Please do explain the slightly blind comment?
I've lived in an apartment for the past 5 years....my last dane spent her senior years in an apartment and my current dane grew up in an apt.
It doesn't take a millionairre with a palatial home to own a dog (large or small)...only a dedicated owner who will tend to his/her dog's needs. Great danes DO make wonderful inside pets, regardless of the size of the home. They take up minimal space inside, but yes, they will hog your sofa and bed if you let them. They do require outdoor exercise, but so do all dogs.
A RESPONSIBLE owner can certainly own a dane in small quarters. An IRRESPONSIBLE owner should not have any pet, regardless of the size of their home.
I'm just curious how I'm slightly blind?
You hung the moon, the stars, and everything in between. I miss you, Hannah.
