    i saw gibson at a local neighborhood dog event over the summer in the san jose area. i have a great dane too, but he's not nearly that tall (though he is taller than me when he's on his hind legs - probably about 5'6"). the only thing i worry about with gibson is strain on his knees and hips from being made to stand so much. dogs aren't made to stand on their hind legs like that, and i'm sure he weighs over 150 lbs, so that can't be good over time...

    Holy moly... that is one tall doggie. I prefer big dogs... that is until they do precisely that-- stand on their hind legs and tower over me. :eek: He looks like a sweetie, though.

    cute

    at 3 years old, he may get even bigger, or at least heavier

    he looks like a big puppy still somewhat in his awkward phase

    Seriously... I've met nastier meaner little dogs than big ones. There was this one woman in the area who walked her doberman and her doberman-marking-look-alike chihuahua all the time-- the tiny one was evil, pure evil, but the big doberman was the biggest sweetheart.

    Amazing. It's good that Great Danes are generally so even-tempered. We had a neighbor that raised them, and one day one of her puppies got out and was roaming the neighborhood. Our dog was barking one night about 10:00 and I went out to get her inside and saw this dog looking over our gate, which was 4' tall. This dog was 6 months old.

    We took her home, and she was still a rather clumsy puppy. Let me tell you, walking her back you knew when she ran into you. She almost knocked me over a couple times (I'm about 6' and was about 190 lbs at the time).

    Our neighbors have 3 chihuahuas and they tend to roam the neighborhood unattended. Except in our yard, since one of them almost got eaten by our labs when they wandered into our yard (and our dogs are sweethearts).

    They're just these little yippy nasty buggers. I know some can be fine, but these are just annoying.

    A guy I work with has a Saint Bernard and a VW Cabriolet. He brought his dog to work on an off day, when it was a mere pup. At 9 months of age, the dog was 120 pounds. It was kinda funny seeing him get the dog back into the car when he left. The dog, sitting in the passenger seat, was taller than the man.

    Don't know how related it is, but he recently traded in that Cabrio for a Honda Element.

    Dogs shouldn't be smelly. If they are fed the right diet, they actually smell 'normal'. My dog has a pleasant smell. Her natural odor is actually quite pleasant and comforting, especially when I am cuddling with her in bed.

    Wow. That's a fine quote. :rolleyes:

    Although the more I read it, the more it makes me laugh.

    ANYway... cool dog. I've known a number of that breed, and they've all been sweethearts.

    And KT: wait until you get married. You think dogs are bad? ;)

    :D Class!

    you can put deodorant on a human.

    ...my logic is astounding, yes.

    edit to add:
    blah. that's what pre-nups are for.
    "by signing this document, I promise to shower every day" or something along those lines.

    kt = best amateur lawyer ever!
