My wife named him Tai (means “giant” in a few Asian languages). He is an 8 week old pure bred Great Dane and is already over 20 lbs. Mom and Dad are both close to 200lbs, so he’s probably going to be a big boy. We picked him up in Maine yesterday and spent about 11 hours in the car. Here he is in the back seat:

At my age a puppy of any breed would likely out live both myself & my wife if vetrinarian fees in Edmonton did not kill us off even earlier than simply aging. Soooo I walk in the park that our home backs onto & enjoy everyone else’s pets. It is an off-leash area & they all come over for a visit & a pet & a talking to. Makes for a pleasant hour.

Congrats on the dog, hes a good lookin boy for sure. I like the name as well. Id suggest a membership to BJ’s or Costco, youre gonna need the BIG bag of dog food. Looks liek your kids got a new best buddy.

Big dogs bring big turds. He’s a nice lookin dog though.

Lee, Danes only live 6 to 7 years, but they are probably the most laid back, sweetn and gentle dogs out there (as well as the biggest). Chris, we have kids, we already have costco membership :)

My brother has 2 big dogs and 1 little one, and he says he’d rather deal with the big turds – you can see them easier.
