Day 158

1. Encountering a huge Great Dane at the reception area of my morning appointment.

2. Seeing a mailman enter the location five minutes later, and witnessing a friendly greeting between the two.  (So  much for the dog/mailman enmity.)

3. Getting to pet the huge (yet very gentle) animal – and realizing his head is as big as one of my pups.  🙂

The office dog, watching for visitors…

…then turning to keep his eyes on the action in the shop.

      He was a sweetheart. Such a good demeanor; he even tolerated all of the very young, rather rowdy kids that were in the office with calm, quiet patience.

    I used to know a Great Dane with a beautiful fawn coat named “Dame”. I was walking her for the first time and seriously underestimated her strength and she got away from me on a busy street. Fortunately when she went up to a man in a car who has stopped so as not to hit her, she went to his open window and he grabbed her collar. Lesson learned. When you walk a Great Dane, think pony not dog!

      Even when our tiny 9- and 11-pound dogs get excited, they can pull and become “strong”; I can only imagine what a truly powerful dog could do! I definitely imagine walking a Great Dane would be similar to managing a horse. Yet I have to admit, the scene I played in my mind when I read your comment did seem pretty funny (to an observer). 🙂

        Looking back now, I can see how the Great Dane named Dame was actually humoring me into thinking I was walking her until she wanted to go in a different direction and it was – bye!
