Great Dane Tries To Ignore Pesky New Puppy
Get a puppy, they said... It will be fun, they said. Watch and laugh as patient Ellie tries to ignore seven-week-old Mikey's assault on her ears and head!
Mikey is new to the house, and for that matter - new to the world as well. As it goes with the youngsters of all species, they just want to have it carfree all day long, grab a bite, have their revitalizing zzz's and of course - explore the world around. And, in their term, exploring means threading on, tasting, licking, chewing, gnawing and occasionally getting into serious trouble. But there is no trouble on the horizon this time because patient Ellie is here as a big sis guardian. She is big alright and guardian in the blood. Nothing bad will happen to Mickey while she is here. But, can we get to say the same about Eles's safety? Watch the video at the top of the page!
Mickey is allover Elie! He is trampling on her head, chewing her snout and ears, trying to go make her stand up and trying to entice her into playing with him. It is all play with Mickey and Elie just wants a few minutes to rest on the beautiful living room carpet. At times, watching the video, you just wich to shoo Mickey away and leave some space for the black mountain of a dog who is now playing his victim. But Elie doesn't seem to share this notion. Her patience and understanding are simply astounding. It looks as if she can remember the days when she was nothing but a small pup and did exactly the same!
Cannes astound us sometimes with their gentleness and understanding. They are so intuitive and insightful that you might think they have attended special training in pup rearing. We just wish that some people followed their lead and behaved exactly like them.
On the Topic of Great Danes, take a look at another video where one Dane dreamed to be a great cattle dog.
This is a story of the Great Dane who always dreamed of being a cattle dog. The Dane, called Elliot, had all it took to be Great in keeping cattle at bay: high-energy, working ethics, high level of devotion to his owner and family i.e. management, was good to work both in a team and take responsibility and take proactive decisions as an individual. However, our Dane, as all the great stories of success and achievement go, was not born in the right bloodline.
Eliot was intended to be primarily family pet and, despite his size, he was to live on the farm without being given extraordinary duties, except providing an occasional deep-throated bark to help guard the property against robbers. This did not discourage Eliot from working on fulfilling his lifelong dream. He was always a good dog patiently waiting for his chance. And the chance finally came. Watch the video and see what happened!
The Friesdale horses on the farm always loved to play and splash in the pond. He was observing them from the distance and, although they were having such a good time, he knew he had to pull them out to safety. Elliot hated when people and animals went into the water because he was secretly afraid of it. He went on telling, warning the horses to stay away, but they just would not listen! Despite his fear, Eliot knew that now was the perfect time to show his cattle management skills and fulfill his dream. Watch him go!
