Garrus the Great (Dane)

My high school best friend and her husband bred their Great Danes this year.
I've always wanted a dog, but Danes weren't ever on my wish-list until this beautiful fellow was deposited into my arms. He was three weeks old and only six pounds, and he tucked himself under my chin without so much as a by-your-leave.

I was completely smitten.

My doctor and I had been talking about the possibility of a service dog to assist me with balance and mobility. Because of my height, there are only four or five breeds that are suited to that purpose (at least 30.5" at the shoulder), and by a wonderful coincidence, Great Danes happened to be one of them.

In honor of a favorite Mass Effect character, I named him Garrus. He's five months old, now, and a little over 90 lbs. He's very tall, very sweet, very affectionate, far smarter than his breed is supposed to be, and thoroughly convinced that he's a lapdog.

In a word, he's wonderful.
