If you don't fall over under that weight, that is. Smile


They also do the running around in a big circle thing charging back at you knocking you over.

It's particularly fun when you don't realise that they are doing the circle thing and they run between your legs, lifting you up in the air and landing you in a cow pat.

Oh how I laughed.

And yet they can be ever so gentle and sensitive. When I was recovering from undiagnosed Lyme disease, I was barely able to walk at all. A Dane became my walking stick. She would stay glued to my side as I moved, allowing me to steady myself by holding on to her for dear life. She would navigate slowly and carefully, steady as a rock. The height of the dog was just perfect. No one taught her to do this, she just did it.

RE: New Puppy
Ok, the rescue has dropped off the list - she doesn't like small dogs.

The upper end breeder also has dropped off the list - she only has one female left and wants over $3000 for her, plus shipping and crate etc. Buying the last of a litter without being able to interact is a bit risky and that is too much money.

The local breeder remains in the race and I will see her on Sunday.

And there is a new contender: Not a Dane, but an English Mastiff. These are the biggest breed there is - not the tallest but the biggest. A weight of 200 pounds is not unusual. They are massive.

Love them but you really have to want a huge dog. Smile

That puppy is adorable.

Good luck with the local one on Sunday.

I hope the 3,000 covers the cost of the bucket for the drool.

Really? For the Mastiff probably. But she is local. Neither of my Danes ever drooled, and long ago I had a Saint Bernard who only drooled when totally overheated.

Sorry my mistake. I was thinking that the 3,000 was for the English Mastiff. My parents have a bullmastiff cross which drools quite badly. The Danes never did. They're lovely like that. They also never bit my head like my parent's bull mastiff once did.

RE: New Puppy
This season's must-have look is the off-the-face drool!

Make it look like beauty comes naturally to you by casually throwing on some drool before leaving the house.

RE: New Puppy
One of my best friends has a mastiff, she's currently 235 pounds.

She is the most adorable, most gentle thing ever. She had to be carefully trained tho to never jump on anyone. At her weight she could do damage.

They have a huge tv and she will watch it...it's funny cause she'll jump up and walk straight to the tv...and blocks the whole set.

Her bed is a full sized mattress on the floor -- they said it was cheaper than buying a dog bed for her.

I absolutely -- adore her...She's easy going and fun. My dog adores her too...he looks like a puppy beside her. Smile

They call her Willow...which just cracks me up.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
