Some dogs just don't realize, that they're no longer a lap dog.
my girl !
All pup owners know exactly what this is about.
Hahaha. My dog will just sit and bark at me if I'm eating a sandwich. Funny, she likes the bread more than the meat
Here's a guy that does a lot of animal rescues in LA and has a huge library of rescue videos.
The labradors are very cute!!!
Must have missed that post somehow. A friend of mine had a 140 lb Mastiff that thought it was a lap dog, as did her Great Dane. It was funny when they tried to join me on the couch and sit in my lap.
My favorite thread!
Huge aside-few months back -while walking Arty(Artimus-sic-small female greyhound)
we crossed paths with the BIGGEST dog I ever saw-maybe not heaviest-but tallest
The owner described him as some sort of Great Dane sub-breed-
I forgot what it was-perhaps it had some countries name associated with it
but he was called Gall-or Gael(yeah some Irish type name)
he was just 11 months old 180 lbs-and just HUGE- HUGE HEAD huge paws- HU-MON-GOUS!
Thank god-very friendly-goofy friendly-a very good thing!
Wonder if it might have been part Irish Wolfhound. I still remember years ago I lived in an apartment and there was a neighborhood Great Dane that stopped by one day, as he wandered freely around. He and I were basically eye to eye, which literally put the top of his head at 5 feet tall. Thank goodness he was very mellow. One of the funnier things I saw years ago was at the pet store, where they had a dog biscuit self serve set up, very similar to a salad bar. It was dog proof until a massive Saint Bernard walked up and started chowing down. He was reaching down, not up, to eat.
Thunderstruck-ha,ha-self serve dog biscuits- love that!
No it wasn't an Irish Wolf Hound-it looked just like every other Great Dane I have seen
just scaled up 1.3X or so-it was supposed to top out at 200 lbs -mostly "heavier built" rather than taller-they are sooo tall already
Sweet dog- THANK GOD!!
I looked it up-it must have been a European Great Dane-
the cut below said American Great Danes top out at 135 lbs-European much heavier
Gael must have been a Euro Great Dane-he was HUGE
An European Great Dane tends to weight in at 180lbs and up. Usually topping the scales at 220–240lbs. With that weight comes a much blockier body, heavier head…showing a lot of the Mastiff that was used to breed this gentle giant….they are just BIGGER as you can see by the few photos below.
Self service for owners, not dogs. I used to buy biscuits there because I walked a lot and always carried some as a peace offering for dogs I'd see when I was out.
Hilarious when the Great Dane opens the latch on the baby gate to get out. I'm amazed some people think dogs are dumb animals. There's some real brainpower behind figuring out how to pull that latch up then nudge the door open.
Adopted a new puppy last month. I've been looking for a golden, hoping to find one that needed a good home. The wife is in on a Facebook pet adoption group and showed me this guy's pic and I ripped the phone from her and nearly begged and cried to adopt him. We were 2nd in line and the 1st fell through. So, meet my new baby boy, Porter! He's a 1.5 year old Golden, 70 lbs, and absolutely amazing. I work at a nursing home and have brought him to work to socialize and the residents love him. He and Allison my black lab hit it off immediately.
What a beautiful Golden Pup James!!!
