Just spotted (ha ha puny) the beautiful Harlequin Dane pics, and hadn't realized do many chick people are Dane people too.
We currently have Ivan, our fourth Dane, and a whopping 190 lean pounds. He's about to turn five, and has just started having cardiomyopathy. We're crushed, and hate being on this roller coaster... We've had two close calls that required CPR...but no congestive heart failure at all. Expensive meds, and a very bored dog that is sick of being kept to a walk constantly. Our last Danes made it to 9 (cancer) and 14.5, so this is a new world for us. Anybody have experience?
This is our first dane. Shes 2 and healthy...knock on wood. we havent had any issues with her...we have more problems with our mutt seizures and some other problems. When I always thought mutts were suppose to be healthier. :( Storm is only 110-120lb maybe. Shes not as big as I have seen some!
