    Great Danes are known to be very sweet natured dogs, who have no idea of their own size. Even when fully grown, they still think it's allright for them to sit in your lap. If a Chihuahua barks at them, chances are the Great Dane will run away from fear, because the Chihuahua has the same problem as the Great Dane, only reversed: has no idea how small it is

    I remember seeing an interview with Linda Thompson and her recalling a trip she and Elvis took to the pet store, (after hours of course) anyway they proceeded to buy all the puppies, totalling about 15. They then loaded them up and brought them home in their Lincoln or Cadillac, I'm not sure which. Can you imagine driving home with all those puppies running loose in your car? and your Elvis. From all accounts he loved animals.

    My parents used to have a dachshund, they have the same problems. (h)
