My dog likes to do that too.  It doesn't make any difference what size the dog is.  He just likes to play.

Those are amazing pictures -- very clear, sharp, and colorful.  What kind of camera did you use?

Those pictures were taken by my step son the Marine, he bought that camera in Japan when he was stationed there and I think he paid a few thousand for it. He has always taken remarkable pictures even with his first Sony digital when he was in high school.

Here are a couple pictures from my camera with me behind the button, big difference.
Size really doesn't matter to Winston either. Thats his pal Jake from up north, next summer Jake will be towering over Winston.

Nice pictures though.  They look like they're having fun.

How about a 170# "Lapdog"?  This is Festus, our 3 year old Great Dane on my lap....(I'm 6'4".... wacko)


Wow! What a beast! What type of disposition does he have? I think I'd call him Boss.

We've had three Great Danes, and they've all been big babies - they'll roar at the door when someone knocks and then run to get a stuffed teddy bear to present to the visitor.  Intimidating, but really harmless.

That big fellow gets very nervous if he doesn't get some "lap time" with me for a bit every day....

I have had little close encounters with Great Danes, but an acquaintance told me they had to have their GD destroyed for the aggressive behavior exhibited by it.

Randy, did you take your dog to a ski resort or do you live in the northern part of Georgia?

Thats a shot out the front door this morning.....

I'm an hour north of Atlanta.

The good news is (unlike Michigan), it'll be gone in a week or so.

In Michigan it could be gone in a week or two, then be back in May.

Well, shoot, there's just no easy way to say this.   It is with a heavy heart that I am reporting the passing of my best friend for the past 13 years.   When I joined the forum I chose the name Tuffythepug in honor of my buddy Tuffy.    We've had him since he was a pup and we were with him as he drew his last breath on Monday morning after declining health over the past several months.   He will forever be remembered as a faithful companion and one of the best dogs a person could hope to know.

Newcomers probably won't take much notice of this but my forum friends who have gotten to know me here will understand how devastating this is to our family.   

Please join me in taking a moment to remember this little guy.
He never met anyone who he didn't take a liking to.  He would have been a terrible guard dog but he was the best companion you could every hope for.

I am so sorry, Tuffy. We have a ranch with over 60 animals and they are all family. It hurts to lose them. Tuffy seemed like one of your children, though.

My condolences.  It's very hard to loose a beloved pet.

scoutsteffLV,
  Yeah, I know that it's going to take a long, long time for us to get over this loss.  We are trying hard to focus on all the fun he brought into our lives rather than dwell on the hole left in our hearts.   

Your Aerdales are great looking dogs.    We have a good friend who has one and we just love her.    We had thought about getting one ourselves but we just don't have a big enough yard or enough energy to keep up with a large dog.

+1   The heartache does go away, but it takes some time. Memories of Gump made me weep for several months, but now they are all good ones, (except his illness at the end).

                        Don't know what else to say Lynn, sorry I don't have better words to console you. Tuffy was a good dog and well loved. He had the best life a dog could have and I'm glad I got to see him.

So sorry to hear about Tuffy.  I haven't frequented this forum enough to really know anyone, but I always recognized you because of the great photo.  Godspeed Tuffy.

Lynn,
So sorry to hear that Tuffy has passed, I know exactly what you and your family are going through. It's hard to lose your best friend.  It took us 2 years before we got another dog but just this morning I said to my wife, maybe Rambo was reincarnated in Winston. He just seems to be a lot like him in spirit.  Hang in there, every day gets a little easier as you remember all the good times you spent together. And remember, as long as you hang around this forum Tuffy's name will never be forgotten.

RIP Tuffy
