    I too get uneasy around very large dogs. My sister had a Great Dane. Its ears reached my forehead….and I’m nearly 6’0

    I am uneasy around any dog I just met.

    We were sent to countryside to grandparents as children and they had a German shepherd. I’m sure it was just friendly and liked us, but I found it unnerving when a dog taller than me when on back paws puts his front paws on my shoulders.

    My aunt had a dog that would regularly look my 6’4" dad in the face, big and looong legs. But she was very protective of my aunt, so she had to be locked up or put out for saftey when more than 2 or 3 people came over.

    Went to the home of a man who owed me some money.
    He saw me coming from a couple hundred feet away and launched his 140 lb Rottweiler in my direction. Knowing I had no escape, I sat on the ground and became as peaceful as I could and spoke to him quietly as he approached with the hair on his back standing up.
    By the time Mr Deadbeat got to the scene, Rotty was upside down across my lap and I was scratching his chest.
    Mr D looked down at us, “Twenty-five hundred dollars for a watchdog and THIS is what I got?”
    So I looked up at him and said, “Yeah, and look at what HE got.”
    Thinking about it later, I realized I likely could have walked away with the dog . . . debt settled.

    I love Irish wolfhounds – they look like large clotheshorses covered with coconut matting.


    My daughter has a great dane – he is HUGE. On his hind legs (paws on my shoulders) he towers over me (mind, I’m only 5’3"). Fortunately he is the sweetest-natured creature possible – though he could drown you in drool.

    Dawwwwwwww. Big Shirley looks very cute (and somewhat puzzled) in this one. As everyone has said here, large dogs tend to be quite friendly—it’s the little dogs ya gotta watch out for…

    Rexxster: I agree, Big Shirley looks like a boar, not a dog.

    As to Grandma’s recipe; sounds like the cranberries ARE the surprise. Yeeccch.

    In my experience big dogs are clueless as to how large they are. The problem is that they can knock you over without trying to, meaning to, or realizing it. Little dogs, on the other hand, are acutely aware of how small they are, and cop an attitude to try to compensate for it. Mid-sized dogs, which covers a wide range and the vast majority, are a crapshoot. They have their own personalities, so can be sweethearts or Big Blue Meanies.

    That teensy dish of dog food ain’t gonna cut it. Shirley needs a bathtub!
