All Danes grow differently, that's why the growth charts are JUST GUIDELINES.  Some get their height growth out of the way right away, while others grow slowly past two years old.  You never know what you'll end up with until your done, and there's nothing you can do to change it. 

I know I'm kind of going to be a downer here.  It's just a pet peeve of mine when people brag about how big their Danes are.  You had nothing to do with your dog growing to the size he did.  Also it's UNHEALTHY for a Dane to be Ginormous.  I'm biased because I know all the problems Moni's had with poor Tenchi and how he has to have Asprin before he can even go out and play because of his joints.  When Nee and Tench go out together we're constantly saying "No the black one isnt' his baby.  He's the size a Dane is SUPPOSED to be.  The white one has health issues because he's so big", but no one cares.  This is why I wouldn't post Sanity's size on the "How big is your Dane" thread.  I get so excited to meet a fellow Dane lover, and then it all goes downhill when the first thing they want to know is "How big is yours?", and if mine is bigger they get all offended, or if he's smaller they get all smug and say (For example) "Well Thor is 190 pounds!"  What?  Do you want a cookie? 

There arent' really two "Types" of Danes.  Every breeder of Danes has a different way of adhering to the standard.  Yes there has been a sterotype that American Danes are taller and leaner and European Danes are heavier, stockier and more mastiffy, but you can find either type on either side of the pond.  EVERY breeder of EVERY breed of dog has a type, and certain characteristic s they want to enhance.  Sanity has lots of Euro in his blood.  He's VERY stocky, but he has two litter mates that are leaner, and one, is up around 38-40 inches if I remember correctly.  It's a crap shoot what you're going to get. 

OK why was I typing this again?  SEE KIDS?!?!?!  This is why you should never do drugs!

Food Discussion & Information / Re: Switching to EVO
« on: February 13, 2006, 02:28:27 pm »
First off I never go by the directions on the bag.  Depending if Einstiens the kind of dog who'll eat himself to death, I'd give him food until he lost interest, and that amount would be what he gets.  Also remember that Evo has NO fillers in it.  Sanity eats like 18 cups a day of a high quality holistic kibble, but only 6-8 of the Evo.  So they don't HAVE to eat alot.  :)

I'm sorry Amy, but if you look into the Saint Berdoodle as a Breed you'll find that they look nothing like a Saint Bernard other than size and maybe build.  Also, just because a dog is mixed with a poodle doesn't mean that it won't trigger allergies.  I don't want to seem mean or rude or anything, but I don't think that this mix breed is the answer you're looking for.

That's like literally 5 minutes from my house.  I can pull her, but I don't know if I can foster her.  I can help transport though......

I couldn't let the week end without at least a few more questions!  ;D

Which would be the hardest to give up cold turkey forever:  driving fast, swearing, or booze?

Ugh, I would say driving fast.  Swearing, even though I interject the F word in almost every other sentence, I have learned to turn off depending on the company.  Booze, as much as I like it, isn't really a driving force in my life.

What one talent that you lack would you most like to have?

Something musical.  I don't care what. 

What do you consider your best talent?

Ummmmm I'm not big on the whole talent thing, hence me making up for it with personality ;)  

What one physical feature would you most like to change about yourself?

My "Core" (Exercise speak for tummy, and hips)  Haha this way I get two for one!

What is your favorite physical feature?

Well there's the obvious one......... but one day those will fail me, and honestly, I love my eyes. 

What one aspect of your personality would you most like to change?

If you had asked me this a few years ago I could have given you a list a mile long.  But who I am today is exactly who I want to be personality wise.  I have no regrets.

What part of your personality do you like the most?

Balls to the wall Honey!

Who is next in the hot seat??

That'd be......... DALE

Here we go...

1.)  Social Butterfly or Wallflower?

Screw Butterfly, I'm a Tornado.

2.)  If you could only choose one - Beach or Mountains?

Mountains
3.)  Do you have any regrets or do you believe everything happens for a reason?

I think you make your life what it is.  If you spend too much time dwelling on the workings, you don't have time to enjoy it.  I've had some rough luck in my life.  I could sit and bemuse what I have done to deserve it, or I can suck it up and keep going.  No matter how bad you think you have it, someone somewhere has it worse.  Count your blessings and be happy with them. 

4.)  The President - Misunderstood or Miscreant?

