I love big dogs...but they don't last so long...a big dog is only predicted to live 6 - 7 years...That would break my heart!

Just saw on TV this morning an episode of Dog Tales?? where there was a center for troubled children and they had a Newfoundland. He was a big dog. A lady who worked there knew a dog would be great for the children but the dog couldn't stay at the center. So she got him and took him to work with her everyday.The children loved him.

It's interesting that they chose such a big dog. It could certainly handle any rough treatment the more problematic ones might dish out tho.

I big dogs. I want a great dane sooooo bad. We have a therapy dog at work that is about 160lbs and he's such a teddy bear. If I sit on the floor to say HI to him he will literally turn around to sit in my lap

My neighbor had two Great Danes and one died recently of old age. The other one is also aging so they got two puppies. HOLY COW! They are only 4 mos old and they are almost the size of Labs! Really cute though!

vaknitter - I saw a thing on tv that said that Great Danes are just big lap dogs. So sweet & affectionate.
