Dane Owner's Checklist

The Dane Owner's Checklist

  • a five-year-old girl approaches to ask, "Why are you walking that baby cow?"

  • a car drives by, stops, and backs up to you. The driver rolls down his window to ask, "Excuse me, that's a dog, isn't it?" When you say yes, he turns to his wife and says, "See, I told you so, nobody walks a deer!" and drives away

  • a six-year-old boy takes one look at your dog and says, "Wow! I bet he could eat a whole roll of toilet paper in one gulp!"

  • the big people walking the little dog always say "I don't know how she does it."

  • you see a Chihuahua and you mutter under your breath, "My dog craps bigger than that!"

My Great Dane has ARTHRITIS.
Does yours?

We tried various brands of "glucosamine with chondriotin" pills on our elderly Great Dane, Merlin, and he didn't get the relief we were looking for – until we switched to a special LIQUID formulation.

I highly recommend a liquid glucosamine with chondroitin formula to anyone whose dog is suffering from arthritis or hip dysplasia. Liquid formulations offer a much faster and more efficient absorption rate compared to pills.

Merlin, who recently celebrated his 10th birthday, is feeling much better now, and I'm completely sold on the product!

  • your new neighbor excitedly told you he found bear tracks in the garden

  • someone explained the word oxymoron when you introduced your "baby" Great Dane

  • your dog woke you up in the middle of the night to warn you of the dangers of a kitchen chair, then (a week later) slept through the theft of your valuables

  • the painter you hired to paint the cathedral ceiling in your living room told you that he would be happy to paint the ceiling but "you have strange water marks up there and maybe you should have the roof checked first."

  • the people stopped you in the street to take a picture of their 5-year-old sitting under your dog
