My Sweetie

When we moved into our apartment, I had a lot of concerns for Gunther's needs. I'd done a lot of research and talked to people who had great danes and had made the move to smaller living space and done really well. So I had an idea about how things would go. BUT, no two danes are a like and in the back of my mind I still worried.
Gunther has always been great in the car, and he did exceptional on the trip. When we arrived I thought his nose would fall off from all the sniffing he was doing. While he was doing his potty thing Sara and GT went up to the apartment and opened it up so that we could start unloading the big truck. With them not in sight, Gunther sniffed his way right to them. (My little tracker).

I wanted Gun to get to know our new space and find a place in the apartment where he was comfortable. He did, he actually has two spaces. The one that surprises me is the balconies. I have two balconies here and he LOVES them. The pictures are of him discovering the first one. I personally think he feels like he can rule from up above everyone. ;-)

Gunther really loves going out on the balcony and watching everyone. So many people go by and give him compliments and are amazed because they have never seen a big dog like him. There has been a few times where other dane owners have fell in love with him and that's been nice. I am sure that Gunther knows when they are talking about him and saying nice things because he'll stand a little taller and look so majestic.
My sweetie is doing well.

I had the same concern when my family decided to move to a smaller house. We have 4 dogs. One of them is a Great Dane and the other is a Labrador. Yes, they're both huge dogs. But my mom has a good way of training them to keep complaints from neighbors.
