nicco--your dog is so cute! I do have to admit she has a "cow-like" print, but I think that's so pretty. I met a Dane around two weeks ago at a PetSmart with my Mom. She was one of the sweetest dogs I've met. I've liked Danes, but when I met that dog I immediately decided the Great Dane is a breed I would like to own in the future. She was a smaller Dane, but when she leaned against you, you could really feel her weight . She was just really sweet though, and I enjoyed meeting her.
