I’m so excited about living with my first Great Dane! 37 days until I’m available to take a foster Dane (but who’s really counting?)

I need to get prepared, though. As I’ve mentioned before, there’s only little of Roxie’s stuff that I could use for a Dane and that’s only if the Dane is a puppy.

great-dane-fawn-brindle-tongue-cropped-earsLast weekend, Christian and I attended an event put on by the volunteers at Great Dane Love, a Great Dane rescue group in Central Florida. Our goal is to attend as many Great Dane/English Mastiff/big dog events as possible, so that we can talk with real owners about their experiences with their dogs and so that we can interact with them ourselves.

We were there to learn anything about Great Danes. We told them that we are in love with the breed, but don’t have enough money/expertise to own one yet. Because of this, our main topic of conversation was their fostering process and how we could fit into it.
