My parents raised Danes when I was a kid.
We had a merle that was easily over 7 foot tall on his hinds.
He could stand and look over a 6 foot fence.
He was goofy as all hell.
He got stuck under the house and we had to tear out floor boards to get him out.
His name was "Bosley."
Danes are an awesome breed.

That looks like a huge dog! Kids could probably ride him, he's so big lol. So, do you walk him or does he walk you?

Love the eyes. Sir Winfred has beautiful eyes.
The timing of this new forum is impeccable. THANKS JUDE11 and SITE OWNERS!

When I logged on after an exhausting day of doggy hospice care. I'm greeted by a new Forum Icon with a Pug. My 9 year old AmalgaMUTT named MYLO ( My Little One. Part PittBull/Boston/Jack Russell part god bless'em ) is going through liver failure. Thus requiring me hand feed him, as well as delivering 500 ml's of fluids Sub'Q.
His kidneys took a hit too. He's not hurting. But is sick. I'll know more on Saturday what to do.

These guys are our family. Love them. Remember them.

I would like to give him smooches. Such a handsome boy. Every time I meet a great dane they turn out to be the sweetest goofballs!

I get the impression they are the biggest (and largest) lap dogs.

10/10 would spoil and snuggle.

What a beautiful dog! They are great dogs too.

My little white fluffy fur ball type of a dog (looks much like Domo1’s cat) thinks of herself as being a Great Dane.

When I first took her home at the tender age of 6 weeks, my friends had a Great Dane called Albert. Ever since then my little dog thinks she is a Great Dane and is overly brave. Not only that, she learned an important mannerism doing some doggy business from him and still today pretends to be a male Great Dane.

Great new forum. I love the logo, I must say next to my little dog I like the Pugs second best.

A majestic beastie!, is he a normal dog, or does he have strange quirks?,
All the best ( and a pat on the head for fred!)

Apt name for your magnificent dog you have there.
Not a dog person myself but he sure is handsome.
Could you make a saddle for him and get a monkey riding him please?.

Wow.
He is one handsome fella.
I love the large breeds so much. I've just had so much heartache with them, I don't know if I can do it again. Only ours were the English Mastiffs. Such big babies.

How old is he?

Sir Winfred is a beaut - my hats off for seemingly taking excellent care of your high-maintenance ( just a breed thing ) dog... He looks very well mannered and gentle as a bear cub lol.

I've spent some time with Danes and they're a special breed. I wouldn't mind a couple.

- Sir Winston; You chomp some stuff up bubba.

He looks like he can still counter surf when he is sitting down.

I actually pictured that in my head...

Fred sitting there by the counter looking all innocent with his big brown eyes, dad turns his head for two minutes to grab something out of the fridge, Fred slowly inches his head towards the counter, sticks his tongue out and curls it around dad's bacon sandwich, sucks it into his mouth with one fell swoop. Aaaand gulp...

Job well done Fredly !

Just got time to get back t this thread...

Fredly (as I call him) is a gentle giant who stands 6'-10" when he straightens up on his hind legs, he never steal my food but he does give EVERYTHING a good and thorough "sniff". Seriously, he never licks anything or touches it, but he does get a great smell of it all.

He's truly the best behaved dog I've ever had and I've had several over these long years... He's utterly goofy but amazingly agile and athletic, he can run, full tilt, through all areas of the house and never so much as bump anything, it's quite a site. The least clumsy Dane I've ever met but you'd never know it if you spent any "regular" time with him, he seems so clumsy and slow, but, it's all an act, he's agile and brilliant honestly.

MirthfulMe and Fredt T have met him and spent time here at the house with him, they left with all their parts intact and an affection for the Dane.


He's just the best, and at 4-1/2 years old I hope to have him with us for many years to come in spite of the breed's notoriously "short" life span.

We did lots when he was young to hopefully ensure a maximum life span, low protein diet as a pup is must for the giant breeds, forego the want to build a huge dog and limit the protein at the start, saves them lots of grief as they age.

That said, he still weighs in at a light 170 pounds, his sire was 190+ and his mother was 178 so he is a runt.
Anyway, great thread and great new forum, I'm really glad Fredly is well received.


I love seeing all the animals in this new forum, it's just freaking great! Such a nice dalliance from all the rotten # we usually cover.

He can but (as I said in my previous post) he doesn't, he's about 5' tall sitting straight backed on his haunches.


ETA: Those tiles on the floor in the kitchen are 18" x 18" so that at least gives you a little scale of his girth.

Ah he's almost an exact twin of my female great dane 'Marma' - she just turned 2!

Fredly's pedigree includes his grandsire, "Sir Marmaduke". We got him from a respected breeder in Texas, is your Marma from Texas? It would be pretty cool to learn that two ATSers have Danes from the same blood line.


ETA: Pictures! Put up a photo, I'd love to see her.
