Choosing my first Great Dane Car

Well technically, I didn’t choose my first car but I know my breeder helped Robert (owner) with the selection. After looking at pre-owned cars online, Robert went with a Nissan X-trail which provides plenty of room for me to grow. The high ceiling and fold down back seats creates huge cabin space for me to roam around in.

Having said that, Robert knows that it is important that we are all safe when on the road so we typically use a Great Dane dog seat belt when we travel.

Whilst the Nissan is good fun and I would love to learn how to get my L plates I think I will wait until I am a little bit older before getting behind the wheel.

Great Dane Puppies love to sleep

At 12 weeks I am a ball of energy but I also crash and burn.

My favourite thing to do is sleep on one of my four beds that I have.  I encourage my owner to buy Snooza beds as they are Australian made and also by far the most comfy dog beds going around.

Working out who is boss!

The first week was quite an adjustment to my new surroundings. I discovered a play mate but I don’t know at this stage whether the friendship goes both ways.

One night I waited patiently for him to get off the chair but all he could do is stair at me! Friend or foe?

Are you going to come down from there?

After the Mexican stand off the night before I spotted my friend in the backyard. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to have a play.

So after unsuccessfully playing with the black cat. I decided to start claiming my territory, starting with his bed!

I believe it is rightfully mine

The day I chose my owner

What a day!  Im exhausted after selecting my new best friend Robert.  My new owner is luck to have me and took his time selecting me from my 5 other brothers

Initially, I thought Robert preferred one of my brothers as he was getting all the cuddles.  Fortunately, when I snuck in for a cuddle I also gave him a little love bite.  Just so that I stood out from the crowd

Great Dane Puppies. My brothers

As a Great Dane puppy, we are all very cute but we have a unique ability to sense when the right owner comes along and Robert was it!

I remember Robert slowly deselecting one brother at a time until there was only two of us left.  I became a shadow of Robert and that convinced him to finally select me!

Robert (dad) and I went into the other room together where we had our first ever photo together.

That same day, I experienced my first car ride.  I wasn’t sure about the the journey but once we were on the road, it all worked out.

Not sure about this car ride business!

Whilst the highlight of the day was having been selected by Robert, I was pretty happy with the new digs in Kew, Melbourne and of course my new water bowl and bed
