    Here is a pic of Heidi with her Purple panda napping on the couch. And a pic of the 2 of them looking out the window. Doesn't Gus look all better?

    She usually has a "baby" in her mouth. She was rescued from a puppy mill, having many litters before I got her at 3 1/2 years old. So she always has to carry something around with her. Right now it is the purple panda; she has a preference for all things purple.

    Obviously not on the couch. I have a chair she lets me sit in. Since they are not allowed to go upstairs to the bedroom because of Gus's surgery, she decided to claim the couch. She likes to sit on laps. And if anyone comes in and sits on the couch she will try to squeeze them off or bark till they make room for her. She is one funny dog, quite the talker. Never had a dane before, but sure love her and she is as gentle as can be with kids.

    I love them all! Big, small, medium...LOL! Actually, I always had big dogs and really didn't care for little "yappy" dogs but then my DD got the little furbaby in my avatar (and we know who's dog she became) and now I love the little ones too :D What I have learned is that little dogs are sometimes not well behaved because they are not trained as well. My dad spent alot of time with our little furbaby before he died and he insisted that we train her not to bite, to lay on her back, etc. He always had Rott's so teaching them "who's the boss" was very important and he did the same thing with our little 4 pound bundle. He made a good point saying that we let tiny dogs chew on our fingers, jump up on us, etc. because they are so little...then it becomes a problem. So thanks to him, our little furball is very well behaved :D
    Oh...and VERY loved!! :D

    She is a small dane, my vet says she is a combo of 2 kinds of dane, he thinks a fawn and I forget which other. I love her ears.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures. Your babies are so beautiful. I am so glad Gus is doing so well. I have a very long and lanky female lab, will be one next week, who always has a baby (stuffed of course) in her mouth. We laugh saying she will make a good mommy but I have had her fixed so she will never be able to.

    Yes, Gus is much better, I think pretty much back to normal. He goes on the 23rd for his last visit with the surgeon. Hopefully he will be given a clean bill of health and be able to resume normal activity. We are still sleeping on the air mattress in the little room. Every time I go up to the bedroom to get dressed Gus tries to figure out how to get over the gate. And I am tired of these COLD treks outside many times a day. I am getting my exercise though. And I do still have a sewing machine in the kitchen, keeps them company.

    Oh how I love Great Danes, they are some of the gentlest dogs ever! We lost ours to cancer 4 years ago and still miss her everyday. Your pups are awesome.
