Great Dane Afraid of the Bathtub
It will never cease to amuse me when I see a 150+ pound dog afraid of little things. The Great Dane that came with his owners to inspect our house before we began fostering was afraid of going into the backyard because the screen door in front of him was slightly in his way.
Waking Up an English Mastiff
The infamous English Mastiff video. Freaking adorable, but also controversial. A bunch of people got very upset that the dog wasn’t listening to her, but there is a clear difference between a casual voice and a commanding voice. She was obviously playing with him and he knew it (by the way, she posted a follow-up video). Bubba and Roxie don’t listen to my commands unless I say them in a stern voice. If I say “siiiit” in a silly voice, they will not sit, just wag their tails.

Those jowls are no joke.
GUILTIEST GREAT DANE EVER!

And then at the end, he’s all:
