Goliath easily comes in at 6'5" on his hind legs, as imp can verify, and weighs in at 140 down from 155.

What usually shocks people the most is that he is still such a big baby and gets his feelings hurt soooo easily.

Definitely. Spoiled. But he was that what when I got him*.


*that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

As I'm a cat person, I really don't know much about dogs. I like them, I'm just terrible at handling them much.

About two-three weeks ago, I was in and out of a client's office (very low key and friendly) when two people came in with what I think is was a Great Dane (I'm terrible with breeds, but I did a quick google for pics: I think it was a Great Dane). Walking on all fours, their puppy was about 42" tall (not sure). She was two years old and somewhat shy, but happy. It also seemed she wasn't too comfortable with relatively penned in places as that office is one of those seemingly maze-like cubicle setups, tight hallways, etc. I walked in behind her and she looked a little uncertainly and underconfident. One of her owners talked to her, indicating that she's a little overwhelmed with being surrounded with so many new people.

Even though she could easily stand taller than me on her hind feet, she really struck me as a very well-behaved young child. I'd daresay she was happier, affectionate, and better behaved than most human children I know. Beautiful disposition and sweet.
