    >Great Dane puppies ... those things must be huge!

    But I'll bet they're all paws at this point.

    Very nice profile shot Ken. :)

    My dogs always turn and look at me, so I can't seem to get that profile shot. I'll have to give it more attempts, just for you! :D

    edit: you know, I can just *see* her twitching her nose! :)

    We'll have some new pets by Wednesday- fish! My dad had a tropical aquarium when I was a kid and I've always wanted a tank myself, but we didn't have room. We spent three days last week tidying up the house and rearranging the furniture in the lounge, and now I have a nice 45l (12 US gallon) bowl type tank. The water needs to settle for a few more days and then I can introduce some hardy fish. I think I'm going to go for fancy goldfish rather than tropical fish, I like their little wiggly tail fins. Anyway, the dog has noticed the tank but hasn't paid it any attention as it doesn't smell of biscuits or cats. ;)

    and that means . . . ?

    Here in the States, our water is well behaved and settles promptly when we give it the "settle" command. ;-)

    mrsd,

    I would strongly recommend that you use the "bacteria in a bottle" to help equilibrate your tank.

    I had a number of "donor" fish (fish that died and helped me by giving off bacteria in their death) until my tank fully settled and I had even let the water stand in the tank for over a month! It needed some bacteria to balance the good/bad stuff as well as to help with the pH. I added the bacteria in a bottle and some crystals to neutralize the pH and now both tanks are quite enjoyable to watch. :)

    It's running through the filter (biological and chemical) and getting all the nasty stuff out :)

    And yes, I've put the appropriate chemicals in to neutralise things like the chlorine in the tap water. I shall take a small sample back to the shop for them to test before I buy any fish.

    P.S. Hopper, I'm Brightside not Chris!

    You need to keep an eye out.

    I heard about this one young fish that snuck into the filter and jammed it with a pebble so that the rest of the fish could escape when the owner was cleaning all the gunk out of the tank.

    I'm not sure exactly where this happened. Somewhere in Australia I think.

    oh, Brightside, I don't know why I thought it said from mrsd! SORRY. :(

    I had fish tanks since I was a kid and these two tanks here in FL have given me more trouble than all those other tanks put together! I never had to deal with the chemicals, other than the de-chlorinator, before I started up my tanks down here. But they're happy now and one of my fish is going to be a mommy! :D

    LOL@graf! :)

    I remember reading about that fish, grav, they made a movie about it, they called it: "The fish who put the pebble in the filter" I think. ;)

    but it took more than one try to get the pebble to work properly. Perseverance was called for.

    I'm flattered that Hopper thought I was someone as nice as you mrsd :)

    Hopefully I'll be off to get fish tomorrow, as long as our staff meeting finishes early enough. If not, it'll be Thursday.

    Got pictures of the Great Dane puppies... <br /> <br />She said these are old now. They're all about 15-20 pounds a piece. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1NyIW3UMzomuklhL0bscp L7uYUDuL0" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1NyIW3UMzomuklhL0bscpL7uYUDuL0_t humb.jpg" border="0" /> <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1PUHzwvqCVqQA6BUoxMed uo0AW1te1" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1PUHzwvqCVqQA6BUoxMeduo0AW1te1_t humb.jpg" border="0" />

    They're in Virginia... not sure she can ship one to ya overnight.

    I honestly don't even know what she's doing with them when they're old enough to leave. She already has Ginger and Austin. Not sure if she'll keep a new puppy or what. I believe she has a sizable backyard, but it's not THAT big. They just moved there when her husband was stationed at Norfolk.

    If she keeps them she'll need a wheelbarrow for poop patrol.

    The problem is that I live in an apartment. They do allow us to have small pets but a Great Dane won't qualify as a small pet after a few weeks days. :(

    When I was visiting my friend last year and i got to meet Ginger and Austin, I was a bit intimidated at first. Then they tried to become lapdogs and i realized that their bark is WAY worse than their bite!

    Ever had a great dane try to curl up in your lap?! not the most comfortable thing in the world! :-)

    I've got fish! 4 fancy goldfish- one black moor, a calico one, a white one with a red spot on its head and a "blue" one who's a sort of shiny grey with a lumpy head (called a "crown" apparently). I shall take a sample of the tank water back to the shop next week to be tested- if it's ok I shall be able to put a couple more in. Apparently you can get panda moors- I've put a request in for one :)

    I used to babysit for a family who had a Great Dane. They are HUGE dogs, but babies in personality. :)

    The boys are now 1 1/2 years old, and still love each other. <br /> <br />For being brothers, they're very different animals. Cloudy weighs about 9 pound, is very active, and likes feather toys, whereas Sunny tips the scales at 14 pounds, likes to sleep, and prefers little balls of scrap paper on the tile floors. <br /> <br />They, like all cats are solar powered. Here you see them sunning themselves on the blanket-covered hope chest in front of the bedroom window. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1YFK5DEebgjh3Cv5aYB9o 6XALq9a9p" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1YFK5DEebgjh3Cv5aYB9o6XALq9a9p_t humb.jpg" border="0" />

    No need to single out a shot or two in this thread. Enjoy them all because in spite of what the Surgeon General might say repeatedly in his warnings, you CAN NOT overdose on cuteness!

    I love the boys in the sun photo! :D

    Thomas, do you mind if I send that photo via email to my sister? She has two cats who both love to sit in the seat by the window. I don't think they have ever been caught grooming each other though! :)

    Go for it Hopper. Send it to whomever you like. Use it as a wallpaper, or for a calendar, or even for a tattoo. I love it when people like my photos! :)

    These two have groomed each other since we got them as kittens. Again they differ there. Cloudy washes Sunny in the "dry clean" method. When he's done, Sunny is just slightly damp.

    But when Sunny bathes Cloudy... Cloudy is usually soaked!
