    Worlds Largest Great Dane!

    Looks real to me. Glad I don't have to clean his mess up!

    Looks retouched to me.
    Look at his legs in the pic of them on the sofa.

    Probably retouched, my parents had a dane over 200 lbs, we have had danes for years, great dogs, short life span.
    Point is, that dog would close to 300 lbs if it were really that long.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Well, the article says 245lbs. Guinness is supposed to be checking it out. If it is real, it will be the biggest. I'll try Snopes, for what it's worth.

    I had a dane so big it would try and pick up the neighbors terrier like a squeaky toy.
    Never hurt it, just wanted to carry it around hanging off its face like that, the little dog would hang off its jaw meat and my dog would walk around and wag its tail, big dumb lovable dogs.

    I think I'd have to get an insurance policy on something like that!
    His hips will go out in a year or two. Poor guy. He will make the owners a ton of money before he dies though.

    That one looks like a gentle giant. Shetland pony almost.

    I went with my wife to an animal shelter that she helped with an adoption program awhile back and they had a great dane named Queeny that lived there. She had alot of medical problems and was left at the shelter. Nobody had the heart to put her down. I would take her on walks every time I went to the shelter and she got to know when I was there and and would find me and lean on me till I took her out. Great dog I miss her alot.

    I love all dogs, just some more than others. I love big dogs much more than the useless yapping rats (not that I don't like them, just irritate me lol).

    Sad thing is big dogs like that or even normal sized big dogs don't last as long as they should

    Yea. I'm starting to prepare to be loosing my GSD of 11 years. His hips are getting real weak. We can still walk him, but he's slow gettin' up. He's not incontinent yet so, I'm hoping 2 more years.
