Thanks Foxywrench for the information....very interesting. My goodness! No wonder your heart is with the Danes. That story shows your devotion even form such a young child. You had nice parents who supported you in that.

lol, doberluv, they wernt realy supporting me...they knew if they didnt say yes i would have gone off with my dog lol. i was a stubborn child and we lived next to a big sports feild with woodland along the back that whent off for miles of trails, i used to dissapear for days into the woods...once i got king i stayed home...i think they realized if they told me to get rid of him id just wander off too, i had plans to join the circus, run off with the gypsies and become a river rat over my early years, King gave me a reason to stay around...

but they are an amazing breed, and when you can look directly in the eyes of a dog like him (we were eye to eye level for a few years lol) you see right into their soul. they truly are gentle giants but dont be mistaken, they are a mastif breed, and king would put himself between me any stranger we came across, especially men, he seemed to know the good and bad people, if a police officer came along he would hold back and sit calmly, if a strange worrysome looking man came along he would stand between us, if the guy didnt back away hed let out a low growl and lower his head.
He couldnt hear a thing but i swear he could read minds! if you have the time and space for those giant lap dogs, it opens your eyes to the world.

i hope one day i find him again in another dane, i belive fully in reincarnation and just know that one day we will meet again...and ill know him when i see him. 11 years is a long time for a dane to "hang around" he knew how much i needed him.

my parents have always thought my "slight" obsession with animals is a litle crazy, but there my life line.
i love my chihuahuas more than anything, there my babies and i cant have kids so they will be my kids forever. but i do miss the pure friendship of my dane.

Stunning.

Yes, danes typically have short lives, but friends and aquaintances have had danes live well into their teens. I have recently added a new page to my website about golden oldie danes - I have had several entries, and I am awaiting the stories of 4 different danes that have seen their 13th and/or 14th birthdays.

A dear friend of mine had a merle who lived past 14 and has a 13+ dane now.

While it's not terribly common to see danes over 13 to 14, careful breeding is making it more of a likelihood.

In Germany (where Great Danes are the "National Dog" and are highly revered), the life expectancy for a dane is much greater than here in America. Food for thought.

I have an 11 year old dane that will be 12 in May.

Danes are in my heart too. I was talking to my sister about our old Sheltie, "Tootsie" (Marionette She's On a Roll), and how much she missed her, and I said, you know, I loved Tootsie, but I don't love SHELTIES. I LOVE danes, I LOVE dobermans, I LOVE mini aussies, breeds that definitely are tied into my life, not just single representatives from each breed.

She has very lovely dogs. Am partial to fawn and brindle danes myself.

Congrats. That's great news for dane folks. I hear more and more about danes surpassing their "life expectancy". It's music to my ears!

No kidding. I was a kid when we got Sarah, and it was purely "by accident" - we were helping her breeder sell a few pups on this side of the border and she sent pups to us to care for - Sarah was one of the first to arrive and we just fell in love. When I was a bit older, I did some research and realized what a short life expectancy they have - I was shattered - I have cherished every second I have had with this girl since she turned 7. She has ONLY GOTTEN BETTER with age, I enjoy her so much as an old girl. She doesn't do *much*, but she never did - potters around the house, scowls at the cats, lays in the sun, sleeps in my bed, sometimes she digs a hole.
