I totally agree with both of you.  Personally I feel it's pure laziness on her part.  Period.  Honestly, many people didn't think she was ready for this pup, but she insisted she was.  I'm just upset that the puppy has to suffer for this girl's convenince.


Well my little visitors are gone.  I'm pretty relieved on all fronts.  First off, the easy one.  The kitten has gone to my mother as a birthday present (And I bought her all new kitty stuff.  I'm not THAT cheap).  She went shopping with my grandmother yesterday and when they went back to the house my mother fell head over heels.  So I'm ecstatic because my mom will take awesome care of her and I'll still get to see her all the time.  I was worried about my dad because he's not really a cat person, but she LOVES him.  When I went to bring the cat stuff she was sleeping on his belly (My dad has a lot of belly to sleep on).  Sanity's pretty upset about losing his kitty.  I guess he walked backwards in front of my mom the whole way to her car fussing and whining.  When I got home he was sniffing where her crate used to be and sighing.  Then he was moping around the house.  It was so sad I wanted to cry.

However when the puppy left no one cried.  It was hard enough to get rid of her.  I was supposed to take her back to the rescue last night.  I was driving to get Matt so he could go with me because I have to drive through some sketchy areas and it was late at night.  I was bringing Sanity with me too so I had a pretty full/protected car.  I was about 5 minutes from the house when the rescue lady informs me she has no room tonight.  Can I bring the puppy tomorrow morning?  I have to be at work at 8:30, I say, and she says "I can meet you in Nashua". 

So we plan on a meeting place and I decide I'll just spend the night at the Nashua house, and meet her at 7:30, which should give me time to get something at Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and get to work (Which is 30 minutes from Nashua).  Well Matt wakes me up at 7:19, the alarm didn't go off.  I throw on my clothes, put Sanity outside (He's the only one that doesn't bark when he's out and therefore doesn't wake the neighbors at ungodly hours), grab the puppy and run out to my car.  And I get there at 7:30 on the dot.  She isn't there.  So I wait.  I call work and tell them I'm gonna be late.  They're awesome and tell me to get there when I can get there, don't worry about it. (Then my boss yells in the background "Not like you do anything anyways!"). She finally shows up at 8:16.  Says puppy looks great, and very happy.  Yay I'm an awesome foster mommy!  Even to demon spawn puppies.

So my saga is over.  Sanity is probably going to go find something to mommy, so I'm sure I'll have something to tell you guys about soon.


In one of my other groups a girl has her 4 month old Dane pup in diapers because she kept going in the house.  She takes her out every hour (I think she needs to go out more often, but whatever), and she was spayed about a week ago.  But the more this girl says about the pup, the more I think it's just a potty training issue, not a health issue.  She was apparently tested for a UTI and the vet says she's fine, so this girl has resorted to the "Cute" diapers :-X

I've only heard of diapers being used for incontinence and the panties for bitches in heat, but never for potty training.  I would think this would be detrimental not only to the puppy's potty training, but mental and social development, not to mention dangerous if left alone and she decides to eat the diaper.  Any thoughts?

Sanity gets a lot of huge/funny looking Pitbull comments.  Once when I informed a man that he was in fact a Great Dane puppy, but that's OK alot of people say that, he looked at me with the MOST patronizing degrading look on his face and said "Sweety, ONLY pitbulls come in stripes".  Ooooooo I wanted to SMACK him.  I don't mind when people say something dumb (Like the lady who called the cops on us for starving our "Dalmation" who should weigh 80 pounds, ie our English Setter who is only supposed to weigh 35 pounds).  It bothers me when people insist that you're the idiot, and that you're some poor vulnerable schmuck.

Every hour.Consider yourself lucky when Spotakiss was a pup I had to take him out every half hour and then at night it seems like every two.Yes for some reason,maybes hes lonely,he gets me up still.

Sorry, this just reminds me of Sanity so much.  He'll wake me up at least twice every night with his big ole' head right in my face and start wuffing.  If I don't get up he'll start to fidget and talk to me and if I STILL don't get up he'll bark and howl.  When I do get up to let him out all he does is stare at the door and lean against my leg talking to me.  How can you get mad at him for wanting to spend time with his mommy?

This is my baby, a 98 Mercury Mountaineer.

Before that I had a 91 Exploder.  I loved that car to death but it was falling apart around me.  I can fit 1 Ginormous Dane, 1 average sized Dane and one fat Hobo in the back with room to spare.

But sometimes they want to sit in the front.

If I remember correctly, which I probably don't, Anatolians are one of those livestock guardian dogs.  Meant to live on their own.  Their very aloof and very dominant.


I tell them how much a well bred puppy costs, and if they balk at that I tell them they'll probably spend at LEAST twice that on them a year.  And that's if they're healthy!  I'll admit to when people ask me about any of my dogs I dwell on the negatives, mainly because I work in rescue, specializing in Breed Placement, and not alot of people are suited to the dogs I have. 

Sanity is overwhelmingly sensitive, always underfoot, talks (Alot of people think he's whining but I know the difference :) ), the medical problems they're prone to, the special care and research they need, the puppy span that lasts half their life, not to mention how when you have a big dog everything is more expenesive.  With Araby she's too smart and high strung for her own good, VERY stubborn, I wouldn't suggest her breed for a novice dog owner.  Hobo isn't really alot of work, but we got lucky with him as Chinooks CAN be very hard to train, and he's a runt so he's not as big as they can be, but when he blows coat it stinks.

I guess when you have a big dog that people notice, like it or not you open yourself up for this stuff.  What really gets me is how every single person who says "You got a Saddle for that thing?" or "Who's walking who?" thinks that they're the very first person to ever say that to you.   I just want to stare at them and scream "SHUT UPPPPPP!!!!!!"

Thank you all for your welcome.  I'm a dork in the fact that the only websites I ever go to are my Big Dog ones, and I'm psyched that I found this one.  

I'm looking at getting another Dane either a show Brindle or a Blue Porcelain from Europe but that won't be till Nee (Sanity) is at least 4 or 5.  And I'm a picture freak so you don't have to worry about that! :D

When Sanity, my Dane, was about 5 months old, I took him to Petsmart.  He was being SUCH a good boy what with all these people ogling him, little kids squealing and running towards him.  I was looking at collars (As we go through them pretty fast) and I hear this scrabbling noise.  I look up to see this big guy getting dragged down the aisle by his pitty, who's on a Flexi. (Personal Not I HATE Flexis)  Now I'm only 5 feet tall, and even at 5 months, Sanity was a pretty big boy, but he was good and I always had control of him.  He was just sitting there when this pit starts to hump him.  I push the dog off of Sanity and glare at this enormous man, who was just staring at my dog.  "What the H*** is that?" he asked me.  I said "He's a Great Dane puppy."  The guy asked how big he was going to get and I told him that his father was 36" and around 160 pounds.  The guy answered "What kind of idiot would want a dog that big?"  I looked him straight in the belly button and said "I could ask what kind of idiot wants a dog they can't control but I already know the answer to that one"

Hello.  My name is Ang and I found this board by following a link, which led to a link, which led to a link :)  I am the proud mother of a 10 month old Onyx Dane puppy named Sanity, who is my world, as unhealthy as that may be.  My fiance and I also have a 3 year old Llewllin English Setter, Araby, who's his pride and joy, and a 1 year old Chinook, Hobo, who in reality is Araby's dog.    I really like what I've seen of here so far and hope to become very involved.
