She's big... And she's sweet... And she's a really big chicken.
It would seem, however, that whenever Nat makes an appearance at the dog park, people are stricken with a case of "Captain Obvious" syndrome.
After 2 years, I should probably be used to it, but the stoopid things that come out of people's mouths never cease to amaze me...
Obvious Observations About Great Danes
- "Wow! That's a big dog!"
Obviously my favorite, to which I'd like to respond, "Do you think so?"
- "Your dog's paws are huge!"
Really? They seem small to me....
- "She must eat a lot!"
Far less than a human 3 year-old.
- "I don't have to bend over to pet your dog; That's really cool."
I never realized that. Thanks for pointing it out!
- "I bet your dog could eat me!"
She's far more likely to crush you when trying to crawl into your lap.
- "Cool dog! What kind is it?!?"
- "Your dog is so big, I bet I could ride it,"
Oh? You double as a circus monkey?
- "You have a horse!"
Sure, if a horse is 36" tall and weighs 120 pounds...
- "That's a dog?"
No. She's a squirrel.
- "I bet it poops a lot."
I bet you poop a lot...
As for Natty, she's just happy people are paying attention to her.
