The Great Dane sighting!

Hi everyone! Sorry I havent posted in a little while, school has started up again so Tonya hasn't had very much time to help me write a blog. This also means that I haven't been getting as much attention as usual this past week. (how can they resist my cute, "I'm the best dog in the world" face?!) They did, however have time to take me to the dog park this weekend! We went to the dog park and met up with Tonya's friend's dog, named Maybell. Maybell is a a rottweiler, labrador mix; we had only met each other one other time, when we were both puppies, but we still had lots of fun together! Guess what else?! I saw two, full grown, Great Danes, just like my blog friend Honey the Great Dane! Tonya had only seen a Great Dane in real life once before, a couple of years ago; and I, myself had never seen one before. They were soooo big!! One was a brindle Dane (which is like a tiger stripe pattern), and the other one was a mantle dane. (black with a white tummy) Tonya was so excited! Ever since she was little girl she has wanted a Great Dane! (thank goodness mom doesn't really like big dogs, or else they would not have gotten me!) They were very well behaved, and even though they were very gentle with me, I was still really scared of them. (I mean, the top of my head barely came up to their knees!!!) Anyway, Tonya talked to the owners about them for a while, and when they left to continue their walk, Tonya couldn't stop talking about. Now, I don't see the big, I mean they were definitaley not as cute as me, right?! Oh, and Tonya noticed that both of the owners had big gloves on that Tonya said they used to wipe off the dog's drool! (Glad I don't have that problem!) Anyway, I had a really fun time at the dog park, but unfortunately, Tonya forgot to bring her camera! So she doesn't have any pictures of me at the dog park, and, plus, the computer with all of Tonya's pictures on it ( we have 2 computers, and only one has pictures on it) isn't working, so Tonya is REALLY sorry that there are no pictures to this post, but she says she will post some pictures of me as soon as the computer is fixed.


  1. I'm glad you had a good walk in the park.

  2. Oh my goodness, Sammy - how exciting!! I'm sorry you didn't get photos coz it would have been nice to see them. My humans say that next to fawn, brindle is their favourite colour. I had a giggle when I heard about the special gloves to wipe off drool...hmm, what a great idea instead of a towel! :-)

  3. Sammy!! We happened to notice your name while reading Honey's blog. OMD, how come we never come across your blog! Thank you so much for linking your blog to ours. We'll add your name to our Cavalier friends' list so the chief editor of our blog (aka mom) would remember where to check out the cutest Cavalier.

    two wagging tails,

  4. Don't worry about the photos Sammy, our human always forgets to bring the camera...or she remembers to bring it and forgets to use it :p

    Licks and lots of slobber,
