Give me a big open field to run because my stride is so huge, it doesn’t take me long at all to get to where I want to go. Whilst every other pet is scampering toward the picnic table, I know they are possibly in for some disappointment because I can get there much quicker and I can hoover the treats in before any of them can blink. It’s not that I am greedy, it’s just that I am large and my appetite is just a wee tad bigger than most pets. You do understand, don’t you?
Just look at my long sleek neck, my beautiful floppy ears and my mischievous grin. I am a gentle giant so if I am standing still, now is the time to enlist my help to reach those forbidden places that I can see, but you can only imagine. Climb up and take a ride if you dare. Hold on tight because when I start running my powerful legs leap high. Last night I was dreaming and I think I managed to fit one pet wrapped around my neck, three along my back, one rode on my tail and believe it or not one pet was able to ride on my head. I know we all had lots of fun.
Do you have any idea how difficult it is for me to sit still? I am aching to leap about and chase butterflies and dragonflies through what they think is tall grass, but is for me, just green toe ticklers. Being a Great Dane is the best. My tongue is so long, I could slurp you from your tummy to your forehead in one small lick. It’s also easy for me to reach counter tops where I can partake of morsels than hoomans think are safely stored.
