I have a yellow lab/golden retriever mix that is right around 100 pounds. I am 5'2" and when he stands up he puts his paws on my shoulders and we dance. I just had have my 80 pound black lab/mix pound puppy put to sleep two weeks ago. He was only 6 and it was actually one of the hardest things I have done. I had signed DNR papers on my dad, and that was bad, but at least I knew his wishes. Sorry for the emotional outburst, mornings were our time, he was my shadow until I left for work. In the mean time, my mom's nasty little teacup poodle/rat is going on 12.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. At least you've got a big goofy golden dog to help out with them. They're good medicine. :)

Thank you, and you are darn straight about the big goofy dog. He has seemed a little lost, but I have never seen such a happy, tail-never-stop- wagging dog. Except that time at a campfire and a marshmallow fork got stuck to his tail and he was running around in pure terror.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the tongue acquires the stain, the stain become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

I was thinking the same thing.

CSB- my buddy John had *sniff...had* a Great Dane/Mastiff mix dog named Brutus. That big boy was 220 lbs and could dance with John on his hind legs with his front legs on his shoulders. He joined puppy heaven just last week, but ripe old age of 10, despite his size and the proclivity for heart problems in those breeds.

/miss you, Brutus

Is that an English mastiff? I visited someone recently who had one. A gentle dog, but freaking big and still very much a curious "pup" at age two. Kind of a pain that he could easily stick his nose in my face and hair whenever I sat down, because he could reach right into any personal space I'd try to create by slouching, crossing a leg to make a barrier of sorts, etc.

What the hell is that!!!???

Would love to have one if I had the space... and a truck to pick up the amounts of shiat it produces...

It's a Newfoundland. We had a Newfie when I was growing up, she was the best/worst dog ever. The gentlest, kindest dog I ever knew but an constantly slobbering, shedding beast. My parents used to send me out the back door as a decoy so mom could make it to the car on Sunday morning without her nice church clothes getting slobbered on. They didn't care that I would be a mess.

I'd get another Newf in an instant if I had the room for one.

Yep, had one myself for about 10 years. Very affectionate. Loved to lie on top of you (all 130 lbs of her) and lick your face. Big dogs don't live as long though. I'd think about getting another but your lucky to get 10 years out of one and I just don't know if I can deal with such a short time span again.


My parents have one that just passed his 12th birthday. Fantastic breed, as you both said, and they (we) are very lucky he's lived so long.

South African Boerboel. He was about 2 there, so again in the puppy stage.
He was scary fast...here's a picture of him eating a squirrel he caught in the garden...

The_good_doctor: anuran: I love dogs but wouldn't want a giant breed.
Their lives are short even by dog standards and often filled with pain. The canine frame just doesn't work with those dimensions and weight.

This, a dog even slightly larger than it's general breed will get lots of joint/bone and heart issues.(same as "giant" humans). Can't imagine what these dogs would go through.


We had a chocolate lab growing up, wasn't papered purebred but could fool breeders. All of his littermates were pretty big - girls pushing 90, boys pushing 100. Ours was the runt. He peaked at 165; which was what i weighed at the time so wrestling was a pretty even match. As he got older, we put him on some meds that helped get his weight down to 140, but he was just a big dog (broadest chest I have ever seen on that breed). He was a country dog, so it was pretty hard to control his diet.

He lived a good 13 years, before passing one Thanksgiving night. Part of me worries that it was just too much excitement from everyone coming home; but I really hope he just held on to see everyone one last time.

/now I have a 75 lb. shephard in the city
//gets very confused when people tell me he is a big dog.

2 Irish Wolfhounds and 2 Jack Russels. Not many creatures venture into the yard, let alone make it out.
 
2012-05-16 09:24:35 AM  

Maggie_Luna: I would have one if I had the room and the strength to restrain one until properly trained because holy hell those dogs a big.

What was the wolf like dog? I thought it was a wolf. Is it part wolf?


My first thought is Scottish Deerhound, or Irish Wolfhound. I used to walk a Scottish Deerhound, he was like a small horse. His name was Stretch LOL.

Whenever people drove by us walking, they would pretty much hang out their window like "what the hell IS that?!?!" He was one of the most gentle dogs.

I also walked a Newfoundland. He was sweet as anything, but they drool sooo much, you pretty much need a towel handy at all times. They also had a Leonberger, also a pretty large dog, and a chocolate lab who looked small compared to those too.

:) good times.

AverageAmericanGuy: I saw a huge Great Dane/Dalmatian mix in Kirkland yesterday.

I wouldn't say it was cute, but it had presence.


Sounds like you saw a Harlequin colored Great Dane. I've always wanted one of those, but I don't think I could handle the cow patties I'd have to clean up every day.
 
2012-05-16 09:52:30 AM  
That first photo is a clever angle, I doubt it's that big. We had a few of those (well, my Mom did). Sweet dogs that mostly just laid around the house all day. ~150lbs a piece. If they didn't want to go anywhere they'd just sit down and there they stayed.

Newfs are the gentlest dogs. Here's a video of one grooming the family cat. Notice that this gentle beast doesn't care the cat is attacking it.

Newfs are considered a working dog breed and are used as water rescue animals. Like all big dogs, they don't tend to bark -- they don't need to -- but their large brains means that they can open doors, drawers and counter or table surf.

There are 2 words explaining why I'd never get a big breed: Drool Rag.

yuck.

I'd love to make friends with big doggies, but I suspect I'll never have the living space or financial stability to keep one. (Or any dog that isn't made of plush or robotic for that matter... such is the lot of one still living with one's parents while slogging through college.)
 
2012-05-16 12:57:43 PM  
An ex's aunt used to have a Newfie dog. It was actually average sized for the breed, but it was still massive. So gentle and kind. Of course he was named Bear. He was killed when he was hit by a car. Often wondered about the damage inflicted to car if the impact could kill a newfie.

And a neighbour at a place I used to live at had a huge 200lb Bull Mastiff. Super gentle, but when he wagged his tail, it actually hurt if you got it in the leg.
