put up with a lot of slobber. My ex and I got her from a friend who couldn't keep him. His name was Harley and he was a Harlequin. My ex's friend paid to fly him to us. When I picked him up and saw how big he was, I was shocked. At the time, I worked nights and when I cam home my ex would have to get up and bring Harley to me otherwise he wouldn't let me in the bedroom.
    I found I had to introduce people to him and then he was OK. He was a great lover and a ladie's man. He would come up to you sideways and back you into a corner so you had to pet him. When I got divorced I got custody of Harley. He'd start out sleeping on the floor and during the night end up in bed with me. I'd have about 8 inches of sleeping room and he took the rest of the queen sized bed. Danes are very touchy-feely. He would constantly push against me to feel me next to him.
    I lost him in 2002 to kidney problems. Deep chested dogs like Danes are also prone to stomach twisting so be careful about exercising before or after feeding.

    Check on-line for any Great Dane rescue groups. I've seen some groups with nation-wide transport networks.

    I have a Great Dane puppy. 3months old and he is the size of a medium black lab. Going to be a monster. My family raised St. Bernards when I was a pup, then went to Akitas.

    I also have:

    Pug (8 lbs.)

    Bassett Hound (85 lbs)

    P.S.- Cona- PM me and I can get you in touch with a local breeder of Danes. She has a bitch that is going to have pups anyday now
    Any day above ground is a fine day indeed!

    Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

    i tried to do the rep thingy but it said i had to go whoring first
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