I am one of those blessed people who can't vote, and as such can b*tch and moan and complain about everything, and say I never would have voted for "X" person.  However, as ummm slow and oblivious as I think our Commander and Chief is, I think it could be worse.
5.)  If you could only choose one - appetizer or dessert?

Dang it.  Bread or chocolate?  Those are my two choices?  My two loves of the culinary world?  I would HAVE to say Dessert.

6.)  Tea - Iced, Hot, or Long Island?

Never had a Long Island, but booze makes everything better.  :P

Ok!  I warned you ... I was thinking of the cheesiest questions I could think of just to ask you!  I mean, I already know the juicy stuff anyways ;)

1.  What time were you born?
I dunno.  After 13 hours of my mother screaming.
2.  What is your favorite color?
BLUE! Because Jenn is blue!  ;D
3.  What is your favorite month?
October
4.  What is your favorite sweet treat?
CHOCOLATE
5.  If you could only have one, would it be a cell phone or house phone?
Cell.  I'm all about the instant gratification.
6.  Its February and snowing, but you still want Taco Bell.  Do you break out the hoochie dress anyways?
Yup.  Gotta have the hoocie dress.  besides it enhances certain assets.  ;)
7.  Did they take the Crunch Wrap Supreme away for a week just to toy with my emotions?
No, they took ti away because the "Good to Go" guy had to go to rehab.   
8.  If you found the perfect pair of shoes, and they were a 1/2 size too big or too little, would you buy them and rock them anyways?
I do that all the time :P

I can't think of anything else original ... so you get off easy on this one  ;D

LOVE YOUSE!!!

I found this poor post just hanging out near the bottom :o

Where/what do you think you will/be doing in 10 years?

How many big paws do you think you will have by then?

p.s.....you have to try a martini..they are the best ;)  Green apple is REALLY goo :o

I don't know WHERE I'll be.  I want to be the mommy of Matt's babies, and writing my books with a passel of dogs around.  I think 3 is my magic number.  MAYBE 4, but I can't handle any more than that emotionally.  I was the kind of girl who would circulate which one of my stuffed animals I slept/played with so no one would feel left out.  I don't think that I could give 5 or more dogs that kind of attention.

Who is your fav BPO dog & why?

Other than Neeners?  :P  I'm going to be a wicked pansy and say Tenchi.  I guess because I see what he goes through because of how big he is, and I see his personality (Mommy I don't SEE you, I don't have to listen!", and he literally is the BEST ambassador for the breed I love EVER!

Yes....but do you talk to him through the TV??


I tell Matt that I'm going to leave him for Brian Urlacher all the time.  And every time he does something amazing (ie Every game ;)  ) I jump up and down and squeal "THAT'S IT BABY!"  Then I smack Matt in the head and say "That's my man!"

Hey, I figure if they're at home watching football with me, they're not getting in trouble somewhere.  Then again, this is the girl who is at this moment wearing a Bears Jersey :P

It's not the actual sporting that bugs me--other than football--it's the SPECTATING FANBOY thing.  I'm happy for a guy to go ahead and PLAY anything that suits him.  Golf every day!  Join a bowling team!  If he's are playing in a basketball game or a soccer game or whatever, I will gladly attend and cheer for him.  Hunt and fish to your heart's content.

But I cannot bear, just cannot--I know this is weird, but it's just how I AM--I cannot STAND for people to sit on the couch (or in a recliner or a bean bag or whatever) surrounded by munchies and drinks, with the television at 90% of his volume, and watch and scream and yell as if they're in a 90,000 seat arena, instead of 15 feet from my bedroom!  And do this all day, if not ALL BLOODY WEEKEND. 

And I can't think of a more annoying thing for anyone to want to talk about than how well someone they've never even been in the same CITY with, much less know personally, kicks or throws or catches some generally spherical object.  (If it's not you or your immediate family who's doing it, WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW THIS? )

Especially annoying if they've just met you and you've said, "I'm not into sports at all." 

I mean, Everyone has their perfect person.   :D


All I can say is Matt just read this over my shoulder, and he said "If I really wanted to be a **** I could say the same thing about you (meaning ME) about your obsessive compulsive dog hobby which forces you to spend endless hours on the internet meddling with people you've never met, and chastizing those who don't uphold your way of thinking when it comes to dogs, and sends you upstairs afterwards hoarse from screaming."  Then again, i'm an extreme case  ;D
