haha, my border collies are as big as this dog's head. I've seen another very big great Dane, maybe that was the deceased dog, don't know.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

But wasn't that a great story? I don't think the dog's people parents did anything untoward to have it gain its size...I think it was all genetic. I do hope he lives a good, long life!

I saw a picture of this one and his owner before and thought for sure it was one of those altered pictures.  I see it's not.  The pet looks very docile but wouldn't it be like having a horse in the house?

Thanks for sharing.
