Great Danes...

Can't live with them, can't live without them! I thought this disease that my hubby has in regards to raising the biggest dogs he can possibly find was just something he suffered from, my favorite pioneer lady however, has proven me wrong.

I don't know if it's the sad puppy dogs eyes that they have from the time of birth to the time of death or the need to sit on the couch as if they were human beings or what. You just can't say no to these creatures they are pathetic sad saps that you just can't help but take aside and squeeze until they almost burst from your love. Meet Mr. No Name, this lovely little fellow showed up on The Pioneer Womans front porch this morning and I'll be darned if she didn't let him in just like my Husband would have done. She also fed him and now I wonder if she will keep him. What kind of power do these wonderful creatures hold that makes people unable to use Great Dane and heck no in the same sentence?? Click on "The Pioneer Womans" and go directly to her blog to read more!

Oh, the Great Danes! Ernesto, my fiance,grew up with one of those, and she has made such an impact on his life! Her death still pains him (she was 8 years old, thyroid cancer, but apparently big dogs generally live a shorter live anyway), but he loves to tell me stories about her all the time! He says that Great Danes are not very active, or clever, but are fiercely protective, like to be hugged and played with, and have a very distinct look in their eyes, that makes it impossible NOT to love them!
