I didn't expect my son to take on the project of finding the perfect dog. He researched, saved and monitored the classifieds until one day he told me he'd found a great deal on a dog and it was exactly the one he wanted... a Great Dane.
I believe I was in denial but I went along. After all, I'd promised him a big dog for the next one. He mapped out the way to the breeders house and we arrived. The owners had both mom and dad there for us to meet along with 8 pups. Having never seen a Great Dane I was speechless. The very friendly dad came up to my chest. His nose could touch my chin as he looked at me. I gingerly pet him and he leaned on me knocking me into the fence. Apparently leaning is one of their traits.

He loves to sit on your knee. Somehow he has no idea how big he is and still wants to be on your lap.
