A little perspective

May I start by saying that a 155 pound Great Dane is NOT a lap dog?????? Could someone please tell our guest dogs that? :) We currently have our three dogs - 15 pound Cairn Terrier, 13 pound Sheltie and 6 pound cute-as-a-button mutt - along with two overnight guest dogs, Gracie and Daisy.

Daisy is a 105 pound black and white spotted Great Dane. Gracie is a 155 pound grey and white GD. Gracie seems to think she is a lap dog, and will BACK up into your lap. She puts her full weight down, but her front end is still standing up. I actually had to move Shasta quickly once because I saw Gracie backing towards my chair and I was afraid she would sit on him *laugh*

BTW - got my car last night and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is Gracie. Notice she is way taller than our fireplace:

This is Daisy. That is my couch coming up to just below her eye level. She's the 'short one':

I call this one 'Food Chain'. Gracie watches Shasta chewing on a stick:

This one....'Appetizer'. Gracie's paw is about the size of Shasta's head:

I couldn't get a picture of Michael and Matthew with BOTH guest dogs, but I did get one with Gracie 'sitting' on the couch with them:

OMFG How cute!

We had a 115 pound Giant Schnauzer when I was a teenager, I really miss him. He, too, thought he was a lap dog. If you sat on the floor, you were free game.

We want a couple of Great Danes!! Those are awesome dogs! Not sure they're the best *lap dogs*, but the ones I've been around seem to think that they are, lol! Great pictures!

Btw, did you see that horrendous game last weekend?? They've gotta start playing earlier in the day. I honestly couldn't sleep Saturday night after that---and it was friggin' midnight!!
