Life with Barnaby is never dull, but he is starting to slow down into a gentle giant.
I see glimmers of hope. LIke when he gently plays with a small puppy.
Or allows a young child to pet him and even sit on him!
I can actually tire him out now. He even naps!
But, he's still mentally a 20 pound puppy in a 150 pound body! If you squat down in the dog park to pet a puppy or small dog, he will try to sit on your lap. And down you'll both go.
So, we still visit the dog park daily, so he can play with his favorite Great Dane friends, Tyrion and Ezri. Some days they are the Three Musketeers, but normally they play more like the Three Stooges.
Barnaby is a giant goofball that makes me laugh. Life with Barnaby is an adventure.
