OK... so my sister raises danes in Iowa. One winter I was up visiting for 2 weeks over christmas. I went outside to bring the dogs back in and litterally tripped and fell over a "pile"!!!
It was frozen so hard it was like a tree root sticking up out of the ground!!!!! Luckily it was a rogue pile and I fell on the clean snow!!!
I love danes too, I just don't know if I could handle one in the house...They are couch/bed robbers from way back!!!
Cute fawn dane btw.
