Not quite Neil. He does own the gaucho/couch. That however is the only furniture he is allowed on at home or in the Moho. I suppose that is why he gets so excited when we start to load the Moho. He does however have five double size doggy beds at home. One in front of the TV, one next to my chair where I play on my laptop, one in the living room, one upstairs in the sun-room, and one in our bedroom. He does like a choice of where he sleeps but all his beds are on the floor. Like I said he is really spoiled.

He can turn around in the Moho between the beds. He has to kind of scrunch his rear up on one bed while he does his best to curl up enough to change direction. It will be interesting to see if he can sill do it when he gets older.

Life just isn't the same without a Great Dane or two in the household.

Cheers, Dan

Have fun!

So sorry to hear that you lost your harlequin dane, Sandy!! I have to say though, I hope Drake gets to 12 years old. What a great life span for a Dane! Drake is a complete sweetie too!

I love doggie pictures and stories in the morning. Just makes you grin.

So other than just making sure the place we are staying accepts dogs of his size, there is not much too worry about. I would like to know how the camper shell works out. Right now we have travel crates for both dogs. My husband really wants to get a camper shell for them instead. (We are still a long way from going out due to cleaning and some renovation on our A/S)

This makes me feel better. There is nothing worse than feeling you've abandoned them at the boarding facility. Though honestly, they go to a doggie daycare place and I think secretly enjoy playing with all the dogs.

As for you, Minnie's mate, you know there is really no way to reply to that, except to laugh. Thanks for the giggle over my coffee!

Well we just put on a camper top on the back of our truck, and I special ordered the top with the 50% sliding glass on each side with darker tint to help with the sun and get a better breeze in the back. I did not just want the little glass on the sides that popped out I wanted them to have as much of an opening as they could. I also put down a pet bed for each of the 3 (labs) that travel in the back, and then we have 2 weenie dogs that ride up front in the cab. And now everyone is comfy and we love to travel with our pups. That is the reason that we got into camping, did not like to board my furry babies, and did not like paying per head when we could FIND a nice pet friendly hotel

Before Hagar we had two Danes, Gus and Lil. They rode in a camper shell all the time. Gus who weighed about 185 lbs. figured out if he pushed hard enough on the back window it would flex and pop open. We were in a hardware store when the electric doors opened and we could hear a commotion in the front of the store. Here was Gus strolling down the main aisle. I installed some cleats on the sides and back and tied the back window closed after that.

Hagar on the other hand won't get near the truck. If I go anywhere near the back of the shell he runs and hides. Irene even tried to ride in the back with him and he just shakes the whole time. This is one of the reasons we have the Airstream.

Irene is Norwegian but I consider the Swedes and Danes and all the Scandinavians to be VIKINGS.

Cheers, Dan

Smart boy, was Gus. He showed you! Leave him in the truck...HA! Was the entire store laughing?

Poor Hagar. Is Hagar a storm/sound sensitive dog? Is it to loud for him? Or does the shell just scare him? Drake has ridden in his crate in the back and seemed ok with it. He just likes to go. He gets upset when we train using the ramp, because we don't actually leave the driveway.

Yes Gus was quite the character. He was into everything and always the center of attention.

Hagar like all our Danes is a rescue and he has gotten over his other issues but that one remains a mystery. He really is a great dog so I guess we will just use the Airstream more than the pick-up.

Cheers, Dan

Both our dogs are rescue dogs as well, and sometimes you never find out. Hagar looks really cute. I love that picture.

Thanks - we miss him horribly. His name was Bongo - hence my screen name "Bonginator". We console ourselves knowing that we had a very long time with him given Dane lifespan. We also had an Old English Mastiff, Miss Gracie, that lived to 11 - must be something in the Pro Plan we fed both of them!

Thanks for this thread - although it may result in us getting another gentle giant.
