"The canine population of the United States is about 25 million.
Out of this, about 25 million can be classified as neurotic - a conservative estimate."
--Stephen Baker _How To Live with a Neurotic Dog_ (1960)

Rest in peace Sweet Girl.

Mastiff / Great Dane mix:

She almost seems to have a Mastiff head with a Dane body. She's taller than a pure Mastiff but not as wide - not as tall as a pure Dane. She is actually very slim, almost like a giant Greyhound. But she's got the big head :) Her paws are huge. At first glance she might resemble a VERY large Black Lab. Once you get over this, you'll see that she is something quite different indeed.
